Lightning Lasher Ring

Ring, rare (requires attunement)

This metal ring has been treated during forging giving it a solid black color and it adorned with a yellow gem in the shape of the lightning bolt. The ring has 10 charges and regains 1d10 charges each dawn.

While wearing the Lightning Lasher Ring, you can make a ranged weapon attack as an action. The attack is resolved as if you were using a ranged weapon with which you are proficient, with a range of 30/60. Upon a successful hit, you can spend one charge and ring releases a surge of lightning energy, dealing 1d6 lightning damage.

After a successful attack the ring becomes connected to the target, and on subsequent turns you can spend another charge to do an additional 1d6 lightning damage as a bonus action. The connection is visible as a thin stream of energy between you and the target. The connection can be severed in the following ways:

  • If you make another ranged weapon attack action with the ring, successful or not.

  • If the ring runs out of charges.

  • If either you or the target moves, so the target is more than 60 feet away.

  • You or the target are knocked unconscious.

  • If you take damage, you must make a concentration check, DC 10, or the connection is severed.

Creation Notes

Inspiration words: hurl and connection.

Sort of like a TASER? I was tempted to make the target have to survive a check to not be paralyzed for a round, but it seems pretty powerful as-is.
