Flame Blade

2nd-level evocation

Casting Time: 1 bonus action

Range: Self

Components: V, S, M (leaf of sumac)

Duration: Concentration, up to 10 minutes

You evoke a fiery blade in your free hand. The blade is similar in size and shape to a scimitar, and it lasts for the duration. If you let go of the blade, it disappears, but you can evoke the blade again as a bonus action.

You can use your action to make a melee spell attack with the fiery blade. On a hit, the target takes 3d6 fire damage.

The flaming blade sheds bright light in a 10-foot radius and dim light for an additional 10 feet.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, the damage increases by 1d6 for every two slot levels above 2nd.

    Flame blade says that “You evoke a fiery blade in your free hand”. For practical purposes, lets call your free hand “Left” and your cast hand “Right” (if indeed you receive the blade in the hand you didn’t cast with)

    After casting, would you be able to equip a shield in your right hand while still maintaining concentration of the spell? ie Cast with right hand, blade appears in left hand, equip shield into right hand.
