10. Minion of Chaos

The Minion of Chaos is a level 9 Eldritch Invocation, that lets players cast Conjure Elemental spell. While Warlocks can’t normally conjure elementals, the Minion of Chaos invocation allows them to do that. The spell summons an Elemental Creature; a minion.

9. Fiendish Vigor

Fiendish Vigor unlocks at level 2. This Invocation enables the warlock to cast a False Life Spell. The spell increases the health of Warlock from 7-12 hp. This is not much but in tricky situations, it can become useful, and using the Fiendish Vigor invocation will prevent you Warlock to get down. Also, the spell will not take any Spell slot.

8. Mask of Many Faces

Unlocking at level 2, The Mask of Many Faces buffs the Disguise Spell that you can equip. There are many situations during the dialogues that can get better if you had a different race or gender. This Spell transforms you to another race or gender to get you that better option during the conversation.

Without Mask of Many Faces Eldritch Invocation in BG3, you would have to use a spell slot if you want to change your appearance. The spell last until your long rest.


7.  Mire the Mind

This Eldritch Invocation unlocks at level 5. The Invocation allows you to use the Slow Spell arguably one the best debuff spell. The spell targets 3x Enemies and slows them down. The enemies will miss the attacks and you will have a greater chance to deal great damage to them. The Invocation is great if you deal with a larger number of enemies.

Since the Warlock does not have that many Spell slots, it is a pretty useful Invocation.
