Invisibility in 5e how does it work? – 3 Gameplay FAQs

Classically one of the most complex abilities to represent right. See, invisibility makes you, um… invisible. But most DMs just give you an advantage on stealth checks. The issue is that being invisible doesn’t give you an advantage on stealth checks. It makes it impossible to see. Suppose you are invisible and walk around a silenced sphere while interacting with no objects. Then it is IMPOSSIBLE to detect you. This would technically lead to no roll, but it isn’t clear that every DM would do this.

Here then, is the issue, what does Invisibility do mechanically? Well, bearing in mind that it makes you impossible to see, and therefore if you are ever in a situation where the only method by which someone could detect you is sight, you are invisible. You don’t roll; you automatically succeed. But the advantage of stealth checks is an excellent way to indicate that the person has an easier time hiding since their body is invisible. Lowering the DC of the check also works very often.
