@bbarlach @JeremyECrawford @ChrisPerkinsDnD@JeremyECrawford @ChrisPerkinsDnD @mikemearls cleric wants to cast spiritual weapon + attack w/ it + cast cantrip. I say it’s not possible? unless something weird is happening there the caster has used his action; can't cast cantrip

Actually Spiritual Weapon used a bonus action and specifically says the created weapon attacks when first summoned. Action can then be used to cast a cantrip.
Hello the spell spiritual weapon is a bonus action and the spell also atates on casting this the player can make free attack this entire move is just a bonus action and thus the player still has a action left so he could for instance cast a cantrip and he would still have a simple action like picking up a item.
I hope this clarify’s it for you this is all adventurers legue legal.
Spiritual weapon is a Bonus action spell, that states when created may be used for an attack that round. The player still has their action to attack/cast a cantrip or anything else they can think of.
It’s a bonus action — Right here in the 5e SRD http://www.5esrd.com/?s=spiritual+weapon
