Absorb Elements 5e Spell hold into one’s possession of the incoming Energy It is an effect on storing for your melee attack in D&D.
The spell catches some of the incoming energy, decrease its effect on you and save it for your next melee attack. You have immunity to the triggering destruction type until you start the next turn. Also, the first time when you hit with a melee attack on your next turn, the target takes an extra 1d6 damage of the triggering damage type and the spell will be end.
At higher level:
At Higher Levels When we cast this spell using a spell aperture of 2nd level or higher and then the extra damage will be increase by 1d6 for each aperture level above 1st.
This give the impression to be the caster avoids some of the incoming destruction, but it isn’t expressed as explicitly as similar aptitude of other spells such as the Shield spell which expressed (in part).
Before start of your next turn, you have a +5 bonus to AC, including against the any triggering attack.
Since there is no confine between fluff and crunch in spells it is rule to effect the whole spell. These effect says that it lessens the effect of the triggering destruction when you wonder “how?”, so we can say the effect take place due to resistance.

D&D 5e is somewhat resistant to fine-grained timing evaluation and doesn’t appear to try to pin down a precise tick-by-tick arranging to things that could be bent on simply by the DM saying, “Yes, it does what it observes on the tin.” Since any other sense makes the spell not do what its effect says it does, the sense that lacks internal contradiction is the correct one.
Absorb Elements give you twice resistance to damage from the triggering attack. When any character casts Absorb Elements, the absorb elements spell works in opposition to the spell that triggers it.
The resistance applies to the triggering destructive attack and will continue till lasts, for that damage type only, until the starting of your next turn (which may be the same round as the attack or the next round, its depend on initiative order).
If we observe an eldritch knight is hit with a fireball. The character has feat Shield Master and the Absorb Elements spell. The feat use them in such a way that to take no damage if they save, while the spell help them resistance to the damage. Both features require a reaction. Then if they have to choose which option to use before making the save, or can they use their reaction after rolling the save, in which case they would use the feat if they save and the spell if they don’t? Then we can say it depends on the ability that is triggering the reaction, for Absorb Elements it triggers “when you take destructive damage”. That would be take place after you make your saving throw. You can use Shield master triggers when you “succeed on your saving throw”.
The most useable sequence of events would be:
1) You should Make save.
2) If save is successful then use Shield Master then there is no damage.
3) If save fails then cast Absorb Elements it will take half damage.
The absorb element 5e spell has a two-stage effects. When the caster is struck by an attack that deals an elemental type of destructive damage (defined as an acid, cold, fire, lightning, or thunder in 5e), this spell can absorb up to 1d6 per spell slot level used to cast it (1d6 is used for casting at 1st level; 2d6 is used for casting at 2nd level etc.). At the first stage the spell also grants resistance against that type of destructive demage until the coming turn of caster’s. The second level comes when the caster makes a melee attack in opposition to an enemy before the end of their next turn. When they strike with melee attack, the absorbed energy will be released as part of the damage.
After all this happened the spell will be sound very powerful but its only guaranteed effect in the damage mitigation side. For example if the parties are fighting in opposition of a caster and creatures from the elemental plane of fire that will be use the fire attacks then a melee attack against a fire creature would not hurt it any more by releasing fire destructive damage into it. By taking the half-damage from a clump of fire-based creatures that are attacking the creature makes this spell highly useful as a defensive spell.
