Gust of wind was an evocation or alteration spell that blew away or knocked down smaller creatures.[4][5]


This spell created a strong blast of air that originated from the caster and moved in the direction he or she was facing. The force of this gust instantly extinguished candles, torches, and other unprotected flames, while it made lanterns and other protected flames dance wildly and potentially even extinguish them too. Creatures caught in the area might also be affected.[2]

Like any natural sudden wind gust, a gust of wind could also whip up a stinging spray of sand or dust; fan a fire; blow over light awnings and hangings; cause a boat to heel; or disperse gases, clouds, or vapors, at least to the limit of its range.[4]


The spell required verbal, somatic, and material components. The material required was a legume seed.[2]


This spell was invented by the Netherese arcanist Tolodine as Tolodine's gust of wind in −2386 DR, early in the history of Netheril.[1]
