Mage hand was a tansmutation cantrip.[5]


On casting mage hand, the caster could point at an object and move it 15 feet (4.6 meters) into any direction.[5] What happened was that a magical, ghost-like hand was conjured, which could be used to interact with objects weighing twenty pounds or less. The hand had the equivalent speed of a dwarf and could easily drop items or, given a moment, pick up new ones. With a little bit of effort, a wizard could keep the hand conjured indefinitely, though if he or she stopped attempting to do so it would dissipate within a moment of its being cast. Mage hand could be recast at any time however.[citation needed]


Casting mage hand required somatic and verbal components.[5]


Before the Spellplague, mage hand was a cantrip also castable by bards and sorcerers. Although it could only be cast a limited number of times per day during this era, its effects were otherwise the same.[citation needed]
