Scorching ray was a low-powered evocation spell that blasted opponents with rays of fire.[1]

EffectsEdit

Upon successfully completing the spell, the caster aimed his or her hands at a target or multiple targets within close range and projected a number of fiery bolts. The number of rays increased with the power of the caster; the most powerful casters were said to have been capable of shooting three such rays with a single casting. Whatever the number, the flaming bolts were fired simultaneously and were limited to striking targets no more than ten yards (nine meters) away from each other.[1]

ComponentsEdit

The spell simply required verbal and somatic components.[1]

Notable UsersEdit

Scorching ray was an extremely common spell in Faerûn in the 1370s DR. So common was the spell in the lands of Unther and Thay that young adventurers were often outfitted with scrolls enwritten with the spell.[2] The following is only a short list of users of the spell, highlighting the diversity of those who have used it:
