Wish was arguably the most powerful spell that a sorcerer or wizard could hope to learn.

If you had just one wish, what would it be? Gold or angel song? Finding a lost love, or finding your way back home? Let me sing a song about one wish that came true...


When cast, it allowed its caster to accomplish multiple, various effects ranging from duplicating other spell effects to altering reality to suit the caster's wish.[5]


The spell required only a verbal component to cast.[5]


The wish spell was not crafted until a hundred years after the Fall of Netheril.[9]
