In place of the wizard’s normal weapons, this spell creates several small globes of fire, one for each level of experience the wizard has gained. Meteors are often hurled at targets up to 90 yards away and are treated as missiles, providing a +5 bonus to attack rolls. Each meteor explodes into a 1-foot diameter sphere upon impact, dealing 1d4+3 points of injury plus 3 points of fireside damage to all creatures struck by it. The wizard can hurl up to 5 missiles per round.
In the case of Assassins or Blackguards, “Melf’s Minute Meteors” are often combined with their “Poison weapon” skill. Summon six tiny meteors. When you cast a 5e spell, as a bonus action, you’ll gain two meters. When the meteor reaches its target, it explodes, causing damage to everyone within the explosion’s radius.
Upon casting this spell, the wizard can cast small globes of fireside (one for each level of experience he has reached), each of which bursts into a 1-foot diameter sphere upon impact, inflicting 1d4 points of damage to the creature struck. Additionally, it is capable of igniting combustible materials (even solid planks). The wizard treats the meteors as missiles and adds a +2 bonus to the attack rolls and removes the range penalty. It is treated as a grenade-like missile that inflicts one injury point on creatures within three feet of it.
The spell is often cast in either of two ways:
- The wizard discharges five meteors every round (see Chapter 9: Combat, “Multiple Attacks and Initiative”). Note that this effect carries over into the subsequent round.
- B) The wizard discharges only one meteor per round. The caster may also perform other actions within the round, including spellcasting, melee attacks, or the use of devices in addition to releasing the missile.If the spell requires concentration in 5e, the wizard must omit the remainder of the missiles to focus on concentration. Additionally, if the wizard fails to keep track of the number of missiles remaining, he has involuntarily lost the remaining portion of the spell.
The spell actually creates six small meteors in your space. During a spell’s duration, they float around you in the air as well as orbit you. When you cast the spell- and also as a bonus action on each of your subsequent turns- as well as you will easily expend one or two meteors and also sending them streaking toward the purpose alternatively points that you choose within 120 feet of you.
