Is there a way to basically hit someone in the face with a charged spell in hand, without provoking an attack of opportunity?
In the core rules it says that you can perform an unarmed strike or natural attack when having a spell charge in hand to discharge the spell upon striking, though when not being shapeshifted or having any feat that gives you a natural attack or improved unarmed strike, this would provoke an attack of opportunity for the guy you want to shove the spell into.
With this, would striking someone with (spiked) gauntlets be considered "touching" him? (Going as far as "removing" the metal on your fingertips?) When I learn, as a druid, to cast spells while being in wild shape, can I attack an enemy using Produce Flame with a natural attack? - The whole idea came from the want to simply smash someone's head in with a fiery fist using that spell, though AoO aren't something I want to provoke.
