This question already has an answer here:
Could you cast Control Winds and direct it to be a gust towards say a dragon and counter the breath weapon? I find it hard that think that in the face of winds strong enough to cut one's movement in half that an exhaled attacks wouldn't just get blown back at the attacker.
The difference is that control winds is constant turbulence of wind as opposed to warding wind's simply circling the caster. This is a difference of a small barrier trying to counter a breathe weapon versus a constant force pushing in the opposite direction.
Am I missing something about the breath weapon? Does magic simply hold a red dragon's flames in that 15 foot cone in spite of the gale blowing in the opposite direction?
Counter to the answer given; We are talking about gale force winds countering a directional breath attack. Which consist of; fire, lightning, acid, poison gas, and cold AIR! The only one I can logically see not being effected too much by strong opposing winds is the lightning. Everything else by common sense should be pushed aside by winds traveling over 40mph/60kpm. So I ask, does the spell description lacking stating such bypass common sense?
