The Evocation wizard's 10th-level Empowered Evocation feature allows them to add an ability modifier to a spell damage roll. I'm trying to find a way to get an effect like that of Empowered Evocation at a lower character level.
How can a wizard add their ability mod to the damage roll of magic missile at a much lower character level than the Empowered Evocation feature (at level 10)?
(Warlocks can do this with eldritch blast and Agonizing Blast, and it is a very powerful combo.)
Would either of these builds work?
Take 2 levels of UA Lore Mastery wizard to get the Spell Secrets ability. This allows the wizard to change the damage type of a spell, like magic missile, from force damage to fire damage.
Multiclass into UA Phoenix Sorcerer to use the Mantle of Flame ability to add a Charisma bonus to one fire damage die roll.
- Multiclass into Draconic Bloodline sorcerer and use the Elemental Affinity feature at level 6 to add the Charisma bonus to any of the dragon ancestry damage types.
Frozen, flaming, or electric magic missiles sound kind of cool. Adding bonus damage sounds powerful.
