I'm playing a 3.5 Druid and I'm looking for ways to weaponize the Create Water spell. My first idea was to create a long, thin column of water some 100 ft above an enemy while Wildshaped in an avian form, as per these posts. Ideally, the water would act like a waterfall or a water jet cutter crashing down on some unsuspecting baddy's head. However, due to spell's limitations on range and volume, by my calculations the best I can do at Level 6 is the force of a fire hose (300 gallons per minute) for about half a second. Not very impressive.
Instead, my thought is to create an amorphous blob of hot, almost boiling water just above an adversary and rely on the heat rather than the force of falling water to do damage. 12 gallons of scalding water to the face is no small potatoes.
My question: is this a reasonable interpretation of the Create Water spell? It doesn't say anywhere in the text that the water must appear at a certain temperature. Similarly, the text never mentions what shape you can create the water in, which seems to be the justification for allowing the water column technique I mentioned earlier. Am I on track here or completely off base?
