This question already has an answer here:
Sorry for the noob question but i am still learning So far i have been a level 3 wizard in one of the campaigns. Every time i use a damaging spell the DM tells me to roll for attack spell (to see if hit or not). Now as i was reading about what my spells do, some say to roll for a spell attack and some do not, those who do not say to roll, do they hit?
Example: Fire bolt Vs Poison Spray, both are cantrip wizard spells
