I'm considering picking up Melf's Minute Meteors (from Elemental Evil) since it allows me to spread my damage out a bit and still cast a cantrip or other spell on my turn. However, I'm a little curious about this component of the text [emphasis mine]:
You create six tiny meteors in your space. They float in the air and orbit you for the spell's duration. When you cast the spell-and as a bonus action on each of your turns thereafter-you can expend one or two of the meteors, sending them streaking toward a point or points you choose within 120 feet of you. Once a meteor reaches its destination or impacts against a solid surface, the meteor explodes.
Does this mean that the meteors will explode while they orbit me, if another creature enters my space or I press against a wall without launching them? Obviously this means I make a save for damage as well, but it might change whether or not I pick up the spell.
