If you look at the spell "Creation" Using any material created by this spell as another spell's material component causes that spell to fail. Note that this doesn't say you cannot attempt to cast the spell, it says it fails. An important note also is that you could also run into a situation in which the caster was incorrect about a component. ...

The feature is ambiguous. You should ask your DM. The Draconic Ancestry feature (PHB, 102) states At 1st level, you choose one type of dragon as your ancestor. The damage type associated with each dragon is used by features you gain later. A table is then included that lists the chromatic and metallic dragon types from the monster manual. Notably the text ...

RAW: You can only select one of the listed options. Mechanically the problem of selecting some unknown dragon should be evident in the fact your class features wouldn't have a table to refer to for Elemental Affinity. You can always ask your DM for leniency or adjustments for the subclass though.

Each description specifies targeting a second creature. Each feature description is specific to state that we may “target a second creature”. The first three ordinal numbers in English are first, second, and third; not first, second, and second. So if we target a third creature, we are contradicting both spell descriptions which specify we may only target a ...

RAW: Yes If a spell has a single target, then even after the effects of Twinned Spell or Split Enchantment, the spell itself has a single target. Neither feature modifies the spell.

Yes, the Melee Attack Damage counts as part of the overall Spell's Damage, and therefore can be affected by Empowered Spell The first thing we can say about this interaction is that, intuitively, the weapon attack is something that is done as part of the spell. If we assumed, for the sake of argument, that booming blade was being cast by a level 3 Sorcerer ...

This sounds like a mix of example of multi-hit spells and some potential future proofing because subclasses like the Loremaster Wizard from UA may eventually exist officially which allow you to change the elemental type of damage cantrips. For example, Taken from Spell Secrets When you cast a spell with a spell slot and the spell deals acid, cold, fire, ...

Draconic presence says: as if you were casting a concentration spell, which means draconic presence is treated as if you were casting a concentration spell. Therefore, all rules that apply to concentration spells apply to draconic presence. So you would drop concentration on a concentration spell if you used draconic presence. To put it another way, it is ...

Using a Weapon as an Implement Some classes can use certain magic weapons as implements. If you're able to wield a magic weapon as an implement and use an implement power through it, you add the weapon's enhancement bonus to the power's attack rolls and damage rolls, but you do not use the weapon's proficiency bonus. If you score a critical hit with the ...

60 Feet is Correct I think some of your confusion on this is coming from the notion that the defined range of Touch for Inflict Wounds is somehow a static distance in feet. This is not the case, per the basic rules, it's just what can you touch. So to that end, assume you're somehow a creature with a natural reach greater than 5' and a Spellcasting feature ...

Yes, the Sorcerer can use touch attacks at 60 feet. The scenario works as you explain. To wit: Distant Spell makes the touch spell's range 30 feet which is then doubled by Spell Sniper to 60 feet. Spell Sniper is always in effect, so as soon as a touch spell's range is changed by the meta magic feature, it also gets affected by Spell Sniper. Timing or order ...

Racial powers are in addition to class powers Dragon Breath is a racial power granted to Dragonborn. The relevant rule for Racial Traits appears on page 32 of the fourth edition Player’s Handbook (emphasis mine): Racial Power: Several races give you access to a racial power, which is an extra power you gain at 1st level in addition to the powers your class ...
