Nyan's Ball Lightning (5e Spell)
From D&D Wiki
|Casting time:||1 action|
|Components:||V,S,M (A tiny piece of conductive metal)|
This spell, invented by the tabaxi wizard Nyan Kajan, was made in response to a frustration the transmuter had with the end all be all spell of fireball and the comparable lack of use of Lightning Bolt. It emulates fireball in many ways, but trades some of that spell's raw power for lightning damage. As a result, the spell appears as an almost perfectly spherical orb of electrical energy.
A bright streak flashes from your pointing finger to a point you choose within range and then blossoms with a low roar into an explosion of plasma. Each creature in a 20-foot-radius sphere centered on that point must make a Dexterity saving throw. A target takes 7d6 lightning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
The lightning spreads around corners. It ignites flammable objects in the area that aren't being worn or carried.
At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, the damage increases by 1d6 for each slot level above 3rd.
