Metamagic is a Sorcerer Class Feature that allows the user to add additional effects to magic spells in exchange for Sorcery Points.

When a metamagic passive is toggled on, affected spells will get a white glow and the Sorcery Points will be added to the spell cost.

Two metamagic types are chosen at level 2, with one additional metamagic chosen at levels 3 and 10.

Sorcery Points are regained after a Long Rest.
