Metamagic Twinned Spell.webp

Metamagic: Twinned Spell is a toggleable passive feature used by Sorcerer. This ability allows Sorcerers to target two creatures with certain Spells.


Spells that only target 1 creature can target an additional creature.

Costs 1 Sorcery Point per Spell Slot level used. Cantrips also cost 1 Sorcery Point.

For spells that don't shoot a projectile, the targets need to be close enough together.

How to learn



  • When twin casting a spell, two separate targets must be chosen. The same creature cannot be targeted twice by the same twinned spell.
  • Spells that are able to target multiple creatures cannot be used with Twinned Spell, even if those spells are only used to target one creature. This includes spells such as Magic Missile Magic Missile and Eldritch Blast Eldritch Blast (after 5th level).
  • A spell that targets the caster themselves cannot be twinned, even if it only affects the caster.
  • Spells that affect an area cannot be twinned. This includes spells like Ice Knife Ice Knife which are single target but with an additional area of effect. The only exceptions are Hail of Thorns Hail of Thorns and Lightning Arrow Lightning Arrow.
  • Summoning spells cannot be twinned.
  • Since Patch 6, Chain Lightning Chain Lightning cannot be twinned. However, this restriction does not apply to the version of Chain Lightning granted by Markoheshkir.
