Wild Magic passive feature.webp

Wild Magic is a passive feature that triggers a random magical effect sometimes when you cast a Level 1 or higher Spell. To trigger the effect, a 20 needs to be rolled on a D20.png d20 (i.e., 5% chance).


Unruly magic sparks and fizzes through your veins. Each time you cast a spell of Level 1 or higher, your magic might surge and trigger a random magic effect.
