The SendingStone review

Acid Arrow is a spell that deals 4d4 acid damage and has a casting time of 1 action. This can be useful for Wizards, who are the only class that can cast it. However, the spell requires Verbal, Somatic, and Material components. Moreover, it is an Instantaneous spell, which means that its effects last only for a moment. The spell can be cast using higher spell slots to increase its power.

Ultimately, whether or not Acid Arrow is a good spell depends on the situation and the user's preferences. It can be helpful for dealing damage to enemies, but it may not be as versatile or useful as other spells. Some players may find it to be a useful tool in combat, while others may prefer spells with more utility or flexibility. Overall, it can be a good option for Wizards looking to add some offensive power to their spell repertoire, but it may not be a primary choice for all players.

Acid Arrow is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Acid Arrow Pathfinder edition. Want to use Acid Arrow in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
