Recently I asked the titular question on Twitter and Facebook. Everyone must be too busy playing RPGs to reply as I have only received three responses and one of them was in regards to rocket propelled grenades; I guess I should have been more specific.
Yep, that’s right, the wizards’ reliable, never-missing friend is back! Of course, Magic Missile never went away, but it had been seriously nerfed in the Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition rules. I you find this too good to be true, feel free to check the last article in the July issue of Dragon Magazine or the errata PDF for yourself.
