Hello there magic practitioners of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook. We’re gonna way through the cantrips are starting off with acid splash 5e might as well go alphabetical right! So acid splash pretty cool, not the nest in most cases but in some cases it’s pretty cool, all right!
It is usable by the wizard and the sorcerer spell lists. So if you’re a magic initiate you can grab it too, bards can grab it too, arcane tricksters are those first couple levels could probably NAB it as well. It is found in the players handbook so everyone should be able to look this one up if they need to.

As far as alternative uses are concerned acid splash struggle with this a little bit. Reason being that word creatures it’s really a pain in my neck. But i came up with the couple, so if you accidentally kill someone or murder them or whetever hopefully it’s just an accident but i don’t know whatever.
