Sparkle! Your puzzle solver *SPOILER*

Try as I might, there were some chasms I just couldn’t cross with levitate/fly/misty-step; to get the loot on the other side. E.g. the room beside the dragon statue in the Magic Tower library. All of these had a pushable pillar on the other side though, so at least I’d be able to get back...


Then I figured out casting ‘Sparkle’ on a pushable pillar will cause the pillar to fall over! Now all those areas are accessible, and the loot is mine.

Are you joking? I wonder whether this is intended or not? Rather strange, if so, it's certainly not mentioned in its spell description.

Ditto, tried to replicate and it didn't allow me to target them either.

I haven't tried pillars, but Sparkle will remove debris from windows in the Necro tower (as will Fire Bolt or even normal arrows).  I think I did manage to use Fire Bolt on something else... just can't recall if it was a pillar or not.

Given the potential bug with Sparkle being cast if you Ready a Cantrip Attack, it seems pretty obvious that they based the spell off of their magic missile implementation.  So if it acts like MM, I wouldn't be surprised.

Use the cantrip Fire Bolt.  Works in V1, official release.

(Spoiler if you have not been to Lave Forest zone)

My Wizard is knocking down all the trees in the Lava Forest with a firebolt cantrip, to allow easy crossing.  And blowing up the traps as well, after I got tired of sending my Paladin equipped with a Poison Resist cloak into a half dozen of them to set them off.  I figured since arrows couldn't target the poison pods, that nothing ranged would, and I was absolutely wrong.

I've definitely learned we can get creative with Wizard evocation spells for terrain access.
