Description: The caster creates a shimmering projectile of magical force that unerringly slams into a single selected target. After level 1, the spell creates 1 additional missile every two caster levels, to a maximum of 5 missiles at level 9. Magic missiles do 1d4+1 points of damage each.
magic missile is the most commonly used spell by PC and NPCs alike due to the automatic hit and the fact that there is almost no enemy with magical resistance.
this spell is directly countered by the sheild spell
