With weapon in hand, you finish the last of the arcane gestures and words that activate the power of the spell. As you cast the spell, you hurl a single slashing weapon at your foes. The blade, carried along both by your might and your magical prowess, slashes at your foes while whirling forward.
You hurl a weapon held at the time of
casting, and it magically attacks all
enemies along a line to the extent of the
spell’s range. You make a normal melee
attack, just as if you were attacking
with the weapon in melee, against each
foe in the weapon’s path, but you can
choose to substitute your Intelligence
modifier or your Charisma modifier
(as appropriate for your spellcasting
class) for your Strength modifier on the
weapon’s attack rolls and damage rolls.
Even if your base attack bonus would
normally give you multiple attacks,
a whirling blade gets only one attack
(at your best attack bonus) against
each target. The weapon deals damage
just as if you had swung it in melee,
including any bonuses you might have
from ability scores or feats.
No matter how many targets your weapon hits or misses, it instantly and unerringly returns to your hand after attempting the last of its attacks.
Focus: A slashing melee weapon that you hurl.
