They have this number that’s right next to the spell effect they produce. For instance for a Potion of Antidote, it goes like this:
Cast Spell: Neutralize Poison (5) Single Use
I remember being confused about this before, but now that I see it again, is it safe to assume it means it casts the spell at that caster level? If so, do you still roll a die regardless as if you were casting the spell yourself, or is the die’s result maximized by default when it’s a magic item?
i don’t think NeutralizePoison takes a dc
but generally, iirc they do a dc
dc for items is generally 10+spelllevel
but things like duration are based on casterlevel
No I mean for instance, Cure Light Wounds has you roll 1d8 and it heals by that much + caster level with cap of 5. So a Potion of Cure Light Wounds or a scroll or any other magical item that produces the effect of that spell, would it roll 1d8 too?
yes, using the potion also rolls 1d8 (using the same spell script).
Feels kind of unfair, but thanks for the clarification.
