      Man this spell is bad on so many levels its astonishing. First off, initial 1d12 damage pales in comparison with chromatic orb's 2d8+1d4 aoe, but it gets good scaling, right? - second level is 2x damage of the first, comparing to 1.5x of chromatic orb - well yes, but the damage on subsequential turns is always (yes, even upcasted as 2nd level spell) 1d12, which is again, will lose to almost any other option, and if you dont activate witch bolt's arc the spell is gone just like that. I can agree with abysmal scaling, but arc activation should be bonus action, just like heat metal.

        It does good damage on every tick when paired with create water spell, I like to take it for a warlock which can't pump 18-20 charisma for eldritch blast. Better dmg on average and 100 hit chance if you create a link
