Delayed blast fireball, or delayed blast fire ball was an evocation spell that was like fireball but could be given a timed detonation.[6][3][2][7]


Other than being similar to fireball, the damage of the spell was increased and the spell would detonate with a timed trigger.[6][3][2] Later versions of the spell created a fiery "bead" that could be thrown and explode, sometimes in the thrower's hand.[2][7]

The post-Second Sundering version of the spell could be made even more powerful if cast by a user with more skill.[7]


Only verbal and somatic components were needed for the casting.[6][3][2]
