[RPG] Can you cast the Produce Flame cantrip underwater


Can you cast the produce flame cantrip underwater?

All I could find on this subject was on p. 198 of the Player's Handbook: "Creatures and objects that are fully immersed in water have resistance to fire damage."

Best Answer

Produce Flame does what it says it does — it sits in your hand and produces light, or you can throw it to do damage, ending the spell.

Being underwater does what it says — if the creature you throw the flame at is fully immersed, they have resistance to the damage.

The flame is magic — it isn't something reacting with oxygen.
