[RPG] How does flaming sphere work?


In my campaign we have a wizard in our team and we are level 5. Our wizard chose the spell Flaming Sphere and we encountered a Goblin horde (30 goblins). He used the spell and moved its 60 feet radius circle area. Is this how it works? And does Flaming Sphere trigger friendly fire?

Best Answer

Flaming Sphere doesn't work like this

As a bonus action, you can move the sphere up to 30 feet. If you ram the sphere into a creature, that creature must make the saving throw against the sphere’s damage, and the sphere stops moving this turn.

You have only 1 bonus action each turn, so you can move it up to 30 feet per turn. You can ram it into 1 creature too.

Any creature that ends its turn within 5 feet of the sphere must make a Dexterity saving throw.

You can move it past hundreds of creatures, but they are unaffected, unless you ram it into one of them. From the others only those who are stupid enough not to move away and end their turn next to it have to save.
If your allies do this, they are burnt too.
