A small globe of magical energy that follows a spellcaster. It cannot operate on its own, yet it will provide fire support, assaulting whatever its conjurer casts at with magical missiles that never miss.

“I'm your only friend
I'm not your only friend
But I'm a little glowing friend
But really I'm not actually your friend
But I am”
-They Might Be Giants, “Birdhouse in Your Soul”. 1989.

Useful Info

Battlespheres are globes of energy which can be created by casting the level 5 spell Iskenderun's Battlesphere. They don't have any melee attacks, but each time you cast a conjuration at a monster, they will shoot a barrage of energy at the same target, dealing irresistible damage.

Friendly beams can pass through them.
