    Default Magic and sneak attack

    Just curious...

    When sneak attacking and using damage spells do I still get the extra damage from doing a sneak attack?

    Sneak attack does not apply to spells.

    Doesnt exist in DDO.

    There are feats in PnP source where if a magical attack requires an attack roll on a single target, sneak attack damage applies as it would otherwise.

    An arcane trickter with double wand wielding and a couple scorching ray wands can land some pretty crazy single target damage.
    Historically: If every melee nerf after each melee class revamp was reverted back to its pre-nerf version, which melee build(s) are OP in the current meta?

    There's actually a 3rd edition prestige class that can do this, but only with ray spells, it's called Arcane Trickster. And it might make an interesting universal tree, but it might be awkward to make it work.
