Reflection and multi-bounce

If your character has reflection, the missile can bounce of you again. (Magic resistance is not enough.) This way, you could hit monsters more than twice with a single casting. --Tjr 16:12, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

Vampire lord is immune?

Their monster magic resistance is only 50, and I'm sure they don't have magic resistance, yet my magic missile spell always causes the "sparkle" animation if I zap a vampire lord, and the stethoscope shows I'm not doing any damage to him. What's up with that? Even sourcediving didn't give me an explanation so far... --Bluescreenofdeath (talk) 11:03, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

Rounded up or down?

The damage (xplev/2+1)d6 has xplev/2 rounded up or down? For example, at level 7, would my spell be doing 4d6 or 5d6?
