    It’s something even in the original 1E where things were mentioned to be done in different ways. It’s a hidden thing where if you were coming from B/X you would understand the basic stuff but an experienced player would know to read more into it for something that is more complex. It’s like trying to read a scroll for a lightning bolt but you only see it as a burning hands spell.

    Anyways, every group I have ever played D&D with, rolled separately for each Magic Missile cast. If you want to simplify it, then go ahead and do so.

    Super simple, cast your level of magic missile, throw the number of d4s in a tub each one gets its own +1 modifier. Allocate which missiles hit which enemy.

    It is simple each time the spell is cast it creates a set number of missiles which deal identical damage.So when you cast you roll the 1d4+1 and that is how much each missile does… assuming a single target the total damage is what you rolled times the number of missiles…
