@JeremyECrawford Question about attack action. Does a ranged spell or touch spell attack count as an attack? So as an eldritch knight could I cast Firebolt as my attack action twice if I'm level five?

In combat, casting a spell uses the Cast a Spell action. That action might include a spell attack, as in the spell fire bolt, yet it remains the Cast a Spell action, not the Attack action. #DnD https://t.co/XzdJPSVtcj

One thought on “Does a ranged spell or touch spell attack count as an attack?”
But since you’re level 5, your firebolt does 2 dice of damage with just one action.
