I wanted to get y'alls feedback on this spellcasting idea. The Boreal Wind
spell, as we all know, is a top-tier multi-threat attack spell for nearly all the primary arcane and divine spellcasters. One of the more intriguing aspects of this multi-round direction-controllable spell is this quote:
" ... The wind can change direction if you actively direct it (a move action for you); otherwise, it merely blows in the same direction
So if I chose to use my Standard Action as another Move Action in the same round to change direction 5 degrees to the left, could I instead swing it around in the opposite direction (to the right) to, in essence, affect everything around me within a 360 degree AoE? I couldn't find any rules that mandated that I had to adjust a spell's moveable direction in the quickest and shortest path possible.
In addition, let's say I downed 12 Bloodspike Tempos [MoE p. 140] prior to the combat. If I took those extra 12 Move Action turns all on the first turn that I cast the spell, could I affect the same damaged victim multiple times with the same Boreal Wind? Assuming the victim was in the initial blast, then was out of it (when the Boreal Wind changed directions), then was back in it again (when a Bloodspike Tempo Move Action moved the Boreal Wind's gust back in the victim's direction. Assuming in my prior paragraph that I have no restrictions with longer-route swivelling, I can just use Move Actions to swiftly move across the battlefield, swivelling the Boreal Wind in circles or hemisphere sweeps ... and destroying everything that gets multiple touches by the returning/revolving Boreal blasts. Even stuff that's possibly out of my field of vision. Of course, caution must be taken to ensure allies won't get caught in this venture.
In essence, I'm trying to see if I can nova-combo Boreal Wind along with a huge expenditure of Bloodspike Tempos to royally annihilate and blow-back everything on a huge battlefield all within the first turn of my wizard's combat. To note, Boreal Wind is one of the very few attack spells with Long Range (400 ft. + 40 ft./level). And its 20'x20'xLong Range AoE is a really compelling strategic-level battlefield spell. Especially when direction changes point up into the skies to affect flyers.
Anyhow, if this has any legality issues, please kindly holler back.
