Cast Spells Through Minion?
« on: July 19, 2019, 03:32:51 PM »
Is there a spell which let's me cast spells and see and interact remotely or through my minion?  I'd like to hang out safe in my den while I adventure and battle remotely by myself or through my minion.

Dominate an Average Elf and/or Spectral Hand.
Charm works with line of sight.

Apparently this works.

I thought there was a lower level alternative though

3.5 and/or PF?

Scrying lets some spells work through it. Was there some greater scrying variant that allowed more spells through? I recall there's plenty of opinions in both if your minion is your familiar, but can't remember any speciffic ones off the top of my head.

In PF, Witch's scar hex can be used to ignore range on some things. In third party PF, DSP's psionic classes with collectives can do this this at higher levels

Greater Scrying is just a few detect spells, nothing exciting.

IIRC, there is also Power by Proxy metapsionic feat in either Untapped Potential or Hyperconcious. Believe that is cast through ally if they are mindlink'd or similar.

Magic Jar isn't entirely safe, but it can be safer than going in person.

Your den would need to be rather close to your minion, though.
