PRODUCE FLAME CANTRIP 1ATTACK CANTRIP EVOCATION FIRE
Traditions arcane, primal
Cast [two‑actions] somatic, verbal
Range 30 feet; Targets 1 creature
A small ball of flame appears in the palm of your hand, and you lash out with it either in melee or at range. Make a spell attack roll against your target’s AC. This is normally a ranged attack, but you can also make a melee attack against a creature in your unarmed reach. On a success, you deal 1d4 fire damage plus your spellcasting ability modifier. On a critical success, the target takes double damage and 1d4 persistent fire damage
I have a pretty simple question here (I hope!) It takes two actions to cast Produce Flame. Does that mean an additional, third action is required to actually toss the ball of flame, or is the spell attack roll itself included as part of the spell cast?
