As an action, a glob of acid appears in your hand. You can engulf your hand as you touch a creature or hurl the glob.
If you engulf your hand, make a melee spell attack against a creature you touch. If you hurl the glob, make a ranged spell attack against a creature within 9 meters.
On a hit, the target takes 1d6 acid damage immediately and additional acid damage equal to half the amount of acid damage dealt at the end of its next turn.
If you miss by 4 or less, the target takes half as much damage immediately and half as much damage at the end of its next turn.
If the target dies from the initial damage, the acid can splash to another target within 1.5 meters of the original target, dealing the additional damage to it.
After attacking with the glob, the spell ends.
