Range long (400 ft. + 40 ft./level)
Area 20-foot-radius spread
Saving Throw Reflex half; Spell Resistance yes
This spell functions as fireball except you can cause the bead of fire to originate from anywhere you can see within range.
You can choose a number of squares within the area up to your Intelligence bonus (for magi, occultists, or wizards) or Charisma bonus (for bloodragers or sorcerers) to be struck by weaker flames; the controlled fireball deals minimum damage in those squares.
Attempts to identify controlled fireball with a skill check incorrectly identify it as fireball (see the ruse descriptor).
