    1) How does channeling scorching ray work? Do you get all 3 rays in the attack? Or just one of them?

    2) Why not allow touch spells to be channeled through ranged weapons? I don't think anything will break by allowing a duskblade to channel his shocking grasp through an arrow. Maybe as a feat?
    If my text is blue, I'm being sarcastic.But you already knew that, right?

    Hmm. Probably just the one... maybe it'd be simpler to remove the spell.

    Yeah, point.
