Wild magic 5e Surge Table
Let us get into one of the most searched tables in Dungeons and dragons. It is the Wild Magic 5e Surge Table. The issue with most wild magic tables online is that they alter the balance of the sorcerer subclass – most people don’t seem to realize that the wild surge is supposed to be, on average, a risky but net positive feature for the subclass, combined with tides of chaos. At the same time, some of the online lists are either incredibly negative or overpoweringly positive. The RAW Wild magic table 5e, splitting the effects into categories. (Classes being antagonistic, favourable, neutral, flavour, negative with possible positive or negative side-effect depending on the situation, the effect depends entirely on the situation, summons a creature).
What is the best way to roll wild magic?
Suppose the player uses the token, they get an advantage on a roll, and the token goes to you. The next time they cast a 1st level spell or higher, you can use the token to force an automatic wild magic roll (as though they rolled a one on the d20). You then give the token back to them, and the cycle continues.
What does “centred on yourself” mean in the 5e Wild Magic Surge table in D&D ?
It means the wild mage is at the centre of the effect. If it targets one creature, then the wild mage is the target. If it’s an area of effect, the wild mage is in the centre and has no control over the placement of the area covered.
When it triggers a fireball in 5e dnd, the wild mage is the centre of the radius. Since it is a wild surge, they can’t metamagic “careful spell” it to avoid damage.
Wild Magic Sorcerer 5e
Your innate magic emanates from the wild forces of chaos that carry the order of creation. You might have endured susceptibility to some form of raw magic, conceivably through a planar portal leading to Limbo, the Elemental Planes, or the mystical Far Realm. Perhaps you were blessed by a compelling fey creature or marked by a demon. Or your magic might be a fluke of your birth, with no apparent cause or reason. Nevertheless, it came to be, this chaotic magic churns within you, anticipating any outlet.

Wild Magic Surge
Starting when you choose this origin at 1st level, your spellcasting may unleash surges of untamed magic. Immediately after you cast a 1st level or higher sorcerer spell, the DM may have you roll a d20. If you roll a 1, roll on the Wild Magic Surge table to create a random magical effect.
Tides of Chaos
Starting at 1st level, you may manipulate the forces of chance and chaos to gain an advantage on one attack roll, ability check, or saving throw. Once you do that, you need to finish a long rest before using this feature again.
Any time before you recover the use of this characteristic, the DM may have you roll on the Wild Magic Surge table immediately after you cast a sorcerer spell of 1st level or higher. You then retrieve the use of the feature.
Starting at the 6th level, you may twist fate using your wild magic 5e. When another creature you can see makes an attack roll, an ability check, or a saving throw, you may use your reaction and spend two sorcery points to roll 1d4 and apply the number rolled as a bonus or penalty (your choice) to the creature’s roll. You can do so after the creature rolls but before any effects of the roll occur.
At the 14th level, you gain a modicum of control over the surges of your wild magic. Whenever you roll on the Wild Magic Surge table, you can roll twice and use either number.
Beginning at the 18th level, the harmful energy of your spells intensifies. When you roll damage for a spell and roll the highest number possible on any dice, please choose one of those dice, roll it again and add that roll to the damage. You can use the feature only once per turn.

How does 5e concentration interact with spells cast via the dnd Wild Magic Surge table?
There’s no interaction there. The Wild Magic Surge specifies that if it creates a concentration spell, the sorcerer does not have to maintain concentration on it (and the corollary to that is that the sorcerer cannot stop the spell either). The Surge spell lasts for its entire maximum duration. So any concentration spell that the sorcerer may have to go is not affected (unless the Surge spell damages the sorcerer and causes him to lose concentration). The Wild Magic 5e is a class feature and improves their output. These seem weak but a little more flavorful. Hope the Wild Magic 5e Surge table gets you what you need for rolling the dice.
