The question: True Polymorph + True Seeing = True Death?
This question was originally closed as a duplicate of this question, asking if using true polymorph to create consumable spell components worked at all, but the question was later clarified to ask:
Tangentially mentioned in that thread, someone assumes that a "consumed" spell component is the same as "destroying" an item and reducing it to zero HP, but I can't find anything RAW that supports that sentiment- and WotC is known for their explicit and intentional differentiation of terms.
So for clarity, the question is what happens to a consumed spell component?
So I closed it as a duplicate of this question, What does it mean for a spell component to be consumed?, which asks:
When the body of spell's description explicitly says a component is 'consumed' or it is implied by the material components description, what exactly happens to that component?
These seem to be exactly the same question. But the question was reopened by another user, so I'm asking here on meta since we've been through two close-reopen cycles at this point.
Is this question a duplicate?
