Finally!
A magic user in first place :D

A had to do a lot of dying and restarting in the early levels.
For a long time I could not even get in the top 10 with magic.

Whoa that is impressive :) That is much better than I've managed to get (level 25 or something like that). And with magic! I've always turned to a mainly focused strength build to get deep down. And to have it all end by a miscast spell :lol:

Feel free to share any experiences or feedback. Turning-points (specific items, spells, etc.), bugs, wierd or out-of-place stuff ;)

Killed by Victory! ha!

I added Goddess Of Healing and Constitution for some survivable and it did the trick :)


There are some things that I think will need rebalancing and others that maybe exploits.

Gem blast + Elder Magic
This makes the speel cost 0
Lots of free damage, you are still very dangerous even with 0 mana.
Most of your fire and other spells feel worthless once you have it.
Just nuts.


Magic Staff + Sward to Ploughshre
Turn any amount of mana into food, I have not tested this with warlock spells yet.
Also using high magic you can get rainfall via Archmagic.
As High magic gives both food and water I could drop both Druid Magic and Water Magic. High magic is powerful.

I think the most overpowered has got to be Time Magic.
Teleport and dimensional swap are already really powerful
Etheralness is just broken! And adding it to the same magic school...
things like portal and featherfall can not compete.
Talking about portal, if you have both Earth Magic and Air Magic (or Elemental Mastery) then you would never use portal.
There is an air spell that also removes walls (and other things) that costs less mana, I think it was called disintegrate?

White Magic needs some help.
I really think that White Magic should have healing spells that do not need crystals evey time. Black magic can heal using drain line without crystals, Black magic was much better for healing. The whole White Magic school feels almost useless. I also think that White healing magic should not be able to fail, or at least, not hurt you. You only use them when your low life and when they can kill you it makes them less useful then healing herbs.
What if your hurt and have nothing else to heal with...
it's a risk to play on without healing... but it's also a risk to heal...
So sometimes I don't heal and play on and then I end up thinking "Why did I pick White Magic?".


Love the game Zefz!
I'v had lost of fun with it :)

Awesome to hear you enjoyed it!
Killed by Victory! ha!
Did not expect someone to win the game so suddenly :) I've fixed it now.
Gem blast + Elder Magic
This makes the speel cost 0
This is a bug. Gem Blast is not supposed to only cost 1 mana!
Magic Staff + Sward to Ploughshre
Ah yes, you're not supposed to be able to use Sword to Ploughshare on conjured items, that would be an exploit for free food
White Magic needs some help.

These are some very good points. I mainly tried to make the game faithful to the original, but White Magic is supposed to be the best magic type for healing :) Problem with not requiring Mana Crystal is the exploit of using Dark Magic from Black Magic together with healing to gain infinite recovery of mana and life!

Victorious,
Killed 402 monsters

Ha!
I wonder how far someone could get without killing any...?
As I have been knowingly exploiting the game please delete my highscore when you have time. God of Magic, MagicTest01 and All Magic.

Killer was also me but I was not cheating with that one.

Whats Dark Magic?
I could not find it in the Black Magic school or warlock school.

Sorry, it was a spell used to be in Black Magic (turned life into mana). But I figured out it would be too easy to exploit so removed it.

So maybe you're right in allowing White Magic to have a healing spell that doesn't require a mana crystal would make it worthwhile to pick!
