Magic quests??

Post by Avon » 13 Mar 2009, 18:29

Okay, I know many others have had the same problem,so it's not just me. I'm stuck!! I've drank the mana potion, touched the seed, poured the purification potion in the pond.. then talked to the healer and got the jewel thingy from her.. NOW WHAT?? Yes, I keep touching the mana seed and it keeps saying I need more practice to contain it's power. Ive tried talking to every magic person.. is there one hiding?? Sagatha, the old wizard, the witch in town..w/e her name is.. and the healer chick... I'm going no where! <pout>

I see other ppl using cool magic, so where did I go wrong?? Somebody help me!

oh ya! P.S. I don't have ANY magic skill points or anywhere to add em. Why? Just the "Basic" skill. <sigh>

Is it a bug?

As you do spells, you'll gain experience. Once you have enough experience, you can touch the seed again to gain another level.

Maybe there should be a better feedback about the accumulated spell experience and how much experience is needed to continue the quest.
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

Good idea.. I found that I could create herb plants while naked.. but then it stopped working.. ugh. Maybe I over used it? is there a limit to practicing magic?

Many spells need components to work. Like the herb spawning spells. The NPC that teaches a spell should mention it.

Strange. #G10 is not mentioned to require anything but not working (or I just don't know how to use it).

The range it scans depends on your SP. Try standing on the same tile as someone and casting.

Nope. It doesn't work (no effect animation).

It should say something in your chat box.

Do you have magic level 2? The second level of general magic is required before you can cast '#G10'.

No I haven't. That must be the case.
Edit: Training #T00 is really hard for me. I have 35 Int and have killed hundreds of headlogs but I never have a success.

Try mixing spells; you will not gain any magic experience when using the same spell many times in a row or when using spells that do not use any components. :wink:

How to do that? I have only two spells that I can do (#G00 is totally useless and I don't count it). Any clues?

Wander around and talk to NPCs, even some of the older ones can hand out spells now.

You should be able to pick up a few transformation spells, war spells as well as an astral spell that use up some of the old junk drops while awarding magical xp :) There is also a life spell at level 1, though getting the components is a bit more time-consuming.

I don't think the summon herb spells are awarded by any NPC yet, but the invocations for Mauve, Alizarin, Gamboge and Cobalt are #N01, #N02, #N03, and #N04 respectively, and each spell consumes one herb of the same type to summon. :)
