It is Holy Light that is doing the burning. It is not a flame that is doing the damage but the pure goodness of Holy Light that is searing through the body of unbeliever.

Ok. Spirit fire is still fire. Asyra's Holy light never burns anyone, only Malakai's. I wonder what it will look like if and when we do get a mage trained in both holy and fire. Hopefully it won't replace the Malakai Priest.

Because the Priestess isn't trained in Fire, and the Priest is the alternate version of the Priestess.

Also, fire isn't the only thing that can cause burns. Technically speaking, it's the light coming off of the fire that causes burns. So being able to burn things doesn't imply fire.

Hah! No fair describing heat as electromagnetism! Maybe it's convection! ;)
I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

Convection? As in the spreading of hot air?

But what heats the air, I wonder?

Well now I know. Thanks!

I would have LOVED if nature costed him triple and he were trained in even level 1 fire.  He seems to be against nature "pagans" anyway and it would have added stronger spellbook and playstyle real diversity. I think about it often.

Ohhh someone who's paying triple for Nature would be interesting. Could have been the Necromancer but obviously Holy was a better choice there.

Ive always felt that way.  I like the idea of making the Volatric nature of Arcane be the opposed concept to the actual natural order.

Actually i liked Wizard the most since the beginning (where there was only Core set and 4 mages to choose), but not playing him for a veeery long time because feels to be OP.

I'd probably play the Wizard more if it wasn't actually broken.
