epic attack spell
« on: October 28, 2017, 04:38:11 PM »
Hi,

Can someone explain elemental wand to me? Why does it say only non-epic attack spells? Is there an epic attack spell? Are they planning for some in the future?

Thanks

while there are no epic attack spells as yet, it is likely future proofing to keep from allowing multiple casts of something that should only be allowed once per game.  note there are epic incantations which are not allowed on the mage wand or thoughtspores.

Epic by definition is a spell that you can only have a single copy of in your spellbook. These are very powerful spells. To be able to cast them multiple times would break the game and/or the intention they were designed for. The first way to do this would be to place them on an object that allows multiple copies of a spell in your spellbook. This breaking of the order of normal spell casting is fine for non epic spells, however with Epic spells, then this could easy lead to a run away winner situation.
