"So I will bombard you with options that total more than 120 spell points and leave you to distill it down to fit your vision."

Mission accompolished! I am amazed, never thought of stacking wardstones (Cursing Wardlock just popped in my mind but i guess it lacks serious curses :D) - and i guess playing one hydra is really naiv...

@Shad0w: right now i do not own the FvW Exp. so i am not really able to get into the earth-split wizard (although you seem to have a name on the forum and i expect the earth-split to be a reasonable extend to my list...which is simply based on fewer options)

But as both of you are reading this, what are your thoughts on Whirling spirit(s?) to protect conjurations with gasclouds  around (push is considered a move action and will also trigger surpression Orb... but guesses are that the upkeep trait brings too much cost withit)

Thanks to Wiz-Pig

The problem came up with the Priest and his ability since he has no "chance" on setting things on fire :D But regarding the D12 it makes sense and i totally frogot about it!

I am impressed how fast the rules cleared up  :P

Okay thanks for your input in the first place! I am feeling somehwhat reliefed because i thought there must be a clearification inside the rules.

Healing about 1 Dice more is not very viable for hawkeye so i guess this situation does not come off that often.

Any help regarding burn? Does the Flame+X trait has any effect on burn condition markers?

General Questions / Hawkeye + Healing Light?
« on: October 01, 2013, 08:38:37 AM »
Hey folks,

so i stumbled across some questions - does hawkeye adds +1 dice to the asyran Clerics healing light since it is a ranged "attack"? Somehow i do not see healing as an attack more as an ability (it is even marked in gold, not in silver, on the card) and hawkeye as an enchantments that targets stereotypical archers.... on the other hand healing Light HAS a ranged ATTACK icon

Creatures with the Flame+X trait do not suffer any extra damage from burn conditions? Even if the burn condition deals flame damage?

I guess there are simple answers to those questions, please get my facts straight :D

If Arcane Wonders won't be at the Spiel but anyone else is - please message me i'd love to playout a match!

Damn Arcane Wonders/Mage Wars would be nearly my only reason to go there :D

Wow that was fast! I was already wondering why other players included poison gas cloud because i only looked at the straight forward 2 points of damage, which is not so impressiv....

what about spiked pits? They seem pretty overpriced but stuck is neat!

Okay i will remove elemental wand.... Any way to protect the wizard's tower?

Spellbook Design and Construction / Wizard Control (First Spellbook)
« on: September 30, 2013, 03:20:42 PM »
Hey folks,

So i was bored and made a Control Wizard Spellbook focused around Wizard's Tower, Mana Siphon, Suppression Orb and Mordok's Obelisk.

For the Tower i ioncluded a toolbox of Flameblast, Fireball, Jetsteam and Lightning Bolt

Now i added more mana draining things like Suppresion Cloak, Staff of the Arcanum, Drain Power (2x), Mana Leech (2x), Enchanters Wardstone (2x) and Essence Drain

As removal i got Steal Enchantment, Seeking Dispel (3x), Dissovle (2X) and Dispel (2x). Bansih (2x) should work out against real bad issues and marker-creatures like Pet/Blood Reaper/Holy Avenger...

Regarding battle and mindtricks i added Decoy (2x), Jinx (2x), Nullify (3x), Teleport (2x), Teleport trap , Block (2x) and Enchantment Transfusion (2x) as well as Dispel Wand (2x)

To gain more mana advantage i grabbed for Mana Crystal (2x) and Arcane Ring and for protection i choose Elemental Cloak

To finish my opponent who might be starving for mana i use Darkfenne Hydra and Gorgon Archer, as well as Screech Harpy (2x) to deal with flyers

My question is: Are Elemetal Wands still useful in Wizard Tower decks? Is Huginn better than Dispel Wand?

I just designed this Spellbook and never played it, i know it has a lack of healing and mana drain deals no visible damage on the board but i imagine playing the named cards right will just frustrate the opponent and reduce each effecient move he did by paying lots and lots of mana to actually DO stuff. Moreover i plan on ruining calculated mana plans per turn. However I never played against the Forcemaster so i guess he might be a problem by being more "solo" than i am

It has to focus on the enemy mage whilst maintaining the enchantments and conjurations.

Now finally due to my lack of experiance - How viable is such kind of Deck (lack of aggro and healing)? What would you add/sort out?

This problem pushed me to creating my own spellbook and decide which of the mages i choose - so somehow the small issue ade me go deeper into the game :D

Player Feedback and Suggestions / Base Set + Conquest of Kumanjaro
« on: September 29, 2013, 07:11:48 PM »
Hey Folks,

so after a few games of the base set i wanted to expand my cardpool and bought Conquest of Kumanjaro - somehow i regret my descision because the suggested spellbooks couldn't be build without the Forcemaster VS Warlord set :/

Besides this i got what i wanted, now i am able to differ the spellbooks of priest/BM, healing charm is fantastic, knight-smashing-trolls, spiked pits and angels - just purely awesome!

This is a small issue, i am totally hooked to the game and wanted to buy the other addons even before knowing that i would be needing them but so i feel a bit forced to do it because otherwise i cannot get my full expierience out of CoK.

Whatever, just me whining a bit :D

I am impressed and amused by the answers! As for the Beastmaster I agree (the setting is not an post industrial age where humans have the choice of nutritions and are even forced to eat meat) but the Priestess - just because she heals the body does not mean she has to show her own :D

Nevertheless, thanks for your post :) - now i read stuff about the history of etheria, nice!

Off topic / Fun Questions
« on: September 06, 2013, 03:30:52 PM »
So i got Mage Wars and after reading all the stuff and having a real look at the cards i totally fell in love with the game. Being the person i am some courious questions and thoughts came across my neoliberal-european mind and thus i present them more for fun, but feel free to discuss seriously (If there are hints in the lore :D) or add more ones!

Otherwise delete it or move to offtopic....

1. Is the Beastmaster vegetarian/vegan?

2. Most clerical women don't dress like the priestess! Maybe the temple of Asyra will be a good spot of bringing faith to an atheist like me

3. Why the heck is every mage so great about fighting to death in the arena?! (I saw this discussed in this forum and i stumbled across this moral question too)

4. Even if those battles took place the Warlord/Warlock somehow does not seem to be the guy for fair rules...civil rights, prevention of death to millions of farmers, villagers, elves and dwarves.

As Essen is mentioned - i am looking for players near Essen and furthermore international matches at the Spiel


Hallo Forum, wenn hier wer aus dem Ruhrgebiet kommt und einem Novizen den Weg zum weltenverschlingendem Zauberer ermöglichen mag bitte melden :D

Bought MW yesterday, registered last week and read nearly everything inside this forum - i need to play n slay. (Will have my first apperiance Match this evening)

I live in Essen and am really excited to have a challenge at the Spiel soon! Hopefully i will get some expansion packs as well (Is the Druid VS Necro avaiable at the Spiel?)

Greetings to the Forumspeople!
