Jetah said in Requisite for casting magic:
why should magic be limited to those using sticks?
(paladins use a sword/mace and shield and still cast spells)
I didn't say it should be restricted to people using staves only, not sure where you got that from...
I am asking because some spells on the wiki say you can only cast while unarmed or with 1handed weapon.
This game has no classes so we can't say there are paladins or wizards in the normal sense, this isn't d&d.... No restriction on what you want to make.
If you want to make a "paladin" style class it's possible, most of the buffs can be cast while you swing your sword and some heals it looks like.... But if you want to use a two handed sword you will have less spells.. ..
@Prometheus can maybe weight in and tell us how spellcasting is restricted, I think it makes sense that as you start you can't just toss huge aoe fireballs while running around with a two handed sword and heavy armor (if you want to do this however maybe talents are required in my opinion.... Training to cast while being so heavily armored)
Depends I guess on how fractured views spellcasting, is it just a concentrated effort of will and mana.... Or does spell casting involve hand gestures, spoken words or a foci.
We already see a spell that will silence... So some spells can be disabled with this enchant.
We need the devs to weight in on the mechanics of spellcasting for the actual game and the lore.
