Did you ever wonder about how a Sorceress calls forth her Lightning Bolts, or how a Town Portal really works? We have gone through a massive amount of lore concerning Magic, spells, casting, planes, schools of magic and a lot of other things. While there really has been no place where you could get this info in a nice and summarised form before, we sincerely hope that you will enjoy reading about all the things that are magical in Sanctuary. We present:
- The Massive Magic Mayhem Guide!
There are also a few related pages made or updated for the Magic article, and several articles that will soon be available, that gives a more detailed picture of different types of magic. The difference between Holy magic and Demonic magic, or even Primal and Elemental can still be explained even further, and such a natural thing as mana still needs to be added. The overwhelming majority of information gathered came from the Diablo I Manual, the Diablo II Manual and the Diablo II: Lord of Destruction Manual, which is still quite accurate, besides a few details and the counting of years. We also updated sections in the manuals with navigational links, so if you ever missed getting a manual with your game, check them out as well. Below are the magic-related articles that also have had different recent updates:
