    Default Where does magic come from?

    That is my question. What is the source of magic in EQ2, and how is it summoned?

    My take is there is no actual classical "magic" in eq. You need to look at it more as a person who spends his life learning about, for example, fire and ice. He studies the compounds, studies the properties, studies the behaviors. After years and years of research he begins to learn how to manipulate these elements. Eventually he becomes a master of how to produce and command the elements at will and in this case, a wizard is born.

    My opinion is that all classes are masters of what they know, and through experience and time we get devastating manipulations such as Ice Novas.

    Imagine how pissed off many of those wizards were when they realized that it looked no different than that first snowball they threw at a crab.

    I'm not sure of the origin itself, but Druzzil Ro is the goddess of magic, and lives on the demi-plane of magic. She also happens to be the one that split time into the separate EQ1 and EQ2 timelines when the deities were defeated in EQ1. You can learn about this through Zebuxoruk at the top of the Shin Village tower, once you do the quest lines there.

    Magic "now" is different than magic "then" in EQ2.

    In EQ1, a lot of the magic came from the gods. When they gods left/withdrew, a LOT of magics shut down completely. The Ashen Order is responsible for tapping into the power housed within each of us and it was through them that Combat Arts were invented that provided us a new source while the gods were gone.

    There was an NPC in Starcrest commons near the fountain thing that talked about this.

    I think the OP was looking for for something like "Dragons are the source of Magic", or "Magic in EQ2 is like the force, its surrounds us and Binds us"... or "Elves make magic, kill all the elves and magic fades away!"...

    I know it doesn't help much, but I do remember reading in game once about the source of magic in norrath.

    The force is the closest description

    Mana - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Although it is called power in Eq2 its the same.

    As for magic disappearing when the gods left I attribute that to peoples reliance on them tapping into their gods seemingly endless mana pools rather then their own, so when the gods left it gave off the illusion that magic had disappeared.

    It took the Ashen order learning to tap into their own power to realise it wasn't really gone.
