Life Magic Spells

Life spells are beneficial to the caster and its army, and concentrate on blessing, healing, protecting, and therefore strengthening the caster’s army. Many of Life's spells focus on neutralising or combating Death Magic, further narrowing their capabilities in their magic school.

Interesting spell combinations arise through martyr and regeneration, and this little circle is very effective at preserving your creature, provided it does not get barraged. Bless and Exorcism are useful early game spells which again allow the Life creatures to exercise their full potential, and protect them for any cursing spells that Life or Order may cast.

The abundance of "X Ward" spells the Life school possesses makes these spells a sound start to any combat, instantly reducing the enemies effectiveness. Other good initial spells include Prayer, Mass Fervor and Mass Bless.

On the whole, Life's spells require the player to use them very strategically, moreso than any other class. Song of Peace is a rare cursing spell, but should be cast by a secondary priest, as the primary priest has more spells at his/her disposal of greater effect. Divine Intervention can be used to give the hero a second chance, likewise with Guardian Angel, which can also be used on creatures. Sanctuary is an excellent spell in that it allows you to re-arrange your units in a desired formation, almost working like Mass Teleport, except it may take more turns, giving time for your opponent to cast beneficial spells on his/her own units.

Less useful spells include Bind Wounds, Holy Word/Shout (not against Death), the various Ward (except against the appropriate alignment), and Spiritual Armor (not in mass form).

The Life Magic School is among the most powerful when used correctly. This means beginning a combat with Mass Fervor or "X Ward", strengthening the units with Prayer, and resisting other spells and damage with Mass Healing, Sanctuary, Guardian Angel, and Song of Peace.
