While it would be amazing to have any one of the five Fields of Magic’s cool abilities, there’s something about Combat Magic that is so appealing. Maybe it’s the thought of threateningly waving a Conjurer in your enemies' faces and having them cower in terror. Or perhaps it’s because of all the powerful spells. How great would it be to generate fireballs and ice balls at will? Or blast enemies across the room? Let’s break down some of the other reasons why it would be so awesome to be a Combat Magic wizard.
They’re Not Afraid of Danger
There’s a reason why people in Combat Magic make the best Magical Court members. If your job is to protect an entire kingdom, you need to not be fazed by fear. Magical Court members are up against all kinds of trouble, like Oglaturantas, Zeels, and even those pesky Zamps. Although some Combat Magic wizards falsely believe they’re invincible, they never run at the sign of trouble. Take Chuck, for instance. He willingly boards an old bus driven by a Hyna who badly needs deodorant and a toenail clipper. If you’re not instantly grossed out by this scenario, you may be a Combat Magic wizard!
They Use the Best Spells
Ah, yes. The reason everyone wants to be a Combat Magic wizard. Although other Fields of Magic are perfectly capable of performing spells, if you’re in Combat Magic, you’re much stronger at specific enchantments. Imagine being able to start a campfire by throwing fireballs. Or freezing something during the hottest weather. If you play hockey, how about an ice pond in your backyard - in the middle of summer? And if people knew you could use the Blasting Spell to send them flying across the room, no one would ever mess with you again! Combat Magic wizards are naturally gifted at these types of spells, which makes them powerful protectors.
They Have a Better Chance at Becoming a Magical Court Member
Magical Court members are the most powerful wizards in Acanesia and are sworn protectors of the kingdom. Plus, there are all sorts of benefits to joining like fame, fortune, and even dental coverage! Other people in other Fields of Magic can become Magical Court members, but they wouldn’t be as good at the job. Most Charms wizards would never take the task seriously, and Combat wizards would just focus on the perks. However, Combat Magic wizards have all the skills needed and usually the right personality to protect Acanesia effectively.
They’re Good with Directions
If you’re in Combat Magic, you must be good with directions because of all the quests and adventures you go on. Combat Magic wizards know the importance of being on time, so they understand that when people pull over and ask for directions, they probably want to get to their destination as soon as possible. Drivers don’t want to talk for an hour about wherever they are going, like Power of Knowledge wizards do. They also don’t want to listen to you brag about the car you drive, the way people in Combat can do. The absolute worst is when you think you’re going in the right direction after asking for help, but it turns out to be completely opposite of where you want to be because it was a Charms wizard who gave you wrong directions!
So think about yourself for a moment. Are you easily scared or grossed out? Are you good at giving directions? Would you be able to handle the responsibility of being a Magical Court member? If your answers are "no, yes, and yes", you might be a Combat Magic wizard!
