NVM ... found it at the leader in the clan house but you should explain that in the begin like : later go to the clan house to get new abilities !

Well in the end battle you should end so you can replay it ... i died bcs a frost mage did Frost Defend and did 100 dmg each time and i did die , frost mages is too powerful.

Make so you can do the last battle again please ... didn't save so i didn't know you can't replay .... THAT FREAKING SUCKS !

*****ing n00b game i say... oh no you escaped ! you escpaped ! oh you esceped ! that's the game , i loved the first one but this one isn't good at all. Please remake it.

I love this game. I have been spending hours with this game and on my 4th try I was the great mage,god and a legend. I found it pretty easy to win with the chaos desert mages becouse you dont need to buy any of the defense skills becouse if you attack with high attack and your enemy uses high defense and on the next round he uses high attack you can just use your twice ability and attack again. I really enjoyed this game but you should be abble to spend your skill points and save after the last battle. it really sucks when you lose to those 4 last neutral guys and must start from the start of the final fight anyways,this game is great i would give it 4,5/5

thanks for the comments. I am fixing up spells for burning hills and adding notice for player to visit MAGIC MASTER when you first reach level 20. Also looking into saving game for the last battle.

I was an Sea mage and had an maximum mana leak effect of 16 in the description,but managed to do 24 mana leak effect during a battle.
The skill points training description glitch is also in one of special sea clan magic(additional defend I think)

Thanks everyone who spent time playing the game and wrote feedback :) I apologize for having so many bugs in the game, I thought I have tested it very carefully!

Version 1.11
Fixed Chaos Fire magic "Additional High and Low Attacking Bolts"
Fixed Great Sea magic "Additional High and Low Defending Bolts"
Fixed Mana Leak Description: the effect is Mana Leak+Mana Leak Wave(3rd Skill)
Fixed Mana Shield.
Edit Poison Water magic. Watch out for Poison Water's level 5 clan magic: POISONED DEATH!
Added in reminders to learn magic from MAGIC MASTER

Sorry my tutorial isn't clear to you, muukzor. I agree BOM2 is much more complex and therefore not so easy to pick up.

partion: For saving game between final battles, I decided not to because some people might wanted to load to earlier saved games to redistribute their skill points etc. If lose any battle, you can always click RETRY to fight the same battle again and try different strategy.
PS.I am considering making more save-game slots. If there are more than 1 save-game slot, then it might be possible to make a save-point in-between final battle.

I'm not sure if this is a bug, but it seemed weird to me. I beat the game (for the millionth time) as a white robe mage. Whenever a choice came up in which I could do something good or evil, I chose the good path. In the final battle, I defeated the minimum number of black robes required to end the war. I then ended the war and spared the lives of the black robe leaders (to save the poisoned black robes). However, my history said that my choice led to the deaths of many black robes, and that I was corrupt and was eventually replaced by another white mage. This seems like an odd ending since I did everything possible to increase my fame and reputation.

Hi icey1011, the game will end after the final battle(around year 221).
PS.If you are neutral and choose not to attend great mage election, then you will only have one more battle, if you win will have a special ending :)

hi draconator, thanks for playing the game so many times :) Hope you had a great time. Yes that part of history is a bug, I have fixed it and I double checked all the history again. Thanks for the bug report.

Here is the corrected history:
Theoden fought with White Robes in the Great Sea War against Black Robes. The White Robes won the war. Theoden fought bravely in during the war and the new Great Mage promoted Theoden as the White Mage.
Because of Theoden's decision, many Black Robe Mages were saved from poison. Many were grateful and eventually left Black Robes. Soon Black Robe was disbanded.
The following years, the Great Mage worked closely with Theoden the White Mage, they finally brought peace and harmony to the world. In Year 235, the Great Mage passed away. Theoden was elected as the new Great Mage.

Hey again!
I have listed some things in the game that I think they should change:
1)A wonderful idea for the game it would be a reset skill points button.I had made some wrong decisions and I couldn't undo them.
2)I don't know if this is exacly a bug,but I think Corruptor is unbeatable.
3)If you promise the White Robe Mages to let their mage win in the Young Mage Content and you don't they'll ask you to give the Mana Orb.You have 2 choices [1) Give them the Mana Orb,2)You say something like:Mana Orb?What Mana Orb?...Something like this in the game the Power and the Orb are connecting...I mean it says WhatMana Orb.Sorry I can't explain it better.
4)When I was recruiting Black Robe Mages I had recruited Witchhorn and in the next turn I explored and the event with the battle of Witchhorn and Windsailor began,but Witchhorn was neutreal instead of Black Robe Mage.I think this happens to the other mages too.
5)While I had a battle with a Burning Hill mage and he had 5 mana and casted a High Attack which costed 6 mana.

I think that's all:).I'll inform you if I find anymore.

"5)While I had a battle with a Burning Hill mage and he had 5 mana and casted a High Attack which costed 6 mana."

I had this problem too at the beginning of the game. My opponent only had 5 mana, but was able to cast attacks that cost 6 or 8 mana.

Thanks guys for the feedback!
emonkey1313:
You can only choose appearance after you have completed the game once with that clan.

mariouszful&draconator:
1)I'll figure out how to have a reset skill points button, I am thinking of allowing reset of skill points only once in game by visiting certain people. One concern is learning clan special/higher level magics requires 1 month, if reset the skill points, player will need to spend a few months to relearn the skills.
2)Corruptor or Magesblood are supposed to defeat player(they are level 100 mages, it should be impossible for player to defeat them at that point of time). Player are supposed to be rescued by Oldhealer. Player can defeat Corruptor/Magesblood after the young mage contest(if you choose to revenge).
3)fixed the typo, thanks for pointing it out~
4)fixed, thanks.
5)fixed, thanks.

Version 1.12
Fixed incorrect AI mana detection.
Fixed neutral mages recruited by white or black robes.
Fixed typo WhatMana...

I was a burning hill mage and was in the young mage contest, but in one of the battles my atack power decreased from 2 to 1. The bug fixed itself after the battle and I won but its a bug anyway.
I think you changed some names but they are mixed with the old ones and that's making things really confusing.

@luckas
When your power was reduced, were you fighting a dark wood mage? Their dark bolt ability does that.

@markofaca yes please. Go ahead and point out any grammatical/spelling errors you see in the game. Sometimes the game is too huge for us to go through each and every line of code. That's where all your help comes in handy. Thanks!

I also noticed a bug. When you win the contest to participate in the young mages contest and when Fleatcher of Poison Water approaches you, and you choose the option not to fight him, and then choose the HOW DARE YOU MOCK ME option this happens.

I loved the first part and now the this part too *gg* played it a lot of times (and was sleepy in the morning at work :D). I don´t know if it´s a bug but ... when you join as a white robe and try to recruit others to join you and you´re on "good" with that mage, in the textfield he appears as "neutral", but joins you after you won the battle.

Hope to see more and big thx for making the game :)
*play again*

I'm sure neutral means not a white robe and not a black robe either.
It doesn't point out your affiliation or relation with the mage.
