I think you should be able to create your own spells in the game. Each spell costs 5000 crowns and can only be your chosen primary school of magic. Your spell is limited to having 2 effects and cannot attack the enemy and then heal a friend but can be a drain spell that does a smaller amount of damage and heals the caster half. The effects a spell can have:
Damage Healing Damage Over Time Charm Ward Remove negative ward Remove positive ward Remove negative charm Remove positive charm Remove negative DoT Remove positive DoT Steal positive DoT Stun Global Summon minion (Choose a creature from the spiral)
They player cannot exceed more than a 50% buff or a 70% debuff and the amount of pips needed is decided by the strength and effectiveness of the spell. There would be a variety of different animations to select that could cover virtually anything you can think of. Each character is limited to 3 custom spell and the name of the spell will be a default (Ex. Balance DoT) until it is approved by a moderator.
