Wizardry I-V Spells

The Wizardry Wizard

Scenarios 1-4 have the same spells, with a few changes for scenario 5. Each spell is listed with its name, translated name, when it can be casted, and what it effects. The next line describes in more detail how the spell works. There are two spell classes (Mage and Priest) and seven levels for each class. Spell points in each level are earned along with learned spells, with at least one point for each known spell.

One aid in memorizing these spells is to learn the prefix structure. For example BA- is a negative prefix, indicating damage to monsters. There are also varying superlative prefixes, such as MA- and LA-. Take the time to cast the protective spells that you can before exploring.

MAHAMAN Great Change Combat Variable
Does something random, stronger than Haman. Drains the caster one experience level, and is forgotten when cast. In some versions the caster can choose from a list of three possible effects. In the Wizardry Archives, you cannot choose in Scenario 1, but you can in Scenario 2 (useful for facing the KOD items). These are the possible effects:
   Silence the Monsters
   Make Magic More Effective
   Dialko the Party 3 Times
   Heal the Party
   Destroy the Monsters
   Protect the Party
   Teleport the Monsters
   Reanimate Corpses
MALOR Apport Any Party
Teleports the party randomly within the current level when used in melee, but when cast in camp, you can decide exactly where you want to go. If a party teleports into stone it is LOST forever, so the spell is best used in conjunction with DUMAPIC. Some levels of the dungeon (1-10 and 2-6, for example) contain magnetic fields that bounce back incoming teleports.
MAWXIWTZ Mad House Combat All Monsters
[Wizardry 5] Causes random but usually devastating effects to all monsters
TILTOWAIT Ka-Blam! Combat All Monsters
The effect of this spell is somewhat like the detonation of a small tactical nuclear weapon. The party is protected from its effects. Unfortunately for the monsters, they are not. The spell causes 10-100 hit points of damage to all monsters.
