Primal spells allow mages to harness the power of the elements, mostly to deal damage to their enemies.

Blizzard, Earthquake, Inferno and Tempest can be cast on creatures or locations not in line of sight. For example, a mage can cast this spell on creatures in a different room when using the overhead view.
