Actually, there is a very good reason why magic costs HP to use in that game while the tomes in the other games have durability. Here's how Kaga had described magic way back when: Quote Comment: Originally primitive deities existed at Akaneia and people believed these deities existed in all things. To lead mankind, Gotoh utilised the power of these deities. Magic (both offensive and recovery) is about as advanced as the dragon race’s technology, but it was difficult and dangerous for humans to use. Gotoh convinced humans to borrow the deities’ powers and warned them at the same time. So fire magic comes from the deity of fire, wind magic is borrowed from the deity of wind and etc. Magic is thus the technology where one harnesses energy that exists naturally. Spell books and staves can be thought of as vessels that store this energy. To release this energy requires a certain amount of skill, such as by chanting keywords or through mental control techniques. In order to acquire a sufficient skill level, one must undergo self-training. Prayers to the deities seems to reveal the keywords, while it also raises one’s mental capacity. Meanwhile, to protect the most powerful spells, like Aura or Excalibur, Gotoh attached a contract to them so that only the user could wield them. The same kind of protection was also placed on the Falchion. ^ This shows that the durability in the magic tomes is in fact due to the tome having run out of the energy that was stored in it. And in Echoes, when one uses magic, they aren't using tomes. This is because they are actually using their own body's energy for the magic spells. Thus it consumes HP. Very smart when you think about it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
