    WHY ARE 'SPELLS' CALLED 'SPELLS'? It doesn't make sense,it must be 'potions'

    Haven't you read harry potter?

    A spell is a set of words that triggers a magical action.
    A potion is a liquid, which has magical effects.
    So why are spells called spells? Ironic!

    If your knowledge of magic is based entirely on Harry Potter then you may want to do some more reading.

    For one there's different styles of magic in stories usually seperate into hard and soft magic systems.

    Haven't you got common sense (no offence meant )

    Can you call something that comes corked inside a bottle as a spell?

    I can't believe we've been duped this entire time. From this point forward I refuse to spend any money on this game until this is changed. Actually, better yet, I will just quit. I'll make sure to put all my storages outside my base first.

    *sigh*

    a potion is a mixture of physical elements which combined have an inert chemical reaction. when imbibed, these potions create a biochemical reaction which affects those who drink them to generally work faster or be more powerful

    a spell is a magical imbuement of an object (in this case, usually a liquid) which is held in suspension until released. upon release from its confining chamber (vial or jar) it's magical properties are dispersed in a very small area. because spells are so limited in area, they are cast on a suspension liquid which causes a "splash" effect and dramatically increases their effective range for use in warfare

    You think something is named wrong
    wanting it renamed would imply there is a bug with the name
    therefore it would be a bug

    Yeah, the earthquake potion, the skeleton potion, the bat potion, the clone potion. That make a lot of sense, lol

    Why are those fakers called Valkyries? They have no wings, nor they are weilding a spear, nor they take the fallen to Walhalla.

    Sometimes names are just names and SC decided to make the 'spells' look like 'bottled magic' for fun. Could've been crystals, sparkly sprinkles, or just a symbol.
