There is a special rule in place that offers schools of magic more often as a choice when leveling up than the secondary skill learning percentages suggest: A new school of magic will be offered at least every 4 levels for Might heroes and every 3 levels for Magic heroes. If can be offered more often by chance. Example: The Might hero was not offered a school of magic when reaching levels 2 and 3. The hero will then be guaranteed to be offered a magic school at level 4. At level 8, the hero will be offered again a new magic school if none was offered at levels 5, 6 and 7.

As any other magic school, Fire Magic is very useful as many of its spells will wreak havoc against your enemies in short order. Expert Curse will save lives of your troops in a fierce battle, especially against units with a high range of damage (e.g Cerberi or Storm Elementals). Expert Bloodlust will increase the damage dealt by your troops, and blinding will work properly at the highest Fire Magic level, since there will be no retaliation. Together with Resurrection, Blind on the last remaining enemy stack will allow you win a big battle with no losses. Armageddon and Berserk may be crucial for defeating large amounts of troops; for example, Berserk will work in Faerie Dragons scenario (Dragon Slayer campaign), when battling legions of Nagas (they will simply hit each other, dealing enormous damage to themselves). Frenzy is very good for those who attack without retaliation, casted immediately before the target's turn. Bizarrely, among the most devastating damage spells in the game, only Armageddon belongs to Fire Magic school.
