Talk:Direct damage spells

Do spells like Land Mine and Fire Wall count as "direct damage"? I would consider them "indirect damage", because you don't get to choose which stack(s) the spells hit.

Well, your logic is valid. Personally I am not convinced that that this page is even necessary. After all, "direct damage spell" is an unofficial word not known by the manual or the game itself. So I would be more than happy to merge this page to spell page. There is already adventure map spells section.
What comes to your question, I would say that Land Mine and Fire Wall are considered to be direct damage spells. I think the key here is, that their effect directly cause damage to creatures, although the effect might be delayed and the player can not choose the affected creatures. But of course this is a matter of perspective and opinnion. –Kapteeni Ruoska (talk) 06:57, 14 September 2015 (CEST)
I think merging is a good idea. The spell page has a list of "Adventure map spells" with subsections for Charting, Recognaissance, boats and movement. Would it be better to have another section for "Combat spells" with subsections for "damaging" and "buffing", etc, or would it be better to have a section for "Damaging Spells" and a section for "Buffing spells", etc, with subsections for things like "single-target" and "mass spells"?
