This is a question I’ve had since I first came here, and it may be a stupid question but I figure I’ll see what insight y’all can lend. When I think of the three main necessary skills of a magus, I would have thought of the two listed here, soul travel and divination, but the third (actually frankly first) I’d have thought of would be enchantment rather than evocation.
Is it that evocation just tends to be much more powerful than the magician using his own power to enchant? Or that evocation at the end of the day does more to empower the magician altogether because of everything that can be learned and acquired from ancient and powerful spirits?
I mean, frankly I feel like I’ve answered my own question here, but I’m just wondering, should the importance of mastering personal spellcasting be considered ancillary to evocation since it’s just not as useful overall?
