All mages share a skillshot Fireball ability (Hotkey D) and a short range Blink (Hotkey F)

(NOTE - All spells uses the Q, W, E hotkey system.)

- LIST OF MAGES -
  • Sorceress: A powerful glass cannon, dealing high damage. Has Volley, Polymorph and Volatile Sphere.
  • Spell Breaker: A tanky bruiser, stealing and burning mana. Has Enchanted Glaive, Curse of Wisdom and Barrier.
  • Necromancer: A burst damage bruiser, crippling his enemies before attacking. Has Raze, Crippling Wave and Skeletal Servant.

- (OPTIONAL) TARGET DUMMIES -
You can try out your spells and items against the target dummies around the starting area.


- READY -
When both players are ready to fight, stand in the area labelled "Ready?" to the right of the Magic Shop. When both players are in this area, both players will be teleported to the arena where the duel will shortly after begin.


- DUEL -
After a 3 second countdown, the duel will begin, and your goal is now to kill your opponent.
Arena

During the duel, magical shards and runes will periodically spawn at the top and bottom of the arena, these range from health and mana restoring shards to invisibility and haste runes.

(TIPS - Try to capitalize on the runes to gain an advantage over your opponent.)

- WIN -
When one of the mages health reaches zero, the other player gets 1 point and both players are brought back as spirits to the starting area and you may select a new mage to play as for that round.

When a player reaches the selected amount wins required, they will
be crowned the victor and be the ultimate winner of the game!!!

Very good, the description looks much better now. :) Edit: Map appears to be functional & doesn't break any rules. Approved.

    It is definitely a step in the right decision, but I'd still like you to make further adjustments
    such as adding screenshots & improve the formatting.
    Take your time, there is no need to rush, the map is not going anywhere. :)

    I did some further improvements. It was a little tricky since I've never used this style of formatting system before, but I am quite happy with the result.
    Let me know if I need to change anything else!
