** The Water element as well -- it gives you a health-recovery spell. Since mana slowly regens outside of the battle as you walk around, you can heal yourself back to near full health for next to no cost. To further extend water's usefulness, Drain Magic can also sap enemy's MP, which is very effective to use against bosses in case you run out of MP recovering items nor want to rely on the staff attacks slowly recovering MP.

Oh, and [[spoiler: most of the enemies and bosses halfway through the game are weak to water, including Fargo and King Beigis.]]

* ThatOneBoss: [[spoiler: King Beigis]] is just ''mean''. His attacks hurt like hell and are difficult to dodge and he's too small for Avalanche to do much good.

* ThatOneBoss: [[spoiler: King Beigis]] is just ''mean''.''brutal''. His attacks hurt like hell and are difficult to dodge and he's too small for Avalanche to do much good. He is also the only boss where his close attack does less damage than his long distance attack, so attacking him from up close is the only way to fight him.

* SpiritualSuccessor: Succeeded by {{Magicka}}. In that game, it's gone up to four wizards, it's an action game, it has no mana, there are lots of explosions, and... there are guns.

to:

* UnderusedGameMechanic: Even the game's detractors tend to admit the hexagonal movement grid is a very interesting mechanic. Ultimately, though, it isn't used as well as it could have been. While it can be used to dodge short ranged attacks, most enemies can hit long range which makes trying to move away from them mostly pointless. The terrain itself also rarely has an impact on the battle, as most of the time it's either flat ground or can easily be worked around.

* TheDancingBear: Debates about the quality of the game aside, it's hard to deny that it being one of the ''very'' few [=RPGs=] on the ''UsefulNotes/Nintendo64'' is at least a major contributor to why it's so well known.

** Almost any guide you read online will tell you at least one element is worthless, and one is instawin. These elements will be different in every guide you read.

to:

** Almost Focusing on any guide one elemental branch can quickly become game shredding. Since the game doesn't expect the player to find every spirit in the overworld and expects you read online will tell to level up the spell branches evenly, by focusing on on one elemental branch, you'll be getting near mid-game spells before you at least one even reach the second town. Even enemies strong to the element is worthless, and one is instawin. These elements in question will [[ScissorsCutsRock be different in every guide you read.unable to stand against it.]]



** Your staff eventually ends up your most powerful attack method. Combine it with an ability that allows you to NoSell magic, and you can basically act as a staff-wielding monk who just so happens to cast spells.

to:

** Your staff eventually ends up your most powerful attack method. It's supposed to be balanced by the fact that you need to get up close to the enemies to hit them with it but since taking damage increases defenses and health and using the staff in battle ''also'' adds exp to your health, this will quickly become a non-issue. Combine it with an ability that allows you to NoSell magic, and you can basically act as a staff-wielding monk who just so happens to cast spells.

to:

* ToughActToFollow: The NES and SNES were awash with classic RPG's including Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Earthbound, and Soul Blazer. But when Square Enix jumped ship to the Playstation and few RPG's came out for the N64 at all, it made the flaws of this game all the more noticeable.
