Quotes: Kill It with Fire
IF ALL ELSE FAILS USE FIRE.
"Fuego, Pyrofuego! BURN!"
Fire was the weapon of choice when it came to combat magic. Though it was taxing upon the will and stamina of the wizard, it got a lot of energy concentrated into a relatively small space. It illuminated darkness, something that was nearly always to a wizard's advantage, and it hurt.
Every living thing had at least a healthy respect, if not outright fear of fire. Even more to the point, fire was a purifying force in its non-physical aspect. Dark magic could be consumed and destroyed by fire when used with that intent.
Sometimes it's better to light a flamethrower than curse the darkness.

flame on them..."

"Of the four classical elements
, fire is by far the most primal. The most challenging. The most dangerous. The most transforming. The most visceral. The most fun. Seriously, which enemies would cower in their tracks if you appeared in front of them and proclaimed yourself to be a great water wizard?
