There's several kinds of magic. Your characters and/or soldiers can only wield one of them. Choose wisely.
Religion and MagicEdit
Religion in AWP is nonexistent. Instead each religion relies on a philosophy. This view of power changes between the types of magic. A type of magic is not locked on its philosophy though. By actions it can be changed. Some factions (like Atal'ai) might already have a different view.
Arcane magic is the most usual magic to be seen. This is the kind of magic that the 100 humans were thaught by the elves. If used too much, it can summon demons from the burning legion. But do not fear. The guardian of tirisfal's duty is to defend the world against these summoned demons.
You can learn arcane arts here: Dalaran, Quel'Thalas(Ogres has this naturally)
The light is mostly wielded by priests. It is mostly used for heals or blessings. While light may appear to be "good and all that", then "light cannot be without shadow", thus meaning shadow magics can also be used by wielders of the light.
You can learn the light here: Northshire Abbey, Light's Chapel
This is traditional orc magic, wielded by a shaman. In this class, the shaman calls upon the 4 elements. If this shaman is really good friends with the elements, he can become really powerful.
You can learn the elements here: All orc tribes
This is the magic of the burning legion. Often recognized by green fire. This magic is used for destruction, and corruption. Wielded by warlocks.
You can learn fel magic here: From the burning legion
This is the voodoo magics of the troll tribes. The belief of Loa/Nature is that everything has a spirit you can get in contact with. Loa/Nature users can speak with the trees and animals, thus gaining the help of nature.
You can lean nature here: All troll tribes
This is the magic of elementals, and cannot be learnt by other than those. The closest you can get to this is arcane.
Mages which you use in armies only uses P1-5, while elementals uses P1-6. Only heroes can use/learn more than that. Also note that some spells are restricted on magic type.
Spells used out of combat, drains from a non-battle mana, which resets every month. The non-battle mana has the same amount of mana as the battle mana.
