Getting started: The Mana Seed
Mana Seed: First visit
To start the Magic Quests you need to touch the Mana Seed first. The Mana Seed can be found in a cave northwest of Hurnscald. To find it, head west from the Soul Menhir of Hurnscald. At the first fork (at a farm with many trees), go north. Continue north until the path forks again. Take the west fork and follow the path to a set of caves, one higher and one lower. Enter the higher cave, and continue through until it exits. Continue east along the stones in front of the cascade and into a second cave. The Mana Seed will be in the northeast corner.
Wyara's Mana Potion
Wyara is able to create a Mana Potion for you. Auldsbel and Rauk The Alchemist are able to do so as well but Wyara is the best choice as she asks for the fewest items in exchange. Note that the option to ask her about the potion only appears after touching the Mana Seed the first time so you can't skip that point.
Mauve Herbs are dropped by:
Bottles of Water are dropped by:
Mana Seed: Second and third visit
- General Magic Skill level 1
- 1,000 EXP
When #abizit answers that "You feel in perfect control of your magic" and you are at least level 30, come back to get the General Magic Skill level 2.
- General Magic Skill level 2
- 10,000 EXP
Note: At the present time the players magic level cannot be greater than level 2.
Cure The Pond
Wyara will also ask you to cure the pond at the west of Hurnscald. It is a very small pond with a rock in the middle. She will ask you to create a special potion for the pond, twice. Each potion requires 20 Mauve Herbs and 20 Maggot Slimes. To purify the pond, use the potion while standing at the center of the pond but do not drop it! Dropping the potion will result in nothing.
After you get Nature Magic you can ask Wyara to teach you some spells. She knows about #inwilt (who is around), #inzuwilt (locate spouse) and #kaflosh (magic rain). All these level 1 spells require General Magic Skill level 2.
Mauve Herbs are dropped by:
Maggot Slimes are dropped by:
- Mana Bug (10%)
- Maggot (8%)
- Cave Maggot (8%)
- House Maggot (8%)
- Bat (8%)
- Fire Goblin (8%)
- Ice Goblin (8%)
- Angry Fire Goblin (8%)
- Nature Magic Skill Level 2
- 5,000 EXP
- #inwilt spell
- #inzuwilt spell
- #kaflosh spell
Elanore The Healer
Later, when you have a greater control of magic, which means after touching the Mana Seed, she will teach you the #lum spell and explains how it works:
To be a good healer you must heal a lot of players who are heavily wounded. Elanore will take a close look at you to see if you are a good healer.
- The difference between slightly damaged and heavily wounded players is big, so don't underestimate the efficiency.
- When you heal a player, you will receive EXP (the more damage you heal, the more EXP you earn - up to 400 exp with #lum).
- With Manaplus standard settings you can press the "Q" key to select the closest player and "C" (while targetting this player) to heal him/her. This is often more comfortable than typing "#lum Playername" in the chat tab.
- 5 Lifestones and 100 EXP (repeatable)
- #lum spell
Get Life Magic Skill level 2
When you have healed enough players Elanore will accept you as a life magic student and you get the Life Magic Skill level 2 . When you achieved the General Magic Skill level 2 and have healed enough players she will teach you the #inma spell, the greatest healing spell currently in the game and how to make Lifestones yourself with #manpahil.
- Life Magic Skill level 2
- #inma spell
- #manpahil spell
She will tell you the invocations to both the Summon Pinkie and the Summon Mouboo spells she found but she doesn't know the right ingredients for these spells. Your task is to find those ingredients. Starting with the Summon Mouboo spell you will have to type in the ingredients. The right ingredients are one Root and a Mouboo Figurine so you have to type "Root" and "MoubooFigurine". You also have to give her these items to complete this subquest. Once you typed in and gave her the correct ingredients she will spawn a Mouboo and give you 10,000 EXP as a reward.
Then she will ask for the ingredients of the Summon Pinkie spell which are "Root" and "PinkAntenna". Once you gave her both the ingredients she will spawn a Pinkie and give you another 10,000 EXP reward.
- The input is case sensitive and will not accept spaces.
- You can type in any ingredient you want. If you have that with you she will take it and the item is gone. So do not give her any rare items just to play around. Items you give her trying to complete the Quest will be lost and cannot be restored.
- #kalboo spell
- #kalgina spell
- 20,000 EXP
The Old Wizard lives with his apprentice, in a magic house in woodland hills, far north of Hurnscald. To find his house, follow the stone road west to the first northern going stone road. Follow the road up to the T, turn right and take the first dirt path to the right: you will soon see it on the right of your character.
While #anwiltyp only helps you to hide from other mages trying to locate you with #inwilt the Astral Soul Skill is a must-have for those wanting to specialize in magic as it increases your Magic Attack (M.Attack) if focused on. You will also get 2,500 EXP for that.
Auldsbel can also teach you the Astral Soul Skill, but the Old Wizard ask for less in exchange.
- Astral Soul Skill
- #anwiltyp spell
- 2,500 EXP
Like Wyara, Auldsbel is also able to create a Mana Potion for you if you have already touched the Mana Seed before. However, Wyara is the better choice as Auldsbel asks for pretty much in exchange: 1 Pearl, 20 Mauve Herbs, 10 Gamboge Herbs and 10,000 GP.
Spells and the Transmutation Magic Skill
Auldsbel will teach you a lot of spells:
- #miteyo is mostly a training spell for the General Magic Skill.
- #parum <name>: Two old tritan names work with it: Skytlurk (#parum lurk) and Mouboo (#parum boo), but the first one systematically gives you a Warped Log as you don't know how a Skytlurk looks like. Unless #abizit tells you that you have at least "a very good control on your magic" it is likely your spell will fail. When Auldsbel sees a Mouboo Figurine that you created (you can't buy one and do it), he accepts you as a true apprentice and gives you his blessing (5,000 EXP and the Transmutation Magic Skill level 2).
- #gole converts Piles of Ash to Sulphur Powder.
- #patviloree crafts a Short Tank Top.
- #patloree crafts a Tank Top - Auldsbel will ask you for 20 Mauve Herbs.
- #patmuploo crafts a Cotton Shirt - Auldsbel will ask you for 10 Scorpion Stingers.
- #kularzufrill converts Raw Logs to Arrows - Auldsbel will ask you for 20 Raw Logs and rewards you with 1,000 EXP.
Note: All the Transmutation Magic level 1 spells require General Magic level 2.
- Transmutation Magic Skill level 2
- 6,000 EXP
- Spells mentioned above
Helping With Experiments
You can help Auldsbel with his experiments now to earn gold and EXP. You do not have to know magic to perform this section.
For further information check Helping With Experiments.
Rauk The Alchemist
For the Mana Potion, just like Wyara and Auldsbel, you must have already touched the Mana Seed before you can ask Rauk what he knows about it, but since he will ask you for 1 Pearl, 1 Bottle of Water, 30 Mauve Herbs, 20 Gamboge Herbs and 5 Piles of Ash you better stick to Wyara.
You might want to come back to Rauk for his Powder Making offer since Iron Powder and Sulphur Powder are frequently used as ingredients for certain spells. Take him as second option though since trading with other players usually is less expensive for you.
The Magic Swords are two among the 4 that are buried in a rock. Two of them will teach you the War Magic spells.
The "sister" stands in the middle of the river separating the Dimond's Cove from the woods to the west. You can only see it from the west bank.
The "brother" stands in the river in the cave underneath the Hurnscald's Inn. You can only see it from the west bank.
Spells and Skills taught by the Magic Swords:
- #flar (Sister Sword)

Hinnak is located north of Hurnscald. After you helped him to get rid of the Pinkies in the Farmer's Scythe Quest, he asks for a Beer. When you give him one, he will tell you a scary and funny story and you will learn the #kalmurk spell.
- 1 Beer
- #kalmurk spell
Hurnscald Town Hall Bookshelf
On the first floor of Hurnscald's City hall, search for a book in the western bookshelf. When you're skilled enough in magic, you can understand what is written inside and learn the #zukminbirf spell which allows you to transmute Iron Ore into Iron Powder. To avoid wasting Iron Ores, do not try it before #abizit says that "you are in very good control of your magic".
- #zukminbirf spell
Nina is a small girl playing just near the south entrance of Tulimshar's south bazaar. If you find how to speak to her she will tell you about the #itenplz spell.
- #itenplz spell
Tondar is the Tulimshar Magic School director. Though the school doesn't accept students at the moment, he may teach you the very important #abizit spell. However, like many other spells you can already use it before learning from him...
- #abizit spell
Light and dark path of magic
In The Mana World there are two different types of mages: ones that follow the light path and ones that follow the dark one instead. Now it's time to choose between those paths.
Being on the dark path makes you unable to learn Nature Magic with Wyara or Astral Magic with Sagatha: if you chose the Dark Path of Magic, the Earth Spirit will only teach you Nature Magic. Wyara and Sagatha will refuse to speak to you. On the other hand you can only learn the Dark Magic Skill along with dark magic spell on the dark path.
WARNING: It's not possible to change the paths once you have started this, so think twice before starting to follow either the light or dark path!
Light path: Wyara
Wyara has two more missions for you. One is saving an old tree, another one is curing a Mouboo. Of course you will get rewards by doing so, but much more important it will make Sagatha help you to improve your magic.
Old Druid Tree
If you speak to Wyara about training you once you are Level 2 in the General Magic Skill, she will talk you about a dying tree in the desert southeast from Tulimshar that needs to be helped. Use the #kaflosh spell (requires Nature Magic Skill and General Magic Skill, both at Level 2). You also need to hug the tree by typing in your chat tab: "/me hugs tree" while being next to the tree.
Warning to Manaplus users: A Manaplus-TMW server incompatibility prevents the /me command to be correctly handled when you use colored text. Set your text color to default before hugging the tree.
- 20,000 EXP
Begin by going west from Hurnscald, then proceed north from Auldsbel's house. Enter the cave with a "Danger" sign near it (the other entrance is the path to Mana Seed cave). The Mouboo is located on the 2nd level at the south end outside once you are out of the cave. You can use the #inma spell, "#inma mouboo" (not "#inma boo") on the injured Mouboo to heal it but you must have Level 2 Life Magic first. If you don't have Life Magic Level 2, then give it a Large Healing Potion.
- None if using #inma
- Large Healing Potion
Large Healing Potions can be crafted by:
- 5,000 EXP
Dark path: Earth Spirit
The Earth Spirit stands in the Tulimshar's desert. Go south of the Soul Menhir located at Tulimshar through the gate and head east. In the eastern part of this map you will find a well. The Earth Spirit is in this well so just talk to it.
Begin by going west from Hurnscald, then proceed north from Auldsbel's house. Enter the cave with a "Danger" sign near it (the other entrance is the path to Mana Seed cave). The Mouboo is located on the 2nd level at the south end outside once you are out of the cave.
- Black Turtleneck Sweater
- 100 EXP
Old Druid Tree
Instead of saving the tree you the Earth Spirit wants you to cut off a branch of it. The tree is in the same map as the spirit, just a bit more northwest. Speak to it and cut off a branch while having the Bone Knife equipped.
Furthermore the Earth Spirit will teach you some Nature Magic Skill spell, namely #plugh and #betsanc but asking for 20,000GP for each spell that it teach you.
- Druid Tree Branch
- 140,000 GP
- 6,000 EXP
- #plugh spell
- #betsanc spell
Light path: Sagatha
Sagatha will only really talk to you if you are on the light path of magic and once you have achieved Level 2 in the General Magic Skill and Nature Magic Skill. Also your evil monster kill count must be greater than your innocent creature kill count. However, she has her own ideas of good and evil monsters. Take a look at below table to see which ones she consideres as good and which as evil. The number (#) indicates how much it affects Sagatha. The "unhappiness" of Sagatha is limited to 15 so you don't have to kill a lot of scorpions to make her be happy.
|Squirrel (2)||Vicious Squirrel|
|Easter Fluffy (3)||Angry Scorpion|
|Reinboo (3)||Red Scorpion|
|Santaboo (3)||Black Scorpion|
|Pollett (3)||Wicked Mushroom|
|Mouboo (4)||Demonic Mouboo|
- Astral Magic Skill
- 5,000 EXP
Spells taught by Sagatha:
Dark path: Waric
- Warning !!
- You must have already done the Orum Quest and the Orum follow-up Quest before you ask Waric what to teach you Dark Magic.
- You must have killed the injured mouboo and cut the Druid Tree to be on the Dark Path of Magic. But it's not needed to talk and doing the Earth Spirit quest.
