So I've been practising magic for more than two years now. I originally started doing it because of a life long fascination, especially with escape... but it has since became a really good way of getting out of comfort zone and increasing confidence.
I've been focusing almost exclusively close up sleight of hand(prestidigination) and I can do quite a few awesome effects.
So I want to put it to DDO, what do you think of magic?

In the paraphrased words of The Amazing Randi, what you do is stage illusion, not magic. :P

But it's neat stuff generally.

Note the bit where I said 'close up sleight of hand...'
It LOOKS like magic.

Definitely. If a guy is hot and can do magic, it's such a turn on.

That's because it is magic.
