Magicka in The Elder Scrolls: Legends is the basic resource in every battle. Every card costs magicka to be played.
Players who start second start with the support item, Elixir of Magicka, which increases their current magicka by 1 and can be used up to 3 times.
Magicka increases by 1 whenever one's turn starts maxing out at 12 maximum magicka, but some cards can make it go higher than 12l for example, tree minder—it does not matter if one does not already have 12 magicka when Tree Minder was played, it will still go to 13 when 12 total turns pass.
Magicka is mostly manipulated and used in ones advantage by endurance creatures. cards like Stormhold Henchman gets a bonus when a certain amount of maximum magicka is reached.
- There is an achievement called the hist mage that requires the player to have reached 15 max magicka in one game.
