The two were NOT one and the same.
Everyone keeps CLAIMING that and yet not one person has shown the difference. At least if the game has some special spell list that were actual SOURCE Spells or something of that nature, that would be fine, but the fact is in the game itself source and magic are exactly the same.
Face it people, I found an absolute contradiction in this game and people don't like it. no one has made sense out of this contradiction and no one can either because spells are spells, and every spell in the game all get cast using Source (AKA Mana)
People keep failing to provide the in game reason for source. Along with what source does that magic cannot?
The fact is there is nothing in this game that makes SOURCE and different than magic. There are no special spells, no special equipment or anything for that matter that makes SOURCE and MAGIC different.
SOURCE literally has no relevance or function in the game itself.
Of course someone who cannot argue this will say I'm a troll and or an idiot...Those people are so in love with the game that gosh forbid anyone find something inconsistent that makes no sense, they cannot handle it. So instead of actually posting anything intelligent that actually provides a counter side, they instead throw insults around and say they're done.
