Fastest way to level witches powers
« on: September 13, 2013, 01:18:30 PM »
Hi, I was wondering if there was any easier/faster way to level up the witches magic. For example do I just upgrade tons of objects, or play with magic heaps, or cast lots of ice blasts.

It's going to take a while no matter what you try, but I usually go with five basic things:

1-  Have a lot of magic replenishment potions on hand.
B-  buy the most expensive wand.
4-  cast the highest level spell you can.

I tend to wait until they are high enough in magic to upgrade items magically, then do them all!

If you have access to the moodlet manager, you can instantly recharge your magic by curing yourself to get rid of the negative "out of magic" moodlet. Should speed things up.

I pretty much cast low level charms until I can upgrade appliances, then just do that until maxed out.

If you go to the spa to get the most expensive treatment, the moodlet from that will overrule the moodlet from loss of magic. Same goes for fairies. You don't need to ever use a moodlet manager or elixir if you have the spa moodlet. Of course, it's $7,500...

My preference is Conjure Apples -> Conversion Ritual. It levels fairly quickly, and the results are almost always worth more than the apple. Plus, if you don't like what you got, just convert again.

Also, get a better wand - they reduce the magic usage.

A lot of this has been said, but what I did to level up my witch very quickly was I used the top spells allowed until she could upgrade objects magically. I sent her to the spa to get the $7,500 package (so when her magic depletes she can continue to cast spells without issue) and then I set up a line of upgrade-able objects (that can be upgraded in two ways, like the cheap dishwasher that you can upgrade to either Silent Running or Unbreakable, cheap computers, cheap TVs) and just sent her down the line of objects and back. I would have her upgrade them all to unbreakable then send her straight down the line to upgrade them to whatever the other upgrade was on each item. I just kept going back and forth up the line (only stopping to have her eat a conjured apple or take an invigorating elixir to keep her needs manageable). I found that leveled me up the quickest because there was no down time between "conjure apple">putting apple on ground>casting conversion ritual or finding someone to Fire Blast/Ice Blast.

Granted, if you get bored, hang around for the Full Moon and have at it with Zombies. I used to level my Witch that way - by having a set of zombie lawn ornaments from her freezing them all with the Ice Blast (this is also a good way to get your magic up to Upgrading things). I prefer upgrading though because the only element is your Sim with the objects (which won't move or disappear off your lot). When you get a line of objects going you can just queue them up and put it on the fastest speed. It's nice to hear how everyone else levels magic too!

besides the wands and spells, having a cat helps a lot, because it seems to reduce the spell's magic cost.

Not just cats but other small pets also. But this assuming you have the Pets expansion.

Sometimes, when using moodlet manager to clear off the magic warning moodlet, the whole magic bar will disappear. My witch Desire practised spells and used the manager nonstop, and suddenly the magic bar went to 0 and stood there a whole week while Desire was still able to do all spells correctly. It went back to normal, and a few days after it was again two days empty and all spells worked like in a dream. After that, it has been normal, but I would still like to know what caused it, because it was a very beneficial bug.

Did you use a cheat to make the needs bar static? Because that's what usually caused it.

Does magic hands help with the speed at which witches level their powers?

So far, as I know the magic hand didn't raise the leveling speed for witches.

Not directly, but because Magic Hands counts as the 2nd best value for both parts of wand value, it does mean that you are less likely to fail and will use less magic than with a lesser wand.

Nope, no cheats in that file. Never ever, just very very hard use of moodlet managers bought with legally accomplished happiness points.

Hmm, that's weird. After my witch totally depleted of her power, and she use the moodlet manager, usually the magic bar going right up to full.

I think you just got a beneficial bug. There's probably a few options that can do this, and Needs Static is one of them, but I can see the Moodlet Manager causing a similar thing to happen. I would say it was just a freak accident that happened after using the moodlet manager non-stop for a long time. Who knows though, I'm not a coder so I couldn't tell you what's written about it in the core game.

This I just found out through an accident in the game but it works! I hope it works for you guys.
I had testingCheatsEnabled on and I set their motives on to static which will drain their magic for 5 hours and it will never replenish but they can still cast spells.
This only works if you have two witches and they are both high enough level to spellcast duel - that's not too high a level though, I think it's 2 or 3. If you want them to level up really quickly with no effort try this:
1. Have Witch A challenge Witch B to a spellcast duel.
2. When you can see in Witch B's queue that Witch A is approaching her to propose a duel, put another action in her queue immediately after that one, ideally one that can be performed indefinitely.
3. What will happen is that Witch A and Witch B will agree to duel but Witch B will be forced to complete the next action in her queue before starting the spellcast duel. Which will leave Witch A waiting for her to finish her activity. While she is waiting the skill bar will appear above her head and continue to fill until the duel is over, but since the duel is being postponed indefinitely, it will just keep filling and filling.
I hope this works for you guys, it worked for me but that could have been a temporary bug or something. I'll test it a couple of times and see if that's the case.

I usually just "play with magic" because the sim will occupy themselves with that while I can do stuff with other Sims. All of it seems to take a while anyways

Yeah, not unless you like fighting fires. I had my witch fire blast the floor of the salon and she spent an hour or more putting out the fire from one blast.

Constant magical upgrades are far better. Also, if you have the spellbook from the Store, learning spells from it steadily raises the magic skill without draining magic energy. I alternated between magically upgrading washing machines and reading from the spellbook for my witch. I also had her drink skill gain drinks (her mother was a mixologist, after all) and I put Chinese incense wherever she happened to be skilling. The latter is great because you can drag it to your sim's inventory and to community lots. If you have a laundromat, it's a perfect place to magically upgrade because there are a plethora of washing machines.
