    I am in SHame and trying to cast this and all I get is the animation. I have an earth elemental targeted but it says it is blocked but I can hit it with my other spells. What am I doing wrong lol?

    For blade spirits you target the ground, not the mob you want it to fight.

    Blade spirits are summons... Target the ground a few tiles from your anticipated target.

    Ok thank you, but can anyone tell me with my magery almost at 90 what spells would be best to cast as far as damaging and killing as fast as I can?

    Keeping in mind that you will want to get skill gains as well as kill the mobs, I would use explosion and ebolts for damage (both 6 circle magery spells). I would heal with mystic cleansing wind and throw in hailstorm as an attack for mystic gains.

    one thing I would add is that as you train, your focus will probably go up fast than your eval int, so your mystic spells should probably be doing more overall damage

    fireball is usually to go to for DPS, though, from my experience...especially after the hailstorm nerf ;( lol

    I think fireball would do more DPS, both from sheer damage numbers and the 100% chance to cast, but would not provide any magery gains.

    Earth Elementals are weak to fire spells as some have pointed out. To boost your spell damage you want to maximize your Evaluate Intelligence and GM Inscription for more damage which was also pointed out. To get quicker damage increases with equipment use an earth elemental slayer spellbook and put on some items with Spell Damage Increase.
    For faster spellcasting of course maximize your Fast casting 2 and Fast Cast Recovery 6 if you are straight mage. Then of course everything else is about more mana, faster mana and did I mention more mana. Maximize all these whereever and whenever you can: Lower Mana Cost, Maximize Mana Regeneration, Mana Increase, and Intelligence Increase. And of course there is always Lower Reagent Cost so you don't have to carry around reagents. Once you do all this and build a set of slayer spellbooks for all the different creatures in game you should be able to reduce most creatures to ash heaps very quickly. Spend some time in the Hunters Guide learning what creatures are weak to what spells, that knowledge will be very helpful in the long run. Enjoy ;)
