At this moment, you have to choose to spread your influence and get more power. The first route - also the simpler route: violence. To be more specific, you and your allies will bring your magic wands to both the PvE and PvP battles. Hunting the legendary beasts, or embarks in the epic house wars will be the quickest way to make your name remembered.

The second route is to grow your empire peacefully. Forming an alliance with other empires nearby, trading necessary goods, and spread your influence through the diplomatic discourse. You can still enjoy the magical battles by fighting and taming legendary beasts, so you don't have to worry.

Speaking about beast taming, you can tame the most hostile creatures in this world using the Pacify spell. After bringing them to your side, you can help them level up through battles, and they could be very useful in the future. For example, the Orcs are great with tower sieging, Horses will make you travel fasters, and we all know how dangerous Dragons are.

Last but not least, your magical power allows you to fly instead of running in the land. You can fly using your wands, but it's quite limited, so you can sit on the back of your mounts such as the dragons or huge eagles. It looks good, and feels good at the same time!
