Discussion[edit]

Town Portal is one of most powerful spells in the game, as it allows hero to travel immense distances instantaneously. Therefore it is often banned in multiplayer or tournament games.

It is possible, that in some version of the game, that hero is unable to use Town Portal spell in underground if all towns are in the upper world, and if the hero has no Earth Magic at least on the Advanced level.
