Magicka is used in Tamriel to cast spells. I wonder if they counted on the TES fame when they made this game.
I believe Riot has stated before that they wouldn't put in an Invoker-style champion due to the fact that he's complicated.
The problem with such a diverse system is that while deep gameplay potential exists, everyone will just use the Super Meteor and stealth move.
It seems like Riot is trying to steer clear of complex champions, like Invoker, sadly.
Deafening Blast / Meteor combo = win
