Encompassing the studies of the winds, kinetics, and chaos, scholars of this sphere channel the elemental power of air. Resonating with chaotic tendencies, scholars who are lawful cannot choose this sphere as a discipline.
All scholars have the option of choosing a minor field of study to complement their major, a choice which grants them access to the lesser spells of that sphere. The increased awareness of both forms of magic sometimes lends greater insight into the Art than either alone, allowing for certain 'mixed-sphere' abilities, such as fire and earth combining to form lava.
- Air/Water: a dedicant of these spheres blends illusion and life even as he gains power over mist and rain.
- Air/Earth: by balancing the flightly magics of Air with the steadfastness of Earth, a wizard of these spheres gains a unique perspective on order and chaos.
- Air/Void: few can stand before one who masters these arts as she poisons even the very air before her.
- Air/Spirit: this mage of illusion and quintessence is a great friend -- or a terrible foe
- Air/Fire: wielding flame and wind, this sorcerer sweeps his foes easily aside
Those scholars who pursue the same minor sphere as major have opted instead to focus their efforts narrowly on one specific branch of magic, forgoing the broader understanding of magic to gain insight into the greater spells of their chosen sphere. Even here there is disagreement and diversity of thought; many masters of greater magic follow distinct paths of research as they delve deeply to gain understanding of the the Art.
- Path of the Endless Facade: dedicating themselves firmly to the study of illusion, those of the Endless Facade spin wheels within wheels, remaining always a step ahead.
- Path of the Flickering Skies: by drawing power from lightning and thunder, these magi embrace the destructive energy of nature itself, channeling its power through their very beings.
- Path of the Windrider: casting themselves to the whims of fate and wind, these scholars are as flighty as the magics they wield.
