This question already has an answer here:
So I'm trying to explain the basic steps behind magically creating lightning between your hands by combining two or more basic elements together:
The elements you can use are: Fire, air, water, earth.
- Fire allows the manipulation of fire, can change temperatures (can make things cold as well) by channeling or absorbing energy, and can cause sparks/friction.
- Air allows control over placement and density of air and other similar gas structures.
- Water and earth have similar properties to air regarding their respective elements.
Now assuming that you have this magical fuel called 'mana' to support this with a steady output of 10k joules:
- which combination of elements would you use in order to explain something similar to a taser(preferably while having to use both hands)?
note: the explanation does't have to be too in depth: implying that there are positive/negative charges and magnetism involved would be more than enough.
edit: note that the focus here is for a more compact form of electrical shock, rather than building up a big thundercloud to strike someone with lightning, I would've wanted the equivalent of something like a police taser.
edit: basically meant to replace this: ...In a medieval setting
