I'm playing the newly released Magicka: Wizards of the Square Tablet for the iOS and have read that the Seagul is the only creature weak to Oil. Oil? I haven't seen any oil in the game? How do I use oil? I can only assume this is a as-yet undiscovered spell combo but I haven't been able to find anything on this. Any ideas?

Do you maybe mean Grease? – LessPop_MoreFizz Apr 6 '13 at 19:55
Nope, the description says specifically that the Seagul is "the only monster weak to oil" – McArthey Apr 6 '13 at 22:06
Considering that it's magicka and the developers have a very quirky sense of humor, it might just be a reference to sea birds dying in oil spilling accidents, not a reference to real game mechanics. – dbemerlin Apr 7 '13 at 10:37

There is a robe called the 'Contaminated Robe' that says 'Spells inflict Oil status instead of Wet status'. This is the only other reference I've found to 'Oil' so far.

Also scourge has a chance of inflicting oil. – user48125 May 6 '13 at 9:57

Well there are two ways of getting oil: using the contaminated robe with water and the oil rain spell. Earth, water, water, earth, or water surrounding the earth.

Where is the oil rain spellbook found? – badp Jul 14 '13 at 14:38
@badp Unlocked by: Completing the level The Fallen Maiden, located at the End of the World in The Underworld. Must be unlocked to cast. – zespri Apr 20 '14 at 8:00
