EvilMagic was an early form of Magic that existed when RuneScape Classic was first released. It was the antithesis of GoodMagic. Players who chose to be a necromancer in their character creation process started out with level 8 EvilMagic,[1] and players who chose to be an adventurer started out with level 3 EvilMagic.[2] EvilMagic was removed from the skill list on 10 May 2001 with the update lots of small improvements. The spells continued to exist until 24 May 2001, when the good and evil magics were officially combined into a single Magic skill.
