Version 0.19: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.

Earth Magic skill determines how easily you can use spells that shape or use earth, stone, iron and other such materials. Earth Magic spells deal physical damage, and can therefore be partially resisted with high AC (but not with elemental resistances).

Earth Magic is the way to go for casters who wish to bypass the Dungeon's layout, whether by passing through walls or by removing them altogether. Earth Magic also works well with Transmutations.
