When you face a test with magic rolls, do you need to use a combat spell?

Example

Spoiler (click to reveal)
maybe not the best example but the last card of the last room before finishing the scenario, you have to FIGHT and defeat a magic test with 9 plain shields: to roll, do I need to spend an ingredient for each roll I will attempt?


What if the card doesn't specifically say FIGHT or COMBAT? Can a Magic Roll be considered as an Agility Roll with any hit removing one opponent's shield? Shields can be removed from any space only if it is a Combat Spell?

How would a character with no default magic participate in a magic test? They do not have any particular combat spell but could have gained an item giving them the option of rolling some dice for Magic Roll.

If you are required to make a magic test, then you must use the receptacle's inherent magic ability, spells and herbs are not used.

A receptacle with no innate magic ability cannot attempt the test

unless they possess an item that grants that ability.

Note that such an item may only be used once per TU, that is, you may not pass it to another non-magic receptacle to use in the same TU.

thanks for the quick answer

and does it work as a normal Agility or Combat roll? For any hit rolled a shield is removed?

Yes, each success removes one shield.
