For all of recorded history, it has been known that burying a human mage in the soil at a certain depth slightly weakened their magical ability. Migelayn legends, and later [[The Scrolls|the Scrolls]] state that this represents [[Mighel|Mighel's]] warning to humanity that they should not cower underground, as the ancestors of the Migelayn did. Waioloyan mythology, on the other hand, often attributed this effect to the earth itself asserting its power over humanity.

The Western Wai were the first to make use of Mage's Bane for offensive purpose, though not in the refined form used today. In the creation of their metal armor, they would add some soil to the molten metal that would be forged into armor. This gave it a slight resistance against Epzinic magic, which, when fighting Zeminarans, did increase the odds of victory slightly. Some Western Wai tribes would even coat themselves in the soil before battle for a small boost to their Epzinic resistance, though this practice would fall out of favor after it was noticed that it also slowed magical healing. This practice eventually spread to Efsisi and the empires around it by Geran Year 600, who refined the process and began to use it in weapons as well, and from their knowledge of this process spread throughout the world.

This technology remained relatively stagnant until the late 1100s. [[Wen Sleni]], scientist and polymath from the kingdom of Chela, was the first person to isolate the specific mineral in the soil that blocked Epzinic magic.
