A spell is a magical effect a character can cast either from their spellbook or via an inscription scroll. There are two schools of magic: evocation, which governs offensive and combat spells, and manifestation which includes beneficial and healing magic.

The character's ability to cast a spell is governed by their skill level in the spell's respective school. Spells consume mana and reagents when successfully cast. Failing to cast a spell results in a fizzle, and only consumes the reagent.

If a spell is cast from a scroll then it consumes mana but does not require reagents. Additionally, scrolls effectively give the caster +30 skill in the required school. For example, Energy Bolt normally requires 60 Evocation to cast; however, if you use an Energy Bolt Scroll, it only requires 30 Evocation. This applies to all spells from both schools of magic.

After beginning to cast a spell, the character cannot move while he channels the spell. This cast duration differs from spell to spell and is doubled if the character casts while on horseback. Taking damage while casting a spell has a chance to interrupt the spell cast.

After casting is complete, but before choosing a target, the caster is free to move around (also referred to as "pre-casting"). Pre-cast spells only last a few seconds.

All spells seem to have around a 12-meter range, slightly less than Archery bows.

Another flavor element that can be used to detect which spell is being cast is the spell circle graphic that appears at the caster's hands while casting a spell. Most of the Evocation spells use an orange or red circle (with the exception of Rock Bombardment, which has a purple one), and most of the Manifestation spells use a blue or green circle.


Evocation Spells[edit | edit source]

Spells of the Evocation school deal with damaging foes. The damage dealt by evocation spells is scaled both by the caster's Channeling skill, Intelligence, and Power stats.
