Spells are a robust category of powerful arcane rituals that can be cast to fight your enemies, enhance yourself or otherwise interact with the world.
Spells are crafted into a weapon by using various essences found throughout the world and decay durability as they are used. Spells can also be enhanced when crafted by assigning up to 5 plants that provide different effects.
Four weapons can be equiped at the same time, allowing for 8 spells to be available without swapping weapons from your inventory. Additional spells can be prepared on weapons in your inventory to cover your needs.
Spells can sometimes be charged or channeled. Charged spells will often do more damage if they are charged for a few seconds before release. Channeled spells do consistent damage while they are channeled.
There are 6 types of essence that can be collected in the world to create different spells, and the base 'Arcana' is always available without requiring any essence.
Spells are divided in 6 categories, where 4 of them are combat types. (This is not clear. This text used to say spells could 'enchance crafting' if so an explanation is required)

Spell Modifiers[edit | edit source]
At the time a spell is crafted onto a weapon, additional material components can be used to modify or add additional properties to the spell. There are 5 properties which can be modified.
- Damage: The amount of damage a spell does.
- Range: The distance and/or radius of a spells effect.
- Energy: Increases the number of uses of a spell before the material components of the spell are used up and the spell is exhausted.
- Bleed: Adds damage over time to the effect of the spell.
- Life Leech: A portion of the spell's damage will be absorbed by the player as life.
A limit of 5 additional ingredients may be added to any spell, and in any combination. Multiples of the same ingredients can be used, but the bonuses granted do not fully stack (Two 5% damage modifier Cultist Leafs used do not equal 10% bonus damage); instead the next ingredient added provides a somewhat reduced effect.
- Example 1. Five crowberries are used, up to 5 % increase in spell damage (there is a reduction effect when using multiples of the same ingredient.)
- Example 2. One Buskas Leaf +2% damage, One Rowa Berries 5% Range increase, One Bone +1% Leach.
The increase in spell damage also increases the amount of heal on healing spells.
