Darkfall Wizards Guide



Darkfall Wizards Guide by Vienemen

My plan is to keep this as a living document with as independent of an assessment on each area as much as possible. Look for weekly updates. I do this for my clan the (clickie)Order of the Blade(clickie) and the mage community.

1) Spell review
2) Skills
3) Tactics
4) Item review (mainly caster equipment)
5) Misc
6) Character page

1) Spell review(broken into 10 schools; lesser magic, greater magic, spell chanting, witchcraft, fire, earth, water, air, arcane, and necromancy) All schools may be taken if desired.

Lesser Magic(starter magic, Mana Missile and Heal Self spells are available to everyone with a staff readied to cast them. All spells can be cast while moving and sprinting. You are able to “hold” the spell by keeping the LMB down until ready to release. LM begins at 1.0 skill for everyone)

-Blast
Skill, gold: 100 LM, 250gp
Reagent : 1 Sulphur
Casting time:
Range:
Duration: 2s on dex debuff at 1.0 skill
Mana cost:
Cool down:
Projectile speed:
AoE:
Fires a missile inflicting arcane dmg to its target who will be bewildered for a short while, having his dexterity slightly lowered (15-18 pts?). Reported 12 damage at 25 skill, knock(up?) only effects caster.

-Burden
Skill, gold: 80 LM, 250gp
Reagent : 1 Resin
Casting time:
Range:
Duration:
Mana cost:
Cool down:
Projectile speed:
AoE:
Fires a missile infliciting an encumbrance penalty on its target, interfering with their casting or archery. Inflicts a 50 encumbrance penalty at rank 1.0 and does not slow the targets movement.

-Eldritch Sphere
Skill, gold: 25 LM, 100gp
Reagent : 1 Sulfur
Casting time: 2s
Range: Long
Duration:
Mana cost: 16
Cool down: None
Projectile speed: Medium, fuzzy light blue orb
AoE: small
Was the first spell I purchased. The damage was 15 and 18-20 from rear at roughly 5.0 skill compared to MM at 30 something skill and does arcane type dmg. Visual effect is ? around the caster.

-Heal Mount
Skill, gold: 50? LM, 150gp?
Reagent : 1 Mandrake
Casting time:
Range: Short
Duration:
Mana cost:
Cool down:
Projectile speed:
AoE:
Will do just that. Tip: Used to be that it takes higher spell dmg/healing when shot from behind, but that was probably patched. It has 3 inital ticks for ~6-7ish and should gain one increase at 33, 66, 99.

-Heal Self(starter)
Skill, gold: 1.0 LM, 0gp
Reagent : None
Casting time: 2s
Range: Self
Duration:
Mana cost: 18.66
Cool down: 30s
Projectile speed:
AoE:
This is your first healing support spell. It is self only (cannot be used on others) and will tick 3 times at 1.0 rank for an amount based on your skill rank and bonus dmg from items and stave. Additional ticks at 33.3, 66.6 and 99.9 skill. At around 30 something LM and 20 something heal with a R0 drop staff I can heal for 4.3 a tick. The visual effect is a red cloud swirl around the caster.

-Health to Mana
Skill, gold: 25 LM, 100gp
Reagent : 1 Sulfur
Casting time: 2s
Range: Self
Duration:
Mana cost: 20 Health
Cool down: 2s
Projectile speed:
AoE:
Was the second one I purchased. This spell increases your downtime while hunting at lower skill ranks. This is actually the spell that allowed me to “finish off” mobs during solo play back then. Additional ticks at 33.3, 66.6 and 99.9 skill each restoring for 6-8 mana points depending on staff and skill. Of the three transfers I use this one the most often. A close second is the stamina to health spell see below. Visual effect around caster? It does display a healing buff icon.

-Launch
Skill, gold: 70 LM, 200gp
Reagent : 1 Sulfur
Casting time: 5s
Range: Short
Duration:
Mana cost: 8
Cool down: 15s
Projectile speed: Medium, short light blue bolt
AoE: Small
This is a handy escape spell. It has utility in being able to be used on others for scaling objects. At roughly 50 skill with a starter staff I am able to reach the top of most city walls. Aiming at the feet produces the most minimum lift. Aming at the head or upper torso produces the highest lift…I assume it has something to do with where the base of the effect is considered and as long as it “hits” the target box in its AoE it will cause the launch up effect. Movement while launch is limited but there is enough flexability to nudge yourself on a ledge just pushing forward.

-Lay on Hands
Skill, gold: 1.0? LM, 100gp
Reagent : 1 Resin
Casting time: 2s
Range: Short
Duration:
Mana cost: 24.66
Cool down: 15s
Projectile speed: medium, short red/pink bolt
AoE:
This is the first spell that can be used to heal others. It must hit them to heal them. If it misses it is wasted and no skill gain. The amount healed is similar to heal self in dmg healed and number of ticks. Mana to cast makes heal other GM a nicer option if available. Lay on Hands does have one additional tick over Heal Other though currently even with higher skill ranks in Heal Other and likely continues to gain more ticks. Visual effect is a lime green ring(s) around the target.

-Magic Shield
Skill, gold: 25 LM, 100gp
Reagent : 1 Nacre
Casting time: 5s
Range: Self
Duration: 2 min initial
Mana cost: 18.66
Cool down: 15s
Projectile speed:
AoE:
Creates a magic barrier that may reduce the effects or area attacks and spells that affecting the caster. It does not added resistance bonuses to the stats tab or anything visable. The system message says it adds 25 to your Constitution, Fortitude, Reflex, Willpower skills. Those are primarily focused around curses and drains, poisons and bleeds, elemental AoE and mental attacks. The skills tab remains unchanged during the duration of the effect showing no increase other than the system msg. The 25 point increase has remained the same for me in skilling it up and has not increased in value. The effect is a light blue shielding in front of the caster that fades in and out within a second or two.

-Magic Ward
Skill, gold: 20? LM, 100gp
Reagent : 1 Nacre
Casting time:
Range:
Duration:
Mana cost: 12
Cool down:
Projectile speed:
AoE:
Fires a magical bolt that creates a defensive barrier around its target, and reduces the effects of area attacks and spells similar to magic shield above.

-Mana Drain
Skill, gold: 40 LM, 150gp
Reagent : 1 Sulfur
Casting time:
Range: Long
Duration:
Mana cost:
Cool down:
Projectile speed: Slow, dark blue/purple fuzzy bolt
AoE:
Fires a dark blue/purple magical slow moving bolt which drains its targets mana. This spell is slower than MM in speed. The drain is not a leech, it does not transfer to the caster. From behind at 55 LM and 5-10 skill in this spell it drained 2.2 mana for 4 ticks with dawnstaff. I am going to continue to train in this as a low priority to report results of the drain at higher skill level later. The sound of this spell being cast is a low pitched hum, the sound of the bolt is very low and quiet but makes little sparkle sounds as it moves away from you, the impact sound is a low clang of metal on metal.

Mana Missile(starter)
Skill, gold: 1.0 LM, 0gp
Reagent : None
Casting time: 1.5s
Range: Long
Duration:
Mana cost: 8
Cool down: None
Projectile speed: Slow, blue rings of energy
AoE: Medium
This your first offensive spell. It creates a shimmering blue circle that moves towards your mouse pointer slightly faster than someone sprinting (which means rather slow when you consider hitting moving targets at distance). The damage at around 30 something MM with low end staff is 9-12 or around 15 from behind and does arcane type dmg. At 50 skill gains additional rings, no additional dmg but increased radius. Visual effect is a swirl of blue arcane cloud around the caster.

-Mana to Stamina
Skill, gold: 50 LM, 150gp
Reagent : 1 Resin
Casting time:
Range: Self
Duration:
Mana cost: 20
Cool down:
Projectile speed:
AoE:
Caster increases his own stamina, at the cost of losing mana. Frequent use of this spell is seen by primary melee/archers in transfering unused mana to aid stamina consumption for running away, sprinting, or continued combat maneuver endurance. I use this one the least, far behind the other two being a primary caster.

-Stamina to Health
Skill, gold: 60 LM, 200gp
Reagent : 1 Mandrake
Casting time:
Range:
Duration:
Mana cost: 20 Stamina
Cool down:
Projectile speed:
AoE:
Caster increases his own health, at the cost of losing stamina. I recently bought this spell to aid me in sustained casting. It is easy to cycle a stamina to health, then health to mana assuming components are not an issue. I alternate this with my self heal as well. It basically is a faster cooldown self heal that requires a reagent and costs 20 Stamina. Of the three transfers as a primary mage I use this one second in amount of use.

Greater Magic(100gp, 50 lesser magic skill required to purchase, afterwards, greater magic spells may be purchased based on skill rank)

-Becon
Skill, gold: 1.0 GM, 200gp
Reagent : 1 Ash
Casting time:
Range:
Duration:
Mana cost:
Cool down: 30s
Projectile speed:
AoE:
Fires a magical bolt that creates a visual marker on its target. I have read that increased skill makes the range longer, and creates more bobbing lights above the target for increased annoyance I mean visibility. Unconfirmed and will prob remain that way as that I dont want to buy this one.

-Begone
Skill, gold: 80 GM, 500gp
Reagent : 1 Ash and 1 Bone
Casting time:
Range:
Duration:
Mana cost:
Cool down:
Projectile speed:

Reagent : 1 Sulfur
Casting time:

Mana cost: 20
Cool down:
Projectile speed:

-Heal other
Skill, gold: 15? GM, 250gp
Reagent : 1 Mandrake
Casting time: 2s
Range: Medium
Duration:
Mana cost: 18.66
Cool down: 2s
Projectile speed: Fast, short red/pink bolt
AoE:
Fires a healing bolt that will recover some of its targets health. It at base skill was slightly more than the LM version Lay on Hands. Increased amount healed perhaps .5 a tick. Need to confirm it does not increase in ticks at 33/66/99. It is on a much faster cooldown than Lay on Hands though. This is a great staple heal for GM and can be offset with LoH during intense moments when more healing is required.

-Infliction Shield
Skill, gold: 20 GM, 250gp
Reagent : 1 Nacre
Casting time:
Range:
Duration:
Mana cost: 24.66

Reagent : 2 Sulfur
Casting time: 2s
Range:
Duration:
Mana cost:
Cool down: 10s
Projectile speed:
AoE: Medium w/knockback
Launches a projectile that explodes upon impact causing Acane damage. Damage reported to be @18 skill level + r0 staff :
Front damage : 14/13/13/14/15/17/16 average=14.6

-Rend
Skill, gold: 1.0 GM, 200gp
Reagent : 1 Bone
Casting time: 2s
Range: Long
Duration: Piercing debuff duration 20s
Mana cost: 18.66
Cool down: 20s
Projectile speed: Medium
AoE: Medium
Shoots a projectile that looks like a crimson sererated ball with a twisting tail. When it lands it changes to a crimson blood blob and almost instantly vanishes. This spell has a unique low hum when compared to other LM spells I have cast. Hits for at current skill of 10.0 or so, about 2-3 dmg from back (low rank staff) per tick and .8-1 stamina per tick bleed dmg (which neither work on undead btw). It ticks 8-10 times. This may sound like a decent amount of dmg but natural regen combined with the DOT duration for full effect combined with the spell cooldown make it had to overcome an enemy at this low of skill rank exclusively. The spell reduces piercing resistances by -1.0 per cast and is a stacking debuff. (Second buff stacks at max of -.3 additional penalty or its a reducing effect) Visual around caster is a red/pink misty cloud swirl surround them, smiliar to heal self but with a low pitch hum noise while charging up.

-Shrapnel
Skill, gold: 70 GM, 350gp
Reagent : 1 Nacre
Casting time:
Range:
Duration:
Mana cost: 14
Cool down:
Projectile speed:
AoE: Medium?, w/knockback effect
Launches a projectile that explodes upon impact causing Acane damage. This missile is affected by gravity. Reported 15-40 dmg I assume front and back avg.

-Telekinesis
Skill, gold: 50 GM, 300gp
Reagent : 1 Sulfur and 1 Ash
Casting time:
Range: Short
Duration: 10s initially
Mana cost:
Cool down:
Projectile speed: Medium
AoE: Small
Creates a small cloud disk at the target location. This disk will raise any in the effect or entering the effect up and down slowly. The height of the rise initially is between 1-2 character model lengths. Height reached increases with every skill up but the size of the platform increases at the 25/50/75 milestones. The platform is slippery…thats the best description…any it was cast under while not moving wont fall off. Any running onto the platform will have a difficult time to stay on it as they slide off to the other side of the effect. I heard you can use launch at its high point for maximum reach potential.

-Unburden
Skill, gold: 25 GM, 250gp
Reagent : 1 Mandrake
Casting time: 3s
Range:
Duration: 2 min initially
Mana cost: 12
Cool down: 20s
Projectile speed:
AoE:
Reduces the casters Encumbrance. At roughly 25ish skill and my GM durable skill still in single digits, this spell lasted 2 min and 45 sec with starter staff. This allowed me to wear full chain without penalty. The encumbrance reduction was about 24 points. Assuming the reduction does not increase and only the duration does…I will work to discover the best armor combination per resistance bonus possible and post here in an update. The visual effect is a feathery swirl around the caster. Must be cast twice for full effect under encumbrance.

-Venom
Skill, gold: 60 GM, 300gp
Reagent : 1 Resin
Casting time:
Range:
Duration: Vitality debuff for 30-45 sec, initially?
Mana cost:
Cool down:
Projectile speed:

Fires a missile inflicting Poison damage to its target. Like the Rend spell, this will not affect undead. Dmg reported around 2 per tick & .5 stam DoT for 8 Ticks with a -5 VIT.

Reagent : 1 Mandrake
Casting time:
Range:
Duration: 30s initially
Mana cost: 16
Cool down: 12s
Projectile speed:
AoE:
Decreases the casters chance of spell failure. Reported to reduce fizzle rate which is more important now but the duration I am told is like 30s at around 20 skill. The reagent and cooldown may make this a better skill to level SC up with over swiftness.

-Bless Other

Press and Hold action button to create a healing sphere around the caster. Initial reports are 2ish healing per tick every 1 second until your stop focusing or are out of mana. This spell cannot be cast or maintained while moving. Healing Chant surges for about 11 per tick and lasts as long as you have mana. I would estimate it to be about fifteen seconds. Normally the chant ticks for about 5 every 1.5 seconds at 99.9.

Fires a magical ray which grants a bonus to the targets Strength. ~20 pt increase to targets stength. The visual effect on the target is similar electricity rings that stack onto the target one at a time with a force like sound then fade. The last visual effect is a clentched fist above the targets head for a second then it fades as well.

Mana cost:
Cool down: 3s
Projectile speed: Medium
AoE: None
Fires a magical ray which grants a bonus to the targets Quickness. I am still trying to determine if this spell increases both quickness amount buffed and duration or just duration. So far I have gotten varied number ranges for amount increased for quickness. Anywhere from 16-24 points. The duration has increased slightly over the 16ish skill ups since getting it. The durable magic skill for this school should vastly improve its effectiveness across the board as far as durations go. At roughly 30ish skill the duration is holding up at at least double initial duration and without durable SC yet.

-Hymn of Vigor
Skill, gold: 40 SC, 400gp

Casting time: 2s

Duration: ~1min, initially
Mana cost:
Cool down: 3s
Projectile speed: Medium
AoE: None
Fires a magical ray which grants a bonus to the targets vitality. This increases the targets vitality by 20~ with R0 a stave. I have gotten it as high as 25 with a Darkscepter. This adds 40-50 hp/20-25 stamina to the target to qualify for advanced health and stamina skills.

Mana cost:
Cool down:
Projectile speed:
AoE:
Fires a magical ray which causes an Arcane explosion. Reported to hit for about 30 in the front and 47 in the back (with a corpsecaller)… Yes, it negates armor for the most part–but as a ray it has to be a direct hit or nothing at all. The AoE it chooses is extremely random, by AoE I should clarify that it seems to be a “chain” effect–where is chooses people standing nearby at random to hit… I can cast it ten times without moving (or my targets), it will hit different people every time… Mostly it doesn’t even chain, just hits my target.

Fires a ray which transfers Health from the caster to the spell target. Each tick healed 8-9.5 initially. Effect is a downward pointing dagger above the targets head. I can out heal the dmg from back attacks on someone using a starter weapon with this spell…well until I am too low on health. Two people using sacrifice on each other can sustain a small groups life during those dangerous versions of rigor parties…plus its alot of fun trying

They are linked to stats, they open up more advanced skills, and increase all aspects of your casting eventually.

-Durable Spells Magic Skill (LM=50gp, GM=200gp): @25 skill rank for each school this skill becomes available. This is to increase the duration of spells that have a lasting buff or (even potentially) debuff effect as well as the range of spells like MM before they fade out. It does not make any spell that ticks at any interval increase in number of ticks. I am going to say a 30% increase at 100 until I prove myself wrong.

-Mana Efficiency Magic Skill (LM=100gp, GM=200gp): @50 skill rank for each school this skill becomes available. I saw immediate reduction in spell costs for at least my lesser magic spells when I purchased this. At roughtly 10 skill it was taking almost 1 mana cost off of heal self. It reduces by a percentage number because the reduction was not the same for my MM spell going from 8 mana to 7.x something. I am going to say a 30% reduction at 100 until I prove myself wrong.

-Quicken Spells Magic Skill (LM=200gp, GM=800gp): Similar in pattern for the above skills this will reduce all the casting times for spells in the target skill school. I am going to say a 30% increase at 100 until I prove myself wrong.

-Intensify Spells Magic Skill (LM=200gp, GM=800gp): If your looking to increase the dmg your spells of a given school do, here is your first taste of it. This skill directly increases dmg/effect in a percentage based on the skills rank. I am going to say a 30% increase at 100 until I prove myself wrong.

-Archmage (Int=75, 500gp) Increases the effect of most spells from all schools of magic. Unknown % of increase.

-Esoteric (Mana=250, 250gp) Grants a small bonus to maximum Mana. Unknown % of increase.

-Mana Conservation (Mana Efficiency GM=75 (which also requires GM=50), 250gp) Reduces the Mana needed to cast spells. Unknown % of reduction.

-Veteran Mage (GM=75, 500gp) Reduces the Stamina cost of spells. Unknown % of increase.

-Clever (Int=75 and Wis=50, 500gp) Increases maximum intelligence.

-Teleport Anchor (LM=75 and GM=50, 5K gp) Go to any Arcanist in Capital or Guild cities. Costs ~200 mana and stamina to mark the rune at the desired location. Have Runestone inventory and double click Runestone. (5-8 Seconds to mark spot. Teleport Rune is Created. How to use Teleport Rune: Anyone can double click it at this point any any later time and it takes 5-8s to use like a recall. Runestones are looted from mobs and are single teleport only. Initial gains were .5 per marked rune. According to GMs this will end a siege if the shardholder uses a rune.

-Focus (Int=50, ?gp) Increases mana regen rates.

3) Tactics
-I just raised my stamina to 307 with a friends quickness buff and my max stamina buff to purchase the increased stamina skill but it said I was unable to buy it. I have a strong feeling that my self buffs do not count towards these goals. Only spells from other players and only on skills that require “pools” as opposed to actual stat numbers. Also donned a few +int, wis and mana items to qualify but was unable to purchase them as well.

4) Items
List all item stats that affect casting or support casting. Ok here are points as I understand them/tested them…

-Dawnstaff (starter weapon) will no longer increase your magic skills.

-Ranked staves reduce in durability faster when casting a spell that is less than its rank. Is increased durability loss based on spell rank, school rank or a combination of both somehow? Taking suggestions on testing the last part. IMO it degrades faster when spell rank is less than rank of the staff.

-Dmg bonus/speed bonus/any other effect of a staff applies to all spells regardless of rank. (Exception to MM?)

-I have yet to see a rank 10, 30, and 50 staff.

5) Misc
-Health=150+(vitality*2)+strength/2
-Stamina=200+quickness+vitality
-Mana=100+(intelligence*2)+wisdom
