Dark and Darker features various classes, but only the cleric and wizard can cast magic. This allows them to use powerful spells to defeat their enemies or cast healing and buff spells to support their party. If you are playing a spellcaster for the first time, you may be wondering how to cast spells in Dark and Darker.
How to cast spells in Dark and Darker
Casting spells can be incredibly confusing, especially for those just starting and who select the wizard or cleric. You will need to have first equipped the Spell Memory ability in the ability section. This houses your known spells and allows you to cast them in-game. Here is how to cast spells in Dark and Darker.
- Press and hold the key assigned to the Spell Memory ability.
- Make sure you have the staff equipped.
- Move your cursor to the spell you wish to cast.
- While hovering over that spell, hold right-click on the mouse.
- This will begin casting the spell.
How to use Wizard and Cleric spells in Dark and Darker
Spells take some to cast and require the use of the magic staff. This item is the wizard's primary weapon, but it is the cleric's second weapon. If you do not have this equipped, you cannot cast spells. Ensure you have properly read the spell's effects, and aim at your intended target.
One thing to note is that your Knowledge limits spells. This can be seen in the Spell tab of the Class tab. Each spell has a Knowledge amount associated with it, so you will need to balance this when building your spell book. A number in the corner of each spell represents this number. You can, however, equip more spells than you have Knowledge of, as you can find Knowledge while exploring, which will then unlock those additional spells.
