List of spells

This is a complete list of spells in the game, including magic from the Standard, Ancient, Lunar, and Dungeoneering spellbooks. The magic interface can be reached using the button on the top-right of the player interface. The maximum damages listed next to combat spells are the basic maximum hits; spell damage increases with the player's Magic level and Magic bonus.

The maximum damage is tied to the lower level of either the player's weapon or spell. For instance, a player using a staff of light (level 75) to cast Fire Surge (level 95) will only have a base maximum damage of 720, same as the base maximum damage of Fire Wave (level 75), not including the caster's magic level and magic bonus. Spells themselves have scaling damage; the damage listed below is the minimum, at the level they are unlocked. Spells' base maximum damage scale per level until a certain level that depends on the spell in question.
