Playing As Frostborn

  • Frostborn Level1.png Frozen Alacrity grants you high mobility, especially when traveling long distances.
    • This is very convenient for aiding your squad in reaching Mana Vault New.png Mana Vaults before your opponents.
  • Remember to make use of Frostborn Level2.png Icicle to scout an area for nearby players, or to regain vision if you lose track of someone.
    • To this end, its vast range enables you to gather intel on remote fights from a safe distance.
  • Flash Freeze can quickly turn the tide of battle by blocking potent projectiles or Freezing opponents for a free shot.
    • Practicing the timing of this sorcery is key to success, particularly when it comes to Frostborn Level3.png Tundra's short immunity.

Playing Against Frostborn

  • The Ice Lance spell has the highest mana cost in the game. This severely hinders their damage output in the early game.
  • Frostborns are considerably vulnerable at close range, since they can't charge-up Ice Lance fully without becoming an easy target.
  • Ice Puddles are susceptible to many detrimental Elemental Interactions, such as shattering them into Ice Mist.
    • Unlike other classes, Frostborn's mobility in heated combat is very limited. Keep up the pressure once you close the distance.
    • Be on the lookout for the puddles in the distance, as they can be spotted from afar, giving away their location.
  • Remember that Flash Freeze doesn't block projectiles from above or below. Levitate overhead to sneak a shot in.
    • Alternatively, utilize Harmony.png Harmony's freeze immunity to disregard their sorcery entirely, putting them on the backfoot.

Playing As Conduit

  • Lightning Bolts are very fast projectiles, excellent for both long range poke as well as chasing opponents down.
    • In addition, they are a hefty counter to airborne opponents who are less mobile and thus easier to track.
  • Capitalize on your long range by climbing up high towers, mountains and the like.
  • While you can't cast Spells during Lightning Strike's cast animation, you can still use your rune charges.
  • Activate Conduit Level2.png Overload often, even outside of combat, to ensure that you always have an extra rune charge at the ready.
  • Conduit Level4.png Secondary Strikes allows you to more easily cut off choke points for exceptional zone control.

Playing Against Conduit

  • While Conduits have great sustained damage, they lack burst.
    • Use this to your advantage by taking quick trades and breaking line of sight.
  • Their mobility is limited while firing bolts, making them an easy target for most sorceries.
  • Applying pressure and forcing them to use a rune charge, will reset Conduit Level1.png Potential Energy's damage boost.
  • Conduits struggle to track opponents in close quarters combat, so close the distance whenever possible.

Playing As Pyromancer

  • Pyromancers have a phenomenal early game due to Fireball's high base damage + Ignite from Pyromancer Level1.png Combust.
    • The tick damage numbers from Ignite can also serve as a way of tracking opponents.
  • When paired with the Toxic Gauntlet, you can ignite Toxic Clouds into deadly Dragonfire explosions.
  • The Flamewall has lots of uses, including zoning, cutting off areas, blocking certain spells and finishing off opponents.
  • When fighting Frostborns & Toxicologists, take cover behind your Flamewall as their spells cannot pass through it.
  • Try to stay on high ground as much as possible, and use Pyromancer Level2.png Firefly if necessary. It makes hitting your Fireballs much easier.
    • Furthermore, if you miss your Fireball from this angle, it has a chance to deal AoE damage when it hits the ground.

Playing Against Pyromancer

  • Due to Fireballs' slow projectile speed, they become vastly easier to dodge at longer ranges.
    • For the same reason, Pyromancers also struggle with hitting airborne targets.
  • Be wary of their many AoE options such as Pyromancer Level1.png Combust. All of them are ground based, so you can escape to the air for safety.
    • If you're a Stoneshaper, you can instead use their fires against them by firing a Shockwave through it, leaving a Fire Trail.
  • While you should generally avoid fighting Pyromancers up close, their Fireball & Toxic Cloud explosions can inflict self-damage.
    • The Toxic Cloud explosion will also rid of all fires, including their Flamewall, enabling you to pass through it.
  • Many Sorceries can block Fireballs, Tornadoes and Wind Shears can even deflect them! See Elemental Interactions.

Playing As Toxicologist

  • Use Toxic Spray's Corrosion to slowly chip away at an opponent's remove armor before going in for the kill.
  • Toxicologist Level2.png Vanishing Mists offers exceptional mobility in combat, use it to close the gap and ambush your opponents.
  • Utilizing Invisibility from runes, you can trigger Toxicologist Level3.png Outbreak multiple times for immense burst.
  • Igniting Toxic Clouds into deadly Dragonfire is a great way to finish off an opponent, especially with Toxicologist Level4.png Spreading Sickness.
    • However, use this combo with caution, as you lose your mobility option from Toxicologist Level2.png Vanishing Mists.
  • Initiate fights in tight corridors where it is harder for opponents to avoid your burst.
    • Toxic Puddles and Clouds prove to be tremendously difficult to deal with in these spaces as well.

Playing Against Toxicologist

  • Place down the Flamewall as cover if you get ambushed, as Toxic Spray shots cannot pass through it.
  • Blow up Toxic Clouds with fire to deny their mobility from Toxicologist Level2.png Vanishing Mists and burst from Toxicologist Level3.png Outbreak.
  • Tracking.png Tracking or damage over time effects will reveal their position while they're Invisible.
    • To this end, breaking their Invisibility through AoEs from sorceries can also prove to be a viable strategy.
  • Whilst Toxicologists' burst is lethal, it requires them to be at close range. Keep at a distance through wise rune usage.
  • Wind Shears' unique ability to create Toxic Mist is a potent counter to Toxicologists that aren't careful.

Playing As Stoneshaper

  • Make the most out of Stoneshaper Level1.png Stoneskin by using Shockwave while you're repositioning, even if you won't hit a target.
  • Save a rune charge for when your armor has been broken, this buys you time to safely regenerate it.
  • Using Stoneshaper Level2.png Bedrock efficiently can make your movement & shockwaves noticeably more unpredictable.
  • Shockwave will often force an opponent to levitate into the air or onto high ground, expending lots of mana.
    • Take advantage by aggressively applying pressure with your secondary Gauntlet while they recharge.
    • When combined with fire, Shockwave will leave a deadly Fire Trail, complementing its ground zoning potential.
  • Stoneshaper Level3.png Accretion increases Boulderfall's size substantially, becoming nearly unavoidable if thrown into confined areas.
    • It can also be used defensively to block an opponent's Spells.

Playing Against Stoneshaper

  • Stoneshapers are extremely terrain dependent. Since Shockwave can only be used on the ground, they struggle against airborne targets.
  • Control the flow of battle by staying above them at all times. They'll be forced to resort to their secondary gauntlet.
  • Be mindful of Boulderfall's surprisingly high burst potential once Stoneshaper Level4.png Avalanche is unlocked.
  • Having the least mobility of all the classes, Stoneshapers are reliant on their rune to reposition and chase opponents.
    • Exploit this by going on the offensive while their rune is on cooldown, as their escape options are limited.
  • Most sorceries and Elemental Interactions are ground based, which naturally puts them at risk to taking AoE damage.

Playing As Tempest

  • Tempest is arguably the most mobile class in Spellbreak once a player masters how to use Tempest Level1.png Wind Surge.
    • Remember that you can wind jump off walls, trees, rocks etc. to utilize the skill to its full potential.
  • Keep in the air for as long as possible in order to capitalize on the effects of Tempest Level3.png Squall and Tempest Level4.png Sudden Gust.
    • To further this goal, save Tempest Level2.png Updraft for when you run out of mana.
  • Unlike other classes, the majority of Tempest's damage comes from your secondary gauntlet. Choose wisely.
    • Wind Shears can deal high consistent damage, but only at higher rarities and at close range.
  • Wind Shears can be used defensively to deflect fireballs, boulders and even Toxic Clouds.
  • The Tornado is immensely disruptive to other classes, due to its wide variety of Elemental Interactions.

Playing Against Tempest

  • Tempests can be slippery, but it requires them to fire Wind Shears at the ground rather than at you.
  • Tempests cannot change direction as fast in the air as they can on the ground.
    • They're therefore vulnerable to being sniped by high speed projectiles such as Ice Lance or Lightning bolt.
  • Use their Tornado against them by mixing it with other elements to their detriment.
  • Wind Shears' damage falls off drastically with distance, meaning their options for DPS is limited at long range.
  • Tempest's mobility is largely only vertical and defensive in nature. They cannot use it to chase after you.
    • Exploit this weakness by initiating or fleeing a fight after a quick trade using your own class mobility.
  • Limit their use of Tempest Level1.png Wind Surge and other skills by taking fights into tight spaces and castles.
