Spells & Sorceries

Fireball Spell

One of the core aspects of combat in Spellbreak is the ability to cast Spells & Sorceries.

By default without any Gauntlet equipped, players only have access to a weak arcane spell that does 10 damage.

Gauntlets of different elements may be equipped in both the left (primary) and right (secondary) hand respectively.

The Gauntlets' imbued elements dictate which Spells & Sorceries the player has access to.

Players start the match with a Common Gauntlet in their primary hand, whose element will correspond to their chosen Class.

The primary Gauntlet can only be upgraded in rarity, unlike the secondary one which may be swapped out freely.

Spells have no cooldown, but require mana to be cast. The more powerful Sorceries do have a cooldown, but don't require mana to be cast.

Elements combine with eachother in various unique ways, for more info see Elemental Interactions.

Gauntlet Mechanics[edit | edit source]

There are a number of mechanics surrounding Gauntlets and their use, most being universal across all Gauntlets, but a few are also tied to their respective Classes.

Gauntlets along with other equipment can be found throughout the Hollow Lands, but higher rarity versions are only found in Gauntlet Chest.png Chests, with Legendary versions being limited to Mana Vault.png Mana Vaults.

Players may only swap out their secondary Gauntlet. The Spellslinger.png Spellslinger Talent unlocks the ability to do so through the hotbar. Gauntlet swapping resets Sorcery cooldowns.

Aiming a Sorcery while airborne will cause a player to hover, but only up to 3 times or for 5 seconds total until they touch the ground.

Players start out with a base max mana of 50, which may be increased by equipping an Amulet.

This will limit the amount of Spells they can cast in quick succession. They also cannot cast Spells while levitating.

Once a player has depleted all their mana, they are locked out from casting Spells and levitating until they fully recharge it over 1 second.

However, they're free to perform actions which don't require mana, such as using Runes or casting Sorceries.

Each Gauntlet's main Spell has a different cast time and fire rate.

The fire rate determines how quickly they can cast another spell or start mana recharging after firing.

The Common Frost Gauntlet.png Frost Gauntlet also has an additional mana recharging delay of 1 second.

Casting Spells while in the air prevents acceleration and applies a small amount of friction.

Spell Damage modifiers, as the name suggests, amplifies the base damage of Spells. Stacks additively.

Projectiles can collide with both opponents and teammates alike. However, only damage and Status Effects the caster is capable of self-inflicting, can afflict their teammates.

Due to how the game calculates the trajectory of projectiles with respect to the crosshair, there is a special rule in place for very fast projectiles:

"For targets closer than 10 meters, the Ice Lance and Lightning Bolt projectiles will only hit them if the player's crosshair was aimed directly at their hitbox upon firing."

This means that projectiles will always miss or pass through the target if the crosshair wasn't aimed directly at them. The rule doesn't apply for distances above 10 meters, nor for other Spells.

Elemental Interactions[edit | edit source]

The following table lists all elemental interactions between Spells & Sorceries. Mouseover keywords to read their effects.

All the elemental interactions listed are universal. This means that anyone can affect and interact with the elements the same regardless of who they originated from.

Ice

[Ice Lance]

Flash Freeze refreezes water puddles into Ice Puddles.
Freezing a player by any means grants them freeze immunity for 5 seconds.

Ice Lance shots can collide with oneanother.

Lightning Strike electrifies water, Steam Puddles, Ice Puddles and blocks of ice, shocking nearby players. The Flamewall cannot be spawned inside Flash Freeze.

Each part of the wall and Flame Puddles can block one Ice Lance shot before being extinguished. Similarly, Ice Lance also extinguishes Fireballs, melting in the process.

Toxic Cloud turns into a big block of ice upon getting hit by Ice Lance or landing in the Flash Freeze zone. If a player is caught inside the cloud as this happens, it rids of the cloud and creates an Ice Mist instead. Boulderfall will freeze solid upon blocking Ice Lance shots or by traveling into a Flash Freeze zone, making it create an Ice Mist on impact.

Boulderfall can also create them by shattering Ice Puddles and ice blocks.

The Tornado's gravity affects the trajectory of Ice Lance shots heavily.

It also removes water puddles, Ice Puddles and Ice Mists in its radius.

Lightning

[Lightning Bolt]

Lightning Bolts electrify Ice Puddles and water puddles on contact with the puddle or a player standing on one.

Hitting Steam Puddles or small blocks of ice electrifies a radius around them, shocking nearby players. The bolts can block Ice Lance.

The edge of Flash Freeze blocks Lightning Bolts.

Shocking a player by any means grants them shock immunity for 5 seconds. Lightning Bolt passes through the Flamewall. Lightning Bolt is blocked by and electrifies Toxic Cloud, including the projectile mid-flight, shocking nearby players in a 10 m radius and extending its duration by 5 seconds.

It also electrifies Toxic Puddles on contact with them directly or a player standing on one.

Boulderfall can block Lightning Bolts. The Tornado's gravity doesn't affect the trajectory of Lightning Bolts.

If hit directly it absorbs them, electrifying the Tornado and shocking anyone inside its vortex.

If hit directly it absorbs them, and electrifies into a Lightning Tornado.

Fire

[Fireball]

Fireballs turn Ice Puddles into Steam Puddles on direct contact with the puddle or a player standing on one. They can also break ice blocks.

The Flamewall and Fireball extinguish upon hitting these puddles directly.

Flash Freeze extinguishes all ground fires and turns Steam Puddles into small ice blocks. If a player is caught inside the steam it turns into Ice Mist instead.

The edge of the zone blocks Fireballs.

Using Lightning Strike near a Flamewall will redirect the lightning to it. Fireball passes through the Flame Puddles and the Flamewall.

Fireballs can collide with oneanother.

On contact with fire Toxic Cloud ignites into a large explosion of Dragonfire that deals 2 ticks of 20 damage. The explosion clears fires.

Firing the projectile through fire will ignite it upon landing.

Fireball will also turn Toxic Puddles into Dragonfire on contact with the puddle or a player standing on one. The fire will spread to other connected Toxic Puddles nearby.

Boulderfall can be set ablaze, leaving a large Flame Puddle on the ground. The Tornado's gravity affects the trajectory of Fireballs heavily.

If hit directly it absorbs them, turning into a Fire Tornado that continually applies Ignite.

If hit directly it absorbs them, and ignites into a Fire Tornado.

If toxified, the Tornado explodes vertically.

Toxic

[Toxic Spray]

Toxic Spray turns Ice Puddles and water puddles into Toxic Puddles on contact with the puddle or a player standing on one.

Steam Puddles turn into small Toxic Clouds instead. Streams can also block Ice Lance.

Flash Freeze turns Toxic Puddles into unharmful Toxic Ice Puddles, which can be ignited into a large Dragonfire.

Toxic Spray streams pass through the zone, but freeze into icicles that now interact as ice projectiles.

Toxic Spray carries electricity to its puddles if fired through lightning, shocking players that touch them. The projectiles can also block Lightning Bolts.

Lightning Strike electrifies Toxic Puddles and Toxic Clouds, shocking nearby players in a 10 m radius.

Flame Puddles and the Flamewall can block an unlimited amount of Toxic Spray shots, turning into Dragonfire.

Toxic Spray is blocked by Fireballs.

Toxic Spray passes through Toxic Clouds. Boulderfall can block Toxic Spray and collide with the Toxic Cloud projectile.

Removes Toxic Puddles on impact.

The Tornado's gravity affects the trajectory of Toxic Spray heavily.

It dissipates the Toxic Cloud projectile, as well as any Toxic Mists, puddles or clouds in its radius.

Toxifying the Tornado turns it into a Toxic Whirlwind, dealing toxic damage near the ground.

If toxified, it turns into a Toxic Whirlwind.

If ignited, the Tornado explodes vertically.

Stone

[Shockwave]

Shockwave smashes Ice Puddles and blocks, creating Ice Mists in their place. Also removes water puddles, but not Steam Puddles. With perfect timing, Lightning Strike can stop Shockwave in its tracks. Shockwave passes through fire, leaving a Fire Trail behind along its path.

Shockwave can block Fireballs.

Shockwave removes Toxic Puddles from the ground, but not Toxic Clouds. Both Shockwaves & Boulders can collide with oneanother. The Tornado's gravity affects the trajectory of Boulderfall heavily, but not the Shockwave.
Wind

[Wind Shear]

Wind Shear shatters Ice Puddles on contact with the puddle or a player standing on one, creating Ice Mists in their place. Also removes water and Steam Puddles, but doesn't affect ice blocks.

The edge of Flash Freeze blocks Wind Shears.

Wind Shear carries electricity if fired through lightning, shocking players on impact.

Lightning Strike will hit a player no matter how high up in the air they are.

Wind Shear passes through and extinguishes an unlimited amount of Flame Puddles and parts of the Flamewall.

Wind Shears are blocked by Fireballs, but alter their trajectory slightly in the process.

Wind Shear can affect the Toxic Cloud projectile's trajectory.

Wind Shear will also completely dissipate the cloud after five hits, or immediately if the projectile lands on it.

Wind Shear creates a Toxic Mist on impact if fired through toxic, as well as on contact with a Toxic Puddle or a player standing on one.

Boulderfall can block Wind Shear, causing it to either lose or gain momentum, allowing it to be pushed further than usual. The Tornado's gravity affects the trajectory of Wind Shears slightly. Wind Shears can collide with oneanother.
