Throw a fireball here, a lightning bolt there, and add a summoned daemon for good measure. Those who study the magical arts of Britannia may not be adept with a sword and shield, but few can surpass the power of Magery. Magery is used to cast various spells, such as Harm (which damages an opponents health), Cure (which removes the effect of Poison), and Bless (which provides increases to stats).
To begin using Magery, you must have a Spellbook with spells added to it, or use spell scrolls.
Magery depends on the use of Mana and Reagents in order to cast a variety spells. The effectiveness of the spell is determined by an individuals' Intelligence, as well as their Evaluating Intelligence skill. Since casting spells quickly drains mana, it is typical for mages to have Meditation.
There are various levels, or 'circles', of spells available to the mage. Higher-level spells require a higher skill level of Magery to cast, as well as larger amounts of mana and reagents.

Training Magery involves casting spells that, for your level, you're able to cast but not guaranteed to succeed on. The following represents a general guide, highlighting casting that will net gains, but not necessarily the optimal set of gains.
To train just Magery without Resist, pick spells that are buff type spells and cast them on yourself. To train Resist alongside, choose spells that cause damage and cast them on yourself, healing in between casts. It's recommended to train Magery/Resist while your Evaluating Intelligence is low to minimize damage to yourself.
When multiple people are casting on a single player with energy bolt, explosion, or flamestrike, there is a progressive chance that their spell will fail for a 1 second window. Each time a player casts one of these spells within the window the window duration will be reset and a cumulative 12.5% chance to fizzle will be added. After 1 second passes that the player has not been casted on the chance will return to 0.
