Archery

You can use Archery by equipping arrows and a bow. Better bows may do more damage. The only archery skill currently available is Disabling Shot. This will prevent your target from using their Parry ability.

Magic

There are multiple schools of magic. There are six forms of elemental magic, your two base lines (lesser and great magic), and two specialty forms of magic, Arcane and Necromancy. To cast a spell, you must first have a magic staff equipped. The higher rank the staff, the most powerful the spell will be. Also, the heavier your armor, the slower and weaker your spells will be. Additionally, you cannot cast spells under water.

Aside from some Lesser Magic spells, all spells in Darkfall require reagents to cast. If you want to use these spells, you will have to have the proper reagents in your inventory. There are six reagents: Ashe, Bone, Nacre, Mandrake, Resin, Sulfur. You find buy them from NPC merchants, on the auction house, through herbalism gather or from killing Monsters.

The magic system in Darkfall is complex and there are buffs, debuffs, damage and utility spells all contained within the various spell schools. Spells that do precise damage or wide spread damage. Other spells that blind people or knock them away. The more you cast spells on a monster target, the more it will level and the stronger it will be.

Transfering Stats in Darkfall

While adventuring in Darkfall, you will inevitably lose mana, health and stamina. To replenish these quickly, you can use your transfer spells. These three spells are of critical importance in managing your 3 stat pools and ensuring you can continue to fight.

There are 3 transfer spells for each stat. You can find them on your hotbar when you begin and in your spellbook under Lesser Magic. Each transfer becomes more efficient as the skill levels. Casting the spells will level them. They can also be leveled by using Spell Scrolls.

Usage

Transfers cost no reagents and are meant to be used often. Don't hesitate to transfer your stats around to replenish whatever you've lost! Put the spells on easy to reach locations on your hotbar or in your keybinds.


Healing Others in Darkfall

At some point, in your adventures, your companions will undoubtedly get hurt. The wise adventure will be prepared with their Heal Other spells. These spells are of critical importance for every playstyle to use and learn.

Heal Other spells in Darkfall are aimed spells. Meaning that in order to heal them, you have to hit them directly with the spell. Hitting them from the back will heal more than healing them from the front. Use your Heal other spells in rotation to heal up your target quickly. E.g. Heal Other>Sacrifice>Lay on Hands>Heal Other.

Movement Spells in Darkfall

One of the things that makes Darkfall so unique is that you can use spells to propel yourself or others around the map. These spells all have different mechanics and movement potential.
