Spells are cast by drawing symbols on the Rune Layer. To access it, drag the double-arrow button in the top-middle of the screen down. All symbols can be drawn in either direction. Many of the spells summon magical structures to secure and control locations.

War Chant of Light

Attack Spell

With this attack spell, you can capture spirits, banish enemy mages, or banish enemy structures, by reducing the target's hit points to 0.

The Rune is a "Z". (Z = →↙→ or ←↗←)

Summon WardEdit

Area guardian

Wards guard areas against enemy mages when a spell is cast.

Harvest a Dominator for energy

Harvesting Dominators gathers Energy for your team. Energy is needed to win campiagns and earn medals.

You can only harvest your own Dominators, and only when they are full. A full Dominator is indicated by a red circle around the base, and when selected, the blue progress bar will be full. Your own Dominators are also indicated by four arrows revolving around them. You gain 25XP and some energy by harvesting. It takes approximately 35 mins for a Dominator to fully charge.

Warps to a targeted location

Warp allows you to jump between targets controlled by your faction (players, structures, or gateways). Together with other players, you can use this spell to repeatedly move together to a location where none of you is physically located in the world. This process is nicknamed Leapfrogging.
