Help Spell casting
Casting a spell:
cast 'spell' [target] [try very quick/quick/slow/very slow]
cast spell [at target] [try very quick/quick/slow/very slow]
cast mirror image at yaga / These two syntaxes
cast 'mirror image' yaga \ have the same effect
cast 'killing cloud' snake try very slow
cast 'magic missile' try very quick
cast 'teleport with error' / These two also have
cast teleport with error \ the same effect
When engaged in combat, if you do not specify a target for a spell, your
current attacker will be used by default.
To get a list of all spells currently in the game type 'all'.
To get help on a particular spell use:
help spell <spellname>
examples: help spell magic missile, help spell light
Your chance of successfully casting the spell depends on your knowledge
(percent) in that spell, int/wis, level and the speed you are trying to
cast the spell. Quicker spellcasting causes the spells fail more.
Spell damage depends on the spell, but is often modified by your int/wis
Each spell takes a certain amount of mana, or spell points. After a
player uses a spell he takes a certain amount of time to regenerate his
spell points. Each 'tick', which happens about once every minute, a
player receives a certain amount of hit points and spell points back,
depending on his items, race, and guilds.
For attack spells, damage type shows which type of damage is done.
Certain monsters may take less damage from some damage types. For
example, a Fire Giant may resist fire damage, while a an Ice Elemental
may resist cold damage. Each attack spell has a specific damage type.
The possible damage types are as follows: physical, fire, cold, psionic,
magical, poison, asphyxiation, acid and electric.
Each spell takes a certain amount of rounds to have effect once you have
begun concentrating on the spell (although, knowledge in the quick chant
skill has been known to speed things up a bit). You may perform most
actions without interrupting the spell, however, moving or interrupting
it with a new skill/spell will interfere with the casting. For each
round a spell takes all monsters and players in the room have a chance
to start casting a spell, get their attacks in, and flee.
To abort the casting of a spell, simply type 'cast stop'.
