Final Thoughts Skyrim has easily become one of the most talked-about games of the current generation, with the influence of the epic open-world action-adventure game still continuing to be felt until today — 7 years after it was first released back in In Skyrim, you can role play to become whoever you want. In fact, there are mods that lets you play like the average citizen, unaffected by the main quest storyline that involves being the Dragonborn, destined to do battle against Alduin and save the world from destruction. Being a mage in Skyrim is fun and quite entertaining. You can go full-on magic and specialize in one skill tree. Or, you can also be a jack-of-all trades and learn to do everything.

Gameplay[ edit ] Magicka is an action-adventure game played in a 3D environment from an isometric perspective. A single player or up to four simultaneous cooperative players take on the roles of wizards tasked with stopping an evil sorcerer that has thrown the world into a state of turmoil. The main adventure campaign consists of 13 levels. Similarly there is no " mana bar ", or energy meter that limits the use of special abilities, and with the exception of certain "Magicks", players are able to access the most powerful spells right from the beginning of the game.
Magic spells can be cast without limit and do not require the consumption of any finite resource; power limitatations are purely based on whether players know the combination and can conjure up elements quickly enough.
However, time to cast the spell is very limited: if the player does it too slowly, they will die. Spells and elements[ edit ] The game contains eight base elements water, life, shield, cold, lightning, arcane, earth and fire which can be mixed and combined to cast spells.
Up to five elements can be chained together for this purpose, but certain elements cannot be combined together due to their opposing nature for instance, fire and cold. Additionally, two other elements can be created by mixing two base elements: steam water and fire and ice water and cold ; these behave like base elements, that gives players access to ten elements to cast spells from. Four players attack goblins in the co-op campaign, casting a mix of Arcane spells. When casting a spell composed of multiple elements, there is a set hierarchy which determines the type of the spell cast.
Shields take precedence over projectiles earth and ice , which take precedence over beams life and arcane , which take precedence over steam, which takes precedence over lightning, which takes precedence over sprays water, fire and cold. For example, a spell consisting of pure fire would be a spray of flame. A spell of fire and earth would be a fireball projectile. A spell of fire and arcane would create a flaming beam.
A spell of fire, arcane and earth would create a flaming, arcane rock projectile. A spell of fire, arcane, earth, and shield would result in a flaming arcane rock barrier. The order in which the component elements of a spell are summoned has no effect on the type or power of the spell, and does not matter, except when attempting to cast a "Magick" as opposed to a regular spell. All elements tend to cause damage, except Life, which heals this is reversed for Undead enemies where Arcane heals them and Life damages them , and Shield, which creates barriers.
This can also affect what spell is cast; for instance casting shield and arcane as an area of effect will create a circle of arcane mines around the caster; however, casting it on oneself will instead cause the caster to have an arcane invulnerability aura.
To cast a spell, the player first sequentially presses the associated buttons for the desired elements for example: q, w, e, r, a, s, d, and f, respectively, when playing using a QWERTY PC keyboard in order to "gather" them, which show up as icons on the screen as they are pressed.
The player then chooses one of the four ways to cast the spell using different mouse buttons. A physics system is included in the game: explosions can send players and monsters flying across the screen, wizards can use spray spells to push or knock back targets, etc.
Magicks[ edit ] Special spells called "Magicks" require specific combinations and produce unique effects, and also require the acquisition of the corresponding Spellbook in order to become available to the player.
Spellbooks are placed throughout the campaign levels, but are also dropped by " Sapient Pearwood Luggage " a low level enemy that resembles a chest in Challenge and Versus PvP modes. Examples include "Haste", which temporarily allows the player to move faster, "Teleport", which instantaneously transports the player to a location of his or her choice, and "Time Warp", which slows down time.
To cast a Magick, the player must "follow the recipe" by conjuring the appropriate elements of the Magick in the correct order. Items[ edit ] Though not the primary method of combat, players will always have a weapon in their left hand and a staff in their right. Weapons vary from regular swords with no special effects, to a magical mace that sets enemies ablaze with fire, to an M60 light machine-gun.
Staves usually have some magical effect which can either be passive "always-on" abilities such as an aura that heals nearby players or active abilities which have a cooldown time and are used by clicking the Middle Mouse Button for instance one staff summons a friendly tree monster, and another causes surrounding enemies to run away in terror.

The hood is fixed to the robes and cannot be removed, thus only circlets and masks can be worn on the head while wearing these robes. These are the highest all-around enchantments available for magic-oriented characters. Regular enchanted robes or armor do not possess the magnitude of these attributes, nor do they equal the combined enchantments it provides. However, each individual enchantment on the robes are out-ranked by expert and master robes for those specialized in one school of magic e. Master Robes of Destruction. The enchantment from the robes is called "Skein of Magnus" in the Creation Kit , but the robes in the game cannot be disenchanted.
Equipment Uniting with the Gamepedia Magicka community! For those who have not yet heard: Last year, Gamepedia and Fandom joined forces and are now two platforms on the same network. The teams at both Gamepedia and Fandom want to encourage our communities to work together now instead of splitting their efforts and competing with each other for readers and new editors. That would mean we archive one wiki - lock it from editing but keep the pages accessible to readers - and put a banner up that directs visitors towards the other, active wiki. The advantages of becoming one community working together are clear: By working together, all fans of Magicka could build a resource on the game more effectively, keep it up-to-date more easily, and players would no longer be confused as to which site they should turn to for information.
