• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

So you're a new or maybe even a pro player and want to gain (more) knowledge about Magicka?
This guide is what you're looking for!

It covers:
  • the controls & element system; basically what you can learn in the tutorial, but more detailed (the shield element has an own section!)
  • status effects; describes status and their effects (burning eg.)
  • the robes; equipment, traits and combat tips for most robes(the cyber robe has an own section!)
  • the magicks; a list of all magicks. With proper description also.
  • the spells; a list of good spells, what they do and how to use them
  • general combat tips; self-explaining
  • PvP combat; an introduction to PvP and advanced stuff
  • going mutliplayer; some explanation how to host online, what to do and what to avoid
  • PvP Game Modes; some information about the three "sub game modes" in PvP
Note: Almost everything in this guide has images and videos. It's way more than just plain text! ;)
Another note: The guide started off as PvP guide and Auron and me are both PvP players. So expect the content to be influenced by PvP aspects.

A modpack me and Auron Darkmoon made. Special thanks to Netriak and Dikharz.
It adds about 20 PvP maps and one challenge map.
The PvP maps are areas from adventure and challenge 'ported' to PvP. No brand-new content.

Thank you for all, purple wizard!!

.. Well, I don't really need the guide because I'm honestly an "expert" of Magicka, but it's very useful for new and not-new players!
Thanks! Nice work!

Very detailed and informative guide. Should be stickied.

Performance Enhancement is clear to me now. But I still don't know what Spray of Judgement does.

But you should edit the title. It's misleading.

Yaah, I was (and still am) a bit sloppy with the magicks. I guess I'll put a little .GIF there with a short description. Thanks for reminding me.

What title do you mean? This threa'd title or the guide's?
(I find both appropriate :p)


Oh and don't forget Auron Darkmoon. Without him there wouldn't be a PvP Guide or Robes section. He also added some details here an there.

I feel honored! :3

Now that this is stickied and apparently not for shameless self advertising anymore, I'll turn it into an actual compilation of useful information...with...magick!

Thanks for pinning.

Hi, I'm not exactly new but have started playing Magicka again and now with controllers, which is a gamechanger both because now I can couchplay with my kids and the mapping of the controllers are amazing!

Now my 6 and 7 year old are trying all the robes, they see that some of them are locked and when I try to buy them nothing happens.
How can I get these culture robes and robe bundles.

I've bought this game multiple times to give to friends and family so we can play together, I've even got a spare one to give on steam still. I've always bought the bundle or collection types to have as many herbs and spices to play with. Now that I see but cannot get these extra robes in the "Store" my boys are giving me a lot of grief.

Help me please to get them. If the store is shut down, just unlock them for us then, please, please, please, with cherry on top.
