Spell Creation Rules



Spells are the manifestation of different types of magic in specific ways. Here on Divinity Quest we encourage you to be as creative as possible when registering new spells. However there are a few rules to follow when creating a new spell. Each spell must have a corresponding magic type and follow specific rules laid down by that type of magic. For example a spell within the Nature Magic type can not bend time and space to create portals used for teleportation. Instead it would have an effect based on the laws of Nature Magic, ie using trees, plants, flowers etc. There are seven different spell categories. These categories are: Supplemental, Instant Healing, Healing Over Time, Defensive, Attack, Damage Over Time and Status Effect. Spells also have a sort of 'ranking' system based on the allowable power a spell can produce. This is done by sorting the spell into levels from 1, 5, 10, 15, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50. You are only allowed more powerful spells every 5 levels. Keep in mind the power of your spells scales using your Intellect stat. A fireball at level one would have a damage rating of 8 while the same fireball, if made into a level 30 spell, would have a base damage rating of 56. This is of course before the buff from your Intellect stat comes into play. Below are a few different tables showing the allowable amounts for each spell type and level.

Each level of spell requires a corresponding amount of mana in order to use. Your character must also be at the corresponding level to use that spell. For example a character of level 5 can use level 5 and level 1 spells but cannot use level 10 spells or higher. The mana cost for each level of spell is as follows:

Level 1: 10 mana to cast
Level 5: 20 mana to cast
Level 10: 30 mana to cast
Level 15: 40 mana to cast
Level 20: 50 mana to cast
Level 25: 60 mana to cast
Level 30: 70 mana to cast


Learning Spells



Here on Divinity Quest there are 3 ways to acquire spells. The first way is to simply create a character. Upon creation, every character is allowed to choose their first Magic type and can have 2 spells from that type. This means that if you create a character and choose Space-Time as your first Magic type you are allowed 2 Space-Time spells upon approval of your character. The second way to learn spells is to train them. There is a base wordcount for training each level of spell. The table for this can be found below. The third and final way you can acquire spells is by leveling up. You are allowed a certain number of spells upon reaching a new level. You can find more details on this, explaining just how many spells you get for each level, in the Level Up Rewards section of the rules.


Level 1: 200 wc
Level 5: 1,000 wc
Level 10: 2,000 wc
Level 15: 3,000 wc
Level 20: 4,000 wc
Level 25: 5,000 wc
Level 30: 6,000 wc

Spell Type: What type of spell it is, Heal Over Time, Attack, Supplemental etc.

Spell Level: The level of the spell.

Spell AoE: Area of Effect or range of the spell.
Spell Cooldown: Post cooldown after use.
