Overview[edit | edit source]
Like previous game, there are 3 types of magic circles: Central, Booster, and Focus. There are also 5 types of Central Magic Circles, which determine the spell's element and strength: Common Offensive Magic, Flame, Thunder, Ice, and Healing.
A spell's strength is determined by its Effectiveness (base power) + Magic Power Reflection (% of MAG added to Effectiveness). This can be further affected by Booster Magic Circles, the spell slot it is equipped in, equipment effects, and the time of day.
All spells have an innate MP cost, which is affected by several factors: Booster Magic Circles, Focus Magic Circles, and the spell slot it's equipped in.
Spells can be set through the Magic Circle Combination menu (the big book) at Luna's homes. In order to unlock the menu, you need to craft 3-Circle Flame Pillar Magic.
Damage Formula[edit | edit source]
The full damage formula is as follows:
(Base Power + MAG Reflection * MAG) * [Booster Bonus] * Spell Slot * Equipment Bonus * Time of Day Bonus
A spell's listed Offensiveness and Mana Usage already include bonuses from spell slot and Booster/Focus Magic Circles, but have not calculated bonuses from weapons or nighttime.
- The yellow "(+number Boosted)" next to Offensiveness is already added into the white number to the left. Subtract the bonus to find the Power value (
[Base Power]+[MAG Reflection]×[MAG]).
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The 3 spell slots have the following effects:
- Primary Slot: Spell is 20% more effective
- Secondary Slot: Spell is 10% more effective, uses 10% less MP
- Sub Slot: Uses 20% less MP
- Luna gets a 30% boost to spell effectiveness during nighttime.
- In order to use a spell circle in multiple slots, the spell needs to be crafted multiple times.
Common Offensive Magic[edit | edit source]
Common Offensive Magic spells are non-elemental. There are only two spells of this type: one that Luna has at the start of the game, and another that can only be unlocked in post-game.

Flame Magic[edit | edit source]
Flame magic inflicts Burn damage (damage-over-time) proportional to Luna's MAG. It grows stronger the more you continue to use Flame magic, increasing by 10% with each hit until you reach 50%. The effect lasts up to 9 turns, and decreases in effectiveness every couple of turns until it reaches 0.

Thunder Magic[edit | edit source]
Thunder magic has the most base power of the different types of magic, but consumes the most MP in return. It leaves behind an electric field that lowers the target's physical and magical defense.

Ice Magic[edit | edit source]
Ice magic deals the least amount of damage of the different types of magic, but it also uses the least amount of MP and slows down the enemy by Freezing them. The amount that they are slowed down by increases as you use more Ice magic on them, until it reaches 60%.
Freeze can also be inflicted by Ice Hammer up to a 70% effectiveness cap.
