Magic
Icon In-Game Description
Magic Defense Icon Defense against and absorption of magic damage. Defense is calculated by character attributes, and absorption is the combined value of all equipped armor and additional effects.

Overview

Magic is a type of damage that players and enemies are affected by. Damage types vary between enemy attack and weapon type, and some attack types are more effective against some enemies and armor than others.

Defense for enemies and players is divided into "Defense" and "Absorption". Absorption for Magic attacks can be increased with Equipment (such as Armor or Rings) or Buffs (such as Consumables or Spells), while Defense for Magic attacks can be increased with Level, Intelligence, and by having armor slots filled.
