Ice Lance & Toxic Spray Spells

One of the core aspects of combat in Spellbreak is the ability to cast Spells & Sorceries.

Gauntlets of different elements may be equipped in both the left (primary) and right (secondary) hand respectively.

The Gauntlets' imbued elements dictate which Spells & Sorceries the player has access to.

Without a Gauntlet equipped, they can only fire a weak arcane spell which deals 10 damage.

Players start the match with a Common Gauntlet in their primary hand, whose element will correspond to their chosen Class.

This primary Gauntlet can only be upgraded in rarity, unlike the offhand one which may be swapped out freely.

Spells have no cooldown, but require mana to be cast. The more powerful Sorceries do have a cooldown, but don't require mana to cast.

Elements combine with eachother in various unique ways, for more info see Elemental Interactions.

Gauntlet Mechanics

There are a number of mechanics tied to specific Gauntlets and their corresponding Classes, but this section will only cover the universal ones.

Gauntlets along with other equipment are found throughout the Hollow Lands.

However, higher rarity loot is only found in Gauntlet Chest New.png Chests, with Legendary rarity being limited to Mana Vault New.png Mana Vaults.

The Spellslinger.png Spellslinger Talent unlocks the ability to store and swap Gauntlets through the hotbar. Gauntlet swapping resets Sorcery cooldowns.

Players start out with a base max mana of 50, which may be increased by equipping an Amulet.

This will limit the amount of Spells they can cast in quick succession. They also cannot cast Spells while levitating.

Once a player has depleted all their mana, they are locked out from casting Spells and levitating until they fully recharge it over 1 second.

However, they're free to perform actions which don't require mana, such as using Runes or casting Sorceries.

Aiming a Sorcery or Ice Lance.png Ice Lance while airborne will cause a player to hover, greatly reducing the effect of gravity. May be cancelled with a Spell-input.

Casting Spells while airborne prevents acceleration and applies a small amount of friction.

Each Gauntlet's main Spell has a different cast time and recovery time, both collectively referred to as Cast Speed. This was increased substaintially in Chapter 2.

Cast time denotes the duration of the cast animation, whilst recovery time denotes when they can begin casting another spell or mana recharging after firing.

Some gauntlets also have a mana recharging delay that is added on top of their recovery time.

The Frost Gauntlet.png Frost Gauntlet and Lightning Gauntlet.png Lightning Gauntlet each have an additional mana recharging delay of 0.5 s & 0.57 s respectively.

Using Tempest Level1.png Wind Surge also adds a mana recharge delay of 0.95 s. For more info check out the DPS Spreadsheet.

Spell Damage modifiers, as the name suggests, amplifies the damage of Spells. Stacks additively. (Base * Total Spell Damage %)

Projectiles can collide with both opponents and squadmates alike.

However, only damage and Status Effects the caster is capable of self-inflicting, can afflict their squadmates.

Finally, there is a special rule in place for very fast projectiles due to how the game calculates their trajectories:

"For targets closer than 10 meters, the Ice Lance and Lightning Bolt projectiles
will only hit if the player's crosshair was aimed directly at their hitbox upon firing."

The rule doesn't apply for distances above 10 meters, nor for other Spells.

Elemental Interactions

The following table lists all elemental interactions between Spells & Sorceries. Mouseover keywords to read their effects.

All the elemental interactions listed are universal. This means that everyone can combo and interact with the elements the same regardless of who they originated from.

Ice Lance.png

Ice Lance

Flash Freeze refreezes water puddles into Ice Puddles.
Frozen players gain freeze immunity for 5 seconds.

Ice Lance shots can collide with each other.

Lightning Strike electrifies water, Steam Puddles, Ice Puddles and blocks of ice, shocking nearby players.

The Flamewall cannot be spawned inside Flash Freeze. Each part of the wall and Flame Puddles can block one Ice Lance shot before being extinguished. Similarly, Ice Lance also extinguishes Fireballs, melting in the process.

Toxic Cloud freezes into a block of ice upon getting hit by Ice Lance or landing inside Flash Freeze.

If a player is caught inside the cloud as it freezes, it turns into Ice Mist instead.

Boulderfall will freeze solid upon blocking Ice Lance shots or by traveling into a Flash Freeze zone, creating Ice Mist on impact.

It can also create the mist by shattering Ice Puddles and ice blocks.

The Tornado's gravity affects the trajectory of Ice Lance shots heavily.

Removes water puddles, Ice Puddles and Ice Mists in its radius.

Lightning Bolt.png

Lightning Bolt

Lightning Bolts electrify Ice Puddles and water puddles on contact with the puddle or a player standing on one.

Hitting Steam Puddles or small blocks of ice electrifies a radius around them, shocking nearby players. The bolts can block Ice Lance.

The edge of Flash Freeze blocks Lightning Bolts.

Shocked players gain shock immunity for 5 seconds.

Lightning Bolt passes through the Flamewall.

Lightning Bolt is blocked by and electrifies Toxic Cloud for 2 seconds, shocking nearby players in a 10 m radius. The cloud can be electrified mid-flight.

Electrifies Toxic Puddles on contact with them directly or a player standing on one.

Boulderfall can block Lightning Bolts.

The Tornado's gravity doesn't affect the trajectory of Lightning Bolts.

If hit directly it absorbs them, electrifying the Tornado and shocking anyone near it.
If hit directly it absorbs them, and electrifies into a Lightning Tornado.
Fireball.png

Fireball

Fireballs turn Ice Puddles into Steam Puddles on direct contact with the puddle or a player standing on one. They can also break ice blocks. The Flamewall and Fireball extinguish upon hitting these puddles directly.

Flash Freeze extinguishes all ground fires and turns Steam Puddles into small ice blocks. If a player is caught inside the steam it turns into Ice Mist instead.

The edge of the zone blocks Fireballs.

Using Lightning Strike near a Flamewall will redirect the lightning to it.

Fireball passes through Flame Puddles and the Flamewall. Fireballs can collide with each other.

On contact with fire Toxic Cloud ignites into a large explosion of Dragonfire that deals deals 3 ticks of 16 damage over 0.66 s. The explosion clears fires.

Firing the projectile through fire will ignite it upon landing.

Fireball will also turn Toxic Puddles into Dragonfire on contact with the puddle or a player standing on one. The fire will spread to other connected Toxic Puddles nearby.

Boulderfall can be set ablaze, leaving a large Flame Puddle on the ground.

The Tornado's gravity affects the trajectory of Fireballs heavily.

If hit directly it absorbs them, turning into a Fire Tornado that deals 9 DPS and applies Ignite upon exiting.

If then toxified, the Tornado explodes vertically.

If hit directly it absorbs them, and ignites into a Fire Tornado.

If then toxified, the Tornado explodes vertically.
Toxic Spray.png

Toxic Spray

Toxic Spray turns Ice Puddles and water puddles into Toxic Puddles on contact with the puddle or a player standing on one. Steam Puddles turn into small Toxic Clouds instead.

Flash Freeze turns Toxic Puddles into unharmful Toxic Ice Puddles, which can be ignited into a large Dragonfire.

Toxic Spray streams pass through the zone, but freeze into icicles that now interact as ice projectiles.

Toxic Spray carries electricity to its puddles if fired through lightning, shocking players that touch them. The projectiles can also block Lightning Bolts.

Lightning Strike electrifies Toxic Puddles and Toxic Clouds, shocking nearby players in a 10 m radius.

Flame Puddles and the Flamewall can block an unlimited amount of Toxic Spray shots, turning into Dragonfire. Toxic Spray is blocked by Fireballs.

Toxic Spray passes through Toxic Clouds.

Boulderfall can block Toxic Spray and collide with the Toxic Cloud projectile. Removes Toxic Puddles on impact.

The Tornado's gravity affects the trajectory of Toxic Spray heavily. It dissipates the Toxic Cloud projectile, as well as any Toxic Mists, puddles or clouds in its radius.

Toxifying the Tornado turns it into a Toxic Tornado, dealing 9 DPS near the ground and applying Corrosion upon exiting.

If then ignited, the Tornado explodes vertically.

If toxified, it turns into a Toxic Tornado.

If then ignited, the Tornado explodes vertically.
Shockwave.png

Shockwave

Shockwave shatters Ice Puddles and blocks, creating Ice Mists in their place. Also removes water puddles, but not Steam Puddles.

With perfect timing, Lightning Strike can stop Shockwave in its tracks.

Shockwave passes through fire, leaving a Fire Trail behind along its path. Shockwave can block Fireballs.

Shockwave removes Toxic Puddles from the ground, and passes through Toxic Clouds.

Both Shockwaves & Boulders can collide with each other.

The Tornado's gravity affects the trajectory of Boulderfall heavily. Shockwave can block Wind Shears.

Wind Shear.png

Wind Shear

Wind Shear shatters Ice Puddles on contact with the puddle or a player standing on one, creating Ice Mists in their place. Also removes water and Steam Puddles, but doesn't affect ice blocks.

The edge of Flash Freeze blocks Wind Shears.

Wind Shear carries electricity if fired through lightning, shocking players on impact.

Lightning Strike will hit a player no matter how high up in the air they are.

Wind Shear passes through and extinguishes an unlimited amount of Flame Puddles and parts of the Flamewall.

Wind Shears are blocked by Fireballs, but alter their trajectory slightly in the process.

Wind Shear can affect Toxic Cloud's trajectory. Wind Shear will also completely dissipate the cloud over five hits.

if fired through toxic, Wind Shear will create a Toxic Mist on impact, as well as on contact with a Toxic Puddle or a player standing on one.

Boulderfall can block Wind Shear, causing it to either lose or gain momentum, allowing it to be pushed further than usual.

The Tornado's gravity affects the trajectory of Wind Shears slightly.

Wind Shears can collide with each other.
