Elements are the foundation of every spell. Each spell consists of at least one element, but they can also be combined in any number of ways. Spell effects may be stacked to amplify their power, and some combinations of elements even produce additional effects. Certain elements are grouped under the same Element Type.
List of Elements
Each element can be "Queued Up" by pressing its key. Right clicking (by default) will cast the elements as a "spell" in their primary cast form (explained below). Up to 5 elements can be queued up at a time. Except for shield, each elements can be queued more than once to increase its effects.
Six elements are opposed to each other. Queuing their vertical counterpart will "dispel" (un-queue) the other. Shield and Earth will not do this. Queuing Fire with Ice will reduce it to Water. Queuing cold with Steam will reduce it to Water. Earth and Lightning are also counter and will "dispel" each other.
If Ice is queued and lightning is added, then fire can be queued to change the ice back to water. they can then be cast, but the water will not soak the target until after the casting, thus the lightning does not get increased damage. If any other element is queued after this, the two will cancel.
Element Primary Cast Types
Each element has a primary cast type. When mixed with other types one cast style will take president. Projectile will take president over all. beam will take president over spray/cone. Projectile Element>Beam Element>Spray Element
A Projectile is a primary cast type in the game Magicka. These elements have similar characteristics. They are also called solid elements. Spells containing projectile elements shoot concentrated projectiles (or, when mixed with shield, create a wall of earth or ice) in front of the caster.
A Elements is an Element Type in the game Magicka. These elements have similar characteristics. Spells containing beam elements and not containing projectile elements shoot a concetrated, straight beam of element (or, when mixed with shield, create a set of magic mines) in front of the caster when force-cast.
A Elements is an Element Type in the game Magicka. These elements have similar characteristics. Spells consisting of only spray elements create a conic-shaped stream of element (or, when mixed with shield, a storm of element) in front of the wizard when force-cast.
The shield will place a magic shield in an arch.
