Hi there!

I am very new to the game, still fighting orcs, kobolds and such in the plains. I haven't even ventured into a dungeon yet, i am still learning how to keep my party members alive.

This current group i have, seems to be staying alive, and i think i have caught on (a bit) to keep them that way for a while.

However, my Magus is not casting his Acid Bolt, or progressing at all, it seems. I have checked the spell usage in the combat settings and according to the default setting (i haven't tinkered here yet) he should be doing some casting. He isn't. Any suggestions?

Do you have the proper spell components? Does he have enough magic points?

I have oodles and oodles of spell components. Which ones are used for Acid Bolt? I will be sure to check that. And he also has plenty of MP, because he isn't casting anything at all.

Would his use of a missile weapon the early attack phase preclude him from casting a spell? Maybe that's what i'm doing wrong. Should i unequip his x-bow?

Thanks for your help Doug!

I pooled all my spell components, now my Mage is casting. Which component is used for Acid Bolt?

It tells you that somewhere. I haven't played in a year or more, so I'm not exactly sure where it says that.

Hi Casaubon
Go to Cast spell on the list on the left hand side .
You should see a list of what it cost to cast all your spells. Hermic Root + Moonlight Moss for Ice bolt.
The use of weapons + armour makes no difference for spell casting, so give all your people ranged weapons + armour.
If you need any other help post in the chat box on the right hand side or PM me Viking Raiders(24718)
It is a great game once you get Started, It just takes a little time :)

Thanks Viking!

I will be needing some help to upgrade my Mage's spell list. I need to figure out where to get the spells. I will look for you in the chat dialogue!
