Minegicka is a mod for Minecraft that adds Magicka-themed blocks and items to the game, as well as additional game mechanics consistent with the Magicka video game.
A spell is obtained by finding structures. The structures have a color that corresponds to the biome that they're in. Right-click the mysterious book in these structures to get a purple scroll, and then right-click the purple scroll to get a spell.
What you can do with Spells and how to use them?
Spells are used with wands. To craft a basic wand, you will need Magik Dust. When you kill a normal mob in Minecraft, there is a small chance to get one Magik Dust as a drop.
The Basic Wand looks like a flipped stick with a blue aura on top. Next, you have to make a spell book. To do this, use a crafting table; the slot in the middle-top will have to be a Magik Dust. On both sides of the dust, put a Feather. Put a Book in the middle slot, and Paper in all the bottom slots. On both sides of the book, put an Ender Pearl.
To cast a spell, first you need to obtain spells. The purple scrolls you get will give you a spell, magik, or an element upon right clicking them. If you have a Magik Book in your Hotbar, there will be a HUD on the bottom right of your screen; if you get an element, then one of those circles will turn into a color. This means you can use them for a spell now.
How to use Spells and Magiks
The HUD on the bottom right part of your screen, should have a letter next to the element circles. That is the letter you press on your keyboard to queue the spell. You can change this in the controls option in the Minecraft menu.
When you press one of those keys for the elements, one of those elements will pop up on the little bar of circles above the HUD. You can fill all the circles (5) with elements; the more circles filled, the more power your spell will have.
Once you have queued all the spells you want in your little circle bar, you can choose if you want the spells to be an Area Effect, or a Focused Effect. Area Effect spells will cast the spell over a wide area, while Focused Effect spells will only "shoot" or "spray" the spell in one direction, thus focusing the spell in one direction. To turn a spell into an Area Effect spell, press "R" on your keyboard. To turn a spell into a Focused Effect, press "F". Then, either right click once with your wand if it is an area, or hold right click if it is focused. This will cast the spell.
Finding and using Magiks
You get Magiks the same way you get elements; when you right click the purple scroll while you already have all the elements, you will learn a new Magik.
TO cast a spell, look up the one you want to cast, and then queue the exact elements that it shows you. For example, Haste requires you to queue Lightning, then Arcane, then Fire. Then, you click "F" on you keyboard, and it casts the magik as a Focused Effect spell.
Different types of Spells and Magiks
You can combine spells, just like how you combine elements to make Magiks.
First you need to know your elements: Water, Life, Shield, Snow, Lightning, Arcane, Earth, Fire, Steam, and Ice. You can also combine elements; if you first queue a water spell, then a snow spell, they will both disappear and leave an Ice element spell in its place. You can use tactic this for Area spells, Focus spells, and magiks. The same applies to Steam; to make steam, you first queue fire, then water.
In the Magik Book, there is a tab called "Magiks". Clicking this will show you the Magiks you have and the ones you don't have. You simply just queue the elements it tells you to, then press "F" on your keyboard.
Combining and Making New Spells
Certain spells can be combined to make new spells; there are over a thousand combinations. The basic combinations are shields and mines.
You can combine the Shield element with others to make mines and different kind of shields. For example, if you queue one shield, and then either an arcane or a life element, it will create four mines. When players walk mines, they will either be healed or hurt (depending on if you chose Life or Arcane, respectively). You can also use the other elements, but they don't create mines. They do, however, assist in creating big shields. These shields can protect you from any mob or player, but they're not usually powerful enough to kill anything besides mobs.
