How many skills and spells does Darkfall have?
There are hundreds of skills and spells with more added all the time. The reason for this is that we want to make combat, spell casting, trading, and item creation as interesting as possible. Our goal is to promote more variety in combat and allow for a large number of possible combinations to be used in offense and in defense, rather than the same predictable routines used over and over.

How do I get new skills and spells?
Most spells and skills can be purchased from NPCs, and they will teach you the basics of the particular skill or spell, so you can start using it and training it. NPCs may ask you to help them perform certain quests before they are willing to teach you special spells and skills.

What is the spell system like?
Spells are divided into several different schools of magic: Lesser Magic, Greater Magic, Element of Fire, Element of Earth, Element of Water, Element of Air, Witchcraft, Spell Chanting and Necromancy. In addition there are some special spells that do not fit directly into any school of magic, such as racial specialty spells.

Do you have skill caps?
Yes, skills start at one and cap at 100.

So I can learn any spell or skill?
Some skills and spells are race specific, meaning you cannot learn them unless you are of the appropriate race.

Can I cast spells while wearing armor?
Yes, however, your casting time will increase significantly if you are wearing heavy armor. Casting time could be tripled between wearing a robe and heavy armor. The power of the spell can also be negatively affected when casting while wearing armor.
