- Hold down the key assigned to the Spell Memory ability.
- Make sure you have staff equipped.

Spells take a while to cast and require the use of the Magic wand. This item is the mage’s primary weapon, but is the cleric’s second weapon. If you don’t have it equipped, you can’t cast spells. Make sure you have read the spell effects correctly and aim at your target.
One thing to keep in mind is that your Knowledge limit spells. This can be seen in the Spell tab of the Class tab. Each spell has an amount of lore associated with it, so you’ll need to balance this when building your spellbook. A number in the corner of each spell represents this number. However, you can equip more spells than you have Knowledge, as you can find Knowledge while exploring, which will then unlock those additional spells.
