Introduction

 
SOLASTA Crown of the Magister Solasta Complete Guide - Introduction 
 
Welcome to my guide for Solasta: Crown of the Magister! For a first creation by a new studio, the team at Tactical Adventures really did well. This is a pretty faithful rendering of fifth edition Dungeons and Dragons rules into a video game format. They used a mixture of a unique setting, some homebrew content and the contents of the System Reference Document by Wizards of the Coast to translate 5th edition into a form that is easily accessible. 
 
The purpose of this guide is to help break down the main campaign into main and side missions with steps on how to prepare. I also want to discuss the six factions in the game and how to choose which ones to increase favor with. Character creation is discussed, as are the spell options for casters. 
 
Notes: A few notes to make – I do not have specific locations of all items, recipes, etc. I will mention specific shops that are useful for getting recipes, ingredients, and so on, but I will not have an exhaustive list of the location of every single useful thing. 
 
Additionally, while it is currently not released at the time of writing this guide, the Sorcerer class is a planned free DLC release, and will add the Sorcerer, a charisma based spellcaster to the class options. I will update the guide with that information once it is available. 
 
Finally, I do intend to add a bestiary to the end of the guide, before the achievements list, but it is still a work in progress as I complete the in-game bestiary information. 
 
With all that said, happy reading! I hope you find this guide useful. 
 
 

Attributes, Skills, and Modifiers

 
This section of the guide is to take a look at each of the attributes and skills you will encounter during character creation, what they mean, and how they work in the game. This will include a look at the numbers, but also a general explanation of what you should consider when looking at each thing. 
 

Attributes

 

 
Solasta has six attributes, each affecting different things. Below is a list of each ability score and the things they directly affect.

  • Athletics skill

  • Climbing and falling max distance 
  • Attack and Damage modifiers for certain weapon attacks

  • Dexterity saving throws

Constitution: 

  • Additional hit points per level (increasing Constitution does retroactively add hit points) 
  • Constitution saving throws

  • Charisma saving throws

 

Skills

 

 
There are a total of 18 skills. Every skill starts at zero, and adds the modifier from the related ability score. Then, at character creation, you gain proficiency with some skills, which adds your proficiency bonus to those skills. Rogues gain expertise, which adds double their proficiency bonus to chosen skills as well. The tables below can be used to help calculate the total bonus to each skill. 
 

  • Athletics: Strength related skill. Athletics affect success when grappling, climbing and jumping long distances.

 

  • Acrobatics: Dexterity related skill. Acrobatics affect success when escaping a grapple, climbing and jumping long distances, and falling without taking damage or going prone. 
  • Sleight of Hand: Dexterity related skill. Sleight of Hand is not utilized in the main campaign of Solasta. 
  • Stealth: Dexterity related skill. Stealth affects success when hiding and remaining hidden after attacking while hidden.

 

  • Arcana: Intelligence related skill. Arcana affects success with scribing scrolls, crafting certain potions, enchanting items, identifying hostile spells as they are being cast, and success copying wizard spells into their spellbook from spell scrolls or other spellbooks. 
  • History: Intelligence related skill. History affects success on certain checks to recall information related to the history of the world of Solasta (situational chances at extra party XP). 
  • Investigation: Intelligence related skill. Investigation is not utilized in the main campaign of Solasta. 
  • Nature: Intelligence related skill. Nature affects success with crafting certain poisons, and recalling information about certain regions, natural phenomena and locations in the world of Solasta (situational chances at extra party XP). 
  • Religion: Intelligence related skill. Religion affects success on certain checks to recall information about religions and religious history in the world of Solasta (situational chances at extra party XP).

 

  • Animal Handling: Wisdom related skill. Animal Handling is not utilized in the main campaign of Solasta. 
  • Insight: Wisdom related skill. Insight affects success in conversation trees at discerning success chances of different conversation options. Failure at an Insight check means conversation options have hidden success chances. 
  • Medicine: Wisdom related skill. Medicine affects success with crafting certain potions and poisons, and stabilizing allies who have been reduced to zero hit points and are making death saves. 
  • Perception: Wisdom related skill. Perception affects success seeing hidden enemies, finding traps, and seeing hidden doors. 
  • Survival: Wisdom related skill. Survival affects success foraging for food while traveling, finding entrances to new areas, and adding new information about enemies to the bestiary after a fight.

 

  • Deception: Charisma related skill. Deception affects success during conversation with deceptive conversation options. 
  • Intimidation: Charisma related skill. Intimidation affects success during conversation with intimidating conversation options. 
  • Performance: Charisma related skill. Performance is not utilized in the main campaign of Solasta. 
  • Persuasion: Charisma related skill. Persuasion affects success during conversation with persuasive conversation options.

 

Modifier Tables

 

 
Below, I have added a couple of tables to show the progression of your proficiency bonus at each level, and the modifier given by each ability score to its affected things. So, if you have a wisdom score of 15, you add the +2 modifier to each related skill: animal handling, insight, perception, medicine and survival, as well as increasing the wisdom saving throws by +2. It also affects any cleric or ranger spellcasting. Spellcasting will be covered in more detail at each class’s explanation later. 
 
To expand on the above example, if you are proficient in perception, and your character is level 5, you would add your proficiency bonus of +3 to perception as well, ending with a perception skill that adds +5 to every roll. If your character is also proficient with wisdom saving throws, the same holds true there – +2 from the wisdom modifier, and +3 from the proficiency bonus, ending with a wisdom saving throw of +5 each time it gets rolled. 
 
Here is a practical example of the mechanics behind a skill check. Let’s say you need to roll a perception check to find a secret door. The secret door has a difficulty check of 15 (written as DC15 in-game). This means you need to roll a 15 or higher to see the secret door and succeed the check. You will see that your character automatically rolls a d20, getting a number between 1 and 20. Let’s say your d20 roll is 11. 11 is not high enough to see the secret door… but in the example above, you would add +2 for your wisdom modifier and +3 for your proficiency bonus, ending with a perception check of 16, which is higher than the difficulty check of 15. Your character would then succeed at seeing the secret door.

Races, Backgrounds and Classes

 

Race Options

 
 
Race Options: In Solasta, there are five races to choose from, with Elves, Halflings and Dwarves all having two sub-race variants. Below, I will list the benefits of each option. 
 
It is important to note here that Humans and Island Halflings are the only race options that do not have darkvision. Darkvision allows you to operate normally in unlit areas, so if you make a human or island halfling, be prepared to need light sources or magic items that grant darkvision, or be at disadvantage during half of the fights in the game.

Classes:

 

 
In the following sections, I will put a quick bullet-point list of what each class and subclass gets at character creation and at each level up to the current in-game level max, level 10. Keep in mind at character creation that you cannot currently multi-class, meaning that if you pick a class and subclass, that’s what you have all the way to the end of the game on that character. 
 
Each class has a certain hit die, which affects hit points. Refer to the chart below:

Any spell with the ritual tag can be cast at any time as a ritual (taking ten minutes) without using a spell slot. Clerics gain more spell slots as they progress in level, allowing more spells to be cast. Clerics also can prepare more spells as they level up, allowing them to prepare more spells for more situations. This also allows them to rearrange their spell lists after every long rest for new situations and environments.

Paladin Spellcasting: Paladins have access to their entire spell list from the start. If you can cast level 1 spells, you can prepare any level 1 paladin spell from the entire paladin spell list. Paladins gain more spell slots as they progress in level, allowing more spells to be cast. Paladins also can prepare more spells as they level up, allowing them to prepare more spells for more situations. This also allows them to rearrange their spell lists after every long rest for new situations and environments. Note that paladins do not learn cantrips, nor do they have any on their spell list. 
 
Total Spells Prepared = 1/2 of your Paladin Level + Charisma Modifier

Wizards

 
SOLASTA Crown of the Magister Solasta Complete Guide 
 
Starting Equipment: 

  • Quarterstaff or Dagger 
  • Component Pouch or Orb 
  • Spellbook 
  • Wizard’s Clothing 
  • Scholar’s Pack or Explorer’s Pack

 
Wizard Spellcasting: Wizards have access to whatever spells they have copied into their spellbook. Wizards start with 6 first level spells, and can choose 2 more spells at each level up. Adding other spells outside of this process requires another person’s spellbook or a spell scroll, which the wizard can copy spells from into their own spellbook using an Arcana check (DC = 10 + spell level of the copied spell). Any spell with the ritual tag can be cast at any time as a ritual (taking ten minutes) without using a spell slot, and ritual spells need not be prepared in order to be cast from the spellbook. Wizards can prepare a number of spells from their spellbook to use, and lose access to the rest until their next long rest, at which point they choose their spells again. Your spellbook has enough room to scribe every single spell from the wizard’s spell list into it.

Factions Part 1

 
There are currently six factions in Solasta. Each one has benefits, and it is impossible to reach maximum affinity with all six in a single game. I will also mention that while the game throws out some statements like “joins you in battle”, the factions will never join you in battle. That is a lie. Shame on you, Tactical Adventures. 
 
That said, this section will focus on each faction, who they are, who to talk to, and how to gain affinity with that faction. It will also list what they sell (both in general and very specific terms). 
 
Faction affinity increases along the following scale: 

  • Indifference – Relationship: 0-10. No benefits 
  • Sympathy – Relationship: 11-30. Store can now be accessed 
  • Alliance – Relationship: 31-50. Store discount: 10% 
  • Brotherhood – Relationship: 51-80. Store discount: 20% 
  • Living Legend – Relationship: 81-100. Store discount: 30%

 
At each tier, more of the faction’s store inventory becomes available. In general, the very best stuff is lock behind the Living Legend tier, but some really good stuff can be accessed even if affinity is not maxed out yet. The Ring of Darkvision, for example, fixes the no-light problem and can be accessed from the Antiquarians at Alliance level. 
 
The Scavengers and The Principality of Masgarth both max out automatically each playthrough. The Tower of Knowledge does not need any items given to them in order to max them out; their shopkeeper and contact, Maddy, will grant you +4 to their reputation every time you talk to her if you tell her you missed her. This can be done once every time you enter Caer Cyflen, and can be spammed to maximum affinity as soon as Maddy is available to talk to. 
 
This leaves the Arcaneum, the Antiquarians, and the Circle of Danatar. Of the three, it is easiest to max out the Circle of Danatar, due to it benefiting from storyline boosts to affinity. However, giving faction relics to max out Danatar means you won’t be able to max out one of the other two. 
 
Thus, you cannot maximize every faction’s affinity in a single playthrough. However, played correctly, it shouldn’t take you more than two runs to get every faction to maximum affinity. Now let’s get started looking at each faction and what they offer. 
 

The Antiquarians

 
SOLASTA Crown of the Magister Solasta Complete Guide 
 
Council Member: Chancellor Hertha Gormsdottir 
 
Contact/Shopkeeper: Halman Summer 
 
Items Sold: Utility magic items, bags of holding, low-quality enchanting ingredients 
 
The Antiquarians have a really useful list of magic items. While other shops focus on armor or weapons or ingredients, the Antiquarians are the ones selling enchanted rings, capes, bags of holding, and other utility magic items. Living Legend with them unlocks the Belt of Fire Giant Strength, which sets strength to 25 on a character, making your bruiser character unbelievably powerful. The Ring of Darkvision is another great choice, solving the problem of darkvision for all your humans and halflings in the party. It’s affordable and available early on if you raise your affinity quickly. This is easily my most relied on faction because of the stuff they offer. Everything else can be replaced through loot and enchanting, but there’s no substitute for a full party of people carrying a bag of holding. And this faction has the stat-boosting manuals and tomes, allowing your characters to boost their ability scores by 2 once… even past 20, up to 22.

The Arcaneum

 
SOLASTA Crown of the Magister Solasta Complete Guide 
 
Council Member: Master Ilastar Keenmind Airgentine 
 
Contact/Shopkeeper: Heddlon Surespell 
 
Items Sold: Spell scrolls and primed weapons/armor 
 
The Arcaneum sells primed weapons and armor, and also has most spell scrolls for sale. Gaining affinity with this faction is crucial if you’re wanting to craft all your own gear. Buying a primed greatsword, for example, is exponentially cheaper than buying a +2 greatsword. And you can’t buy the Lightbringer Greatsword, you can only craft it. Below is a list of their stuff and what affinity is requires to purchase it.

The Circle of Danatar

 
SOLASTA Crown of the Magister Solasta Complete Guide 
 
Council Member: Grandmaster Edvan Danatar 
 
Contact/Shopkeeper: Joriel Foxeye 
 
Items Sold: Magic weapons and armor, spell scrolls 
 
The Circle of Danatar sells generic +1 and +1 magic armor and weapons, as well as some spell scrolls. They are easily the least interesting group to purchase from, as you get access to a lot of much better options through general enchanting, even without the affinity of the enchanting-focused factions. They also have the least impressive Living Legend tier. Get to Brotherhood and stop unless you’re achievement hunting. That said, you gain affinity with the Circle of Danatar much easier than the rest, and will have enough affinity just from playing all the game content that you can fill out whatever magic equipment you’re missing with the boring garden variety +1 or +2 equipment. Below is a list of what they sell and what affinity is needed to purchase it.

Council Member: Princess Ceiwad Silverflower, Captain Verissa Ironshell 
 
Contact/Shopkeeper: Hugo Requer, Gorim Ironsoot, Circe Gerardoirin 
 
Items Sold: Crafting recipes, magical equipment, and ingredients 
 
The Principality of Masgarth has a couple of merchants available. Two in Caer Cyflen, the starter magic merchant and general goods merchant, and Circe Gerardoirin at the Manacalon Ruins once you have cleared that area. They sell basic magical equipment, crafting recipes and spell scrolls, and since you will reach Living Legend with this faction every playthrough, you should not worry about what items require which affinity level. If you lack ingredients for potions, scrolls or poisons, check Hugo Requer, who also has some really great potions available at higher affinity. Circe Gerardoirin sells every single enchanting recipe in the game, and I am adding those to the shop list below. All items are recipes for enchanting.

The Scavengers

 
SOLASTA Crown of the Magister Solasta Complete Guide 
 
Council Member: None 
 
Contact/Shopkeeper: Annie Bagmordah, Bertran, Milan, Mogo the Poor, Ramin Blake 
 
Items Sold: None 
 
The Scavengers are not a merchant group, and do not sell anything unique, though they do have some general goods stores that have the entire inventory available regardless of affinity. Rather, they are responsible for coming in behind you after you clear an area (including any random encounters) and picking up stuff that you missed off of enemy corpses and chests that you unlocked but did not completely empty. They are a plot faction, will always reach Living Legend by the end of the campaign, and generally give you an occasional influx of gold after you finish an area when they finish their scavenging runs. 
 

The Tower of Knowledge

 
SOLASTA Crown of the Magister Solasta Complete Guide 
 
Council Member: Dean Lolair Faisech 
 
Contact/Shopkeeper: Maddy Greenisle 
 
Items Sold: Crafting recipes for spell scrolls, poisons, and poisoned ammunition 
 
The Tower of Knowledge is unimpressive. They have a lot of crafting recipes, but I never had much use for them. Poisoned equipment is great but you find plenty of recipes through adventuring, and the only reason I ever crafted spell scrolls was to get the achievement. However, they are easy to gain affinity with, which offsets the low payoff. I will include the same list of items and affinity requirements below. Keep in mind that this faction sells exclusively recipes, so assume this whole list is “Recipe for Crafting [Item Name]” and I just list the Item Name in the list.

Campaign Walkthrough Part 1

 
Solasta’s main campaign stretches several locations, several sidequests, and lots of enemies and, every once in a while, a significant choice. My goal with this guide is to avoid spoilers for the plot of the game, and focus instead on drawing your attention to important choices and the repercussions after those choices. 
 
If something is missable, I will draw your attention to that as well. Otherwise, expect things like “follow the quest goals”, as this is fairly obvious. If a particularly challenging combat encounter is waiting somewhere, particularly a boss fight, I will give you a warning of what to expect and how to prepare. 
 
I hope you find this section helpful! 
 

Campaign Intro

 

 
For the first portion of the game, there will be a brief introduction to each character, and a super unintrusive tutorial for the basic mechanics of the game, which will also familiarize you with the user interface. For this portion, follow the quest markers. 
 
Until you reach Caer Lym, nothing significant happens. The only real freedom of choice comes during the shopping before you set out to leave to investigate the council’s first assignment. Shopping at this point is rough, because you have basically no money, but be sure to upgrade your leather armor characters to studded leather armor, and sell off some of the stuff you don’t need to offset the cost. The additional AC will make more of a difference than you might think. Be sure everyone has the loadout you want, but don’t sweat it too much. You’ll be using these items for a brief time but soon you’ll start getting a slow drip of magical weapons and items to round out your people. 
 
Once you feel prepared, head out. The game is scripted to give you one encounter on the road with some bandits, but this is the only 100% certain encounter while traveling on the overworld map. As a note, be sure every character has a ranged attack option. Bows, ranged spell cantrips, whatever works. At Caer Lym, you will have to fight several different enemies that either fly or spiderclimb up walls, and having ranged options means your fighters and paladins still have options. Additionally, if you want to be able to reach every container in the upcoming area, bring someone with the Jump spell in their arsenal. 
 

Caer Lem

 

 
Once you reach Caer Lem, you’ll fight some goblins on the way up the path. It’s an easy fight, but don’t keep heading towards the outpost. Right after the goblin fight, there is a hidden side path that leads to a goblin cave. Go there and fight all the goblins. This serves two purposes. First, there is a note there that will prove helpful at the outpost momentarily. Second, finding the goblin cave unlocks a side quest when you make your way back to Caer Cyflen. 
 
At the camp, make sure you pass the arcana check at the minor gate. It unlocks a relic that will boost your affinity to a faction. Another battle starts with Brimstone Vipers. This fight is complicated only because you are low level and the enemy likes to fly out of melee range. If you made sure to stock up on ranged options for all of your characers, this will be a nonissue. Remember, just because your fighter has a dexterity score of 8, that doesn’t mean they can’t use a longbow to hit some of the time, rather than stand there with that big sword looking like an idiot. And at this stage in the game, a good d8 damage roll will still make a difference. 
 
The first conversation is fairly simple. Sellswords and Spies have unique dialogue options to gain entry, and even moderately charismatic characters can pass the persuasion check option to enter. 
 
In general, unless you’re achievement hunting, you want to save Daliat. He has a really significant faction relic that he will give you if you pass a certain persuasion check with him, or if you have a character with the spy background in your party. If you have a spy in your party, Daliat will also give you a secondary path to completing the spy background quest. Saving Berryl also gives you faction favor with the Antiquarians once you return to Caer Cyflen and speak to her there. 
 
Who gets saved depends on who is talked to. After you talk to everyone the first time, your party has a group huddle to decide what to do next. If you talk to Robar and convince him to take charge, you will save Robar and Lisbath. Otherwise it’s Daliat and Berryl. Talking to Daliat grants the opportunity at getting the Silent Whisper document, which grants favor with whichever faction you give it to. 
 
From here, it’s just straight running through several encounters with enemies. Move slowly and cautiously, and trigger surprise rounds when you can to gain the advantage. You need to give yourself every advantage this early, since your characters are still pretty squishy and a couple bad rounds will do you in. Check the area for interactive targets as you progress so you don’t miss anything. The Jump spell is extremely useful for reaching all the containers in this area. Once you finish, make your way back to Caer Cyflen. 
 
At Caer Cyflen, be sure to sell any excess stuff you might be carrying, check in with the Scavengers to get them started scavenging, and take quests from the quest board (there should be 2, both at Caer Lem). At this point, go back to Caer Lem, accomplish both side quests, then head to the new area that has been unlocked – the suspected enemy base. Note that the goblin base and the caverns past the outpost will all have repopulated with enemies, so go in prepared for more combat. 
 
Significant Items: 

  • Imperial Gate Plaque 
  • Silent Whisper Document 
  • Tirmarian Holy Symbol 
  • Tirmarian Inquisitor’s Journal

 

The Manacalon Ruin

 

 
Hoo boy. This area has a lot of ups and downs, is built like a maze, and there are a lot of things you can miss. Again, be prepared for a couple of smaller encounters on the way through (cultists and spectral spiders), followed by a campfire for a long rest, followed by a big brawl at the very last room. You may have to revisit this area later when you have the Fly spell in order to reach all the chests and fully explore. For now, focus on reaching the objectives, and come back when you have the magical means to explore fully. Your party will suggest that the humans you encounter at the camp might be friendly. They are not. Surprise them. 
 
Once you reach the library portion, head right and check the door first. Then, as you head through the rest of the library, make sure to save before investigating the statues. There are three total statues that offer a faction relic if your party succeeds an arcana check while investigating them. Make sure you save and reload until you pass each check, or you’ll miss out. 
 
Before you reach the third statue (almost immediately after the dragonborn statue) you’ll be ambushed by spiders. This fight can be kind of dicey because your characters start surrounded, and you don’t get a chance to position your casters in a safe spot. Save in case the dice don’t go your way. 
 
After this, it’s all just one objective after the next, until you reach a campfire. Be sure to rest up, level up to level four, and save. The very next room from the campfire is a huge brawl against several tough enemies. Be sure to cast any long-lasting buffs, like Mage Armor or False Life, before heading in. Enter stealth mode before entering as well to try to get a surprise round in. 
 
Know that it does not matter from a story perspective who gets the artifact at the end of this dungeon. It is powerful and gives some healing properties, so give it to someone who normally would not have healing as an option. Head back to Caer Cyflen after this, and celebrate your victory.

Campaign Walkthrough Part 2

 

The Dark Castle

 

 
This castle is a long slog compared to Caer Lem, but it still isn’t all that bad. To start with, be sure to NOT go straight into the castle through the front gate. While this is perfectly acceptable, it will miss out on an important side quest for the Antiquarians. Instead, take the side path (not immediately apparent) on the right. Follow it to the graveyard, talk to the ghost, and get the quest to find his bones. There are three piles of bones – one in the graveyard with the ghost, one in a container inside the keep on the left, before actually entering the main castle, and the final pile of bones is to the left of Talbut’s house, down the side path to the left of the main castle entrance. 
 
Talbut is irrelevant, and can be spoken to or killed. In the main courtyard, expect a fight, then a confrontation with Adam, the skeletal captain of the guard. Talk your way through, or kill him. It is worth noting that if you do not kill Adam here, but end up fighting the lord of the castle later, Adam will help in that fight, making it harder in the end. 
 
There are four ways to enter the castle. Pick one, they don’t really matter, and then head inside. 
 
Inside the castle, there is an Encrypted Spellbook inside a locked room near the entrance. This book is a faction affinity item. A couple of fights in, there is a long rest checkpoint, so feel free to take your time, and explore carefully. Make sure you explore everywhere before moving forward, as there is a lot of castle to see. 
 
Inside, you will face Lizzaria of Grimhold. Again, spare of kill at your leisure. There is the long rest point, so be sure you stay fueled up and ready to go. There are a lot of fights, including a few surprise ambushes that you cannot avoid. The third boss of this area is automatically engaged when you find the “move to new area” glow in front of a closed door. 
 
Aksha is a vampire. She is also the first enemy in the game with legendary actions. You can talk your way out of fighting, but you miss out on her loot, which includes an item for faction affinity. If you try to loot her stuff after negotiating with her, she will still attack. If you choose to fight, be prepared before you go in with any buff spells you want. Be sure, during the fight, to keep your party separated. She has an ability that blinds everyone within a certain area, and it will ruin your day. 
 
A few tips for the Aksha fight: 

  1. Focus your attacks on Aksha. Hit her hard and early, her legendary actions make her a real damage dealer, and you’ll lose the long game against her combos 
  2. Chill Touch will completely change this fight. So long as Aksha is chilled, she cannot heal. At all, ever. This turns off her hp regeneration every round, she cannot drain hit points with her bite attack, and occasionally she will try to drain 10 hit points from the other enemies to heal for 10… but while the damage is done, the healing is blocked. 
  3. Spread out! She can’t hit everyone with AoE if you aren’t clustered together. 
  4. Be sure to get a long rest and enter this fight at your best 
  5. If you end up hit by her darkness or concealment effects, AoE is your friend. Spirit guardians is easily the best spell here 
  6. Radiant and Fire damage are the way to go here 
  7. If you have a way to make your bruiser’s weapon magical, do it; Aksha is resistant to nonmagical damage 
  8. Aksha can fly. Have the Fly spell prepared for your melee bruiser, or cast it ahead of time on them. 
  9. Light sources harm Aksha and her minions, and also turn off her regeneration. Have light on your weapons, even if your whole party has darkvision, or lure Aksha into the previous room with the glowing orbs on the wall – those count and will completely change the fight. 
  10. It is absolutely crucial you turn off Aksha’s regeneration. Chill touch is the best option. Light on your weapons is second best. If you do not have either of those options, move to the hallway with the glowing orbs. No matter what, do not fight Aksha while she is regenerating. You will lose by attrition. 
  11. Buff your party IMMEDIATELY BEFORE opening the door. Good options are: Mage Armor, Shadow Armor, Protection from Evil and Good, cast light on everyone’s weapons, & consider giving the bruiser a potion of giant strength if you’ve found one to increase their effectiveness this fight.

 
The next area is a maze, but it isn’t complicated. There are traps all over that should be disarmed first. The room you want to go to is the one with the circle and four buttons on the floor, and it can be reached by opening the steel door by stepping on the button just down the hall from it. From there, you can push aside some boxes in the next room, opening a path. 
 
A character with Fly, Misty Step or Spiderclimb can bypass a lot of aggravation. They can unlock the rest area by pushing the crate after they reach the top, and as there is no ceiling, can simply move up and over walls to the areas they want to reach. The center lab area has a button on the inside that unlocks that door leading to it. 
 
When you step on all four buttons at once in the circle room, some portals open up and designs on the wall start to glow. “Stairs, Down, Up, Right, Up, Down” is the order here. Step on portal, activate wall design, and just follow the order. You’ll be taken through several portals before the process finishes, but explore everywhere you can on the way for some good loot. The final door immediately after finishing the maze leads to a massive unavoidable ambush, so backtrack and take a long rest before triggering it. 
 
Long rest again, because immediately after that ambush is Mardracht. He is the final boss, and he is just as tough as Aksha was. Focus on him, have counterspell prepared, and be ready for him to counterspell your high level spells too. If you can, wait for him to cast shield, which uses his reaction, then unload your high level spells. Focus on him, and the rest shall fall. One good Turn Undead also makes this a much simpler fight. Or you can just negotiate with him. 
 
Once this encounter resolves, you have finished the Dark Castle! Congratulations, it’s one of the longest straight crawls, and you succeeded. Take the Major Gate in Madracht’s office back to Caer Cyflen when you’ve finished looting the place. 
 
Important Items: 

  • Encrypted Spellbook 
  • Aksha’s Journal 
  • Depleted Rune

 

Tirmarian Ruins (and onwards)

 

 
There are a couple of sidequests to do if you feel like it before heading into the next possible gem location. I will mention that the sidequest that takes you back to the Manacalon Ruins involves a massive brawl against fire elemental creatures in the final room where you got the plot device earlier. That fight can be brutal at this level. Be prepared, attack from stealth for a surprise round, bring ranged options, and try to have as many magical items equipped for attacking as possible. Frost damage is ideal, as they are vulnerable to that damage type. If you’re outmatched, it’s fine to come back later – the side quest will still be there. 
 
The Tirmarian Ruins (initially listed as “possible gem location”) are super simple. You have a couple of goblin encounters, and the biggest problem is the elevation. The goblin encounters involve easy enemies attacking from higher elevation behind 1/2 or 3/4 cover. It will take several turns to get into melee. Consider giving your biggest melee bruiser the Fly spell to bypass the aggravation here; don’t worry, there are only three combats on this map, and this is a good use of a third level slot. 
 
There is a single puzzle to be completed here. Wait until midnight, then click the center and right-most stone pillar to solve the puzzle. Get a lore dump, then keep on moving forward.

Campaign Walkthrough Part 3

 

Coparann

 

 
Leave the ruins and travel to Coparann with your new companion… until she stops at a random map. There’s a single chest, which spawns an encounter with some orcs. Disarm and unlock the chest, loot it for some really good stuff, and move on. 
 
Important Items: 

  • Encrypted Spellbook

 
You get stopped again at another location. It’s literally a hallway with a locked chest. The chest has a magical weapon inside, so grab that, but there’s nothing else here. Keep going… and get stopped again, this time at a caravan. There will be a brief combat, after which point you can rest up, trade, and move on. 
 
NOW you reach Coparann. No more unplanned stops. You’re finally here. 
 
Follow the objectives. It’s a good bit of running around. Be sure to stop in to check on the Scavengers’ Guild here, and to deliver the letter to the shopkeep for some extra gold. Eventually, you will reach a point where you are exploring the catacombs under the keep. There is a side room with a chest with some books with lore, but beyond that head straight through. You will be ambushed by Soraks – fight them and win, and then prepare to move the plot forward from there. The puzzle requires you to activate the leftmost stone, and the two rightmost stones. If you want to get the treasure chest behind the locked cell door, Misty Step is the quickest option. It has a magical +1 quarterstaff, a poison recipe, and some gold. Missable if you don’t care to be a completionist. 
 

The Fortress of the Shield

 

 
Next stop: The Fortress of the Shield. Before you set about exploring this map, make sure it’s daytime. You’ll be fighting a lot of undead that take damage each turn and attack at disadvantage during the daytime, even if they’re indoors. This makes your life much simpler. The first encounter has some wolves and a winter wolf, which is simple enough. Kill the wolves so the winter wolf doesn’t get advantage from allies, and then make your way through the rest of the map, grabbing whatever you can. Note that there is a little lake with a bag in it. You can drain the lake by shooting the wall inside the building nearby. In that same building is a room that can only be reached by shooting (not shoving) the pillar. While there are no absolutely unmissable things here, there’s some good loot to grab. 
 
When you finish exploring the map, go to the entrance, and wait until midnight. You’ll have another ambush as you do this puzzle, and this is a brutal one. Save beforehand, and do all your spell prep. The ambush springs when you finish the first of two of the puzzles, and you’ll face 6 of the same variety of undead you’ve been fighting. Focus on one or two at a time and kill them quickly. If you have a daylight spell, this is a fabulous time to use it. Make sure all your weapons have the Light spell on them before you spring the trap too. 
 
First puzzle: left and right stone pillars. Second puzzle: all three pillars 
 
Once the door is open, it will stay open, so go long rest after that ambush. Then head on in. 
 
If it shows up when you press the Alt button, interact with it. The locked office can be opened by pressing a book in the library room. There are a lot of things to find, like The Elven Wars, which is gained by interacting with the book on the table in the Major Gate room. The far end of one hall has a long rest point and a magic barrier. The other far end leads to the next boss fight, so prep for that the same way you prepped for the ambush at the entrance – light spells on everything, mage armor, fly on your heavy melee guy, and generally prepare for a brawl. Know that you will not have your 5th companion for this fight, so ignore her – you lose her in a cinematic before the fight begins. 
 
This boss fight ends when Razan is reduced to 1/3 his total hit points. It can be ended quickly if you want, or you can farm the three supporter undead creatures for experience. In any case, the fight ends and you gain another gem. Long rest, and head back up. It’s time to put an end to Razan permanently. 
 
Ulike the rest of the fights in this area, make sure you trigger this fight during the nighttime. The exact same penalties apply but the game will auto-wait for you and undo a lot of your prep. Prep again for the same kind of fight, just with way more supporting undead and lots of regen. Focus on the undead minions first, as Razan is hard to pin down. Save some of your burst damage for him once the rest of his minions are down. The reward for this is some really sweet magical loot, and an achievement. 
 
Head back through the magic gate after this back to Caer Cyflen. Give Arwin Merton his sword back, hand in any faction items you have, check the scavenger’s guild for any new shipments, get all the new quests from the quest board, and then head to the council to report your progress. 
 
Important Item: 

  • Ancient Manifest 
  • Poem 
  • The Elven Wars 
  • Magic Weapon Request

 
Now for some sidequests. There is one – Bitterroot’s Treasure Map, which leads to an orc brawl. Not too hard, but the shaman can ruin your day while you’re mobbed by melee brutes. Aoe is your friend, and have counterspell ready to shut down the shaman. 
 
The quest leading to the Magister’s Amulet has a tough, tough fight against several air elementals. This might be worth waiting to do until you have access to the banishment spell, and a full suite of magical weapons. It’s a hard fight. 
 
The Collector has an encounter with a small group of humanoids, a mix of brawlers and casters. It’s comparatively easy, but complicated slightly by the terrain. Not really worth sweating, and you have plenty of time to cast your pre-fight buff spells without starting combat. 
 
Runs in the Family has a simple fight against more of the same undead as before. Make sure it’s daytime, and just steamroll the fight. Now with the side quests done, back to the main story! 
 

The Volcano

 

 
There are technically two options here. I always go to the volcano first, because the hardest fight in the game happens at The Lava Fields, and it is much better to finish all the other stuff first and, with any luck, be level 10 with a full suite of magic items before then. However, if you feel like pushing your luck, or you feel confident, you are free to go to the lava fields first. 
 
There are two ways to do this area. One is scorched earth and kill everything that moves, which is boring, and the other is to talk to the shaman outside the volcano entrance to take a diplomatic route to this area. Speaking the Orc language gives you advantage on a lot of persuasion checks in this area. 
 
Your first task is to free the shaman’s chieftain, who is guarded by a bunch of other orcs. This fight isn’t too hard, and once you’ve finished it, you’ll be brought around to the rest of the tribes. 
 
First up is a duel between the next orc chieftain and a party member of your choice. You will be stripped of all equipment heading in, which means your caster can’t cast. Choose a melee bruiser and take some of the garbage-quality arena equipment when offered. Duel. It’s a tough duel only because you are one-on-one and because you have crap equipment, but so long as the dice don’t betray you, you’ll be fine. 
 
The Bloodfang want you to get an axe. The axe is extremely powerful, and guarded by the Spider Queen boss fight. It’s only tough because she spawns an endless supply of spiderlings, which harry your backline fighters. Having rings of poison resistance on your vulnerable guys, or even better, a periapt of proof against poison from the Antiquarians, will make this fight much easier. It’s hard, and there’s no way to really prepare beyond doing your usual pre-battle buff spells. Focus on the queen, deal with the spiderlings after. You can keep the greataxe, but don’t, it’s not THAT great. 
 
 

Campaign Walkthrough Part 4

 
Spider Queen Tips: 

  • Always, always, always do your pre-battle buffs. Mage Armor, Fire Shield, Aid, etc. 
  • There’s gonna be a LOT of poison damage this fight. Getting resistance or immunity on every single character will improve your chances a lot. Don’t worry, you’ll need this stuff again soon for a green dragon fight. Pay up. 
  • AoE spells like Spirit Guardians or Lightning Bolt, which can be maneuvered to hit only enemies, are really helpful 
  • Chill Touch is useful here. The Spider Queen will spend her turn or a legendary action draining health from nearby spiderlings if she gets low. This will always damage the spiderlings, but the queen still won’t heal if affected by Chill Touch 
  • Burn it if you got it. This is not the time to halfway fight, the queen has a ton of hit points and deals a lot of damage, and you can long rest after the fight when you deliver the axe. 
  • The Spiderlings are problematic because they harrass your casters in the back. If you have a spell that summons lots of smaller things (conjure animals, conjure minor elementals, etc), use it to flood the field with targets that will distract the spiderlings and dilute the damage to your backline casters

 
Once you deliver the axe, the next tribe you need to visit is the Sandravens. They want you to raid a tomb, which is a trick. The tomb, while a bit of a fight, is not the boss fight. The Sandraven chief betrays you, ambushes you after you leave, and you have to fight him and a bunch of Sorr-Akkath fighters. The challenge of this tribe isn’t any individual fight, it’s the ambush after you possibly expended all your resources in the previous tomb-raiding. Save your best stuff for the ambush and you’ll be just fine. 
 
This final tribe has another option. You COULD just go take the gate inside the tomb, bypass the dead emperor and the ambush, and go straight to the fight with the final boss of this region, but without the help of the orc tribes. I have never done this, because that fight has a lot of enemies, and having some support is extremely helpful. 
 
Once you survive the ambush, it’s time to face the boss. He has a lot of fire elementals and lobs a lot of fire damage spells around. Fire resistance is extremely useful in this fight if you have access to it. Fire Shield and Protection from Energy are two spells that will save your life. Prep ice damage spells, and try not to leave your characters on fire if you can help it. This fight is hard, and the strategy is really just to grind through the enemies. There’s not even really a priority target – just focus on one thing at a time so there’s gradually less stuff running around attacking you. Once you win, you’ve completed the volcano. Well done! 
 
Significant Items: 

  • Encrypted Spellbook

 

The Lava Forest

 

 
Buckle up, this is the wildest dungeon in the game, and the boss fight at the end of this one is absolutely brutal. Before you even come here, make sure every single person in your party is resistant or immune to poison. Immunity is preferable. Spending enough money to buy four poison immunity amulets from the Antiquarians is worth the expense, because you’ll be fighting a green dragon and one breath attack will gut your entire party, even at level 10, if you aren’t prepared and playing on anything over Easy difficulty. 
 
The initial forest is full of “traps” that are only disarmed by shooting the plants in the middle. There is an obvious ambush from spiders in the clearing area that is sprung only when you try to loot the container. There’s some good loot, but my recommendation is to skip this fight until later when you have access to the long rest spot. It’s pretty rough. Cast Fly on the bruiser beforehand so they can get to the spiders that don’t politely come into melee range from the treetops. 
 
In fact, there are a lot of resource-draining battles in this area that can be avoided until you reach the shack with the campfire outside of it. Until you have access to the long rest point, you really should focus on going north and west until you reach that area. If you try to power through all three big fights in this area with no breaks, you will have a really hard time. Explore once you have a campfire to go back to. 
 
Once you click the gem, you’re transported away from the lava fields to a different area. And so begins the long slog through this dungeon. At least it’s a fascinating dungeon. 
 
Down the left path is the arena. This is exactly what it sounds like. There are three required waves, going from Undead, to Orcs, to a menagerie of monstrosities. Save your resources for the last wave, as it is the most deadly. There is a fourth wave that is optional, and the bonus chest has nothing unmissable, so if you’re tapped out, skip it and move on. 
 
The right path has a super dark maze to go through. Even with darkvision, it’ll be pitch black. Light up a torch and you’ll be able to see enough to navigate. It’s not much of a maze, but more of a complicated circle, so just find the glowy button, press it, and head back. There is a small area with a chest, but it’s skippable. 
 
Once the main door is open, head through to the area with the obvious trap chest. It spawns 4 earth elementals and 2 air elementals. You might be thinking to yourself, good lord, that’s a lot of elementals, and those earth elementals have a ton of health. Well here’s a happy fun fact for you: earth elementals can’t fly. Fire elementals and air elementals can, but earth elementals can’t! So go ahead and send them off the edges of the center platform and they will plummet to their deaths! It makes this whole fight much quicker and less of a headache. 
 
Next room is a lie. Deal 1 damage and the illusory dragon fades. The center pile of gold leads to the next area. Now, you COULD just… move on. Skip this whole area. The path to the exit is right there. But the chests have some good stuff. Step on all four yellow buttons. Go to the first chest then to get the Encrypted Spellbook. Then step on the orange buttons you can reach now… and rotate the center block. Do this three times total, until the buttons are in position for you to step on them in the center. Step on them twice to rotate the blue bricks to allow access to the second chest. Press the orange buttons one more time, then the yellow buttons twice. The second chest is locked and trapped, but holds the best quarterstaff in the game. Go to the exit. 
 
The cube of light is a solo miniboss. It’s not particularly hard, but it is a bit of a grind to get through. Once it falls, you are free to actually move forward from this area. If you have a mage with counterspell, that will help a lot, as the cube casts some really high level high damage spells, like cone of cold, but if you can shut it down, it doesn’t have legendary actions, so it just loses its turn. 
 
This is the last area. Finally. You can take the book in the center dais if you want (it sets all ability scores to 20), but you can’t keep it. You have to give it back when you reach the mansion, so just leave it be. There are some random monsters outside to fight, so the book does help in the short term. 
 
Now, this house? Don’t behave. Touch everything. Loot all of it. You have to fight the end boss anyway, and you don’t get to backtrack later. Nobody fights you inside the mansion either, so no matter how ominous it sounds, go wild. Rest at the rest stop; your next stop is the hardest boss fight in the game. 
 
This boss fight consists of 2 stages. In the first stage, you need to activate all the pillars to disable the shield. Every round you leave a pillar up, everyone takes lightning damage. In this stage, it is acceptable to focus on the pillars, not the Spectral Servants. They do moderate damage, but you need to be in as good a spot as possible for stage two. 
 
 

Campaign Walkthrough Part 5

 
Part 2 of the boss fight is the dragon. Remember at the start of this section when I said poison would be a huge issue here? Every single member of your party needs to be resistant or immune, preferably immune. Otherwise the breath attack will drop a couple party members each time, and that’s without the added problem of the bite attack that also does poison damage. 
 
However, it goes from almost impossible to manageable if you have poison resistance. Keep your healers on standby, be ready to bring people back from the dead, and unload every high level damage source you have on the dragon. Frustratingly, the dragon can relocate as a legendary action, which means your melee bruisers will spend a good amount of time running back and forth. If they can’t reach the dragon, hit a Spectral Servant. If they can’t hit anything, move and dodge. Dodge makes your characters harder to hit, and gives advantage on dex saves against the breath weapon. 
 
It’s hard. Save beforehand, prep a lot, and be ready to win by a narrow margin. 
 
Green Dragon Boss Fight Tips: 

  • Cast fly on someone before the fight so they can quickly move from pillar to pillar. Ideally, cast fly on the rogue, who can dash as a bonus action. If your rogue has the thief subclass, even better, as they can do two item interacts per turn with a bonus action. 
  • Lightning is useless in this fight against the servants. 
  • Protection from Energy is easily the best spell to cast to prep for this fight. It grants resistance to all major sources of damage you encounter. If you can get it going on everyone, great. 
  • I mention this repeatedly, but while lightning resistance is optional, poison resistance is non-negotiable. The Antiquarians sell Periapt of Proof against Poison that makes you outright immune. This is even better, and worth spending your money on. 
  • The dragon has two annoying abilities. First is frightful presence, which makes everyone afraid if they fail a save. The other is its breath attack, which deals upwards of 60-70 points of poison damage to everyone in a cone (dex save for half). POISON RESISTANCE IS CRUCIAL. 
  • Those giant strength potions you’ve been saving? Use them. 
  • Burn everything you have on the dragon. The spectral servants are background noise. Deal with them as convenient, but the dragon is the ONLY important target during this fight. 
  • There are a few spells that are really worth the investment in this fight: 
    • Protection from Poison (lvl 1) OR Protection from Energy (lvl 3) – Poison damage control 
    • Fly – this is super helpful in getting through stage 1 of the fight quickly 
    • Heroism – Immune to fear; good on allies that did not pass their save against the Frightful Presence 
    • Mage Armor & Shield – you know why 
    • Stoneskin – resistance to melee attacks of the dragon 
    • Ray of Enfeeblement – the dragon has legendary resistances, but this cuts all non-poison damage in half from the dragon, making it the hail mary of level 1 spells. And since it’s a level 1 spell, you can use it over and over and hope for the best. 
    • Wall of Fire – If you can keep this up around your party, this will regularly do good damage to the dragon and the spectral servants, and is a good way to even up the damage output 
    • Mass Healing Word/Mass Cure Wounds – this fight is rough, because you are one bad round away from half a party being down. This is a game-changer spell in that situation. 
    • Spiritual Weapon – persistent bonus action damage 
    • Mind Twist – High damage AoE that can incapacitate the servants for a round or two 
    • Beacon of Hope – max healing is usually irrelevant, but this is the fight where every hit point counts, and a max roll on Mass Cure Wounds for everyone is a huge deal.
  • It might seem like a good idea to split up, but it isn’t. The dragon’s breath attack covers a massive area, and will regularly get 2-3 of your characters, regardless of placement 
  • Grouping up also enables things like your rogue’s sneak attack and the paladin’s auras, the protection fighting style, and keeps everyone close for the mass heals. 
  • If you’re like me, you like to hoard your one-time use items in case you need them later. This fight? This is what you were saving them for. It doesn’t get tougher than this. It’s time to use them.

 
Good luck. If you can win this fight, you’ve beaten the game. What’s left after this is a victory lap as a reward for winning this fight. 
 

Temple of the Lost God

 

 
If you have any outstanding side quests, wrap them up now. I do want to mention that at this point there is a slightly broken puzzle when you reach the Temple of the Lost God, followed by a moderately challenging fight inside if you aren’t ready for it. The entrance puzzle is not broken, so much as unintuitive. Follow the charts below on placing your characters on the pressure plates to pass the puzzle. 
 
Step 1: 
 
Place four characters on each of the pressure plates, as shown below. The 5th member of your party is to remain off of the pressure plates until the final step. 
 

ooo
o12
o34

 
Step 2: 
 
Move individual 3 to the indicated plate. No one else should move. 
 

ooo
312
oo4

 
Step 3: 
 
Move individual 4 to the left, creating the triangle design, as shown below. As with before, keep everyone else in the same place. 
 

ooo
312
o4o

 
Step 4: 
 
Move person 1 up to the top row, creating the diamond pattern. As with before, keep everyone else in the same place. 
 

o1o
3o2
o4o

 
Step 5: 
 
Move your final party member to the top right pressure plate. This will open the door to the temple and complete the puzzle. 
 

51o
3o2
o4o

 
Inside the temple is a relatively hard fight, if only because you will be taking a lot of fire damage from 3 Remorhaz inside. Protection from Energy will get you through this fight with very little trouble, especially if it’s coupled with sneaking in and springing a surprise round on the enemy. In any case, keep a close eye on Arwen Merton. He’s a good fighter, but compared to the rest of your party, he’s fairly squishy. It’s ok to have him retreat or just defend if he gets low. 
 
Every side quest should be available at this point, so wrap them all up if you care to. From this point on, it’s all main questline stuff, so buckle up for the endgame!

The Endgame

 

 
Alright, you’ll be bouncing from place to place a lot. There’s not much else to advise you to do except to follow the quest marker to the next spot, and do what is asked of you. A few notes as you go. 
 
First, when Heddlon warns you to sleep at the inn, do so. You will be ambushed by a (relatively unthreatening) group of Sorr-Akkath assassins. If you want to kill them, rest in your palace quarters. It’s a good place to round out some of the more uncommon Sorr-Akkath bestiary entries (notably, a Sorr-Akkath Shikkath is present). 
 
NOTE: Once you go to Earcorn, you can no longer increase faction affinity or shop at some faction stores. 
 
After the long rest, there’s a whole lot of lore dump stuff. Arwen Merton joins you if you did his whole questline for the Earcorn trip, which is obviously a trap and which you can easily handle by this point. Cue more lore dump before you make your way back to Caer Cyflen. 
 
After you’re back, just follow the plot for a while. You’ll run all over Caer Cyflen for a while, have the easiest fight of your life against unarmed civilians, and then… teleport. Once you hit the teleport, it’s a walk down a few encounters until the final battle. Enjoy the ride. Note that after this long rest, you won’t get another, so conserve your resources over the next several fights. The chest has some really good magic items, but most likely you won’t need any of them unless you’ve been completely ignoring side quests and crafting. 
 
In order, you will fight: 

  • Fire Elemental and 5 Fire Spiders 
  • 2 Sorr-Akkath Assassins, 1 Sorr-Akkath Warrior, 1 Sorr-Akkath Saboteur 
  • 4 Badland Wraiths 
  • Short Rest recommended 
  • 4 Air Elementals 
  • Short Rest recommended 
  • The Final Showdown (until the Sorr-Akkath Tshar is killed) 
  • The Final Showdown Remix (4 rounds only)

 
And after you wrap up these fights, you’ve won the game. This might seem like a lot, and it can be, but remember to short rest when you need to. There’s nothing to do here. There is some stuff to loot, but why bother? This is the endgame. You can’t go back and play more once you finish. 
 
Just focus on killing everything that has a red circle around it, and enjoy the feeling of victory at the end! Well done!

Spell Compendium Part 1

 
Below, you will find a full compendium of all spells in the game, along with their abilities. Refer to the Spell List section for which class can learn which spells. Refer to the section on individual classes for how their spellcasting functions and how they prepare or learn spells. 
 
Components: 
 
Verbal Components (V) – Verbal components require the caster to be able to speak, and spells with this component cannot be cast in the area of a Silence spell. Almost every spell has a verbal component, meaning the Silence spell is a very effective way of shutting down spellcasting. Thunder damage also has no effect in a silenced area. 
 
Material Components (M) – Material components indicate a spell needs either a spell focus or a component pouch. In this game, you should always have one or both of those available unless you sell them. Don’t sell your component pouch or spell focus, but if you do, you can always buy another one. 
 
Somatic Components (S) – Somatic components are movements done with the hands, and spells with somatic components require a free hand in order to cast. Thus, if your character is wielding a sword and shield, they cannot cast spells with material components. There are some subclasses, such as battle cleric, which can use their weapon for somatic components, bypassing this restriction. Note that it is possible to wield a shield in one hand and nothing in the other, maximizing defense while still using spellcasting. 
 
Ritual Spellcasting: 
 
Ritual spells can be cast at any time as a ritual. Casting a spell in this manner takes ten minutes (meaning it must be done outside of combat), but casting spells as a ritual does not use up a spell slot. So if you’re completely tapped out after a fight, but you find a magic item? You can still cast Identify to figure out what the item is. Just cast it as a ritual. 
 
Concentration: 
 
Many spells require concentration. A character can concentrate only on one spell at a time. If you cast another concentration spell, the game will give you an alert reminding you that you will lose the first concentration spell if you cast the next one. Additionally, concentrating on spells requires a constitution saving throw every time you take damage. Failing that save also loses concentration and drops the spell. The pay-off for all this is that concentration spells are usually very useful or powerful effects that have significant impact during combat.

21 or more1/2 the damage taken, rounded up

 
Cantrips: 
 
Cantrips are basic spells that do not require a spell slot to cast. In other words, you never run out of cantrips to cast, and it is usually a good idea to have one or two attack cantrips to deal damage even when your casters run out of spell slots. Cantrips also scale with your character, and do more damage as you level up (as shown in the chart below). In Solasta, the maximum level currently is 10, so you only upgrade your cantrip damage once.

Spell Saves: Some spells require a save from the target. The DC for that save is calculated as follows: 
 
Spell Save DC = 8 + caster proficiency bonus + caster spellcasting ability modifier 
 
Refer to earlier sections for which ability affects each class’s spellcasting, and what proficiency bonus is given at what levels. 
 
With all that explained, let’s get to the list of spells!

Conclusion

 
I hope you find this guide helpful. I put a lot of work into it, and tried to avoid spoilers where I could, and to focus on mechanics explanations, tips on how to handle difficult boss fights and encounter sequences, and overall just to give a good resource for people to reference when exploring this game. 
 
I’m excited for the upcoming updates, and I hope we see more from Tactical Adventures soon. This was a fantastic game, and I’m looking forward to the community created content that’s sure to come, especially as the dungeon maker tool gets more refined. 
 
Please let me know if you find any mistakes or if I have incorrect information in the guide anywhere, and I will try to correct it as fast as I can. 
 
Thanks for reading!
