Overview[edit]

A Casting Mode is a game mechanic introduced in Ars Magica 2, available prior to version 1.2.

Pressing the casting mode key (Default: 'C' ) will cycle through the casting modes that determine how powerful a spell will be and how much mana will be consumed in the process.

Casting Modes[edit]

There are three casting modes:

  • Diminished casting is a weaker version of the spell, with a lessened mana cost. The icon for this is a down arrow or a crescent moon.
  • Normal casting is a standard version of the spell. The icon for this is an arrow pointing towards you or a half moon.
  • Augmented casting is a much stronger version of the spell, with a generally higher mana cost. The icon for this mode is an up arrow or a full moon.
