    When you first join the server you'll be greeted by a tutorial, which is nice and all but doesn't really help all that much, as such I decided to create a thread detailing everything a beginner should need to know.

    Let's start off with spells:

    To select a spell hotkey/scroll to the spell you want to equip, then click, your hotkey slot will then be sent to the wand you will have equipped the spell, you can then right click to use the equipped spell.

    [Beginner Spells]

    [1] - Firefly:
    Firefly is the firecharge (fireball), it is considered the 'Main' Spell and is an AOE-type attack spell, what this spell does is launches a firefly (basically fireball, but without being able to see the fireball) this spell does 8% damage on direct hit (Damage explained later) and you can use to fireball jump, however a key thing to note is it can do damage to yourself.

    [2] - Cyclone:
    Cyclone is the feather, it is an AOE-type attack spell. What this spell does is launch another player in a given direction, dealing 0% damage but launching the player extremely far, this is my favourite spell, but not the best.

    [3] - Breeze:
    Breeze is the quartz, it is a recovery spell (meaning it's used to prevent yourself from dying), it basically serves as a dash, launching you in the direction you're facing + going a bit up.

    [4] - Heal Pool:
    Heal Pool is the splash potion, it is a healing spell, with this you place down a lingering potion (that also ends fire damage), that reduces 2% of your over-all damage every ~second, a key thing to note is that other players can use the spell and it remains where you placed it even if you are moved until the spell time ends.

    [5] - Grapple:
    Grapple is the string, it is a mechanical spell spell, this launches a fast moving hook towards the targeted block, once it's landed it pulls you towards said block, then if there is no block above your head it will launch you slightly up, they're very useful as they have short cooldowns and are one of the only ways to survive high % hits.

    [Damage System]

    The damage system on here increases your knockback, your % can go up indefinitely however the higher the % the more knockback you take, which can be deadly as their is both a ceiling and border on most maps (which insta-kill when touched), to look at your current % just look at your XP level, that shows your %.

    To reduce your damage you can use spells (such as heal pool) or walk into XP bottles, which recharges all your mana and reduces your damage by 15%.

    [Mana]
    Every spell requires X amount of mana, and if you don't have enough mana for a spell, then you can't use that spell, you can have up to 500 mana and it recharges very fast naturally.
    To re-charge all your mana you can walk into an XP bottle, to view how much mana you currently have just look at the action bar, it shows it there.

    [Orbs & Crates]
    The only way to unlock new spells at the moment is via orbs, you obtain orbs randomly in game and when they appear they are unique to you, orbs appear as hearts of the see and are laid out like experience bottles, to get the orb you have to walk into it, the same applies for crates.

    The difference between orbs & crates:
    - Orbs allow you to get new spells which are helpful within game whereas crates are used to get cosmetics.

    How to use orbs:
    When you get an orb you can return to the lobby to find the Spell Alter, here you can craft a few other things but those aren't that important, when you click on the heart of the sea in the middle, assuming you have some orbs you are able to randomly roll for spells, none of these spells will be the default ones however you can still get dupes (of spells you have previously obtained), to open crates just go to the cauldron and from there on it's pretty simple.

    (he is quite rather mad, perhaps even fuming, or possibly even negatively "wild" as the kids call it.)
