Spells for each Class

All classes in Grimoire learn spells. There are 5 basic spell schools associated with a specific specialist who starts learning that school at level 1, as well as Arcanum/Eldritch spells (for which you need to find special spell books and the Eldritch spell page needs to be unlocked). Every class learns spells from a a certain level.

The Spellcaster classes start learning their spells at Level 1:

  • Wizard
  • Cleric
  • Sage
  • Thaumaturge
  • Necromancer

Other classes:

  • Warrior: Wizard spells at level 9
  • Ranger: Thaumaturge spells at 4
  • Thief: Thaumaturge spells at 6
  • Templar: Cleric spells at 3
  • Berserker: Thaumaturge spells at 10
  • Jester: Sage and Wizard spells at 3
  • Bard: Cleric and Wizard spells at 3
  • Metalsmith: Sage spells at 6
  • Pirate: Wizard and Thaumaturge spells at 6
  • Assassin: Thaumaturge and Necromancer spells at 3

Classes that start with crowd control spells

Spellcaster classes that can start with crowd control spells that affect a whole group of enemies:

Cleric = Sleep

Wizard = Charm, Sleep, Blinding Flash, Irritation

Thaumaturge = Blinding Flash, Irritation

Sage = Charm

Necromancer = Insect Swarm (damage and chance for Irritation and Confusion), Brain Rot (Insanity and Confusion), Irritation, Dread (Fear)

How the Bonus Points you roll are used

When you create a character, the bonus points you roll (maximum 32 points) will get used automatically to increase the attributes necessary to reach the class minimum requirements with the race you chose. If you have any bonus points left after that, you can choose to use them in one of three ways:

  • Increase the amount of Hitpoints
  • Increase the attributes (STR, INT, WIS, etc.)
  • Increase the skill points

If you roll less than 15 bonus points you do NOT get to assign the remaining bonus points, this is not a bug.

Note:

  • Males & Females have slightly varied starting attributes (males have more STR while females have more DEV).
  • Nobody can start Jester, Pirate, Assassin

Race/Class Combinations: Multiplier Bonuses and Penalties

Some races have a multiplier bonus OR penalty for some classes, which affect character creation and skill points gained per level.

What the Bonus Point Classes and Penalty Point Classes mean:

  • It gives you a multiplier to the amount of skill points you get on levelup
  • On creation it multiplies the unused portion of the bonus points you roll
  • For example, you roll 32 points as an Aeorb -> You choose the Sage class, so that 5 points needed for Aeorb Sage get subtracted and 27 points remain -> Then 27 is multiplied by 2.0 (Sage is a Bonus Point Class for Aeorbs with a multiplier of 2.0), which gives you 54 points you can apply to attributes, hitpoints OR skill points. You also get double skill points on each levelup with an Aerob Sage (2.0 multiplier).

1-3 Attribute increase (class dependent)

1-3 Attribute increase (class dependent)

1-3 Attribute increase (class dependent)

1-6 Bonus attribute points (you can assign yourself)

5-50(or more) skill points (you can assign yourself)

The minimum and maximum HP, mana and skill points you receive on levelup all depend on CLASS. For example:

Metalsmith Levelup

5-15 HP

8-16 Mana

Multi-Classing

You can change class after lvl 10, if you have the attributes required for the class and each class have limited choice to select a new one. After you change your class, your attributes reset to the racial standard stats with the required class stats you changed. Skills, HP, mana, VIT and spells are kept. If you don't spend attributes points they are also kept, same with spells. XP required to lvl-up is boosted by 25% for your new class.

  • Warrior: Berserker, Pirate, Ranger

Spell interactions with multiclassing:

Spells available to learn on level-up are based ONLY on your current class. The list of spells available do not transfer between classes. E.g., if you are a level 10 cleric and multiclass into templar, you do not get spell picks for your first two templar levels, and when you start learning spells from the Cleric list at templar level 3, you only get the spells available that a level 3 templar (level 1 Cleric) would get.
