Spells

Spells are introduced into game play in advanced rules. These allow Characters to essentially use elemental magic to deal more damage or cause status effects to other players or the other team. This can easily change the game and turn the tides in a matter of one shot.

Spells are preformed by striking the RuneBall with select Runes on the sword. The Runes on the sword are as follows.

​​

The Fire Rune

The Fire Rune is at the base of the sword. This is the only rune which can be cast by holding the ball on the flat of the sword or by striking it normally with the edge.

Fire Spells are cast by slowing the ball to a light bounce, then catching the ball with the rear of the sword, propel it up and in front of you and then strike.

The Earth Rune

The Earth Rune is the front of the blade from the about the Fire Rune location to the Earth Rune. The area directly in front of your hands, or the Guard.

Earth spells are genuinely cast by propelling the ball upwards and then slamming the ball down. Earth spells are not affected by the ground as other spells are. Bouncing once or twice before hitting a target does not render the status effect null, or the damage.

The Water Rune

The Water Rune right above the striking point on a blade. This is where the swords tip tappers towards the back. On a Demon Blade this area has a few spikes, the water area actually goes back about half way, but with a demon sword it is still a difficult cast.

Water spells are cast by propelling the ball into the air with the back tip of the sword and then striking it forward with the front tip.

The Air Rune

The Air Rune is located right above the handles on the back of the sword. The area goes up the back of the sword about halfway to the tip.

To start casting air, the best practice is to hold the sword by both grips. Bounce the ball higher then normal and move the sword under the ball in order for the ball to fall and strike the air location. Use an upward motion to propel the ball up and slightly in front of you to then easily strike another Rune.
