Immortals of Aveum is a magic shooter, however, you don’t just use your magic spells in combat to attack or defend yourself. You will also use your powers to solve puzzles and move gigantic objects to create new pathways.
Table of contents
You will be able to obtain different gear that enhances your spell-casting abilities throughout the game. The Gauntlet that you are wearing is the centerpiece that channels your magical powers. It is called a Sigil but there are more pieces of gear that you can find, purchase, craft, and even upgrade that impact your play style.
Three Colors of Magic
There are three different magic colors in the world of Immortals of Aveum.
Your character is unique as Jak is a Triarch Magnus, an extremely rare spellcaster capable of wielding all three colors of magic.
There is Red, Blue, and Green magic and they all have their own capabilities and strengths.
|Breachfire||Red||Similarly to a Shotgun|
|Javelins||Blue||Similar to your long-range Pistol/Sniper|
|Stormshards||Green||Similar to a rapid-firing SMG with homing projectiles|
Red ‘Chaos’ Magic
Red Magic embodies entropy and violence. Its spells can create, rend, and harness energy in extreme ways, manipulating it to unleash a destructive beam or disrupting it to disorient enemies.
Red magic attacks act like your shotgun when comparing it to regular shooters. It deals a lot of damage at close range.
- Short Range
- High Damage
- Area of Effect
|Breachfire||Release multiple wide bursts of Red Magic, great for dealing with groups of enemies.|
|Burstfire||Launch a ball of Red Magic that detonates after a short distance.|
|Fragfire||Casts a wide burst of Red Magic that staggers enemies who dare to get too close.|
Blue ‘Force’ Magic
Blue Magic embodies force and the physical manipulation of matter. Fire precise bolts, spontaneously form shields and defensive walls, or manipulate gravity. Blue magic also powers a Magnus’ ability to grapple, push, or pull objects.
Blue magic attacks act like your sniper rifle when comparing it to regular shooters. Strong targeted attacks that deal good damage.
- Long Range
- Crit Bonus Damage
|Shrikebolt||Fires precise and long-range Blue Magic bolts, Shrikebolts are great to bring into any fight|
|Arclight||Emits a beam of Blue Magic that pierces all enemies in its path|
|Javelin||Charges up a blast of Blue Magic then launches it at long-range enemies. Your view zooms in a bit for a precise shot.|
Green ‘Life’ Magic
Green Magic embodies growth, death, and transition. Spells manipulate enemies and objects by altering them or their surroundings. Bind objects in place, misdirect with illusions, or rend an enemy’s ability to cast or heal.
Green magic attacks act like your SMG when comparing it to regular shooters. The Needler from Halo is a great comparison.
- High Fire Rate
- High Capacity
- Homing Projectiles
|Seekershards||Launches of a volley of accurate Green Magic homing projectiles|
|Stormshards||Pelt fast-moving enemies with Green Magic that seek out and rapidly damage targets|
|Maelstrom||Rapid fire Green Magic projectiles but slows the caster’s movement|
Yes, Immortals of Aveum is a magic shooter but you have more magical powers than simply going PEW PEW PEW.
Strike Spells are the primary attacks that you cast from your Sigil. You can equip a strike spell for each color of magic and each color has 3 different attacks to choose from. The various Sigils all provide different boosts and buffs to your spells.
Match your magic color attack with an enemy defense color to Shred their defense spells.
Fury attacks are extra powerful spells that you can unleash on your foes. However, this collection of spells drains a special Mana bar and therefore must be used wisely. You can find special Mana crystals throughout the world to replenish your Mana bar.
One of the furies creates a black hole that pulls in enemies another one creates a devastating shockwave around you.
|Blastwave||Red||Unleash a powerful Nova explosion of Red Magic around you that wipes out everyone who dares to approach you.|
The Blastwave damage consists of multiple ticks with the last tick dealing the most damage.
|Bash||Red||A Red Magic Orb gets placed on the field which sends out a powerful blast.|
|Shatter||Blue||A powerful Blue Magic Spell that sends forth a shockwave across the ground that explodes in a burst of blue spikes, damaging all enemies in the area.|
|Vortex||Blue||Creates a black hole that pulls in enemies.|
|Torrent||Green||Launches a volley of Green Homing projectiles toward your enemies.|
|Timeburst||Green||A Green Magic Spell gets cast which slows down time in a large area around you. You are also affected by the spell.|
Control spells allow you to manipulate the world and your enemies in a variety of ways. These magic spells let you take control over the battlefield but they are also used to solve puzzles in Immortals of Avuem.
Enemies that have a Blue bubble shield, Red fire glow armor, or Green ripple regen are immune to control spells while they are shielded.
Blue magic also fuels your powers to grapple, push, or pull objects. With your leash, you are able to pull in enemies for a devastating close-range blow or pull yourself to specific locations by hooking onto specific blue markers.
The Leash ability is assigned to the button you would act as the “aim down sight” mechanic in regular shooters.
Limpets is a Green Magic spell that allows you to slow down enemies or objects in order to take control of the situation.
These small blobs of Green Magic are best used against aggressive enemies. You can then take down the larger enemies in combination with Furies, however, you can also shoot the attached Limpets with Red Magic to make them explode.
You can use Disrupt to Spellbreak enemy spells. Enemy health bars will glow when they are casting. Time your Disrupt spell to trigger an explosion.
Dominion spells are Jak’s ultimate move. These spells channel all three colors of magic and focus it in a single beam. The Dominion spell can clear the room of enemies, however, it does take some time to charge before you can cast it.
You don’t take any damage throughout the duration of this destructive magic spell.
|Immolate||Channels a destructive beam of combined magic that does massive damage. Good against single, powerful opponents.|
Augments are there to enhance your play style. These spells commonly have a cooldown and are very tactical in nature. Their performance will improve based on your gear and the skills in your talent tree.
You are able to summon a magical barrier to shield you from enemy attacks. While you are able to shoot through your shield, it will reduce your mobility.
The shield will absorb damage from all angles even while it looks like the shield only protects you from the front. If the shield absorbs too much damage it will break leaving you vulnerable to attacks. There is a brief short slo-mo effect as the shield is shattered.
Immortals of Aveum is a fast pace shooter and with that comes a blink ability. You are able to teleport short distances to quickly dodge enemy attacks or reposition yourself.
Hover allows you to float over the battlefield for a while and rain down your enemies with magic spells.
Manipulate and move key points in the environment
Heal the corruption that poisons the land to clear obstacles and open new paths
The enemies that you encounter during your quest can have shields that protect them from your attacks. These barriers can only be broken by the corresponding color magic. This means that if you come across an enemy with a Red Magic Shield you need to counter that with Red Magic Spells.
Some enemies can be immune to a specific magic type. Switch to a different magic color in order to defeat them.
You can enhance your magic spells by leveling up and unlocking new Talents in your Skill Tree.
