Spellshots are gun-toting wizards who can unleash a constant barrage of spells and bullets and transform their enemies into harmless livestock with the snap of a finger. While others may view their guns as mere weapons, the Spellshot has trained rigorously until it becomes an extension of their own magical will, weaving gun and grimoire together to enhance their spells and imbue their weapons.
Spellshots are all about combining Spells with Guns. Able to equip two Spells, their Spellweaving ability increases Spell Damage and Fire Rate as they cast spells or reload, allowing them to seamlessly cycle between different methods of dealing damage. When enemies get too rowdy, their Polymorph ability can take an enemy out of the fight by transforming them into a harmless skeep.
Every class has its own unique Class Feat. You will get access to both Class Feats when multiclassing.
Casting a Spell or reloading a weapon grants the Spellshot a stack of Spellweaving, increasing Spell Damage. Spellweaving stacks automatically decay after a few seconds. Casting a Repeating Spell has a chance to award additional Spellweaving stacks with each Repeating Cast.
The Spellshot has 2 action skills called ‘Ambi-Hextrous’ and ‘Polymorph’. These abilities are unique to this class you can pick them up when you select your primary class at the start of the game or later in the game when you gain the ability to multi-class and choose a secondary class.
Ambi-Hextrous lets you equip a second Magic spell. A new spell slot will appear next to the default spell slot. You can choose any Magic spell you like. This action skill will count as a spell and not as an ability. Boosting your Ability Damage doesn’t help and don’t use ‘On Action Skill Start’ Enchantments.
Polymorph lets you turn an enemy into a skeep. This basically lets you eliminate an enemy from the combat zone as this spell renders them useless. However, when you shoot the Skeep, you have a chance to cast a free spell. When using a high fire rate weapon this can trigger pretty often.
These are the Spellshot stats that get boosted by Class Power.
The Spellshot’s Skill Tree lets you specialize in Spells and Ranged Weapons.
The Best backgrounds for the Spellshot are; Raised by Elves, Failed Monk, Recovering Inventory Hoarder, Nerfed by the Bunkermaster, Clownblood, or Street Urchin Success Story. This is based on the game’s Hero Points suggestions. However, for End Game builds you can’t go wrong with Village Idiot or Nerfed by the Bunkermaster.
