Sorcery is the ability to create magical spawns, or cast spells, with the use of karma. It is sometimes confused with a very different area of the game:priests and the use of religion-based spells.


  • Sorcery abilities are learned from magic tomes or through special Valrei items.
  • Each sorcery item comes with its own unique ability as well as a resistance and a weakness to a certain type of damage.
  • On Freedom: Sorcery items have a chance to be dropped by a unique monster upon death. (These are dropped before the butcher, similar to how a troll may drop a Troll club). These tomes have 1 or 3 charges.
    • Dragon unique tomes will only have 1 charge.
    • Humanoid uniques have a higher chance at dropping a tome, however they will not drop drake hide or dragon scale like dragons. These tomes have 3 charges.
  • On Epic: Sorcery items are acquired through the completion of missions and obtaining scenario points. If the main god of your kingdom wins the current scenario on the Valrei map, then each scenario point acquired works like a raffle ticket (a random point is drawn and a sorcery item is given). These tomes have 1 charge on Epic.


  • Each sorcery item comes with charges that grant its effect to the player that uses it. To gain powers from a sorcery item, it must be used near an altar. Attempting to 'use' it in an inappropriate place will result in a message telling you what other conditions must be fulfilled. Do note that a bowl on the ground also counts as an altar.
  • Titles are also granted to players who obtain certain sorcery powers. See chart below for more details.
  • In order to cast sorcery spells, activate a gem staff, right click your target, and choose the spell. Be mindful that sorcery spells cost karma.
  • Sorcery spells scale with mind logic just as priest spells scale with channeling
  • Casting sorcery spells uses between 500-750 karma per cast depending on the tome


Titles with item names are only available if that is the only item you have used. Using more than one item will always result in another title. (Table with tome title combinations is in progress).
