Outward Wiki

Magic is one of the gameplay mechanics in Outward.


In Outward, Magic is not designed to be simple, it is ritualistic and deliberate. Most magical skills require mana to be cast, however there are a few exceptions (such as Frost Bullet and Gong Strike). Spells can be used as standalone abilities, however planning and combinations are required for the full potential of these abilities to be unleashed.
