Splash Attack

"Dark Pillars"

Element: Non-Elemental

Max Hits: 1 per upgrade level (Max 7)

Damage/Hit: Base Magic Damage x 0.5

Dark energy bursts up from the ground in front of you. Each upgrade level adds another burst of darkness in front of the previous ones. It does damage to all enemies based on their defense. At. high levels, it makes short work of most bosses.

Magic Projectile

"Dark Shot"

Element: Dark (aka Non-Elemental)

Damage: Base Magic Damage

Shoots a dark projectile that moves faster than normal. The non-immunity follows through with this spell as well. Very effective against bosses and the Evil Wizard's minions.

Elemental Infusion

"Armor Pierce"

Element: Non-Elemental

Damage: (Base Magic Damage)2 + (Base Melee Damage)2

Use Xbox360 Button XXbox360 Button XXbox360 Button XXbox360 Button Y / PS3 SquarePS3 SquarePS3 SquarePS3 Triangle to perform. This attack pierces armor, and it deals two times normal damage. That means it deals as much damage to a Barbarian or Thief on normal mode as it does to a Stove Face or Cult Minion on Insane Mode.

Magic Jump

"Pillar of Darkness"

Element: Dark (aka Non-Elemental)

Damage: Base Magic Damage

Jumps with a dark magic boost and does damage to overlapped enemies.
