Mystic Missile (A)



Magnus fires a magic missile in the target direction, dealing crystal damage to the first target hit. Hitting an enemy with Arcane Mark scatters the missile, dealing crystal damage to all nearby enemies.

Chrono Driver (B)



Magnus sends a disc of time in the target direction that returns to him, dealing crystal damage to all targets it passes through. Enemies with Arcane Mark are briefly...
