Is there a guide on combat mechanics and spell?

    Hey there, just wondering if any good guides are available that has a better desription on the different spell effects other than the vague in game descriptions? Also on how different situations effect combat e.g. smokebombs, blindness, lighting and so on.

    Possibly some of it is covered in the manual? I really can't remember. The combat page on the wiki seems a little limiting to be honest.

    A fairly simple way to test spells out is to download the Virgil Debug cheat menu (see the download section here, then Arcanum -> Arcanum Hacks) and have a play around with them - you can mark all locations and teleport to a combat heavy area to get a better feel than the wimpy monsters at the Crash Site. You can then uninstall the menu if you don't want it permanently in the game (just move it out of the Arcanum folder).
