Wizards have a wide variety of powerful attack spells at their disposal, not to mention different types of buff/debuff magic. Although they can generate staggering amounts of spell damage, Wizards have limited hit points and are physically frail. However, their high intelligence gives them a great deal of defense power against magical attacks.

Equipment

Wizards can only equip Staves, the Rusty Knife and cloth armor. In their offhand slot Wizards can equip Bracelets and Necklaces.

Skill Trees

Skill Trees are the basis of leveling and customizing your character in NEStalgia. The skill tree menu unlocks at level 5 and at that point the player will be able to customize their character with available skill points. There are two ways to gain additional points:

  • Gain an experience level, which grants one point.
  • Progress through the plot of the game, which grants one point after completing the main quest connected to Verity's lighthouse and an additional point after completing the main quest connected to the Arctic's ice palace.

As of v1.68 this allows for a maximum of 30 points to spend.
