How to Get Past the Tutorial in SpellBreak
Most battle royale games require players to gather weapons, but Spellbreak doesn’t conform to this model. Instead, you’ll drop onto the ground and pick up gauntlets and runes, fighting with magic. It’s no wonder the developers require you to play through a tutorial to learn these systems. Keep on reading to find out how to move past the tutorial most efficiently.
How to Get Past the Tutorial in Spellbreak
The lengthy tutorial in Spellbreak serves to teach you how to fight other players in the game called Breakers. As there are nine steps in the tutorial, we’ll divide the guide into nine sections.
Section One – Basic Movement
You’ll learn how to move with WASD keys and use your mouse to look around. Your teacher, Avira Emberdane, will be with you every step of the tutorial. The first step is elementary, moving towards a waypoint Avira designates.
Section Two – Dodging and Levitating
You’ll teleport to the second stage, where Avira directs you to cross a gap. Here are the steps for levitating:
- Walk towards the gap up the stairs.
- Press and hold the Space bar, allowing you to jump and levitate.
- Float across the gap.
- Once you land, this step ends.
You can levitate across gaps if you have enough Mana. Without Mana, you’ll fall to your death, so you should be mindful of how much you have left at all times.
Section Three – Getting Acquainted With Gauntlets, Spells, and Sorceries
This stage is the part you may have been waiting for, learning how to fight with magic. Avira will let you use your fire gauntlet to shoot Fireball Spells at enemies. These enemies run from end to end, making it harder to hit them.
Using spells also costs Mana, so you’ll have to wait until you have enough before letting Fireballs loose again. Keep shooting until the two enemies are eliminated, or “Exiled” as the game refers to killing.
Next, Avira will set up three enemies further ahead. Move to her waypoint, and she’ll teach you about Sorceries. You’ll learn how to use them.
Sorceries have cooldowns and also cost Mana, which require skill and discipline to master. Use the Flamewall Sorcery to exile all three enemy mages. You’ll have to hold down the button to aim.
Once you exile the three mages, you complete Step 3 of the tutorial.
Section Four – Elements and How They React With Each Other
Avira will give you a Toxic Gauntlet, and you’ll wear it on your right hand. Here’s what will happen next:
- Once you equip the Toxic Gauntlet, you can use its Sorcery.
- Avira will rain down lightning from above, causing an Elemental Interaction.
- Use your primary Fire Gauntlet to shoot Fireballs to cause even more Elemental Interactions.
- After you cause these Interactions, you’ll complete this part of the tutorial.
The different elements interact with each other differently, and what you just saw are only two examples. As long as you have additional elements, you can keep causing Elemental Interactions.
Section Five – Using Runes
Runes are considered “equipment” and give you access to a third activated skill. These skills are primarily for utility and not dealing direct damage. In the tutorial, you’ll learn how to use a Wolf’s Blood Rune.
Avira will tell you to pick up the rune, and here’s what will happen after that:
- Press the Rune button, which is Shift by default.
- A wolf will howl, and you’ll find two opponents behind the walls.
- Get near them and exile them with your gauntlets.
After this, Avira will inform you that different Runes have different functions. You’ll complete this step in the tutorial once you eliminate both enemies.
Section Six – Talents and Scrolls for Upgrading Yourself
There are three categories for Talents, which are for optimizing your playstyle. You’ll find Scrolls for Mind, Body, and Spirit, the three categories. To upgrade a Talent, you must read a Scroll of the same category.
In the tutorial, Avira gives you one Scroll for each category, asking you to read them. Once you do so, she’ll explain what Scrolls are, and the following will happen:
- After you awaken your three talents, Avira will spawn an enemy mage nearby.
- Exile the enemy with your gauntlets.
- The enemy will drop a Mind Scroll.
- Read it to get your Mind Talent to a higher level.
- Avira will announce that you completed this step and teleport you away.
You can change Talents after you unlock more. Different classes have various unique Talents waiting for you to discover. Avira will tell you to mix and match Talents and use them to win.
Section Seven – Equipment and Consumables
Avira will give you Common Boots, a Common Belt, and a Common Amulet on this next island. Boots help you run faster, belts increase your Armor, and amulets let you retain more Mana. After this, you’ll experience the following events:
- Avira will drop better versions of the Equipment you just picked up.
- Pick up and equip the new items.
- Head to the waypoint Avira directs you to.
- Endure Avira’s attack.
- Pick up the Small Health Potion.
- Drink the potion to recover health.
- Pick up the Small Armor Shard and use it to recover Armor.
You’ll encounter better versions of Equipment and Consumables in the field, and you should get them as soon as possible.
Section Eight – Reviving Your Disrupted Teammates
When playing in Squads, your squadmates may get knocked down or “disrupted.” You can still revive them, as Avira explains. After you restore the Friendly Mage, this section ends.
You’ll also learn that while disrupted, enemy mages can exile them. It makes reviving them the first order of business if you can.
In addition, friendly fire is “on” in Spellbreak. Many of your attacks can damage your squadmates, so make sure to aim carefully.
Section Nine – Portals
The Portals in Spellbreak let you move to land regions quickly, but you still have to go to specific spots on foot. This last step consists of the following events:
- Avira will tell you to open your map.
- Once your map is open, move your mouse to the top-right corner.
- Select “Practice” to teleport to the Practice range.
- Land on the Practice Range and try out the various gauntlets, Runes, and more.
You can try all Classes here as well, and all gear is placed in convenient locations for you to try out.
Once you wish to move on, pause and exit the tutorial. You’ll be able to choose your first outfit after you leave the tutorial.
Mage to Mage
Once you’re familiar with how Spellbreak’s combat system works, you can start playing the game with friends or alone. The various systems can be overwhelming at first, so we recommend getting used to the multiple elements and Classes in tutorial mode. Knowledge is power, and if you can use it and win, the tutorial has fulfilled its purpose.
