Koudelka casting Flare

Magic in Koudelka works differently than in the main series.

Unlike the Shadow Hearts games, magic can only be improved by repeated use, with each spell gaining experience points, to progress to the next level. Certain spells are gated behind bosses, requiring them to be defeated before the player can use them.

All characters are able to cast spells, however, Koudelka and James are more geared towards magic, stat-wise.

Defensive Magic

The player begins with Heal, and it becomes a mainstay for the rest of the game. The two other defensive spells can only be accessed after defeating certain bosses.

Levelling the Heal and Revive spells increases both the amount healed and the range of the spell. Reflect does not increase in range, but the effect duration lasts longer.

And while not its primary use, as Heal is a Light elemental spell, it can also damage Dark aligned enemies if they are targetted.

De/Fortifying Magic

[edit | edit source]

The Fortify spells pull double duty during gameplay acting as both a buff for allies, and a debuff for enemies; targeting an ally will boost an Action Point (AP) stat, but targeting an enemy with the same spell will automatically debuff that stat.

The amount of AP boost/decrease is fixed per the level of the spell:

  • Level 1 = x3 AP
  • Level 2 = x6 AP
  • Level 3 = x9 AP
