Chosen Talents

The common theme you should be looking for in talents for a pure offensive caster build is anything that essentially alters or changes a spells functionality and quite drastically or simply boosts your damage output.

You can take these in any order you like according to your level, it will not matter overall how you do it. Just do what you feel you need more at the time. Keep in mind the last 3 levels are very difficult to achieve and it is likely that most players will never see lvl 40.

Room of Requirement:

:Edurus Potion Potency
Maxima Potion Potency
Focus Potion Potency

1 Preference Point – Spend this point at your leisure.

The preference points I would either put into Thunderbrew Potency or use the other point for a defensive-ancient magic build-up in core. If you’re more inclined for a defensive in core instead of Thunderbrew then by all means go for it. Do not take ancient magic build-up on basic attacks on an airbourne enemy. You will not be using basic attacks much if at all when you’ve gained most your spells and you will want to hit them with a spell rather than a basic attack when they are vulnerable unless you’re just buying time on cooldowns which is rare when using all spells.

How do I use this build and how do I get better as a player? (Basic Combat Advice)

That’s entirely up to you, I’ve given you the information to bring your numbers up as high as possible through level talents and to ensure you do not make a mistake in becoming as powerful as you can possibly be through magic and magic buffs alone. How you use this build or use your equipment talents is entirely up to you.

I can tell you though if you are struggling with cooldown management and how to set your spell slots this build has the necessary tools to overcome that. Use Edurus potions while in combat and you are setting your spell slots to get a feel for what is most comfortable for you. As for cooldown management use Focus potions and try not to spam spells, using them in solid and fluid combos. You’ll find standard cooldown management much easier after a while of practicing.

I’m going to show you how I set my spell slots down here. Typically you’ll want one of each colour in each additional spell slot so you’re prepared for anything in each slot while others are on cooldown with the exception of unforgivables. Of course you’ll typically want the spells to combo well together too.

The format is as follows for buttons:
1 Xbox Controller
2 Playstations Controller
3 Keyboard

Spell Slot 1 (Up)

Glacius (X) (Square) (4)
Diffindo (Y) (Triangle) (1)
Accio (A) (X) (3)
Incedio (B) (Circle) (2)

Spell Slot 2 (Right)

Arresto Momentum (X) (Square) (4)
Confringo (Y) (Triangle) (1)
Descendo (A) (X) (3)
Bombarda (B) (Circle) (2)

Spell Slot 3 (Down)

Transformation (X) (Square) (4)
Expelliarmus (Y) (Triangle) (1)
Levio (A) (X) (3)
Depulso (B) (Circle) (2)

Spell Slot 4 (Left)

Crucio (X) (Square) (4)
Avada Kedavra (Y) (Triangle) (1)
Flipendo (A) (X) (3)
Imperio (B) (Circle) (2)

This is completely subjective and is comfortable for me to use while using an Xbox controller. I highly encourage you all to find your own layouts for spell slots that work for you as some of my slots may not feel intuitive to many of you.

You will notice no utility spell is set at all in my bars since they are easy to switch in and out when needed 1 by 1, just a small problem we have to contend with mastering and wanting to use every single offensive spell.


Congratulations if you have achieved all the points required for this build. You are likely a walking magical nuke at this point even on the hardest difficulty. Well done.
