Magicka represents the total amount of spells a character or creature can cast before being incapable of performing any more. Should the bar reach below the spell's requirement, said spell cannot be cast until the caster's Magicka has sufficiently replenished.
Starting magicka starts at 200 points and it only increases by ten points per player's choice each level. Magicka increases beyond its base value when certain enchanted items are equipped and if certain abilities or a certain spell is currently active. It may also increase magicka recovery, as an increase in magicka gain per second is based off of amount of magic and the level of the character.
Magicka can be restored by leveling up, completing a job, quest, or abyss run, by being defeated in an arena match or through use of:
