Overlight Book.png

The Book of Overlight has a number of average-power attacks and contains a variety of healing and shielding spells. It eclipses other books in the late game through its innate ability to achieve flight permanently.


Icon Spell Tier Type Number of Charges Initial Charge Time/Recharge Maximum Damage Description
Protection Shield.png Protection Shield 1 Personal Infinite 0/5 N/A This shield absorbs 50 damage for the caster and is Stackable. Is dissipated instantly by drowning, or through Sanctuary.
Sky Ray.png Sky Ray 2 Targeted Infinite 3/5 50 Light A beam of light shoots vertically down from the sky towards the targeted area. It's unaffected by gravity, or deflecting shields/cloud effects, and even penetrates through Static Ball/Static Shield.
Shining Bolt.png Shining Bolt 1 Ball Infinite 0/1 45 Light Less affected by gravity than most projectiles (Power is multiplied by 2).
Rising Star.png Rising Star 2 Targeted 1 5/- 125 + 10 x25 = 575 Light Over a period of five turns, an increasing number of stars is dropped in the general area, starting at turn one and ending at four (small stars deal 45 each). On the fifth turn, an extra-large star which deals 125 damage (and creates a big explosion), will land exactly where it was aimed. These stars can be deflected easily by English Summer, Blizzard, or Storm clouds, and shields.
Summon Pegasus.png Summon Pegasus 1 Minion Infinite 3/5 N/A Summons a Pegasus. Pegasi are flying, mountable minions. A Paladin, Dark Knight, or a Recall Device from the can also mount a Pegasus.
Summon Paladin.png Summon Paladin 2 Minion 1 5/- N/A Summons a Paladin. Although he has terrible jumping abilities, he can mount the Pegasus.
Forest Seed.png Forest Seed 1 Targeted Infinite 1/5 75hp, loses 15hp each turn Creates a magical tree at the target location. The tree absorbs damage, blocks projectiles and can be drained for health while glowing, then becomes a normal part of the terrain.
Summon Pixies.png Summon Pixies 2 Minion Infinite 0/5 N/A Summoned in groups of three. The pixies can sacrifice themselves to teleport a player or his/her minions to the pixies location.
Sphere of Healing.png Sphere of Healing 1 Ball Infinite 0/1 -25 Light Heals instead of damaging. Hurts undead creatures and liches for up to 50 damage, with medium knockback to undead enemies. (Power is multiplied by 2)
Castle of Light.png Castle of Light 2 Tower 1 0/- 75hp This tower heals the player inside it for 10 health points every turn.
Invulnerability Shield.png Invulnerability Shield 3 Personal 1 5/- N/A This shield blocks all damage to the caster for 3 turns. It breaks after three turns, if the caster casts a spell, knocked into water or if Sanctuary's aura dissipates it. Note: Moving your minions and using their abilities does not count as the caster casting a spell.
Shining Power.png Shining Power 3 Personal 1 5/- N/A Gives the caster wings for permanent flight. However, the caster is restricted to Arcane and Overlight spells and cannot use towers. The caster will heal 10hp per turn after casting the spell. This can stack with the familiar's ability to overall increase your protection by 15 each turn. Note: You can still be flashed normally if you do not have Protection Shield active.


Cherub.png The familiar for the Book of Overlight is the Cherub. Each time it is charged, it allows the player to gain 1HP worth of shield (similar to the Protection Shield spell) per turn, up to 5HP of shield per turn when charged to Level 5, to a maximum of 50HP worth of shields by the cherub. You can still go over 50HP using the Protection Shield.

Familiar specific changes:

  • Level 5: Shining Bolt does 55 damage. Sunder can do 100 damage. Rising Star has a 5 turn cooldown.
