The Overlight book has a number of average-power attacks and contains a variety of healing and shielding spells.
Some spells deal Light damage which deals double damage to undead minions and Liches.
|Icon||Spell||Level||Type||Number of Charges||Charge Time Initial/Recharge||Destruction Radius||Maximum Damage||Description|
|Protection Shield||1||Personal||Infinite||0/5||N/A||N/A||This shield absorbs 50 damage for the caster. Stackable. Is dissapated by drowning, or sanctuary.|
|Sky Ray||2||Targeted||Infinite||3/5||Medium||50 Light||A beam of light shoots vertically down from the sky towards the targeted area. It's unaffected by gravity, or deflecting shields/clouds.|
|Shining Bolt||1||Ball||Infinite||0/1||Small||45 Light||Less affected by gravity than most projectiles. (Power is multiplied by 2)|
|Rising Star||2||Targeted||1||5/-||Massive||300 Light||Over a period of five turns, an increasing number of stars is dropped in the general area, starting at one and ending at four (small stars deal 25 each). On the fifth turn, an extra-large star which deals 50 damage (and blows up really, really big), will land exactly where it was aimed. These stars can be easily deflected by English Summer or Blizzard clouds, or Shields.|
|Summon Pegasus||1||Minion||Infinite||3/5||N/A||N/A||Summons a Pegasus. Pegasi are flying, mountable minions. A Paladin, or a Dark Knight from the underdark spellbook can also mount Pegasi.|
|Summon Paladin||2||Minion||1||5/-||N/A||N/A||Summons a Paladin. Although he has terrible jumping abilities, he can mount the pegasus.|
|Forest Seed||1||Targeted||Infinite||0/5||N/A||N/A||Creates a magical tree at the target location. The tree absorbs damage and blocks projectiles, then becomes a normal part of the terrain, but can be drained for health.|
|Summon Pixies||2||Minion||Infinite||0/5||N/A||N/A||Summoned in groups of three. The pixies can sacrifice themselves to teleport its arcanist or his/her minions to the pixies location.|
|Sphere of Healing||1||Ball||Infinite||0/1||N/A||-25 Light||Heals instead of damaging. Hurts undead creatures and liches for up to 50 damage, with high knockback to undead enemies. (Power is multiplied by 2)|
|Castle of Light||2||Tower||1||0/-||Small||75hp||This tower heals the player inside it for 10 health points every turn.|
|Invulnerability Shield||3||Personal||1||5/-||N/A||N/A||This shield blocks all damage to the caster for 3 turns. It breaks after three turns, if the caster casts a spell, is knocked into the water or if Sanctuary's aura dissipates it. Note that moving your minions and using their abilities does not count as the caster casting a spell.|
|Shining Power||3||Personal||1||5/-||N/A||N/A||Gives the caster wings for permanent flight. The caster is restricted to arcane and Overlight spells. The caster cannot use towers. The caster will also heal 10 hit points 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 any Protection shield (anymore).
The familiar for the complete Overlight book is the Cherub. Each time it is charged, it allows the player to gain 1 health worth of shield (similar to the Protection Shield spell) per turn, up to 5 hp of shield per turn when charged to Level 5, to a maximum of 50 hp worth of shields. No shielding beyond 50 will be added by the cherub.
