Dark (affinity)

From Kovopedia, the Magical Vacation wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

"The dark star's path is difficult. Its magic steals HP from enemies."

Dark is a magic affinity in Magical Starsign. It is a purely offensive attribute, able to negate hit points recovery with curse. When cast from the back row, dark magic and its additional effects are distributed randomly. The protagonist can be assigned the dark affinity at the beginning of the game, and Pooka possesses it naturally, gaining aura when Shadra is active at night.
