Hellooo, I’m playing on the demo (wonderful idea btw) I would love to buy the game it seems like the community is a lot larger than it used to be but I refuse unless I can understand the casting better. I’ve asked around, I’ve looked at videos (old ones mainly but a few new-ish ones) and everything around casting seems to be speculation really… Obviously the etches on the pillars aren’t a good representation of what you need to do. I’ve noticed that there are “shortcuts” (glitches that will be patched?? or??) But above ALL else it seems like what is “need” for a spell to be considered as acceptable seems to be open to discussion… Has the devs released any detailed info on this at all? Or a hardcore player??
From what I’ve read there are quite a few things people consider to be accounted for and of course I’m sure some are old and now irrelevant and some are new and maybe not well known. Can anyone help clarify what the heck is going on behind the scene?
Things I’ve read/heard so far:
-The symbol you draw needs to be flat aka 2D (this confuses me b/c I’ve gotten MANY Firebolt 2 B’s that the bottom is slightly closer to me than the upwards part and it casts, or the whole B is rather curved if you looked at it from the side. So if this is the case, how much margin is there given for error here?)
-The angle of your headset in relation to the spell, meaning if your spell is flat on a table you need to look straight down or it fails no matter how perfect (Seems to be a new mechanic yes?? This seems to be my biggest problem as I wear my headset kinda slanted and I’m sure I look down anyways)
-Portions (again how much room for error because sometimes you can cast a B with the top curve further extended than bottom and it casts and vise-versa)
I feel like there were a few others as well but I can’t seem to remember/find them anyways sorry for such a long post but I don’t understand how repetition is going to help if I don’t have a clue where I need to improve on or even what there is to improve on. Any video/forum/image links that already explain all this have eluded me so if one exists I’m terribly sorry and eternally greatfull to whom ever provides a link.
