Creating a new mantra

Introduction

As mentioned in about the game, Treasure of the Rudras features a magic system (called the 'mantra' system) where you can create magic spells by entering words up to six characters. You have complete freedom to create any spell you want! Right in the beginning, you could equip yourself with the game's strongest spells - although you wouldn't have enough MP for them, ha! You could even create spells with dirty words and profanity. It's a neat, unique magic system. Most spells aren't useful, though. There's an underlying framework behind it, which I will explain in this guide.

Adding a new mantra is simple. At any point in the game where you can pause to access the menu, select “Enscribe”. From there you can either select an empty slot to add a new mantra, or select an existing mantra to edit or remove it. That's it! View the animation toward the right for a preview of this process.

Basics

🔥 Ig (Fire)
🌊 Aqu (Water)
🌪️ Teo (Wind)
🌩️ Tou (Lightning)
☀️ Soa (Light)
🌑 Sere (Dark)

The basic elements are Lef (Healing), Ig (Flame), Aqu (Water), Teo (Wind), Tou (Lightning), Soa (Light) and Sere (Dark). These elements have a delicate balance in the Treasure of the Rudras universe. Look to the right of this paragraph:

Fire is weak against Water and Water is weak against fire. For example, if you're wearing fire-aligned armor then you will be weak against water attacks. But if you're wearing water-aligned armor then you will be weak against fire attacks. Get the idea? You don't have to memorize that table because it's also in the game's equip menu to let you know what elements your characters are strong/weak against once they equip a certain weapon/armor/accessory. And then there's Nihi (Void) and Pra (Earth); these elements have no weaknesses.

General Mantras

Spells in Treasure of the Rudras are called mantras. Creating a mantra with the elemental name by itself creates the weakest mantra possible for that element. Adding a suffix makes it stronger and consumes more MP. There are lots of suffixes in the game. Other Treasure of the Rudras fans might beg to differ, but I believe the best suffixes are ~na, ~rex, ~nates, and ~god.

The following table lists all the basic elements with the suffixes.
