Magic is a skill in Rune Factory 2: A Fantasy Harvest Moon

The protagonist in Rune Factory 2 can cast spells by finding and reading magic books. They can also spend Rune Points (RP) to empower tools and weapons. The effectiveness of a magical spell is determined by the Magic Attack and Intelligence Statistics.

Magic Books

Finding Fireball.png

The protagonist can find, upgrade and use a great number of magic books. Most spells are offensive, but there are also Music Books which lets a companion monster use their special ability. Only Spell Books contribute toward the Magic skill.

Kyle has access to only two magic books: Fireball and Special Concerto. In the second generation, Aaron and Aria can find missing pages by completing quests, searching, and expanding the school. These pages can be used to assemble and power up more magic books.

Spell Books

Magic books enable healing and offensive spells, which can be used to defeat monsters in dungeons. They become more powerful as the missing pages are restored. Missing pages are only available in the second generation. To repair a magic book, bring the book and the pages to Mana at the school during class time. Books can only be repaired in order, so you must repair page 1 before you can add page 2.
