Deepwoken is a permadeath, anime-style experience that offers a highly customizable magic system called mantras, which can be changed or enhanced by using modifiers and sparks.
In this guide, we will go through all of the known mantra modifiers and sparks, what their effects are ways to obtain them.
What Are Mantra Modifiers and Sparks?
Mantra Modifiers and Sparks allow you to modify, enhance or augment your mantras. Each modifier offers a unique attribute to improve your mantra, and are mainly found by gripping (killing) enemies, and in chests.
Modifiers can be used on any type of mantra, while sparks can only be used with specific mantras.
Deepwoken Mantra Modifiers
Mantra modifiers allow you to add up to three modifiers to a mantra, including their weaker version (six in total.) The more modifiers that are used, the higher your Ether cost is going to be.
Cloudstone increases your mantra size or quantity, such as making beam-styled moves larger.
This modifier can be obtained from bandit NPC drops. Bandits that drop this item are found all throughout Erisia and are normally sitting by a campfire. They can be defeated with an M1 combo and grip, and are relatively easy to take out.
This modifier is the upgraded version of Cloudstone.
Stratus Stone can be found as a drop from Sharko monsters, which are located in The Depths, or in a cave in Erisia called The Viper’s Jaw.
To reach The Viper’s Jaw, exit the town’s gates and take a left. Following along the beach you will find an entrance with red grass and red-leafed trees. Then, take two lefts, go up a ledge of stairs, and then follow the path to the cave.
It is recommended to have at least 10 agility before taking on the Sharkos.
This modifier has the ability to increase your mantra’s range, giving your attacks a wider reach.
