MP and Spending It

You don't spend MP to cast spells in 13th Element, so I thought, "Hey, if MP isn't going to be used for casting, why the heck can't I use it for something else?"

ANYWAYS, whenever:
    a spell is added to your spellbook and you are that specific card's first owner, (buying 'retail' doesn't count) or you have used 250 forces in casting spells, (resets) or you win a special event which grants you it,
you earn 1 MP.

When you earn MP you can
  • Save them for later use
  • Gamble them for a chance to




    • earn a Primary Force card (1/3 chance at 1 MP spent, max spend 10)
    • earn a Secondary Force Card (1/4 chance at 1 MP spent, max spend 15)
    • earn an Innate Force card (1/5 chance at 1 MP spent, max spend 20)
    • earn an Order Force card (1/6 chance at 1 MP spent, max spend 25)
    • earn a Nexus Force card (1/7 chance at 1 MP spent, max spend 30)
  • Spend them to




      purchase a Type I spell slot (costs 1 MP)
    • purchase a Type II spell slot (costs 3 MP)
    • purchase a Type III spell slot (costs 5 MP)
    • purchase a Type IV spell slot (costs 7 MP)
    • purchase a Type V spell slot (costs 9 MP)
      Although there is no cost to cast a spell, you must put it in a spell slot.
      Until they are used, what is in a spell slot can be changed.
      Once used, you have to wait 4 hours before you can change the slot again.
      --Type-------Casting time reduced by---------Required Level Spell
      ----I-----------------0 seconds-----------------------1 or greater
      ----II----------------5 seconds-----------------------3 or greater
      ----III---------------10 seconds----------------------5 or greater
      ----IV---------------15 seconds----------------------7 or greater
      ----V----------------20 seconds----------------------9 or greater
      Every slot not used reduces your status's maximums by 1
      Every instance of the same spell with the same level in the same slot type reduces your status's maximums by 1.
  • Spend them to earn




    • Long Cast skill (costs 2)
    • Wide Cast skill (costs 4)
    • Split Cast skill (costs 6)
