Spell-Casting Delay

Each category of magic has a separate recast timer, while the automaton also has a universal recast timer which determines the minimum time between any two spells being cast.

  • ~12 second universal delay.
  • ~12 second Enfeebling delay.
  • ~?? second Healing delay (Cures).



  • Remains stationary when deployed within ~15 yalms of the target, if deployed outside this range the automaton will close to melee distance.
  • Magic is only used when attached to the Stormwaker or Harlequin Frame.


Spells and Enemy HP% Verification Needed

The casting AI changes based on the current targets health.

Enemy HP% Default Casting Priority

75% - 50% Bio IIPoison only.
Other spells cannot be triggered.
50% - 0% Cure IV only.
Other spells cannot be triggered.
  • If bio II is not available, the automaton will cast the highest DoT available: dia < bio < dia II < bio II
  • If unable to cast Cure IV the automaton will cast the highest Cure possible depending on skill and mp.
