Their duration, resource gain, mana-cost, and mana regeneration speed can be altered by getting specific Faction, Heritage, Challenge, or Research upgrades. Different aspects of the spells can also be used in other upgrades (eg: while a spell is active, the number of spell casts, based on mana produced, etc.).Spells are not cast while offline, but purchasing the autocasting upgrades allow "Mana produced (This game)", the "Spells casted (This game)" and spell activity time stats to keep growing while offline, at a vastly reduced rate.
The trick to use spells efficiently relies on finding the best setup: Which spell combination to cast, at what timing, with which automatic-casting tool, and where to set the contingency arrow. Like for upgrades, these choices can make a crucial difference for your game progress.
In Realm Grinder, the spells can be classified in three types:
- Default spells - which are always available.
- Aligned spells - which appear when the player chooses an alignment.
- Faction spells - which appear when the player allies with a Faction.
These terms are mostly used for perk description purposes.

Tier Spell Upgrades (R42+) Edit
From R42, for each spell besides tax collection, 6 tier spell upgrades becomes available. Each tier gives 1 additional spell cast, and with all tiers combined, allows to cast one spell up to 6 times simultaneously. Each Tier will require double the amount of mana as the previous one, and they do not seem to affect spell activity time, neither online nor offline.
Tier upgrade names starts with the default spell's name followed by the tier number, starting from 2 to 6. (e.g.: Holy Light 2, Holy Light 3, etc.)
Once tier spell upgrades are bought, you will need to use the Tiered Autocasting to set the amount of tier casts you wish, or else the spells will remain at tier 1.
Note: you only need to unlock the tiers for each spell once, but you need to buy the tiers with coins/FC at every abdication. Also note that what counts for unlocking a tier is the total time (i.e, you need roughly 15 days to unlock tiers 1-6, as opposed to 15 days of spell activity after unlocking tier 5 in order to unlock tier 6), so it's more beneficial to unlock a spell up to tier 6 whenever possible.
|Unlock & Cost Formulas |
|Unlocking Tier Spell upgrades requires spell activity time (Active Time Total in the spell tool-tips).

Automatic Casting Edit
Spells can be cast by clicking the spell button, using keyboard shortcuts (hotkeys n°1-6 in visual order from top to bottom) or automated using the automatic casting tools obtainable through the upgrades listed here below.
|Automatic Casting Upgrades|
|Automatic Casting||100 B (1E11)||60,000 Mana Produced (Total)||Allows autocasting of spells by CTRL+Clicking them. While you have at least 1 spell in autocasting mode, your mana regen rate is reduced by 50%.
|Improved Autocasting||200 Qi (2E20)||2M Mana Produced (Total)||Reduces mana regeneration penalty to -25%.
|Masterful Autocasting||300 Oc (3E29)||6M Mana Produced (Total)||Totally removes mana regeneration penalty.
|Priority Autocasting||400 Ud (4E38)||12M Mana Produced (Total)||Allows you to prioritize the order of spell casting.
Spells with lower priority will be cast only if the higher priority spells are already active.
Only while offline, increase your spells cast amount by 1 per minute.
|Contingency Autocasting||500 Qad (5E47)||20M Mana Produced (Total)||Allows you to set a minimum amount of mana before starting to Autocast. A slide bar will appear on the mana bar when you CTRL+Click: |
By adjusting its height you will set a minimum amount of mana for spells to start casting. Once your mana reaches the threshold, spells will follow the priority rules. The contingency loop will break when there is not enough mana to continue, at which point the cycle will reset.
|Planned Autocasting||600 Spd (6E56)||30M Mana Produced (Total)||Allows you to set Primary and Secondary spells. Primary spells (Set with CTRL+Click) will fire when the mana reaches amount set by the Contingency slidebar. Secondary spells (Set with SHIFT+Click) will fire as soon as there is enough mana, and if ALL the primary spells are active.
|Efficient Autocasting||700 Vg (7E65)||50M Mana Produced (Total)||Allows you to set spells to work outside of contingency and planned settings. These spells (set with CTRL+SHIFT+Click) disregard your contingency rules and are cast as soon as you have enough mana for them.
|Tiered Autocasting||800 Vg (8E65)||R42 +
200M (2E8) Mana Produced (Total)
|For Tier spell upgrades: Allows you to set the maximum tier you wish to autocast each spell to. In the spell tooltip, use the diamond icon to change its mode until you get to the desired maximum tier number. Spells will still follow their previous priority rules.
Note that auto-casting Tax Collection should be set as last spell, if at all. As it is the cheapest and has no duration, it will use up all the mana, and never leave enough for the other spells to be cast.
Offline Spell Casting Edit
While offline, Spells set on autocast:
- will not be cast, instead, a generic non-specific spell will increase your "Spell Casts" entry in the stats.
- will gain "Active Time (This game)" based on their duration, cost and online mana regeneration rate.
|Offline Activity Time Gain Formula|
|Formula: t * min(1, m * d / (c1.5 * n)), where t is offline time, m is online mana regen per second, d is spell duration, c is spell mana cost, and n is number of spells set to autocast|
For Spells to work offline, you need:
- Offline Mana Regen Upgrades (such as included in the 'Automatic auto-casting' upgrade)
- Offline Spell Casting Upgrades (such as included in the 'Priority Auto-casting' upgrade)
The bonuses are additional. The total bonus of all the offline auto-casting upgrades is 10 spell casts per minute and 90% of your online mana regeneration rate.
- Tax Collection is counted for the number of spells set to autocast but no production will be gained from it being set to autocast offline.
- If any Brainwave cast time remains when going offline, it will simply continue until finished.

- ↑ If you have CtA tier 5 but not enough mana to cast all 5 tiers at once, the game will cast them when it can. eg: In the middle of CtA T1, it will start CtA T2, then CtA T3... and each time, the timer will get reset. All tiers combined, this results in fewer but longer casts. (which is not an advantage as you will also have longer inactivity time between the spell casts.)
