Many units have magical Abilities, which can be activated in battles. To access them, select a unit with a magical ability and look for its icon above the Battle Army Panel on the user interface. Some abilities require target selection. When you activate these, the cursor will change into a magical wand. To use the ability, move it over a target and then click the left mouse button once again. If you wish to cancel the target selection, right click anywhere, or left click the icon of the ability again. If the activate ability has a limited duration, its icon will appear in the ‘Own Abilities in Effect’ list at the side of the screen, with a countdown timer showing its remaining duration.
All abilities have a cooldown value, which determines how soon they can be used again. This is displayed as a countdown timer in the activation icon.
