Magic Arrow

Magic Arrow

Nothing special to note, very minimal damage.

Appearance: Appears as a blue/white trail of sparkes, looks very similar to Energy Bolt on EC.

Clumsy

Clumsy

Cost: 4 Mana
Description: Temporarily reduces target's Dexterity.
Notes:

Debuffs the target's Dexterity stat based on the pet's Evaluate Intelligence skill.

Appearance: Clumsy appears as a spiral of purple over the target.

Feeblemind

Feeblemind

Cost: 4 Mana
Description: Temporarily reduces target's Intelligence.

Appearance: Weaken appears as a group of purple sparkles over the target.

Harm

Harm

Cost: 6 Mana
Description: Affects the target with a chilling effect, dealing Cold damage. The closer the target is to the caster, the more damage is dealt.
Notes:

Nothing special to note, minimal damage with a damage increase the closer your pet is to the target.

Appearance: Appears as a red circle around the target, with a blue starburst in the center.

Agility

Agility

Cost: 6 Mana
Description: Temporarily increases target's Dexterity.
Notes:

Magery Mastery pets have bugged AI with Agility, they will only buff their target and not themselves.

Appearance: Appears as a spiraling blue/white effect over the target.

Cunning
Cunning

 

Cost: 6 Mana
Description: Temporarily increases target's Intelligence.
Notes:

Magery Mastery may or may not cast Cunning. They cast all other stat buffs, but in my testing I have not seen them cast Cunning. If they do, it will most likely be bugged like the other beneficial buffs.

Appearance: Appears as a spiraling blue/white effect over the target.

Strength

Strength

Cost: 6 Mana
Description: Temporarily increases target's Strength.
Notes:

Magery Mastery pets have bugged AI with Strength, they will only buff their target and not themselves.

Appearance: Appears as a multicolored sparkles over the target.

Bless
Bless
Cost: 9 Mana
Description: Temporarily increases target's Strength, Dexterity, and Intelligence.
Notes:

Magery Mastery pets have bugged AI with Bless, they will only buff their target and not themselves.

Appearance: Bless appears as blue orbs/sparkles around the target.

Fireball

 

Fireball

Cost: 9 Mana
Description: Shoots a ball of roiling flames at a target, dealing Fire Damage.
Notes:

Magery Mastery pets may not cast Fireball. The spell should technically be in the pet's rotation, but I have yet to see it cast an actual Fireball in my testing.

Appearance: Fireball appears as a ball of fire that flies from your pet to your target.

Poison
Poison
Cost: 9 Mana
Description: The target is afflicted by poison, of a strength determined by the caster's Magery and Poison skills, and the distance from the target.
Notes:

Magery Mastery pets will cast the Poison spell on their targets. The Poison skill does affect the potency of the Poison, if your pet has innate Poisoning, or you trained Poisoning first, then switched to Magery Mastery.

Appearance: Poison appears as a green cloud over your target.

Arch Cure
Arch Cure
Cost: 11 Mana
Description: Neutralizes poisons on all characters within a small radius around the caster.
Notes:

Arch Cure appears to be extremely bugged with the Magery Mastery AI. If the pet is poisoned, it will repeatedly attempt to Arch Cure its target and not itself.

Appearance:  Arch Cure appears as a swirling line of green spiraling around your target.

Greater Heal
Greater Heal
Cost: 11 Mana
Description: Heals the target for a medium amount of lost Hit Points.
Notes:

Magery Mastery pets will only cast Greater Heal on themselves, but at an extremely low priority. I would not rely on the pet to heal itself at all.

Appearance: Greater Heal appears as a swirling blue/white light that spirals around your pet.

Curse
Curse
Cost: 11 Mana
Description: Lowers the Strength, Dexterity, and Intelligence of the target. When cast during PvP combat the spell also reduces the target's maximum resistance values.
Notes:

Magery Mastery pets will cast curse on their target, which can be quite potent.

Appearance: Curse appears as several light green orbs that swirl around the target.

Lightning
Lightning
Cost: 11 Mana
Description: Strikes the target with a bolt of lightning, which deals Energy damage.
Notes:

Nothing special to note, minimal damage.

Appearance: Lightning appears as a lightning bolt over your target.

Magic Reflection
Magic Reflection
Cost: 14 Mana
Description: Lowers the caster's Physical resistance, while increasing their Elemental resistances. Active until the spell is deactivated by recasting on the same target.
Notes:

Magery Mastery pets will cast Magic Reflection on themselves. Magic Reflection will apply the following on the pet:

-20 Physical Resist
+10 Fire Resist
+10 Cold Resist
+10 Poison Resist
+10 Energy Resist

Some view this as a negative, but it can actually be beneficial on the right encounters. With Consume Damage, you don't always need extremely high physical resistance on your pet since Consume is powered by physical damage. Depending on your pet's other resists, this can give you up to 90 in the other 4 resists.

You can also mount your pet to remove this effect, but they will most likely cast it on themselves again.

Appearance: Magic Reflection appears as a yellow circle over your pet.

Paralyze
Paralyze
Cost: 14 Mana
Description: Immobilizes the target for a brief amount of time. The target's Resisting Spells skill affects the duration of the immobilization.
Notes:

Magery Mastery pets will cast Paralyze, though it is often resisted due to the high Resisting Spells of most bosses in the game.

Appearance: Appears as a pulsing blue circle over the target.

Energy Bolt
Energy Bolt
Cost: 20 Mana
Description: Fires a bolt of magical force at the target, dealing Energy damage.
Notes:

Magery Mastery pets will cast Energy Bolt at their target for moderate damage.

Appearance: Energy Bolt appears as a trail of white/blue sparkles that start at your pet and fly to the target.

Explosion
Explosion
Cost: 20 Mana
Description: Strikes the target with an explosive blast of energy, dealing Fire damage.
Notes:

Magery Mastery pets will cast Explosion on their target. The damage is slightly delayed after casting it, and it usually cast alongside Flamestrike as a combo.

Appearance: Explosion appears as a fiery burst from the target once it detonates.

Flamestrike
Flamestrike
Cost: 40 Mana
Description: Envelopes the target in a column of magical flame that deals Fire damage.
Notes:

Magery Mastery pets will cast Flamestrike on their target. Flamestrike is usually cast immediately after Explosion to create a spell combo. 

Appearance: Flamestrike appears as a pillar of fire over the target.

Mana Vampire
Mana Vampire
Cost: 40 Mana
Description: Drains mana from the target and transfers it to the caster. The amount of mana drained is determined by a comparison between the caster's Evaluate Intelligence skill and the target's Resisting Spells skill.
Notes:

Magery Mastery pets will cast Mana Vampire on their target when they are running low on mana. It can be quite potent against low Resisting Spells.

Appearance: Mana Vampire appears as a black and blue cloud over your pet.

Teleport
 
Cost: 9 Mana
Description: Caster is transported to the target location.
Notes:

Magery Mastery pets will often teleport to targets that are aggressing them from a distance.

Pets will not Teleport to player targets (PvP).

Appearance: No effect, other than your pet teleporting.

Death Ray
Death Ray
Cost: 50 Mana, 35 Upkeep
Description: The mage focuses a death ray on their opponent which snares the mage to their location and does damage based on magery skill, evaluating intelligence skill, and mastery level as long as the mage has mana and the target is in range.
Notes:

Magery Mastery pets will cast Death Ray upon their targets, and like a player, it will continuously channel until the pet is out of mana or interrupted.

Appearance: Death Ray appears as light red sparkles over your pet during every tick.
