Description


A magic circle is one of the 3 required components of a ghost trap, along with a mechanism and bait.

Stats


Like trap mechanisms, a magic circle has two primary attributes to consider:

  • Raw power: The strength of your trap. To trap a ghost your power must be higher than the ghost's scare factor. Be aware that there will be random effects when trying to catch a ghost (we call that "luck and chance").
  • Mystic power: Mystic power represents the chance to trap a ghost regardless of its scare factor. Some ghosts can only be caught with a high mystic power. Other ghosts are resistant to mystic power, and can not be caught with a high-mystic power setup.

Your magic circle can contribute either raw power or mystic power or both to your trap, along with a huge variety of other stats.

Use the magic circles compared page to figure out which magic circle is strongest in the stats that support your current goals.

Acquiring magic circles


You get new magic circles either by buying one from the Laboratory or building one from components collected in the game.

New players are automatically give the white candle magic circle. After that, you can gather molding parts for some cricles from many other players and/or community groups, or you can purchase new magic circles from the Lab.
