Tomes is a Weapon category in Death's Gambit Afterlife. Tomes scale with the Intelligence stat and resonates well with the Wizard class, it is best used for long-range since it shoots out magical orbs to attack hostile characters. Each weapon features a unique moveset to their weapon type. Weapon categories grant specific Abilities to the player when equipped. The protagonist can equip up to two weapons, one in each weapon slot. While engaging in Combat, only one of the two slotted weapons may be used at a time, and the player may alternate between them at any point during a fight.

The only category of weapon that supersedes this rule are the Daggers, which are wielded in pairs, one in each hand, and only occupy one weapon slot.  Unlike other games, Shields do not occupy any weapon slots but are instead given their own, therefore you shall always have a shield available regardless of the amount of weapons you have equipped. Weapons can be upgraded +1 to +10 through the use of Soul Stones and Immortalite.

 

Upgrading Weapons

In Deatrh's Gambit: Afterlife, once you've rescued Zuma, the Acolyte of Death (this can be done early in the game), speak to him back at the Central Sanctuary and he'll teach you how to upgrade your equipment. From there, if you've also defeated the Soul of the Phoenix boss, you'll also gain access to upgrade your wares when you are resting at a Death Idol. Weapons can be upgraded +1 to +10 through the use of Soul Stones and Immortalite. To view your current inventory, press I.

Scrapping Weapons

With the same concept, once you've rescued Zuma, the Acolyte of Death, you can also scrap unwanted or duplicate shields in exchange for x1 Soul Stone. Scrapping can also be done from a Death Idol or speaking to Zuma.

      One fire orb casts a basic fireball, deals damage to and ignites the first thing it strikes. Two fire orbs creates a large explosion centred on Sorun, dealing damage and igniting all targets in the area. This explosion spell has a lengthy animation however, so Sorun can be knocked out of it. One lightning orb creates an arc of lightning between Sorun and the nearest target, it will strike that target three times. Sorun is held in place during this and is vulnerable. Two lightning orbs causes Sorun to cast a single bolt of lightning down from the sky upon the closest target, dealing high damage. One dark orb causes Sorun to charge forward with a shield of spikes protruding from him, dealing damage to and inflicting bleed on all targets in his path. Two dark orbs causes Sorun to vanish momentarily, during which time Sorun is invulnerable and can move backwards and forwards freely, after about 2 seconds, Sorun will reappear with a horizontal slash attack, damaging and applying Bleed to all targets struck. One fire orb + one lightning orb causes two balls of lightning to circle around Sorun, these follow Sorun and will deal damage to the first targets they collide with. One fire orb + one dark orb creates a stationary ball of dark fire, which will deal damage to and ignite the first target that touches it. One lightning orb + one dark orb gives Sorun a short buff (~10s) that massively boosts Stamina regeneration speed, allowing you to regenerate your full Stamina bar almost instantly.

        One black orb = a forward moving shield bash that does damage and applies bleed Two Black orbs = an attack similar to Endless where the player disappears and can be moved closer or further to enemies and reappears performing a damaging slash. One black orb + One fire orb = Places an explosive similar to the Dark Knight on heroic.
