Dark and Darker: tier list of spells

Dark and Darker is perhaps the big surprise of the end of 2023. It is the Ironmace studio, originally from South Korea, which is working on the production of this game. It is currently available in the free test phase on Steam and some streamers who have tried it find great potential in it.

You must form a team of three to venture on one of the different maps of the game and overcome the challenges that await you. The game mixes a dungeon PvE environment, with PvP as you will be competing with other players. You will select a character and a class that you will shape during your game. Your characters will have the possibility to use various spells available in the game. To help you in your choices, here are the best spells.
