* MoreDakka: The M60, a DiskOneNuke earned very early in the story by preventing any buildings from being burned down in the Jotunn boss fight. Very nearly a GameBreaker in the later parts of the game, too. It fires several times a second, staggers enemies, tears apart [[{{Mook}} mooks]] and has a firing cone that can hit multiple enemies with little to no effort. It also isn't affected by the turning rate limitations of other ranged attacks, meaning you can instantaneously swivel around and shoot enemies coming up behind you. Plus there's no risk of self-destruction like there is when using beams. [[SoCoolItsAwesome And it can still be used as a melee weapon when elementally charged!]]

*** The Zombie robe takes all of that fragility and throws it out the window in exchange for [[MightyGlacier walking at an old man's pace.]]

* {{Badass}}: The main characters can (and do) take down armies, a dragon, as well as [[spoiler: [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu punch out Assatur and, if they have a certain piece of DLC, Cthulhu himself.]]]]
** Grimnir is so hideously strong that the only thing being restrained accomplishes is that he can't aim at cities anymore. He is still fully capable of casting incredibly powerful Magicks, and you better be ready if you decide to walk up to him.

Oh, and you don't have a ManaMeter. Cast what you want, as often as you want, provided that you can get the elements up fast enough.

Oh, and you don't have a ManaMeter. ManaMeter or SpellLevels - the most powerful spells are available to you right from the start. Cast what you want, as often as you want, provided that you know how to and can get the elements up fast enough.

The main selling point of the gameplay lies within the magic system. Using eight basic elements (Water, Life, Shield, Cold, Lightning, Arcane, Earth and Fire) and two special elements (Ice and Steam, which are Water + Cold and Water + Fire, respectively), players craft and cast their spells at a moment's notice. For further customization, spells can be cast in a standard fashion, in a circle around the wizard, on the wizard's weapon, or on the wizard himself. There are also special spells called Magicks gained from books placed throughout the campaign that offer even more powerful abilities.

** [[http://kotaku.com/#!5773504/the-most-surprising-fantasy-game-expansion-pack-ever-created As a Kotaku commenter put it:]]
-->"So this is ''VideoGame/CannonFodder'' meets ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' then? I can live with that."
** The [[WordOfGod developers]] would like to think of it as "A mix between ''{{Moonstone}}'' and ''{{VideoGame/Gauntlet}}''"... Though, one of the developers has a brother who compared it to ''VideoGame/GuitarHero''.

* EverybodyKnewAlready: Vlad claims to be a non-vampire, yet there's more than enough clues dropped (including a person with a whip and leather skirt) before he announces that he is [[spoiler:a vampire]].

** The sword, Gram, has an ability called "Dragon Slayer". It's obtained fairly early in the game as a secret, and seems a pretty crappy weapon with no other abilities... Until you realize that [[spoiler:In Chapter 11, the boss is Fafnir, a ''dragon''.]] Killing [[spoiler:Fafnir]] with Gram is a {{Steam}} achievement which used to be quite hard to get, due the extreme length of time between getting Gram and slaying [[spoiler:the boss]]; however, with the introduction of a patch that allows you to replay chapters, acquiring the sword and taking it to the fight is now significantly easier.
