Winning fights in Black Book is all about weaving spell cards, or pages, together. But the system might be confusing for first-time players or those that aren’t familiar with card-based combat RPG games like Slay the Spire. If you are confused about the combat system, here is how it works.
How to Compose a Spell in Black Book
Your power in the game comes from the way you use and combine your cards, but some of these effects aren’t very clear or not explained, which can leave some hanging.
The idea is that you create Zagovors by combining your different cards. You’ll want to use effects that affect each other, such as applying Waste with one card then using another to multiply it or deal damage based on it.
Using cards that only deal damage can get the work done but is in weaving these effects together that you can really take advantage of the game’s combat system. Especially for the combat puzzles, you’ll have to deal with later on.
At the start of the game, you’ll be able to combine 3-4 pages of your book, or cards, to create your Zagovors. But as the game goes on, you’ll be able to increase your limit through advancing your character and the use of artifacts.
The more pages of your book you can wave together, the more impactful your spells will be. Ultimately, composing spells is all about using pages that synergize well with each other.

Even when it seems like everything is going sideways we’ll still be here to help you get the Artist Assistant Trophy!
Artist Assistant Trophy Guide | Season
In this guide you will learn how to capture Tieng Valley. As vague and open-ended as it sounds it’s pretty easy to do! You will just have to visit another place in the valley and strike up a conversation with Maytora.
If you’re at a point in the game where you just received the trophy for Deep Listener then you should still be at the eastern side of the valley. Your roadster bicycle has done you quite a service getting you here and it will continue to do so as you need to head further into the forest.
Your destination is just one or two pumps away, once you see a stone bridge take a right and go around the back of the house, you should see a red art piece on top of a wooden table when you get there.
Let Estelle do a monologue about the art piece, Maytora will talk to you after you’re done. Go around her backyard and take photos of the art you see and show it to her. She too, will do a monologue about how unsatisfied she is with her work.
Next she’ll have you look through a junk pile, grab anything you can find there and take it back to her and listen to what she has to say again.
When you bring the item of your choice to her you can continue the conversation with any dialogue option you like, and that’s it! You should immediately get the Artist Assistant Trophy after the cutscene finishes. Now ride like the wind and go try it out!
