While non-Magic classes can technically cast spells, they can only do so via items (click items), process (processes), buffs and / or combat abilities (things that do no actually require Mana).
Magic can be offense (attack / damage opponents), defensive (i.e. buffs) and of miscellaneous use (i.e. teleportation).
To cast spells, you must add a Spell Gem, from your Spell Book, to your Spell Gem bar.
To add a Spell Gem to your Spell Gem bar from your Spell Book, you will need to find the Spell in your Spell Book. Then click the spell to pop the spell an icon onto your cursor (see image below) and then drop it into an empty Spell Gem on your Spell Gem bar.
To add a Spell Gem directly from your Spell Gem bar, right click an empty Spell Game slot and follow the categories to choose a spell (spell category --> spell type --> spell) (see image below).
There are (2) classes of Characters that can use Magic... Intelligence Casters and Wisdom Casters.
The difference is if their mana pool is affected (improved) by their Intelligence Statistic or your Wisdom Statistic.
You skills in using Magic are increased automatically, by simply casting Spells or Meditating.
Your skills in the different types of Magic, however, can only skill up when you are using a spell that is of a given Magic category.
To see what category a spell is, simply right click the spell from your Spell Gems (Spell Bar) or your Spell Book, where it will show the "Skill" type (see image below).
