Riftwalkers primarily use this spell to visit the guild sphere or the shaman’s cave without needing to travel to Rothkiegen. The spell needs to be studied to a percentage equal to or greater than your player level.
In a pinch this spell can be used to escape danger and heal up, although its long cast time and huge spark cost tend to make it inferior to regular navigation spells for this purpose. It always returns you to the same room you left, which might may or may not be a good thing.
More rarely, riftwalkers will need to ‘cast create rift’ to visit the rift world and hunt for entities. This doesn’t require any particular amount of spell knowledge to do.
