The Beginner’s Guide, available for direct download here, is intended as a supplement to the full game manual which can be downloaded right here. Still not enough? They’ve even put together this video tutorial to show off many of these game play elements in action:
Warlock: Master of the Arcane will be available tomorrow for $19.99.
