3 magical builds to win every Spellbreak match

Spellbreak the mold.

Spellbreak has become the latest battle royale to captivate gamers. You play as a battlemage in a ruined land where you wield magical gauntlets that control the familiar elements of fire, ice, lightning, earth, air, and ... poison.

Like all battle royales, a storm circle gradually closes in, forcing players to fight each other to the death. But because everyone gets a starting gauntlet element and can pick up a secondary during the match, along with a slew of other items, customizing your ideal build can be quite the task — especially when you can hover around like Iron Man, cast two different attacks from each gauntlet, and combine elemental effects for explosive results.

Here are the three best builds in Spellbreak right now to help you prep for victory.


What the very expensive Snyder Cut reshoots hint about the DCEU

What is WarnerMedia really investing in the DC franchise?

In other words: There must be more to the DC franchise if WarnerMedia is willing to spend oodles of money to redo a three-year-old movie that wasn't popular (40% on Rotten Tomatoes) to begin with. But what is it?

Saturn's chaotic moon may be a lot younger than we thought

The bizarre world of Titan may not have formed that long ago.

Saturn is a busy planet. The gas giant is known for its mysterious rings made up of comets, asteroids and broken rocky objects, and has the largest number of moons of any other planet in the Solar System, beating Jupiter by three more moons.

Saturn's many moons are believed to have formed around the same time as the Solar System, at least 4 billion years ago. However, a new model suggests that the orbiting moons may be a lot younger than previously thought, with some forming only a couple of million years ago.
