Heavy objects that you are not capable to move can be pushed indirectly by Magnesis. Although not all objects can be pushed, it is effective in removing obstacles.

When using Magnesis, it is sometimes difficult to tell the distance between the object and the enemy/player. A mark appears directly below the object, so do not look at the object alone, but use the mark as a landmark.

Ensure That No Obstacles Are Placed Between The Lines
