Magic & Spells in Final Fantasy XV will be covered here. Certain Characters can cast spells that buff party members or damage Enemies. Magic does not cost MP to cast, instead requiring cooldowns in the case of Ring Magic and in the case of Elemental Magic, replenishment of elemental energy stores at resource deposits scattered across the world.

Elemental spells are obtained by crafting them through the process of Elemancy which takes harvested elemental energy and combines it with Items to create spells. The created spell is then stored in a Magic Flask and equipped in one of the 4 weapon slots for use in Combat. When used in combat, it is thrown like an explosive and the spell is expended with the flask returning back to your inventory, empty.

 

Magic & Spells Information

There are 2 different types of magic that are found in the game:

 

Ring Magic

 

Ring Magic is a story related feature that can only be unlocked during an event in the main questline. Can only be used by Noctis as he is the bearer of the Royal Ring of Lucis. Players will equip an item like the Ring of the Lucii, which corresponds to a specific spell like the Death Spell. These types of spells do not have to be refilled with elemental energy to cast and instead are tied specifically to their casting item.

 

 

Elemental Magic

 

Elemental Magic consists of Fire Magic, Ice Magic and Lightning Magic are the elemental magic in the game and require elemental energy to cast. Elemental energy is present throughout the world of Final Fantasy XV in deposits, and are a type of energy that the party can absorb (similar to Final Fantasy VIII's 'Draw' mechanic.) Certain Weapons also provide energy absorption effects. The energy that you do absorb will be used to cast and create spells and will be stored in your inventory. The spell item will be equipped in place of a weapon when in battle.

Elemental Magic has impact - visually and mechanically on the environment. Weather also has an impact during battle as magic can have different effects depending on the current climate such as setting dry areas on fire, or thunder magic being amplified during rain. Magic can damage both enemies and any party members caught in the spell radius.

  • Fire Magic: Can set fire to Oil and other flammable or explosive objects.
  • Ice MagicCan freeze any water around the caster of the spell.
  • Lightning Magic: Can deal large damage to target of spell if combined with water or rain.

 

 

Elemancy Information

To craft new spells, you will open the Elemancy tab in the game's menu. You will need one of the elements, Fire, Lightning or Ice and you can add Items and ingredients to improve the strength or add additional effects to the spell.

  • Once a spell is created, it is saved for easy future creation.
  • The amount of elemental energy you add increases the potency of the spell. If you raise the potency over 100, you will produce a higher tier spell.
  • Unicast spell is made by adding all three elements at once while no one propotion of an element exceed the combination of the other two by twice.
  • Adding items will create a similar spell with some added effects, such as adding a healing factor, boosting the amount of effects or adding debuffs.
  • The created spells are limited use, and their inventory is determined by the flasks you have. A created spell is stored in a flask, and using the spell in combat or choosing to empty the flask will free the flask to hold another item. Once emptied, you lose the spell and any ingredients you added to it. They can also be discarded without casting if you wish to free up a flask.
  • The spell must be equipped like a Weapon when crafted if you want to use it in Combat. They don't consume MP when used, and instead have a set amount of uses before the flask empties.
  • Spell duplication occurs when adding an item to a spell increases the spell's number of uses. For example, adding three Zu Beaks gives you (3/0.7 = 4.29, rounds down to 4) additional spell uses, and adding six Zu beaks gives you (6/.7 = 8.57, rounds down to 8) additional spell uses.    

 

Spell Tiers

 

When creating spells the amount of energy given to the spell increases its potency which results in an increase in its damage and radius and adds a suffix to the spell's name, such as -ra or -ga. The tiers are reflected as follows:

 

Spell Name

Tier

Element

Power Required

Fire 1 Fire Energy 1-99
Blizzard 1 Ice Energy 1-99
Thunder 1 Lightning Energy 1-99
Unicast 1 ++ 1-99
