A complete guide to unlocking all spells in Forspoken.

Posted By | On 29th, Jan. 2023


In Forspoken you’ll need to learn magic if you want to survive in the dangerous world of Athia. In this guide you’ll learn about Forspoken’s magic system, including the different categories of spells and what effects they do when you cast them. Let’s begin!

What are the different types of magic in Forspoken?

Frey can learn four different kinds of magic. They are:

  • Frey’s Magic (Purple magic) – Earth-based 
  • Ola’s Magic (Green Magic) – Light-based 
  • Prav’s Magic (Blue Magic) – Water-based
  • Sila’s Magic (Red Magic) – Fire-based 

In Forspoken there exist distinct schools, each comprising a set of spells that can be learned and mastered to enhance one’s offensive, defensive, and movement capabilities. In the upcoming sections, you will discover all the spells associated with each magic school, along with their respective abilities.

How to unlock magic in Forspoken

At the start of the game, Freya possesses Purple (Earth-based) magic. However, to access additional magic schools, she must overcome the bosses of Athia. Defeating Tanta Prav grants access to Blue, Water-based magic. Defeating Tanta Ola unlocks Green, Light-based magic. Finally, overcoming Tanta Sila grants access to Red, Fire-based magic.

How to unlock new spells and upgrade them in Forspoken

Once a magic school is unlocked, you can unlock new spells from within that school or upgrade existing ones using Mana.
