Forspoken Magic Types: All Spells and Abilities List

Get to grips with Forspoken's expansive list of spells and abilities in this complete list of magic types.

To make the most of Forspoken's combat, you'll likely want to invest in a bunch of different abilities and spells. Starting with one set of spells in a single magic type, Frey ultimately amasses four spell groups (purple magic, blue magic, red magic, and green magic) that offer different advantages and necessitate different playstyles. The guide below lists every ability in Forspoken, along with a description of what they do.
