This is a guide for Elemancy in Final Fantasy XV. Read on to learn more about Elemancy and how to use the spells crafted through it!
List of Contents
The Elemancy system lets you craft spells using the elemental energy that you absorb from elemental deposits or from enemies defeated with element-absorbing weapons.
The power of the crafted spell depends on its potency and its potency depends on the amount of elemental energy that you invested on the spell.
The element of the spell depends on what element is dominant on the spell.
For example: 10 fire + 4 ice will produce Fire and 99 fire + 1 ice + 1 lightning will produce Fira. There are certain Ascension abilities that will boost the spell crafting power, which makes crafting higher tier spells possible using fewer elemental energy.
|Potency||Fire element||Ice element||Lightning element|
|0 - 99||Fire||Blizzard||Thunder|
|100 - 199||Fira||Blizzara||Thundara|
However, if you use all three elements but not one of them makes up the majority of the spell, it will turn into Unicast.
For example: 50 fire + 30 ice + 30 lightning will produce Unicast II because even though you used more fire element than the other elements, you did not use more fire than ice and lightning combined.
Unicast will randomly cast any of the three elemental spell with the same tier.
A fourth item can be added in crafting spells as a catalyst. Items that can be used as catalysts give different additional effects with can be triggered after casting the spell.
