Forspoken has several magic spells for you to try out. One of these is called Arc Slice, which causes your character Frey to whip around a fiery sword, devastating surrounding opponents. Here’s our Forspoken guide to help you upgrade the Arc Slice Red Magic/fire spell.
Note: We’ll have a Forspoken guides and features hub soon, so stay tuned.
Forspoken guide: How to upgrade the Arc Slice magic spell
The Arc Slice magic spell in Forspoken becomes available once you beat Tanta Sila in Chapter 5. Doing so unlocks Red Magic (i.e., fire) as a skill tree. The default attack for this element is called Slice, which causes your character to swipe foes with a flaming sword by pressing left-click. Arc Slice, meanwhile, can be done by holding the left mouse button. Once you let go, Frey will unleash a fiery blow in a wide arc.
To upgrade the Arc Slice magic spell in Forspoken, we suggest making use of Mana and Spellcraft Challenges. At the start, you’ll only have the level 1 skill, though you could spend Mana to unlock levels 2 and 3. Then, via the Spellcraft tome, you can also track their respective challenges at the same time. Since you’re casting the same spell, you can increase the tallies for all three tasks if you manage to do the correct actions. Here they are:
- Level 1: Build up power and damage enemies for a total of 10,000 points – Simply keep using the ability over and over to hit foes.
- Level 2: Hit three or more enemies with a single strike – Look for hostiles that are clustered together and use the skill. If you’re doing this in conjunction with the level 1 challenge, then you’ll rack up points quickly since you’re hitting multiple foes.
- Level 3: Defeat the final enemy in battle – What this simply means is that the last enemy in a group should be killed using Arc Slice. As such, you’ll want to be careful when a pack is down to just a couple of mobs so you don’t accidentally eliminate the last one with a different ability. Do this a few more times when battling other groups of foes and you’ll be done in no time.
Don’t forget that each challenge that you complete when upgrading Arc Slice magic in Forspoken also increases the skill’s damage. Moreover, you gain +1 Red Magic, a bonus that’s applied to all Fire spells.
Forspoken is available via Steam.
