There may be many magic spells or attacks are present in the game, but few are very regularly used, and those are,
- Wind Weave – It is one of most popular spell in the game, because it has maximum ammo in the game. This is a kind of projectile attack. Regularly, it shoots one projectile, but if you charge the spell before shooting, it shoots two projectile, and it will be worth charging if there are more enemies for quick escape. Number of projectiles can be increased by upgrading spell.
- Water Weave – This spell is a short range attack. This creates a wiping wave, when shooted. Its length of wipe can also be increased.
- Fire Weave – This spell is the most expensive on the spell ammo. But it does worth it, and if charged, it shines as per its name and cost. When charged, shoots like a projectile bomb, and the area of effecto of blast can be increased.
Charging the Attacks
It is recommended that every possible attack you do, charge it before shooting. Because charging the attacks does not cost anything additional and increases the damage and other aspects as per attack type.

Many objects you will find in the way, are flying and have a crystal-like look on the object. These objects are the deposits of the ether.

By the use of a spectral scan of the nearby area, you can find these objects.
Blocking enemy’s attacks
Blocking an attack is also a very important skill to master. Especially the timing of the block also matters a lot in the game. If you block before the attack and get hit by the enemy, you will get damage, but if you block the attack, exactly at the time you are getting damaged, then you can block the whole damage.
If you want to complete a fight soon with the side ghosts and enemies, you must destroy their cores. And destroying their cores will ensure that they are not going to come again to fight with you.
When you give some hits to enemies, their shining core becomes visible and it is your chance to destroy them. And the speed of destroying cores and the time for which the cores remain exposed can be increased by updating two skills in the upgrade menu known as Fudo and Kukurihime.
