Final Fantasy XV Spells Crafting Guide

In our Final Fantasy XV Spells Crafting Guide, we have detailed everything you need to know about spells crafting in the game.

Cure Spell – How to Create

If you don’t have access to healing items, the cure spell can be a lifesaver. In order to craft it, you need to have any kind of elemental energy, a Flask, and one of the following items:

  • Leiden Potato
  • Aegir Root
  • Potion
  • Hi-Potion
  • Lucian Tomato
  • Beetroot

It is important to note that the spell only heals the caster and no one else in your party.

Insta-Kill Spell – How to Create

As the name suggests, this spell basically allows you to insta-kill a monster in the game. However, it goes without saying that some of the enemies i.e. bosses are immune to its effects.

It is important that you learn its limitations before trying to use. In order to create this spell, you need to combine Gold Needle, Scorpion Stinger, or Coeurl Whiskers as catalysts.

Stop Spell – How to Create

This spell basically allows you to freeze enemies for a short duration of time so that you can get in close and deal some significant amount of damage. In order to create Stop Spell, you need to have one of the following catalysts added to your elemental spells:

  • Ammonite Fossil
  • Fossil Wood
  • Fossil Shell
  • Star Shell
  • Ancient Dragon Tooth
  • Maiden’s Kiss
  • Broken Harmonica
