The Arcania PS4 Game have appeared basic in the ways of gameplay and story mode, but one thing that has proved a little difficult was the concept of equipping the weapons, shields, magic etc. At different points at the game, you might try to equip magic or even your weapon and find that you’re not making any headway because the way to do so seems a little complicated.

So for all of you out there playing ArcaniA; I want to go on record as saying that equipping gear whether your weapons, magic or shield, it is not a particular hardship and I’m going to direct you on how. If you’re a gamer like me who plays these kinds of games to have it all then I got news for you, you can but the first thing you have to do is unlock the magic spells first.

Naturally, over the course of the game, you’re going to learn the true advantages of having your magic on the ever ready which I will discuss in this post along with why equipping magic can be seen as a hardship or more of a hardship than it appears and I’ll personally direct you on how to keep magic on the ready. Having said that, let’s started with……

Unlocking magic

As mentioned previously, the first thing you have to do is unlock the magic in the arcania ps4 game and to do that, you’ll need to go to your skills and spells category and scroll all the way down to the bottom where you’ll see 3 words in the form of Zeal, Sincerity and Dominance which gives you the power to access fire, ice and lightning. At first, I thought that you had to pick just one spell and that was that.

However, the truth was far less designed, you can unlock all 3 spells and even use them on the ready when you needed them which is pretty handy. The only problem that I could see that you would have is trying to figure out which spell is stronger even at basic levels (easily the fire spell). When you unlock the magic spells, you’ll have access to all 3 of them at once and make no mistake, there are enemies in the game that have an elemental weakness.

For example, the Goblins have an aversion (allergic) to fire. Also, I want to go on record as saying that trying different magic spells on different enemies will make them easier to defeat especially since you want their death to be quick and swift which you might not get it if all you’re doing is swinging your sword at your enemies which is why we don’t want…..

Equipping magic to be a hardship

The way that you equip magic in the arcania ps4 game is a little bit unique versus how you would any other action RPG like Witcher 3 or even in the earlier God of War games, it cannot be argued that accessing magic in this game can be a little off-putting especially if you’re playing this game for the very first time. Technically, there’s nothing to equipping the magic in your possession but it does take a little bit of practice to be able to master the “technique”.

Case in point, when you’re equipping your magic, you’ll be directed to where you want to put It on the directional pad, but the biggest thing about that is you can still get tripped up from time to time because you can accidentally equip a weapon or a shield by mistake. I remember when I was trying to equip magic; all I was doing was rearranging all of the magic, and weapons and everything was out of order.

My advice, apply a bit of light touch when you’re equipping your magic because you can still, pardon the expression, create chaos when you’re equipping your magic so just be careful when you do but here’s…….

How to do it and still have it all

In the Arcania ps4 game, unlocking the magic and equipping it is an important aspect of the game but now I’m going to talk about how to do it. One of the first things you have to do is figure out where you want it to go. You can do that by going to Spells and Skills.

Next, go all the way down to where you see Zeal, Sincerity and Dominance; in that order. Look over to your immediate left and you’ll see a diagram of the d-pad.

The final step is “arranging” the spell with the directional pad. For me, I have my fire spell programmed to the left button, my lightning spell on my right button, my ice spell on my down button and my sword on my up button. Here’s something you may not know about the sword and shield and the directional button you have them programmed to. If you have just the sword programmed to whichever directional button you do, you’ll pull out your sword and shield when you press that button. So keep that in mind when you make the choice to do this and you definitely because there’s……….

The finer point of having magic on the ready

In some games, having everything at arm’s length is the ideal goal potentially giving you the best possible advantage. Programming your weapon and magic to your directional buttons will not only give you power to wield if your stamina needs time to recharge but it’ll give you the ability to switch between the weapon and magic at will.

If we’re being honest here, the finer point of having your weapons and magic near and programmed to the d-pad is so you don’t have to lean on just one. Your weapons and magic will be the go-to all game so having them on the ready is definitely something you will want. As I previously mentioned, testing out and exploiting different elemental weaknesses is a definite must in the game if you’re to survive. So mind that always! Now, for the………….


The Arcania PS4 Game gives you all the power you need to survive and play the game all the way through, unlocking magic is the first thing you need to do. Equipping magic can be a hardship, but simply remembering that programming them to the d-pad will give you the power to wield everything you want.

Don’t forget about the finer point of having magic on the ready and that’s to exploit elemental weaknesses. Finally, don’t forget that if you only have your sword programmed to a specific button on the d-pad you’ll be able to access both sword and shield.
