Visit Founts of Blessing Earlier in Forspoken

Looking for a free spell at the start? It is always a good idea to go to the Founts of Blessing if you spot a fount of blessing on your map or from a Mulberry to gain a brand new spell for free. It offers supportive movement or helpful abilities like jumping on the ground faster with Shimmy or climbing further up walls with a saw.

Pickup Mana Pools in Forspoken

Never miss pickup Manna Pools. Always collect each Mana pool you get spotted. Each Mana pool will grant you one Mana point. Otherwise, you will get Mana Points by leveling up. It still doesn’t need to be worried if the Mana Pools are guarded by the enemies. All you have to do is to move Frey to run through them out to pick that up. You can find them in Clumps, strings of them going through valleys, and along the cliff. So if you find one, probably there would be others nearby. Collecting Mana pools will also increase Frey’s Stamina when collected.

Avoid Fall Damage in Forspoken

You should avoid Fall Damage when landing. Fray can suffer from full damage when she lands from a great height. When she lands from a great height the four will be consumed by Cuff to prevent any damage to Fray at the expense of emptying her stamina charges. However, if she hits the ground with already having no stamina then she will take actual damage.

Visit Belfries in Forspoken

You should always visit the Golden Light houses named Belfry Tower. It will allow you to have more fast travel locations as well as unfog the nearby region of the map and you can mark down the nearby landmarks so that you do not need to manually explore the region to find out the notable points.
