You do not necessarily need to defeat an enemy with the Ancient Magic, only to have used it on them. You may also want to visit Ancient Magic Hotspots around the open world while you are searching for these enemies. Solving these puzzles will allow you to increase the size of your Ancient Magic meter. That way, you'll then be able to save more Ancient Magic for when you need it.
