The Ancient Magic gauge can be increased by completing Ancient Magic Hotspots found in the open world. These locations are small areas surging with Ancient Magic, typically found around ruined castles. 

Completing Ancient Magic Hotspots will progress your Ancient Magic traces challenge. Once you have completed the required amount, you can claim the reward for additional capacity to your Ancient Magic meter.

At an Ancient Magic Hotspot, you will need to follow the traces on the game to activate the puzzle. This will spawn Ancient Magic around the location that must be collected to complete the puzzle. There are typically three Ancient Magic orbs to find; Revelio can help you locate these and relevant traps or objects that can be used to reach them.
