To use it, players will need to fill their Ancient Magic Meter by completing spell combos and collecting blue, crystal-like objects that appear after those combos are completed. Once at least one segment of the Ancient Magic meter is full, a powerful Ancient Spell will be unleashed after inputting a certain key strike. In one instance shown in the Dark Arts Battle Arena, Ancient Magic was used to transfigure a human enemy into a chicken. These spells are suggested to be even more powerful than heavy-hitting spells like Avada Kedavra, which can already instantly defeat an enemy.
