Final Fantasy 16: How to Unlock Abilities

Final Fantasy 16 is an Action-Adventure RPG that sets in the World of Valisthea. The main protagonist of the game is Clive Rosfield and players will get to fully control Clive throughout the gameplay as well as in combat. There are a number of basic combat skills and abilities that players will get to learn during the Training Session which takes place pretty early in the game. However, the starting abilities cannot be enough later in the game so, players would have to unlock and learn new abilities to strengthen their character.

In this guide, we’ll tell you how to unlock abilities in Final Fantasy 16.

How to Unlock the Abilities

Clive Rosfield will start with a number of basic skills and two Phoenix Eikon abilities. One of them would be Eikon Feat and the other one would be Eikon Ability. Now, both of them are from Phoenix Eikon Ability Tree and players can choose to learn new abilities from available Eikon Trees or upgrade the ones they already have learned. Other than that, players would also have to unlock and learn new abilities from the regular Ability Tree that will enhance their combat style of Clive.

However, in order to do that, players will be required of Ability Points. Ability Points are mainly used to unlock and learn new Abilities from the Ability Trees. To get the Ability Points, players would only have to fight and clear out the wave of enemies. As by defeating the last foe, a number of gained Ability Points, Experience Points, and Gils will be shown on the right side of the screen. After gaining enough Ability Points, follow the following steps to unlock the abilities.

  • Press the Options Button to go into the Menu and then keep pressing the R2 Button to change the tab until the Abilities Tab.
  • In the Ability Tab, there will be the basic Ability Tree in the middle and the Eikon Ability Trees around the basic Ability Tree. Now, in order to improve the combat style, select the Abilities from the basic Ability Tree and to improve the Eikon Abilities, select the Abilities from Eikon Ability Tree.
  • In order to unlock and learn a new ability, simply hover the cursor over an ability that is not learned and hold down the X Button to learn it. The manual of the ability can also be seen to learn the pattern of the new ability.
How to Unlock the Abilities

Unlocking new abilities is simple but it is possible to learn an ability by mistake. If that happens, players would lose the Ability Points but it is something that players don’t have to worry about because there is a Respec mechanic in the game. If players have learned an ability that they did not want, they can un-learn it by holding down the Square Button while hovering over the ability. If players want to make a different build for Clive, then they can Reset all of the abilities by holding down the Touchpad in the Abilities Tab.

I enjoy playing games, and gaming is a passion of mine. Among my favorite games are Tears of the Kingdom, GTA, and Cyberpunk.
