Pretty much right off the bat, you’re going to have more spells than you’re able to equip in those four slots so knowing how to change them is key, especially if you find yourself in a tight spot.

The change these spells, what you’ll need to do is press right on the D-pad, bringing up a full screen of spells. In this menu you can select one of the spells you have unlocked and assign it to the ‘quick selection’ as previously mentioned. Hold R2/RT and press the desired button you want to assign the new spell to and you’ll be good to go.

Naturally, you can’t select a spell that has a padlock on it as these haven’t been learned yet.

You can access this menu at any point so don’t worry about your spells being locked away. However, do keep in mind you are at that four limit when wanting to cast so make sure you have a solid variation otherwise you might find yourself in some hot water, especially on harder difficulties.

This will move it over to the new one for use in battle, or if you’re simply messing around on your travels.
