Somaria Magic Refill is a glitch that allows the player to refill their magic using the Cane of Somaria while overloading ancilla slots.

Execution

There are several ways to fill up the ancilla slots that work. One such method is to place a Somaria block, explode it, and then place another Somaria block, then by filling the remaining ancilla slots with 3 arrows and 1 bomb you can then spam use Somaria to keep activating a "refund" to refill the magic meter until the arrows/bombs despawn and the block explodes.

This can also be accomplished by just quickly using Somaria in a rhythmic fashion in an area where all the Somaria projectiles are still on screen but this method is significantly more difficult.

Note: You need to have at least enough magic to place two Somaria blocks for this to work. Additionally, you can actually overfill your magic using this method which can visually break the meter and will give you a "no magic" error when trying to use some items requiring magic. This can be fixed by grabbing a magic decanter of any size to refill magic, by getting hit by an anti-fairy to drain your magic back to a valid value, or by using a Medallion, a Cape, or sometimes the Cane of Byrna.

Uses

This glitch can be useful situations such as refilling magic during boss fights that require heavy magic use such as Kholdstare, Trinexx, or Ganon.
