Alternatively use the right click and select, ‘Use’ from the menu.
Once you have chosen to use the magic mirror you will be transported to the customization menu for whichever character you had selected.

We will talk about how to get to both of these locations in the game including where they can be found on the map. One of the locations is in the base game and apart from just progressing through the game to unlock it, you won’t have to do anything else. The second magic mirror you will have to enable in the pause menu of the game.
Magic Mirror Location 1: Aboard the Lady Vengeance
Once you get to a certain point in the story of the game you will find yourself aboard the ship, the Lady Vengeance. In the base game this used to be the only magic mirror location in the game.
The magic mirror is located below deck on the bottom story of the ship. Head all the way down the stairs as far as you can go and you will find the magic mirror located on the bottom level on the back of the staircase.
Magic Mirror Location 2: Inside the Fort Joy Arena
To find this magic mirror you will first have to enable it in the settings menu. To have this mirror avaliable in the game to change your skills follow this guide below.
Step 1: Open up the pause menu using the ESC key. once you are in the pause menu select the option Gift Bag Features.
Once you’ve opened this up you will see a list of free DLC and addons that are made by the developers of the game. These went alongside with regular updates to bring more content to the game and to change how some of the mechanics work. Once you are in the Gift Bag menu scroll down until you find the ‘Fort Joy Magic Mirror’ item.
Make sure to activate this item and see if there are any other addons you wish to enable as well. Once you have enabled the Fort Joy Magic Mirror head to the kitchen area of Fort Joy. Once you have talked to the right NPC you will be able to use the small hatch in the kitchen that will lead you down to the arena. As soon as you go down the hatch turn to the right and the Magic Mirror should be there in the corner. It is quite dark and blends into the wall so keep your eyes peeled.
Those are the two magic mirror locations in Divinity: Original Sin 2. Maybe you made a mistake and no longer want a pyro magic build and want to change into a tank instead.
