Forspoken means stations are small chapels where you may quickly travel to and heal yourself there. And if you work together with the pulpit, you'll uncover hidden areas in different sections of the map. Most importantly, you'll be able to enter the spellcraft library, which allows you to pick challenges that may enhance your abilities.
Make sure you are always up against three challenging spellcraft challenges.

Each time you complete a task, you'll gain a permanent improvement to your magic stat, as well as increase the ability of the related spell at the same time. There's no reason to have three going at the same time.
