Amalur Wiki

Twists of Fate are special cards, similar to Destinies, that add passive bonuses to a character when unlocked. They are not tied to Destinies in any way, however; one's Destiny has no bearing on what Twists they can use, and vice versa. They can be unlocked through standard gameplay, typically as quest rewards, or by purchasing DLC.

Some are a choice you have to make at the end of a quest, therefore cannot be obtained simultaneously with another. These include the Warsworn, Travelers and Scholia Arcana Twists.
