25 Best Elden Ring Incantations

Besides the massive variety of weapons and spells, Elden Ring is also home to the best incantations. For those unaware, incantations are an alternative to sorcery in Elden Ring, giving the user offensive and defensive buffs against enemies. Some incantations even allow you to deal actual physical and elemental damage against enemies. However, with over 100 incantations available, you might have trouble deciding on the perfect one. To make your job easier here are the 25 best Elden Ring incantations for you to get started with!

Undoubtedly one of the best Elden Ring incantations is also one of the coolest dragon-based ones you can get. The Dragonclaw quite literally summons a dragonclaw that helps strike targets and deal fire damage. To get it slay a dragon and get its Dragonheart. Once done, go to the Church of Dragon Communion in Limgrave and present the heart to buy it.

2. Lightning Spear

If you hand over Brother Corhyn or the turtle Miriel the Dragon Cult prayerbook dropped by the Leyndell Knight, you can win one of the best Elden Ring incancatations named Lightning Spear. This incantation boasts itself one of the coolest animations, where the player will conjure a lightning spear, and hurl it towards their enemies. The incantation deals great lightning damage and is perfect for zoning your opponents.

3. Flame, Grant Me Strength

  • Requirement: 15 Faith

4. Black Flame

Black Flame Elden Ring
  • Requirement: Faith 20
  • FP Usage: 18

The Black Flame is one dark (pun intended) Elden Ring incantation where you throw a ball of Black Flame towards your enemy. The black flame can be charged which allows it to deal additional damage and explode upon impact! Furthermore, it will keep dealing damage to the enemy overtime. You can get this incantation getting the Godskin Prayerbook from the Stormveil castle and handing it to either Brother Corhyn or Miriel.

5. Glintstone Breath

Glinestone Breath Elden Ring Incantation
  • Requirement: 15 Faith, 12 Arcane
  • FP Usage: 28

The Glinstone holds a lot of value in the world of Elden Ring, and it makes sense for the game to have multiple incantations based on it. Glinstone Breath is one such Elden Ring incantation, where you can perform powerful magic breath. You can get this from the Church of Dragon Communion in Caelid, after slaying a dragon and getting its heart.

6. Ancient Dragons’ Lightning Strike

  • Requirement: 26 Faith
  • FP Usage: 36

Ancient Dragon’s Lightning Strike is another lightning-based incantation in Elden Ring, which allows you to call in red lighting above your foes that results in dealing damage. It looks extremely cool, and frankly, you should have this just for fun in your incantation roster. You can get this after getting the ancient dragon prayerbook from Crumbling Farum Azula and giving it to Brother Corhyn or Miriel. Then, you can buy it for 10,000 runes.

7. Swarm of Flies

  • Requirement: 11 Faith, 16 Arcane
  • FP Usage: 14

Another thing that holds prominence in the Elden Ring is blood. You’ll see a lot of it, you’ll experience a lot of it, and you can also deal the same on enemies. Swarm of Flies is one Elden Ring incantation that will help you do just that.

This swarm of flies quite literally summons frenzied bloodflies that will attack enemies and build bleed damage. You get this incantation in Elden Ring by going to Moghwyn Palace and picking it from a dead body. It’s situated directly north of the Palace Approach Ledge-Road site of Grace.

  • FP Usage: 41

In deep root depths, if you head west from the great waterfall crest grace, and look northwest after reaching some roots, you’ll see a root going up to a cave. After entering the cave, fight the giant ants, and you’ll find Elden Stars in the end.

The elden stars incantation creates a line of golden projectiles that start and hit the opponent once it is done casting. This will deal magic and faith damage to your opponent, effectively killing them if you cast it enough.

9. Ekzykes’s Decay

Ekzykes's Decay Elden Ring incantation
  • Requirement: 23 Faith
  • FP Usage: 15 Arcane

Scarlet Rot is a major story element in Elden Ring. One whole section of the map is covered in them, and frankly, nothing upsets me more than the rot. So, it only makes sense for me to suggest Ekzykes’s Decay, an incantation that spews Scarlet Rot’s breath of Ekzykes from above.

Ekzykes is a dragon who you defeat in Elden Ring, and he guards the church of dragon communion in Caelid. As such, you’ll just need two whole hearts to get this incantation in Elden Ring.

10. Burn O Flame!

  • Requirement: 27 Faith
  • FP Usage: 26

Another flame-based incantation that makes things easier for you when it comes to crowd control is Burn O Flame! It raises a wall of flame pillars around you, momentarily stopping a hoard of enemies. And, if it connects with your enemy, it will deal fire damage to them. While this Elden Ring incantation might not be very helpful during a boss fight, but is good for crowd control against enemies.

11. Aspects of the Crucible: Tail

Aspect of Crucible incantation in Elden Ring
  • Requirement: Faith 27
  • FP Usage: 20

When you fight the first Crucible Knight boss in Stormhill Evergoal, you’ll have a blast fighting their unique moveset, and get hit by their tail.

Pretty cool isn’t it?

12. Giantsflame Take Thee

  • Requirement: 30 Faith
  • FP Usage: 30

Another great incantation in Elden Ring is named Giantsflame Take Thee, which hurls a large fireball toward your enemies. The fireball explodes upon impact thereby damaging your opponents in the process. It technically works similarly to Black Flame, except the flame isn’t black.

Rotten Breath is one of the best Elden Ring incantations as an alternative to Scarlet Rot.

Bestial Sling incantation Elden Ring
  • Requirement: 10 Faith

When you meet Guuranq for the first time and hand him the second Deathroot, you’ll gain a new Incantation named Bestial Sling. This power picks up rocks from the ground and hurls them toward the enemies in a conical shape. This results in the player continuously throwing the item and dealing some physical damage against enemies.

  • FP Usage: 15 Faith, 12 Arcane

Yes, I have a slight obsession with Dragon incantations. Which is why you’re seeing quite a few here. The Elden Ring Dragonfire incantation is no different.

You only need one Dragon Heart to purchase this incantation from the Church or the Cathedral of Dragon Communion.
