    • Anyone got a counter to this in pvp I have encountered spammers using this thing so I can’t erdtree deflect it as I tried and it just sucked it up I can’t rush them since they’re spamming out magic like it’s Omaha Beach

        I actually have a lot of fun with this one as a sort of safety net. For example, casting it periodically while fighting Alberich allows you to spam your own spells without fear of his ice comets hitting you. The idea is to either cast from a distance and stay underneath the orb, or cast and retreat directly back so that you can maintain distance while the other spells get sucked into its orbit. (It's definitely designed more for ranged builds, basically.)

        If you really want to see its full potential, try casting it when the blue Miranda flowers cast their series of homing comets, then take a few steps back. Damn thing turns into a nuclear reactor, lol.

        • I was so happy when I found this at Caelid, after having those centipedes piercing 128 different holes on me, thought I'd show them finally...

          That joy didn't last long though, it doesn't work on pest threads.

            Maybe it's because Adula is weird, but it drew in none of her magic projectiles... Maybe ill have more luck with Gideon.

              In my opinion not really practical for general PvE, but it's awesome if I'm in any situation where I can expect PvP, especially if I'm helping hosts as a summon. Doesn't hard-counter magic like Vow of Silence in Souls, but this and Law of Regression can put a lot of pressure on spammers and result in them wasting a lot of FP, which is valuable if they also use Bloodhound Step spam as a crutch. Often forces them into an unfavorable situation where they have to use spells that leave them more vulnerable - Comet Azur seems to be a popular (and terrible) choice of counter when they realize projectiles are just flying into Astel's Magic Bunghole

                If you cast this you vanish and play another game that was on GameCube with the same name and instead of playing Elden Ring you play Bloodborne detective.

                  Should have a much larger and longer effect on its spell absorbing properties or allow it to vacuum targets for some space control because I wouldn't even go as far as calling it niche in its current form. Ran to it early just so I could make use of it when I got to Raya Lucaria (where it should definitely come into its own) but dear me. Swing and a miss for me I'm afraid.

                    Needs a hard buff. Its a good spell in concept, but in execution its very poor and situational. Very small radius, high Int requirement, and low duration make this spell impractical for most situations, both in duels and invasions.
                    You have to constantly recast it and stay within the radius, essentially making you a sitting duck. This is bad for both invasions and duels, since there is a lot of weapon arts and spells this doesnt cover. This is very useful in 1v1 duels against another mage, but for most invasions ive found this to be very little help.
                    Hopefully they double the duration or make the radius larger.

                      This should have vacuumed everything to its origin, not just spells.

                      Space control could have been a nice direction to progress in, aside from 'hey come closer to me so you can wreck me in person' with gravitas and the gravity well spells.

                        Even as a pure intelligence caster, this is useful to keep with you when you invade/duel in PvP. Can potentially hard counter other sorcerers.

                        But it apparently works against incantations as well?

                          I wish the INT requirement for this spell was a little lower. Would be nice to use alongside the low INT/high STR weapons like the Ruins Greatsword.

                            A spell with interesting, counter-sorcery implications. Its duration is about 15 seconds, and the Old Lord's Talisman does NOT extend it, but Radagon's Icon does improve the speed you cast it. It's a little limited in what it can absorb, but it works against some of the big names like Stars of Ruin. Yet to see if it properly absorbs unusual spells that typically can't be absorbed/reflected like Flies, and I doubt it works against sword or mist-types like Adula's Moonblade. It's stationary, which limits its use when chasing, but one large upside: it does not interrupt the caster's own spells.

                              I love this spell. In the right circumstances, it’s worth 3 memory slots. But do note that it only works against Tarnished SORCERIES— so those lightning strikes will keep on coming.

                                i've been using elden stars a lot in duels as an opener, just to mess with people, it's pretty funny seeing them run around panicking, especially because a lot of people seem to think it's a buff. that was until one guy immediately cast eternal darkness and just stood there looking smug. i was both embarrassed and impressed, and could only clap in response.

                                TL:DR i'm putting this on my low INT utility sorcery build because even if it only works one time, it will be worth it.

                                  Tested: Does not work against any Second stage Final Boss spells.
                                  This is more a pvp spell than anything else.

                                    for some reason, this is internally noted as a karolos sorcery (boosted by azur's glintstone crown). no idea why.

                                      after getting this the first thing I tried was agaisnt the sticky bugs incantation from shrimp nearby.
                                      "well so that was a fkn lie" I said after failing miserably
                                      then tried again against erdtree avatar nearby and reading the spell description twice
                                      "well so that was a fkn lie, this spell is absolute garbanzo"

                                      reading the comments gave me more determination to keep trying.
                                      the testing continues...

                                        This spell is the definition of unfair and shouldn't be allowed in pvp. How can spell cost 25 fp cancel out Stars of Ruin which cost 38 fp? I fought someone who use this every single time I used Stars of Ruin until I ran out of fp and they kill me with their sword. I think this game just hates spellcasters

                                          Go to the East Liurnia Lake Shore grace, go 50 paces north, and use this against the magic Giant Miranda Flower when it uses its projectile attack. Treat yourself, it's been a hard road.

                                            This works on the unending rain of bubbles from the 1 giant oracle envoy at the haligtree, but i found myself needing to cast this spell multiple times while running through the branch because if i wwnt too far from it, the bubbles would fly past the black hole.

                                            In a nutshell its a great defensive "turret" against spells and incantations but bad if you're in constant motion.

                                            Still i wish it had a sliightly longer duration

                                              I cast this against stars of ruin spammers and then spam stars of ruin back at them. Hilarious when they start to roll away and stare at you when their one trick fails

                                                The lore implications of this are stupendous. We find this spell in Sellia, which is located on top of Nokron. Did the people of that eternal city literally summon a black hole which led to their destruction?

                                                        It might be okay if you're casting this and then using ranged weapons like bows, it is really bad if you move from where you cast the spell, the timer and range of its capability is too short

                                                          This thing needs some kind of buff to be usable, it doesn't last long enough to really make a difference to any player with a mild amount of experience as they will just wait till its over. Also doesn't last long enough vs bosses so except for very specific attacks on certain bosses it's just not usable. If you want a handy way to counter spells grab a shield and put thops barrier or carian retaliation on it

                                                            Doesn't stop full moon sorceries or comet azur, and I feel like it should be classified as a gravity magic since spells with a high enough speed will actually orbit it before being shucked in. Used this against adula, saved me from her op homing crystals of death

                                                              Seems to last over 10 seconds, the suction range isn't terrible, but at the same time it feels like it only works if they're casting very nearly "at" the hole. It also feels inconsistent in application, like you're still taking damage sometimes for spells that were absorbed nearby, but you're not standing nearby, they probably won't be aiming close enough to the orb for it to do anything.

                                                              It feels like it would be more useful as an antimagic field on your person (or shield) for the same amount of time.

You get there by following the path down by the church of the plague (up hill from sellia). Then crossing the bridge/ fortification across the main road leading to sellia.
