Godslayer Incantations

Godslayer's Seal is a Sacred Seal in Elden Ring. The Godslayer's Seal scales primarily with Faith and Strength. The Godslayer's Seal is a good Weapon for any character that wishes to use Incantations. It also has a passive effect that gives a 10% boost to Godslayer Incantations.

 

Sacred seal of the Godskin Apostles, inlaid with obsidian.

Said to represent the manipulation of black flame, this catalyst enhances godslayer incantations.

 

Where to Find Godslayer's Seal in Elden Ring

The Godslayer's Seal weapon can be found at Stormveil Castle

  • Location: Stormveil Castle
  • Nearest Site of Grace: Rampart Tower  
  • From the Rampart Tower grace, take the elevator down to the feasting hall where the Grafted Scion was roaming. Exit into the courtyard with all of the waiting archers. Make a hard left into a small stairway that goes underground. You'll find a room that is guarded by four Rats, and ahead is a doorway that is blocked by a white fog. To dispel the fog, you will need to use a Stonesword Key on the Imp Statue. You'll find a stockroom on the other side; the room has a treasure chest containing the seal. [Map here]

      Am i the only one who's strangely bothered that this thing has a yellow glow? feels like it really shouldn't...

      • Anonymous

        Gravel seal just has better spells that makes it worth using over this at 60 FTH, even with 10 less spell buff.

        • Anonymous

          I'm plugging stats into a calculator, so maybe it's inaccurate, but it looks to me like this'll actually always get better spell adjust than the finger seal, with the only reason to use the finger seal over this being if you don't have the 27 faith needed to use this seal yet.

          • Anonymous

            I haven't upgraded every sacred seal I have, the frenzied flame seal is +9 because I didn't want to waste a dragon stone on something that wont work for me after I use Miquella's needle to remove the three fingers influence. I have the golden order seal +10 and this seal at +25.
            Assuming I haven't misunderstood the upgrade table on this page, the godslayer's seal fully upgraded at 80 FTH is showing incant scaling of 327 for me.

            • Anonymous

              Get seal early in the game requires 27 faith, all other seals that are arguably better require less...Miyazaki really wanted people to use magic over faith.

              • Anonymous

                The difference between this and the finger seal is completely negligible unless you rely on black flame incantations

                  "The Godslayer Incantations are amongst the best in a Fth build's arsenal. The scaling is good and the damage boost is fantastic for how hard those spells can hit. Sure there's seals that scale better, but they're either way later in the game, require a massive stat investment or just boost incantations that aren't all that good. If it's vulnerable to fire, Black Flame alone rarely steers you wrong."

                  Opinion based, misleading, and in a casual tone unfit for the point it is trying to make. (e.g. stating something similar to this as advice for a boss could be acceptable, but as it is attempting to state something objective about an item, it is unacceptable, even if it was inarguably true.) Should absolutely be removed.

                    "The Godslayer Incantations are amongst the best in a Fth build's arsenal", yeah, and good luck with any mob resistant to fire. I f you want a serious fire incantation from the beginning, grab flames of frenzy. Tons of aoe damage, tons of poise damage and it requires less FP to cast. Even with the small % of damage black flame deals (which ironically, is the only viable godslayer spell) it cannot hold its own against FoF cast with its seal or dragon seal at high arcane.

                      Anyone else wish that the glow around the seal was like frenzied or dragon communion seal, except black flame? The standard yellow glow of the seal just doesn't fit the themes behind godlslayer spells and the godskin apostles.

                        I agree, however the phrasing could use some work, especially the part that starts with" sure... ". Also the" boost incantations that aren't all that good" is subjective and should be removed.

                            at 18 str 40 dex 21 int 42 Fai 16 arc, there seem to be a few other seals with higher scaling values, but it seems this seal consistently has the highest bonus damage on weapon buff incants (bloodflame, electrify arm, ESPECIALLY black flame blade ofc). not sure why the scaling is showing so much lower than it really seems to be, but worth noting

                                I find it Ironic that the 'Godslayer' seal is the second-best pure faith seal, what do you have faith in, if you're slaying all gods?

                                  So how does this affect Black Flame Blade? Just a 10% dmg increase over the fire dmg? Does it affect the DoT too?

                                      Seems to have the highest spell buff at 30 faith, which is the bare minimum to use every single sorcery. Haven't tested IRL yet but this seems to be the answer if you are looking to mix some lesser incantations with sorcery.

                                        The Godslayer seal does NOT boost Blackflame's Protection. I just compared the numbers between Godslayer ,Gravelstone, and Clawmark Seals. They are exactly the same.

                                          Balanced arcane/faith with dragon communion seal deals more damage than pure faith with this using godslayer incantations. Very disappointing. This needs a drastic spellbuff, it has the worst spells so it would be appropriate to have at least a 20%

                                            It says the Incant scaling from +15 to +16 is 159 to 232 but at +16 mine is still around 170 or so. Can anybody explain?

                                              How are we seeing that high incant scaling? My godslayer seal is only 60 scaling. Is it because I have too low of faith (22 atm)?

                                                I tested this and the damage increase to the Godslayer’s incantations is 10%.

                                                Also, the guy below me is incorrect. The Godslayer’s seal (GSS) will always do more damage when casting Godslayer’s incantations. When casting them on the GSS at 80 faith the scaling is 362 vs the Erdtree at 353. This also applies to the stacking dual wield buff.

                                                      Wanted to test this myself to see if Godslayer's Seal, Finger Seal or Erdtree Seal were better than the others for generalist use of mixing different incantation schools. Hope to help people reach a conclusion. Going to be posting this on their respective pages for visibility.

                                                      Testing at different levels of Faith show that, upon being upgraded equally with the same Faith (for the most part), Godslayer's Seal is just every so slightly better than Finger Seal by a few points on Incantation scaling (286 vs 291 at +25 for both, 60 faith). The difference is smaller at lower levels of upgrades (like 1 point of scaling difference at +0) but Godslayer's is better by that tiny margin and has the Godslayer damage boost for every level of upgrade and faith.

                                                      Erdtree Seal only beats out Godslayer's at 69 faith (hehe funny number) by 1 point at +25 for both once again, and goes up to a 24 difference at 80 faith (329 vs 353). You also have to consider Godslayer's boost as well. After testing at basically every faith level from 69 to 99, Black Flame incantations do more at every level, but the difference is incredibly tiny to where if you're at that high level of Faith, it's not gonna matter, especially since you'd be using it to mix schools anyway. Sidepnote: the scaling difference between Erdtree and Godslayer's is less at 99 (12 point difference), which is extremely weird but shouldn't really matter unless you really, really want to max out your faith past the soft-cap.

                                                      Or you can just equip Godslayer's in your off-hand for the boost lmao

                                                      In conclusion, Godslayer's is just plain better than Finger Seal whenever you can equip it. Why this balance is like this, I have no clue.
                                                      Erdtree Seal is better than Godslayer's at high faith (>=69), and gets much stronger up to 80.

                                                      Godslayer for low to medium Faith, Erdtree for very high Faith for generalist incantation users.

At 30 faith and 28 str I do more damage with the clawmark seal +3 than the godslayers +3, even with the black flame spell. E and B scaling should be better than D and D. Even if it's not, then the black flame shoud be doing more on the Godslayer's at the very least. Doesn't make any sense to me. Sucks because I use black flame and I want to use this seal, but it's just not good for whatever reason. Maybe at higher levels of faith and at higher + levels it gets better?

At 30 faith and 28 str I do more damage with the clawmark seal +3 than the godslayers +3, even with the black flame spell. E and B (godslayer) scaling should be better than D and D (clawmark). Even if it's not, then the black flame should be doing more on the Godslayer's at the very least, especially when you factor in the 27 faith requirement just to use it. Doesn't make sense to me, because I really want to use this seal, but it's just not good somehow.

                                                                • The Incantation scaling mentioned here is weird. I tried to edit it but it doesn't make sense to me so I left it how it is.

                                                                  At +10 it showed me INC 178

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        This thing has some strange scaling.

                                                                        At +0 it had low 60 inc scaling, much lower than two finger

                                                                        At +6 it has a couple more points than two finger +6, making it better for normal incants and MUCH better for black flame. Very strange.

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          I could be wrong, but I have the Finger Seal @ +12 and the Godslayer's Seal @ +12, and you'd think that the "base"/non-specific Seal would have a higher incant scaling, but it turns out the Godslayer's is higher despite the fact that it gives a boost to a specific type. Right now the Finger Seal is 179 while the Godslayer's is 181. Using Lightning Spear, my damage with Godslayer is like 717 while Finger is 707.

                                                                          Just something that to me seems weird, but just a heads up. I haven't compared to any other seal though, but at least right now, it seems like even if you just want a general purpose seal (and not specifically godslayer magic), Godslayer's > Finger.
