Godslayer Incantations are generally dark, fire-aspected spells wherein the caster conjures black fire, which will deal flat fire damage and cause foes to lose a percentage of their HP when hit.

Spellcasting Restrictions

  • You must have a Sacred Seal equipped to cast godslayer incantations.
  • Godslayer incantations require Faith to use.

Notes & Tips

  • Offensive godslayer incantations deal percent HP damage, making it valuable against targets with high HP, such as bosses. In multiplayer, effectiveness is tripled due to enemy HP scaling based on the number of players.
  • Black flame from these spells counts as fire damage, meaning it will be buffed from effects like Fire Scorpion Charm or Flame, Grant Me Strength.
  • Godslayer's Seal provides a 10% boost in effectiveness for all godslayer incantations, including non-offensive ones.
