Incantation Scarab is a Helm in Elden Ring. Incantation Scarab has an intricate design of a scarab that can be worn over the warrior's head. Incantation Scarab protect the player's head by applying various defensive properties, it also changes the appearance as well when it is equipped. Some armor pieces may be available to both genders but may be slightly different for male and female characters.

These scarabs roll clumps of incantations during their labors.

      This doesn't help with spells that when held increase its duration such as Unendurable Frenzy or the Dragon Breaths. Only the initial cost to cast is reduced but the amount consumed for holding it down stays the same.

        Using on my Black flame Blade build, with the primal glintstone Blade (can be traded by the ceruleam ember medalion to counter the Hp debuf) this combo alows me tô cast Black flame blade like infinite times, its a terrible build i know, but its really fun to me, since i use Black flame blade for the First time i aways try to find ways to increse this spell eficiency...

          You know what even though its a terrible helmet that's in major need of a buff I will still run this for the sole purpose of having a piss colored dung beetle on my head

            Seems all the scarab's damage increase is hardly worth it for their benefit. Of course if you don't plan on getting hit go for it. But mainly you'll take a lot more damage since this item isnt only increasing damage taken but also taking the place of another head piece

            • Anonymous

              Spell cost reduction seems pretty meh in this game. Sorcerers might benefit more because they can't trade fp for hp.

              • Anonymous

                15% less fp? Sounds good right? But what if i rephrased this helmet as a head piece that:
                1: not only occupies your head slot but also
                2: INcreases the damage you take,
                3: you have to do some stuff to get,
                4: looks like trash,
                And 5: gives you the equivalent of like 6 mind ONLY on specifically mono faith builds.
                So yeah, not the best. Useful for challenge runs and full casting builds if you dont mind taking more damage.

                  Pretty damn good for an dagger & beast seal. Only problem is finding armor fitting.
                  currently wearing the morgot, just need something yellow n low weight.

                    The wiki says that the painting is located in the "Artist's shack", what it doesn't say is that the one you need to find is in Limgrave, not Liurnia as the link shows.

                    If you want to see where exactly, click on the paintings name and locate the shack through that page.

                    • "As a scarab approaches death, it abandons its rolled treasure and stretches its wings wide for long journey to its home nest"

                      This sentence let me think that - MAYBE - if you wear it a certain time, something happens with the helmet.. sounds like something for me.. any answers?

                      • Tested March 23rd 2022, this seems to be working and is no longer broken

                        Blessing's Boon reduced from 30 to 26
                        Dragonclaw reduced from 42 to 36
                        Rotten Breath reduced from 36 to 31

                        These values seem to roughly align with the stated 15% reduction

                          The Incantation Scarab helmet is NOT bugged, it does reduce FP cost when using Incantations while equipped, I tested it with lightening bolt several times and it gave me an extra cast every time.

                            I don't think the ghost will appear if you've progressed far enough in the story for the world to undergo a major visual/environmental change. I have the painting and have visited the grave but the ghost won't spawn.

                              "(This item is bugged - the reduce FP is not applied on incantations nor spells - March 2022)"
                              It will always be "bugged" in a way

                              • Anonymous

                                It says its bugged, but it very well could be meant to be similar to farron ring where it reduces fp for weapon arts

                                  Comparing this to the Banished Knight Helm, equipping this dropped my damage reduction by about -10%
                                  Not sure how much it reduces FP cost by, but looks like 10-15%?

                                  Not worth it IMO, but could be if you think wearing a bug on your head is funny.

                                    found one of these after accidentally striking a ghost sitting on a chair in front of some graves northwest of the seaside ruins just south of lake argheel.
