Casting Time

Different spells will take different lengths of time to cast, typically with more powerful spells taking longer to cast. Casting Time can be influenced by a variety of factors, including:

Additionally, some slower spells can be quick-cast if used as part of a combo; e.g. any spell or regular melee → Carian Slicer, or Catch Flame → Magma Breath will result in much faster cast times for Carian Slicer and Magma Breath.
Dragon Communion Incantations and Scarlet Aeonia are not affected by different casting speed.

Magic Spells Notes & Tips Elden Ring 

FAQ: How do you buff a Black Flame Elden Ring?

  • Black Flame is featured in a number of Incantations that focus on using Black Flame against players. This is not limited to the Black Flame spell. Godslayer Incantations are the collection of spells that conjure black fire and can be considered when selecting spells for your Memory slots when keeping Black Flame in mind. The Best way to make sure you are optimizing your damage output with Black Flame is to create a complementing build around it. Items like the Godslayer's Seal scales primarily with Faith and Strength and specifically adds boosts to Godslayer Incantations.
  • Those who want to specialize in these Incantations would benefit with a starting class of either ProphetConfessor or Samurai. A Blackflame Apostle Build has been pre-made for players who want to optimize their Black Flame casting. This is recommended for players 50 and above and was designed to boost Bleed and Damage by pairing the spells and the Seal with any bleed weapon. Black Flame Blade has a very short cast time but very short duration. It does extra damage, and it's damage over time is based on the Max HP of the enemy, so it's more effective against high HP targets like Bosses and tough enemies, and is fantastic in Co Op where Bosses and enemies have even more HP. It also is good against enemies that can't Bleed.Black Flame is your ranged spell that does solid damage, and a bit of damage over time as well based on the Max HP of the target, so just like Black Flame Blade is good against high HP enemies. However, you'll use this on many enemies just to clear some out before engaging in melee combat. Catch Flame is great for enemies that are physical damage resistant, and is slightly cheaper than Black Flame. Use when you need fire damage up close.

      Either decrease spell damage or make them use more FP so you can be a mage without health and armor not a bullgoat spamming 2 shot spells.

        Lots of people hoping of Vow of Silence in the DLC. Honestly, I'd like it, but only if it has high enough requirements (25-30 Faith would probably be enough) that using it will actually shut down some of the user's options as well as their foe's. It was always pretty neat fighting Vilhelm in DS3 since he could shut down your spells but in doing so would also get rid of his own healing. If the DLC has enemies like that in it it would be super neat, since melee builds would have to face all the spells that their opponents can bring while magic builds would need to adapt to using their melee weapons but would be fighting a (moderately) easier foe.

          With we mages, trust us when we say that our magic can cover almost anything, including a huge variety of ways to kill someone.

            I praise Elden Ring for trying to formulate a Sorcery/Incantation/Skill for EVERY conceivable situation. Now you just need to figure out where each of them fit.

              i wish they would casting more engaging to use, the basic gameplay is still nearly 1:1 with how it was in demons. Melee combat has been fun from the beginning and has only improved while casting is still the same standing 20 feet from an enemy and watching yellow or blue arrows home in on an enemy. Still as mindless and effortless as it's always been.
              I would suggest making it so that manual aiming was improved, would make it much more fun to actually have to aim your attacks. Could make them more powerful to compensate for the skill floor being raised. More utility skills could be nice too like putting down a portal to enter, a lift to jump off or allowing the player to float.
              As it stands this is yet another game I'll never do a casting build because it's still the same experience as every other game, boring.

                The darkness and shadowbait spell should’ve been tools. Darkness would be especially good without having to use a spell slot. As for shadowbait, not much would change though

                  If facing the red albinaurics or any annoying crowd and you don’t have wave of gold use charged beast claw. It has good range and spread, and pretty cheap too. Besides it can be buffed by godfrey icon, beast seal and cinquedea.

                    So far I feel that most sorceries have a proper spot and explanation of their nature and connection to glintstone:

                    Thorn sorceries derive from blood, pain, blindness and a direct connection to the blood star which is apparently something different from the mother of truth (bloodflame). Red glintstone also appears in alberich set so that implies a star-like form derived from blood.

                    Crystal sorceries are depicted as an advanced form of understanding sorcery that is close the the primeval current

                    Gravity sorceries deal with meteors and gravitational forces, which can be seen as another form through which glintstone manifests by forces of push and pull as shown with alabaster and onyx lords, and there is also the fact that spells and astel descriptions tend to do some references to a “void” which is directly linked to the stars’ birthplace.

                    Death sorceries are seen as the result of burning bones to raise vengeful spirits and we’ve seen glintstone is residual life so it makes sense that ghostflame deals magic damage.

                    But I also feel gaps and some curiosities in regard to magma, moon, cold, bubble and night sorceries

                    Magma sorceries have the history of being ancient hexes brought into sorcerous use by rykard, having the gelmir staff which boosts them with a red glintstone, and a unique snake symbol when casting them. Besides there’s the fact that these are drawn from the magma of mt gelmir, but no explained relation to stars or glintstone directly besides the staff, unless lava can be considered as part of stars. Nor is there any link to why faith is a requisite for casting them unlike thorn sorceries.

                    Moon and cold sorceries derive from the moon itself and there are apparently two types of moons. Cold sorceries seem to derive from the dark moon. Now htf are moons related to glintstone idk honestly. But if stars are glintstone then maybe moons are stars of their own. Maybe.

                    Bubble sorceries have the notion of being “oracles” and cast by claymen, who were priests of the ancient dynasty, without any staff. The claymen are also vulnerable to holy damage so that’s odd, and I can’t help but notice how similar they are to oracle envoys bubbles. But beyond that there’s no explanation of what is their nature.

                    Night sorceries have the staff of loss which “misses” its glintstone but I believe it’s invisible. We also know these hail from Sellia which is culturally linked to the eternal cities. Besides they have the eternal darkness sorcery which is pretty unique and feels more akin to gravity sorceries. The rest are lore like another type of glintstone manipulation for the purpose of assassination.

                    Now both bubbles and night sorceries share the same symbol when casted, so they must have relation with the Uhl civilization that came before the eternal cities since the symbol depicts one of those giant thrones with skeletons found underground.

                    It feels kinda messy, like the balance between functional gameplay and lore notions is compromised in points like these. The lore of most of these sorceries will likely be expanded by dlc so that’s what we have for now, but I doubt much of this will be explained. Anyway the game is still very enjoyable in its lore and concepts

                          Things like crystal torrent, smarag and agheel breath, giantsflame take thee, wrath of gold, moon sorceries and bf ritual can become better if you employ primal glintstone blade and the head scarabs for incants and sorceries for a 35% fp decrease

                          I haven’t tested it fully on dragon communion incantations so I can’t really tell how worth it these two can become compared to their lesser versions’ efficiency (mathematically, since I suck at that) but their 18% raw damage increase could shine since fp cost in total would go from 216 to 138.

                          Of course there’s the detriment of lower hp but it’s pretty good in early-mid game when your fp can’t see high numbers.

                            In case nobody knew this by now, you can hold Up-D Pad to refresh back to the first spell in your Memory Slot.
                            This makes spells like Terra Magica or Golden Vow readily available at a moment's notice.

                              Hear me out: pair shriek of milos with bloodflame incants and dragon seal with high arcane and you got yourself a monster in pve.

                              Shriek of milos decreases resistances by 15% and that includes robustness.

                              This even shreds haligtree knights when using bloodflame talons to stunlock them without having to rely on their raw damage

                              But tbh you can do so with mohgwyn spear

                                Incantations are for having as much fun as possible with the game.
                                Sorceries are for deleting nuisance roadblocks that you spent hours trying to find a fun way to deal with, and just can't be bothered any more.

                                I really wish the latter wasn't as common as it is in ER, but at least we have a way around (most) badly-designed enemies / bosses this time.

                                  Pvp has ruined many spells that could’ve been good and I’ll never doubt it. Of course there are some whose designs were thought badly but:

                                  Flame of the fell god
                                  Stars of ruin,
                                  Founding rain of stars
                                  Elden stars
                                  Blackflame ritual
                                  AoTC: breath

                                  All of them ruined for not being able to implement good features that would otherwise make people complain more about pvp.

                                    Over half of these are only useful in pve I would like to see more pvp oriented incantations and an update to increase the casting speed on flame cleanse me and beast Constitution also increase the casting speeds of stuff like the fortification spells (not the stronger version) and increase the power you get from the weapon buff incantations like electric armament and make black flame blade last longer

                                      A Faith player and an Intelligence player were doing co-op.

                                      The Faith player began explaining why Incantations were the superior magic type. "I can cast group buffs and group heals for both co-op and Spirit Ashes! I have the best damage type variety of any build, and great status variety too. Not to mention I have better aesthetics. You cast with a stick, and I cast with my hands, so I'm cooler. Why would anyone want to play Intelligence over Incantations?"

                                      The Intelligence player sadly wasn't paying attention, because before the Faith player was even halfway finished speaking, the Intelligence player had already cast six times and killed the boss.

                                        I believe that certain sorceries could be better if they were AoW allowed for staves, like Lucidity, Starlight and maybe Thopps barrier. Putting these spells in a slot is not worth it since they’re of secondary use, and it’s a pain to look out for these while in combat.

                                          I wish they would add a vow of silence like incantation but not do any bs int requirement like with the law of regression incantation, just pure faith requirement or if they must at the very least give it a very small int requirement (or just for the trolls make it a sorcery but have it only have a faith requirement so its like the opposite to law of regression). Int has a way to counter faith by removing buffs (most buffs that are affected by law of regression come from incantations) so faith should get a way to counter spells through a vow of silence incant. It will also have a trade off like with law of regression preventing both people from using any kinds of spells just as law of regression does removing buffs from both parties. Im gonna be honest idk what im writing anymore or how to phrase it but yall get the idea, im mostly just tired of dealing with both mages and prophets(?) spamming the same 2-3 spells at me and whenever i try to get close speed away with light roll at Mach 2. Also its just a cool spell.

                                          TLDR: I want Vow of Silence in DLC but to have it without any bs int requirements like law of regression.

                                          This is just my opinion if u think it should be different say it in the comments this was not very thought out and just a throw in the dark. idk i hate spell spammers

                                            A 3rd school of magic would have been cool. Something called Curses or Hexes, put Magama, Death and Aberrant sorceries there as those are kind of blasphemy themed. Add some spell equivalents like a gostflame fireball, magma weapon buff, summon thorns around body that builds bleed to enemies you touch, attack with a magic scythe similar to carian sorceries, Deathbird scream similar to howl of shabriri but builds deathblight, rykard's snake chomp, Fia's themed grab attack that steals HP, more necromancy summons like the giant skeletons, dunno.... Int/Fth builds really needed their own thing.

                                              There really needs to be a whole class of magic that scales off of arcane. It was fine to subsume pyromancy into faith (and sorcery in the case of magma) since this isn't Dark Souls and the lore is completely different but having 3 magic classes was a good concept and it should make a return.

                                                So many incantations to boost fire damage, fire defense, cleanse statuses, but nothing to just buff the weapon with fire, we have to use a grease or an Ash of War that can't be applied to all weapons. Thank you Fromsoft, very cool.

                                                  So, let's break this down:
                                                  Strength & Faith go hand in hand for Incantation(s) since Strength improves your character's Physical Defense while Faith provides plenty of versatile spells and improves Fire Defense on top of it.
                                                  Dexterity & Intelligence go hand in hand for Sorceries since Dexterity improves the casting speed of your spells that you need to fast and hard, not to mention the Magic Defense.
                                                  It is possible to make a hybrid INT/FAITH build, if you don't mind wearing a Burger King mask and using Azur's Glintstone Staff in one hand and the Erdtree Seal in another.

                                                      Hey so I dont usually play with magic in souls games and I wanna give it a try on a more melee focused character. What should I use?

                                                        Srs question how do I do a playthrough focused on magic without dying of boredom? I want to try something new, but the most fun I had was clearing out Gatefront with the Lordsworn's Greatsword, and now I just want to do melee again.

                                                            They really didn't have to remove pyromancy. It was a cool additional playstyle that allowed true int-faith builds to exist. Int-faith that we have in Elden Ring is so underwhelming and disappointing.

                                                              Add poison magic to either intelligence builds or incantations builds. Add a poison staff like the ones mushroom worshippers use and allow us to use poison magic. Also there's barely any poison bosses in the game that has any interesting lore and unless we count rot as poison.

                                                              Anyways, my point is add mushroom poison magic attacks since they are already utilised in the game and therefore should be able to be learned by the player, lore wise.

But of course the scrubby Souls community would cry about something that makes the game objectively more interesting until it gets removed.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        I'm kinda torn on the spell list in this game. On one hand, I love variety. The sheer breadth of effects and flavor for spells unmached for games of this type, if not games in general.
                                                                        But the flip side is that some of the magic types feel same-y or cramped. Having only two spells works for something like Full Moon Sorceries, since they're supposed to be the ultimate in big f**k-you blasting sorceries, but the Claymen Sorceries, for example, feel like they were just tossed in to fill the gap of sorceries with an arcane requirement. On the other hand, some spells feel like they got grouped in with each other to pad out the sub-school size and not because they actually have a strong thematic tie to each other.
                                                                        Then there's the Dragon Communion Incantations + Placidusax's Ruin, which are certainly numerous and clearly connected, but they dilute the inherent "cool factor" of harnessing the power of dragon's breath over ELEVEN different spells when there's maybe three really distinctive effects between the lot of them. In contrast, simpler, less high concept ideas you might expect a few iterations of just don't have them. Outside of basic glintstone projectile sorceries and basic healing incantations, you're lucky to get a couple tiers of a spell. Weapon enhancements don't even get that much, and even Demon's Souls had two weapon damage buff spells.
                                                                        All in all, I think I'd rather things were pared down a bit if it meant each school of magic could feel complete, but not overcrowded and still retain its own identity. Even dark spells from DS3 managed this better than some ER magic subtypes, despite being split and assimilated into the three main spell types.

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          You know how Dragons Dogma had a light attack and heavy attack for archistaves which deal ranged magic damage so you could handle weaker enemies without needing to cast spells. I'd have thought by now they'd have done something similar with staffs, not super long range or high damage or anything, but something which means you can actually function as a staff user if you do run out of FP. Something cheap and cheerful that scales somewhat with INT and weapon level, means you'd have to actually find and learn your first spell and can 'finish off that group of mobs to get flasks back' because if you are a staff-and-robes purist and don't want subweapons or big bonks, you're stuck with a firm wack on the head until the next grace. The fact arrows and spells are still a finite resource is a shame.

                                                                          • Anonymous

Not counting the thorn sorceries because they're made of blood, Scarlet aeonia is the closest we get - and melinas healing tree which we don't even have access to.

                                                                            • Anonymous

Does equipping 2 of the same spell do anything (if it's even possible; haven't tried yet) or am I better off just selling any extra copies I get in NG+?

Im comparing my Inventory ingame with the Wiki to check what Items Ive missed, and because you can't sort Items by Alphabetical order in game, it becomes a nightmare.

                                                                                  By the way, the Gallery for Magic Inventory Sorted only has Incantations and is missing the Spells.

(Makes target attack all nearby targets) “Death Bird Rite of Burial” An ancient rite known only to the Death Birds in setting bodies alight with ghost flame and setting the spirit free. As the body burns the soul is freed and the lingering essence of life is given to the rite caster. (Sets nearby bodies alight with ghost flame, destroying them and returning a % of health and FP to the player) “Living Death” A sorcery of unknown origin that temporary gives the user an experience in being dead. The user is immune to all poison and status ailments but is weak to holy and cannot heal. (Become immune to all status ailments but cannot use any healing spells or items and receives 20% extra damage from holy damage). Yeah I know, it will never happen but nevertheless it just shows there’s room for creativity in the game.

I know the 'Magic by Type' section exists but that's as useful as the 'Magic Gallery' when you're trying to find which spells you're missing. I'd do it myself but I have no idea how to use the editor, skill issue.

                                                                                            Imagine playing Elden Ring as a pure caster.

                                                                                              I've played many magic users in games going back for decades and the BIG THING I notice about the spells/incants in this game is that ALL the good AoE spell/incants are weapon arts. Quite simply, there are no spells that can compare to Waves of Gold, or even Taker's Flame. I really only realized this when I watched a streamer playing in Farem Azula and saw him clear a hallway that had been difficulty for me with spells with one use of the Blasphemous Blade weapon art.

                                                                                              Most of the spell/incant AoE magics have strong RNG components. For example, Ancient Dragon Lightning Strike is random. Rain spells have small area and are random. Explosive Ghostflame has limiting pattern. It's pretty telling that to farm experience on the ledge, people use weapon arts. The best casting AoE's are the dragon breaths, but they have less range and seem a lot less effective. Sorcery casters are left out entirely when it comes to good AoEs. I think Taker's Flame is as good as any of the breaths and it costs a lot less FP if using the Carian Filagreed Crest. For me it hits for around 2700 damage and one-shots most end-game trash mobs. The same can't be said of any of the AoE spells/incants. There's no similar way to decrease FP on sorcs/incants w/o taking a HP hit.

                                                                                              I basically feel like anyone trying to play a pure caster gets shafted on AoEs because they have to rely on weapon arts to fill gaps.

                                                                                              • Anonymous

The game is great, but It could haver been the game off the decade, no exageration, but they focused too much on balance and left out the Fun factor at the side, giving a monotomous feeling to most of the spells,weapons.

                                                                                                    • Hoping the dlc adds more conjured weapon type spells, especially for incantations. All we get in ER is two bows (just another blue projectile), and gavel is just a worse aoe explosion than cannon that looks cooler, all the carian sword spells except piercer are reskins of ds3's sword spells. Iconic spells of ds3 such as lifehunt scythe, flame fan, dark edge, old moonlight were fun to get creative with in pvp but in ER all you can really do is abuse chain casting for melee spells to combo and now that's gone. One carian slicer does more damage than any of the ds3 magic I listed anyway, so you don't even have an incentive to try to experiment.

Except Sekiro... but I've pretty much abandoned it by this point... Maybe I'll come back again at a later time, but I've found myself incredibly bored with the entire thing because I feel like both builds I was most interested in attempting are almost crippled for a variety of utterly atrocious design decisions... I guess I think that being open world has multiplied and exacerbated the few issues that the previous games had, and nothing they've added has acted as any sort of counterbalance... I started a game, got all the way to Farum Azula, and then realized that I think I... I think I don't like this game... It's not a bad game, it's actually fairly good, but I was expecting a fantastic game, and the disappointment is overwhelming.

                                                                                                                  -Death/Magma sorceries and Holy Order incantations need int AND faith, cool, just like hexes and pyromancies from the other games right?
                                                                                                                  -a dedicated int/faith build is the most stat hungry build in the game, needing 50/50 int/faith to do good damage since the Prince of Death's staff has trash scaling, plus the added stats for mind and vigor
                                                                                                                  -You get a grand total of about 8 dedicated sorceries and 2 dedicated incantations, with all but 3 or 4 being good enough to warrant the massive stat dump (Triple Rings, Ancient Death Rancor, and Rancorcall) <-- 2 of these are basically the same spell btw and you can only get 1 early game
                                                                                                                  -The best of these spells are still only decent compared to the top tier incantations/sorceries with some of the genuinely being the worst in the game (Tibia Summons sadface)
                                                                                                                  and now for the worst part of all

                                                                                                                  -The Death/Ghostflame/Magma/Holy Order weapons DON'T EVEN SCALE WITH BOTH STATS, Helphen's Steeple, Death's Poker, etc only scale with int and the Magma weapons/Golden Order Greatsword only scale with faith
                                                                                                                  -You get TWO weapons that scale with int/faith and one of them is the ****ing Clayman's Harpoon
                                                                                                                  It's like they just forgot to actually add hexers/pyromancers

                                                                                                                  • Anonymous

So you could go arcane caster and be able to use the lower requirement incantations and sorceries but not being able to use the big bad versions without investing in int/fth. It kinda fits the idea of arcane being a more raw form of magic. Like wizard/cleric vs sorcerer in DnD. You kinda blend the lines between sorcery and incantation but don't have the knowledge or focus to be able to draw out the most power from either. It wouldnt have to be a weird behind the scenes calculation either it would just be like you can cast "X" if you have "Y" amount of int/fth OR "2•Y" arcane. I know it probably won't happen but I thought it was a cool idea.
