Elden Ring Magic: What ER Spells could be like

Magic in previous titles

FromSoftware began this journey with a rather limited selection of gear in Demon’s Souls and expanded it exponentially for subsequent Dark Souls titles. So, their “under 80” collection of weapons and 18 Armor sets became “over 220” weapons and over 90 Armor sets.

The increase in the quantity of gear didn’t necessarily mean a reduction in quality, as special effects continued to pop up and weapons acquired special skills to enhance their movesets.

Additionally, Bloodborne introduced the concept of “Trick Weapons”, limiting the player’s arsenal but allowing each weapon’s moveset to become truly intricate and unique.

Magic on the other hand has undergone less radical changes, with the main “Miracles” for buffing and healing and “Sorceries” for offensive magic becoming a norm. Dark Souls experimented with different schools of magic, introducing pyromancies and hexes in an attempt to diversify the caster’s options, and make casting possible for non-mage builds.

 

The Magic We Will Surely See

There will likely be new and unexpected gear in the game, but first let’s discuss the equipment and magic you will surely see in Elden Ring.

“There will be a Plethora of weapons, magic and builds, and a focus on RPG elements. FromSoftware expects equipment variety to be larger than Souls in this regard.” – From announcement interviews

Magic we expect to see because of previous games:

  • Healing Magic
  • Self-Buffs
  • Stealth Magic
  • Resurrection / Second Chance Magic
  • Soul Spears and such direct hit magic missiles
  • Shielding Magic
  • Return to checkpoint Magic
  • Elemental Magic (Lightning, Fire)

 

Elden RingMagic: What could be completely New

Of course even if we’re expecting familiar systems and mechanics, we are certain FromSoftware will treat us to new and interesting concepts. We are hoping to see them stay true to their “biggest ever” claim from the announcement and deliver on a scale that no other souls game has before.

To this end, here are some of the concepts we would really love to see explored

 

Enhanced Magic

Spellcasting has become rather stale, and I would love to see it buffed to provide more for the aspiring mage. My first idea on this regard is to enhance the animations and scale of magic. Since the game has a day-time cycle, we could be allowed to cast “daily” spells that have a significant effect on the world: let me increase loot chance, prevent rain, create darkness in an entire region so stealth is easier, etc

 

New Elemental Magic

So far, magic has been “light, dark, lightning, fire”. It’s time to get ice, water, earth, poison, etc into the hands of spellcasters as well. Crowd Control freeze spells, tidal wave or cleansing water spells, and of course Norse-themed druid earth and nature magic could give the Elden Ring magic schools a completely new feel

 

NPC Equipment & Magic

Boss Souls have been used to craft weapons and magic, and in some instances obtain special Armor. What I would like to see added to this system is the temptation of an evil playthrough where murdering specific NPCs gives the option to obtain special and unique gear and spells. Let Bosses and NPCs alike be fair game for the gear-obsessed, and allow us to craft many armours, weapons and spells from their life essence.

 

So what do you Think?

Your equipment and loadout are an integral part of gameplay. So now we want to know what you think: What will the Equipment of Elden Ring be like? Are you expecting anything new? What was your favourite upgrade system? What are your most wanted changes to the Armor, weapons and magic, and what do you really, really want to keep the same? Let us know in the comments

      Would love to see ice magic in game since most Souls games have frost build-up/ice weapons. Spells for mage and warrior builds. For the mage maybe summon giant shards that crash down from above or maybe conjure a fog cloud that slowly moves away from the caster causing frost build-up and can possibly freeze opponents solid making them brittle/guaranteed crit. For the more melee oriented builds have frost weapon enchants or an armor buff that coats your armor in ice reducing damage and causing frost build-up on melee attackers. All in all, would be happy to see more elemental types than the basic fire, light, dark, and lightning.

        The miracles look powerful for the most part, and in beast claw's case could perhaps use a nerf in terms of FP cost or damage. A number of the sorceries don't look that great though. The meteor spell has a long cast and seems to easily miss enemies, the bubble spell either doesn't do enough damage or doesn't linger in the air for nearly long enough, and the briar spell isn't powerful enough to justify such a large health cost. The blood magic spells need to be really powerful or no one will use them if they all cost that much health or more, plus FP.

          Magic looks so good and viable in this game. Remember how lightning arrow's main thing that makes it OP is that you can hold it? Well now you can charge your spells so you can mix up timings or try to roll catch.

            I hope they dont just throw pyromancy into a category with something else in final build. I love pyro I hope they dont neglect it.
