School of Graven Mages are strange objects animated through some form of sorcery. Their appearance is that of a spherical body of faces, resembling the stone crowns used by members of the Raya Lucaria Academy. They float around ominously, firing off magic bolts like a mortar, or releasing a deadly mist which damages when one gets too close.

 

 The primeval current is a forbidden tradition of glintstone sorcery. To those who cleave to its teachings, the act of collecting sorcerers to fashion them into the seeds of stars is but another path of scientific inquiry.

School of Graven Mages Notes & Tips

  • These creatures are most likely made up of Glintstone Sorcerers of the Olivinus Conspectus and Lazuli Sorcerers that studied at the Raya Lucaria Academy, and are a large clump of Olivinus Glintstone Crowns and Lazuli Glintstone Crowns. This may be the reason why the study of the Primeval Current was deemed as heresy and witchcraft.
    The Olivinus Conspectus primarily utilizes Star Sorceries while the Lazuli Conspectus is tied to the stars and the Carian Royalty.
  • Depending on which School of Graven Mages, they can have one of two attacks, one of which involves puffing out purple clouds that do continuous Magic damage, and the other involves them shooting a barrage of magical blasts into the air, which rain down on the surrounding area a few moments later. The cloud attack is similar to the Night Maiden’s Mist sorcery.

        Sacred blade ashes helps with killing it alot and it drops around 900 runes when killed. Just wait till it stops spewing the blue and run in to hit it as it goes back down to the ground. Avoid the spray but it seems to have a pattern to the spray directions

            Reminds me of natural caused phenomena "rat king", when many rats are tied together with their tails, it forms a grotesque rodent mass.

              I'm not convinced that these things were once sorcerers. Per the description, they are meant for guarding important magic. Each of the ones found in the game is acting in this capacity. With Sellen, my belief is that she attempted rebirth while in her puppet body, which triggered a trap laid by Seluvis. There is a note in his lab warning against touching his stuff, after all.

                Apparently these "Graven Masses" are the result of Sorcerers who tried to combine the power of their Primal Glintstone with others. What greed does to a mf.

                  So, as far as I can tell, these are actually amalgamations of mages that practiced primeval sorcery. Every reference we have seen in the game so far to primal, primeval, etc has all related to the crucible, which is a time before everything when all life was combined into one thing. If you follow Sellen's Questline, (SPOILERS) at the very end, the two banished archmages of the Raya Lucaria Academy will disappear, and Sellen will now be turned into one of these schools of mages. Graven just means to be cast into stone, AKA engraved. So if they are a school of mages (like a school of fish, but since mages are students, they are a school of mages, engraved into stone. As in the mages themselves have been turned into a single stone orb. It is my understanding by reading the item descriptions that this is the destiny of any sorcerer studying primeval current sorcery. I think the point of that sorcery is to recombine everything back into one, like with the crucible. I think that sellen combined herself with the two archmages and became the school of graven mages you find in the academy who is called Sellen. Also, you will find these creatures all over the lands between, and in the descriptions in the talismans it calls them the great mistake of the academy. As in the mages started to practice this, and it scared the academy so much, that they banished anybody who practiced it, all the way to the top.

                    I thought it was related to that one-eyed caterpillars and that fileds where you enter to fight some bosses!

                      Does anyone has name/page of the black iron spheres that are similar to this? Like the two you farm near Lenne's Rise?

                        I think this is a way for evil sorcerers to increase their magical power (or intelligence) by drawing power from other sorcerers they imprisoned in the sphere of faces. Essentially they trap other sorcerers in the sphere, and then they can add their power to theirs when casting sorceries. You can do something similar if you use the Graven mass talisman / Graven school talisman, which is essentially a smaller version of this sphere of faces. Also when you help Sellen to defeat the Witch Hunter Jarren, Sellen says that Jarren will be added to the "school", which likely means that she intends to imprison him in this sphere and use his power, as the Graven school talisman mentions the sphere is called "Graven school". In the end she ends up imprisoned.

                          Can anyone confirm if all of the Arcane Spheres shoot magic mortar shots at you? From what I have seen, only the one at Witchbane Ruins does and all of the others just spew sleep gas at you.

                            I think the enemy is called a "School of Graven Mages", at least that seems to be the case from the Graven-School Talisman's description.

                              I found one of them in Caelid in a canyon near the scarlet rot swamp near Sellia, the canyon was full of those constructs that normally guard evergaols + explosive constructs + this sphere of faces

                                Found one of these alone in one of those towers with the magically sealed entrance. I think it must be a sorcerer who delved too deeply into forbidden knowledge or something.

                                  One popped up out of the small pond just north of the Ainsel River Well for me last night. It's a weird enemy.

                                    They appear to be transmogrified of former academy students. You find a friend become one after a certain questline is completed. You can find lore that may hint about them on the graven talismans. I'm unsure if it's a punishment of those who dabble with the primeval current or more of a experiment gone wrong in the process.
