Unseen Form is a Sorcery in Elden Ring. Unseen Form makes both your character and horse partially invisible, allowing you to move undetected. (This spell reduces the range at which enemies notice you, allowing you to get the drop on some and completely bypass others. They will still notice you and attack if you get too close, and can still hear your footsteps; also, Unseen Form has no effect on some enemies, such as bosses.)

 

One of the night sorceries of Sellia, Town of Sorcery. Makes the caster semi-invisible. While on horseback, effect extends to cover the mount. This sorcery can be cast while in motion.

The Sellian assassins considered every option that aided their dirty work.

 

Where to find Unseen Form

Where to find Unseen Form:

This Sorcery can be found in Altus Plateau at the top of the Tower after completing the Mirage Rise puzzle. When you reach at the location, although your map marks there is a tower, you will notice that there is nothing there! However, you will receive a map, called Mirage Riddle. You will have to interact with three Phantom crests.

  • The first one is next to that initial position, hard to miss.
  • The second one can be found by continuing to the west, near the rock wall. Enemies will spawn.
  • The final one, is near the Bower of Bounty site of grace. Starting at the Bower of Bounty site of grace, head directly south to the edge of a cliff. Here a small enemy will spawn. Once you see this enemy, head east along the cliffside. On the left side you will see a strange looking stone which you have to hit in order to reveal the phantom crest. The stone lies before the bridge and will likely have messages surrounding it.

Once you found all three, head to where the tower was supposed to be, to actually find it this time. Climb all the way to the top to find this sorcery, along with Unseen Blade and x5 Slumbering Egg.

      Also tested with Assassins Gambin + Unseen Form + Concealing Veil talisman in PvP and indeed you do become invisible at a certain range and have to be looking a different direction. Also this combo is very very effective in PvP I have never seen it be used, I started being accused of glitching because apparently this technique is still very unknown:) lets keep it like that :)

      • This spell, while situational, can be VERY useful for a pure spellcaster. Especially useful for the Ordina, Lithurgical Town evergaol.
        Keep in mind that ALL effects of this spell are negated entirely by Crepus's Vial, while ONLY the visual effect is negated by wearing a piece of the Black Knife set.

        • if you use assassin's aproach ash of war and then use this spell you become untargetable no matter the distance. If the order is reversed it doesn't work. Both effects are only 30 seconds so thankfully it's not too insane but it's another exploit.

            If you pair the Darkness incantation with the Assassin's Cerulean Dagger talisman you can execute entire swarms of enemies for free. Darkness makes enemies lose track of you even in the middle of combat, allowing you to casually circle around one and backstab them.

              are people okay with this in duels? it feels really stupid when i can't target the guy im dueling. maybe it's just a 'git gud' moment since you can free aim, but i don't like fighting the duelist and the camera

                If you are using either Crepus's Vial or Black Knife Assassin armor the spell doesn't make you partially invisible. Probably intentional so you can't be dead silent and partially invisible, kinda sucks in my opinon but hey ho

                  Good for NG+ when you're just trying to get through the gates of Stormveil to get to the shardbearer without wasting too much time. Only got shot with one ballista, versus all of them.

                  • This works in pvp but like the description states you are partially invisible so you have to use bushes and be careful with your movements. Very useful in tandem with the concealing veil

                      I used unseen form before I entered war dead catacombs boss fight with tree snake of hell. Snuck around behind him and frozen misted him to death.

                        Not that it matters for PvE anyway, just crouch normally or run even if they see you they won’t catch up.
                        What we need is complete invisibility for PvP, like Gravediggers ring in demon’s Souls

                          Does not appear to work at all. I've tested and it doesn't make you invisible, or even less visible at a distance. Crouching seems to work strictly better and with this plus crouching it also makes no difference. They react at the same distance and have the same reaction speed. Doesn't do anything in PvP. It certainly is nothing like Hidden Body from Dark Souls 3 as mentioned by someone else which grants total invisibility as long as you aren't within about 3-4 feet.

                            Wearing the black knife armor does not negate the effect of this spell. Archers were firing upon me while I wore this armor. Used the spell, they stopped firing.

                              Just tested to be sure, and Black Knife Armor doesn't negate the spell, just the visual effect of it. I tested at Divine Tower of Caelid: Center and I had to step much closer for the spear knight down the stairs to see me after casting the spell.

                                This spell is a game changer. Helps avoid targets nearly in their entirety, allowing you to pick and choose your fights.

                                  Handy for evading snipers, like those on the rooftops in the Evergaol to light torches that unlock the way to the Haligtree.

                                  • The Frenzy-Flaming Tower won’t affect you while you are using this spell… makes it much easier to navigate that area.
                                    It also works well during the first part of Haligtree, especially with that huge Oracle Envoy that normally bombards you on approach.

                                      Super useful, works like in DS3 - enemies take longer to react to you. Obviously they can still hear you if you are too close. The effect lasts much longer than in DS3

                                      • This spell doesn't make you invisible, just harder to see - eg. it prolongs enemy reaction time. If you need to rush through some mobs, this will help you do it. It won't help you finger but hole a mob while standing directly in its face.

                                            Since launch and even after 1.03, this spell has its effect nullified if you have Crepus's Vial on, which seems like a bug, because the combo of invisible body + silent footsteps has been a common thing across all past games.

                                            • for 1.03.1 the Crepus's Vial (talisman that elemenates sound) would deactivate the effect of this spell.
                                              So, just get the ashes of war version of it.

                                                They should've UN-nerfed this during the last update. Hardly works for sh*t, unlike in the other souls titles.

                                                  This does not work in pvp at all. I was 30 feet from a invader when i was in my sons game helping him and dude was literally locked onto me and running away. Pointless spell

                                                    is this any fun to use in pvp? i used to run a goofy solid snake build in 3 to try to get cheeky backstabs but so far i've either not seen a soul use this spell, or it's just doesn't have any visible effect player to player. anyone seen someone use this against them in pvp, and if so, how hard is it to spot them?

                                                      This thing work. I just wish there was some other source of this other than spell. It's just not very cool when you in a black knife set and you using fk stick too go invisible.

                                                        I tried this on bosses and some didn't saw me when I entered the room while others did, I used the given time to summon a spirit and they would agro it instead of me, so pretty useful for mages that need to set up damage boosts.

                                                          Just invaded a guy who’s phantom was completely invisible and backstabbed me. It was funny and I was still able to lock on but I have no idea how he did that. I remember there was some sort of staff that boosted invisibility spells. Is that what happened?

                                                          • I wish there was a visual effect when casted like Hidden Body from DS3. Would be easier to tell if the spell is still in effect without needing to look at the icon under your bars.

                                                                you could have this active with the talisman to make no sound and enemies will still do their instant attacks from around corners because its a lazily coded event trigger :D

Most mooks will only see you if you're within 10 feet or so. You can swing your weapon and cast spells without breaking Unseen Form, and this includes refreshing Unseen Form. Poison mist won't even draw aggro. Swinging and making noise will distract enemies and make them slowly investigate the noise, allowing you to sneak past guards.

                                                                  • The third one is not just "near the bower of bounty bonefire" it's inside an illusary rock. Maybe include that semi-important info next time.

                                                                      • Anonymous

This will usually help you to land the first blow and avoid being stunlocked by the enemy, and if you are fighting a stunlockable enemy, you can stunlock them yourself

I've tested the range at which a basic soldier notices me while crouching but still in view and it's pretty far off. They draw their sword and stand there but If you hide after being spotted in time they resheathe their sword and lose interest. When I have this spell active I can crouch and sneak past getting much closer to the enemy before they enter that same 'at the ready' stance of theirs. Crouching seems to be key to getting it to work though and you may want to find a hiding place to recast it since it only lasts 30 seconds and you have to slowly sneak while using it.

                                                                            • Anonymous
