Incantations are a type of Magic in Elden Ring. Incantation spells are typically dependent on the Faith stat, and have a variety of effects (such as healing, curing status effects, dealing damage, and enchanting people or weapons). Incantations are cast using Sacred Seals. Incantations in Elden Ring are a combination of what would be Miracles and Pyromancies from past Souls games. You will find familiar favorites, as well as new ones. 

Incantations Trainers

Most Incantations can be acquired from different NPCs that act as trainers and sell you Incantation spells. Here is a list with all Incantation trainers in Elden Ring:

Of these trainers, a select few have the ability to learn from prayerbooks and grant access to new Incantations:

      **** amazing spells and incants that you can only get lategame.

      All my homies hate only being able to use my coolest and best stuff on like 15% of the game.

      • Anonymous

        tying cast speed to dex was a stupid fcking idea, this **** mechanic only exist to make the life of faith builds even more miserable. Mages have fast damaging spells with great tracking and hitboxes, while faith users have slow telegraphed spells that are easy to roll and deal mediocre damage at best, yet it is the mages who get a staff with 40 cast speed and easily reach cast speed cap while also having another weapon. Faith users meanwhile get fcking nothing, you need to waste a talisman slot just so the spells aren't completely useless. The funny thing is that incantation were even slower before patches, which makes me question if devs have even a slightest idea of remotely balanced experience. Dex affecting cast speed shouldn't even be a thing, it makes balancing spells a convoluted mess.

        • Anonymous

          Yes sorcerer's can hit more often and faster... But faith builds do shid like run from your gank around a corner and poise cast lightning storm or greyolls..

          • Anonymous

            did an invader build with a ton of faith and mind where i just cast buffs on nearby enemies, it was a very tricky and unique playstyle to say the least

            • Okay, I've done some testing and I have to ask, WHAT do the numbers in brackets (Parentheses) mean?
              I know what it means in game, sure, it's the cost to charge or chaincast the spell, but on the wiki? I haven't a clue.
              For Example:
              Rejection says it has an FP cost of 9(40), but cannot be chain casted, and while it can be charged, this doesn't effect the FP cost.
              Black Flame's Protection says 30(20) but cannot be chain casted or charged. nor does it's cost change when reapplied.
              Dragonbolt Blessing says 20(4) but cannot be chain casted or charged. nor does it's cost change when reapplied.
              Flame, Protect me says 30(32) but cannot be chain casted or charged. nor does it's cost change when reapplied.

              So do you see why I'm confused? oh and here's another things: Wrath of Gold says 40, and it CAN be charged, but it doesn't change the cost, so some of these are right. Are these second FP costs just typos? and if so, how? That's an incredibly strange mistake to make.

              • Anonymous

                Look I enjoy my faith build as much as my int one... But I shouldn't have to pre cast endure for more than half these incants to be viable against hyper agressive bosses,which are many, knowing a trade or stagger out will happen. If it isn't immune to holy waves of gold is the only slapper you don't need to almost always trade with.. a lotta these need damage negation, hyper armor, or more cast speed .. badly

                • Anonymous

                  Some of these are half decent... The main thing is a lot of incantations leave you vulnerable for taking DMG and infact, with highest investments, do about the same DMG as AoW's that work for cheaper fp and in a fraction of time... Still needs more love in a lot of spells. Hopefully the patches keep coming

                    incants: do you want to shoot fire, lightning, frisbees, boulders, or become a dragon?

                        I am (again) the guy who posted incants>sorceries. Just wanted to say, whoever replied “cool nobody asked”, I agree. I am a nerd. Also I have no problem with people who play sorceries, I simply enjoy incants far more. But that’s my personal opinion.

                        • Anonymous

                          I’m (again) the guy who posted incantations are better than sorceries. This is specifically a reply to the first reply to my previous incantation>sorceries rant. Even if I relied on summons ,(which I dont) it sounds to me like you rely on meteorite of Astel and comet azur. If anything is OP, that is. Also Honed bolt>Swift glimstone shard. Ya know why? More range, far better in pvp, and much better crowd control. Also, yes, rock sling was beat by ekzykes decay. By a very long shot. With Lords Divine Fortification, the elden beast’s spells can literally be facetanked and Radagon’s aoe’s are pretty much nothing, and you want sniping? Give lightning spear or frenzied burst a try. Giantsflame take Thee is unmatched, and incantations can heal you. Golden Vow is the best buff in the game without question.The only good buff sorceries have doesn’t exist.

                            The Poison Armament description says "Dropped an invisible scarab beetle on the northwestern shore of the Aeonia Swamp in Caelid, near the Street of Sages Ruins" I've been running around the north western part of the map for like 5 minutes then I checkd the page for the incantation and it says Northeastern, and the location in the map is also on the north eastern part. Fix this description.

                              As human history shows: intelligence is for nerds and faith is pretty cool.
                              However, in this games world faith actually does something besides nice thoughts.

                                I’m the guy who posted the “Incantations are better than sorceries, prove me wrong” comment. Rock sling: Beat by Elzykes decay, giantsflame take thee, and ancient dragon lighting strike when it comes to melting. Swift glimtstone shard: Beat easily by honed bolt. Loretta’s Sorceries: Beat by Ancient dragon lightning strike in power and AOE. Carian blades: I’ll give this one to you, they’re really good, but bestial sling is better short range because of insane poise damage. Blasphemous Blade gets a 40% buff just using flame, grant me strength, I’m pretty sure immutable shield can compete with scholars shield, and don’t even try to compete with golden vow, and there is nothing that trivializes the final boss like lords divine fortification and ancient dragon lightning strike. I rest my case.

                                  A gravity spell that increases weight and poise by a ton but makes u far heavier, or one that makes u a lot lighter.

                                    Would be cool to have some gravity buffs something that gives more poise/ less weight or a gravity spell like glint blade phalanx where you can cast and have like 3-4 small tracking meteors floating around you as you run or a meteor spell kinda like the flame fell god or rannis dark moon would be cool too turn into a metor for a second like rahdan

                                      Hear me out... it would be a dope passive buff if weapon buffs like electric armament, cragblade, etc enhanced the blocking ability of weapons themselves...

                                        Sorcerys are basically just the same projectile reskinned or useless.
                                        It is powerful but boring and it isnt helped by the fact that the bigger or interesting spells dont have the damage to justify using them over glintstone pebble number 3. Or they are comer azur.

                                          its a shame you need to invest so much int for a pure holy build. you are basically forced to use SONAF or infused clayman spears to make any use of all your stats.

                                            Incantations are better than sorceries. Prove me wrong. Show me a sorcery with as much utility as lightning spear or golden vow or flame grant me strength or bestial sling or catch flame.

                                                      Anyone else notice that in-game incantations are sorted by "purity," for lack of a better word? Two Fingers and Erdtree incantations are at the very top while Three Fingers, blood and dragon communion incantations are the bottom. It's similar to sorceries where you'll glintstone sorceries in the highest and death sorceries in the lowest row.

                                                        a quick tip: if you want to use a buff before a fight as pure melee or sorcerer, just jug a faith- knot tear for extra 10 faith. No need to spend points in faith at all. You can apply most buffs 2 or 3 times while tear is active as it lasts for 3 minutes

                                                          you know, the attack the dragon lord does 99% of the time

                                                            Regardless of what build you're using, packing some kind of projectile is an invaluable asset. Many bosses are insufferable to deal with in melee, so attacking them with range allows you to control the fight on your own terms. I would recommend magic over projectiles, as FP costs nothing to replenish. — Courh the Explorer

                                                              What are some of the incants that create a lot of smoke to hide your actions? Darkness is good, but pretty expensive. Black flame ritual needs to much faith. Maybe some of the giant's incants? They create quite some smoke on impact. Just want to chain it into crucible horns or honed bolt. Perhaps there is an item that does that?

                                                                  Dragon Tail swipe attack (Ideally something cheap and quick that knocks back to give space to cast a damaging dragon spell).

                                                                    I remember the strong overpowered ds2 pyromancies, with the right build these bad boys could wipe out anything, without the need for faith, or fp!

                                                                    But now, pyromancies are merged with miracles and cost fp WHICH SUCKS!

All of that to find out that you can't add one of those bonuses from an Incantation to any weapon with an Ash of War attached. I'm leaving this here so others don't make the same mistake.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        * Bestial Sling
                                                                        * Stone of Guranqq
                                                                        * Catch flame
                                                                        * Magma Breath (normal and Theodorix version)
                                                                        * Honed Bolt
                                                                        * Dragonclaw
                                                                        * Bloodflame claw
                                                                        * Black blade

                                                                        Other notes
                                                                        * Bestial sling is best for the start of the chain, as it's one of the few spells where the initial cast is faster than subsequent casts. It can also be used off a sprint, roll, or jump.

                                                                        * While dragonclaw *can* be chaincast, it only has a single followup, and you'll end up stuck with the crappy followup with the ridiculously-long recovery time. Personally, I put dragonclaw as my last listed spell so I have the option to chain its start with bestial sling.

                                                                        * Stone of guranqq is a nice followup due to decent poise damage, making it one of the best options for enemies rolling away. It can also be free-aimed intuitively.

                                                                        Please feel free to chip in other things you find for our fellow faith brothers.

                                                                        • Anonymous

Triple Rings of light requires 23 of both int & faith, and Radagon's rings of light takes 31 of each! That's the equivalent of the spell requiring 62 of just one. Having to invest so heavily in two stats just to cast a few spells isn't worth it, they're just not good enough to warrant it, and there's only 1 weapon in the whole game that scales off of both int & faith. It's objectively worse than just going full int or faith. I don't know how From dropped the ball so hard. They already had a good system for hybrid int/faith builds in Dark Souls 2 (hexes) and in this game they ruined it. I really hope in future DLC they add in more options for this, it sorely needs it.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

Both Giant Crusher and Tree Spear can be buffed with a holy buff which makes it look exactly like the weapons he uses (Tree Spear's Ash Of War is a holy weapon buff) but Carian Knight Sword cant be buffed sadly :(

The Dragon Inc's do astounding damage in both PVP and PVE and are lightning damage which is one of the less resisted damage types, or the Communion Inc's which are both spamable and proc status effects, not to mention the Blood Inc's which can cheese PVP/PVE themselves. Almost any Incantations can be quick casted using Beast Sling which is one of the best Incantations in the game due to its versatility and low stat costs, and there are 400 different buffs for any and all occasions. and to top it all off Law Of Regression is a Incantation which puts it on our list of why Incantations are just as good if not better then spells

                                                                                • I'm pretty sure they had rushed the incants because sometimes they don't work the intended way, but they are still viable if you have the right set-up, but they should allow us to use incants faster with a new talisman or armour set since some incants take too long actually activate, thus making you open to anything ranged such as bolt of gransax and any bow it seems pretty unfair that they made incants take a long time compared to sorceries with everything else I believe they should have more seals and more faith scaling incants instead of int which would make incants more viable for a faith build and other builds that have a high faith stat

                                                                                  • Anonymous

The pure faith scaling seals should really have their incant scaling buffed. Sorc and Melee builds do the same damage for 20~ less stat points.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      You have all damage-types AND all statuseffects in there and they all feel so different, whilst sorceries almost always feels like another kind of blue bullet or sword.

The ones we have right now are so diverse in mechanics and design, I love it. It makes me so excited to see what new incantations / spells will be released with DLC.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            I know everyone's said it a million times. But I think even more casting speed needs to be added to incants. Now that sorcery can viably pull off a lot of maneuvers in fast bosses, it's about time faith got that treatment too. I feel like a lot of the incants are even slower than colossal weapons and do a 3rd of the damage a colossal would've done.

                                                                                            • Anonymous

Dont get me wrong my faith/int build is probably my favorite character but I really wanted to make a full Faith build using holy and black flame.

Would have been nice flavor wise if you got one or two that you could use. or some sleep and/or haligtree incantations in general.

                                                                                                • Quick question I could not find the answer on the wiki or the forum. I have tried to increase the damage of Flame Sling by increasing faith (since it is an incantation) but the damage stays the same. What am I missing?

                                                                                                    • There's a few skills/incantations that enemies can do that we can't it seems. Like the Cleanrot Knights that summon a line of holy swords out of the ground etc. Really hope they add them in as a patch or even dlc.

The ones that "Can be followed up immediately" or "allows one follow up attack" can be casted in succession without lag mixmatching. As a note. The magma breathe incantations can NOT be followed up but can be chained into for a lag free startup.

                                                                                                          I personally carry beastial sling, catch flame, magma breathe, and honed bolt.

                                                                                                              • Anonymous
