Just as there are several different types of weapons in Elden Ring, there are also multiple types of magic, with one of them being incantations. Players that want to create a build that focuses on dumping points onto their Faith stat will find incantations becoming a regular part of gameplay, so it is essential to know how to use them. This guide will tell players how to use incantations in Elden Ring.
How To Use Incantations In Elden Ring
Incantations are spells tied to your Faith rather than your Intelligence stat and can be gained through many different means. Some are simply found as an item in the world, usually dropped by Golden Scarabs, but there are also ones that you can gain from NPCs. Brother Corhyn and D, Hunter of the Dead at the Roundtable Hold have a few that you can buy at the start of the game with you able to find Prayerbooks around the world that can be brought to Coryhn or Myriel at the Church of Vows to add more incantations that you can learn.
In order to actually use an incantation, you will need to first both equip the spell itself and have a Sacred Seal. Sacred Seals is a weapon type that is to Incantations that Staffs are to sorceries. It is your catalyst that you need to have in your hand actually to perform the spell. The Prophet and Confessor starting classes both come with a Sacred Seal by default. You can equip your incantations at any Site of Grace by heading down to the “Memorize Spells” section and selecting the ones you want. Each incantation takes up a certain amount of memory slots, so to wield more of these spells, you will need to have higher memory slots found in the world, usually atop Rises.
Elden Ring is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
