With the addition of the Gravity Spells in Elden Ring, FromSoftware has upped its creativity game. Even so, players can now perform godlike feats of manipulating gravity to their own will. Whether it’s to blast foes with meteorites; pull them towards you for an opening; or still, if it’s to ride Torrent in case you’ve grown heavier, this guide will show you the best Gravity Spells in Elden Ring!
Gravity Spells are among the most potent Sorceries in Elden Ring, as they can dish out massive damage. But better still, they can blend in any caster build without sticking to the notion of a pure Gravity Sorcerer. With that said, let’s dive right in and ensure equipping a Meteorite Staff for what’s ahead!
Perhaps the best Gravity Spell is the simple Rock Sling. After all, it has the best range compared to other Gravity Spells and dishes out decent damage per FP cost. In addition to the generous stat requirements needed to conjure it, you can also cast it while moving. As such, this should be your go-to Spell if you prefer bombarding enemies from a safe distance.
In some instances, you’ll have to deal with magic-resistant enemies as a mage, but since you’re throwing rocks using Rock Sling, you’re also dealing physical damage. All this makes up for a powerful gimmick. This also means it has the potential to stagger enemies, leaving them vulnerable to a powerful critical attack.
Plus, it’s found pretty early in Caelid, sitting in a chest just north of the Street of Sages Ruins. What’s more, It’ll help you cruise to the endgame area. Additionally, it also proves to be a reliable Spell in PVP due to its fantastic tracking.
Next up is Gravity Well, which is more of a utility spell as it can pull enemies towards. It’s also a reliable crowd-control option that deals enough damage with high Intelligence. Requirement-wise, it’s not too demanding as it only asks for 17 Intelligence and has low FP cost.
The pull mechanic of this Spell is fun to play with as it leaves the enemies open for a counter. Amusingly enough, you can even yank down enemies near ledges that attacks with Bombs and Arrows.
To get it, you must beat the Lesser Alabaster Lord, which appears near the graveyard in Raya Lucaria Academy. So, take the route leading out from the Church of the Cuckoo Site of Grace, and you’ll encounter this enemy.
Meteorite of Astel
The Meteorite Of Astel plays out like the Comet Azur Spell, as your goal is to make quick work of bosses – especially the massive ones like Dragon bosses. It also requires a hefty Intelligence of 55 and is an FP guzzler, as players can bring forth the shower of meteorites for as long as they hold it.
In case you’re worried about exhausting your FP when using this Spell, chug a Flask of Wondrous Physick containing the Cerulean Hidden Tear. After that, simply cast the Spell in an infinite loop, and for 15 seconds, you’ll have an unlimited supply of FP.
Unfortunately, since you’re stationary while casting this, you’re also a sitting duck to the enemy. But since some enemies in Elden Ring need to die immediately, you have Meteorite Of Astel to give you a hand. To get it, you must beat the breathtaking boss, Astel, Stars of Darkness, in Yelough Anix Tunnel in the Consecrated Snowfield.
While the Collapsing Stars deals more damage than the Gravity Well Sorcery since it creates more projectile, the latter is more favored. After all, it does have its shortcomings despite putting groups of enemies vulnerable to melee Sorceries.
Its low consistency hurts its ranking as the homing projectiles are easy to evade, and all its damage is hidden behind them. Moreover, there’s also the 36 Intelligence required for it to consider. However, this is, first and foremost, a utility Spell used to set up powerful melee attacks. So, if you’re using it as a damaging Spell, you’re doing it wrong.
You can get your hands on this Spell inside the War-Dead Catacombs. To do so, you must go down to the Rot-filled area after crossing the infighting enemies. After that, stick to the west wall, and you’ll see it inside a chest.
There’s not much going for the Meteorite Spell besides the fact that it’s a tuned-down version of Meteorite of Astel, but acquired early-game. You have the same stationary charged cast, albeit with smaller and lesser meteorites, resulting in lower damage. Plus, the tracking’s even worse as some projectiles tend to miss the targets. But by all due means, feel free to use this Spell until you get its stronger counterpart.
To get this Gravity Spell, you must clear the Royal Grave Evergaol by beating the Onyx Lord in Liurnia of the Lakes. Again, it also requires 30 Intelligence and costs quite a hefty amount of FP to cast. So, there’s also this to keep in mind.
That’s all for the best Gravity Spells in Elden Ring. It would be unwise for any caster build to sleep on these Spells. While some are best used offensively, you can use the others to set up for more powerful Melee Attacks that can one-shot groups of enemies.
