Now that you have the Terra Magicus, let’s find out how you can use it. As aforementioned, it is a Glintstone sorcery that creates a spherical zone. While you are in this zone, your magic damage will be increased by 35%.

Terra Magicus uses 1 slot and requires 20 FP to use. The best method to use this is to place it in an area where you can easily move around. This will allow you to deal enhanced magic damage to all enemies and take out bosses easily.

However, this spells works both ways. If the enemy stands inside the zone, their magic attacks will also be buffed. So, make sure that you force the enemy to move out of this zone or only use it when you are certain they cannot enter it immediately.

Otherwise, it can get quite awkward since you can die just as easily from your opponent’s magic attacks.


That’s everything you need to know about how to get and use Terra Magicus in Elden Ring. This is a great spell that boosts all your magic damage and allows you to destroy your foes. However, you must be careful that your enemies don’t step inside this zone or you can find yourself in a lot of trouble.
