Elden Ring: How to Use Incantations

Using spells is quite easy in Elden Ring. However, if you are new to mage builds, you might be a bit confused about what to do. Worry not because we will show you everything you need to do step by step. We will also talk about what you need to cast these spells as well.

Memorize Spells

Memorizing Spells

There are tons of spells that you can find across the world of Elden Ring. Every spell requires you to have a different level of intelligence before you can memorize it. You will have a limited number of slots to which you can assign different spells to.

If you want to increase your slots, make sure that you find all the Memory Stones in the game. Doing so will give you a total of 10 Memory Slots. If you want to change your memorized spells, you need to do it the same way as you memorized them.

Using Memory Slots

Go to any Site of Grace and rest at it. Then, choose the “Memorize Spell” option and select which slot you need to assign an incantation to. Choose the spell and you will now learn it. You can swap between spells during combat like you would change armaments.

There are two types of Incantations – offensive and supportive. Depending on the situation, you can use whichever you prefer.

Find Sacred Seals

Find Sacred Seals

Like you need a staff to use sorceries, you need to have a Sacred Seal to use incantations. There are many types of seals that can be found throughout the game. If you want to go for this type of build, make sure that you choose the Prophet or Confessor starting class.

They start out with a Sacred Seal in their inventory. Otherwise, you can buy them from merchants, find them from enemies, and get them by exploring the map. Just like staves, each seal offers different benefits and drawbacks.

How to Use Incantations

Usign incantations

After learning the spells that you want, you can use them freely. Make sure that you have a Sacred Seal equipped. When using a seal, it will cast your currently equipped memorized spell.

To use the incantation, make sure that you select it and use your attack button. This will cast the selected incantation immediately. One thing to keep in mind is that some spells require a bit of casting time. So, make sure that you know what you are doing before using them.

Otherwise, you will be vulnerable and your enemy can easily hit you. Also, this will cost FP so make sure that you have a lot of charges in your Flask of Cerulean Tears.

While you can gain FP while resting at any Site of Grace, you need to use the Flask during boss fights. Otherwise, if you are going for an Incantation build, you won’t deal damage with melee attacks. Plus, you will find stronger spells the more you progress in the game.

So, make sure that you level up your Faith and Mind stats to make the most out of incantations in Elden Ring. The more Mind stat you put points in, the more FP you will have.


That’s everything you need to know about how to use Incantations in Elden Ring. The game offers tons of strong spells that you can use, so, make sure that you try all of them to see which one suits you best. Plus, you can always change them anyways so it’s better to find out which sorcery works well for you.
