10. Erdtree Heal (FP: 65, FAI: 42)
This Incantation heals HP approximately 5.90x the Incantation Scaling (sometimes in the thousands), not only for the caster but also for nearby allies. So keep that in mind if you’re fighting alongside summons!
To find Erdtree Heal, you must have defeated Maliketh, Black Blade of Death, and gained access to the alternative version of Leyndell – Capital of Ash. Erdtree Heal will be within the Queen’s Bedchamber.
9. Blessing’s Boon (FP: 30, FAI: 24)
Blessing’s Boon regenerates 8 HP per second for 90 seconds for the caster, cooperators, NPCs, and Spirit Summons, totaling 720 HP.
The casting process for Blessing’s Boon can be held before release, allowing friends to close in and gain the buff.
This spell is available to lower-leveled Faith users than Erdtree Heal but offers similar results.
Blessing’s Boon is sold by the tortoise Miriel, Pastor of Vows at the Church of Vows in Eastern Liurnia. It costs 4,000 Runes.
Elden Ring’s tortoise Pope Miriel has gained a cult following online, but here’s what happened when one player slayed him!
8. Rotten Breath (FP: 36, FAI: 15, ARC: 12)
Rotten Breath allows its caster to exhale a disgusting toxic breath over enemies, causing Poison buildup.
Rotten Breath is a Dragon Communion Incantation, so obtaining it is a little more complicated. Here’s our guide explaining how you can learn this powerful Incantation!
7. Swarm of Flies (FP: 14, FAI: 11, ARC: 16)
Casting Swarm of Flies will unleash a cloud of bloodthirsty insects that deals physical and slight magic damage. Additionally, Swarm of Flies causes Hemorrhage (Blood Loss) buildup.
This Incantation is located on a corpse inside a shallow cave on the east wall, north of the Palace Approach Ledge-Road Site of Grace.
And since it’s a bleed-based Incantation, you’ll want this gear that increases your power when nearby enemies are bleeding!
6. Aspects of the Crucible: Tail (FP: 32, FAI: 27)
This Incantation causes a tail to sprout from the caster’s body and sweep the battlefield, plowing through anything within its reach.
It is one of three Incantations used by Crucible Knights around the Lands Between and it is extremely effective.
It’s worth noting that Tail can be charged before being unleashed, producing a second, larger swiping appendage to really catch your foes by surprise.
This Incantation is only obtainable by killing one of the toughest early bosses in Elden Ring. The Crucible Knight imprisoned in Stormhill Evergaol in Limgrave holds the Tail Incantation, and he’s no joke.
If you’re struggling to kill him, join the club. If you want to bring him down, check out our guide to give you the upper hand!
5. Bloodflame Blade (FP: 20, FAI: 12, ARC: 10)
Bloodflame Blade imbues your current weapon with the Bloodflame buff, which, as the name suggests, causes both hemorrhaging and burning.
In fact, for a short time after each successful hit, the Bloodflame Blade Incantation will continue to cause the onset of bleeding for a short time.
This Incantation can be obtained by defeating a Teardrop Scarab located northwest of the Rose Church in Liurnia of the Lakes.
If you think this Incantation would suit your bloodletting Tarnished, follow our guide to find it in Liurnia of the Lakes!
Bloodflame Blade is especially effective on katanas, so Samurai should add it to their build. Here are the best Samurai builds in Elden Ring!
4. Frenzied Burst (FP: 24, FAI: 22)
Frenzied Burst allows the caster to shoot concentrated beams of fire from their eyes. This Incantation can be charged to great effect; 20% more damage dealt, penetration through enemies, and massive damage against shields.
Frenzied Burst is dropped by a Teardrop Scarab in Liurnia of the Lakes, south of the Church of Inhibition. Look for a collection of rats. It’s nearby.
From the Frenzied Flame Village, take the path on the west side of the village that goes up to the plateau. This is where the Church of Inhibition is located.
Some players are taking role-playing to extremes. Check out some created characters expertly modeled after actual superheroes… and Samuel L. Jackson!
3. Flame of the Fell God (FP: 20, FAI: 41)
The Flame of the Fell God Incantation launches a fireball that causes fire damage through the air, which explodes on contact knocking back enemies.
This Incantation is obtainable fairly early in Elden Ring but does require exceptionally high Faith stats.
To obtain the Flame of the Fell God, you need to defeat Adan, Thief of Fire, at the Malefactor’s Evergaol in Liurnia of the Lakes.
The Evergaol is located in southwest Liurnia, atop of cliff overlooking the water.

2. Greyoll’s Roar (FP: 75, FAI: 28, ARC: 17)
Greyoll’s Roar deals significant physical damage and slight magic damage while also debuffing your enemy’s attack power by roughly 20% and increasing damage dealt to them by 10% for a minute.
However, acquiring this Incantation is no walk in the park. You’ll need to defeat Greyoll herself, the mother of dragons. This enemy is located on the border of Caelid and Dragonbarrow, right beside Fort Faroth.
She is stricken down and can’t attack herself. The problem is her entourage of regular dragons who, despite beginning with half-HP, can overwhelm you with their numbers.
It is quite possible that you may be fighting multiple at once. Because of this, you’ll need to plan ahead. Bleed-based weapons and spells are incredibly useful against dragons, so perhaps grab some other Incantations off this list first!
Once Greyoll is dead, take her heart to the Cathedral of Dragon Communion altar in Caelid and cash it in for Greyoll’s Roar! The cathedral is located southeast of the Caelid Highway South Grace.
Want to practice killing dragons and make unlimited Runes in the process? This is how you can farm Runes from Elden Ring’s Sleeping Dragon!
1. Elden Stars (FP: 47, FAI: 50, Memory Slots: 2)
Casting Elden Ring summons a large golden projectile that will loom overhead, moving with the player and shooting smaller projectiles at your enemies.
These smaller projectiles deal minor damage, but unstoppable posture damage! Then, if the large golden projectile star makes contact with an enemy, the holy damage will be devastating!
Now this is a truly legendary Incantation. Requiring a huge level 50 Faith, only the serious worshippers will be able to use this spell.
Plus, the need for two memory slots ensures that this Incantation will likely be the showstopper in your spellbook. Within the game’s lore, it is the “most ancient” of the Erdtree Incantations.
Elden Stars is found in Deeproot Depths, west of the Great Waterfall Crest grace, at the end of a cave filled with ants. Don’t miss it!
Lacking the Memory Slots to optimize your magic build? Here’s one way you can easily gain a Memory Stone without risk!
And there you have it. The top 10 Incantations in Elden Ring! Remember, choose the ones that suit your playstyle best!

I agree with most of these but you're trolling with Elder stars and flame of the fell god

You can just climb the cliff behind Greyoll from the church below and smack her tail without fighting the other dragons. Use holy or black fire to do it quick. If you bring a friend you'll both get a tonne of runes. You can then swap hosts and get the runes again and again with all your friends.

No mention of lightning strike? Or black flame? Or really any of the good incantations
