Sorcery is one of the primary sources of power for ambitious tainted seeking to claim the Elden throne.
There are many schools of magical thought, each offering unique ways to manipulate the forces of nature and use them against your enemies.
First of all, you should choose based on the damage dealt – but once you get past a certain point, min-max values don’t matter anymore.
If you’re like me, you’re more interested in spells that make you look like a bad ass when cast.
To become an epic wizard in the Lands Between, you must master the ten coolest sorceries in the Elden Ring.
10 Carian phalanx
If it was up to me, I would recruit an entourage of bodyguards to aid me in my quest to become an Elden Lord.
Unfortunately, no one seems sane enough to follow a simple instruction like “make sure I don’t die,” so I have to fend for myself in a world of insane people.
A great alternative is the Carian Phalanx, a flashy spell that summons nine magical straight swords that will hover in an arc around you until it’s time to spring out and protect their master.
How do you get: Purchase it from Seluvis after completing a few steps of his quest line, or bring his Bell Bearing to the Twin Maiden Husks in the Roundtable Hold.
9. thorns of sin
Anyone playing an edgy character with anything less than virtuous motivations and a strong connection to the dark side of the Force should learn to use Briars of Sin.
This twisted sorcery summons tendrils of black thorns that spiral around the caster, while copious amounts of blood spurt everywhere.
Those at Raya Lucaria’s academy consider it blasphemous because it draws power from faith rather than intelligence, but no one can deny that it looks cool as hell.
How do you get: Briars of Sin is dropped by a Thorn-Fire Sorcerer a short distance northwest of the Artist’s Shack sanctuary.
8th. Old death rank
Death Spells are powerful spells devised by those who live in death to further their dark machinations.
Ancient Death Rancor is one of the most powerful and definitely the most noticeable.
A storm of angry spirits erupt from the wand, spreading “ghost flames” and chasing your enemies. These powerful spirits radiate brightly with magical energy, creating a beautiful spectacle of death.
Ominous and undeniably badass.
How do you get: Dropped by a Death Rite Bird found south of Gate Town North Site of Grace.
7. Loretta’s Greatbow / Loretta’s Mastery
Sharing sixth place in our ranking is two equally cool spells:
Loretta’s Greatbow and Loretta’s Mastery.
These hexes allow the caster to summon a massive magical bow and fire powerful arcane arrows to devastate unsuspecting targets. Both can be charged to increase range and damage.
While Loretta’s Greatbow fires a single arrow, Loretta’s Mastery fires four at once. The latter also has more range, although the Greatbow offers more FP efficiency.
How do you get: You get the Greatbow early on by defeating the royal knight Loretta in Caria Manor. Loretta’s Mastery is dropped by the more powerful Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree.
6. Hammer of Haima
What’s cooler than summoning a giant bow?
Summon a giant hammer, of course.
The Gavel of Haima is an epic sorcery that materializes an ethereal blue great hammer in your hands so you can bring order to chaos by smashing all rowdy individuals to pieces.
It’s equal parts stylish and brutal.
How do you get: You can find this sorcery on top of a tower in the northeast corner of Liurnia of the Lakes.
5. Founding rain of the stars
Before the world had sorcerers and academies, there were the astrologers who found their wisdom in the stars above the lands in between.
The founding rain of the stars was the first magic bestowed upon them by the celestial bodies above.
This spell is a recreation of the first rhinestone shower over the Lands Between. It summons a small mist over the caster that unleashes a barrage of magical projectiles onto the area below.
How do you get: You can find this late-game spell in a chest in the Heretical Rise at the Mountaintops of the Giants, accessible via an invisible bridge.
4. Meteorite from Astel
Astel is one of the coolest and most powerful bosses in Elden Ring.
Living proof of forces beyond our comprehension, this Eldritch Abomination gazes down at the Lands Between from the endless void of space.
The Meteorite of Astel is a manifestation of the beast’s gravitational power. It’s the same devastating meteor shower that destroyed the Eternal City of Nokron long before the events of the game.
This will make you look just like Obi-Wan Kenobi, who fights Darth Vader in the latest Disney+ series.
How do you get: Meteorite of Astel is your reward for defeating Astel, Stars of Darkness in the Yelough Anix Tunnel in the southwest corner of the Consecrated Snowfield.
3. Rennala’s Full Moon / Ranni’s Dark Moon
Both Carian Queen Rennala and the ultimate Elden Ring, Waifu Ranni, draw their power from the moon—though not necessarily the same.
According to lore, both met their respective moons in their youth, and she has guided their steps ever since.
These two spells allow the caster to incarnate this celestial body and then launch it forward at enemies to lower their magic resistance and deal significant damage. Needless to say, it’s a breathtaking spectacle.
How do you get: The Full Moon is granted by Enia at the Round Table in exchange for the memory of the Full Moon Queen. The Dark Moon is found in Chelona’s Rise after significant progression in Ranni’s quest line.
2. Adula’s moonblade
Similar to the Hammer of Haima, the Carian Greatsword sorcery summons a bright blue blade of light to slice your enemies in half.
But that’s the boring version of this spell.
Adula’s moonblade does the same, except the massive blade is imbued with the icy breath of that mighty dragon. This power is propelled forward in a frosty wave after the blow.
It’s cool both literally and figuratively.
How do you get: Defeat the rhinestone dragon Adula in the Cathedral of Manus Celes, accessible after major progression in Ranni’s quest line.
1. Comet Azure
What spell could be cooler than a massive stream of pure magical power that melts bosses like ants under a magnifying glass?
A wizard’s best friend, Comet Azur is arguably the best way to make Elden Ring easier, aside from summoning a mimic of himself.
It’s basically a Kamehameha or a Hadouken, except it’s shot from your staff instead of your hands.
With it you dominate the battlefield.
How do you get: The silent primeval wizard Azur grants this most powerful spell if you speak with him near the Hermit Village on Mount Gelmir.
