Most Useful Elden Ring Incantations

Few universal Elden Ring incantations are the most famous and considered top-notch. So, let’s break them down and review each in detail below.


 1. Flame, Grant Me Strength

If you are running a physical build, this is the best incantation for you to use in Elden Ring. As it is clear from the name of the spell, it raises your physical and fire affinity attack power. Flame, Grant Me Strength is excellent for any pyromancy and physical damage.

Flame Grant Me Strength

It is a specific incantation for a reason, but note that particular weapons, such as the coded sword, are not impacted. It’s a pure faith weapon, which is not a physical weapon. When using this incantation, you cannot increase its physical damage. However, most weapons in the game have physical damage, which is why they will improve.

Let’s clear the air with an example. Suppose you have 102 in AR, and it is a plus-zero weapon. Using the incantation, Flame, Grant Me Strength, will take you from 102 to 122! This 20% increase is quite incredible. Golden Vow helps increase attack and defense for allies and yourself but cannot beat flame, grant me strength because it doesn’t give you more physical damage.

 2. Lighting Strike 

Now, this is an incantation that is not only great for PvE but also for PvP. With 21 FP and 28 Faith lightning strikes, you can quickly spread out some lighting. It provides significant damage, and you can spam this out in both PvE and PvP.

It will clear your way within seconds because it spreads out impressively!

So, clean your way in a reasonable range using a lighting strike, and voila! However, like any incantation, you must be careful when spreading it. Once your foes are in the range you have created, it’s deadly for them!

The black blade is the most potent of Elden Ring Incantations in PvE, but you can also use it in PVP if you want. It comes from the “Malacath” boss fight or the boss soul. You will get the black blade incantation instead of a weapon when you trade. Now, this is rare and difficult to get your hands on one because it requires 46 faith.
