Elden Ring Gameplay Trailer MagicSource: Bandai Namco

Elden Ring, like many FromSoftware games before it, includes a fairly comprehensive magic system. Some of the classes in Elden Ring start off able to use magic and any character can eventually take part in flinging spells, with the right investments. In general, Elden Ring appears to offer more choice than any of FromSoftware's previous titles, meaning it could be one of the best Xbox RPGs available. Here's what you need to know about magic in Elden Ring, including a complete list of Sorceries and Incantations so far.

Elden Ring magic types

Magic in Elden Ring appears to be divided into two parts: Sorceries and Incantations. Sorceries require the Intelligence stat to use, while Incantations require the Faith stat. Both spells and miracles use FP, which is increased by raising your character's Intelligence stat when leveling up. FP can be restored by drinking from your character's Flasks of Cerulean Tears.

Sorceries require a Staff to cast, while Incantations require a Sacred Seal. Functionally, Sorceries and Incantations seem to be very similar to Sorceries and Miracles from Demon's Souls and the Dark Souls trilogy of games.
