Elden Ring DLC Spells/Incantations That Make ‘Zero’ Sense

When playing Elden King’s latest DLC, “Shadow of the Erdtree,” you’ll find 28 new incantations and 14  new sorceries.

Honestly speaking, there are some spells and incantations that don’t quite fit.

From spells that make you weaker instead of stronger to others that hardly ever come in handy, these additions had us puzzled.

Questioning, if there’s more to these spells or if they’re just not that useful.

28 Elden Ring Incantations

There are 28 Incantations in the Elden Ring DLC. Here’s a list of them with their location –

Elden Ring DLC Spells/Incantations That Makes No Sense

Getting into the new Elden Ring DLC, I’ve got to say that some of the new spells and incantations leave me puzzled. There are a few that just don’t add up with what we’re used to in the game.

Midras’ Flame of Frenzy

By the name, you’d think it’d give you an edge in battle, but instead, it backfires, making you more vulnerable to frenzy than the enemies you’re supposed to be fighting. It’s sort of like setting yourself up for failure before even starting the fight.

Cherishing Fingers

Cherishing Fingers has such a slow cast time that you feel it’s ages before it comes to fruition. And don’t get me started on Mantle of Thorns; whereas you’d hope it might at least cause bleed on hit, it ends up being a disappointing spell you’d likely just scroll past in your incantation list.

Vortex of Putrescence

Let’s just say you would only use it under such specific circumstances that it’s virtually collecting dust in your grimoire. If only it had broader applications, it might not feel like such a wasted opportunity.

Spells like Electrocharge and Rain of Fire

You’d think Electrocharge and Rain of Fire would at least be powerful, but instead, the damage output feels like you’re tickling your foes, leaving you to wonder if the casting was for nothing at all. I can’t help but wonder why FromSoftware would add spells that have such little impact.

Roar of Rugalea

The roar of Rugalea is another spell that’s as confusing as it is ambiguous. Without a clear indication of its purpose or proper usage, it’s almost like a puzzle within the larger puzzle of this Elden Ring DLC.

When you stack these new spells up against the older ones, or even some of the weapon arts we rely on, something is missing. New spells should excite us, offer new strategies, or improve our existing tactics, but these just aren’t hitting the mark.

But hey, who knows?

Maybe we’re missing something, or perhaps there’s a hidden trick to make these spells/incantations work. Or maybe we’ll get an update that buffs them up.
