Some Elden Ring players don’t like the Dragon Communion Incantations, but there are a few that are worth mentioning.
Players don’t really think that much of the Elden Ring Dragon Communion Incantations. Players usually don’t think they’re that great, especially when they think about how hard it was to get them in the first place. After all, it’s not easy to beat a dragon in Elden Ring or any other FromSoftware game.
Even though many of the Incantations players can buy at the Church and Cathedral of Dragon Communion aren’t that great, some of them are pretty strong and deserve to be recognized. After all, there is only one way to use Dragon Hearts, so why not use them to buy something that will help you get around the Lands Between?
Magma Breath can be bought at the Cathedral of Dragon Communion in Caelid for one Dragon Heart after beating the Magma Wyrm boss, which is southwest of the Seethewater Terminus Site of Lost Grace. Since the Incantation needs 14 Faith and 10 Arcane, it’s not hard to get the needed stats.
The point of Magma Breath is to build up lava pools by using Incantation over and over. These pools deal Fire Damage, which can be used against bosses in Elden Ring like the Erdtree Avatar, the Putrid Avatar, and the Ulcerated Tree Spirit. Magma Breath is like Theodorix’s Magma, but it requires lower numbers and does less damage per pool.
The Dragonclaw is a Dragon Communion Incantation that players can get from Limgrave early in the game. Only one Dragon Heart and 17 Faith and 13 Arcane are needed. Now that the Elden Ring has been patched, Dragonclaw only costs 24 FP instead of 32. This means it can be used a lot more.
If a Tarnished uses the Dragonclaw Incantation, he or she will change into a dragon and use its huge claws to attack enemies. It works best against a large group of enemies so that they can be killed as quickly as possible. Another great way to use Dragonclaw is to hold an Elden Ring Seal in each hand and use both of them to cast Incantation. This will cause a long chain of hits to happen.
Even though Glintstone Breath is inside the Cathedral of Dragon Communion in Caelid, it is easy to get from the beginning of the game on because there are many ways to get to the Rotten Land. Caelid is next to Limgrave, so you can also get there by going through Limgrave. Glintstone Breath costs one Dragon Heart and requires 15 Faith and 12 Arcane.
Glintstone Breath does Magic Damage, which can help against bosses like Decaying Ekzykes, Demi-Human Chief, and Hoarah Loux, Warrior, who is the boss of the Elden Ring late in the game. Aside from big enemies, you can use the wide range of the Incantations to get rid of a big group of enemies.
Scarlet Rot damage is one of the most powerful types of damage in the game, along with Bleed and Poison. Even though the Rotten Breath Incantation isn’t very good at causing damage right away, it can help players get through tough fights by infecting their enemies with the Rot. It’s one of the best dragon spells for people who want to stay out of direct battle as long as possible.
Rotten Breath is a good Incantation to add to a player’s arsenal because it helps against tough late-game bosses like Maliketh, the Black Blade and breaks up groups of enemies. Also, its Faith requirement is only 15. So even builds that don’t focus on that stat will be able to use it well.
This Dragon Communion spell also makes a dragon’s head appear on top of the player. However, this dragon’s head quickly bites any enemy that gets in its way. This low-cost spell is especially useful in the early to middle parts of the game. It only costs one Dragon Heart. But it costs a lot more Faith than the Rotten Breath spell and isn’t the best choice for players who don’t want to put a lot of skill points into that trait.
But Faith-based builds in Elden Ring should have a great time with Dragonmaw. Because it works well with melee strikes. This means that skilled Tarnished can unleash a dangerous flurry of attacks that end with this quick sequence of dragon bites. This power scales with Faith, and you need at least 26 Faith points and 16 Arcane to be able to equip it.
Dragonice is a low-cost Dragon Communion Incantation that can be used by builds that don’t focus on magic to stop enemies and deal elemental damage to get the upper hand in a fight.
When the Dragonice Incantation is cast, the caster’s head changes into that of a dragon. And their breath freezes everything in their path. Dragonice is the best choice for melee-focused builds that want to try out some magic. It is much more useful against large groups of mob enemies than against big bosses.
Smarag’s Glintstone Breath
Smarag’s Glintstone Breath is a great choice for players who want strong Incantations that are also beautiful to look at. It lifts the player a few feet off the ground and does a lot of damage to foes with magic.
Unlike Dragonice or Rotten Breath, this Elden Ring Incantation takes a bit more Faith (23 points) to use. However, it is well worth the skill point investment because it is so good at draining the health bars of bosses that aren’t resistant to magic. The Glintstone Breath of Smarag is also useful when fighting big or flying mobs.
Magma Incantations are better than straight fire damage. Because they do damage over a long period of time. Theodorix’s Magma is an incantation that can be bought for two Dragon Hearts after beating the Great Wyrm Theodorix. It slows down enemies so they can’t get close enough to deal melee damage.
This Incantation is very useful for any STR/FTH build. Which is one of the most common Elden Ring builds. It can be used in a number of ways. But it works best against bosses and mobs that are weak to fire. The fact that the deadly magma comes out of the top is an added bonus.
Greyoll’s Roar is one of the easier dragon-specific incantations to get because Greyoll, the Elden Dragon who lives in Caelid’s Dragonbarrow, does not directly attack the player. Greyoll instead counts on the five smaller dragons that have gathered around him to attack the Tarnished. But with the help of Torrent and some physical skill, it’s easy to stop them. So the player can focus on hitting Greyoll’s tail until his health bar is at zero.
Greyoll’s Roar costs three Dragon Hearts at the Altar of Dragon Communion. But it’s well worth it, especially for players with Faith builds. It sends out a strong AoE attack that not only hurts enemies directl. But also weakens their attacks and makes them easier for the player to hit for 60 seconds. To wear Greyoll’s Roar, you need to have 28 Faith and 17 Arcane.
Like other strong Dragon Incantations in Elden Ring, Agheel’s Flame can only be used after a certain dragon has been defeated. In this case, the Dragon Agheel in Elden Ring is the enemy that needs to be killed. Even though he is still a tough boss, he is not as hard as some of the other dragons in Snake Game. He can be found in Limgrave.
If your Faith level is high enough, this Incantation could be one of the most powerful fire spells in the game. It has a long range and shoots flames from above. Which makes it more effective against enemies with shields and high poise.
Dragonfire is a lot like Agheel’s Flame in that it is also a Fire Incantation that turns the person using it into a dragon. But unlike Agheel’s Flame, this one doesn’t lift the player off the ground and has a slightly lower range.
Even though it’s not as strong as Agheel’s Flame, Dragonfire might be the better Dragon Communion Incantation. This is because it costs much less Faith to use (15 instead of 23 for Agheel’s Flame) and only one Dragon Heart to buy. It works well with all kinds of builds. Players who don’t focus on Faith might have trouble using it well against bosses. But it’s easy to use against mob enemies.
Elden Ring Dragon Communion lets you do some pretty beautiful moves. But Borealis’s Mist may be the most beautiful “breath” spell. It sends out a mist of ice at the enemies, causing them to take a lot of Frostbite damage. It’s a better version of the Dragonice move, but it costs 23 points more of Faith to equip.
Players have to go all the way to the Mountaintops of the Giants and beat Borealis, the Freezing Fog, in order to get Borealis’s Mist. You can find him south of the Site of Grace at Freezing Lake. He is a tough opponent, but those who have fought and won against a few other named dragons should have a good idea of how to fight him. His basic moves are the same as those of Decaying Ekzykes and Flying Dragon Agheel. The Tarnished can buy Borealis’s Mist at an Altar of Dragon Communion for two Dragon Hearts after killing Borealis.
This Incantation is another Scarlet Rot spell that you can get after beating Decaying Ekzykes. It’s a lot stronger than Rotten Breath, which is a pretty powerful spell on its own.
This is because, like most other Incantations named after specific creatures. Ekzykes’ Decay raises the player a few feet off the ground, making the area it affects bigger. The bigger, thicker cloud of Scarlet Rot infects foes much faster. Causing them to lose more HP than any other Rot-based spell. As for the requirements, players need to have 23 Faith and 15 Arcane.
The Placidusax’s Ruin is the only Elden Ring Dragon Cult Incantation that can’t be found in the Church or Cathedral of Dragon Communion. It is a very strong late-game spell that lets players spew Golden Breath from above. Instead, players can get it by giving it to Enia at the Roundtable Hold in exchange for the Remembrance of the Dragonlord.
This monster of a spell needs 36 Faith and is the only one in this category that has 3600 control and can be aimed while being cast. It is also the only one that has 3600 control and can be aimed during the cast. Placidusax’s Ruin is one of those powerful Elden Ring spells that can end most fights in seconds. Whether it’s by destroying hordes of small enemies or taking away chunks of bosses’ health bars at once.
Elden Ring can be played on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.
