Prayer Book Function

Prayer Books in Elden Ring serve a unique and vital purpose: they unlock incantations for sale, allowing players to expand their arsenal of magical abilities. Incantations are the best spells that can heal, deal damage, buff, or debuff, offering players a wealth of strategic options in combat. With a total of eight Prayer books scattered across the Lands Between, each of them unlocks two or three new incantations for purchase.

  • To access these spells, players must first give their Prayerbooks to the right NPC.
  • Two key characters in the game can help you unlock the power of Prayerbooks:
    1. Brother Corhyn
    2. Miriel, Pastor of Vows.

  3. Look for a patrolling knight on the main road.

Here’s the path that I would recommend to find the Five Monks Prayerbook:

  1. Begin at the Liurnia of the Lakes: Scenic Isle Site of Grace.
  2. Head South-Southwest from the Site of Grace towards the mainland.
  3. Once you are out of the swamp, search for a small village with red drapery on the fences.
  4. Defeat the fire clan residing in the village. Enter the village after defeating the fire clan.
  5. Locate a body in the middle of the area. The Fire Monks’ Prayerbook can be found on this body.

Giants’ Prayerbook

Giant’s Prayerbook

To find the Giants’ Prayer book in Elden Ring, here’s the route I recommend to easily getting it:

  1. Begin at Mountaintop of the Giants: Whiteridge Road.
  2. Proceed to the Guardians’ Garrison. Inside, climb the ladder to the upper level.
  3. Locate the first NPC Phantom on the upper level. Find a broken portion of the western wall behind the NPC Phantom.
  4. Use the broken wall to jump onto the scaffolding below.
  5. Follow the scaffolding around to the upper landing. Defeat the NPC Phantom ‘Chief Guardian Arghanthy’.
  6. Enter the tower that Chief Guardian Arghanthy was protecting.
  7. Climb up the ladder inside the tower. At the top landing, find the Giant’s Prayerbook inside a chest.

  2. Exit the door to the outside area with birds. Perform a running jump onto the roof across from the door.
  3. On the left side of the roof, drop down to the area without stairs.
  4. Drop down again to land near steps going down. Descend the steps to encounter rats and a white fog wall.
  5. Use a Stonesword Key to pass through the fog wall.
  6. Inside, there will be two chests. The Godskin Prayer book is located in one chest, while the Godslayer’s Seal is in the other.

Final Remarks

This brings me to the end of the Elden Ring prayer book locations guide. While incantations are powerful, sorcery is equally good in the game. However, most players debate over Incantation Vs Sorcery Spells in Elden Ring. You can easily make a quality build, such as the best mage build, astrologer build, intelligence build & much more.
