Lords of the Fallen: 7 Best Remembrance Spells

With my 30+ hours Lords of the Fallen experience, I give you my recommended remembrance spells list.

There are 12 remembrance bosses in Lords of the Fallen, and almost every boss remembrance features a spell. As I have tried every remembrance spell in Lords of the Fallen, I was able to figure out the seven best ones. So, not all the spells are going to be worth your time, as farming the Umbral Scouring is pretty hectic.

Key Takeaways
  • There are 15 Remembrance spells in Lords of the Fallen.
  • Among the 15, the best ones are ranked in accordance with their worth and my experience.
  • I think the best remembrance spell in Lords of the Fallen is Latimer’s Javelin.
  • The damage of Latimer’s Javelin is pretty massive, and it can be obtained pretty early.
  • I couldn’t find any disadvantage to Latimer’s Javelin, so in my opinion, it is perfect.
  • Players can also use Blessed Reflection and Grieving Gaze based on their preferences.

1- Latimer’s Javelin

The Best Spell For All Game Areas.

In Lords of the Fallen, the Latimer’s Javelin can be obtained pretty early after defeating the Hushed Saint. Just use its remembrance and get the spell. Latimer’s Javelin is an Umbral Spell and arguably the best remembrance spell in Lords of the Fallen. Also, I was shocked by how good it was, and it didn’t take a long duration to cast.

  • Doesn’t take a long time to cast.
  • Mana cost isn’t that high.
  • Deals a great amount of damage.
  • Requires 18 points in both Radiance and Inferno.

2- Blessed Reflection

The Best Radiance Spell In-Game.

It is pretty amazing how you can find the second-best remembrance spell in Lords of the Fallen just after defeating the first boss. The most effective way to use Blessed Reflection, in my opinion, is to use it from mid-range. However, I will not recommend spamming, as it should be used only when you are within a certain range of the enemy.

  • Mana cost is 99, and it requires 30 Radiance.

3- Grieving Gaze

The Best Remembrance Spell For Poise Break.

You can find Grieving Gaze after defeating the Hollow Crow, which wouldn’t be that difficult. However, the boss will be annoying, so make sure to go there when you are fully prepared. Grieving Gaze is another Umbral Spell in the top 3 of the list due to its massive damage.

Not only does it have great damage, but it also deals massive poise damage, making it the best Remembrance spell for poise break. Just 2 to 4 hits from Grieving Gaze were enough to poise break the Ruiner in Lords of the Fallen.

  • Can easily break the poise of elite enemies.
  • The damage output is great.
  • The mana cost to cast it isn’t that high. 
  • It requires 25 Radiance and Inferno to be cast.

4- Radiant Guardian

The Best Remembrance Spell To Increase Overall DPS.

If you don’t want just to deal damage with spells but want to do some melee damage, too, then Radiant Guardian is a great choice. Just cast the Radiant Guardian and fight the enemy as you would usually. The overall DPS will increase tremendously thanks to the Radiant Guardian, making it the best remembrance spell to increase the DPS.

The spell is great, and it doesn’t take much time to be cast. So, I would recommend you to get it as it deals some good damage too.

  • It fights alongside you.
  • The Mana Cost is pretty low.
  • The damage it does is also great.
  • Can only be used in a radiance build, as it requires 30 points in Radiane.

5- Severing Blades

The Best Spell To Cast In Melee Combat.

You can get the Severing Blades by defeating Lightreaper and getting its remembrance. Now, getting the spell totally depends on when you can defeat the boss. I defeated Lightreaper when it appeared after my encounter with The Hollow Crow. Also, that was the third and last time it appeared just to mock me.

Moreover, I consider it the best spell to cast in melee combat as it deals wither damage and takes a small amount of time to cast.

  • It does great damage, and you can cast it pretty quickly. 
  • It also deals Wither damage.
  • The Mana Cost is pretty low.
  • Can only be used in an Inferno build, as it requires 35 points in Radiane.

6- Flame Funnel

The Best Spell For Group Of Enemies.

I didn’t really like the final boss in Lords of the Fallen, as it is a gimmick boss, and it was really disappointing. Also, the boss fight isn’t that great, either. However, that might be useful in the NG+ run, as the Flame Funnel can be used on low-level enemies. Using it on a single enemy is pointless, so make sure to use it on a few enemies. Also, I really did not like the spell, so I wouldn’t recommend using it.

  • It is good for grouping up enemies.
  • Also, it has 0 mana cost. 
  • The damage isn’t good.
  • Requires 22 Inferno.

7- Flesh Tide – Great Long-Range Spell

The Best Long-Range Spell.

Flesh-Tide

Obtain Flesh Tide early in Elden Ring from the Remembrance of the Congregator of Flesh. While it inflicts Wither damage, it’s not a recommended remembrance spell, especially if you dislike ranged spells with a potential to miss. However, If the playstyle aligns with your preferences, you can experiment with it, but it might not be the optimal choice for everyone.

  • The Mana Cost is pretty low.
  • Requires 22 Radiance and Inferno.
  • Also, the damage isn’t high enough.

Alternative Picks

Here are some additional Remembrance Spells in Lords of the Fallen that I didn’t cover in the guide but are worth noting:

  • Magma Surge: A solid pick with unmatched AoE damage, but it has a limited range compared to the other spells I’ve selected above.
  • Martyrdom: An excellent choice, as it continuously inflicts wither damage before exploding in a decent-sized area, dealing significant damage to any nearby enemies.
  • Barrage of Echoes: While it is a reasonable option, its effectiveness can be hampered in confined environments due to the dense projectile spread.
  • Infernal Erruption: It has a powerful blast with devastating damage, yet comes with a high mana cost, self-inflicted pain, and the risk of immobility.

Which Remebrance Spell Is The Best – My Opinion

In my opinion, Latimer’s Javelin is the best Remembrance Spell in Lords of the Fallen.

The Latimer’s Javelin has great DPS and can be obtained early in-game. Moreover, it is the ideal option for those who like to defeat the opponent from a certain range. Furthermore, you can also use the Blessed Reflection and Grieving Gaze, as both deal a great amount of damage.
