Elden Ring Spells Tier List: Incantations & Sorceries Ranked

In the Elden Ring spells tier list, I have ranked all spells including Incantations & Sorceries so that you can dominate the ranged combat.

Elden Ring is a brand-new addition by Fromsoftware; the game features an amazing open world that players are required to explore to defeat various bosses and collect various items. The bosses in Elden Ring are hard to beat, and players would often need much more than raw melee damage-dealing weapons to beat them.

Therefore, players can look for different spells to make combat more interesting. These spells can aid in combat by their damaging or various support functions. So, I have carefully curated this Elden Ring spells tier list that will rank every spell in the game from best to worst.

Key Highlights
  • Elden Ring divides its massive collection of spells into groups of two. There are a total of 70 Sorcery Spells and 101 Incantations
  • Both types of spells are ranked based on their overall damage or support output and usage convenience. 
  • Elden Ring Incantations that are worthy of your attention are Elden Stars, Placidusax’s Ruin, and Ekzykes’s Decay. 
  • The best Sorceries of the game are Comet Azur, Gavel of Haima, and Rykard’s Rancor.

Law of Regression is an absolute S tier in PvP, but yeah not much use in PvE


Comet Azur is kinda overrated imo. Great for PvE but trash in PvP
