Elden Ring Dragon Spells Guide - How to Get and Use

Elden Ring dragon spells will help you burn through enemies.

Elden Ring is a tough game, especially at the start since you don’t have weapons or any magical options. However, you can get dragon spells pretty early on which will make the Lands Between much more tolerable. Here’s how.

Defeat Flying Dragon Agheel in Limgrave

You start your Elden Ring journey in Limgrave. This is basically your first open-world area and also where you will mostly encounter the first dragon of the game. As you open the door to Limgrave, you will see a huge lake in the immediate northeast. Head there and you will soon see the dragon swoop in, killing a bunch of enemies.

Yes, it is highly, highly suggested to fight the dragon on horseback. What you want to do is aim for the dragon’s left foot from your point of view. Keep running circles and get a couple of hits in each time you get close, then get some distance. Luckily, the dragon is really slow.

As the mighty dragon falls, you will receive a Dragon Heart. Each dragon will drop a Dragon Heart, which is essential for Dragon Spells.

Go West to the Elden Ring Coastal Cave

Now, go back to your first grace site and head west to the beach. Keep your attention to the left and you will see an opening to the Coastal Cave. You can follow along this video guide:

If you don’t have a torch, you can either just run straight ahead or buy a torch from Merchant Kale who is set up at the Church of Ellen just north of your first grace site in Limgrave.

Just before the boss fight, you can use the gold sign on the ground to summon an NPC who’ll fight alongside you. Additionally, you can use Spirit Ashes for more help. The enemies are not tanky, so you will deal enough damage and beat them without much trouble.

Reach the Church of Dragon Communion for Elden Ring Dragon Spells

Keep going ahead and you will see the light at the end of the tunnel. You have reached the Church of Dragon Communion. Head up and enter the broken monument. Near the dead dragon, you will see the altar with fire burning. Interact and select from the three dragon spells.

Dragonfire and Dragonclaw don’t require high stats and are hence suited for early gameplay.

Dragonfire summons a dragon head and shoots fire in a cone area. Great for dealing damage to grouped up enemies, such as rats.

Dragonclaw is slower to cast, but deals high damage and can stagger bosses for a second.
