Just like any other soulslike out there, Lords of the Fallen also requires you to force your way out of difficult situations using all the tools and techniques at your disposal. One such tool is the spells you can pick up as you explore the world and make them your own. If you are wondering about the game’s most powerful spell, join us as we unveil the best spells in Lords of the Fallen.

10 Poison Weapon

  • Price:
    1,650 Vigor

  • Stat Requirement:
    8 Radiance and 8 Inferno

  • Mana Cost:
    60

If you are looking for a spell to boost your weapon with poison, Poison Weapon is definitely a spell you should have on you. Since the spell has a negligible stat requirement, you can use this spell regardless of whether you are running an Umbral spell build or not. To make the most out of this spell, pair it with any weapon with a fast move set, and watch how quickly your target gets inflicted with the poisoned status.

While this spell is great against all sorts of enemy encounters, it is particularly powerful against bosses vulnerable to poison, like the Lightreaper or Reinhold the Immured. To get your hands on this spell, simply purchase it from Molhu at the Skyrest Bridge.

9 Radiant Weapon

  • Price:
    1,000 Vigor

  • Stat Requirement:
    18 Radiance

  • Mana Cost:
    60

Similar to Poison Weapon, Radiant Weapon is a spell that buffs your weapon with Radiance (Holy) damage. While this buff only lasts for 90 seconds, it is more than enough time to deal a significant amount of damage to any enemy that stands in your way. It is also a great spell to pick up against a boss that is weak to Radiance damage.

To get this spell, head to Skyrest Bridge and purchase it from Exacter Dunmire. That said, with the 18 Radiance stat requirement, you’ll have to run a Radiance stat build to be able to use this spell.

8 Severing Blades

  • Price:
    10 Umbral Scouring

  • Stat Requirement:
    35 Inferno

  • Mana Cost:
    46

Used by the Lightreaper, Severing Blades can be a menacing spell if you can’t get the dodge timing. However, you’ll be pleased to know that you can add this spell to your arsenal if you manage to defeat the Lightreaper. When you use this spell, it throws a pair of fiery projectiles that damage any enemy in the path.

Lords Of The Fallen: Best Umbral Build

How about experimenting with an Umbral build?

On top of its quick cast time, the spell is an excellent tool for dishing out both Fire and Wither damage. To acquire this spell, simply exchange the Remembrance of the Lightreaper with Molhu at the Skyrest Bridge.

7 Grieving Gaze

  • Price:
    10 Umbral Scouring

  • State Requirement:
    25 Radiance and 25 Inferno

  • Mana Cost:
    80

If you are looking for a spell that is great at clearing large hordes of enemies, you should consider picking up Grieving Gaze, especially when you are running a hybrid build of Radiance and Inferno. While the spell boasts an impressive range and damage, Grieving Graze does struggle with a slow cast time.

It is worth noting that the spell does not deal direct damage, unlike most Umbral spells that mainly deal Wither damage, making it an excellent choice against all kinds of enemies. To get this spell, you’ll need to acquire the Remembrance of the Hollow Crow and exchange it for the Grieving Gaze spell from Molhu at the Skyrest Bridge.

6 Barrage of Echoes

  • Price:
    10 Umbral Scouring

  • Stat Requirement:
    18 Radiance and 18 Inferno

  • Mana Cost:
    39

Barrage of Echoes can be regarded as one of the best Umbral spells due to the amount of damage it is capable of. Upon casting the spell, your character launches a dozen bubbles upon your target that detonate upon impact and can deal an impressive amount of damage.

The best part of the spell is its ultra-low mana cost, allowing you to spam this spell on your targets from a safe distance. To acquire this spell, you have to exchange the Remembrance of the Unbroken Promise with Molhu at the Skyrest Bridge.

5 Blessed Reflection

Blessed Reflection stands out as the signature spell wielded by Pieta, She of Blessed Renewal boss, showcased when she summons spectral minions to fight you. Well, you’ll be pleased to know that you have the opportunity to not only obtain this spell but also command the very same spectres that once stood against you.

Once summoned, this spectre will aid you in both ranged and melee combat and deal some serious amounts of damage before they go out. That said, while you can get your hands on this spell very early on in the game, it does have a steep stat requirement that you’ll only be able to meet much later on in the game. The spell also requires a huge amount of mana to cast. To get this spell, defeat Pieta and trade her Remembrance with Molhu at the Skyrest Bridge.

4 Latimer’s Javelin

  • Price:
    10 Umbral Scouring

  • Stat Requirement:
    18 Radiance and 18 Inferno

  • Mana Cost:
    52

Latimer’s Javelin is easily one of the best single-target damage spells you can pick up in the game. Using this spell causes you to hurl an exploding javelin at your target that explodes on impact and can even damage enemies within the blast radius. The spell’s appeal also lies in its quick cast time, long range, and high damage – all achieved at a low mana cost.

Lords Of The Fallen: Best Inferno Build

For those who enjoy being pyromancers, this build is for you.

This spell is the signature spell used by the Hushed Saint boss, and you get to acquire it for yourself after defeating him. Once you defeat the Hushed Saint and acquire its Remembrance, simply head to Molhu at Skyrest Bridge to claim the spell as your own.

3 Seismic Slam

  • Price:
    3,500 Vigor

  • Stat Requirement:
    25 Inferno

  • Mana Cost:
    66

Seismic Slam is one of the best spells you can pick up if you are running an Inferno-centered build. On top of having an impressive range, the spell can do a ridiculous amount of damage in an AOE, acting as a great crowd-control option when surrounded.

While the spell involves you slamming a massive hammer onto the ground, Seismic Slam has a deceptively quick cast time and allows you to keep inflicting the burn build-up on your targets. To get this spell, simply purchase it from the Tortured Prisoner in exchange for the Giant Eyeball.

2 Orius’ Judgement

  • Price:
    1,650 Vigor

  • Stat Requirement:
    35 Radiance

  • Mana Cost:
    120

Orius’ Judgement is a Radiance spell that, when used, rains down lighting onto its targets. It is a great spell to have in your arsenal whether you are up against a mob of enemies or a difficult boss. On top of dealing high amounts of damage, the spell has a small cast time that allows you to cast the spell more than one time when your target is vulnerable.

That said, the usage of Orius’ Judgement comes at a price – it uses high amounts of mana and has a high Radiance stat requirement. To get this spell, simply purchase it from Stomund, Captain of the Fidel.

1 Cataclysm

  • Price:
    8,000 Vigor

  • Stat Requirement:
    30 Inferno

  • Mana Cost:
    99

Cataclysm is one of the best Inferno spells in Lords of the Fallen, and for good reason. The spell involves summoning a fiery meteor shower onto your enemies, inflicting massive amounts of damage upon any poor soul caught in it.

That said, using this mighty spell definitely consumes a decent chunk of your mana. The spell also has a small cast range that you need to be careful about if you don’t want to miss. Get your hands on this spell by purchasing it from the Tortured Prisoner outside the Spurned Progeny.
