Elden Ring Best Mage Talismans

Use These Talismans For Your Elden Ring Mage Build

Elden Ring comes with more than 100 talismans, but only a few of them are suited for a Mage build. After spending more than 160 hours playing as a Mage, I’ve compiled a list of what I’ve found to be the 11 essential talismans for Mages.

My list, with information on what each talisman does and where you can find them, are below.

1. Stargazer Heirloom

The Stargazer Heirloom talisman raises Intelligence by five points, boosting your sorcery strength and allowing you to access new staves or spells. You can use it through to late game once you’ve levelled up your Intelligence to a decent level – I suggest 70 for some of the stronger spells and staves!

The talisman can be found on a body at the top of the Divine Tower of Liurnia. You must progress Ranni’s questline to acquire the Carian Inverted Statue and unlock the area.

2. Radagon Icon

The Radagon Icon is an Elden Ring legendary talisman that shortens spell casting time. It’s one of my preferred Mage talismans. It’s handy if you like to use the game’s stronger but slow-casting spells.

It can be found inside a chest on the second floor of the Debate Parlour, accessed by leaving the room, taking a right, jumping over the fence, climbing the ladder, and jumping through a broken window towards the chest.

3. Graven-School Talisman

The Graven-School talisman raises the damage of your sorceries by 4%, allowing you to deal a lot more damage. You can combine it with the Lusat’s Glintstone Staff that enchances the power of all sorceries to hit really hard.

The talisman can be found in Raya Lucaria Academy outside the Red Wolf of Radagon boss room. You’ll need to hit an empty bookshelf before going down the stairs to reveal an illusionary wall. After following the path, climbing a ladder, and jumping over a railing into a hole, the talisman can be found in the room with crystals and Living Jar enemies.

4. Marika’s Soreseal

Marika’s Soreseal raises your Mind, Intelligence, Faith and Arcane stats by five points but increases the damage you take by 15%. If you’re looking for a boost to some main stats, you’ll likely find this helpful, permitting you’ve upped your Vigor or can wear advanced armour to beat out the increased damage.

It can be found on an altar in a room behind a fog wall that requires a Stonesword Key in Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree.

5. Cerulean Amber Medallion

The Cerulean Amber Medallion raises your maximum FP, which is handy at the beginning of the game if you’re looking to level up stats over your FP like Vigor, Intelligence, and Dexterity or Strength, depending on your weapon.

There are three versions of the talisman; the ordinary version that boosts FP by 7%, and the +1 and +2 variations that boost FP by 9% and 11%, respectively.

The Cerulean Amber Medallion talismans can be found:

  • Ordinary: Found in the Lakeside Crystal Cave after defeating Bloodhound Knight in Liurnia of the Lakes.
  • +1: Found in Castle Sol in the Mountaintops of the Giants. Located on a corpse hanging from a wooden ledge in the southern part of the castle.
  • +2: Found in the Lunar Estate Ruins on the Moonlight Altar plateau in southern Liurnia of the Lakes. The talisman is behind a fog gate requiring one Stonesword Key. You must progress Ranni’s questline to reach the plateau.

6. Primal Glintstone Blade

The Primal Glinstone Blade reduces the FP consumption of sorceries by 25% but reduces your maximum health by 15%. Handy if you like using high FP-consuming spells or if you want to cancel out the caveat of the Azur’s Glintstone (Reduces spell casting time) and Lusat’s Glintstone (Increases your magic damage) staves, which consume more FP.

The talisman can be found in a chest in an underground area in the centre of the Stargazer’s Ruins in the Mountaintops of the Giants.

8. Viridian Amber Medallion

The Viridian Amber Medallion raises your maximum stamina, useful for casting more spells. There are three variations of the talisman that increases your stamina by 11%, 13%, and 15%.

The talismans can be found as follows:

  • Ordinary: Found in the Tombsward Cave in Weeping Peninsula after defeating the dungeon’s boss, Miranda the Blighted Bloom.
  • +1: Found in Atlus Plateau in the capital outskirts. You’ll need to defeat a copy of Margit.
  • +2: Found in Miquella’s Haligtree in the Town Plaza in a chest guarded by zombies.

8. Green Turtle Talisman

The Green Turtle talisman raises stamina recovery speed, allowing you to recover stamina faster to cast sorceries. Items like Picked Turtle Neck – they can be found, bought and crafted – have the same effect, so you might want to use that over this talisman unless you’re super low on stamina.

If you can’t be bothered with crafting or don’t want to spend Runes, you can find the Green Turtle Talisman in an underground area in Summonwater Village in northern Limgrave.

9. Ancestral Spirit’s Horn

The Ancestral Spirit’s Horn restores 3 FP whenever an enemy is killed. A very handy talisman if you want to keep your FP up, since you are going to be defeating a lot of enemies as you explore. The talisman can be purchased for 3,000 Runes by using the Remembrance of the Regal Ancestor’s power with Enia at the Roundtable Hold.

10. Moon Of Nokstella

The Moon Of Nokstella is a legendary talisman that increases your spell memory slots by two. This is great if you haven’t found many Memory Stones and like to equip many or high slot-consuming sorceries, although I’d drop it towards the middle to late game, as you should have found plenty of Memory Stones for extra slots by then.

It can be found in a chest under the massive throne in Nokstella, Eternal City.

11. Cerulean Seed Talisman

The Cerulean Seed talisman boosts FP regeneration from the Flask Of Cerulean Tears, but only if you’re using a corresponding seed for the flask. It can be found on a body in the Carian Study Hall at Liurnia of the Lakes. You must progress Ranni’s questline to acquire the Carian Inverted Statue and unlock the area.

Those are the best talismans for Mages in Elden Ring. Remember to constantly analyse the talismans you have and swap them out regularly to boost your build and depending on the situation.
