The Shadow of the Erdtree DLC brings exciting new spells to Elden Ring, and the Rings of Spectral Light sorcery is the one worth considering. Casting this spell causes dim, fierce spectral rings to swipe out in a spiral pattern that inflicts magic damage and stacks frost buildup on enemies. To get your hands on this powerful sorcery, you’ll need to explore the new DLC and visit a specific location in the Land of Shadow. This guide will show you how to get the Rings of Spectral Light in the Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree.

Where to Find the Rings of Spectral Light in the Shadow of the Erdtree

Rings of Spectral Light Spell Charo's Hidden Grave Map Location in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree.

  • From the Charo’s Hidden Grave Site of Grace, go to Charo’s Hidden Grave. This is a new area introduced in the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. It’s crucial to find this hidden grave to progress further.
  • In Grave, you will have to fight some tough bird enemies. Defeating them is the only way to get past this to access the area where the sorcery is located. From there, walk with the river towards a bit southeast.
  • Once you’ve crossed the river, you should see a hill ahead towards the left, this is your next destination.
  • Follow the path leading up the hill. It’s a bit of a climb, but it’s straightforward.
  • At the top, you’ll find a small stone platform with a big bird statue in the center and an altar close to it.
  • If you go either toward the right or left of this statue, you will encounter two aggressive birds one on each side. They’ll attack if you get too close to these sides so you don’t need to take extra trouble.

In front of the statue below on the altar, you’ll find the Rings of Spectral Light sorcery. Simply pick it up to add it to your collection.

How to Use Rings of Spectral Light Sorcery

Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree - Rings of Spectral Light Sorcery Stats

Here’s how to effectively use this powerful sorcery:


  • Intelligence 24
  • Faith 18
  • 12 FP to cast

Thus make sure to have spent some points in both Intelligence and Faith so you are able to cast this magic spell. Most of the damage boosts with Intelligence.

The Rings of Spectral Light, just like a lot of the sorceries in Elden Ring, can be charged to make it more powerful. Pressing the cast button and holding it in for a few seconds charges up, enabling you to fire a stronger version instead. The fully powered spell will instead inflict heavy magic damage and accumulate significantly more frost building up on the target. It works great for rushing a tougher enemy that you want to be frosted quickly.

One key benefit of the spell is that it has a huge range; the projectiles travel farther than other generic sorceries, such as Comet. This gives you free range to take down enemies at a much safer distance. However, they spawn from above the caster in a circle around them. This leads to them running into walls within tight corridors and failing to deal damage. Rings of Spectral Light is most effective in large open areas.

In short, Rings of Spectral Light in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree is a flexible and powerful sorcery. It has a long range, is relatively cheap in terms of FP and you can apply frost, which makes it an exciting tool for mages. As long as you meet the Intelligence and Faith requirements, you’ll be playing with spectral light before you know it.
