All dragon incantation and heart locations in Elden Ring

Steven Rondina • July 1, 2022 8:37 pm

Of all the dragons in Elden Ring, the most important ones to locate are the ones that drop Dragon Hearts and teach Dragon Communion incantations.

Elden Ring revisits a concept from Dark Souls 3 of people transforming into dragons. There are two sub-categories of incantation related to this including Aspects of the Crucible and Dragon Communion. Aspects of the Crucible are dropped after killing Crucible Knights around the Lands Between, but there’s an extra step when it comes to getting Dragon Communion incantations.

To get Dragon Communion incantations, players need to track down and kill a number of dragons across each area of Elden Ring. This unlocks the ability to purchase these incantations from one of two places. Here’s the location of every Dragon Communion target, and how to collect all the Dragon Hearts in Elden Ring.

All Dragon Heart locations in Elden Ring

The key to getting all Dragon Communion incantations in Elden Ring is to get every Dragon Heart in the game. Many of the game’s dragon enemies will offer one or more upon death and some of these dragons will unlock new spells to purchase.

Players will have to do a lot of globetrotting in order to get them all, but it’s worth the effort. Dragon Communion incantations are very powerful and can be folded into almost any build that has high faith.

What do you do with Dragon Hearts in Elden Ring?

In Elden Ring, Dragon Hearts are a currency used to buy incantations.

Players can use Dragon Hearts to purchase incantations from one of two shops. The first one players have access to is the Church of Dragon Communion on an island near Limgrave, which is accessed via the Coastal Cave. Later on in the game, players can find the Cathedral of Dragon Communion along the southern side of Caelid.

The church only has a handful of spells that are generic across all dragons. Players can find more incantations in Caelid, including ones used by some boss dragons. That said, not every dragon boss is a part of this.

All Dragon Communion incantations in Elden Ring and where to get them

Many Dragons in Elden Ring can unlock new Dragon Communion incantations, but that’s not the case with all of them. Some dragons will just drop a Dragon Heart and some Dragon Communion incantations do not require the player to kill any dragons. Here is the full list of Dragon Communion incantations, how to unlock them, and how many Dragon Hearts they cost.

Though the Church of Dragon Communion seems like an important place, not all incantations can be purchased there. The go-to for Dragon Communion incantations will be the cathedral in Caelid.
