In Elden Ring, eight stats can be improved with Runes to enhance health, defense, damage, and other stats. Please refer to our write-up if you want to know what Faith does in Elden Ring.
What ıs faith in Elden Ring?
Faith is used to cast Incantations in Elden Ring. Incantations are a type of magic that can be used to heal yourself, do damage, change the properties of objects, remove status effects, and more. Faith is needed to use Sacred Seals, which are weapons that are used to cast incantations. Faith is also needed for some Death and Thorn Sorceries.

At Sites of Grace in the Lands Between, you can use Runes to level up your Faith. If you improve your Faith, you’ll be able to use new weapons and Incantations with more power. Also, if you find a non-Faith weapon you like to use in the game and want to increase its overall damage, you can add Faith scaling to it by infusing it with Faith-based Ashes of War with Sanctified and Red-Hot Whetblades.
Lastly, it’s important to note that casting Incantations uses both FP and Stamina, so you’ll need to level up Mind and Endurance in addition to Vigor to be able to cast more during battles (Your health).

Is there anything that makes faith stronger?
Yes, there is. If you’re running low on Faith levels and need a little boost to use a certain weapon or Incantation, you can equip a few things that will give you a few more Faith levels. But it’s important to remember that some of these items can take away levels from other stats, lower your defense, or give you other problems. Some of the things that help Faith are:
- Two Fingers Heirloom Talisman: Increases Faith by five
- Marika’s Soreseal Talisman: Increases Faith, Mind, Intelligence, and Arcane by five but increases damage taken by 15%
- Marika’s Scarseal Talisman: Increases Faith, Mind, Intelligence, and Arcane by three but raises damage taken by 10%
- Imp Head helmet: Increases Faith by two
- Haligtree Knight Helm helmet: Increases Faith by two
- Haligtree Helm helmet: Increases Faith by one
- Sacred Crown Helm helmet: Increases Faith by one
- Ruler’s Mask helmet: Increases Faith by one
- Commoner’s Simple Garb chest armour: Increases Faith by one.
All of the things above can help you strengthen your faith. Most items can be found in Haligtree, Altus Plateau, and Leyndell. However, the Two Fingers Heirloom can be found in the Purified Ruins of Liurnia, the Marika’s Scarseal Talisman can be found in Siofra River, and the Commoner’s Simple Garb can be found in Stormveil Castle.
