If you want to cast Incantations in Elden Ring, you’ll need a Sacred Seal, and which one you use will depend on how much you invest in the Faith stat or other stats for specific Seals. If you want to max out Faith and use the best possible Seal, then Erdtree Seal is the best overall, and getting it will take you some time, but it’s well worth the journey and the danger. Erdtree Seal offers the highest Incant Scaling at high Faith values, though it provides no other inherent bonuses. Here’s where to find Erdtree Seal in Elden Ring.

To find the Erdtree Seal, you first need to find your way to the Volcano Manor atop Mt. Gelmir, west of the Altus Plateau. Start your quest in the volcanic part of the Manor at the Prison Town Church Site of Grace.

From this Site of Grace, exit the church and take a right. You’ll see a group of dilapidated rooftops in front of you and a path leading further right. Head onto the rooftops. Keep to the left side of the rooftops until you see a large drop down to your right with a chimney in the middle. You’ll know the place because below the rooftops is a firepit, and if you take some time to look around, you’ll also see an Omen Killer enemy waiting by the fireside.

Jump down to ground level and either kill the Omen Killer or avoid it long enough to reach the back end of the alleyway. A well-lit prison cell door will be on the right side of the dead end. Go inside.

You’ll find the Erdtree Seal on a body at the back of the cell. Stats-wise, the Seal starts with C-level Faith scaling, but its scaling quality gradually increases as it’s upgraded. At +1, it gets B-level scaling; at +3, it gets A-level scaling; and at +5, it gets S-level scaling. You’ll also need to obtain quite a few Somber Smithing Stones if you want to max it out.
