How to Heal in Elden Ring

You can heal yourself in Elden Ring by using the Flask of Crimson Tears. Along with this, there are many more ways to heal in this game. Let us take a look at them all.

  • Site of Grace: Resting at the Site of Grace is the most basic method to completely heal yourself. It works like how Bonfires used to work in Dark Souls games. This also refills your flasks. Do remember while you can heal yourself it will also revive all the enemies you killed.
  • Using Flask of Crimson Tears: Flask of Crimson Tears can be used to restore a certain amount of health. This is a good way to heal as this won’t respawn enemies. You can assign all 4 charges to it in order to heal yourself 4 times. And as you collect Golden Seeds you can increase this number.
  • Heal Spell: This method might not be for everyone but mages can definitely make the most of it. It is an Incantation that costs 32 FP (Focus Points) and takes 1 memory slot. You also need a minimum of level 12 in Faith in order to use this spell.
  • Urgent Heal Spell: Another spell for mages is Urgent Heal. It costs 16 FP and can be cast while moving. Although it doesn’t restore that large amount of health when compared to Heal. But the Faith level needed to perform this spell is 8. So you should be able to use it early.
