Players of Elden Ring have access to many different forms of combat. They can use powerful weapons, or wield deadly spells to vanquish their foes. The spells and magic fall into a few different categories.

One of these are Aberrant sorcery spells, which is a form of magic that is based on dealing thorn damage to enemies. Here is how players can find and learn these powerful thorny magic spells.

Aberrant sorcery spells can dish out hefty thorn-based damage. The player is able to fire out deadly thorns to unleash devastation on their enemies. However, each time they use an Aberrant sorcery spell, they will take a small amount of damage as well.

Players can end up killing themselves if they use it too much or at the wrong time. These spells benefit from high faith-based builds as well.

Boosting the power of the Aberrant sorcery spells

There are a few ways that players can boost the power of their Aberrant sorceries in Elden Ring. This will greatly increase their potency and can help them defeat more enemies.

Items such as the Staff of the Guilty or the Azur's Glintstone staff can boost the power spells. Armor sets like Alberich's can enhance the spells and should be used if the player plans on using them a lot.
