Elden Ring: Best Talismans for Mage

There are various Talismans in Elden Ring if you are following a Mage build, but Radagon’s Soreseal is considered the best in the game.

In this thrilling video game, Elden Ring, you can create and customise a character with which to take on the adventure of repairing the titular Elden Ring in order to become the Elden Lord.

The game is primarily presented through a third-person perspective, which allows players to freely explore a persistent world.

Before you can step into the fictitious realm, you have to choose a character class. There are currently 10 playable classes, each of which has unique skills and abilities that you can use during a battle.

Moreover, each class has to be equipped with specific gear to enhance its abilities. Many players wonder what the best Talismans are for the Mages.

Are there Mages in Elden Ring?

Theoretically, there is not a Mage class in Elden Ring, but you can choose a class and create a build to function as a Mage class.

The best Mage build boils down to your  play style and your chosen class. It is advisable that you select the Astrologer class if you want a well-rounded and powerful build, but you can also create a reliable Mage build with the Prophet Class.

Of all the classes, the Astrologer class appears to fit effortlessly with a Mage Build, and therefore, you should use it instead of the Prophet.
