Looking for dragons in Elden Ring? These majestic creatures will rip your heart out at a moment’s notice, so why not take theirs first? You can use dragon hearts to buy powerful dragon-based incantations; these spells can be redeemed using dragon hearts at the Church of Dragon Communion in Limgrave, which can be found on a small island on the other side of Dissenter’s Cave, and the Cathedral of Communion in southern Caelid. The spells vary from transforming into a dragon to claw through enemies, to inflicting a deadly AoE fire spell that burns enemies to a crisp.
