As an incantation, the Elden Ring Swarm of Flies spells requires 11 Faith, along with 16 Arcane before it can be used. Upon activation, the caster will release a swarm of blood flies ahead of them that attack nearby enemies, dealing damage and inducing blood loss. It can also be activated while moving, making it good while backing up from groups of enemies, and costs 14 FP per use.

The Swarm of Flies spell can only be accessed toward the end of the game in the Mohgwyn Palace, which is an underground region below Caelid. You can see this area from the Siofra River Well, but you can't reach it until you find a teleporter at the Consecrated Snowfield, in the Mountaintops of the Giants. 


Activating this will teleport you to the Mohgwyn Palace, nearby to the Palace Approach Ledge-Road. Make your way to the swamp of blood, and hug the east rock wall travelling north until you get to a small cave. Inside, you can loot a dead body to earn the spell. 

That's our primer on the Elden Ring Swarm of Flies spell, and now you know where to find it and what it does when cast.
