When playing Elden Ring, players experience the thrill of exploring uncharted territories and encounter many difficult bosses. Also, there are many terms that we need to know to effectively use our character’s potential, and one of them is Focus Points, or FP. In this article, we will do a deep dive and learn more about the Focus Points in Elden Ring.
Let’s jump right in!
What is FP, or Focus Point?
Focus Point is a stat that determines the number of spells or abilities that you can perform. This is the blue bar below the HP bar (red) on the top-left corner of the screen. In other words, this is the mana bar that enables you to use Ashes of War, perform specific weapon skills, cast magic spells, or summon spirits. These things will help you beat your enemies faster.

How do I increase my FP?
You can increase your character’s FP by:
- Focus on the mind stat or attribute when you level up. This is the most common way to grow your Focus Points.
- Using talisman items that increase FP
- Looking for golden seeds across the Lands Between and using them to increase the charge of Cerulean tears you can use
- Drinking the Flask of Cerulean Tears when your FP has been depleted.
How can you replenish your FP?
You can replenish your Focus points by doing the following:
- Using the flask of cerulean tears
- Resting at the site of grace
- Defeating a large group of enemies in a certain area
Is there equipment, an item, or a weapon that allows FP regen?
No, it does not exactly regenerate, but it increases FP on certain conditions, like defeating an enemy or reducing FP consumption. These are the weapons that will grant FP increases every time you defeat enemies.
- Sacrificial axe:
- Sword of Milos
- Ancestral Spirit’s Horn
Is there an unlimited FP in Elden Ring?
I wouldn’t say unlimited throughout, but yes, there is. There are weapons and talisman items that will help you gain extra FP, lessen the consumption, and nullify the consumption for a very short time only. This video will explain more:
What stats should I grow to increase my FP?
Once you have accumulated enough grace, go and rest on a site of grace and choose the level-up feature. Spend all the grace on the Mind attribute to increase your character’s Focus Points. This will enable your character to increase his or her Focus Points and allow you to perform more skills and spells.
Is there an item that boosts my character’s max FP?
Yes! You can equip the Cerulean Amber Medallion. This enables your character to boost the maximum FP. This video shows all the locations of the cerulean amber medallions across the Lands Between
What are the FP costs of spells and skills?
The amount of FP consumption varies for every skill because there is a range from weak to strong spells or skills. The stronger the spell or skill, the bigger the requirement for Focus Points. You can check the Elden Ring wiki for the complete list of spells and incantations.
What class should I choose if I want to maximize my FP?
You will need to focus on a character with a magic build. The Astrologer class is the most recommended if you want to focus on magic building. Regardless of the class you choose, you are free to spend the points on any stat you prefer.
Is Focus Points different from Focus?
Yes, they are different and separate stats. The character FP is used to perform skills, while the focus attribute is a resistance stat that strengthens your character against sleep and madness caused by some enemies in the Lands Between.
So far, we have covered almost everything about Focus Points, and I hope you learned a lot. Now you will be able to explore the Lands Between, and you are now one step closer to beating the game easily. This is also a helpful article: 13 Effective Tips on How to Avoid Dying in Elden Ring.
