For players looking to build up a powerful spellcaster in Elden Ring, understanding memory slots and their importance becomes a necessity. The following guide will hence make sure that would-be sorcerers know all there is to know about memory slots and how to increase them in Elden Ring.
How to Increase Memory Slots in Elden Ring
Elden Ring only offers two memory slots at the start, meaning that players are limited to using only two spells at once.
That may be enough at the start of the game, but players will not be able to survive for long if they keep venturing further and deeper with just two spells on hand.
Increasing those memory slots will hence allow players to have more spells to use in combination for powerful attacks. However, increasing memory slots will require players to do a little work.
The players will have two methods in Elden Ring to increase their memory slots. The methods require the players to get the following items in Elden Ring.
- Memory Stones
- Moon of Nokstella Talisman
You can get memory stones by killing major enemy bosses in the open world. Some of the mini-bosses will drop them as well. These bosses can be found after completing Legacy dungeons in Elden Ring, which are complete labyrinths full of all kinds of creatures.
You can also obtain a memory stone by simply purchasing it from the Twin Maiden Husks in the Roundtable Hold Hub area. If you are starting a new journey as a spellcaster, we highly recommend you consider purchasing her wares as soon as possible.
She sells the stone for 30,000 Runes which is a fair price considering their rarity and importance. Take note that this is the only stone you can purchase in the game.
As already stated, memory stones will allow players to increase the total number of their memory slots. As soon as the player has collected the stone, the memory stone will increase on its own without the need to do anything.
While there are other ways in the game to unlock more slots, finding and using memory stones should still be a priority for upcoming spellcasters. They are simply the most efficient way of doing so.
Another method to increase your memory slots is by using the Moon of Nokstella Talisman. Equipping this Talisman will extend the memory slots by two.
This means if you have got all the memory stones and have been using the maximum number of slots and yet are not satisfied by the count of Incantations and spells that you carry, you can still extend the number by two.
This method only works as long as you carry the Talisman. Once unequipped, the two extra sots will vanish, and you will lose two spells.

After knowing the importance and usage of the memory stones in Elden Ring, it’s time to discuss the locations where you can find all these memory stones.

Elden Ring Moon of Nokstella Location
The Moon of Nokstella is a talisman hidden in the eternal city, Nokstella. This region is very similar to the Siofra River or Nokron. The Talisman can be found inside the Throne Room, Northwest of Nokstella Basin Site of Grace.
But in order to get into the Nokstella City, players need to complete Ranni’s Questline or at least a portion of it. After doing so, players will be able to open the gates of Nokstella City.
How Many Memory Slots Can You Have in Elden Ring?
That’s actually simple math. The total number of memory slots is 12. Two are those that you get by default. Further, eight memory stones will open eight more memory slots for you, and this will take the count to ten.
Using the Moon of Nokstella Talisman will extend this number by two and will make the total number of memory slots 12.
