Elden Ring: How to Use Spirit Ashes

Summoning by Spirit Ashes is something new from Ring of Elden. Summoning not only looks cool, but it’s also good with crowd control and can help you play a ranged style of play. With over 30 different in-game summons, playing as a remote summoner is not a bad idea. In order to achieve this style of play, you will need to collect a lot of Spirit Ash. Here’s everything you need to know about Spirit Ashes in Elden Ring.

Where are the spirit ashes in Elden Ring

Spirit Ashes are items you must use to summon spirits of specific creatures and warriors to fight for you. But before you can summon fantasy battle buddies, you need to get the Spirit Calling Bell. This special item is a prerequisite for summoning in Elden Ring. To get the Spirit Calling Bell, Talk to the witch Renna at Elleh Church.

Once you’ve claimed the Spirit Calling Bell, you now need to find yourself some Spirit Ashes. Each Summon has its own Spirit Ash, and as mentioned earlier, there are over 30 Spirit Ashes to collect. Even the Elden Ring Wiki doesn’t have all of the Spirit Ashes locations. Here are some Spirit Ashes locations we know of:

  • Lone Wolf Spirit Ashes are given by Renna
  • Wandering nobel ashes are found in the catacombs of Stormfoot
  • Noble Sorcerer Ashes is acquired by defeating the Erdtree Burial Watchdog

How to Use Spirit Ashes in Elden Ring

There are specific requirements when it comes to using Spirit Ashes. Using Spirit Ashes requires FP, which is the Mana of Elden Ring, so make sure you have enough to cast the summon. Once you get Spirit Ashes, you need to assign them to your consumable slot to use them. To summon, simply press the Use Item key/button. To dismiss the spirits, press the button/key again. All of this can be done on TorrentBesides.

When it comes to summoning in battle, there are a few more rules. You cannot use Spirit Ashes to summon if you are playing online. Too, you can only summon in specific areas. You’ll know when you can when a tombstone icon appears on your screen. One last thing to note is that you can only summon once in any given area. If your summons dies or is rejected, you will need to rest at a Grace Site to restore summoning ability to that area.

There are many other new items to use in Elden Ring, such as Ashes of War and Great Runes. You’ll be able to upgrade your Spirit Ashes later in the game. To do this, you’ll need to check out our Elden Ring guides for more.
