          See, If u rly like Oleg. Have some cursed blood pot on you. Throw them at a target you want to have completely annihilated. Watch Oleg go super saiyajin. =)
          If you build yourself in honor of Oleg to summon a minic tear "version" of Oleg the mimic will apply the pot itself and it has infinite charges. A beautiful slaughter one way or another.

            Not as broken as the Mimic Tear, but easily superior in terms of cool factor, not to mention he's an absolute homie who will rarely let you down, this boy slaps and you can't really go wrong with him most of the time.

              This guy kicks a**. If you are confused on which summon to use, just pick this guy. He is tanky, has good damage, and his moveset is crazy. He looks so cool when he comes in and unsheathes his swords

                Who wouldn't want to side with a banished knight that can poise through anything, hit like a truck while having the durability of a truck, and being surprisingly speedy for a guy with 2 greatswords

                  Has he been nerfed in the last update? I found him a day or two ago and I upgraded him to +6. I summoned him on the edge of the blood-filled lake to see what he could do against the albinaurics here. They hit a lot harder than they do in liurnia so I was curious if he would live up to the hype. After I saw the damage he was doing I was pretty pis*ed off that I'd used six ghost glovewart to upgrade him, his attacks were only doing damage in the double figure range, I never once saw him hit for more than that. He did last a lot longer than I ever would have in the middle of all those enemies, but if I only wanted a decoy to draw agro there are better options that don't need ghost glovewart to upgrade them. If he hasn't been nerfed does anyone have any ideas as to why I was seeing damage that wasn't worth the FP cost of summoning him?

                    I haven't bothered with any of the hero's grave dungeons after seeing what fringefolk was all about, and I really don't like the idea of having to deal with those chariots. after seeing all the love oleg is getting in the comments though, its obvious I need to put in the effort to get his spirit ash. I've killed three ulcerated tree spirits up to now, they don't have the intimidation factor black blade kindred or the nights cavalry have, so I'm confident I can kill the one that drops this spirit ash, the dungeon itself is what concerns me, especially how many times I'm going to die trying to get to the boss room.

                      In my totally anecdotal/vibes based/don't-at-me-about-math-I-didn't-do-any-math-and-I'm-not-gonna estimation, aside from a purpose-built mimic tear, this is the most consistent summon in the game, and pound-for-pound the best. I don't know that I'd say he's the best summon for any individual fight, but I don't think there's a single boss he'd be lower than third. At 100 FP he costs less than Tiche, Dung, Lhutel, Rollo, Amon, Kristoff, and six or seven others.

                      You need 23 mind to summon Tiche
                      You need 16 mind to summon Oleg

                      (Ok I did a little math, by which I mean I looked at two tables)

                      My beautiful boy, bringing home that B+ every time.

                        As a dual greatsword strength build Claymore-Bastard
                        I'm so jealous of his move set
                        like damn I wish I could do that and that

                        • I tested Dung, Omenkiller, Amon, Tiche and Oleg at the Gatefront grace (where there is that large group of lower-level knights). At least for group fights like this, the ranking is:

                          Dung > Omenkiller > Oleg > Tiche and Amon

                          Omenkiller and Oleg had really similar performance but Amon was definitely the worst, once getting down to 20% health. Dung was the best. Against large groups of humanoid enemies, his rolling gave him more survivability. Tiche of course has the coolest move set but I found that he performance is the most variable. Sometimes she performs similar to Omenkiller and Oleg but once she almost died (~5% health left).

                          On top of that - I witnessed Dung pull off a critical hit. I've never seen any other summon do that. Perhaps Tiche does it too but I haven't seen it happen. So I wonder if it is something specific to puppets.

                          In terms of sheer survivability though, I think that Omenkiller and Oleg are the most "consistent".

                          Overall though, I would consider Dung, Omenkiller and Oleg to be S+ Tier (as well as Mimic if you have a good build). You really can't go wrong with any of these. Aside from Mimic, Dung is probably the best if you have a bleed build.

                          • Oleg SMASH…the best spirit in the game for me. Holds argo of bosses like crazy, destroys mobs, beefy as the ole 96er…this dude is a killer. Damn Oleg calm damn dude. lol

                                Now I kinda wish he was like the Castle Sol Knights, and he built up frostbite with his whirlwind. I am a tiny bit jealous.

                                  summoning him for Commander Niall at Castle Sol made the first half of the battle very confusing, still an absolute unit tho.

                                    Yeps, he might be outclassed by late game ashes, but Oleg still has a better ai! Oleg attack constantly and his storm attack can catch up with some annoying constantly moving bosses. When you take damage, Oleg will switch his target to protect you while others won't. Take him with you and he will be your shield!

                                        When you summon him and he pulls out his swords, charges and spins at mach speed on enemies, you understand why they had to banish this beast.

                                          As of Patch 1.04 FP level scaling is much better and you only need 16 mind to be able to summon Oleg so aside from wretch, vagabond, and hero simply having the Godrick Great Rune active can allow most starters to summon Oleg, for those 3 other starters just equip the Marika Scarseal or invest a few levels into mind.

                                            One of the best spirit ashes. Significantly better than his brother knight Engvall and a tad better than Lhutel. Quite durable, very mobile and extremely aggressive. He is a solid performer (especially at +6-10). Worth spending your grave flowers on.

                                            • i do not care if Oleg is outclassed by other summons in the late game. Nothing is cooler than this guy in full armor, with a majestic ponytail, walking slowly towards the enemy before turning into a literal beyblade. Not to mention his cute little duck feet

                                              Oleg is the saviour for melee users, especially those with slower weapons

                                                Just started journey 2 with my +10 Oleg, immediately beat the ulcerated tree spirit and got his ashes again....but I noticed the description between the two is slightly different...... the final line changes a bit. Instead of "Oleg earned the hero's honor of Erdtree Burial" for the +0, it says "Oleg was welcomed back to the Erdtree as a hero" for +10. Anyone know if this happens for all +10 spirits?

                                                      people are sleeping on this ash.

                                                      probaly the best ash for most of the game.

                                                      why?

                                                      1. insanely tanky. has very high hp.
                                                      2. aggresive as hell
                                                      3. great dmg due to wielding dual greatswords.
                                                      4. great at holding emity and regaining it.
                                                      5. available literally AT THE START OF THE GAME albeit difficult boss guards it but given his power this makes sense.

                                                      this is an S tier summon. there is a few slightly better ones but most of them arent available till way later in the game.

                                                        OK, some weirdness with this guy (on PS4). I haven't been to the locations he's found but sometime after patch1.03 he appeared in my spirit list anyway. I upgraded mind and used him a few times just for fun. Last night it installed 1.05 and he's gone again. Fortunately I now have the headless gal to replace him, but anyone else notice this?

                                                          Oleg has got to be the most aggressive tanky summon I've found so far. He practically solo'd the first phase of rennala, then in the second phase he kept stunning her and stopping her casts. Very solid choice if you want an aggressive attacker.

                                                                  • Anonymous

Dual wields greatswords so he is even good for open world fighting with lots of wide swinging attacks, and was MVP for drawing aggro when fighting Double Gargoyle bosses.

                                                                    • Anonymous

He will stand there in lava, hyped on whatever spirit drug/vengeance he is fueled by that day and beyblade his way to victory. He will walk back panting ready for more demanding the souls of whoever is weak enough to be aggro'd by this monster.

                                                                      • Anonymous

I have acquired this guy very early (I did fight the tree spirit for 2-3 hours to get it). I have used him in all fights I could. I think he died in 3 fights ive done so far, all of which involves black flame or insane damage, like the dragonkin solders (the ones in the underground river zones) and he tanked most of the fight, despite the boss one shotting me. This guy is worth all the efforts I spent on him.

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

So for those who don't want to upgrade Mind there is still a chance to use him for bosses later.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

( The 2 of them are Considered Legendary Spirit Summons that Cost alot of FP ). Altho those kinds of Spirits can dish out , Tank and stay for awhile in Battles with Bosses... I highly suggest grabbing both , even tho Luhtel costs 104 FP abit more than Oleg but she dishes out insane damage as Melee and Ranged with her Lance throws ( Luhtel also has a Great Shield ). I'd say the Best Overall Spirit Ashes untill getting later on with Mad Pumpkin Head , and Dark Blade Tiche... However Oleg is also a Solid choice as he can also Tank heavily plus he breaks Boss poises pretty often. Reach 20 Mind for 100 total FP to cast Oleg early on. ( Upgrading Oleg to +1 atleast would also be better , pretty much wont die unless facing really tough Demi-God Bosses or Dragon late-bosses ). Getting Mind upto 20 atleast is essential with pretty much any build regardless... Plus Elden Ring offers a huge array of approaches & levels besides the Main bosses. Imo Luhtel is better and worth the Flower Upgrades even untill the Final Boss of the Game honestly.

                                                                                • Anonymous

This guy does cost a lot of FP (at 20 mind he'll consume the entire bar) but so far he's the best at distracting enemies and can even breaking their poise to allow you get free hits in.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

He hasn't died in any boss fight yet although I've yet to try to kill the dragons with him.
