      I wanna play as a tiche character, bigger body, faster dodge.

      And fight other tiche-like characters, and we dodge each other and have a fight. Instead of they two shot me, I 15 shot them, and I have healing flasks and they don’t.

        I’ve always noticed that when Malenia begins her fight by walking slowly to you, Tiche almost always hits with her blade of death. So when she’s running, you might want to use black blade or blade of death yourself if you need the debuff.

          Tiche: w-what are thou doing t-tarnished. (Blushing)

            All the beta males be simping for Melina or Ranni, but let’s be real those two are just gold diggers. Ranni just wants you to become her lord and Melina only wanted to use you to get to the capital. Tiche is where its at she be fighting a long side you try’in to help you become Elden lord, what has either “wifu” ever done for you. My dudes Tiche is the real wifu worthy of my fellow giga chad’s affections.

              Ranged attack will always be relevant due to hp scaling and dodge tanks enemy attacks. She performs the spirit ash job properly since she can deal damage and be a strong distracting tank to take the load off of you. Truly is one of the best ashes in the game, might even be better than mimic tear.

                I just had an odd problem with Tiche, while fighting the first Farum Azula dragon.

                The fight takes place on a long, tilted walkway with a fall-to-your-death edge on the right and a wall on the left (as you enter the area). A minute or less into the fight, Tiche started walking into the wall. Facing the wall, her legs moving, not doing anything else. She paid no attention to the dragon, which began taking an unhealthy interest in me. I died.

                I worried that this unfortunate career choice on Tiche's part would continue, but it didn't. In the next couple of my attempts against the dragon she performed appropriately, and eventually we won.

                I've never seen this problem before, with Tiche or any other summon. Has anyone else seen it?

                    Tiche is the only summons that managed to get killing blows against four major bosses for me, Maelina, the Fire Giant, Radagon and the Elden Beast, get this summons and get it to +10, you won't be disappointed.

                      Absolutely bonkers against Malenia. Will dodge most of her attacks and rip off 1/10th if her health with her ranged attack. Managed to even score the killing blow in the second phase, vs my level 10 mimic tear that struggled to make it past the first.

                      • 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.

                          This thing is so good. Was taking a few tries on Mohg then decided, "What if i try a spirit ash for this?" then saw i got all ghost gloveworts and heard tiche was good. Started upgrading and the next try we beat Mohg with no sweat.

                          Tiche is too good for this game lol

                          • According to the Stormhawk King spirit ashes can refuse to be summoned if they so wish. That's to say, you killed Tiche's mother and took her spirit ashes away, but she's still willing to be summoned by you?

                              Apparently they patched a black knife right into her prefrontal cortex at some point, because she doesn’t anything but pace back and forth, while I yell at her for being a useless c word. Nothing like her ultra-aggressive sisters.

                                Literally the worst spirit ever. Terrible damage and garbage AI. 0/10 mid AF

                                They should’ve just put Friede in this game as an agile spirit.

                                • We can't apply Curse to Bosses.... But Tiche has Destined Death :)


                                  Hide behind a Greatshield and let her melt Bosses. Dont let them touch her tho, she is fragile.

                                        Summon is awesome but have but sides as well. Ok is doing a lot of damage but she attacking some times. Mostly 25%attack 75% dodge.

                                          The AI for this is excellent, perfect balance of attack & defense. I wish the Mimic was intelligent like this. Honestly able to hold it's own in a lot of engagements. Plays midrange & close range perfectly.

                                            The name is probably inspired by the Greek Goddess of fortune Tyche, the equivalent of Lady Fortuna of the Roman Pantheon, spelled differently obviously, but pronounced as "Tiche" in ancient Greek. Not an inappropriate name if you ask me, seeing how she carries yo sorry ass throughout the game.

                                              Compare to Tiche, Mimic is soooo clumsy when fighting Malenia. Wait maybe that’s just how I look when I’m fighting.

                                                  Alecto is the name of Tiche’s mother, but is also the name of one of the Greek Furies. Another of the Furies is named Tisiphone, which may be the inspiration for Tiche’s name.

                                                    Usually I am not to much into tall girls, but I shall be damned if Tiche ain't a tall cup of water!

                                                    But for real, Tiche is one hell of an amazing Spirit Ash! I never really liked Spirits tbh. I always felt like the idea of Spirits is actually really cool but I didn't like their implementation into the game. I mean in the end Spirits Ashes were supposed to take aggro and give the player some breathing room but somewhat this just feels unsatisfying.
                                                    Tiche is different tho! Whenever I summon her, I immediately have the feeling that there is someone fighting along my side instead of just being there and occasionally taking a hit.
                                                    She is fast, hits very hard, dodges a lot which in turn makes her surprisingly endurable, has ranged and melee attacks and most importantly, has a badass look to her!

                                                    As a souls veteran and former enemy of Spirit Ashes (was a weird mindset looking back to it), I never thought playing with a summon could be this fun! HOWEVER, I have to admit that having Tiche +10 can trivialize quite a lot of the games bosses. Tiche is a legendary spirit and she really lives up to that.

                                                    Conclusion is, if you're looking for the ultimate controller annihilating challenge, she is definetly not for you. But if you like to have a chill experience or you want to do some kind of Fate cosplay where you send your servant into battle and let her go crazy while you hide, give her a try!

                                                        The spot was left of the mob when facing its start point. I started the charge so it pushed from the right side.

She gave him one little love tap, and they both immediately took ten million damage and exploded. Considering FromSoft games, this may be an intentional thing about the Rune of Death, but I can't test it again, since the game saved before I closed it down

                                                                    But, in return, give all the other spirits buffs. I know Tiche is still gonna be goated, but could she share the spotlight with anyone other than mimic tear?

You can land a successive hit right as she starts to get off the ground. Back off when you run low on FP, and then repeat. Not a bad fight. Very cool music, and an exciting duel vibe.

I then found tiche then gave it a try for fun, paird with blood hounds step on a mage death reaper build which i dunno why i forgot to equip it the first 17 times but after that one run mel died and i could finally go onto more suffering.

She survives pretty long even with her lower HP against many of the games End-Game Bosses due to this.

I'm sorry, Elden Ring--you're still the GOAT. I'll just use Tiche next time. Mal, you're going down girl.

No longer a fight.

                                                                                                    • Very useful in the Final Boss Fight for both stages including the ever obnoxious you know what Beast final boss. Will probably die eventually but deal a lot of damage and survive longer than most. Probably better than Mimic Tear there.

Then you can spam Adula's moonblade when she's staggered. Then chug flask and repeat.

She's fun to be around with, highly agile and she gives most bosses a hard time trying to hit her when she takes the aggro
