Summons spirit of Blackflame Monk Amon
Ashen remains in which spirits yet dwell.
Use to summon the spirit of Amon, the Blackflame Monk.
Amon swore fealty to the god-slaying black flame, and so became the first fire monk to turn traitor.
Or perhaps it is better said that he fled from the Giants' Flame—out of cowardice.

Elden Ring Blackflame Monk Amon Ashes Guide
- 19 points in Mind are needed to employ this Spirit Ash, FP increasing talismans ect. excepted.
- Amon frequently casts Godslayer Incantations, which deal fire damage and inflict the same percentage based DOT one would expect from that type of incantation.
- As such, he scales rather well into late game bosses even at lower upgrade levels, as percentage based damage doesn't scale with upgrade level and is powerful by default.
- The player is till encouraged to upgrade Amon, of course, as he is not on the tanky side for a Spirit Ash, nor is he all that mobile, so he will need all the HP he can get.
- Works best in tandem with a build that also employs Black Flame in some form, from incantations or Ashes of War, as this will ensure near constant uptime of the DOT.
