      Kind of a weird use, but if you use any of the heal on kill items, like the Serpent God's curved sword, and even the Sacrificial Axe, the deaths of the rats, and any summon for that matter, actually gets you those effects. The rats having no cost to summon means that at +10 they net you 20 FP and however much healing mid fight as you stack between those effects. Actually kind of amazing if this is all you're using them for xD

        Did a playthrough with these dumb rats. Most of the time they would just spawn far away from the boss and do jack ****. But this actually came in clutch against the gargoyle duo fight. The rats spawned at the back of the map, which aggroed the 2nd gargoyle and caused it to take forever to catch up with me.

        10/10 would recommend

          These rats make the game funny. I remember fighting Maliketh and crying for someone to take the aggro. And I see my last rat boy in the distance so I start sprinting towards my buddy yelling “GETTEM PLEASEEE” and I tell you that rat took the aggro like a champ and seconds later gets obliterated:D . Then again that rat won me the fight all I needed was a second so I can rot breath him and run . I win 20 secs later

                I loved this ashe when dropped, fun ashes are the best, they make the right balance between fun and instant win ashes, the only problem is when fight finish I miss them xD

                  I figured out why this spirit is so cheap AND why they're summoned from so far away.
                  You aren't actually summoning all those rats, the only thing being revived and upgraded is your Personal SecRatary, and whenever you summon it it rounds up its rat buddies to climb out of their sewers to give you a hand. I can already imagine it talking: "No sewers in Elphael? Worry not boss, we had a MonoRat set up there about a week ago. Keep the lady lorewalking, and my boys'll be there in a minute."

                    It's a free summon. It's kind of hard to give them any grief, given if their ai had them sit in a corner doing nothing, it would still be a net positive

                      north lake of ageel monument doesn’t make them apear…….the summon animation and their hp bar shows but no rats in sight………and summoning them inside the beastial sanctuary makes them summon next to the gargoyle outside, which start the boss fight

                              It should be noted the both the image and the description of these spirit ashes changes as it upgrades because their function also changes. At base, the DO multiply. Once you upgrade them to "Giant Rat Ashes", they lose that perk but gain more damage on their attacks. It's something to consider because you could look at it as a downgrade in certain situations.

                                  It would be so cool if you could do frenzied flame incantations next to them and then they’d turn into a special frenzied variant.

                                    Great ashes for pure casters, you don't spend FP and the more leveled up the more tanky and in number they are, they will harrass the enemy while you can shoot spells at a safe distance!

                                          I summoned these as a joke against Loretta. Her slashes went over them, she spent almost the entire fight pinned to the wall by these guys. It was hilarious.

                                              With the upcoming arena with spirit ashes included, I wonder how these lovely Lads would suffice. They're free so no downside to any build, do a surprising amount of stagger, and the existence of up to five should mean an inconvenience to any non-AOE using tarnished. Probably not meta like what I expect from Oleg and Rollo, but certainly an interesting option.

                                                    Then I saw that they were just the smallest version of rat. Mildly disappointed lol

However, I want to add that the image and description of the ashes changes as well. At +10, there are five rats in the image, and the last line of the description reads, "These vermin once seemed to multiply incessantly, but their fecundity in death has abated for now."

                                                                                  Alas, I did not record the description for when there are four rats.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    I'm not sure about these guys, every time I summon them in, they slowly creep walk out of the shadows in unison snapping their fingers and whispering "ratta-tat, ratta-tat, ratta-tat".

                                                                                    Really not helpful against the boss.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        Consumes no FP OR HP! They are completely free. I don't know if this was intentional but as long as it stays that way, these are my immediate go-to summons, and will be for a while as a low-FP character.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          Actually very useful to take an area by surprise if you're struggling with it, since they typically spawn in the middle of groups of enemies. I'm not exactly sure, either, but I think they might be able to see and attack invisible enemies as well. Very good for the Town of Sellia.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

If you are not playing summons, you can kindly add this cute horde to your arsenal and save some FP. Also, when you upgrade it, more rats will be added. +1 rat is added at level 4-5 and +1 more at level 8-9 (i dont remember at what level exactly). Very interesting summon.

                                                                                              • Anonymous

There will be a few small rats and one large rat inside a small stable, right next to the summon.

Take the path all the way around and right after windmill village (south) there will be a shed with rats and a white item. Get the item jump out the window to avoid being ganked!
