NPC Summons in Elden Ring are the summonable cooperator NPCs that can be available in a boss fight. These are different from Spirit Ashes and can be activated by using their summon signs that appear in gold. A number of NPC summons have been added since the 1.03 Patch. These are specific to each boss and may have conditions that must be met before they are available as a summon. These conditions could be simple or part of different questlines and may require you to find each NPC and exhaust their dialogue before they become available. When they become available, their sign will usually be visible just outside of the boss fog gates where they can be summoned. Below is the list of NPC Summons and the conditions required.

      Call me a casual but I want to summon everytime i can get two summons so I can also get mimic tear. Its an epic feeling fighting with three other warriors. Fun times indeed.

        Not working for me at all anymore, why?? First it was with Magma Wyrm Makar, should've had TWO golden NPC summon signs there, Blackguard and Millicent, I had done everything in the questline required for them to appear as summons, but nothing. And now I gave D's brother the twinned set and he disappeared, but again, no summon sign to help against the gargoyles. This worked perfectly for months, what is going on?? Can somebody pls help me? I'm trying my first SL1 run so I need these NPC summons -.- playing offline only, but as I said, it worked perfectly for months with different characters. But not anymore and I don't get it.

          "Progress through the Sorceress Sellen questline till she returns to Raya Lucaria Academy to have her summon sign available when facing Radagon." This has got to be the dumbest process in the game just for an NPC summon. You actually go thru 2 NPC questlines just to get her to go back, by which point you'll probably be way overleveled for the Academy and not need her at all.

            You can also summon D in the fight with the Black Knife Assassin in the Black Knife Catacombs and D’s twin brother in the fight with the two Gargoyles in Siofra Aqueduct

              Bernahl can also be summoned for Godskin Duo. Presumably after doing all of taniths questline and defeating Rykard

                For a game with so many npcs and invaders i wish there was more summon signs. Fighting maliketh and that annoying tree sentinel with ensha and sir gideon. Astel with blaidd. Mohg with millicent. Fighting John elden ring and john dark soul with melania would all be really cool. I guess there isint many summons in this game compared to the others because of spirit ashes. Oh well.

                  I think theres something wrong with Rogier's summon condition, his summon is available regardless if i talked to him beforehand or not

                  • There's no prerequisite for Rogier before the Margit fight. You can't even meet him before it unless you skip Stormveil and if you do he gets crippled which means he can't fight. Also if Melina doesn't have to leave you to be available for the Morgott fight

                      bruh you can summon millicent more than anyone, she really is the best waifu

                      damn you fromsoft for killing her!!!!

                        My question is: why would I complete ALL of Sellen’s quest line before doing Raya Lucaria? Is there a reason the game wouldn’t have me going right towards Raya Lucaria??

                          There are no prerequisites to summon Iron Fist Alexander for the Starscourge Radahn. He will always be there when the festival starts.

                          On my first playthrough the Festival was the first time that I ever saw Iron Fist Alexander and only interacted with him AFTER winning against Radahn. So in conclusion, Iron Fist Alexander will always appear.

                            If you for any reason used finger severer to send npc back without fighting boss, their golden summon sign won’t appear again after reload.

                            I learnt this when I carried wrong spells and physick, wanted to sit down at site of grace but couldn’t, so I sent Tragoth and Shrimp guy back. Never able to summon them again.

                              The black blade kindred for Millicent is the one before the lift of rold, not the one outside of gurranq’s place. Correct me if I’m wrong

                                  I think they should add things like people you can hire seeing there are so many knights and soldiers around. It would be like paying them and commanding them to attack things so its like taming something. You should also be able to tame wolves rather than using spirit ashes
