Summons four putrid corpse spirits

Putrid Corpse Ashes is a Spirit and Summon in Elden Ring. Putrid Corpse Ashes are slow and erratic undead beings able to induce some level of poison to Enemies when approached.

Putrid Corpses can also be found as Enemies in Elden Ring. For more information, see Putrid Corpse.

 

Ashen remains in which spirits yet dwell.
Use to summon the spirits of four putrid corpses.

These spirits appear some distance from the summoner. Though their movements are dull and confused, their low moans make them effective at drawing the attention of enemies.  True death does not come easily for them.

      When you turn the voices all the way up, you can hear them say: hey boss, here's what your mother sounded last night.

      It's the only explanation for the stupid high aggro they get and primes the boss to get backshots from you.

        They are the platonic ideal of sandbag tanks: extreme HP, high defenses, lots of aggro. They can't be outflanked by multiple enemies or big aoes and status doesn't affect ashes. They tend to stumble around enough to not all get hit by most attacks at the same time.

        Get an AoW plate and cast holy ground beneath them to make them almost invincible.

        However, they are a poor choice for Maliketh's extreme damage and destined death. They do well enough against godskins, tho.

          Did a bit of testing on these guys vs the greatshield ones, these are better in smaller arenas, greatshield for bigger(unless the boss is on the other end of the huge arena for some reason, then go ahead and summon the corpses

            No one seems to understand.IT IS THERE JOB TO JUST STAND THERE.they just take aggro for the super squishy hard hitting players out there.u want an aggressive attacher.go get the bloodhound knight.

              11k hp by zombie , no particular weakness (unlike the greatshield soldiers), can keep aggro, and if you have shabriri's woe, most ennemies just go back and forth between you and these lads. And if you cast holy ground under them, they will heal faster than they get damaged even in rennala.'s beam, and finally, these guys are chill to hangout with. No pressure, they're just the lazy cool guys, not caring about being the elden lord or whatever, they're your pals and they will hang out

                I really wish those guys had the run and blast part from the caelem ruins zombies, it would be so funny in pvp along with explosions spells and ashes of war like the gelmir magma ball or the one eye shield

                  One of them landed the final hit on radagon, and one survived to the end of the elden beast fight. These guys are absolute METALHEADS.

                    Would have been useful if they blew up ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ easily replaced by the way more useful 5 greatshield guys

                      Everybody seemingly has a grudge against these guys and will agro onto them for no reason which, combined with their GIANT health pool, makes very effective tanks

                        just like the comment below me said "They stand around in the corner, moan the whole time and contribute very little to everything that they're part of"

                          They stand around in the corner, moan the whole time and contribute very little to everything that they're part of.

                          10/10 just like my friends irl

                            These guys are incredible for the duo gargoyle fight. They will be summoned right below the second gargoyles cliff so the second it jumps down will agro on and be distracted while you finish the first one.

                              I thought it was a bug, because they didn't appear in front of me like every other summons (that I've tried). I saw their health pools but not them. On another forum it said they appear at the summons sign and not by the summoner. I tried them by Decaying Ekzeyes, rode around still not seeing them, until finally the dragon started stomping them way the hell away from where I summoned them.

                              No big deal in a small-ish arena I guess but a bit weird in a larger one.

                                Most useless ashes I've used don't move from summon location will not attack even when they've drawn aggro with their moans. HUGE waste of FP better spent on firing off a moon or rocks spell. If you're running goal cave for these guys don't waste the stonesword key. Theres a sweet wakasazi that costs 13 dex to use, also useles compared to literally any other starting gear in the game. Including bare handed.

                                  i just read someone who count their hp and turn out they have most hp out of all ashes with each of this guy have 11k hp total of 44k hp with all 4 at +10. Other tank ashes are usually just have 9k hp but each of this guy have 11k hp but these guy literally just stand in middle of the arena doing nothing but hugging their head and screaming lmao.

                                    They work really well against Full Grown Fallingstar Beast. At +5 he wasn't able kill a single one of these guys.

                                      So on a whim I tried to summon them to fight Loretta in the Haligtree...I couldn't. I've got 82 full FP and was inside the arena.

                                        I used these at +8 against Astel 2: Electric Boogaloo. They spawned in right in his face, super great range and unbelievably tanky.

                                          If you just need ashes to tank and not really do damage, these guys are it. The most HP each out of any ash, but sometimes spawn too far to be useful and move very slow.

                                            40 fp cost, taunts! boss in gaol cave is not so hard so fairly easy to get, and unbelievably tanky!
                                            margit and erdtree horsy have a hard time finishing these guys off at level one, crazy tanky like everybody says.
                                            definitely a MUST TRY! if your character doesn't have high fp.

                                              They tank unbelievably well. My noble ashes kept melting against the watchdogs but these guys tanked them like champs

                                                These guys and the Land Squirts from their respective ashes both spawn in predetermined locations. These locations are denoted by (I believe) the little pillars which tend to have messages on them relating to "but whole". Most areas where you can summon stuff have one -- I believe the exception to this is the smaller boss arenas where they would get in the way, but you should still be able to summon them.

                                                • Ok Ive tested them out some and just looking out for it they do very noticeably draw agro. Enemies without provocation will stop fighting you and turn to go beat on these guys.

                                                    If you’re a squishy character, this will make the game trivial. They alone don’t do much damage, but alone each of the 4 corpses are tanks. If you are having boss problems, these guys will pull the aggro and keep them busy. Yet to find a boss (even multi bosses) that has taken all 4 out.

                                                      Tried to summon them and their names and health bars appear on the left but they just dont appear anywhere in the world. Is that a bug or do they need any specific conditions to be summoned?
                                                      The description says that they appear a bit further away from the caster but i was waiting for 3 minutes and they dont appear at all.

                                                        The gaol cave entrance is near where the meteoric blade is placed on the interactive map, by caelid waypoint ruins. Do these respawn like the skeletons do?

                                                          I got them in a Gaol Cave in Caelid. Once you kill everything after pulling the lever you can find a path that brings you down to a boss. I think i remember it being after falling through a fake floor in one of the branches of the cave. The boss is a barbarian.
