Spirit Ashes in Elden Ring are companions, often mimicking the Lands Between's Enemies, summoned by the the Spirit Calling Bell to aid you in Combat. This page covers how they function, the spirit ashes available, summon costs, and a community-driven list of their relative strength.

 

How to use Spirit Ashes

To use Spirit Ashes, players must first obtain the Spirit Calling Bell from Renna at the Church of Elleh [Map Link].

Similar to Items, Spirit Ashes can be equipped to and used from your Quick Slots or Pouch. However, they can only be used while not in Multiplayer Coop and when near a Rebirth Monument.

Can you Summon Two Ashes in Elden Ring?

After summoning in a given area, you are not allowed to summon again in that area until you rest at any Sites of Grace or Fast Travel.

  • Players may reuse the Spirit Ashes to dismiss a summon.
  • Leaving the boundary of a valid summoning area will dismiss any active spirits.
  • Spirits may only be summoned once per encounter, so you cannot re-summon them after they die during a boss fight.
  • Spirits cannot be summoned while the effects of the Furlcalling Finger Remedy are active. Use the remedy again to cancel its effects.
  • Summoning spirits require either FP or HP depending on the summon.

Monument to Summon Spirits

  • Players must be near a Rebirth Monument, stone obelisks found at many Points of Interest and nearly every boss arena, to use Spirit Ashes.
  • A monument icon, depicted below, will appear on the left side of the screen when conditions are met:

Unlocking Spirit Ashes Upgrades

Roderika is the only NPC capable of upgrading Spirit Ashes. She offers her services after a short side quest:

  1. Talk to Roderika at the Stormhill Shack. [Map Link]
  2. Head to Stormveil Castle and collect Chrysalids' Memento. [Map Link]
  3. Return to Roderika and return the momento.
  4. Travel to the Roundtable Hold, and talk to her and to Blacksmith Hewg several times until you exhaust their dialogue options.
  5. Reload the area by leaving or other means.
  6. Roderika will now be sat across from Blacksmith Hewg and is able to upgrade your Spirit Ashes

Upgrading Spirit Ashes

Spirit Ash Upgrades universally increase the summons' Attack Power and Defenses.

There are two different types of Spirit Ashes, each with their own Upgrade Materials:

Giant Rat Ashes are unique in that enhancing the spirit ashes will increase their numbers.

Ranking of all Spirit Ashes.

This is a community-editable rank of Spirit Ashes, the objective is to help the community identify the best performing and worst performing Ashes based on their FP consumption and overall viability.

  • The initial rank on the page is calculated based on how much damage a fully upgraded Spirit does alone against a Draconic Tree Sentinel.
  • There are 6 Tiers and it goes as follows: D (<20), C (>= 20 <40), B (>= 40 <60), A (>=60 <80), +S (>=80), -S (Does something special)
  • If 2 Spirits have roughly the same amount of Damage, Summoning cost will be compared. Currently (February 2022) there are 64 Spirit Ashes.
  • Depending on Playstyle of the Player and Enemy values can change.
  • Spirit Ashes are situational. It is best to try out different ashes that you have and see which works when.

      So let me get this straight, Luthel does the most damage by a considerable margin and has good mobility with a teleport and has attacks to work at any range and is one of, if not the best for drawing attention and you have her at the lower end of S tier and have other summons that in your own descriptions acknowledge to be worse than luthel placed higher than her. What happened on this page?

        I just beat the game with my crucible knight build and then grabbed all ten great glovewort and all the glovewort ball bearings. Now I'm going through NG+ trying out a bunch of different spirit ashes.

        I never really liked NG+ cause it's just the same as the first time round but now I have all the items I want and all the bosses are incredibly easy. But now that I'm digging in a bit more into the spirit ashes - especially really good spirit ashes you only get late in the game like the Beastmen - I'm still getting to see a lot of items I want to find and use, so it's keeping my attention a lot better.

        All in all, they're an interesting thing to add to your build and I'm certainly enjoying playing around with them.

          An excellent way of reusing assets. The game has enough padding, might as well add some flavor to it. Word of warning, many spirit ashes are massively overhyped by the community. If anyone is reading this, try different ashes and see what works best for you, don't go wasting upgrade materials because some chump just happened to find the perfect summon for HIS build.

            Love how their AI is totally random, meaning they can start attacking something 2km away from you making them totally useless.

              I wish one of those ashes could make us able to change their costume,spells,weapons and even name. With some trade off to avoid it beign broken but i think it would be nice.

                Putrid corpse is decent C+ it attracts enemy aggro which is quite good for early game spellcasters and tanks like a champ at higher levels.

                  I'd like to see in the future more spirit ashes, a blood soaked albinauric, sprinhares (for emotional support at least I guess), the venom spitting snake (or the Cristal one), a flock of vampires, a single old woman vampire (that sings when she's not agro), all these wouldn't break the game and would be good companions.

                      Does the level of your spirit ash affect the matchmaking in Caelid colosseum? Or is it still just based on your rune level and weapon level and your spirit ash summon level doesn't matter?

                      • I used Deenh for one of my runs. Midgame it's still viable. Then it just becomes a one-time buff and dies quite soon...forgive me, then again, my major comparison point for summons is fighting Malenia. If a summon is good against Malenia then it's one of the best.

                          Some summons are great.
                          Some summons are good.
                          Some summons are decent.
                          Some summons might seem awful at first glance of use.

                          But they all have a job for a certain situation and suited build to assist, there's one for everybody, don't sleep on any of these whatsoever people, just use them properly and join the fray alongside instead of leaving them to it.

                            Better if you had a 'recommended summons against a boss' page instead of the relatively useless tier list. Dung man may well be S+ but there are still better options than him for some fights.

                              Make an easy strategy section for summons in your strategies for boss fights... I'm not insulting anyone who uses them. Just saying if the strategy for say a caster is to use a summons to distract then it's a useless strategy for a caster not trying to get carried.

                                  Did my first run of the game with ash summons on just about every boss and am now near the end of my first run not using any ash summons and gotta say it really makes the boss fights a different challenge but pushed me to get allot better at dodging and actually learning the movesets of bosses more carefully, for anyone looking level up their own playing skill level i strongly recommend doing a no ash summons run

                                    Would have been interesting to me if ash summons had various level of stat requirements to use (ie certain int faith arc ect.) so that specific summons would be part of the strategy of a certain build but just giving something this strong to every character for basically nothing seems like too much imo

                                        If you talk to Roderika and immediately after that travel outside limgrave and sit at a site of grace to unlock the round table she will be there and you can skip the step of her quest that requires finding the chrysalid. This is useful on a summon heavy/only play through or to set yourself up at the start of a new character

                                          I noticed the tuning price tags on spirit ashes are varied. Is the rune cost difference based on quality? Or just From's opinion on the ashes worth?

                                            Ghost glovewort is for anything that has an actual name, like Latenna and Tiche, and puppets. Everything else just uses grave glovewort.

                                                64 spirit ashes. Pretty sure that's close to, if not more than, the number of places / situations in which you can summon them. For all the times I've thought to myself "This would be nice if we had just this one extra thing" when looking at all the rest of the equipment / spells / items etc., this actually looks like From put too much attention into something for once.

                                                      I'm getting towards late game but there are a couple of things relating to spirit ashes I should have worked out much sooner, hopefully new players reading this long arsed comment will find something useful and not make the same mistakes I did and waste runes as well as both types of glovewart upgrading spirit ashes they end up not using based on what they read online, the spirit ash rankings in their respective Elden Ring wiki pages and comments only to work out too late that apart from two, they don't deserve their ranking places or live up to the hype around them. I should have seen through the utter bollocks being spouted by certain spirit ash summon's groupies in comment sections much sooner than I eventually did.

                                                      The lone wolves ashes can be safely upgraded and relied on to take you a surprising distance into later game areas. Both so-called elite summons Lhutel the headless and banished knight Oleg are available as early as Limgrave, one drops from the boss in Tombsward catacombs the other from the boss in Fringefolk hero's grave. Neither of them should be upgraded until they have been summoned and thoroughly tested against bosses and enemies to be sure you like what they do and they suit how you play, but even then I wouldn't recommend taking them past +6 depending how many ghost glovewart [7] you have and how much you like them. There are two spirits that do live up to the hype and will give much more back after being upgraded than any of the others.

                                                      Apart from not believing all the bollocks I was reading, the most important thing I should have been doing was testing out new spirit ashes as I was finding them in the same area and at the same level. I think that is the best way to get a feel for what new summons are about and if you like them enough to think they are worth upgrading, that isn't what I did. I was putting upgrades into summons I had found much earlier blindly based on what I was reading thinking they would make some of the harder bosses more manageable, they didn't and I never used those ashes again. My best example is the albinauric ashes found behind caria manor, I upgraded them to +5 as soon as I found them after reading comments on their wiki page, after summoning them once I think those were troll comments because they got wiped out faster than any summons I've used and it was by not overly powerful enemies.

                                                      The two summons I think definitely live up to the hype around them are Omen killer Rollo and the dung eater puppet they have both been outstanding for me and I'd have no hesitation recommending them to anyone. In fairness though I don't have black knife Tiche and I don't use black flame monk Amon, both have stellar reputaions but so does Oleg and I found him okay at best. The mimic tear is a monster summons if you have an optimised monster build, if not it's just another you in the boss room and there are definitely a handful of bosses where that isn't enough.

                                                        I have a question, I've got Omen killer Rollo at +9 and he's never needed support from me against any boss I've used him for, but the red albinaurics at the blood-filled lake hit hard and attack as a group they can really f**k your s**t up if you aren't paying attention. I thought the lords heal incantation would keep him in the fight longer, I've never used it before but the description for it says something like heals a great deal for the player and nearby allies, but this isn't how many casts it took to heal Rollo with half his health bar left, its how many flasks. I had to cast it over and over, with nearly 200 FP it took five or six flasks worth of casts to fully heal him I was only seeing a very small increase in his health bar each time it was cast. I can't see how this would be even remotely viable unless you dedicated six flasks worth of FP just to keep him alive and assuming whatever boss you were in the middle of fighting let you do it in the first place. The second tier erdtree blessing incantation isn't much better, it took significantly less casts to heal him but it was very slow. I was just standing there waiting for not far off ten minutes or at least it felt that long to heal his HP from half empty. Can anyone confirm this is normal and what I should expect to see if I try to keep my spirit summons alive with support incantations?

                                                          I have no clue what spirit tuning is doing without some stats to compare it to - it's hard to know what to upgrade when all you see is +1, +2 etc. Yeah it's "better" in a source: dude trust me way, but it sucks that there's no in-game data or external guide on what changes when you start sinking resources into these

                                                            Dung Eater puppet is so good for casters it's not even funny. He seems to almost always immediately draw aggro from a boss unless I'm up against a very mobile enemy like an ulcerated tree spirit since he starts with his "I EAT ****" battle cry, he's tanky enough that you really don't have to worry about him and cast spells at a distance. The few times the boss decides to look at me, he immediately redraws aggro on himself by just giant dad greatsword swinging his way through the boss, if he's too far away to hit the boss and redraw aggro he goes for the wraiths which will divert the boss's attention to him.

                                                            I seriously got him just because I thought it would be funny to have the poo poo man as a summon only to be blown away at how useful he is. Even Malenia got ganked by him greatsword spamming and me casting spells. Legit had her stuck in a corner and in a near constant stun lock for phase 1.

                                                              Has anyone noticed a reduction in the damage their go-to spirit summons are doing after the latest update? I'm especially interested in Lhutel and Oleg. There's nothing about spirit ashes getting nerfed on the wiki page for the patch notes, and I can't say for sure myself because I didn't get Oleg from the fringefolk grave dungeon until after 1.05. But if you read the comments on Oleg's wiki page you get the impression that he is a monster summons with some claiming he carried them through this or that boss fight, but when I summoned him at blood-filled lake near Mohgwyn's palace he was upgraded to +6 and his damage for a single hit was between 70 to 90 first time I summoned him and never went over 110 the second time.

                                                              I only started to think they had been nerfed to some extent when I summoned Lhutel also +6 in the same place. She did more damage than Oleg but not by very much and it was exactly the same when I summoned one after the other at impassable greatbridge and saw the same sort of damage from them there as well, neither hit for more than 130 and it doesn't seem right. I was using Lhutel to speed up the rune farm much earlier upgraded to +2 and +3 she wasn't having any trouble killing the Radahn soldiers or the mounted knight. Can anyone confirm this or is it my imagination and damage in the low hundreds is what those two elite summons have always done? I'm asking because I can do much more damage myself with incantations for the FP cost of summoning those two.

                                                                Greatshield Soldiers are my instant squad. They think I'm super funny, and they all like my music recommendations. They ask me for dating advice and never talk behind my back. Greatshield Soldiers are always there to hype me up, and support me at any contest or competitions I enter. I credit Greatshield Soldiers, at least in part, for making me the person I am.

                                                                  Taking the idea from finger maiden Therolina, I tested this out: You can heal your summons, at least with Lord's Heal. I tried it on banished knight Engvall, the greatshielder ashes, and the demi humans. Not that it would be a huge fight priority most of the time, but it's good to know.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

Would be cool if you could choose to free the puppets and restore their independence. Maybe even recruit them as allies or unlock some unique dialogue, quests and item rewards.

                                                                            • Having a Royal Revenant spirit summon would be cool. Those guys are a massive pain to deal with, and I'd like to have one on my side for a change. No doubt such a summon would absolutely shred and stance-break whatever is unlucky enough to become the target of its ire.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

You're making the boss harder and less predictable which makes it more difficult. You're making the game harder than it normally is.

Anyway, I just came here to complain that there's no giant ant spirit ash!
