Elden Ring: How To Use Spirit Ashes And Summon Spirits

Developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco, Elden Ring is easily one of the most anticipated video game releases of the year. It features the same satisfaction combat fans have come to expect from From Software, as well as a story and lore co-written with George RR Martin, best known for writing the A Song of Ice and Fire book series. This can be quite a challenging game, but you can make things a little easier for yourself by making use of various NPC summons. Here’s how to use Spirit Ashes and summon Spirits in Elden Ring.

While there are the traditional NPC summons that you can use like in previous Soulsborne games, Elden Ring also introduces Spirit Ashes, which are reusable items that you can put into slots in your inventory. By using them, you can summon spirits to aid you in battle.

Use spirit ashes in Elden Ring

  • First of all, you need the spirit call bell.You can get this as a gift from Renna the Witch, who appears in Elleh’s Church’s Place of Grace after meeting Melina and gaining the ability to level up.
  • After that, you need a Spirit Ash.There are quite a few Spirit Ashes to collect in the Elden Ring, though you’ll have to search for them. Godrick’s soldiers, for example, can be found in the jellyfish graveyard in Limgrave, near Castle Stormveil, while jellyfish can be obtained from Roderika.
  • Equip the Spirit Ash by placing it in one of your inventory slots.
  • Look for the little purple icon that appears on the left side of the screen whenever you enter a summoning area.You will not be able to summon Spirit Ashes anywhere in The Lands Between. The summon is usually only available in boss arenas or in areas where you are forced to deal with a particular challenging enemy ambush.
  • Select Ash by pressing your d-pad to scroll to him, then press the square button or X to use it.This will consume FP and summon the Spirit to your side. Note that if you leave the summoning area, they will disappear.


You can only summon one type of spirit at a time, and you can use the ashes again to fire them if you wish. They can also be further upgraded with Grave Gloveworts, though you’ll need to find the Chrysalis Memento first and complete the Roderika quest before Spirit Tuning becomes available.
