How to use Spirit Ashes in Combat – Spirit Ashes can only be summoned in certain locations, and will disappear under two conditions
If you move out of the Spirit Calling range (more information on how to identify that below). If you vanquish the boss of the area.
To know whether or not you’re in a location that allows for Spirit Summons, you will see a white gravestone icon in the bottom left corner of your HUD. If you are fighting a field boss and move out of Spirit Summons range, the icon in the corner will begin to flash.
The further you move out of these boundaries, the quicker it will flash; when it disappears, your Spirit will also have dissipated. It’s worth keeping an eye on this, as you will need to rest at a Site of Grace to re-summon if you move too out of range. To summon these Spirits, you will need to select them from your inventory to activate.
Your character will automatically ring the Spirit Calling Bell (no need to equip it) and your Spirit will come to your aid. Note that many require a certain amount of FP, with more powerful/legendary Spirits requiring greater resources to cast. We recommend equipping your preferred Spirit Ashes in your quick bar for ease of access; many dungeon boss battles offer a limited amount of time to summon before combat engages, having quick access to call your allies for help is wise.
Advertisement NOTE: Only one type of Spirit Ashes may be summoned at a time, and these cannot be used during multiplayer. Think strategically about when you want to co-op versus use Spirit Ashes; playing multiplayer increases the HP and damage output of bosses while Spirit Ashes do not. Knowing which Spirit you want to summon for an upcoming battle can depend heavily on what you need most for the fight.
Sometimes they serve best as distractions for a boss, while other times you’ll want a powerful Spirit to support you with ranged fire or to simply tank enemy hits. We recommend trying out several different types to figure out which fit your playstyle best.

What do you need to be able to summon in Elden Ring?
How to summon in Elden Ring with Spirit Ashes – (Image credit: FromSoftware) To summon in Elden Ring via Ash Spirits – the most common way of doing it – players need to progress to the point where they’ve unlocked the horse, Torrent. If you haven’t done it yet, our guide on how to get the Elden Ring horse will sort you out.
Once you do, head back to the Church of Elleh, the little ruin past the Tree Sentinel where Kalé the merchant is waiting. There’ll be a new NPC there now, a witchy-looking character called Renna. Talk to her, and she’ll give you the Spirit Calling Bell and the Lone Wolf Ashes. The Spirit Calling Bell doesn’t have to be equipped, it’s just enough to have it in your inventory.
However, if you use the Lone Wolf Ashes at any point, either through your inventory or by equipping them to the quick-select menu with your Flasks, you’ll summon three friendly wolves that will attack nearby enemies. As you explore the game, you’ll find other kinds of Spirit Ashes that can summon different NPCs.
- You can only summon Elden Ring Spirits with Ashes when close to a Rebirth Monument, a little square statue about waist-high. You’ll know when you’re in range of one, because of the white symbol of a tablet on the left side of the screen. Rebirth Monuments tend to be fairly common, covering most major areas and practically every boss fight arena.
- Using Spirit Ashes costs FP. The amount varies significantly depending on the Ash themselves, with more powerful NPCs requiring more FP. Some are so expensive that you won’t be able to summon them without significantly levelling up the Mind Attribute first.
- Elden Ring Spirits can be killed in combat! They’re no more immortal than you are, with the exception of Skeletal variants, who can self-resurrect if not damaged while downed.
- Players can only have one kind of Ash Spirit triggered at a time. If you have the Wolves running about, you won’t be able to bring out an Ash Spirit Sorcerer until they’re either dead or recalled.
How do I summon someone to my game Elden?
To summon players into your Elden Ring game, proceed to the summoning pool found within dungeons and bosses in the world. Look for the Martyr Effigies and once you see them, use the Small Golden Effigy to send your summon sign into the pool.

Where do I get summoning bell?
How to find the Spirit Calling Bell in Elden Ring – Your search for the Spirit Calling Bell begins at the Church of Elleh’s Site of Grace. Head to the Stranded Graveyard, and go north as soon as you make it to the main world. Move east on the main path to travel to the Gatefront Ruins. There’s a Site of Grace here at both sides of the ruins.
- Rest your weary bones at either Site of Grace and the mysterious young lady Melina in her flowing black robe will materialize.
- Melina has an offering for you: your spectral steed, Torrent.
- Once you’ve acquired this horse, arguably the most nimble in the game, be sure to rest until nightfall at the Site of Grace near Melina.
Return to the Church of Elleh, and speak to the witch named Renna there. When you speak to her, she’ll ask you if you can summon Torrent. Reply “yes” to her inquiry. When you’ve done so, she will gift you with the Spirit Calling Bell as well as the Lone Wolf Ashes. It’s important that you visit Renna early on in your quest to become Elden Lord. At some pint, she will cease to wait around for you at the Church of Elleh. If this happens, you aren’t completely out of luck. You’ll have to purchase the Spirit Calling Bell later at Roundtable Hold from the Twin Husks merchant.

Where can I get a summon finger?
Creating Summon Signs and Martyr Effigies – If you don’t want to ask another player for assistance but would rather be the summoned help, you don’t need to check nearby Summon Signs or Martyr Effigies. Instead, you create your own, and players can interact with them and call you.
In order to plop down a Summon Sign, you need a Tarnished’s Furled Finger. This item is found on a corpse at the Stranded Graveyard. Look for a Site of Grace near the lift to The First Step. Just use the Furled Finger, and you will spawn a Summon Sign other players can use. Looting the aforementioned corpse also nets you the Finger Severer, which lets you de-summon allies and duelists (but not invaders), as well as un-summon yourself while another player acts as the host.
