Elden Ring Ashes of War Locations Guide

Elden Ring consists of unique items known as Ashes of War. These items can be used for adding newer skills to your selected weapon, making it more reliable during a battle. In this guide, we’ll be explaining What are Ashes of War and How to use them in Elden Ring.

What Are Ashes of War in Elden Ring

Ashes of War are special items that help replace your current weapon skills and Affinities with a newer set. This way, you’ll boost your weapon’s overall performance, which in turn assists you during tough battles.

However, do note that not every weapon can work with all particular equipment.

How to Use Ashes of War in Elden Ring

Before using the Ashes of War, there are a few requirements to be added to your inventory. Requirements such as Ashes, Whetstone Knife, and a site of grace.

Ashes are mostly found on treasure goblins/dung beetles. As for the Whetstone Knife, visit the Gatefront ruins underground to add them to your inventory.

Once your inventory is full with the required material for the unique item, simply sit by the site of grace and select the Ashes of War menu.

Inside the menu, you’ll get multiple options to select skills to your weapon. As mentioned before, not all weapons can work with the Ash of War. However, that doesn’t take away the use of this item for any other weapons.

Once you’ve selected a weapon, further select an Ash of War for it. Every Ash comes with a unique affinity that increases the stat of that weapon. Additionally, you can select a skill that can be used for the armament you’re using.

Note that once you’ve selected an Ash of War for your weapon, you can’t use it for any other weapon as it’s now exclusive to that particular weapon you selected. However, you can reuse it by unequipping the item then re-equipping it for another weapon of your choice.

Well, there’s an alternate for this as well. Simply visit a Blacksmith in the Roundtable Hold, who then gives you access to the same Ash of War for another weapon. But that’s later on in the game, before the Margit fight.

Lastly, confirm your choice and use the Ash of War with your best weapons.

Elden Ring Ashes of War Scaling Explained

Attribute scaling is one of the easiest methods of improving your weapon or armor stats. If you love experimentation, you can build a great weapon for yourself using the ashes of war and other collectibles.

For the scaling of your attributes, go to Site of Grace and then open the dialog box of Ashes of War. You have to understand that each ash of war can be only used on specific weapons.

On opening the ashes of war dialog you will see each of your weapons and their respective skills and stats. Now you can apply ashes of war on the weapon of your choice.

Firstly, use every Ash of War on your selected weapon and check which one gives you the best build. Once you are done with checking and have selected your Ash of War, a new Affinity Granted Menu will open.

In this menu, many different affinities will appear and each will change the Grade in the Attribute Scaling for your weapon. These affinities can also change other stats as well.

Different ashes of war provide different abilities to your weapon. So, make sure to build your weapon with the best skills.

How to Reuse Ashes of War Elden Ring

Once you’ve selected a weapon, select an Ash of War for it. Every Ash comes with a unique affinity that increases a specific stat of that weapon. Additionally, you can select a skill that can be used for the armament you’re using.

Note that once you’ve selected an Ash of War for your weapon, you can’t use it for any other weapon as it’s now exclusive to that particular weapon you selected. However, you can reuse it by unequipping the item and then re-equipping it for another weapon of your choice.

Well, there’s an alternate for this as well. Simply visit a Blacksmith in the Roundtable Hold, who then gives you access to the same Ash of War for another weapon. But that’s later on in the game, before the Margit fight.

How to Duplicate Ash of War Elden Ring

Any ash of war can only be used on a single weapon. To use it on another weapon, you have to dismantle it from the first weapon.

There is, however, another method where you can duplicate the ash of war you want. To do this, you should have the lost ashes of war. If you have these, head to the Blacksmith and trade these lost ashes of war for your desired ash of war.
