How To Duplicate Ashes Of War In Elden Ring

In Elden Ring, you will eventually want to duplicate an Ash of War to apply on different weapons for your characters.

Ashes of War are upgrades you apply to weapons to give them different skills and buffs in Elden Ring. Though the ashes have unlimited use, it can only be applied to a single weapon. Hence, if you want the same Ash of War for two different weapons, you need to know how to duplicate them using Lost Ashes of War.

These ashes can be found scattered throughout the game. You can either purchase them from Isolated Merchants or get them from corpses. This Elden Ring guide will tell you exactly where to find them and how to use them to duplicate the ashes of war.

After acquiring the Lost Ashes of War, take them to the Smithing Master Hewg at the Roundtable Hold and choose the “Ash of War duplication” option. Before heading here, you should possess the Ash of War item you want to duplicate, which you will find during your exploration. Once you have duplicated the ashes, upgrade any weapon of choice and buff its effects.

Remember that you can only duplicate Ashes of War, which you already have. Hence, if you are interested in duping a specific Ash of War in Elden Ring, you must get it first.
