Where to find Golden Vow Ash of War in Elden Ring

Golden Halberd, forged with gold and wielded by the tree sentinels, has the default skill of Golden Vow. It is dropped by defeating the Tree Sentinel just outside The First Step grace of site, in Limgrave, where you start out in Elden Ring.

To get to the Tree Sentinel location, you need to head outside the Church of Elleh. The boss fight will be hard since you just started your journey. If you manage to dodge its poison attacks and ultimately defeat him, you will get Ash of War: Golden Vow along with Golden Halberd in Elden Ring.

If you are unable to defeat the Tree Sentinel, there is another way to get the Golden Vow Ash of War. You can get the skill by collecting the Ash from Godrick Knight in Limgrave.

You must first head to the northern parts of Limgrave. There are plenty of locations here to find Ashes of War. Limgrave has over 20 of these ashes, and most of them are obtained from defeating different enemies and bosses.

To find Godrick Knight, you need to head towards the southwest of Deathtouched Catacombs located in Limgrave region. Once there, you need to look for Limgrave Colosseum and head to the top of the hill that is on the east side.

The location of the Godrick Knight in Limgrave is provided in the map below.

After reaching there, players will find a lonely, armored knight mounted on a horse with a huge shield on his back on top of the cliff. Players will need to engage and defeat him. However, the fight will not be overly challenging, but if you are having a hard time, you can always call upon your reliable Torrent to help you out in the fight.

Once you have defeated the knight, you can claim the Golden Vow skill.

How to use Golden Vow Ash of War in Elden Ring

You can use the Ash of War by placing it into a secondary weapon that you barely use. Before engaging in a fight, just equip the weapon and use the skill which will grant buffs, and then again equip your primary weapon.

You can stack the buff with other similar buffs granting the same damage and defense properties. This will increase your damage significantly and also provide you with bonus defense.
