Top five Ashes of War in Elden Ring
We will cut straight to the chase and present to you our top five of the best Ashes of War in Elden Ring:
The Ash of War: Carian Greatsword creates a wrap around your weapons made of pure magic creating a gigantic sword to bash your opponent with it.
The Ash of War: Storm Blade creates a whirlwind every time you slash with your sword that pushes and damages enemies in the process.
The Ash of War: Bloody Slash creates a hefty slice with blood that takes some mana and health from you but it will take a bigger toll on your opponents even one-downing weaker enemies.
The Ash of War: Gravitas is another fan favourite among the community because it creates a pulsing explosion when you spike your sword into the ground severely damaging nearby enemies and pulling the survivors closer to you for a final blow.
The Ash of War: Glintblade Phalanx is probably the most searched ash in Elden Ring right now as it creates five spiritual daggers that hover around you and it can attack enemies even from your blindspots.
