Elden Ring is, of course, an extremely difficult game, as one might expect from the developers, FromSoftware. No matter which of the 10 unique classes you pick to start out with, it's not going to be easy to beat many of the Land Between's foes. To get an advantage in some combat situations, players will need an all-important Spirit Calling Bell item which an NPC called Renna provides, but there are some caveats.
In this guide, we share step-by-step instructions to get the Spirit Calling Bell and thereby unlock the ability to summon spirits to aid Tarnished on their quest, as well as the exact location of Renna.
How to get Spirit Calling Bell in Elden Ring
Spirit summons is a new mechanic in Elden Ring which allows players to use Spirit Ashes to call upon unique allies.
There are plenty of Spirit Ashes to find but before players can use them, they will need to get a Spirit Calling Bell. Thankfully, players can get this unique item early on in the game, likely in the first four to five hours.
Check out the steps below to get the Spirit Calling bell in Elden Ring.
- First up, you will need to unlock your horse by following our guide.
- After you've acquired the trusty steed, head back to the Church of Elleh Site of Grace and speak to Renna, a new, integral NPC.
- She will call the player over to her location and ask if you can summon Torrent (your horse).
- Say yes and she will provide you with both the Spirit Calling Bell and Lone Wolf Ashes, which belonged to Torrent's previous owner.
If you missed this part and have progressed further into Elden Ring, you can get the Spirit Calling Bell at the Roundtable Hold from Twin Maiden Husks.
Elden Ring Renna NPC location and details
Some players might be wondering exactly where Renna is located in Elden Ring, despite us mentioning she is at the Church of Elleh.
The map above showcases Renna's exact location in Elden Ring. There is a caveat, however, as some players are reporting Renna is missing or not spawning. We suggest that to find Renna at her spawn location, use the nearby Site of Grace to "pass time" until it is nighttime.
So there you have it, the exact location and details you need to know to find Renna, who will provide players with both the Spirit Calling Bell and Lone Wolf Ashes in the first area of Elden Ring.
