Elden Ring is one of the hardest games that was released in 2022. The fact of the matter is that Elden Ring was developed by FromSoftware, a game company that is notorious for making difficult games like Dark Souls. But Elden Ring is a bit different than the other FromSoftware games.

Elden Ring has a lot of different playstyles that you can use to make the game easier. For example, players can use magic in the game and they should have a much easier time taking down the various enemies that are in the game. One of the ways to make the game easier is by using summons. Here, we are going to teach you how to make your summons in Elden Ring stronger.

In Elden Ring, your summons is called Spirit Ash. To make a Spirit Ash stronger, you will need to get Roderika to the Roundtable Hold. You will first meet Roderika by the Stormveil Castle at the Stormhill Shack. It is on the way to Sormveil Castle, so it is very hard to miss her. You will need to get her Chrysalids' Momento from a pile of dead bodies after the Margit boss fight.

Once you get the momento, return it to her and she will head to the Roundtable Hold. Now you can get started upgrading your summons in Elden Ring. To upgrade your summons, you will need to give Roderika either a Ghost Glovewort or a Grave Glovewort. The kind of Glovewort will depend on which summon you wish to upgrade and how much they are already upgraded. An example is that a Spirit Ash upgraded by a Ghost Glovewort [1] will need to be upgraded by a Glave Glovewort [2] next.

Is It Worth Upgrading My Summons In Elden Ring?

It is definitely worth upgrading your summons in Elden Ring. Upgrading your Spirit Ash gives you a lot of different benefits during your fights. For example, let us say you are having trouble fighting a boss in the game. When you summon your Spirit Ash, that is another target for the boss to attack, taking the heat off of yourself.

But if your Spirit Ash is unupgraded, they will die quickly. That is why you need to power up your summons in Elden Ring. Powering them up will give them a bigger HP pool which means that is more time for them to distract the boss so you can take them down. So keep your eyes out for Ghost Glovewort and Grave Glovewort to upgrade your summons in Elden Ring.
