Elden Ring: How to Upgrade Spirit Ashes

Upgrading Spirit Ashes

You can upgrade your Ashes by talking to Roderika at the Roundtable Hold. However, if you are a newer player, you will notice that she cannot be found at this location initially. Since she is the only person who can upgrade your Spirit Ashes in the game, you want to bring her to the Hold.

While making your way to Stromveil – the first dungeon of the game, go to the Stormhill Shack. Here, you will find Roderika sitting in a corner. Talk to her and exhaust her dialogue to progress her quest. You can either choose to find the Chrysalid’s Memento and bring it to her or defeat Godrick, The Grafted.

Either way, she will return to the Roundtable Hold where you have to do a few more steps before she is willing to upgrade your Ashes.

At the Hold, speak to Roderika and exhaust her dialogue. Then, head over to the blacksmith – Master Hewg – and speak to him about Roderika. Return to Roderika and tell her what Master Hewg told you. After that, go back to Master Hewg again and tell him to watch over Roderika.

Finally, fast-travel to the Roundtable Hold again and you will notice that Roderika is no longer in the main hall. Instead, she is near Master Hewg and you can now talk to her.

Talking to Roderika

Now, talk to Roderika to upgrade your Spirit Ashes. Like armaments, you will need a special item called Gloveworts to upgrade these Ashes. When you talk to Roderika, select the Spirit Tuning option and choose the Ashes that you want to upgrade.

Make sure that you have tons of Gloveworts and Runes so that you can improve your summons without any issues. While you might not notice an immediate improvement immediately, having powerful summons later in the game will allow you to have a better time.

Otherwise, the summons will have low HP and damage which will not be useful against late-game bosses.


That’s everything you need to know about how to upgrade Spirit Ashes in Elden Ring. Spirt Ashes are strong summons that you can use to gain an advantage while fighting bosses. They can make the game easier and more fun despite what some players claim.
