Developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment, Elden Ring is an open-world game where players take on the role of the Tarnished, a character who is set to restore the Elden Ring. In this journey, gamers have to explore the world, complete a lot of quests, and defeat many enemies and bosses.
To help players in tough fights, the game allows players to call spirits to fight with them against mighty enemies. But that’s not possible without the spirit ashes. Among these spirit ashes, the Rotten Stray Ash is a preferred choice for many players. This ash is used to distract the enemy, allowing players to launch some attacks and deal quick damage. Read the following guide to learn how to get and use Rotten Stray Ashes in the Elden Ring.
How to Get Rotten Stray Ashes in Elden Ring
The Rotten Stray Ash is a handy spirit summoning ash that has the ability to turn the tide of any battle. It stands out because it’s the only spirit ash that can give powerful enemies Scarlet Rot. As soon as the hideous dog bites the opponent, they start to rot.
As far as the location of the Rotten Stray ash is concerned, it can be found in Caelid. Luckily, players can access Caelid in the early hours of the game. After exiting the Sellia Tunnel trap, players will need to head to the Sellia Under-Stair Site of Grace in Caelid and go North towards the ruins from there on. After a while, they will see a destroyed building. Enter inside this building to find the corpse of a rotting dog. This very corpse will have the Rotten Stray Ashes. Upon collecting it, it will be added to the inventory.
How to Use Rotten Stray Ashes in Elden Ring
The FP cost for the Rotten Stray Ashes is 35. Once players have that, they can equip the Rotten Stray Ashes from their inventory to summon the stray dog spirit in hours of need.
It’s worth noting that Rotten Stray Ash is particularly effective against early-game bosses like Margit, the Fell Omen. However, as bosses develop resistance to Scarlet Rot later in the game, the ash becomes less effective. Therefore, it would be a good idea to use it in early-game fights to get the most out of these ashes.
