Where to find Ash of War: Bloodhound’s Step in Elden Ring

First, head over to Lenne’s Rise, a tower located in the northern peninsula of Caelid. Then, rest at the Site of Grace and let time pass until nighttime.

Next, head north and approach the bridge until you see an ominous-looking boss called the Night Cavalry. You’ll need to take him down.

The Night Cavalry is quick and hits like a truck. So, we recommend you fight while riding your horse to make things easier.

Landing successive blows will cause him to fall off his horse, leaving him vulnerable to free attacks for a brief moment.

Once defeated, he’ll drop the Bloodhound’s Step Ashes of War — a handsome reward for your efforts.
