Spirit Ashes are summonable spirit companions that help players take on difficult enemies throughout The Lands Between. You’ll collect different ones as you progress through the game, including beasts, warriors, and more.

They’re all helpful in different situations. However, one stands head and shoulders above the rest in terms of power and versatility — Mimic Tear Spirit Ashes, which lets you summon a spirit clone of character.

It’s not the easiest one to find, and it has some hefty requirements that need to be completed beforehand, but it’s worth the time and effort. Let’s take a look at what you’ll need to do and where to find it.

Finding the Mimic Tear Spirit Ashes in Elden Ring is no easy task. First, you’ll need to complete a challenging pre-requisite before you can find them — defeating Starscourge Radahn, the main boss of Redmane Castle in Caelid.

Once you’ve done that, head to the Fort Haight West Site of Grace and make your way through the crater until you stumble upon Nokron, Eternal City. Jump from rooftop to rooftop until you reach the main city.

Eventually, you’ll come across a fog wall. You’ll need to enter it and fight a boss version of yourself to progress further in your quest to find the Mimic Tear Spirit Ashes. Do so and defeat the boss, which will unlock a Site of Grace.

After that, jump on your mount and dash across the bridge, turning left at the end and follow the edge of the cliff. This will lead you to the Ancestral Woods Site of Grace. Then, jump onto a nearby roof and follow the path through the Night’s Sacred Ground.

If you follow these instructions, you’ll come across a chapel with a fog wall inside. Use a Stonesword Key to pass through it and defeat the enemy behind it to find a chest. Open it up and retrieve the Mimic Tear Spirit Ashes.

That’s everything you need to know to find the Mimic Tear Spirit Ashes in Elden Ring. Even with Elden Ring update 1.03 nerfing this particular Spirit Ash, it’s still worth tracking down for multiple reasons. Not only is a great bait target to attract attention away from you, but by mirroring your attacks, it’s a great way to double-up on damage output in hopes of staggering bigger foes.

With faster weapons like daggers or twinblades, using the Mimic Tear will still have you staggering enemies for critical hits with ease.

They’ll be a massive help throughout your journey, all the way through into the late game, so they’re definitely worth grabbing when you can.
