With Elden Ring finally here players have been anxiously waiting to see the new additions to the game's combat and how they can tackle enemies in The Lands Between.
In this guide, we're going to take you through how to summon spirits in Elden Ring because - let's face it - you're going to need all the help you can get.
Where to find the Spirit Calling Bell
First things first, before you go summoning spirits, you'll need the Spirit Calling Bell. To get it, you'll need some help from several NPCs early on.
Firstly, you'll need to speak with Melina at the Site of Grace near the Gatefront Ruins There she'll give you the ability to summon Torrent, your spectral steed and loyal companion.
Afterwards, you'll need to head back to the Church of Elleh, the place where you first meet the merchant, Kale. Pass the time until nightfall and eventually, after a death or two, a blowing blue witch named Renna.
Once you tell her that you're able to ride Torrent, she'll give you two items. The Spirit Calling Bell and the Lone Wolf Ashes, before disappearing. With those in your inventory, you're well on your way to summoning spirits... but let's show you just how to do it.
How to Summon Spirits
With the Spirit Calling Bell equipped, all you need to do is select it and use the square button to summon the spirit you have equipped at that time.
However, it does come with a caveat or two. Firstly, you'll need plenty of Spirit Ashes to summon a wide array of spirits. From a horde of NPCs or the pack of wolves that Renna gave you, there are plenty to be found around the world, including in chests and as rewards for beating mini-bosses.
Also, you can only summon spirits when close to a Rebirth Monument, small stones that are dotted about the land, and in Boss Arenas. If you don't spot them at first, just check your HUD for a small glowing gravestone. That's the sign that you can summon spirits to aid your cause.
