The Mimic Tear Spirit Ashes are undoubtedly one of the strongest and most overpowered NPC summon in Elden Ring. It held on to its notoriety even after being nerfed by the developers. With this summons, you essentially get a doppelganger alongside whom you can easily use against bosses. This article focuses on the shortest way to get the mimic tear spirit ashes. Be advised that you will require a Stonesword Key for this journey.
Obtain Spirit Tuning
First things first, in order to obtain and use a summon, you have to unlock spirit tuning. You can do this by collecting the Spirit Calling Bell and talking to Roderika. Progress with her questline, and you will unlock Spirit Tuning. Doing her questline will also earn you the Spirit Jellyfish Ashes, which you can use for your fights on the journey to obtain the ultimate Spirit Ashes.
Defeat Starscourge Radahn
This is one of the tricky bits. Starscourge Radahn is one of the trickier bosses in Elden Ring. Get well prepared while facing this boss. You could check our guide to defeating him for more information. After defeating him, you will unlock the Eternal City of Nokron.
Defeat Your Clone
Head towards Nokron through West Limgrave. This will also be a crucial step in Ranni’s questline, which we also recommend that you finish. In order to progress through this area, you will have to go through a boss fight where you will have to defeat a clone of yourself. Afterward, go to the Ancestral Woods Site of Grace and move southwest. While on your path, you will notice a chapel. Enter this chapel through a window.
As we have mentioned beforehand, this is the part where you will require the Stonesword Key. You will have to use the key on the Imp Statue. The only thing standing between you and that Spirit Ashes is a few enemies. Defeat them and open the chest. Congratulations, you have obtained the Mimic Tear Spirit Ashes.
Frequently Asked Questions
This segment of the article focuses on common questions related to the Mimic Tear Spirit Ashes and other relevant topics. We hope that it answers most of your questions.
Does Summoning a Mimic Tear cost HP?
In short, the answer is yes. Rather than consuming FP like most Spirit Ashes, Mimic Tear Spirit Ashes requires HP. But this is a worthwhile trade-off considering how amazing this summon is.
What are the best Spirit Ashes in Elden Ring?
The mimic tear is likely the best spirit ash in Elden Ring. Especially with a bleed build. You can double your damage output easily and create a distraction for you to be able to do loads of damage to a boss.
To put it in perspective, my mimic tear (when I was using a bleed build) could almost solo Malenia. She’s considered one of the hardest bosses in the entire souls-like universe, so I can safely say Mimic tear is one of, if not actually, the best spirit ash.
