One of the strongest Summons in Elden Ring is the Legendary Ashen Spirit, Black Knife Tiche Ashes. Those who’ve faced any of the Black Knife Assassins in the Lands Between will undoubtedly know how challenging to defeat these bosses can be. Likewise, Black Knife Tiche utilizes the abilities of her kind to become an excellent ally for Tarnished in combat. Not only is she incredibly swift and agile, but her Black Knife Dagger’s art, Blade of Death, grants her the skill to temporarily reduce the maximum HP of enemies while gradually cutting away their current health pool. However, acquiring Black Knife Tiche Ashes in Elden Ring requires much effort.
How To Unlock Black Knife Tiche Ashes In Elden Ring
Black Knife Tiche Ashes is acquired by defeating the Alecto, the Black Knife Ringleader of the Ringleader’s Evergaol. This location can be found atop the plateau accessed via the Deep Ainsel Well. Yet, this lift is only unlocked once Tarnished have reached the end of Ranni’s questline.
Ranni’s questline can only be started once Elden Ring players have defeated General Radahn, opening the cavernous entrance to Nokron, Eternal City. This region is where Tarnished must search for the Fingerslayer Blade, a quest item needed to progress the Lunar Princess’s story. Afterward, they will need to use the Sending Gate in Renna’s Rise to enter the upper portion of Ainsel River. After finding Miniature Ranni and fulfilling her request, adventurers must cross the Lake of Rot to reach Astel, Naturalborn of the Void. Once Astel has been defeated, players can enter the Deep Ainsel Well by having the Dark Moon Ring in their inventory, acquired from the Raya Lucaria Grand Library.
Once Tarnished have reached the Moonlight Altar, they must ride west to the northwestern corner of the area, where the Ringleader’s Evergaol can be found. After beating Alecto in a duel, Elden Ring players will be rewarded with the Black Knife Tiche Ashes Summon.
Elden Ring is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
