elden ringOne of the standout new features of is Ghost Ashes, which lets you summon spooky monsters to fight by your side. But now one elden ring Modder known as King Bore Haha has taken the concept to a new extreme.
As mentioned, Ghost Ashes is a summon that you can invoke, but only at very specific moments in combat. To use them you need to find them Ghost calls bell, make sure you have enough focus points and wait for a tombstone-like icon to appear on the screen. Spirit Ash summons are a real boon in tough boss encounters, often serving as the deciding factor between surviving a fight and respawning at the nearest point of mercy. I use them all the time, and they’ve saved my ass more than once.
On Twitter, King Bore Haha, a modder working on one Dark Souls called overhaul shadow of darkness, tweeted a clip of himself apparently summoning a ghost jellyfish, one of the earliest ghost ashes found in Stormhill. Except that what appeared wasn’t a jellyfish, but something far more terrifying: one of those terrifying, thresher-like chariots that one-shot you in dungeons. And it certainly hits the knights he directs it at.
“This ghost ash is insanely broken,” King Bore wrote alongside the video. “I have no idea what [FromSoft] thought.”
The modder later returned to the crime scene with an even more ridiculous summons: a walking mausoleum. The gigantic four-legged fortress’ leap is a huge area-of-effect attack, so King Bore took inevitable damage. Still, he fared far better than his permanently crushed enemies.
It’s worth remembering that these Ghost Ashes aren’t real, so don’t bother searching The Lands Between for them. It’s just a modder having fun.
King Bore tells kotaku that the chariot and mausoleum summons were “proofs of concept” for other ideas he’s working on, and that it’s actually not hard to implement a mod, like swapping spirit ashes. It is difficult to find out exactly which data needs to be changed and where.
“The Spirit Ash System (referred to internally as the very cute ‘Buddy’ [System]’) was implemented in parameters, which are essentially a set of spreadsheets containing game data,” King Bore said. “FromSoft uses Microsoft Excel to implement this data. I swear to god it’s true. Anyway, parameters are a great system for modding, they are extremely accessible and easy to change thanks to the hard work of the toolmakers and format guys who are all smarter and cooler than me. With their hard work already done, all I have to do is figure out how these systems work and change values to do what I want.”
Very humble words for a man who can summon a walking mausoleum.
As you may have noticed elden ring Players do all sorts of weird things in the game. Some people are become deadly Hedgehog thanks to a specific weapon skill, while others are kill the turtle pope, because why not? Then you have it A select few who willingly blow themselves up just to get easy PvP kills. This game is wild and that’s what I’m here for.
