5 ELDEN RING SIMONS TO REPLACE MIMIC TEAR
The Mimic Tear provides the greatest blessings of all spirit ashes. There are many possibilities for the ashes to create a perfect copy of the player’s character. You can use it to mirror your fighting style or equip a weapon before attacking from two angles. It can win fights almost by itself when fully upgraded. This is why summoning spirits in Elden Ring will likely be the default choice for players.
To the dismay and disappointment of players, FromSoftware has nerfed the Mimic Tear with a patch. Players are now looking for new companions, even though the Mimic Tear is still the most powerful hitter. Here’s a guide to 5 Elden Ringsummons that can replace the Mimic Tear.

LAUREL THE HEADLESS
This particular ally was my main spectral companion before the Mimic Tear. The hotel has many advantages, including ease of acquisition. Its versatility will make it useful in combat. First, Lhutel has a shield that makes it more difficult to hit than others. Lhutel’s ability to teleport during action further enhances its defensive skills. It will occasionally blink out of existence to increase its chances of avoiding incoming damage. Thanks to its tank-like appearance, you get a durable summon that lasts a long time.
Laurel is also a versatile fighter. This Elden Ringsummon is equipped with both melee and long-range weapons. Her lance can cause instant death and can be used to launch ranged attacks at mobile enemies. This legendary item status makes it very expensive to summon. To summon, players must invest 104 FP.
Acquisition Head to the Tombsward Catacombs on the Weeping Peninsula. It is located south of the Church of Pilgrimage. To obtain the ashes, you must win a relatively easy boss battle against a Cemetery Shade.
It isn’t easy to eliminate because of its random teleporting.
This summon comes with a small pack. Three independent health meters will be available to players who use the ashes. These ashes are very useful because they are one of the essential items you can get right away. They are not very strong in defense, but they can be aggressive. They will attack each other separately, so bosses will have plenty of options when choosing a target. They can be used as distractions, giving you more time to plan your attacks. Their weakness is their weak defense. A broad attack or broad attack could wipe them out in one.
The wolves are fast and tend to circle their prey, sometimes jumping back. This means that at least one of them will avoid any moves by the boss. Their frequent attacks also suggest that they can do a lot of damage overall. They are also very affordable to summon at only 55 FP. This makes them a great ally. The wolves are also one of the first Elden Ring summonses. They can be used quickly and leveled up as players progress.
Acquisition – The ashes are easy to obtain once you can summon Torrent from Melina. Return to Limgrave’s Church of Elleh, located just north of the starting location and Tree Sentinel. Renna should be found in ruins. However, you may need to stop at the site where grace is first. Talk to Renna, and she will give the Lone Wolf Ashes.
Sometimes, the best decision is right in front of you.
BLACKFLAME MONK AMON
Blackflame Monk Amon, another summon with multiple fighting styles, is a strong ally. Amon can use a combination of a deadly sword attack and black flame incantations. They also have many uses in terms of Amon’s faith abilities. The Black Flame incantation allows Amon to fire a fireball at one target from a far distance. The Scouring Black Flame has a shorter range, but it is more effective for multiple targets. His battle style has one drawback: his incantations can be quickly interrupted. He is best used as ranged support while you distract the boss.
Amon, however, is also one of the Elden Ring summonses that has melee abilities. The monk can wield a sword and stand his ground close up. He is also quite powerful, significantly when fully upgraded. Recent online footage showed him fighting Godrick the Grafted solo. His powerful nature is also why he’s such a late-game summon. Players who wish to use him won’t be able to do so until quite some time. He’s also very expensive to demand, which requires at least 115 FP.
Acquisition Amon’s ashes can be found in the Hidden Path to Haligtree. After obtaining both halves of a Haligtree Secret Medallion, you can access this catacomb via the Grand Lift of Rold. Players must descend from the broken railing on the ledge to enter. It would be best to be careful as the walkway below is not visible. You will need to find your way to the boss room to defeat the Stray Mimic Tear.
