Where can you summon spirits?
Go to an area in Elden Ring that supports the process of spirit summoning. You can generally summon spirits in areas that have a lot of enemies.
You will know you are in an area that supports summoning with the help of a purple icon that appears on the left of your screen. Until the moment this slot appears, you will notice that all your consumable slots are greyed out.
Once the purple icon makes itself visible, you can summon spirits by pressing the Use Item button. Doing so results in a quick animation where you see the spirits make themselves visible and surround you. Each of these spirits will have its own health bars, and they can cause damage to you during the course of the animation.
Once you summon a spirit, you will need to rest at a Site of Grace before you continue to summon more spirits again.
How to Dismiss Spirits?
To dismiss spirits, you need to simply press the Use Item button again. Once you do so, you will receive a prompt asking you if you wish to send the spirits back to the beyond. Clicking on Yes will complete the process of dismissing the spirits.
So there you have it. This is all you need to know about summoning spirits in Elden Ring. As you can see, doing so is not too tricky. Just remember to follow all of the steps in this guide, and you should be good to go!
