Every Elden Ring Remembrance And How To Use Them
To collect every Elden Ring remembrance in the game is no easy task. There are 15 in total and will require you to beat every major boss in Elden Ring, along with some optional ones. A remembrance is a unique item that some bosses drop that can either be consumed for a large amount of runes or traded in for unique spells and weapons. For a full list of remembrances available in Elden Ring, how to trade them and what trade options you’ll get for them, read on.

Elden Ring Remembrances: Where To Exchange And Duplicate
Once you’ve defeated the first major boss of the game, a chamber will open in the Roundtable Hold which contains The Fingers and a Finger Maiden Crone named Enia. Speak to Enia and select ‘receive power from remembrance’ to see the options you have. Here, you can trade them in for unique items or spells, there will always be two options that you must pick from. However, if you have encountered any of the walking mausoleums in the world it is possible to duplicate remembrances here, meaning you can collect both rewards if you choose. There are few mausoleums though, so you’ll have to select which ones you wish to duplicate wisely.
Weapons that are traded for remembrances have special skills already on them, meaning that you cannot combine them with an Ash of War. Enia will also stock armour previously worn by defeated bosses, which are available to purchase here with runes. Below a full list of the Remembrances in Elden Ring, with the information of what you can trade them for and who you must beat to get them. Beware obvious spoilers for main bosses.
How Many Remembrances Are There In Elden Ring?
There are a total of 15 Remembrances to collect across Elden Ring, giving players a lot of potential new weapons and spells to unlock with them. Not all of them come during the main bosses, so you can miss the majority of them if you don't explore enough of the Lands Between.

This sorcery essentially conjures a moon from the player to be thrown against enemies in a blast. Once contact has been made it also reduces magic damage negation of the target for a full minute. The damage of the moon can be increased when used in conjunction with the Carian Regal Sceptre, so it may be worth duplicating this remembrance if you’re going for an intelligence-based build.
Second Reward: Carian Regal Sceptre
