Here’s the Black Knife Tiche Spirit Ash location in Elden Ring
Mar 20, 2022
Black Knife Tiche is an amazing Spirit Ash in Elden Ring, but getting it is very difficult.
The Black Knives are a central part of the Elden Ring story. By murdering Godwyn with the stolen Rune of Death, the mysterious group kickstarted The Shattering and the fall of the Lands Between. There are several Black Knife assassins for the player to fight, but it’s also possible to summon one to your own side. Here’s how to get the Black Knife Tiche Spirit Ash in Elden Ring and what makes it so good.
The first step to getting the Black Knife Tiche Spirit Ash is unlocking the raised plateau on the southwestern edge of Liurnia. This is probably the most difficult region to access in all of the Lands Between, but it contains several exciting treasures. This area is part of the quest for finding the Moonlight Greatsword, and getting there is a part of Ranni’s questline..
After arriving in the area, hit a Site of Grace and head to the northwest corner of the plateau. The Ringleader’s Evergaol is a field boss containing Alecto, Black Knife Ringleader. He’s the toughest assassin boss in the game, but he’s also the key to the Black Knife Alecto Spirit Ash.
How to beat Alecto, Black Knife Ringleader in Elden Ring
Alecto, Black Knife Ringleader is effectively a powered-up version of the Black Knife Assassins lurking around dungeons and the open world. He shares the same short combos and backdash, but some attacks come with a powerful damage-over-time effect that also cuts maximum health. Alecto’s own health bar is massive, but he is particularly weak to staggers.
Alecto, Black Knife Ringleader’s most threatening attack is his jumping slam. After he lands, the assassin unleashes a flurry of burning slashes. This attack’s delayed slashes and status effect appears to be inspired by Maliketh the Black Blade, who guarded the Rune of Death before the Night of the Black Knives. Just roll backward twice or block the attack and tank the damage over time. Keep counterattacking and keep your health high to beat Alecto.
After the Mimic Tear nerfs in the most recent patch, Black Knife Tiche is now one of the most powerful Spirit Ashes in Elden Ring. She has most of the same moves as the other Black Knives including the ranged slash. Tiche is great at taking boss aggro, as her massive backstep allows her to dodge most attacks. Remember that as a unique Spirit Ash, Black Knife Tiche requires Ghost Glovewort to upgrade.
