Your Spirit Calling Bell is such a powerful tool in Elden Ring. It allows you to summon wolves, jellyfishes, headless soldiers, and even skeletons to help fight your enemies.
However, most of the spirit ashes you find throughout the game don’t feel like much more than a tool. That’s not Latenna’s case.
She is a powerful ally for you to summon, but she is also one that volunteers to become a spirit as long as you make her a promise.
This is a beautiful questline that made me start using her more throughout the game. Not only because she is a powerful turret who can deal a lot of damage once upgraded, but mostly because I wanted to keep her close. She would help me, and, at the same time, I was doing all I could to keep my promise.
You might have heard about the “albinauric woman” when looking for the other side of the Haligtree Secret Medallion. However, finding her is not enough to get her spirit ashes.
If you want to make her your spirit ally and summon her during battle, look no further. This guide has everything you need on how to get Latenna the Albinauric’s spirit ash in Elden Ring.
How to Get Latenna’s Spirit Ash
There are two different ways that you can get Latenna’s spirit ash. Yet, both involve finding her and her wolf companion.
If you find both pieces of the Haligtree Secret Medallion and go to the cave where she hides, she will be dead. This is most likely due to having her wolf killed by Gideon and being stuck alone in a cave.
This way, you can get her spirit ash. However, you will miss her emotionally charged dialogue and questline, which is by far one of my favorites in Elden Ring.
However, if you find Albus and go straight to her before going to the mountaintops of the giants, she will talk to you.
Latenna will mention that it was Gideon who took her wolf, her better half, from her. In the end, she will join if you promise to help her fulfill her objective so her wolf’s death won’t be in vain.
The first piece of the medallion can be found at the Albinauric Village.
You must find Albus, the old Albinauric. He will give you a piece of the Haligtree Secret Medallion. Your tip on where to find the second half is provided by Gideon.
“Find the Albinauric woman. She hides in a cave to the west of the Layskar Ruins, which jut from the mist-shrouded Lake of Liurnia. She knows the location of the medallion’s counterpart, I am sure.”
Once you find her, she will think that you are there to end her life the way Gideon did to her wolf. However, she will start over once she realizes you have half of the medallion.
The fact that Albus trusted you makes her trust you as well. If you agree to help her, she will let you know where the other half of the medallion is.
Then, Latenna will voluntarily give her life away to become a spirit you can summon. All that she asks is that you put her ashes next to her wolf once the fight is over.
How Good Is Latenna’s Spirit Ash?
Honestly, Latenna is pretty good.
She is not too young for an albinauric, which means her legs don’t work anymore. Even though she was a magic archer, she was stuck in that cave because she couldn’t leave it without her wolf.
In combat, she won’t move once you summon her. However, she will shoot three arrows per shot and deal a decent amount of constant damage as long as you keep the enemies away from her.
If you upgrade her spirit ash enough, she can even defeat Godrick, the Grafted by herself.
If you manage to keep a boss on your feet at all times, she has enough damage output to kill the boss for you. Your job is to keep her alive while she dishes out damage.
Note that although Latenna is an excellent summon, you do have to upgrade her by talking to Rodrika before you can see her full potential.
Latenna, the Albunaric woman, is a turret-like spirit ash that can deal lots of damage if you keep the enemies away from her. Her legs don’t work due to her people’s degenerative issues, meaning she won’t move once summoned. Part of using this spirit ash correctly is knowing where to allocate her to allow Latenna to fire her magic arrows from safety.
In order to get this spirit ash, you must find the cave where she hides to the west of the Layskar Ruins. However, if you want to follow her questline, you must do it early, right after talking to Albus and getting half of the medallion.
Although Latenna is pretty good, you do have to upgrade her before she can live up to her potential.
