Loot for the taking

There are 15 Remembrances in Elden Ring that are dropped by bosses. They can be consumed to obtain a lot of runes, or exchanged for nifty rewards. It’s even possible to duplicate them to get more out of them.

Our Elden Ring Remembrances guide will help you with everything you need to know about these boss items and their rewards.


How to exchange and duplicate Remembrances in Elden Ring

Every Remembrance in Elden Ring can be consumed and converted into runes. However, since there are plenty of rune farming methods out there, doing this isn’t always necessary.

Instead, you’re better off visiting Roundtable Hold to talk to Finger Reader Enia. Defeating some bosses adds thematic items — like armor pieces — to Enia’s shop. More importantly, the Remembrances themselves can be exchanged by selecting the “Obtain power from Remembrance” dialogue option. Each Remembrance in Elden Ring can be exchanged for two different rewards.

It’s also possible to duplicate them by entering Walking Mausoleums. These enormous ambulatory chapels require you to clear the gray skull-growths in order to gain access. You’ll then be able to interact with a coffin that duplicates a Remembrance, including those that have already been used. You can only duplicate one Remembrance per Mausoleum.

Duplicating Remembrances means you can grab both rewards from a specific Remembrance in a single run if you want. But remember that there are more Remembrances than Walking Mausoleums, so you should choose your rewards wisely.

All Remembrances you have will carry over to a subsequent New Game+ run, but they can’t be duplicated until you defeat that particular boss.
