Most Useful Materials for Item Crafting in Elden Ring

Elden Ring’s crafting system offers an impressive collection of useful materials that players can transform into valuable items!

Soulslikes have a predefined formula since the creation of Demon’s Souls. Since then, most FromSotfware titles have followed this winning recipe with exactitude.

This does not mean innovation has not been an essential feature of each title. However, Elden Ring took this experimentation to levels no other Soulslike had before.

For starters, Elden Ring brought new features like Spirit Ashes and Ashes of War. Another significant change Elden Ring brought to the table: the probability of crafting items.

Players collect materials in The Lands Between, and through crafting recipes, these are transformed into life-saving items.

There are many valuable materials you can collect for crafting in Elden Ring!
