For every game, using consumables wisely is key to victory, and this is no different in Elden Ring. Before you can do that, you need to understand what each consumable does. So, this is where this guide comes in, and we’ll cover the important consumables you need to know about in Elden Ring, including craftable, refillable, and some single-use items.

Each item requires a different way to acquire, and they may take a lot of your time, but trust me, it’s definitely worth it! Next, let’s take a look at which consumables are the best to prioritize. Follow this guide and you’ll be ready to shine in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree DLC when it releases on June 21st!

Stocking Up On These 10 High-Value Consumables Will Make Your Elden Ring Journey That Much Easier!

10. Kukri

For every item in the game, there are pros and cons that come into play. The same is true for each throwing knife variant in Elden Ring. With Kukri’s A-rank Strength and S-rank Dexterity, it’s going to be your best choice for pure damage, and it’ll deal with a lot of hits and a lot of Bleed buildups.

While Kukri is strong in terms of damage, the downside is that it’s slow, making it more suitable for starting fights and taking advantage of pauses in attack chains, rather than using it in conjunction with other attacks. In other words, Kukri is more like a sniper rifle than a machine gun.

9. Freezing Pots

Freezing Pots in Elden Ring don’t change with any stats, but after a basic accumulation, you can instantly cause Frostbite to most enemies (including some bosses). This is different from most Pot items in Elden Ring.

This allows you to use Frostbite to smash enemy damage resistance, but it also causes a lot of damage when the status effect triggers and interrupts certain attacks. Most notably, it will also interrupt the effect of Malenia’s Waterfowl Dance if the timing is right. Freezing Pots can easily be integrated into any build because it requires almost no conditions to produce its effect.

8. Sleep Pots

Sleep Pots can make Godskin Duo fight, which most people hate, much easier, as Sleep Pots’ status effect makes Godskin Noble and Apostle extremely vulnerable, which is also true against several other enemy types, including Magma Wyrms.

As mentioned before, every item has its pros and cons. Since many enemies are either completely immune to Sleep or are only temporarily stunned by Sleep, Sleep Pots’ status effect has a lot of variance outside of encounters like Godskin Duo. However, the effect Sleep Pots has on one of the most annoying bosses in Lands Between is useful.

7. Bloodboil Aromatic

Bloodboil Aromatic can provide an enormous boost to Strength and Dexterity-based builds, increasing your Physical damage to ridiculous levels and your Stamina to almost the same level.

However, the benefits come with risks. Using Bloodboil Aromatic puts you in danger, as the boost from Strength and Dexterity-based builds comes at the cost of a significant reduction in your damage resistance. But for those who like to live dangerously, this doesn’t matter. The boost from Strength and Dexterity-based builds will help you kill every enemy on your way.

6. Boiled Crab

Boiled Crab gives you a vigorous defense against Physical damage. If you want to protect yourself from spell damage, you need other options, but there is no better way to block physical damage, and it is arguably one of the best defense buffs in the game.

It should be noted that Blackguard Big Boggart will sell Boiled Prawn when you first meet him in Liurnia of the Lakes, but if you kill him at this time, you can never get his delicious crab. Because once Boggart moves to the moat outside Leyndell, he will start selling Boiled Crab.

5. Rune Arcs

You’ll want to make sure you have a good stockpile of Rune Arcs as they only give you a small HP boost on their own, so you won’t care too much until you run out.

However, Great Runes they activate can have huge effects, from drastically increasing your attributes to healing you every time you kill an enemy. If you want these effects, you need a Rune Arc, and every time you die, you need another, which is an extremely important item.

4. Runes

Consumable Runes are in some ways completely useless for completing the entire game and gaining all the levels you need by defeating enemies.

To make the process smoother, though, it’s helpful to find those extra Runes, especially the larger ones, and you can also use Elden Ring Runes to help you out. The largest variants can give you enough Runes until you start approaching level 100. This can give you more motivation to tackle the tough challenges that Elden Ring throws at you.

3. Flask Of Cerulean Tears

The reason the game classifies Flasks in Elden Ring as consumables is that when you travel between Sites of Grace, Flasks may run out. However, Flasks recharge when you rest, so they are not consumables in the traditional sense.

Flask Of Cerulean Tears can reduce enemies to ash with a few casts and does not require healing, so Flask Of Cerulean Tears may be more important than HP-recovery version for spell-based builds. And there are many builds that rely mainly on Weapon Skills, and they also need at least a few charges of this flask to use them.

2. Flask Of Crimson Tears

It is inevitable to get hurt in the game’s combat, which requires some way to recover. Even those builds that try to stay away from the boss will occasionally get hit. Unless you are fast enough not to get hit, it can be said that Flask Of Crimson Tears is the best choice for healing and recovery.

While there are traditional healing spells, as well as other oddball options for healing yourself, they’re generally not enough to completely replace your Flask of Crimson Tears. Few items in Lands Between have such universal benefits as Flask of Crimson Tears, though it doesn’t have as much attack power as the top items on our list.

1. Flask Of Wondrous Physick

Flask Of Wondrous Physick is the best of the consumables you can choose.

The various Crystal Tears you can put Flask Of Wondrous Physick in have a variety of effects, from increasing your stamina to increasing the damage of fast-hitting builds to temporarily completely eliminating FP costs, and more.

But the premise is that this takes already powerful builds and injects them with Super Soldier Serum. With so many options, Flask of Wondrous Physick will become one of the most versatile and effective tools in any build’s arsenal.

Through the introduction of this guide, I believe you have learned about some of the important consumables in Elden Ring. At the same time, I also hope that this guide will provide effective help for you to choose to reserve consumables in the game.
