Ashen Idol is an enemy in Dark Souls 2.
Ashen Idol Information
Nadalia scattered her souls into fragments and influenced the Brume Tower with the idols (Similar to the concept of Phylactery or Horcrux, once all idols are destroyed, then Nadalia herself is destroyed) that have effects such as cursing an area with dark fog, reanimating enemies covered with ash, and healing enemies with Warmth. In order to dispatch them, plunge the Smelter Wedge item into the idols. While doing so you're temporarily invulnerable for a brief second. Highly recommended to go for a suicidal run to purge the cursed rooms since they won't respawn.
- Can buff and resurrect nearby enemies
- The Hollow Skin, located within the Crown of the Old Iron King DLC, is ideal for mitigating the Idols' curse effect
- If your character is hit and staggered out of the stab animation, it may become impossible to activate the idol a second time, meaning all associated rewards will be unavailable for that NG cycle. There is currently no known fix, so be sure to clear the area of enemies or be sure that you can activate the idol safely.
- Using a bonfire ascetic does NOT revive the Ashen Idols. (tested at the Lowermost Floor bonfire)
