      Lmao I can’t even use my final smelter wedge cause the game doesn’t give me a prompt to examine the ashen idol. There goes Nadalia’s soul for me. And before anyone says anything yes, I did beat Alonne and I do have the final smelter wedge from him. It is in my inventory, I just can’t use it

        For me, this kinda made me hate Brume Tower. Well, no actually the run to the blue Smelter Demon did... but at least that was challenging. If the right amount of wedges just added up, it would make way more sense than running around like a madman for hours like I did searching for one which won't exist. Skip the first idol and you can do the boss correctly. You should not have to kill Alonne beforehand to get the wedge you need.

          So, they re spread out with the intention of the last ashen idol being one of the four in the fume knight, and in order to destroy the last idol you re forced to kill sir alonne first?

          Well, a troll move for relatively new players, but the choice is yours anyway. Either you "borrow" alonne's wedge or face raimeand his heals like a chad.

            This is so damn stupid, why the last one 'stick' is dropped from the boss who you actually faces >only after defeating the Fume knight< ???
            Now I'm stuck right outside his arena because i'm lack the last one of those to destroy the idol and because of that, if i enter the fog the ashen idol will keep regenerating the life bar of this bastard.

            "Since one smelter wedge can be acquired after defeating Sir Alonne, an ashen idol should be skipped when encountered in order to have enough smelter wedges to destroy the four at the bottom of Brume Tower in order to make the boss fight easier. The two best ones to avoid at first are (as listed above) number 4 and 5, as they are near bonfires and can be tedious to get to."

            But how i'm supposed to known that before? If you doesn't have any real argument and wanna say "you not supposed to know everything at the first play-through" or "try again in NG+" because you either read the wiki before playing or unintentionally skipped some idol before reaching this area so you could destroy all four before facing the f***** in black armor - don't lose your time!
            This damned game is broken, no wonder why so much people dislikes it the most.

              Damn, I guess I'll have to fight fume knight while keeping him away from one area, I didn't realize you could run out before fume knight.

                  do not use ashen idols. save them for fume knight. the idols near his location will heal him if he get close them. so first destroy the idols near him then you are free to use them for any idols you want.

                    There's more smelter wedges there in the big elevator room at the end of the hall with three fire traps and enchanted armor knights

                      This page is correct, there are only 11. There are 12 pieces of Nadalia's soul, but only 11 idols. The last piece is dropped by the Fume Knight when you kill him. If you want the locations of all of the idols, go to the soul of Nadalia, bride of ash (fragment) or ashen idol page. The locations of the wedges on this page are accurate.

                        There are 12 Smelter Wedges in SoTFS. I have 11 pieces of Nadia's soul with one idol left standing and Sir Alonne to fight. My Fume Knight had a Nadia healer because I destroyed them in order but he still didn't stand a chance.
