As the Realm of Shadows in the Elden Ring DLC ​​is more dangerous than any location in the base game, Shadow of the Erdtree features a new system to empower players. This means that all Unshard champions can enter the expansion on an equal footing.

To do this, he you need to use the Blessings of the Shadow Realm which come in two forms: Cult Tree Shells and the Revered Summoning Ashes. They were designed to permanently strengthen the player and their Summoning Ashesbut only when they are in the Shadow Realm and not in the Underdark of the base game.

Shadow Realm Blessings help players and Summon Ashes become more powerful.

Each time the player finds two Cult Tree Splinters, he must bring them to a Site of Grace and use their Blessing of the Realm of Shadows. The Shards of the Cult Tree increase player stats when they are in the Shadow Realm, thus making them stronger.

However, this buff will not apply if the player returns to the Underworld. If the player returns to the Shadow Realm, the reinforcement will return. These items are rare, but scattered throughout the Shadow Realm and each time two of them are used, the player becomes more powerful.

This allows low-level players to be almost as strong as high-level players when exploring the DLC. However, the higher a player’s base level, the more advantage they will maintain. In the Shadow Realm, the Blessing of the Cult Tree is considered more important than the basic level.

Revered Summoning Ashes function similarly to Cult Tree Shards, however, they only affect Summoning Ashes.

Each time the player uses this Blessing of the Realm of Shadows at a Site of Grace, all their Summoning Ashes will receive a permanent buffmaking them much more effective in the Shadow Realm, where enemies and bosses are much tougher.

This is primarily to ensure that the player and enemies in the DLC do not overpower Summoning Ashes. Thus, builds using Summoning Ashes can continue to strengthen their allies by exploring the new content.

This means that those who like to summon Imitative Tears or Tiche of the Black Knives as a combat partner in the base game can continue to do so in Shadow of the Erdtree.

Remember that these two Blessings of the Shadow Realm only work in the Shadow Realm. If you return to the Underworld, your Summoning Ashes will lose their DLC boost. Fortunately, he will be waiting for them again when the player returns to the expansion’s regions.
