Talismans in Ashen provide your character with stat increase and a variety of boosts. At any given time, you can’t have more than 4 Talismans active. To use them, you need to head to the ‘Talismans’ menu from the ‘Gear’ menu. However, before you can do so, you must complete the Annex of Light.


Ashen Talismans

Once you’ve done that, you need to speak to Amara at Vagrant’s Rest to use Talismans for 1,000 Scoria. As you progress through the game, you’re able to unlock more Talismans. In our Talismans Guide, we’ve detailed everything you need to know about finding all the Talismans in the game and their effects.

With Amity, you’re able to gain 1% resistance against all damage types every 5 seconds while a companion is nearby. The effect caps at 10%. Moreover, you also need to be near a companion for the effect to kick in.

Axung Hominis
You gain a 15% chance of acquiring Axung Hominis dropping from the kills.

While you’re holding a lantern, you’ll be able to gain a 25% bonus to stun.

Moving away from the Vagrant’s Rest will continue to increase your max HP to a maximum of +25.

Lesser Constitution / Greater Constitution
It increases your overall stamina by 2%. You can acquire the Greater Constitution after the completion of the Clarity stage of Vorsa’s side quest.

Lesser Vigor / Greater Vigor
It increases your max HP by 2%. The Greater Vigor, on the other hand, increases it by 5%. You unlock it after the completion of Blood Ties for Jokell.

You gain 10% stamina regeneration using the Talisman.

This allows you to open all the doors by yourself.

Last Stand
As the name suggests, the lower your HP is, the more damage to deal to enemies.

Upon the death of your companion, you gain +25% damage capping at +50%. The effect lasts until you rest at a Ritual Stone. In order to unlock it, you need to return Cunning Pestle to Silaren.

You gain a +25% chance of acquiring additional crafting materials from defeated enemies. You can unlock it after giving Roamer Horn to Vorsa in the game.
