How to duplicate Remembrances in Elden Ring

In Dark Souls 3, players could give their boss souls to Ludleth in Firelink Shrine to unlock special weapons. That same mechanic returns to Elden Ring with a few added features. Instead of “boss souls,” you have Remembrances, and instead of Ludleth in Firelink Shrine, you have Finger Reader Enia in Roundtable Hold. Like boss souls in Dark Souls 3, Remembrances give players some options. However, unlike Dark Souls 3, there’s a way to duplicate Remembrances without playing through New Game+ (or using some item duplication glitch).

However, to duplicate Remembrances in Elden Ring, you’ll need to find a Walking Mausoleum. They’re hard to miss when you see one but pretty rare in the Lands Between. Here’s where to find the Walking Mausoleums, how to bring them down, and how to duplicate Remembrances in Elden Ring.

What are Remembrances in Elden Ring?

If you’re like us and found your first mausoleum before killing your first main boss, you’re probably wondering what Remembrances are. Remembrances are the last vestige of each primary boss in Elden Ring. For example, the Remembrance of the Full Moon Queen (pictured above) came off Renalla after defeating her in Raya Lucaria’s Acadamy. Similar to Dark Souls 3, Remembrances can be turned into the Finger Reader in Roundtable Hold to unlock special boss weapons. However, those weapons usually have late-game attribute requirements, like 40 Strength or 60 Intelligence, to use.

Each Remembrance gives you two unique options. For example, after we killed Renalla, Queen of the Full Moon, we had the option of choosing the Carian Regal Scepter or Renalla’s Full Moon Sorcery. Alternatively, you can consume the Remembrance to gain a plethora of runes. However, we don’t recommend doing so. You’re better off getting the weapon, spell, or item, as there’s no other way of unlocking them. Who knows, perhaps you’ll reallocate your stats at Renalla later on to use those particular weapons.

Players who want both weapons are in luck, as there’s a way to duplicate Remembrances in Elden Ring. First, however, you’ll have to find a Walking Mausoleum.

Where to find Walking Mausoleums in Elden Ring

Walking Mausoleums are impossible to miss but pretty rare to find, as there are only four in the Lands Between. There’s one in the Weeping Peninsula, two on Liurnia Highway, and one at the top of Liurnia Lake. Here are the exact map locations for every Walking Mausoleum in Elden Ring.

From the Isolated Merchant’s Shack site of grace, head east until you hear the tolling of a low bell. This sound indicates when a mausoleum is nearby. You can also buy a “tip” from the merchant that teaches you how to take down the giant rock beasts. We’ll explain how to take them down, saving you a few thousand runes.

You’ll find this Walking Mausoleum at the top of Lake Liunira, underneath the broken bridge connecting Raya Lucaria’s Castle to the mainland.

There are two walking Mausoleums to find in the middle of the highway. Thankfully, they’re right next to each other. You’ll find one in the pond just north of the Ruined Labyrinth site of grace. The other is walking around on the cliff above, easily accessible from the pond.

How to take down Walking Mausoleums in Elden Ring

Three of the four Walking Mausoleums (Weeping Peninsula and Liurnia Highway) have the same weakness. On each of their legs, you’ll see clusters of white skulls. Stay on your horse and attack these clusters to break them off. You don’t have to get all of them, just enough to cause the Walking Mausoleum to collapse. Just don’t get stuck underneath when it finally falls. Once you’ve brought it down, ride around to the front and open the doors.

The Walking Mausoleum in Liurnia Lake is the only one that can’t be taken down like the others. Here’s how to take down the Walking Mausoleum in Liurnia Lake.

First, ride towards the Walking Mausoleum until it starts walking around. Then, look for a Spiritspring tucked into the cliffside. This spring launches you up to the cliffs above, where you’ll find large headstones poking out of the rock wall. You’ll need to use Torrent to jump from the first headstone down to the second, but then you can do the rest on foot.

Once you’re level with the mausoleum, wait for it to approach the cliffside. This will take a few minutes, as these giants are pretty slow. Once it’s close enough, hop back on your horse and jump to it. We can’t stress enough how important it is to wait for the mausoleum to get close. If you miss, the fall damage will kill you, and you’ll have to start the arduous process all over again. A little bit of patience goes a long way. After jumping to the mausoleum, break the skull clusters to bring it down. Alternatively, you can shoot the skull clusters with a bow, but they’re hard to hit as the mausoleum keeps moving, so we recommend patience over accuracy.

Inside each Walking Mausoleum, you’ll learn how to duplicate Remembrances in Elden Ring. However, there are two important factors to keep in mind:

  • First, you can only duplicate each Remembrance one time.
  • Second, you can only duplicate one Remembrance per mausoleum.

With only four mausoleums and five Remembrances to collect, we advise waiting until after you’ve defeated Godrick, Renalla, and General Radahn to start duplicating. These three provide different weapons for different builds. Furthermore, they’re the first three bosses you should realistically beat during any given playthrough. Duplicate their remembrances based on your build. For example, if you’re playing a mage, it’d be wise to duplicate Renalla’s Remembrance rather than Godrick’s.

The best weapons in Armored Core 6
A boss fight in Armored Core 6.

Time to load up for your next mission, merc. Your mech is your real character in Armored Core 6, and the different components you attach to it can completely change how it functions. There are different legs, cores, and all types of ways to change up your mech, but the most immediate and important has to be your weapon loadout. These can range from melee weapons and shotguns to massive missile launchers and Gatling guns. Since your mech can hold weapons in both hands and on each shoulder, there's a lot of room to experiment and give yourself options. Still, weapons aren't cheap and credits aren't always easy to come by as a gun for hire, so here are the best weapons in Armored Core 6 to invest in first.
Best Armored Core 6 weapons

Vvvc-774LS Laser Slicer
Let's begin with a melee weapon, which is far more useful in a game with rifles and lasers than you might expect. This is great for cleaving through mobs of smaller enemies thanks to its wide attack range and the fact that each swing counts as two hits. With an attack power of 1,615, that's a lot of damage coming out very fast -- and that's not even considering the ability to charge it up while advancing. It is on the heavier side for its class, and takes a while to "reload," but is a perfect way to get some breathing room if you get swarmed.
VP-60LCS Laser Cannon
If you need an early shoulder-mounted laser weapon, the VP-60LCS is a great one you can pick up in Chapter 1. They do decent damage, but the real usefulness comes in their staggering ability. Their rate of fire is essentially as fast as you can pull the trigger, and without a need to reload, you can rely on them whenever you need to so long as you don't overheat.
DF-GA-08-HU-BEN Gatling Gun
Sometimes we just want to hold down the trigger and make our problems go away. That's what Gatling guns are for, and this one ranks among the best. Each round will obviously do little damage, but with 1,300 rounds to chew through, not much can hold out against its sustained fire. Having one or two of these in your hands to follow up after stunning enemies with a laser weapon results in the perfect combo.
Songbirds Grenade Cannon
You won't have access to heavy explosives like the Songbirds until around midway into the game, but it is a must-buy as soon as you can. As you would expect, these explosives deal a ton of impact damage that has a decent area of effect if you're firing near a group. As a cherry on top, the grenades also inflict a high amount of stagger, so they're quite useful against bosses as well.
BML-G1/P07VTC-12 Vertical Missile Launcher
We couldn't close out a list of best weapons without a missile launcher, could we? For your money, this model is king. This shoulder-mounted weapon of mass destruction houses 12 missiles in its case that are ready to track your targets down, even behind cover and around obstacles. Just lock on to up to a dozen targets and let the missiles do the work from there.

Every FromSoftware Soulsborne game, ranked
A dragon in Elden Ring.

It could be said that FromSoftware's ever-expanding collection of punishing but rewarding role-playing games – lovingly referred to as the Soulsborne series – has been among the most influential of all time. In fact, the cultural impact of Soulsborne games has been so powerful that it's led to an entirely new subgenre of role-playing games known as "Soulslikes." But while many studios have tried to mimic the famed Japanese developer's game design philosophy to varying results, few have come close to offering the same breathtaking experiences.

Granted, as the grandfather of Soulslikes, FromSoftware simply knows its way around the genre like no other. And by maintaining extremely similar gameplay mechanics, controls, and UI elements across each game, the studio ensures that its games, though not directly connected, remain familiar to fans who have played previous entries in the series. The most consistent thing of all, though, is the consistently challenging combat and exploration, which has defined the series since the beginning and is often the most-cited reason players flock to the games.

Is Elden Ring cross-platform?
Characters fighting on horseback in Elden Ring.

The various Souls and Souls-adjacent games that FromSoftware has developed ever since Demon's Souls have all introduced or iterated on new features that few, if any, other games ever attempted. We're talking about more than just difficulty, too. Things like how the games handle death, leveling up, currency, and story were all fresh takes in the industry. Perhaps the most ambitious -- and at times clunky -- innovation came in how the games handled multiplayer as a component. With Elden Ring being the latest in its catalog, many wondered how FromSoftware would change these systems, if it did at all.

Elden Ring is a Souls game at heart, only now viewed through the lens of an open-world experience. Fans of the studio's previous works will immediately recognize various multiplayer aspects, such as messages written by players and ghosts, and bloodstains showing the last moments of someone else's life. Summoning help, invading, or being invaded, however, is the real meat of what people expect from a multiplayer standpoint, and these all are back in Elden Ring. But with the game coming to every major platform, including past-generation systems, will you be able to play with friends on different systems? Here's all the info you need on whether or not Elden Ring is cross-platform.
