Pots are throwable items with all kinds of effects in Elden Ring. You can power up to spend FP, get all kinds of elements, blow up the environment, do status build-ups, or attack the weakness of certain enemies. You can use Pots in many different ways. In this article, you will find out the best pots to use and where to get them.
Types of Pots
There are three types of Pots in the game namely: Cracked Pots, Ritual Pots, and Roped Pots. Cracked Pots are regular pots that you can just aim and throw or target an enemy using auto-lock. Ritual Pots are thrown in the same way but may cost FP and are generally stronger. Roped Pots, on the other hand, are dropped behind like a mine, ideally used for targeting enemies that are chasing you.
Pots and the recipes to make them comes from the various cookbooks around the world. With a cookbook, you can check which recipe you’ll need for a pot. Pots usually need mushroom, make sure to stack on those. Rope pots require a string. Naturally, Cracked Pots need a cracked pot to make. You can hold a maximum of 15 cracked pots. Ritual Pots also need a ritual pot. The maximum number you can hold is 10.

This is acquired through Alexander’s long quest line. Near the Seethewater Terminus, Alexander will be basking himself in the flames to make himself stronger, that’s when he’ll give you the helmet. The Companion Jar also raises the potency of thrown jars by around 20 percent. This is a part of the Jarburg quest line which requires you to complete the Alexander storyline first.
