In Elden Ring, players will come across various consumable items that can be used in different ways. While you can craft some of these consumables, others are found simply by exploring the map. The crafting system allows players to acquire these items easily, provided they have the required materials. Finding these materials can be tough, and we have compiled a list to help players find them quickly. Here are some of the best consumable items and how to get them in Elden Ring.

Elden Ring best consumable items

Consumables in Elden Ring Ring include Grease, Pots, Perfumer Arts, Boluses, Meat, Throwing Knives, Stones, and various other items. You will need specific Cookbooks to craft some of these items on the go. Players can effectively use these items against enemies to build up various types of damage, even if your build doesn’t have it. For instance, you can throw Holy Water Pots to inflict Holy Damage on enemies that tend to regenerate. Players can do this without having to get a Holy-weapon-based build. We have divided the best consumables according to various categories to help players get them quickly. 

Best Pots to use in Elden Ring

Crafting Pots will require Cracked Pots, Ritual Pots, and various Cookbooks players find while exploring the map. Similarly, you will also need specific items to inflict all the different types of afflictions. There are also Roped variant Pots that can be crafted, and you will need the String item to use them. Strings are easily found by defeating demi-human enemies.
