    If you’ve exhausted all the item pickups, you can still buy all three from the Twin Maiden Husks, though you’ll need to have the Ghost-Glovewort Picker’s Bell Bearing (3) item to do so. It can be found in Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree, in the northeastern graveyard where you found all the other Gloveworts.

    Offer it to the Twin Maiden Husks back at the Roundtable Hold, and you can purchase them directly with Runes.

    What Ghost Glovewort Are Used For

    Ghost Gloveworts 7, 8, and 9 can be used to upgrade your renowned spirit ashes up to +9. This allows them to deal more damage in battle and gives them a larger health pool, which becomes especially crucial to upgrade them as you get into the late-game areas of Elden Ring.

    Do note that they can only be used on named spirit ashes and not the more generic ones like the Lone Wolves, which are instead upgraded with Grave Gloveworts. To upgrade both the renowned and generic spirit ashes, speak with Roderika at the Roundtable Hold, located across from Hewg, the blacksmith.

    That’s all you need to know about how to get Ghost Gloveworts 7, 8, and 9 in Elden Ring. Be sure to check our guide wiki for more tips and information on the game.
