Basically, we’ll farm everything, every Golden Runematerial or consumable will be found and looted if you follow this guide. You’ll finish your first playthrough with plenty of materials to do anything you want in your New Game+ or Co-op / PvP game after.

I’ve planned this guide to do everything in the most efficient order, so that we never hit difficulty walls and complete the full game with as little deaths as possible. Every upgrade that can help will be obtained at the right moment, you’ll be warned in advance of every ambush and trap, there will be an optimal strategy for each of the 170 bosses in Elden Ring.

  • If you’ve never played a souls game before, I guarantee you will Platinum this game without any problems if you follow my guide.
  • If you’re a casual gamer or 70+ year old with bad reflexes, I guarantee you will Platinum this game too.
  • If you’re a veteran souls player, I guarantee you won’t regret following this guide, it will save you a lot of time and you’ll probably learn a few tricks and hidden game mechanics.

We’ll start the game with a few basic combat mechanics, get some early upgrades and progressively add more tools to our arsenal and explore some advanced combat tactics as well as new game mechanics which only exist in Elden Ring.

The Build

We’ll start with a very simple quality build and keep it that way in the early game. We’ll be very powerful and kill our first two Shardbearers that way.

Then we’ll use a single Larval Tear to respec and go a different route. We’ll be go heavy in INT and switch to one of the strongest weapons in the game, Moonveil, which will not only make us extremely strong in melee, but also have access to a range of Sorceries which will make us even more powerful and versatile.

About midway through our adventure, we’ll also acquire the most iconic weapon in all souls games: the Dark Moon Greatsword, which will make us even stronger. That’s the general path we’ll take, but there will be many other surprises and upgrades we’ll pick up along the way. We’ll of course use Summons, Ashes of war, Shields and strong counters. We’ll also use a bit of crafting in certain situations to use pots. And we’ll use Perfumes, which are incredibly underrated.

One of my goals was to showcase a very strong yet versatile character build, instead of a one-trick pony type of character. I wished I could have included more variety, such as Incantations and Dragon Communion Incantations, but it would’ve required more respecing to make this viable and keep our power curve above the enemies we encounter. So I kept it simple and focused primarily on making this build simpleefficient and most importantly: get us through Elden Ring without any painful hurdles such as dying 10+ times to the same boss or difficult area.

The Guide’s format

This is a double format Guide. There is a full video walkthrough AND a very compact text walkthrough.

The video walkthrough will contain more detailed combat tips, so I suggest you check them out.

Each video will have a list of timecodes with all the important moments in the episodes:

  • Timecode for each Item obtained
  • Timecode for each Combat tip and boss strategy
  • Timecode for each Important info given
  • Timecode for each Trophy obtained

All cut scenes and NPC dialogues will be includedbut if you want to skip them it will be quite easy to do so: each video will be spilt into chapters, with clear labels so you can skip the parts you don’t want to watch or would rather watch on your own.

The text version of my Elden Ring walkthrough should also be quite useful, it is very compact, and whenever the direction or explanation isn’t detailed enough, you can always check the video to get a clearer direction.


Q: Will I get all trophies, including the platinum, if I follow your guide?

A: Yes of course. But much more than that. You’ll get everything you can possibly get in one playthrough. All items, weapons, spells, etc. Everything.

Q: Do I have to follow your character build exactly ?

A: No. You can follow this guide and do your own build and you’ll be fine. However, this is a very optimized guide and I believe the builds I use are extremely fun and powerful. Some strategies in the later part of the game are specific to my build, so you’ll have to find your own strategies if you don’t have the same skills / spells.

Q: Can I follow your guide if I’m on PC / PS / Xbox?

A: Yes. This guide works for ALL platforms.

Q: I love your guides! How can I support your work?

A: There are many ways to help me become a full time guide writer:

  1. ✅Subscribe to the channel
  2. 👍Like and comment every video
  3. 📢Share this walkthrough to your communities / forums / friends
  4. ❇️Leave a tip:

Q: Is there a way to get the Gesture: The Ring if I didn’t preorder the game?

A: Yes. You have to play co-op and defeat a boss with someone who preordered the game.

Q: Why don’t you enable the Martyr Effigy?

A: Because it’s a personal choice. Many players don’t want to play Elden Ring (or other Souls games) online, no co-op and no PvP. Once you enable a Martyr Effigy, there is no way to disable it. So it’s really a matter of preferences. If you don’t want to PvP or to co-op at a specific location, you should never enable that Martyr Effigy. Also, this guide is 100% focused on PvE. It’s not a PvP guide or a co-op guide. It’s actually everything but that.

Q: Are you also covering rare drops from farmable enemies?

A: No. The guide would be way too long. The only exception will be the Brass Shield because we’ll use it in our build and it’s probably the best shield in the game in terms of weight / strength requirement to Guard Boost ratio. None of the other farmable rare drops are necessary, because the best items in the game are guaranteed drops.

Character creation

Origin: Samurai

You can pick a different origin if you like, especially if you want to take a different path for your character build.

But in the end it doesn’t really matter, at high level those starting attributes won’t matter at all.

Let me tell you why Samurai is a good starting class:

  • Katana is an amazing weapon with great stats, innate bleed buildup and one of the best Ashes of War in the game
  • Samurai starts with a Longbow, which will be quite useful early on
  • The starting stats spread is perfect for our quality build and the unique weapon we’ll switch to soon.

Keepsake: Lands Between Rune is the best choice, it gives us some early runes to spend to have an easier start

  • Why not pick the Golden Seed? Because we’ll get plenty Golden Seeds early and reach the maximum amount of flask charges regardless. We’ll finish the game with 12 extra Golden Seeds, so it’s useless to pick this keepsake.
  • Why not pick the Stonesword Key? Because we’ll finish our first playthrough with 34 Stonesword Keys to spare, and that’s after opening every single imp statue.
  • Why not pick any other other item? Because we’ll get them all during our first platythrough anyway.

Prepare for boss Black Knife Assassin
Flask, Moonlight, enter
Summon Mimic, Heal up
This boss is invisible, you can only see its footsteps on the water when he approaches you.
But the Mimic will make this much easier for us because he doesn’t care about invisibility tricks.
  • Concealing Veil
Warp to Primeval Sorcerer Azur
He will no longer be there but an item will be left in his place:
  • Azur’s Armor Set
Warp to Gelmir Hero’s Grave
Rest and level up.
We will probably die soon, so spend those runes.
Re-equip better armor if possible while staying on Medium Load
== Gelmir Hero’s Grave Walkthrough ==
Work your way down past the Death Chariot, to a doorway to the left with some rubbles
  • Ghost Glovewort [7]
Past doorway, ambush to the left.
Sneak up stairs to backstab crossbowman
Use Loretta’s to shoot down the firethrower
Loot the room, downstairs:
  • Grave Glovewort [7]
  • Grave Glovewort [6]
Under the stairs, two more zombies:
  • Grave Glovewort [7]
  • Grave Glovewort [6]
  • Ghost Glovewort [7]
From firethrower we disable, south hallway 2x crossbowman ambush each side of corpse:
  • Golden Rune [6]
Back to Firethrower, east doorway watch out for chariot:
  • Grave Glovewort [7]
South slope up to dead end:
  • Stonesword Key
This is where we probably die because of this chariot
But this one is special and doesn’t necessarily one-shot you
If you die:
Back at the start, reach the lowest alcove the Death Chariot can reach, just before a lava slope
If you survive:
Backtrack through the firethrower room and down the stairs, back on the slope access with the rubbles
Bloodhound’s Step your way to cross the lava west, then south to hallway with chest:
  • Ringed Finger
North across lava to an alcove with flower:
  • Grave Glovewort [7]
Hug the northwest wall and drop down. Gravity will kill you if you don’t hug the northwest wall to drop down.
Drop down again:
  • Grave Glovewort [7]
East ladder down to corpse:
  • 3x Beast Blood
Bloodhound Step your way up lava slope (alcoves midway), then doorway at the end with a dark shade enemy, you can sneak up and backstab it:
  • Mantis Blade
  • Grave Glovewort [7]
Drop down at the narrow slope to a small ledge:
  • 6x Smoldering Butterfly
Under the slope is a passage to a room with a Bloodhound type enemy. Buff up Moonlight, sneak up and kill it in one charged R2:
  • Bloodhound Armor Set
Corpse behind it:
  • Gelmir Knight Armor Set
Ladder up, break pots:
  • 5x Root Resin
Check video for a cool way to get back down, you can actually walk up on the wooden beams and drop down on the chariot to let it carry you back to the bottom of the slope. It’s a little risky, the safe approach is to simply Bloodhound Step your way back down and hide into alcoves whenever you can.
Ladder up, open boss door and north to boss fog:
Prepare for boss: Red Wolf of the Champion
Flask, Moonlight, 1H + Shield, enter
Summon Mimic, Heal up, Shield up, let Mimic get aggro, Charged R2s
  • Bloodhound Knight Floh
North is a chest:
  • Deathroot
  • 2x Root Resin (next to chest)

We’re about to kill one of the most annoying bosses in this game. It’s just another Ulcerated Tree Spirit, but it’s the worst of all because it is in the middle of a scarlet rot, in a place with very little space to move, and to make things worse, this is one of the highest level version you can find.
So let’s do the Kamehameha strategy!
Mix Wonderous Physick:
Opaline Bubbletear
Cerulean Hidden Tear
Memorize spells:
Loretta’s Greatbow
Cannon of Haima
Rock Sling
Terra Magica (must be just before Comet Azur)
Comet Azur
Azur’s Glintstone Crown
Jellyfish Shield
Graven-School Talisman
Radagon’s Soreseal
Magic Scorpion Charm
Work your way down, kill the 4 Centipedes (I suggest to do it from the ledge above, using Loretta’s to be safe)
Pop a Rune Arc (so we meet the STR requirement on the Jellyfish Shield – If you’re out of Rune Arc, equip the +5 STR Talisman instead of Graven-School Talisman)
Hotkey Preserving Boluses
Then check video for the strategy. It’s actually simple:
  1. Stand on the mushroom pile closest to the waterfall where the Ulcerated Tree Spirit is
  2. Have Physicks Flask and Terra Magica ready
  3. Carian Regal Staff in right hand / Jellyfish shield in your offhand
  4. Wait for Scarlet Rot to be gone
  5. Contagious Fury
  6. Terra Magica
  7. Run close to waterfall to trigger boss and run back to mushroom pile (while running, switch to Comet Azur)
  8. Flask of Wondrous Physick
  9. Lock-on Boss
  10. Comet Azur (Hold it to channel it until boss dies)
If you’re unlucky and get interrupted, recast Comet Azur immediately.
As soon as boss is dead, heal up / cure rot. Congratulations on beating one of the most annoying bosses in the game.
  • Golden Seed
Loot the 2 corpses by the waterfall:
  • Smithing Stone [6]

17:59 Episode End


From Grace: Moonlight Altar
East to Lunar Estate Ruins, first building you’ll be ambushed by 3 wraith bell casters, hide behind a wall, summon Mimic and heal up
Kill them and loot the corpse:
  • 5x Glintstone Firefly
Southeast you’ll be ambushed by a Revenant, run away and let Mimic get aggro, then kill it. Loot corpse:
  • Golden Rune [10]
North behind wall you’ll find an Imp Statue, you might get ambushed by 4x Wraith Bell Casters here
Use Stonesword key
Illusionary stairs next to statue, reveal and get down to open chest:
  • Cerulean Amber Medallion +2
Further east to the other part of the Lunar Estate Ruins, you’ll be ambushed by another Revenant.
Let Mimic get aggro and then Charged R2 from a safe distance
Illusionary stairs at the easternmost building of this part of the ruins, go down to find chest:
  • 3x Smithing Stone [8]
Ride a long way southwest towards the tower in the distance, keep going until you reach Site of Grace: Altar South
Rest and level up
Ashes of War:
Carian Retaliation (apply it on Carian Knight’s Shield)
We’ll use this Ash of War soon against a Boss
Examine the book to get the riddle message:
“Seek three great wise beasts”
Southwest to the cliff’s edge, you should see the 1st Wise Beast (turtle vertically against the cliff’s wall below)
Shoot it with any spell
Ride northeast, all the way to the eastern end of this isle on the upper plateau, if you look down you’ll see a hidden area in a lower plateau with the 2nd Wise Beast. Shoot it from above.
Warp back to Altar South
Follow the path doing an “S” on your map, this will take you to the upper plateau with 3 Gazebos. They are guarded by a very strong and relentless Radagon Wolf. The safest way is to just loot the 3 gazebos while running away from the wolf (check video).
But if you want to kill this annoying beast anyway, the safest way is to be on a horse, run in circles around the wolf and cast stars of ruin. Anyways, kill it or run from it, but loot the 3 gazebos for:
  • 3x Smithing Stone [7]
  • 3x Smithing Stone [8]
  • 3x Smithing Stone [7]
North you should find a spiritspring (just southeast of the Evergaol)
Floating above this spring is the 3rd Wise Beast
Face southwest while standing inside the spiritspring then jump and you should land on the turtle and solve the riddle:
“The Seal on the rise opened”
Further Northwest to Ringleader’s Evergaol
Prepare for the toughest boss we’ve faced yet: Alecto, Black Knife Ringleader
Equip the full Briar Armor Set, it is very effective against this boss. Alecto has very low poise, so with this armor set on, whenever we roll into her, she’ll be interrupted and take some damage. Extremely useful.
Also equip Carian Knight’s Shield
I’ll show you how to defeat Alecto reliably:
Alecto Strategy (check video): Melee her with Dark Moon Great Sword, use Carian Retaliation whenever she uses her red flame ranged attack, wait for her jump/slam attack to backstab her safely. Always keep your distances, sprint away, especially when she does her red flame jump/slam attack, this is the real threat.
Warning: you will die a few times to this boss while you learn to dodge his abilities. This is a normal process. I died more than 10 times on this boss on my first playthrough. If you really struggle too much, just move on and come back later when we’ll be even stronger than now. She drops one of the best summons in the game but we already got the best one: Mimic Tear. When you kill her you’ll get this reward:
  • Black Knife Tiche (great assassin summon, very elusive and high damage)
Trophy Progression: Legendary Ashen Remains 4/6
Warp back to Altar South
Rest and level up
Enter Chelona’s Rise, go to the top, open chest:
  • Ranni’s Dark Moon (6 out of 7 Spells for the Legendary Sorceries and Incantations Achievement)

Warp to Erdtree Gazing Hill
Ride north until you reach Old Altus Tunnel, use Stonesword Key to enter
== Old Altus Tunnel Walkthrough  ==
To the right when entering:
  • 3x Explosive Stone Clumps
Lift down, at the bottom: Site of Grace: Old Altus Tunnel
Move down the first tunnel until you reach a shack, kill firethrower and dog

Hug right wall, ladder up, next room with another shack:
  • Boltdrake Talisman +1 (in the shack, guarded by 2 dogs)
  • Stanching Boluses (behind shack)
Left side of shack is a vein:
  • Somber Smithing Stone [6]
Northwest nook is another vein:
  • Smithing Stone [5]
Back to previous room, drop down on upper scaffoldings, hug right wall:
  • Golden Rune [6] (corpse)
  • Smithing Stone [5] (vein)
Before dropping down, clear the place a little with spells, there are 3 knights and 2 dogs down there

  • Great Club
We’ve cleared pretty much everything outside of the final areas, time to go back to Leyndell
== Altus Plateau and Leyndell ==
Warp to Rampartside Path
West along the path then south to an elevated flat structure with a corpse:
  • Stonesword Key
Prepare for Ancient Dragon Lansseax
He’ll swoop down on us when we go up the hill east
This time we can summon Mimic
Easiest strategy is to stay on horse and use spells (Stars of Ruin for mobility is great, but other spells work just fine)
  • Lansseax’s Glaive
North at the edge of the cliff you’ll find the ghost painter to solve the “Champion’s Song” painting and get your reward:
  • Harp Bow
Southwest to find a scarab roaming near the swords, kill it:
  • Ash of War: Lightning Ram
Northwest to monument where you’ll be attacked by a boss: Black Knife Assassin
Summon Mimic as soon as the Summon Sign is available, heal up, buff up, engage
This enemy’s moveset is very similar to Alecto, but he’s much weaker, should be an easy fight with mimic helping too
  • Black Knife
Open door, lift down to Site of Grace: Sainted Hero’s Grave

    Found the solution to my previous issue. I never bought the food from him on the first visit and i am fairly certain it’s not in the guide to do so unless it’s on the video format only (which i don’t watch them unless i get stuck with some of the wording used). He’s there now after i went back to the lakes and bought some.

    Sorry to keep adding comments. So the last part of this chapter (100/part 5) It says to find blackguard at the lake. I can tell I’m in the right spot. There’s messages from other players, etc. But no sign of him. I’ve followed the guide to a T at this point and he’s not here. (this is actually the 2nd time going through it just to be safe, and he’s not here)

    I’m actually correcting some things when I record the episodes, so if I released all my notes it wouldn’t be the truly optimized guide you’ve been having until now.

    Aug 14, 2022 @ 5:12 am

    Hey man is there any way you can release the full written guide by itself along with these broken down parts?

    @Charles Moral

    I reckon it will take 150 to 170 episodes to finish everything 100%
