How do you get around the Volcano Manor Elden Ring?

Temple of Eiglay – Left of the Site of Grace and altar you will see an elevator you can ride up to the upper level of the temple. Run around the second floor and you will find a Golden Rune in the back. Next walk out onto the outdoor balcony and look down over the edge and you will see a rocky platform covered in more lava slugs.

Drop down, then look for the hidden path behind the nearby Stake of Marika which leads to a Golden Rune, Cross the thin river of lava and you will find a body with Smoldering Butterfly x4. Go up the path and cross the natural bridge that is guarded by four lava slugs. You will find a Furlcalling Finger Remedy on the other side, then down onto the rocks below where you can continue climbing up to the next level of the volcano.

You find yourself looking at a lake of lava, with a set of large buildings to your right. Cross over the lava and you will encounter another Abductor. You can fight it, or just ignore it and jump through the open window behind it. You will find yourself in a large dark room with a broken floor.

Open the door to your right, then look toward the nearby ledge where you will notice a ladder peeking up over the edge. Climb down the ladder where you will find a Drawstring Fire Grease x4, and encounter some more of those crawler enemies as well as two mages. Clear the room then check the prison at the bottom to find Missionary’s Cookbook 6 Go back up the ladder and through the door we opened earlier.

Here you will encounter a new special man-serpent with a fiery sword that can leave damaging flames on the ground. The basic strategy here remains the same but do NOT stand in the fiery remnants or you could get chain stunned into a quick death. Go up the stairs behind the serpent and you will find yourself in another dark room full of crawlers.

  • Advertisement Go through the door to the left of the entrance and you will find an elevator that goes back to the Temple of Eiglay, but you might notice something else as well: a hidden doorway in the elevator shaft, just below the top.
  • Run through the door as the elevator goes past and you will find a secret room with one weak soldier enemy and a Stonesword Key,

Exit this room through the open window to get back outside, then walk along the lava and around the corner to find an Ash Scarab that drops a Somber Smithing Stone when killed. Behind you is another thin rock path that goes underneath some overhanging snake statues.

  1. Walk along this path to find another hidden room that is full of basilisks, but beware the two serpent-men hiding in the lava waiting to ambush you.
  2. Draw them out and kill them first, then carefully take on the basilisks.
  3. You will probably want to draw them out rather than try and fight them all in that small room.

Once you’ve killed them all you can grab the Somber Smithing Stone they were guarding. With all of those enemies out of the way make your way back to the window you came out of and you will see another doorway on the opposite side of the lava. This will lead you to a ledge with a ladder that brings you back up to the walkway above.

Here are a bunch of zombies whose heads explode into poison when killed, so be careful around them. There is also another serpent-man with a whip, but this time it is a fire whip making things even more dangerous. He will swing the whip around spreading lava pools everywhere, so just wait for him to get bored of that any approach you before fighting.

Once the enemies are all out of the way walk out onto the top of the aforementioned snake statues to find a Commoner’s Headband, Before we go through the door behind the whip serpent we need to make one last detour for an item. Go back to the bridge where you encountered that serpent with the flaming sword then peek over the edge.

  1. You will see another secret ledge with an item on it below.
  2. Drop down to grab the Crimson Tear Scarab,
  3. Behind the fire whip serpent is an entrance back into the manor.
  4. Cross through the first room and open the door in the corner to reach what looks like the throne room.
  5. Here you will see a bunch more of those poison zombies, kill them immediately when you walk in and you can grab the Man-Serpent Ashes they were guarding.

Next turn your attention to the two serpent-men up the stairs, and the serpent mage in front of the throne. Draw them out one by one and fight them at the bottom of the stairs, then you can ascend to the throne and kill the serpent mage. He has a lot of health, but is relatively nonthreatening as long as you get in his face and prevent him from casting any spells.

Just beware his slow head slam attack. Killing him will get you the Gelmir Glintstone Staff, Through the door behind the throne is a teleporter to the boss, but we don’t want to go just yet. Instead take the stairs opposite the throne up to the back of the room where you will find a doorway leading to a Stonesword Key door.

Use your keys to open the door and head inside to find yourself at the top of a dark room. It seems like you need to jump across the hanging cages to reach the bottom of the room but that is bait! Instead look over the ledge to the right of the door and you will see a platform lit up below you.

Drop down and enter the nearby door to get into a dark hallway occupied by some serpent-men. Go up the stairs and out the door back into the dark room, where you can walk along what remains of the floor to reach the Dagger Talisman, From here drop down to the cage below, then again onto another broken floor with a mage and a Rune Arc,

Now you can drop down the rest of the cages and make your way to the bottom of the room. The bottom floor is absolutely riddled with those crawling enemies so be ready for an ambush upon landing. Carefully kill all of them then you are free to explore the room.

  1. On one end, you will find a door that leads to a lit up room where you can loot the Ash of War: Royal Knight’s Resolve,
  2. Exit this room and follow the path all the way to the end and you will open up a shortcut back to the Volcano Manor lobby.
  3. Advertisement Return to the dark room and check the opposite side where you will find a Seedbed Curse, a key item you should show to Dungeater,

Go through the nearby door and you will find yourself on a balcony overlooking the Prison Church area, guarded by another Abductor. There is also a Somber Smithing Stone hanging over the edge. With that we have completed our exploration of the volcano manor.

What is the first thing to do in Volcano Manor?

Elden Ring Volcano Manor questline – If you were teleported to Volcano Manor by Rya, speak to the NPC sitting on a chair straight ahead of you. This is Tanith and she’ll ask you to join Volcano Manor. Accept the offer and she’ll hand over the Drawing Room Key.

  • Next, turn around and head down the hallway on your immediate left and use the key on one of the last two doors on the left to access the room.
  • You’ll find a letter on the table instructing you to kill Old Knight Istvan, an NPC in Limgrave.
  • Luckily, his summon sign is now marked on your map so travel to the Warmaster’s Shack Site of Grace and head north.

Defeating Istvan rewards you with the Scaled armor set. Head back to Volcano Manor and speak to Tanith again and she’ll hand over the Magma Shot sorcery. You can now return to the room you unlocked to pick up the next letter. Note: It’s also at this point that you can talk to Bernahl (opens in new tab) in the Drawing Room to receive a letter that starts you on his quest, and Patches (opens in new tab) also hands over a letter if you speak to him in the entrance hall. Tanith gives you the Drawing-Room Key. (Image credit: From Software) Now you need to head to Altus Plateau and defeat Rileigh the Idle, right on the western edge of the area. The quickest way to reach his summon sign is via the Old Altus Tunnel Site of Grace.

Once you exit the tunnel from the lift, head northeast. You get the Crepus’ Vial talisman for defeating him and Tanith will hand over the Serpentbone Blade when you return to the manor. The final letter can now be found in the Drawing Room and instructs you to kill Juno Hoslow, Knight of Blood, an NPC that is part of the requirements to get Diallos (opens in new tab) to move from the manor to Jarburg.

Juno Hoslow’s summon sign is found in the Mountaintops of the Giants region, southwest of Castle Sol and right next to the Lofty Shack. Defeating him gives you the Hoslow’s Oath gesture, his armor set and weapon. Tanith will reward you with the Taker’s Cameo talisman (opens in new tab) for completing this step.

Where does Rya go after killing Rykard?

Elden Ring Rya choice – If you picked up the tonic from Tanith, you’re given a choice when you speak to Rya: If you choose to give Tonic of Forgetfulness, you can return to the manor and tell Tanith what you did for some extra dialogue. Once you go and defeat Rykard and return to the manor (when everyone’s left) Rya will be at her original spot in the drawing room.

Speak to her then reload the area to find the Daedicar’s Woe talisman where she was standing. If you don’t give her the tonic, return to her hiding spot after killing Rykard and talk to her again. Refuse to give the tonic a second time, then reload the area. Rya will have disappeared but you can find Zorayas’s Letter item and the Daedicar’s Woe talisman where she was.

There is a third option, which is to kill her. Doing so means you can loot the Daedicar’s Woe talisman from her body. Obviously, the choice is up to you but the second option seems like the best choice here, You get the talisman whatever you do, but not giving her the tonic means you also get the letter.

Can you still do Volcano Manor after beating Elden Ring?

Finish Up Volcano Manor, Then Head To Leyndell (or Beyond) – How To Explore Volcano Manor Elden Ring After beating Rykard players can no longer progress the Volcano Manor questline, but this implies that they did not finish the questline to reach Rykard in the first place. The Volcano Manor questline rewards players with a variety of neat armor sets, but as soon as their Lord is killed, the Letters from the Manor dry up entirely.

  • For this reason, be sure to finish all of Volcano Manor’s requests before taking on Rykard by taking the teleporter deep into the Legacy Dungeon.
  • If you finished the Volcano Manor questline and didn’t break out into the rest of the Volcano Manor, you can teleport directly to Rykard.
  • However, there are a lot of things in and around Volcano Manor that make it worth checking out the Legacy Dungeon.

To enter this area, break an invisible wall in one of the side rooms of the manor hall and continue to the Prison Town Site of Grace, the first in the larger area. If you have already cleared Volcano Manor entirely, then beating Rykard only really leaves one path forward: Leyndell.
