All Locations in Caelid

Scott Peers

This page contains everything you need to know about the locations in the Caelid region of Elden Ring.

How Many Locations Are There in Caelid?

Caelid is a mostly desolate region, plagued by the corruption of Scarlet Rot, a disease and status effect which is used by some of the enemies you’ll encounter in the region. Caelid is also home to a large number of undead, and many of the enemies here have been mutated by Scarlet Rot, as has the flora and fauna. There are 30 unique locations to be found in Caelid, and numerous Sites of Grace. You can access Caelid from the northeast of Limgrave, where it connects to the region. Although this is relatively close to the starting area, most of the bosses here will be challenging for a low level player.

List of All Map Locations in Caelid

Abandoned Cave

The Abandoned Cave can only be accessed by going through Dragonbarrow, a region in the northern part of Caelid. The cave itself is located just northwest of Sellia Evergaol. You’ll need to access the area from the west using the Spiritspring Jump near the Minor Erdtree in the northwest of Caelid. You can get to this part of the map by using the portal behind the Third Church of Marika in eastern Limgrave. The cave contains the Cleanrot Knight Duo boss, who drops the Gold Scarab. You can also find the Venomous Fang and Serpent Bow here.

Bestial Sanctum

The Bestial Sanctum is in the northeasternmost part of Dragonbarrow, Caelid. The area is guarded by the Black Blade Kindred boss, who drop the Gargoyle’s Blackblade and Gargoyle’s Black Halberd. You’ll also find Gurranq, the Beast Clergyman inside. You can access the area using the Sending Gate behind the Third Church of Marika in eastern Limgrave. Gurranq can be fed Deathroot eight times, in return for the following rewards:

Caelid Waypoint Ruins

The Caelid Waypoint Ruins can be found by following the Caelid Highway South. They’re just southeast of Gaol Cave and Fort Gael. There are no bosses here, but it’s a decent place to farm Rot Grease. You’ll also find the unique Meteoric Ore Blade here, inside a chest in a small room at the back of an underground hall filled with sarcophagi and Prawn Miner enemies.

Caelem Ruins

The Caelem Ruins can be found by following the Caelid Highway in the western part of the map. You’ll find the unique Visage Shield here after defeating the Mad Pumpkin Head Duo boss, who dwell at the back of the ruins. There isn’t much else to see here once you’ve defeated these two, and they don’t drop anything special other than a decent amount of Runes.

Cathedral of Dragon Communion

This unique site is in the southwestern part of Caelid, reached by following the Caelid Highway South. A Banished Knight roams the area, and players can interact with the dragon altar to obtain Incantations by performing the Ritual of Dragon Communion. This consists of offering Dragon Hearts in exchange for specific Incantations, so it functions more like a shop than a ritual. You can obtain six Incantations by default, but you’ll need to defeat seven bosses to obtain the others. The table below details the cost and requirement for each Incantation.

Caelid Catacombs

These Catacombs are located southeast of Cathedral of Dragon Communion. You’ll find the Miranda Sprout Ashes here, and you can obtain the Kindred of Rot Ashes by defeating the Cemetery Shade who dwells here. There isn’t much more to see once you’ve fought through the skeleton enemies, but you will find some Grave Violet, Root Resin, and Grave Glovewort [4] throughout.

Church of the Plague

This church is in eastern Caelid, just southeast from Sellia, Town of Sorcery. You’ll find the NPC Millicent here, a young woman stricken with an incurable case of Scarlet Rot. Gowry will send players to look for her in an attempt to cure her of the disease. There isn’t much else to see here, other than a Sacred Tear which can be found just beneath the Statue of Marika. There are some Prawn Miner enemies in the area, and you’ll find some Sacramental Bud and Smoldering Butterfly.

Deep Siofra Well

Not much to see here, though the well acts as a transportation device from the northeastern part of Siofra River. You’ll need two Stonesword Keys to activate the lift.

Divine Tower of Caelid

This tower can be found in the northern part of Dragonbarrow, Caelid. You’ll find a Godskin Apostle boss here, but it can only be reached by a series of platforming puzzles. There’s a Stonesword Key that can be found outside the tower walls, but you’ll need to be careful as a number of Blackflame Monks and Radahn Knights roam the area. The boss also drops the Godslayer’s Greatsword (Found in a chest behind the boss arena after defeating him) and the Godskin Apostle Set.

Dragonbarrow Cave
