Elden Ring Multiplayer - All Colosseum Locations

By
Scott Peers

This page details everything you need to know about the new Colosseum Multiplayer mode in Elden Ring, introduced with update 1.08 on 7th December 2022. We’ll cover all of the Colosseum locations in Limgrave, Caelid, and Leyndell, including the statue at the Roundtable Hold which you can use to enter any of the Colosseums after visiting them for the first time.

All Multiplayer Colosseum Locations in Elden Ring

There are three Multiplayer Colosseums to be found in Elden Ring, with one in Limgrave, one in Caelid (Dragonbarrow), and one in Leyndell, Royal Capital. You will need to discover each of these at least once by actually travelling to them and opening the doors before you can access them. After that, you can begin matchmaking in any of them by using the effigy of Marika statue at the Roundtable Hold. There are few differences between these venues other than appearance, but the most significant difference is that you can only summon Spirit Ashes in the Caelid Colosseum at first. However, accessing any of the Colosseums from the Roundtable Hold will allow you to select whether Spirit Ashes are prohibited or not in any venue.

How to Reach the Multiplayer Colosseum in Limgrave

The Limgrave Colosseum is probably the easiest one to get to, and it’ll likely be the first that you encounter when you start a new game. It’s located just north of the Warmaster’s Shack, or east of Stormveil Castle. You can easily get to this one by travelling to the Warmaster’s Shack and then following the path north until you reach the doors of the Colosseum. You need to be careful of the wolves that may spawn on the way, though!

How to Reach the Multiplayer Colosseum in Caelid, Dragonbarrow

The Caelid Colosseum is more difficult to reach, especially if you’re at a fairly low level still. Although you can travel to the southern lands of Caelid early on in the game, it’s not recommended since the enemies here are generally much tougher and higher level than those in Limgrave. There is also a northern part of Caelid named Dragonbarrow, which is even more dangerous than the south in some ways. You can still reach this area early on in the game via the Bestial Sanctum in the northeast of the region, but you need to use the teleporter near the Third Church of Marika in Limgrave. The Bestial Sanctum is also a good area for rune farming early in the game, so if you want to find out exactly how to get there, check our Best Early Game Rune Farming Spot page for a detailed guide.

Although you have access to the Dragonbarrow region via the Bestial Sanctum, the area where the Colosseum is located can only be reached through the Deep Siofra Well Site of Grace, which itself can be found after going down the Siofra River Well, located in southeastern Limgrave, as shown on the map below. Once you’re at the Deep Siofra River Well Site of Grace in Caelid, all you need to do is follow the path northwest to the Colosseum. There will be two Golem Archers along the path, so you will need to defeat them or just run by if you prefer.

How to Reach the Multiplayer Colosseum in Leyndell, Royal Capital

The last Colosseum that you’re likely to encounter is in Leyndell, Royal Capital, in the Altus Plateau region. You will come here as part of the main story so it’s difficult to miss, but the easiest way to get there is by following the winding path upwards from the East Capital Rampart. If your game has already seen the Royal Capital turn into the Leyndell, Ashen Capital, there’s no need to worry. You can still access the Colosseum without any issues.

How Colosseum Multiplayer Game Modes Work - United Combat, Combat Ordeal, Duel

The level of customization for multiplayer battles in the Colosseums is fairly limited at the moment, but you can still choose between three main game modes: United Combat, Combat Ordeal, and Duel. The United Combat mode allows you to play alongside allies with either 4 or 6 total combatants. The Combat Ordeal game mode is more of a free for all, where every player is hostile. You can still temporarily form alliances in this game mode if you wish, which can be particularly useful if you want to overthrow a skilled player… but you will need to get lucky with spontaneous coordination with other players for this. It’s much easier to play in United Combat if you prefer that kind of thing. The Duel mode is simple: it’s a 1 vs 1 situation.

In the United Combat and Combat Ordeal game modes you will have 300 seconds to kill the opposing players as many times as possible. After each death you will respawn, and the team or player with the most kills at the end of the match wins. In the Duel game mode, you will have 180 seconds to defeat the opposing player, and there are no respawns. There are also additional rules for each game mode in terms of flask usage, all of which are shown in the table below.

Mode Players Rules
United Combat 4 or 6 All four or six players are divided into two teams, each team has 300 seconds to score the most kills, Flasks of Crimson and Cerulean Tears are permitted, but limited in number. Spirt Ashes are prohibited unless enabled by the host.
Combat Ordeal 4 or 6 All four or six players are enemies and have 300 seconds to compete for the highest number of kills. Flasks of Crimson and Cerulean Tears are permitted, but limited in number. Spirt Ashes are prohibited unless enabled by the host.
Duel 2 Players fight one on one for 180 seconds until a player is defeated. Flask of Crimson or Cerulean Tears are permitted. Spirt Ashes are prohibited unless enabled by the host.

(1 of 2) You will respawn at the edge of the battle whenever you die in United Combat and Combat Ordeal matches.
