Caelid is an extremely difficult area that is filled with tough enemies and other challenges. One such challenge is getting to the Divine Tower and restoring Radahn’s Great Rune. That is why this guide will show you how to get to the Divine Tower of Caelid in Elden Ring.
Living up to its difficulty, even entering the Divine Tower of Caelid can be quite a hassle. However, worry not because we will show you everything you need to do. With that said, let’s dive right in and get started.
Elden Ring: How to Get to the Divine Tower of Caelid
The Divine Tower of Caelid can be found in the northern part of the region, in Dragonbarrow. You can easily spot this tower even from a distance since there is nothing to block its view. However, getting to it requires a few steps that you need to do first.
Defeat Starscourge Radahn
The first thing you need to do is head over to Redmane Castle in Caelid. Before you get here, make sure that you unlock the Grand Lift to the Altus Plateau so that you can start the festival of Radahn.
Once you do that, head over to the main entrance of the castle and take the portal. This will lead you directly outside the area where you can activate a Site of Grace and talk to Jerren to start the festival.
Now, you can either talk to all the NPCs in the area or make your way down the lift until you reach another portal. Take this portal and you’ll be teleported to a barren area with Radahn in front of you.
The boss fight is extremely fun but it can get a bit tough at times. This is especially true in his second phase if you are not careful enough.
After you defeat him, you will see a few NPCs in the area who you can talk to. You can rest at the nearby Site of Grace as well and use the portal to get back to Redmane Castle.
Platform Your Way to the Tower
After getting Radahn’s Great Rune, you’ll want to make your way to the Divine Tower of Caelid and activate it. You can get to this tower either by completing the puzzle at Sellia, Town of Sorcery, or through the Bestial Sanctum.
Just southwest of the tower, you can activate the Dragonbarrow West Site of Grace. Now, make your way to the large tower that you can see in the distance. Once you get close to it, you’ll notice large branches curled around the tower.
Use Torrent to jump to this location and head over to the small ledge with a ladder. Be careful because there is an enemy that is ready to push you off. Deal with him and climb the ladder to go forward. You might have to mount on Torrent again to jump across the archway.
Continue going forward until you reach another ladder. Climb it and you’ll see a Site of Grace that you can activate to save your progress. From this grace, head west until you come across a lift. Activate the lift and you’ll reach the top of the Divine Tower of Caelid.
How to Restore Radahn’s Great Rune
After reaching the top of the tower, you need to progress forward. The good news is that there is only one way forward and it is extremely simple, so, you cannot get lost while making your way to the Two Fingers.
You will see a symbol that you can interact with next to the Two Fingers. Interact with it and you will see a prompt that says “GREAT RUNE RESTORED“. Also, you will be given Radahn’s Great Rune as well which you can see in your inventory.
What Does It Do?
You’ll want to know what it does now that you have finally activated the Great Rune. Well, the good news is that if you restore it, this Great Rune will allow you to increase your total HP, Stamina, and FP by 15%.
If you are going for a build where you cannot level up stats like Vigor and Endurance (like the Astrologer build), then this Great Rune will help you out a lot. This makes the game a bit easier as you essentially gain free level-ups in these stats. Plus, you can focus on other stats without any worries which is a great thing.
That’s everything you need to know about how to get to the Divine Tower of Caelid in Elden Ring. Getting to this area will be helpful to you since you can increase your total Health, Stamina, and FP by 15%. Surprisingly the game does not tell you how to get here and many players do not restore this Rune.
