As soon as you reach the first open area of Pandora you’ll find Borderlands 3 Eridian Writing hidden around, each one prompting you to read it, but with no result when you actually press the E key. Eridian Writing is one of the countless Borderlands 3 collectibles that you can gather up for piecemeal progress, but unlike the majority of collectibles and side quests in Borderlands 3, you’ll have to wait until pretty much the end of the main campaign before you’re able to actually read Borderlands 3 Eridian Writing.
Because of that, we’re going to preface this quick guide with a little spoiler warning. We won’t go into any major plot points, but there are still a few little secrets to spill to break this one down for you.
So, while you may have spotted some Eridian Writing around Pandora in the Droughts and Bluffs areas. You’ll just have to make it down on your map and return to it later on. We’ve not managed to find all the Eridian Writings just yet, so hopefully there’s a decent reward for all this backtracking, but we do know that you’ll get a nice sum of Borderlands Eridium for studying each scrawling, which you can use to buy some Borderlands 3 legendary weapons.
What do you do with Eridian Writing in Borderlands 3?
You can read Borderlands 3 Eridian Writing by using the Eridian Analyzer, which if you’re reading this you probably don’t have. You get this item from one of the last vaults in the game, so if you’re wondering how long it takes to beat Borderlands 3 our best guess is between 25 and 30 hours.
So just keep clearing through the main campaign until you get your cel-shaded mitts on this artifact, and then it’s time to return to all those Eridian Writings you passed on previous planets.
So far, we know of a couple of Eridian writing locations on Pandora you can visit. The first one is in the Ascension Bluff area. You can find this at the southern tip of the map, on the east side. Look for a small diamond crest on a great big grey wall.
There is also a piece of Eridian Writing in The Droughts area of Pandora. This is in the north half of the open area, once there head west and then south and you should find a long tunnel that opens up into a mining area – scour this spot for a small tunnel where you can find this Eridian Writing.
