Want to find the Elden Ring Divine Towers? These mysterious monoliths are where you awaken the main six Great Runes, which are dropped by the key bosses, also known as Demigods.
Before you can make use of an Elden Ring Great Runes’s power, you’ll first need to awaken it at one of the five Divine Towers located on the map. Each Great Rune can only be awakened at a specified Divine Tower, which is listed in the Rune’s description. Note that there are a few Great Runes that are not dropped by Elden Ring bosses and don’t need awakening at a Divine Tower as they’re used for other mysterious purposes. Here’s everything you need to know about Elden Ring’s Divine Towers and where to find them.
Elden Ring Divine Towers locations
Here’s where you can find every Elden Ring Divine Tower:
- Divine Tower of Limgrave
- Divine Tower of Caelid
- Divine Tower of East Altus
- Divine Tower of West Altus
- Isolated Divine Tower
- Divine Tower of Liurnia
Divine Tower of Limgrave
The Divine Tower of Limgrave is where you awaken Godrick’s Great Rune. It is located towards the top of the area near the border with Dragonbarrow. You can’t access it via the open world; instead, you need to go back to Stormveil Castle, where you defeated Godrick.
Go back into the legacy dungeon itself, defeat the Lion Guardian, and go through the doors it was protecting (roughly in the northeast section) which leads to a bridge. There you must beat three Guardian Golems, one of which fires gigantic arrows at you. Provided you survive, you come to a broken section of bridge, where a teleporter allows you to bypass the rest of the broken bridge segments and drop you at the entrance of the tower.
Divine Tower of Caelid
The Divine Tower of Caelid is where you awaken Radahn’s Great Rune. It’s in Dragonbarrow, northeast of the Deep Siofra Well. This tower requires some careful navigation as you traverse roots, ledges and ladders along the side of the tower. A Godskin Apostle also guards the basement.
Divine Tower of East Altus
The Divine Tower of East Altus is where you awaken both Morgott’s Great Rune and Mohg’s Great Rune, and at the moment is the only Divine Tower where you can awaken more than one Great Rune.
The route to get to this tower is close to where you defeat Morgott. You’re looking to access a long wall in the Capital Outskirts area, which you can access from the east of the Leyndell, Royal Capital area.
Note that in order to enter Leyndell in the first place you will already need to have found and awakened two Great Runes. You also won’t be able to access the route to the tower until you’ve defeated Morgott, so you will need to beat that Demigod first. Specific instructions are available in Dead Zpikes’s YouTube video.
Divine Tower of West Altus
The Divine Tower of West Altus is where you awaken Rykard’s Great Rune. You need to locate the entrance to a sealed tunnel located just outside the lower west entrance to the Leyndell, Royal Capital area to the south of the Altus Plateau. It’s northeast of the Minor Erdtree Church and the tunnel is guarded by the Onyx Lord mini-boss.
Isolated Divine Tower
The Isolated Divine Tower is where you awaken Malenia’s Great Rune. It’s so-called because – as you look at it on the Elden Ring map – it’s right in the middle of the ocean above Dragonbarrow but below the Mountaintops of Giants.
In order to gain entry, you need to head into the centre of the Leyndell, Royal Capital area and look for a Site of Grace known as the West Capital Rampart. From there, look for a teleporter that will send you right to the base of the tower. Specific instructions are available in Dead Zpikes’s YouTube video.
Divine Tower of Liurnia
In order to access this tower, you’re going to need to get through the Ranni quest first. This Divine Tower is connected to the Carian Study Hall, but you won’t be able to cross the bridge until you flip the study hall upside down using the special item. As mentioned earlier, this item is only available during the Ranni quest, so it’s important to tackle that before trying to get to this tower. The Great Rune for this already has already been activated by default, so you don’t need to go to this tower.
