Introduction

This gameplay guide aims to provide you with everything you need to know in a optimised manner in order to simplify the road to acquiring all the trophies required for Platinum. Everything has been combined into an all-in-one walkthrough that focuses on the bare minimum requirements.

At the end of the Walkthrough is a bonus PS4 to PS5 autopop New Game + section. Also useful if you need to run NG+ again because you missed something or was unable to acquire all endings in a single playthrough due to not having the means to do so.

A objective/checklist hybrid layout is used along with manually edited maps with markers to better give you directions of what to do and where. More detail is given where required and videos are provided in each section with commentary if watching the route via gameplay is more preferred or even just for extra confirmation for certain steps.

The FAQ section below should answer any questions you have before you begin, so please check that first and for anything else, you will likely find your answer while using the guide.

Thanks for visiting the walkthrough and above all, just enjoy the game!

FAQ


Does the game provide any tutorials and what do the colored words represent through the walkthrough? 

Yes, unlike past From Software titles, this game provides some very helpful tutorial windows which is why none have been provided here. You also have a tutorial-type dungeon which you can find down a hole on the right after you spawn into the Stranded Graveyard for the first time.

For the color coding used to highlight some of the text throughout the walkthrough, the representations are as follows:

Color

Meaning

Red
Bosses or information of the upmost importance.
Blue
Anything related to a objective number from the maps provided.
Green
NPCs mentioned will always be this color so you don't miss any important interactions.
Orange
Sites of Grace to make it easy to identify when the guide is referring to one.
Purple
Marked locations, again to make it easy to identify when the guide is referring to one.
Brown
Legendary equipment required for trophies.
Bold
Any equipment, Key Items, Tools, Ashes etc that can be collected.

You've mentioned a lot of Golden Rune pickups throughout the guide, but haven't stated how much each give. Could you make a list please as it allows us to look ahead a little then?

Sure, find below a table listing what each rune gives you when consumed or sold to a Blacksmith.


If I was to get the overwhelming urge to farm so that I could power level, what attributes should I be levelling to keep in line with the walkthrough?

Nothing wrong with being overpowered, though of course it's not for every gamer! We do respec at one point approximately halfway through the game, so below will be a list of what you would increase first and then what you would increase after the respec. The attributes with a '+' symbol beside them means it is always beneficial to level these further, the numbers below are just a baseline you should meet as a minimum. If you do decide to level a attribute quite high, going above 60 will give very minimal gains and may be better to then focus on another attribute.

I've just discovered your guide, though I would prefer something a little more general so that I can follow loosely on my own, do you have any in mind?

Here on PSNProfiles, this is not the only guide provided by the helpful community. You have 2 very good Trophy Guides to choose between and also a 100% walkthrough which pretty much lists everything in the game for the passionate completionists. You can find these via the Guide page for this title or alternatively, click on the links below.




You seem to go to Mohgwyn Palace early by utilising online invasions briefly, how will this affect the walkthrough if I'm unable to do this?

We do this to unlock the fastest and best farming spot in the game as early as possible. A few other items are collected while in the area, but the main reason is for the rune farming. If you're unable to do this, then it just means you will need to avoid this step and will need to farm by other means if you wish to until we reach Mohgwyn Palace the normal way much later on.

Information about these options will be provided when necessary so you would just follow which ever is best for you and the routing throughout the guide doesn't incorporate farming anyway. The farming option is purely provided for the player in case you are finding the game a little difficult and want to level up a bit more in order to ease the difficulty.

What are Golden Seeds and Sacred Tears and are they infinite?

Golden Seeds increase how many flasks you have and Sacred Tears increase how much they replenish, this is done at a grace site. They are infinite in the sense that they respawn each NG+, but they are limited in each playthrough. Despite them respawning in subsequent playthroughs, they do have a limit. Golden Seeds can only be used until you have 14 x Flasks, and Sacred Tears can only be used until you have +12.

When it comes to the healing (crimson flask), even if you increase your health to a point where it is higher than what a maxed out flask can heal, higher Vigor is always a good idea as it means you can survive for longer.

However, when it comes to refilling FP (cerulean flask), a maxed out flask will replenish FP x 220 so having much more than this becomes a waste of levels and having much less than this becomes a waste of flasks. The reason is because if you're Mind is at a level where it can only hold FP x 110 and you used a maxed out flask (FP x 220), you are effectively wasting 50% of that flask!

Are you open to adding more useful questions here should be any be recommended?

Sure, the more info the better! If there is anything you think could be very helpful, please mention it in the comments section of the walkthrough.

Build


The build we will be utilising throughout the walkthrough will be quite fluid and evolving as we go. Even to the point that we will respec approximately halfway through from a mage build to a melee build. Magic can still be very powerful later on, it just eventually gets to the point where it requires more experience to use, hence why we change to a less experience required build.

As with most From Software titles, you would usually have to learn the move-sets of the enemies to have any chance in surviving, but the beauty of these builds is that there is not much requirement to learn them. Although we are using ranged spells and then switching to a weapon with a ranged ability, we will always be using a shield as well. The general way to use these builds is to block with your shield when an enemy is attacking and wait for a window to attack, always being ready to block when necessary.

Summons will compliment this build because you can block while the enemy is attacking you, then return to attacking when the enemy focuses on your summons. There are some instances where attacks are to strong or the enemy can grab you and so blocking will not work, but this doesn't happen very often at all.

Everything listed below will all be used at some point and some of the equipment may be fairly poor when used by itself. Having all the information on what we use and why can give you some necessary insight as well as the knowledge should you decide to alter things yourself.

Starting Class

This doesn't matter too much, though take in mind that if you select a different class, your levelling up path may be a little different early in the game and you may need to improvise a little to keep track with the build advised. The main benefits of selecting the class below is that it's closest stat-wise to what we level up fast and it starts with a Finger Seal, which otherwise you would need to purchase from the Twin Maiden Husks in Roundtable Hold.

Weapons

Not too diverse, these will rotate as we go progress through the game, listed below is a approximate order we acquire them along with further details.

Weapon
- Name -
Location

Details
07995b.jpg
- Finger Seal -

You start with this as the Confessor class, otherwise it's purchased from the Twin Maiden Husks in Roundtable Hold.
This is a pretty lacklustre seal, is mainly used because it's the earliest and cheapest you can get and all this is used for are buffs and debuffs. Because this isn't used for offensive incantations, the damage doesn't matter.
5ca183.jpg
- Erdtree Seal -

In the center of volcano Manor, this is located inside a cell next to a large fire in the town square.
Has 0 weight, but the main reason we switch to this later on is just to have a higher damaging seal should you desire one for offensive spells.
a4953b.jpg
- Reduvia -

Acquired from killing the invader Bloody Finger Nerijus in Limgrave
Used only to kill the early sleeping dragon to gain a quick boost in levels. Its blood effect allows the dragon to be killed at a very low level.
21cddd.jpg
- Meteorite Staff -

Found in the Streets of Sages Ruins in Caelid. This is on a corpse hanging over a window ledge in the southwest corner.
This staff begins with an S scaling as default in intelligence and also further boosts gravity-type sorcery. Due to these characteristics, this is one of the best early-midgame staffs with the right spells and doesn't even need upgrading!
6625c5.jpg
- Moonveil -

A reward from killing the boss in the Gael Tunnel cave in Limgrave, East.
Not really used much with the build, is solely acquired just to give the player a decent means of melee which also benefits from our early build.
ea5f08.jpg- Serpent-Hunter -

In the boss arena of Rykard, Lord of Blasphemy located in Volcano Manor.
This weapon is used solely for the Rykard fight as its special becomes more powerful during that battle, making the fight a lot easier.
6fd25d.jpg
- Blasphemous Blade -

Trade the Remembrance of the Blasphemous with Finger Reader Enia in Roundtable Hold. This remembrance is acquired from defeating Rykard, Lord of Blasphemy approximately 1/3 into the game.
When this is implemented into the build, it requires a respec to use, but it's one of the very best beginner friendly weapons. Its ash of war (Taker's Flame) heals the player as well as the Mimic Tear summon. It's also very easy to buff and knocks down almost all humanoid enemies, even bosses!
7c08b6.jpg
- Sacred Relic Sword -

Trade the Elden Remembrance with Finger Reader Enia in Roundtable Hold. This remembrance is acquired from defeating the very last story boss of the game.
Use almost solely for farming runes at the best spot in the game. The downside to this weapon is how late it's acquired, but its ash of war (Waves of Gold) has a very wide range which is great for farming enemies quickly.

Shields

Often ignored by a lot of players, perhaps because early game there are not many great shields to choose from. These come in very useful in Elden Ring as they prevent the need to learn a lot enemies move-sets because you can just block. It is also very simple in this game to change a shield affinity giving it more blocking defence against certain elements.

Shield
- Name -
Location
Details
36263e.jpg
- Blue Crest Heater Shield -

The Confessor starts the game with this.
This is only used until we gain the next shield because this is the shield we start with. Any shield can be used really instead of this should you wish to switch.
01d9f7.jpg
- Fingerprint Stone Shield -

Found in the Subterranean Shunning Grounds in Lyndell. After the boss of the area, you can pass through a secret passage leading you to a shaft, you will find this at the end of a path in the wall not far from the very bottom.
The best shield of the game! It's heavy but it's blocking ability more than makes up for it. Not everything can be blocked, but can pretty much block 90% of attacks with very little stamina deduction. Even the fearsome Malenia, this can block all of her attacks except for the rot flower!

Ashes of War

Implemented as a form of support, a lot of these can pretty much change the tide of battle by a huge margin, some are that good. There are so many to obtain, some are unique and it can get overwhelming, but the ones below are the only interchangeable ones that we use. 

Ashes of War
- Name -
Location
Details
1d46e5.jpg
- Bloodhound Step -

Found in Dragonbarrow, a Night's Cavalry boss-type enemy drops this.
This almost doubles your dodging distance and efficiency, improves your invincibility frames and the best thing is that your weight doesn't even affect this. The downside is that it uses FP, but it more than makes up for it.
9a8331.jpg
- Golden Vow -

A mounted knight enemy drops this near a cliff-edge in Limgrave, West.
This buffs your attack as well as your defense, works with almost everything and can be acquired very early in the game. Eventually we get a incantation version of this, but this works just a well until we do, just means you need this slotted on a light weapon.
e23162.jpg
- Hoarfrost Stomp -

A invisible Scarab drops this in a pool of water east of the Caria Manor in Liurnia, West.
This used to be very broken on patch 1.00, however, it has one single use here: to reveal a invisible bridge we must cross later. 
cbfd09.jpg- No Skill - 

Bernahl sells this for 600 runes at the Warmaster's Shack in Limgrave, West.

Having no skill perhaps sounds like a waste of time at first glance, but this is placed on our shield later so that we can use the right-hand special while a shield is equipped. Without this, if a shield has a skill, it will override the right-hand skill and you will need to un-equip the shield to use it.

Spells

Most of these are situational, Rock Sling is used for early game, Rotten Breath is used on certain enemies that resist your current build and the others are to buff yourself when necessary.

Spell
- Name -
Location
Details
61ce5a.jpg
- Rock Sling -

Found in the Streets of Sages Ruins in Caelid. Inside a chest down in the northwest cellar.

This sorcery is very broken considering how early you can acquire it. Its damage is increase via the Meteorite Staff and this actually deals physical damage, not magic believe it or not. So the buffs we acquire can be used for this and another great aspect is that this does a lot of poise damage.
547306.jpg
- Rotten Breath -

Purchased from the Cathedral of dragon Communion in Caelid for 1 x Dragon Heart.
This can be charged and when it is, inflicts rot on almost anything that isn't immune. Rot is basically a overpowered version of poison and once inflicted, will usually drain 45% of a enemies health bar before it wears off. For some bosses that can be tricky to defeat without a lot of practice, this comes in very useful.
07e42c.jpg
- Flame, Grant Me Strength -

Around the back of Fort Gael in Caelid.
This can be found mega early in the game and buffs your attack power and your fire attack power. For any fire-orientated builds, this is a must-have addition.
5bb3c8.jpg
- Flame, Cleanse Me -

Found in Limgrave, East inside a small enemy encampment.
This is support to cure rot or poison should you ever be inflicted by them.
32ca7b.jpg
- Golden Vow -

Found inside a small shack on the northern side of mt, Gelmir.
This is exactly the same as the Ash of War with the same name. This is the incantation version and so can be used as a spell instead of having to equip a weapon everytime.
c951af.jpg
 - Lord's Divine Fortification - 

The Twin Maiden Husks will sell this once you have defeated Maliketh, the Black Blade.
We use this on the final boss only and almost every element has a similar spell. This gives you approximate 50% defence against holy attacks which is extremely useful against the final boss who does a lot of these and hits hard.

Talismans

These will gradually be acquired as you go through the game and you can only equip 1 talisman to begin with eventually opening up to 4 talismans at much later on.

Talisman
- Name -
Location
Details
5c8073.jpg
- Shabriri's Woe -

Starting keepsake, can also be found in Liurnia, East.
This causes the wearer to attract enemies attention more often. This is very good when combined with the Mimic Tear ash as it will cause enemies to attack it more often.
668533.jpg
- Radagon's Soreseal -

Found inside Fort Faroth in Dragonbarrow.
This raises some of your stats and is used once, and that is to reach the requirement to wield the Reduvia without more levelling.
ba1fd9.jpg
- Gold Scarab -

Defeat the boss in the Abandoned cave in Dragonbarrow to acquire this.
Increases the runes you earn by 20%. Perhaps seems like a waste to begin with, but will make a massive difference in the long run. You can actually spare a talisman slot and avoid equipping this if you're quick by equipping this as soon as you beat a boss for the extra gains.
582c1d.jpg
- Graven-School Talisman -

Found inside Fort Faroth in Dragonbarrow.
Gives approximately a 4% boost so isn't a big difference but because it improves spell damage, it increases the physical damage that Rock Sling does.
b1bd7b.jpg
- Warrior Jar Shard -

Found inside Fort Faroth in Dragonbarrow.
Increases the power of your weapon skills (ashes of war) by 10%. This is a must-have when using the blasphemous blade special and this can be acquired very early in the game as well. A better version is available, but requires following the a quest-line to the end.
db8055.jpg
- Dragoncrest Greatsheld Talisman -

Found inside Fort Faroth in Dragonbarrow.
Increases physical damage by 20%, Purely situational and normally something else is used instead of this, but can be useful at times.
55e75c.jpg
- Greatsheld Talisman -

Found inside Fort Faroth in Dragonbarrow.
Improves your shields guard boost by 10%, this affects how much stamina is deducted when blocking. Almost always needed when using the Fingerprint Stone Shield to make it even better at blocking.
3c9213.jpg
- Ritual Sword Talisman -

Found inside Fort Faroth in Dragonbarrow.
Increases your attack power by 10% and is fairly easy to get. Once acquired, should always be used for tough battles where possible to increase your damage per second.

Ashes

These are support NPCs that you can summon in battles where the summon signs appears, luckily in 90% of boss fights.

Ashes
- Name -
Location
Details
7d56cb.jpg
- Lhutel the Headless -

Obtained once you defeat the boss in Tombsward Catacombs in Weeping Peninsula.
This is a good summon to begin with as it telelports around making it difficult to hit and so survives for longer. We manage to get this upgraded to +5 before the better summons become available.
e7a3ea.jpg
- Mimic Tear -
Found inside a chest behind a Stonesword Key door deep inside Nokron, Eternal City.
Considered by a lot of players to be the best summon, this ash copies your loadout so is as good as you make him. The Shabriri's Woe talisman and Blasphemous Blade work good with him as the bosses will target it more and it can heal itself as well.
214d98.jpg
- Black Knight Tiche -

Obtained from beating the boss in the Ringleader's Evergaol in Liurnia, West.
Used when Mimic Tear dies too fast, Black Knight Tiche is very good at evading enemies and deals a lot of bleed damage. Tiche  is that strong that she can almost solo a lot of bosses.

Wondrous Physick Tears

Similar to your Flasks, this is a one-use item that refills each time you rest at a grace site. You can acquire various Physick Tears by killing various tree-like bosses around the map, though those listed below are all that are really used in this build.

Tear
- Name -
Location
Details
a7fb02.jpg
- Greenburst Crystal Tear -

Kill the Putrid Avatar at the Minor Erdtree near the far northeast cliff in Limgrave, East.
Increase your stamina regeneration for 3 minutes so is a good tear to use for any build.
fa2c18.jpg
- Flame-Shrouding Cracked Tear -

Dropped from the same enemy as the Greenburst Crystal Tear above.
Improves fire damage +20% for 3 minutes. Even though this is a single use until you rest, it's great to use when going into boss battles with the Blasphemous Blade.
b55cc9.jpg
- Purifying Crystal Tear -

Defeat Eleonora, Violet Bloody Finger at the Second Church of Marika in Altus Plataeau.
This tear has a single use and that is to make the Mohg, Lord of Blood boss significantly easier.

Levelling Table

Below is a table displaying what is needed for each level,  calculated up to level 130 as this is approximately where you will be when you finish the platinum if doing no farming along the way. The rows going down indicate the start of each tenth and going from left to right will be the ones within that tenth as they increase and then back to the new tenth on the row below.

  2. Then jump off to the south when you reach the first ledge and carry on south a little further to find the Schoolhouse Classroom site of grace.
  3. After unlocking the site of grace, use it to memorize rotten breath if not already. Also make sure you have rock sling memorized and add any flasks as we won't accessing a grace site until after the next boss, so ready up here. Make sure you have at least 6 x Cerulean Flasks allocated.
  4. One more thing to do before we move on is to go into your Inventory, then Item Crafting and craft Sleep Pots x 6 as we will be using them for this upcoming boss fight and you can only craft outside of battle.

Objective 4

  1. Now get back on the large platforms and use them to reach the bottom of the area.
  2. At the very bottom, let the Iron Maiden grab you and kill you while inside it which will warp you to the Volcano Manor.

VOLCANO MANOR


Objective 1

  1. Head southeast along the lava and drop down to the southwest at the lowest point, make sure you have bloodhound step ready. This jump looks like it’s too high, but it isn’t.

Objective 2

  1. Now get the Golden Rune (9) x 1 beside the old fountain to the west, try to stay on land where possible. 
  2. If you go up the ladder to the west, you will reach a locked door. Go to the end of this ledge and look left to see a balcony, you can jump over to this. Then head south into the building and into the doorway opposite to find the Guest Hall site of grace.

Objective 6

  1. Head up some more stairs to the north, ignore the Cathedral entrance as it will trigger a boss fight and push the lever just past it to activate a bridge.
  2. Quit/reload to despawn any alert enemies,
  3. Also, you only have finite amount of the required ingredients for Sleep Pots, so it would be a good idea to save backup now so that if you fail here too many times, you can simply restore your save. There will be another boss similar to this later where any unused Sleep Pots could come in useful again!

Objective 7

  1. The way to defeat this upcoming boss fairly easily, is to first summon your ashes and let Lhutel do some of the work, then when Lhutel dies, put the boss to sleep. Cast sleep by using the Sleep Pots but make sure the boss isn’t too mobile when you throw it as it needs to stand in the dust for a second or 2. Once it’s asleep, use rotten breath to cast rot, then put it to sleep again, then leave it and watch it’s health decrease. Once rot wears off, put the boss to sleep and cast it once more, it will likely take 2 casts of rotten breath to kill it.
  2. Once ready, backtrack slightly up the stairs and into the Cathedral to find the boss Godskin Noble. Defeat him to acquire:
    • Runes x 50000.
    • Godskin Stitcher x 1.
    • Noble Presence x 1.
    • Temple of Eiglay site of grace.
  3. Once the boss is defeated, level up to lv 54 if not already with the following:

  1. Rest at the grace and place the following in your Physick Mix:
    • Purifying Crystal Tear (helps immensely with the upcoming boss).
    • Opaline Hardtear.
  2. While still resting, assign 6 x Crimson Flasks and 7 x Cerulean Flasks.
  3. Use the elevator to the south to be taken to the arena of the boss Mohg, Lord of Blood
    • For the upcoming fight, make sure you have Black Knight Tiche for your ashes. Black Knight Tiche will need to do most the work here as this boss is heavily resistant to fire attacks.
    • Other than the rotten breath attack mentioned below, we will not be attacking, so have the Shabriri's Woe talisman equipped so the boss targets you more and just evade his attacks with Bloodhound Step.
    • Equip your seal in your left-hand and your Bloodhound Step weapon in your right so they are both always ready to go.
    • The boss can be inflicted with rot, but wait until he does his attack which marks the start of phase 2. The arena will turn red, he will raise his spear, stand still for about 8 seconds and repeatedly spawn blood everywhere. He will usually perform this attack sometime after dropping below 50% hp. As soon as he begins doing this is when you want to start inflicting rot, it will usually take 2 full casts of rotten breath to inflict it.
    • Because this boss drops a lot of runes, slot a Gold-Pickled Fowl Foot ready, then as soon as the boss dies, be sure to use this. Enter the battle with the Gold Scarab equipped so you only need to worry about using the Fowl Foot quickly.
  4. Once ready, enter the arena and defeat the boss Mohg, Lord of Blood for the following:
    • Runes x 420000 (655200 with rune buffs).
    • Mohg’s Great Rune x 1.
    • Remembrance of the Blood Lord x 1.
    • Cocoon of the Empyrean site of grace.

Objective 5

  1. Rest at the grace, go into the ashes tab and change the Fingerprint Stone Shields affinity back to Standard.
  2. Summon Black Knight Tiche for this upcoming boss. Beware her attack signalling the start of phase 2 where she will hover and then dive down and spawn a rot flower. To dodge this, raise your shield and move backwards and be cautious as she can do this again. Other than the rot flower, block eveything else.
    • Don't buff yourself with anything other than the Wondrous Physick so you can focus more on attacking and blocking.
    • Take the Flame, Cleanse Me incantation into the battle so that you can cure rot if it ever builds up completely.
    • Also, because this boss drops a lot of runes, slot a Gold-Pickled Fowl Foot ready, then as soon as the boss dies, be sure to use this. Enter the battle with the Gold Scarab equipped so you only need to worry about using the Fowl Foot quickly.
  3. Now go through the boss fog ahead and defeat the boss Malenia, Blade of Miquella along with the Malenia, Goddess of Rot boss afterwards for the following:

Always run away for the 2nd phase unless he is doing a ground attack that you can block.  Wait until he is attacking your summon or after he is recovering from an attack before you attack yourself. He tries to grab you a lot in his 2nd phase which you can only avoid by being out of range or dodging, so we go with the former which is the easier to do.
  3. Defeat this boss along with the boss Hoarah Loux, Warrior for the following:
    • Runes x 300000.

    • Take the Lord's Divine Fortification incantation into the battle and keep this always active as it provides a lot of defense against the upcoming bosses attacks. Don't use any other buffs other than the Wondrous Physick.
    • For the Radagon, use Blasphemous Blade specials and block his attacks.
    • For Elden Beast, use normal R1 swings, while blocking or dodging where necessary. Most the attacks can be blocked, but you want to try to run away from it's holy flame breath and the multiple projectiles it shoots straight upwards which will rain down on you shortly after. The other attack you want to try and dodge is the ring, when you see a large ring around you, break your lock-on the enemy, then run and jump over these out of the ringed area. Mostly everything else can be blocked.
    • Also, because this boss drops a lot of runes, slot a Gold-Pickled Fowl Foot ready, then as soon as the boss dies, be sure to use this. Enter the battle with the Gold Scarab equipped so you only need to worry about using the Fowl Foot quickly.

PS4 - PS5 NG Autopop Walkthrough



Ideally, you want to have a save file which is after defeating Elden Beast, but before completing any endings. This will mean that when you transfer your save to the PS5, you can get all 3 endings to begin with and not have to worry about fighting Elden Beast in NG .

You also want to make sure you have all the Legendary equipment required for trophies and that you have a weapon ready to max upgrade along with the required Smithing Stone.

Attribute

Level


Vigor
40

Another recommended task to do is to reach level 200 and raise the following attributes, still using the same late-game build. Anything extra, increase Endurance and Vigor further.
Mind
40
Endurance
35
Strength
48
Dexterity
45
Intelligence
9
Faith
50
Arcane
12

The final task is to raise the level of the Serpent-Hunter a little more to make it more effective against Rykard once we meet him again. Taking the weapon to 9 should be more than efficient if you want to conserve those Ancient Dragon stones.

Weapon Upgrade

Material Cost

Rune Cost

Serpent-Hunter +6
Somber Smithing Stone (6) x 1
2275
Serpent-Hunter +7
Somber Smithing Stone (7) x 1
2600
Serpent-Hunter +8
Somber Smithing Stone (8) x 1
2925
Serpent-Hunter +9
Somber Smithing Stone (9) x 1
3250

One final thing to bear in mind is that once you travel into NG , you will lose all Bell Bearing progress and Key Items. So any Bearings you have given to any vendors to expand their stock, will be reverted when you move into NG and will need collecting again. Have a careful look at any expanded stock first and be sure you buy sufficient amounts of whatever you think you may use again in the next playthrough.


Assuming you have followed the preparation guidelines mentioned further up, go into the PS5 version and convert the save, this is a option found on the Title Screen. Once you have done so and have loaded up in your End-Game save just after defeating Elden Beast as advised, perform the tasks below.
  1. Acquire the Elden Lord ending by interacting with the Marika statue at the Fractured Marika grace site.
  2. Convert the same save again from the PS4.
  3. Now interact with the Ranni summon sign beside the Marika statue and get the Age of the Stars ending.
  4. Convert the save once again from the PS4.
  5. Go over to any grace site, open the stash and place one of each of the Legendary items to get the respective trophies (Weapon/Ashes/Talisman/Spell).
  6. Head over to any Blacksmith next and fully upgraded any weapon to get the upgrade trophy.
  7. Then once done, warp to the Frenzied Flame Proscription site of grace in Leyndell, take of your armor and interact with the large door ahead to become burnt.
  8. Now warp back to the Fractured Marika grace and touch the Marika statue for the final ending, Lord of Frenzied Flame.
  9. Assuming there is nothing else to do, now go into NG and move onto Part 2.

Below are the Trophies you should have acquired above in part 1 and before moving into NG
