The dungeons of Elden Ring are dangerous, with enemies lurking around every corner (you can call them chariots if you feel unlucky). The first dungeon you’ll see is the Fringefolk Hero’s Grave, but you might not notice it. In Elden Ring, here’s how to finish the Fringefolk Hero’s Grave dungeon.
How to Complete the Fringefolk’s Hero’s Grave in Elden Ring?
You’ll notice a fog wall to your right when you arrive at your first Site of Grace. If you don’t know how to break down the wall, you must first obtain a Stonesword Key.
If you want, you can choose one of these as your first gift. To unlock the dungeon, use the key on the gargoyle statue and, in true Dark Souls fashion, prepare to die.
On the other side of the now-foggy archway, go to the bottom of the ladder. Run through the poison as quickly as you can and turn right at the end.
How to Get Past the Chariot?
After turning the corner, a chariot will appear from the slope in front of you. Wait for it to turn around and start running down the hill.
On either side of the slope, there are alcoves where you can hide. Keep an eye out for the enemies that may be lurking inside. Swords are used by some, while crossbows are used by others.
If you want, you can run all the way down the slope and stay on the path. However, ducking into the third alcove on the right is a more convenient option. Jump down to the platform below when the chariot ascends the ramp.
Both paths lead to the same destination, but you have a better chance of surviving if you take the latter. Run down the next slope and hide in an alcove past the point where the ground begins to thin.
You’ll come to a fork in the road as you continue along the path. You can either go up or down the path. The chariot will pursue you in either case, so make your decision quickly.
If you choose to go up, you’ll come to a dead-end with a lone enemy in a small room. This foe is a phantom-like the others, but much more difficult to defeat.
He can be kited out into the hallway and killed by the chariot in an instant. You will receive the Dragon Communion Seal if you kill this enemy.
How to beat the Ulcerated Tree Spirit?
Taking the left path will lead you to the Ulcerated Tree Spirit’s boss room. If this is your first dungeon but you are low-level, do not take on this boss. This boss is difficult to defeat and can easily kill you in a single hit.
Due to its high damage, the Ulcerated Tree Spirit may be too much for you if you enter this dungeon right away. In any case, the Elden Ring boss resembles a massive wooden snake with fleshy limbs that writhe.
Be on the lookout for attacks from its tail, which have long windups, but be sure to dodge into them and stay far enough away to avoid being carried away by its horrible appendage.
It roars and launches into the air, and this is a grab attack that will almost certainly kill you in one strike.
In most cases, after this, the creature will inhale fire, which is your best chance of dealing damage. Avoid its occasional paw swipes by sticking to its left side whenever possible and taking some shrewd swipes from there.
Downward paw stomps are a serious threat if you’re dealing damage to the right side of the target. Stagger it and unleash an antidote to its glowing eye with enough damage.
In the second phase, around two-thirds of its HP, it will glow white and release an explosive AoE that shoots pillars of fire out of the floor. Untarget and flee as fast as you can if you see this happening.
How to Get the Erdtree’s Favor Talisman
Do you remember that path near that thin causeway that led to the second imp? The Elden Ring talisman that can be obtained by completing this side quest is well worth the detour.
You’ll find a flame turret down the stairs after you kill the second imp. As soon as the flames die down, make your way to an alcove and hide, but keep an eye out for the third imp who may be lurking nearby.
After evading the second flame turret, proceed to the next room, which has a bridge inside, and continue on your way.
The roofs of both sides of the bridge are adorned with Grafted Scions. The talisman can be found on the other side, or you can fight your way through them and take it. Your maximum health, stamina, and equipment load are all increased by the Erdtree’s Favour. I did say that the detour was worth it.
