    Elden Ring Leyndell Catacombs Complete Guide

    Elden Ring gives you an opportunity to explore a number of exhilarating places, some of these are dungeons that hold precious items. Leyndell Catacombs is a massive underground mausoleum found beneath the Royal Capital. You will have to solve your way through this maze to fight the boss. 

    In this guide, we will help you find your way through the Leyndall Catacombs so you can defeat Esgar, the Priest of Blood.

    Since you are in Leyndell you may want to collect the sacred tears in the area for Health and FP boost.


    The passage to these catacombs is through the Subterranean Shunning-Grounds. Head southeast from the Underground Roadside site of grace to the area where you can see the pipes. 

    Use these pipes to drop down and advance towards the south to find a crack in the wall past the Giant Lobsters. The entrance to the catacombs can be found through the cracks. An alternate way to access the catacombs is via Leyndell, Ashen Capital version of the Royal Capital.


    These are some of the items you will find here:

    • Golden Rune 
    • Grave Violet
    • Sacramental Bud

    Room with Zombies

    From the Site of Grace, head down the steps and turn left at the locked doors.  As you make your way through the corridor, you will come across a room with flaming zombies.
