Caelid Catacombs Dungeon Walkthrough – Elden Ring

Caelid Catacombs is a short dungeon populated by skeletons, some aggressive flowers, and flooded with Scarlet Rot. Make sure to craft some Preserving Boluses before going in.

Unique Rewards:

While you won’t find much loot in this dungeon, there is a decent amount of Grave Violets and Grave Glovewort [3], [4] and [5] to find, so make sure to stuff your bags with them as you go through the dungeon.

Grab the site of grace by the entrance and start going through the dungeon. The first room that you reach will be flooded with rot infested waters, and several flowers will pop out as soon as you enter the room. While the flowers themselves aren’t very threatening, not only do they create clouds of rot, rolling through the rot infested wasters will also cover you in Scarlet Rot which will keep building up even on dry land as a result. If that happens, remember that using Soap will prevent it from continuing to build up.

Before fighting the flowers or simply running through, grab the Grave Violet by the room’s entrance, as well as the Grave Glovewort [4] to the left inside of the room. The neat thing about flowers is that while they are weak to fire, you can also run past them as they lack mobility. When you get to the next hallway however, slow down and don’t go for the Grave Glovewort [3] straightaway as a skeleton is waiting to ambush you behind the corner.

Past this hallway, you will reach a fairly big room with even more putrid water. Before going forward, there is a small area below that you should explore first. While it may look like there is nothing to be found, the illusory wall to the right is hiding 2x Grave Glovewort [5] as well as the Miranda Sprout Ashes, and a flower enemy that will die as collateral damage as you’re breaking the wall.

As soon as you picked everything up, run back up the stairs as more flowers will be popping out of the ground, as well a large one that will attack you shortly after. Back where you came from, a skeletal archer will be waiting for you, though it shouldn’t be much of a problem, especially if you have access to holy damage.

Now go back down the stairs, grab the Grave Glovewort [3] in front of the stairs and head towards the big flower behind the corner to the right. While the flower looks menacing, you don’t actually have to kill it. If you decide to kill it, it’s weak to fire, otherwise, grab the Grave Glovewort [3] and [4] behind it and head down the hallway next to it.

This hallway leads to yet another room, but this time the are no more enemies. There are however 2x Grave Glovewort [4] to pick up around the room, as well as another illusory wall hiding the lever that unlocks the way to this dungeon’s boss: the Cemetery Shade.
