Without a tuned build, you won’t have fun in Elden Ring for long. Even with powerful weapons and strong buffs, sudden death lurks everywhere in the intermediate lands. To arm your character against all enemies, you need the right talismans. The legendary talismans are especially useful.
In total, you can find eight legendary talismans in Elden Ring. You get them for defeating strong enemies, completing quests, or finding them in hidden chests. Depending on your character and build, the legendary talismans in Elden Ring will boost your physical damage, talents or defense. In our guide, we’ll introduce you to all eight legendary talismans and show you how to find them.

Once you find the place of mercy “Sewer”, from there you can walk across a huge root that leads over an archway to the roof of a building. In this building you will find a treasure chest with the talisman.
