Getting to Minor Erdtree Catacombs in Elden Ring

  1. Travel to Summonwater Village Outskirts Site of Grace

    From this location in Eastern Limgrave, follow the road east to Caelid (Tibia Mariner for an eye out, if you haven’t already defected it).

  2. Minor Erdtree Follow The Path.

    Continue along the path, making your way past the Smoldering Church (but don’t actually enter Caelid).

  3. Take The Path To The Base Of The Minor Erdtree.

    To the left, you will find a pathway that leads to the Minor Erdtree. Watch out for the Erdtree Guardians who will ambush you along the way.

  4. Avoid or confront the Erdtree Avatar

    At the base, you will be confronted with an Erdtree Avatar. Either dispatch it, or circle the tree to the right to avoid it.

  5. Open the door to the Minor Erdtree Catacombs

    It’s easy to miss, but there’s a Minor Erdtree behind the door that leads down to the Minor Erdtree Catacombs.

  6. Take the elevator down, use the lever to open the boss door, then take the elevator under the passageway.

    Inside, you can take an elevator to the lower floor of the Catacombs. Make your way through it as normal, and use the lever at the end to open the boss door, and return to the start. Send the elevator back up, roll off the platform and you can access a different part of the Catacombs (pictured below).

  7. Defeat the Erdtree Burial Watchdogs

    The Boss encounter can be a little tricky, as you must contend with two Erdtree Burial Watchdogs simultaneously. The sword-armed one will engage you up close, and the scepter-wielding one will cast spells at a distance from you.

  8. Claim your reward.

    Once you have defended the Erdtree Burial Watchdogs, you will be rewarded with the Mad Pumpkin Head Ashes, a powerful Spirit Ash Summon in its own right.
