Elden Ring Carian Study Hall guide – The inverted tower
Let’s discuss the inverted version of the Carian Study Hall tower in Elden Ring.
Start by jumping down the elevator shaft to the ledge. Pass through the narrow gap and beware of Spider Hands lurking here.
Again, Preceptor Miriam will show herself. Make sure you can snipe and cancel her spellcasting, too. Miriam will drop the Lucidity Sorcery spell, and you can also pick up the Mask of Confidence at the other side of this section.
Go further ahead until you reach the chandeliers. Make sure you can drop on them so you don’t fall to your doom.
Then, at the beams, walk gingerly as well and be careful here.
Finally, you should reach the upside-down staircase that you saw earlier. You’ll notice a panel that you can step on. This will cause the entire staircase to move down like an elevator.
Open the doorway to reveal the path that takes you to the Divine Tower of Liurnia. Rest at the Site of Grace and be ready.
Elden Ring boss fight: Godskin Noble
If you’ve already beaten Rykard in Volcano Manor, then you’ll know what to expect since this fella’s a miniboss there. If not, then watch out for its stab combos and Deathscourge projectiles. At 50% HP, it will gain new abilities, such as the Rolling Pin and Mighty Butt Crash, both of which will flatten you. Its Deathscourge Nova will also pulse and cause damage before creating a massive blast.
After defeating this foe, you’ll obtain the Godskin Noble armor set.
Proceed all the way to the Divine Tower of Liurnia and take the lift to the top. There, you’ll see a corpse and, instead of activating a Great Rune, you can pick up the Stargazer’s Heirloom and Cursemark of Death. The former is a talisman that increases INT by +5. The latter, meanwhile, is another key item that we’ll be using as part of Ranni’s quest.
All right, for the next part of our guide series, we’ll take a look at another secret underground area that we can access. Let’s head over to Nokstella Eternal City.
Note: The Cursemark of Death is also used to battle Lichdragon Fortissax in Deeproot Depths (yes, it’s also another secret area). Don’t worry since it will still be in your inventory even if you just focus on Ranni’s quest for now.
