Mortal Shell Eredrim The Venerable Guide

Eredrim the Venerable will probably make you yell “for ze lady” because it makes you look like a Bretonnian knight. This is the tankiest armor set you’ll find in Mortal Shell, and it’s also fun to use. Here’s our guide to help you out.

Mortal Shell: Eredrim the Venerable guide

Location: From Grisha’s Cavern, head to your right and crawl through the tunnel.

Follow the dirt road until you see a foreboding structure in the distance. That actually takes you to the Seat of Infinity zone.

Before you go to that zone, however, go ahead and claim Eredrim the Venerable. Oh, and you can also find the Corrupted Sester vendor NPC nearby.

Stats: Eredrim the Venerable has the highest durability/HP out of all the options in Mortal Shell. Sadly, its resolve and stamina stats are abysmal.

Mortal Shell Eredrim The Venerable Guide 3

Eredrim is both a tanking and DPS machine thanks to most of its perks. For instance, both Accretion of Inheritance and Accretion of Resolve are extremely helpful when you’re just mowing down foes from one area to the next. Accretion of Ascent, meanwhile, is pretty good for staggering enemies, including some of the elite mobs you’ll find.

Still, your biggest concern here would be the low stamina. Even if you have a high health pool, you’re not invulnerable and the hits you take from hostiles, especially bosses, will take a chunk out of you. You also won’t be able to attack and combo as often since you’ll tire yourself out quickly.

Note: Recollection of Knowledge is useless since it requires you to fall off a ledge, harden your shell, and (hopefully) hit someone. The increased AoE radius isn’t a worthwhile buff at all.
