We tell you how to pick up the Talisman of the Holy Tree in Elden Ring – a secret item from the beginning of the game.

At the very beginning of Elden Ring, during the tutorial prologue, you will be able to see a bright secret item in the distance, which at that moment will not be available. This is the Dragon Talisman of the Holy Tree. And it lies there for a reason – you can pick it up a little later. Now we will tell you how.

At the very beginning of the game in this location, you can see the outlines of the Holy Tree Dragon Talisman.

To pick it up, you need to go quite a long way. First, get outside in the Graveyard:

Then turn right, get on the horse and jump to the cliff. Gently jump down, as if sliding down a cliff.

If it doesn’t work the first time and you die, don’t tempt fate and just go down to the left – spend a little more time, but you’ll stay safe. Your task is to be on the beach.

Move along the ruins and the rock from which you descended to the beach. As a direction, orient yourself to the West (“W” on the minimap).

The cave looks like this:

Run through the cave to the very end – there are only 20-30 meters. As a result, you will find yourself on a makeshift balcony and see the starting location. At the very edge there will be remains, from which you will get the Holy Tree Dragon Talisman.

This talisman significantly increases the resistance to holy damage, which will come in handy at the initial stages of the passage (and in the middle too). A little later, you will meet more useful talismans, but for now, run around with this. 

If you are also interested in lore, then the Holy Tree Dragon Talisman has an image of an ancient dragon. It was probably created as a tribute to the dragons who ruled in the prehistoric era, before the beginning of the era of the Tree of Erd. They protected the ruler, being literally a wall of living stone. Over time, their image became a symbol of protection – hence the protective variety of the talisman.
