If you want to use the big Elevator in Elden Ring you'll first need to complete de medaillon and here's how to do that

How to get the two halves of the Dectus Medaillion in Elden Ring

The second region of Elden Ring definitely likes to block our path, and not only with its topography. You need a special key to enter the academy dungeon, and much the same way there are specific conditions that must be met to activate the elevator that leads to the next region. If you are there, you have certainly noticed the absence of a lever, button or other mechanism to activate. As you might suspect, certain conditions must be met to activate the elevator: You must obtain the two halves of a special medallion .

Find the two halves of the Medallion of Dectus

Activating the elevator is automatically available once in possession of the two halves of the activation medallion, which is not an easy task.

First half of the Dectus Medaillion

The first half of the item is in a chest from the Fort Haight in Limgrave. Clear the fort full of demi-humans located to the east of the region. The medallion half is in a chest at the top. Chances are good that you found it on your own quickly.

Second Half - Fort Faroth

It's probably the half that a lot of people will miss, since it's hidden deep in a high-level area, with lots of aggressive dragons nearby. Once again, she's in a fort full of bats and harpies, and then ghostly knights. It is particularly deadly, if you are too low level you can run through it.

Reach the plateau of Altus differently

To begin with, like in real life, you don't have to take the elevator, it's just much easier and faster.

A good alternative to reach the next region without the elevator is to go through the galleries at the bottom of the gorge to the west. It's a big dungeon with a pretty tough big boss at the end, but if you're ever going to do it anyway, it's a good way to level up.

Elden Ring

There is another method, but it may have some limitations, as it will take you directly to the center of the capital. It nevertheless has the merit of being extremely simple. Go southwest of the Weeping Peninsula in Necrolimbo, climb the Tower of Return and open the trapped chest. It will teleport you to the capital. But it is possible that closed doors prevent you from leaving the area.
