If you're looking to get more souls from the enemies you kill in Elden Ring, here's how to get the Gold Scarab Talisman

How to get more Souls with the Gold Scarab Talisman in Elden Ring

We have long doubted the existence of a talisman that increases rune gains in Elden Ring, since after finishing the story and searching all the areas of the game quite well, we had not gotten our hands on it. But it does exist, it is just very well hidden, at the bottom of a dungeon that is easy to pass. To save you from making the same mistake we did, here's how to get it.

Elden Ring

Obtain the Golden Scarab

Let's start by specifying that it's going to be difficult to obtain this talisman at low level, since it is obtained as a reward from a side dungeon boss in Caelid, the 3rd region of the game. It is probably better to try to go seek him out after defeating Margit and Godrick. Given the exponential increase in rune gains as you progress, it's not like you're going to lose a lot of potential levels. But you are free to try the adventure, if you want to take up the challenge.

The dungeon in question is not far from the Meteor Staff, another popular item. You should preferably have the mount, since getting there on foot in Caelid may be long. If you haven't already done so, also go get the Eastern Necrolimbo Map Fragment, which reveals part of Caelid in passing, which will greatly facilitate your navigation, and therefore the discovery of the dungeon.

Tou'll first need to go to the Abandoned Cave located east of the Smoldering Wall. You will reach a ravine guarded by an Iron Lady equipped with spinning blades. You have to jump on the branches above the ravine to cross it, and thus reach the cave halfway up on the other side.

The deserted cave

This dungeon isn't particularly difficult, at least if you have the right tools on hand. That is, a torch at a minimum, and preferably a lamp, as well as Poison and Scarlet Rot Heal Pellets . Healing spells from these conditions, such as Cleansing Fire are also good options.

You will literally have to wade through scarlet swamps that will slow you down by having to dodge eruptions and poison spells. Suffice to say that trying to cross the area at low level and without consumables, risks turning into a nightmare. The good news is that the enemies in the dungeon are overall very weak, luckily there are no mechanized iron ladies, just their carcasses. The only notable enemy before the boss is a giant flower that you can ignore, or kill more easily using fire.

Things will get complicated with the boss, even if it is very far from being the worst of its kind, since it is simply a Valkyrie of the noble rot, at least at the start. A second valkyrie will come to assist him then . They are quite dangerous, especially at low levels. Luckily, it's possible to flinch them quite easily with powerful attacks. Watch out for their impaling technique, as well as their fearsome holy spells. In case of victory, you will receive the coveted talisman.
