How To Get To Mohgwyn Palace Early in Elden Ring

If you’re well into your journey in Elden Ring, you can skip this section and head to the next. However, if you’re new to the Lands Between or want to reach the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC on a fresh save, then here is how you can get to the Mohgwyn Palace ASAP.

First, you do have to defeat Margit and Godrick the Grafted. This triggers an event where Varre (the man who calls you maidenless) will travel to a church in Liuirnia of the Lakes. Below are the steps that allow you to teleport to Mohg’s doorstep:

  1. Obtain a Great Rune (Defeat Godrick)
  2. Talk to Enia at the Roundtable Hold
  3. Travel to Rose Church in Liurnia of the Lake
  4. Speak with Varre at the church to obtain the Festering Bloody Finger
  5. Use the finger three times to invade other players (you don’t have to win)
  6. Talk to Varre again to obtain the Lord of Blood’s Favor
  7. There are a few ways to complete this next part, as you need to soak the item in the blood of a maiden
    • Kill Irina at the entrance to the Weeping Peninsula
    • Kill Hyetta at the exit of Godrick’s Castle
    • Use the corpse found at the Church of Inhibition in the Frenzied Flame Village
  8. Return to Varre with the Blood Soaked cloth and he will give you the Pureblood Knight’s Medallion

Players can activate the Medallion and be teleported to Moghwyn Palace instantly. Unlike the portal in the Consecrated Snowfield, this teleport will place players at the doorstep of Mohgwyn Palace, allowing them to access Mohg a bit quicker. You also don’t have to worry about gathering Medallions.

How to Find Mohg in Elden Ring

Take the portal northwest of the Yelough Anix Ruins in the Consecrated Snowfields to reach Mohg and his palace. When you get close enough to the portal, there will be plenty of red flowers in the snow, and a Sanguine Noble will appear. After you kill the noble, look toward the edge of the map on a downward slope. There will be a blue teleporter that looks the same as other portals throughout the game, except this one will be surrounded by pools of blood. Interacting with it will bring you to Mohgwynn Palace.

Elden Ring: How to Get to Mohg

  • Get both halves of the Secret Haligtree Medallion.
  • Use the Medallion at the Grand Dectus Lift to enter the Consecrated Snowfields.
  • Head to the northwest of the Snowfields to find a teleporter.
  • Enter Mohgwyn Palace and head to Mohg, Lord of Blood.

Reaching Mohgwynn’s Palace is the first step to actually finding Mohg. The hardest part is over, but you still need to get through the area. Two main Sites of Grace can be found as you reach the main mausoleum. Once you get out of the dark cave with multiple Sanguine Nobles, you’ll find an elevator. This brings you to the main arena with Mohg, which is also where the body of Miquella can be found.

How to Reach the Consecrated Snowfields in Elden Ring

  • Village of the Albinaurics in Elden Ring.
  • Castle Sol in Elden Ring.

You need the left and the right half of the Secret Haligtree Medallion to reach the Consecrated Snowfields. One-half can be found in the Village of the Albinaurics. Head west in Lirunia of the Lakes to find the village and then hit a large pot. Old Albus will appear and give you the first half.

The second half is found at Castle Sol in the northern tip of the Mountaintop of the Giants. Take down Commander Niallm, one of the tougher bosses, and head upstairs to find a chest with the second half. Take both of them to the Grand Dectus Lift and change the action when you approach. After lifting the medallion, you will be brought to the path that leads to the Consecrated Snowfields.

Of course, you can head over to Mohg’s Palace and finish your quest to find Miquella.

Elden Ring is available now on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.
