[Music] the first and final expansion for from software’s Elden ring shadow of the her tree is finally here it’s been a joyous yet super punishing Journey you don’t have to venture into the new region completely blind here are some various tips and tricks to help you get started whether it’s accessing the DLC or finding some of its best items how to access the DLC eaten from the inside of melanous Scarlet rot his wits are long gone it’s been mentioned before but it Bears repeating if you haven’t killed starcor redon or Moog lord of the blood go do it now slaying them is required to access shadow of the UR tree while radon can be tackled after clearing the bosses of Stormville castle and R lucaria Academy it’s possible to fight him immediately after receiving torrent though you’ll be underleveled as for MO you can use the H tree secret medallion with the right half located in the village of the albaner in leria look for a pot near the sight of Grace and hit it to reveal Albus who is hidden to receive the right half the left half requires going north of the mountain tops of the Giants to reach Castle Soul you must defeat Commander Nile in the Northeast Tower to get it with both pieces go to the grand left of R located east of the capital in the Forbidden lands you must then go to the western part of the consecrated snowfield Northwest of the yellow anx ruins which is where you’ll find a teleporter the sanguine Noble invades beforehand so after dispatching them use the teleporter to reach the mongin palace the alternative is white maskar’s quest line which becomes available after earning your first great Ro invading three players or going to the W blood ruins and kill Magnus the beastclaw get the Lord of blood’s favor and soak it in a maiden’s blood several options are available so look up your ideal one take the blood soaked favor tuvar to receive the pure blood Knights metal use it and you’ll teleport directly to mongin Palace recommended level you can attempt the DLC early into a new game playthrough but it’s recommended to be level 120 or so when challenging Moog not to mention upgrading your weapons and spirit summons however you might find the realm of Shadows to be overwhelming even at that point those who previewed the expansion several weeks prior had trouble even on level 150 builds so take that as a baseline at least it’s recommended to hit level 160 before entering the region if you want to be really prepared level 180 are bust vertical exploration plenty of reviews have discussed the more vertical design of the realm of Shadow and they’re not joking if you’re ever stuck or don’t know where to go next try looking for Cliffside Trails or Spirit Springs more on that later to get to a higher Vantage Point some optional yet highly rewarding areas can be men T if you’re not careful so explore thoroughly how to defeat furnace Golems the one thing you’ll probably notice first when roaming the realm of Shadow is the furnace Golem these hulking monstrosities both powerful fiery attacks and worst of all they’re invulnerable to damage on most of their body if you want some of the new Crystal tiers taking them down is necessary but it is possible you can stance break those without armor on their legs by continuously wailing on their limbs and then attacking their face plate with a critical attack alternatively shoot their face plate with projectiles great arrows work nicely but if you’re at a high enough position try chucking a hefty fire pot into their basket for massive damage upon defeating a furnace Golem you can use their furnace visages to craft a hefty furnace pot which does even more damage to furnace Golems when targeting their basket how to get all map fragments out of all the things essential to exploring the realm of Shadow map fragments are probably near the top of the list when first entering the land go northeast to find the first map fragment in the gravite plane the southern Shore map fragment is out of the way but available early on go to elac Bridge and follow the elac River South to the Cillian Coast cross site of Grace to find it after venturing through Castle Enis and reaching Scot alus travel Northeast from The High Road cross site of Grace to reach the region map’s fragment the rawa Ruins map fragment is also in scadu alus go northeast from the morth ruin side of Grace to reach a cave and Venture through the tunnel until the ancient ruins base appears it should pop up near the templ town ruins finally the abysal woods map fragment is in the shadow keep you must use the stone coffin in the dungeon to venture to the castle Watering Hole head south into the dark light cast Combs and in the Southeast corner should be an abandoned church with the map fragment how to easily get Scot tree fragments with how much everything hurts in the expansion depending on your level it’s a good idea to seek out the various scatter Tre fragments they’ll reduce the damage taken and increase your damage output with each level though you must gather more for higher levels scatter tree fragments are located near micholas crosses scattered throughout the land two are close to Castle Enis however you also get one every every time you defeat a shadow Undead these enemies carry a pot on their heads so keep an eye out for them new wondrous physics and why you should use them as discussed earlier taking down the furnace Golems is necessary for earning the new Crystal tiers which can be mixed to create new wondrous physics some of these include the Crimson burst dried tier which refills your HP every time you slay an enemy meanwhile the vidiian hidden tier AIDS in recovering your stamina those relying on Spirit summons should keep an eye out for the glow wart Crystal tier since this improves them even if you’re well off with the current physics try experimenting with new options they may be more potent than you think sealed Spirit Springs Spirit Springs are a means to Traverse the lands between allowing you to soar to Great Heights while still on torrent they’re also present in the realm of Shadow but you might notice them looking less Grand than usual due to a seal opening them up is easy though look for a stone car nearby and Destroy them with melee attacks to open the spirit spring where to find what materials whether you’re looking for materials to bolster your weapons and spirit ashes or Hefty pots to craft the new Hefty fire pots to damage the furnace Golems the realm of Shadows provides however understanding where each material type can be is key if you’re going in blind then remember that Glo warts for upgrading your summons can be found in catacombs bolstering materials like smithing stones and even some weapons are located in Rune forges and jails house Hefty pots bellot and shadowkeep we’ll leave the total number of Legacy dungeons a mystery but it’s worth noting the first two bellod Tower settlement and shadowkeep since they’re mandatory for progressing the story the former is located in gravite Plains to the Northwest though beware of enemies like Shadows of the Dead scorpions horned Warriors and man flies there’s also plenty of room for ambushes so stay alert Shadow keep is located in scat this but here’s the kicker it has multiple points of Entry how you tackle it is up to you and while you can once again expect Shadows of the Dead there are also Black Knights who drop pieces of the new Mesmer Knight set fire Knights giant crabs and everyone’s favorite ulcerated tree spirits to deal with hey did you know that we at gaming bolt upload new videos every day stick around drop a like subscribe and hit that Bell and let us know what kind of content you’d like to see in
