Eiridian writings are a type of collectible in Borderlands 3. They’re strange letters etched into plaques hidden away in caves across the galaxy. You won’t be able to decipher and read them until you’ve learned a secret language, which will happen automatically at some point in the main story. After that, you’ll have to run around the known universe and visit them all. Once you’ve deciphered them all, you’ll unlock the Tales From The Eridian Slab achievement. If you’re wondering where to find them, you’re in the right place. Our
Borderlands 3 Eridian Writings locations guide will show you exactly where to find each of them.
Borderlands 3 Eridian Writings Locations Map Droughts Eridian Writings locations
There are two pieces of Eridian writing in this area. You’ll find one to the west of the base, in a cramped cave next to the arena where the Lavender Crawly
legendary hunt takes place. The other one is on the other side of the map, in the appendix-like part on the eastern edge. It’s a sub-area called Eridian Dig Site, which you’ll visit during a main story mission. It might not be accessible before that, but that’s rather irrelevant – you won’t be able to decipher the writing until much later.
Ascension Bluff Eridian Writings
There’s only one Eridian collectible in this area. You’ll find it all the way in the north, on a ledge overlooking the Catch-A-Ride vehicle bay on the edge of the camp. In order to climb up there, you’ll have to go around, through the camp.

The plaque is around the middle of the map. Go into the cave behind the big waterfall and look for it around halfway through.
Missing eridian writing – Sanctuary
This could easily be the last piece you collect. It isn’t marked on the map, even if you pass it by, which means that by the time you get the ability to parse the writing, you’ll probably forget all about it. It’s in the infirmary, on the south side of the upper level.
Eridian writing – how to decipher & use
It’ll be a long time before you can decipher the Eridian writings. You’ll need an item called Eridian Analyzer, which you’ll receive later (much later) in the main story. It’ll allow you to interact with these slabs. Each one will drop a certain amount of Eridium – the purple currency you can spend in Crazy Earl’s shop.
