Elden Ring Carian Study Hall Stairs Secret Room

First thing first, we’ll assume that you’ve cleaned the normal version of the Elden Ring Carian Study Hall. This includes killing Preceptor Miriam, the mini-boss inside a library, and all spectres. Make sure to grab all the loot as well, notably the Cerulean Seed Talisman and the Magic Downpour Sorcery spell. Now, you might have noticed strange upside-down stairs in Carian Study Hall, and you’re not sure what’s that all about.

Well, those Carian Study Hall stairs are a hint that there’s actually an inverted version of the Carian Study Hall. And it has to do with the pedestal in the entry hall. In order to unlock access to the inverted Carian Study Hall, you’ll need a special item – the Carian Inverted Statue, or the Carian Study Hall Key. And to get it, you’ll have to progress far deeper into the game.

Where to Find Elden Ring Carian Study Hall Pedestal Key, Carian Inverted Statue

As we’ve mentioned, there’s a long way ahead in order to get the Carian Study Hall key and unlock the secret room. The first thing you need to do is to complete the Caria Manor dungeon. This will grant you access to new parts of the Lands Between, including Ranni’s Rise, where you’ll get an option to serve Ranni. This starts Ranni’s questline. She’ll eventually send you to Nokron Eternal City. After completing a quest for her that includes finding Blaidd and the Fingerslaying Blade, Ranni will give you the Carian Study Hall key.

Now when you finally have the Pedestal key, head back to the Carian Study Hall. Enter the hall, and put the Carian Inverted Statue on the Pedestal. A cut scene will ensue. Now head back to the library again, and you’ll find it upside-down. Make your way down the Inverted Carian Study Hall. Use wall edges and beams until you reach a wooden platform in the centre. Stand in its centre to activate the lift which will bring you down to the front door. Open the door and the Divine Tower of Liurnia will be on the other side. Just head there, and that’s how to get to the Divine Tower of Liurnia. Screenshots courtesy of PerfectParadox.

Very early in your exploration of Elden Ring world you will find out that you need to prepare your character for different tasks. You'll need to learn how to use Ashes of War, how to two-hand weapons, or use magic spells during the course of your adventures. Many secrets are also waiting for you, such as, a hostile NPC Sellen that doesn't let you see her shop, an invisible man in a bush, or a huge turtle with a bell that lets you duplicate some very important items.
