How to Get Crucible Axe Armor Set in Elden Ring
In order to find the Elden Ring Crucible Axe Armor Set, you’ll need to go to the Auriza Hero’s Grave. And there you will need to kill Crucible Knight Ordovis who will drop the Crucible Axe Armor Set. The Auriza Hero’s Grave is a minor sub-area in the Capital Outskirts region in the Western zone of the Altus Plateau. To find Auriza Hero’s Grave, go to the eastern-most section of Leyndel’s inner walls. Eventually, you’ll spot a detached tomb-like building between the walls and cliffs in the open area. Check out our screenshots below for the exact location and the appearance of the building.
Once inside, stand exactly in the centre of the area surrounds by pillars, and that will trigger a lift that will bring you down to the Auriza Hero’s Grave. Once down, activate the site of grace there, and follow the path to the left. Now you’re entering the area you might already be familiar with if you’ve visited the Stranded Graveyard before. You’ll need to descend all the way down to get the Crucible Axe Armor Set, but in that process, you need to avoid massive mechanical war chariots patrolling the passage up and down. They are really fast and cover the whole path side-to-side. To avoid them, use alcoves but beware of the skeletons.
When you get all the way to the bottom, Crucible Axe Armor Set is just around the corner, so to speak. Pass through the fog and you’ll need to defeat the Crucible Knight Ordovis and a regular Crucible Knight. Slay them and Ordovis will drop the Crucible Axe Armor Set!
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.
