How to Get to Nokstella Eternal City in Elden Ring

In order to reach Nokstella Eternal City in Elden Ring, you’ll need to conduct a series of steps and meet preconditions. The city is located in the Ainsel River region. Or to be more specific, in the Ainsel River Main area. But to reach this area you’ll first need to work for Ranni the Witch and complete several tasks for her.

In order to reach Ranni at Ranni’s Rise and offer your service to her, you’ll need to battle your way through the Caria Manor. This means defeating Royal Knight Loretta, a boss in the Caria Manor. When you clear the manor, you’ll get access to Three Sisters/Ranni’s Rise.

Find Ranni there and accept her offer to serve her when being asked. Keep in mind that she will not ask you to serve her if you haven’t met the requirements. She will only ask for your service after you’ve defeated Rennala Queen of the Full Moon in Raya Lucaria Academy and Radahn in Caelid. You’ll also need to acquire access to Nokron Eternal City.

With all these requirements met, it’s guaranteed that Ranni will ask you to serve her, an offer you should accept. This will kick off her questline. Work through her quest and at one point, you’ll be sent off to Night’s Sacred Ground in Nokron Eternal City. The important part here is to find the Fingerslaying Blade and bring it back to Ranni. For this, she will give you the Carian Inverted Statue, which you will use to access the Inverted Carian Study Hall. Clear the inverted hall and the Divine Tower of Liurnia, and make sure to grab the Cursemark of Death key item once you defeat the Godskin Noble boss.

After completing all these tasks for Ranni, she’ll move from Ranni’s Rise to Renna’s Rise. Renna’s Rise is just north of Ranni’s Rise, and there you’ll find two teleports. One leads to Nokron Eternal City and the other to Nokstella Eternal City. Use the second waygate to access the Ainsel River region and within it, Nokstella Eternal City! There’s also an alternative way to access Nokstella Eternal City without completing Ranni’s questline. You can use a coffin in the northwestern section of Deeproot Depths, an underground area which you can access by resting in a coffin after defeating Valiant Gargoyle in Siofra Aqueduct.

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.
