The Elden Ring map fragment steles locations are places where you can pick up a map of the region the stele is in. That is the only way we know of to actually reveal the Elden Ring world map, chunk by chunk. The issue is that, while these objects are marked on the map, they are a little difficult to see. More importantly, since that section of the map is blank, you can’t really tell how to get there. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to show you how to reveal the Elden Ring map and where to find the map fragment steles in Elden Ring in each area.
How to Reveal Elden Ring Map
To reveal the map in Elden Ring, you have to get map fragments by interacting with steles (and yes, I know stelae is the “correct” Latin plural, shut up). These steles are tall, ornate slabs with writing on them, as shown in the image above. At the foot of the stele, you’ll find an item to pick up. That is going to be the map of the region the stele is in. Once you have the fragment, just open the world map, and boom, the region will be revealed. So, yeah; this is sort of Elden Ring’s answer to Ubisoft towers, if you will.
Limgrave Map Fragment Stele Locations Elden Ring
There are two Limgrave Map Fragment stele locations that we know of; East Limgrave and West Limgrave. We’ll begin with the West Limgrave map fragment. You can find the stele just outside the camp in Gatefront Ruins, on the right side of the path leading to Stormgate and Stormveil Castle beyond it (right if you’re going towards Stormgate). As for East Limgrave, the easiest way to find it is to first go northeast to the Third Church of Marika, then follow the path on the map leading south and then southwest. You’ll find the map fragment by the side of the road, once again. Important side note – mind the bears. The place is crawling with them.
Elden Ring Liurnia Map Fragment Stele Locations
We have found three Liurnia map fragment stele locations, and these are East, West and North Liurnia. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to access this zone in general before you beat the boss in Stormveil castle. The East Liurnia stele is in the bog you’ll get into soon after entering the region. The Norht Liurnia fragment is to the north of the previous one, next to a site of grace. Basically, if you follow the trail the bonfires lay out, there’s no way you’ll miss it. Lastly, we have the West Liurnia stele, which is kind ain the middle of nowhere. So, I’ll just refer you to the screenshots below.
Weeping Peninsula Map Fragment Locations
The location of the Weeping Peninsula map fragment stele, the single one we’ve been able to find, is in the southeast of the region. You can see exactly where to find it in the image below. The long story short is that you just need to follow the path the sites of grace are laying out for you. The stele will be on the path to the castle. However, just as the player comes across the stele, a huge enemy will start pelting you with arrows the length of a football field. You can grab the map before beating the monster, since it’s very slow on the draw, but be careful.
Caelid Map Fragment Stele Elden Ring
The Caelid map fragment stele is a little tricky to find. First of all, it doesn’t seem to be on the direct path that the sites of grace are leading you down. You can see where it is in the image below. More importantly, however, depending on the direction you’re coming from, you might have to ride straight through a boss fight to get to the stele. What’s important to note here is that you can absolutely ride through this battle and ignore it completely if you’re just out to get the map fragment.
Next, we have the Dragonbarrow stele Elden Ring map fragment in Elden Ring. The only way you can easily reach this area is to cross the canyon at a specific place, shown in the first screenshot below. Use Torrent to make the jump. Then, ride towards the tower in the northeast, and take the road leading east. The stele will be on your right.
This guide is a work in progress. We’ll add further stele locations if we find them.
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.
