Elden Ring Seppuku Location

The Elden Ring Seppuku location is the place where you can find this Ashes of War weapon upgrade. The catch is that you’re actually hunting for an invisible enemy. The game does give you a few hints as to where this enemy is, but you really have to be paying attention. It’s all worth it, though, because the Seppuku Ashes of War are really powerful. With all of that said, let’s begin.

Where to Find Seppuku Ashes of War in Elden Ring

To find the location of the Seppuku Elden Ring Ashes of War, the first step is to go to the Frozen Lake site of grace. That’s in the northeast of the world map, in the northwest corner of the giant lake in Mountaintops of the Giants. You can see exactly where it is in the screenshots below. Once you get there, ride across the lake to the east. Keep your eyes and ears open. You’re listening for the skittering of insect legs and looking for strange footprints in the ice. That’s actually an invisible beetle that you need to kill in order to obtain Seppuku. It seems that this particular bug walks in a circle, so you can just stand in one place that you saw it walk by and wait for the right moment to strike.

That’s how you get the Seppuku Ashes of War Elden Ring and where its location is. Figuring out the timing of hitting the beetle is kinda tricky, so I recommend using an attack or spell that has an area of effect. It will make things significantly easier. On the bright side, the beetle has a pittance of health. And as to why you even want the Seppuku Ashes of War, it’s because this weapon upgrade is really powerful. For one, it adds the Blood Affinity to the weapon you apply it to. You can then use the Seppuku “skill” to stab yourself and sacrifice a small slice of your health bar to grant the weapon +30 to Attack Power and +38 to Bloodloss Buildup. Powerful stuff.

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.
