Similar to most of the other towers in Elden Ring, Albinauric Rise has a puzzle of its own as well that you need to solve to open the way forward.
If you are stuck on this puzzle, do not fret since the game only gives you one clue that is pretty vague. You have to find out how to solve the Alinauric Rise puzzle in Elden Ring through the statue of the two fighting imps near the entrance.
How to solve the Albinauric Rise Puzzle in Elden Ring
Albinauric Rise’s entrance is locked at first and it can only be accessed by solving a puzzle. There are two solutions to this puzzle and both of them unlock the entrance.
Get the Fanged Imp Ashes
The first solution to the Albinauric Rise Puzzle requires you to kill the Imp guarding the back of the tower by summoning two other Imps using special Spirit Ashes.
The first thing that you will need is Fanged Imp Ashes which are used to summon two fanged imp spirits and can be bought for 2000 Runes.
You can get the Fanged Imp Ashes near the Main Academy Gate of the Academy of Raya Lucaria from an Isolated Merchant. From the Seal at the Main Academy Gate, head along the path until you see an old man near a fire. That will be the Isolated Merchant you are looking for.
Fight the Enemy Imp at Albinauric Rise
Once you have your hands on the Fanged Imp Ashes, get to the Albinauric Rise. To access the Albinauric Rise, use the Fanged Imp Ashes to summon two Fanged Imps near the Enemy Imp to trigger the battle and then help them kill the enemy Imp around the tower.
Make sure that Summoned Imps must hit the Enemy Imp at least once before it gets killed.
Get the Graven Mass Talisman
Once you and the Summoned Imps have defeated the enemy imp, the seal will open, and you will be able to get inside the tower.
Get inside and then go up the ladder all the way up to the top to get your hands on the Graven-Mass Talisman, a special talisman that can be used to add 8% to the potency of Sorceries.
Alternate way of opening the Albinauric Rise’s Seal
There is another way of opening the seal of Albinauric Rise in Elden Ring and that is by using Bewitching Branch or Crystal Dart on the enemy imp.
There will be two enemy Imps guarding the tower and one of them can be intoxicated using these consumable items. These consumables will make the imp turn on each other which will result in a fight and the Imps will die.
Bewitching Branch once used, will turn the enemy imp into a friendly imp who can then be forced to kill the other Imp.
You can get Bewitching Branch by crafting once you have received the Fevor’s Cookbook or you can simply purchase from the Nomadic Merchant in Liurnia, north of Bellum Church.
