How to Get to Caria Manor in Elden Ring
To get to Caria Manor you must head extreme north in Liurnia. You need to continue moving forward on the western side of Lakes and you will see a large castle on top of the hill.
On your way to the castle entrance, you’ll be bombarded by a rain of magic from above! Make sure you approach the gate while riding on Torrent so that you can avoid all the magic bombardment.
Continue moving forward and you will reach the door of the Caria Manor. You can also check the map for the exact location.
Elden Ring Caria Manor Walkthrough
From the Caria Manor Gate, you can start moving forward and enter it. You must move forward on the side of the main path so you can collect different items.
Exploring the entire area of Caria Manor nets you some great items like Glintstone Craftsman Cookbook, Somber Smithing Stones, etc.
Explore the whole courtyard to see for corpses with loot. On the left side of the courtyard, you will find the Glintstone Fireflies, Rimed Crystal Buds, and Golden Runes.
You can kill even kill the creepy Spider hands to farm Somber Smithing Stones. Do note that there is no shortage of spider hands here and that many of them are buried in the ground waiting to grab you. You can see where they are by looking for fingers jutting out of the ground.
Summon some spirits here to quickly dispatch all the spider hands. Your spirits may target randomly here and even at the ground, this is because they are actually trying to hit the underground spiderhands.
The Glintstone Craftsman’s Cookbook can be found on the right side of the courtyard inside a small room. There you will also find a Sorcerer.
If you continue the pathway behind the fountain, you will also find the Teardrop Scarab that can give you the Carian Piercer spell.

From here, you have to drop down on the structure below. Move forward and drop down further to reach a ladder that will take you inside the room.
Inside the room, you can collect the Sword of Night and Flame from a chest. Exit that room and get all the way back to Site of Grace at the Church and rest there.
After that, you can follow the straight path instead of the one you take before. This time from the Tower drop down on the structures at the right side and explore the area.

Stand on the switch of the lift and it will take you all the way up to the upper level of Manor. Move forward and rest at the Site of Grace there.

From there you can go towards the main stairs and battle with a big enemy to get the Troll Knight’s Sword.
From there you can explore the complete area on the right side of the stairs and once done you can again come back here to move upstairs. There you will reach a big circular pool where you encounter Royal Knight Loretta, a particularly strong dungeon boss!
How to Defeat Royal Knight Loretta
Royal Knight Loretta is Boss on a Horse. He is quite mobile and isn’t afraid to close the distance to mow you down. What’s even worse is that Loretta uses Loretta’s Greatbow sorcery to snipe you from afar and some other Glintstone sorceries.
The best strategy here is to find your opening and jump heavy attack the boss. This way you’ll do lots of stance damage and general damage. It’s best if you have something to build bleed to significantly damage Loretta.
Do watch out for some of Loretta’s Glinstone sorceries as they may go through your shield to deal chip damage and even take a chunk of stamina out. Also summon spirits if you can to take some of Loretta’s agro.
Eventually, Loretta will fall and you’ll receive Loretta’s Greatbow sorcery and Loretta’s Slash Ash of War
