Having a hard time finding all of the Golden Seeds in Elden Ring? The following guide will make that search easier while sharing a few tips and tricks to acquire them faster.
What are Golden Seeds in Elden Ring?
Golden Seeds are collectible items that are littered across the world of Elden Ring. Finding all of them is important because they help upgrade your Sacred Flask, which is a consumable item to enhance your health pool and focus point for spells.
Spotting Golden Seeds is very easy as they sit underneath a yellow, golden tree. As soon as you acquire one, take it to the Site of Grace to upgrade the Sacred Flask.
Open the menu and choose Flask, and then simply press on the Add Charge to Flask. Doing so will increase the uses for the Sacred Flask. The more you upgrade, the more Golden Seeds will be needed to level up further.
