Elden Ring Illusory Walls Locations Guide

In this detailed guide for Elden Ring, we'll be jumping into all the Illusory Walls locations and the treasures locked behind them.

Having a hard time finding Illusory walls and accessing the secret paths in Elden Ring? Well, not anymore! In this detailed guide for Elden Ring, we’ll be jumping into all the Illusory Walls locations and the treasures locked behind them. So without further ado, let’s begin!

What are Illusory Walls?

Illusory Walls are hidden walls scattered throughout the lands of Elden Ring. Just as they sound, these illusion walls act as an artificial barrier between secret paths and rooms that lead to treasures, special weapons, and dangerous bosses.

What’s interesting about these walls is that it’s tough to tell which wall is Illusory and which is not. This is because they look identical to all the walls in the room; hence it becomes easy to miss one.

One way to find these hidden walls in Elden Ring is to always check in crowded rooms. There are higher chances of them acting as a real wall in crowded rooms than appearing alone in an empty one.

The second way is to read player messages. I know what you’re thinking, there are dozens of player messages near walls that are often lies and just lead to you clunking a random wall with your weapon.

Most of the lies are obvious and you never know when one of the more possible ones could be true, so whack away ye Tarnished!

How to Open Illusory Walls in Elden Ring

To open an Illusory Wall in Elden Ring, all you need to do is attack the wall with a weapon or spell. You can also roll into them. Doing so will force the illusion to dissipate. Hence, revealing a secret path (or room) behind with probable items, weapons, and bosses lying in wait.

There is also a way to reveal an Illusory Wall by using the Law of Regression spell. When used, the spell dispels all illusions such as statues, messages, and walls.

Here are the locations of every Illusory Wall that we have discovered in Elden Ring.
