How To Get Marika’s Soreseal In Elden Ring

In this guide, we'll show you how to get Marika’s Soreseal in Elden Ring by highlighting its location and the steps to get to it.

Marika’s Soreseal is one of the eight Legendary Talismans in Elden Ring that are required to unlock the Legendary Talismans trophy/achievement.

Finding this talisman, though, can prove to be a bit tricky. Marika’s Soreseal is located in a hidden room in Brace of Haligtree, Elphael. To get access to the room, you need a special key.

Even though this Talisman is found somewhat later in the game, it still is a very useful one as it can provide +5 to Mind, Faith, Intelligence, and Arcane Stats. In return though, you also take 15 percent more damage.

So, this talisman should be equipped wisely while measuring both its pros and cons which can only be done if you know the exact location of where to obtain this talisman.

Marika’s Soreseal location in Elden Ring

Marika’s Soreseal is a rare talisman that is locked away in a secret dungeon and can only be accessed if the right Stonesword Key is provided.

The journey towards Marika’s Soreseal starts by accessing the Grand Lift of Rold by piecing together a medallion. Once, players have access to this area they need to traverse a Hidden Path that leads to Haligtree.

This will lead you to the Consecrated Snowfields where you will need to get through a puzzle and unlock access to Miquella’s Haligtree Portal.

Visit the Site of Grace known as Haligtree Canopy and make your way toward Elphael which brings you many steps closer to obtaining Marika’s Soreseal talisman.

Now, you will need to find a Prayer Room that will provide you passage to the Erdtree Avatar from where you can jump down into the dungeon. Keep an eye out for the Grafted Scion here, who is an optional field boss ready to attack you.

Look for the imp statue which is actually the entrance of the secret room. This can be unlocked by using a Stonesword Key that can be bought from Patches or the Twin Maiden Husks.

The Stonesword Key will grant you access to the hidden room and upon entering it, you will see an altar with a chest that houses the Marika’s Soreseal.   

How to use Marika’s Soreseal in Elden Ring

Being a powerful talisman, Marika’s Soreseal can be of great use to players, especially to the ones with Mage builds, due to the increased attributes it provides. However, the additional damage it comes with is also a point of concern for most players.

Weighing both the pros and cons of this talisman, it is safe to say that the additional damage it comes with is well worth the talisman.

The raised Mind, Faith, Arcane, and Intelligence Stats conceal the effect of extra damage taken. But if you still wish to not use this talisman due to the additional damage, it can be sold back for a profit of 3000 Runes.

This talisman is also confused with another talisman known as Marika’s Scarseal which is a beat-down version of this talisman providing +3 to the Mind, Faith, Arcane, and Intelligence stats at the cost of 10% additional damage.

Marika’s Soreseal is an upgrade to Marika’s Scarseal and both these talismans are incompatible with each other hence they cannot be used together.
