There are eight Legendary Talisman in Elden Ring, each providing you with amazing buffs and special effects and Radagon’s Soreseal is one of them. While this Talisman has its benefits, it also has a negative effect to keep things balanced. So is Radagon’s Soreseal worth it? We will be addressing this query in this guide along with its location.
Radagon’s Soreseal Location in Elden Ring
To find Radagon’s Soreseal, you must start your journey from the Fort Faroth Site of Grace, in Caelid. After passing the bats and harpies, you can head inside the fort from the stairs on the front side.
Once inside, head left to find a ladder inside a room. You must jump down from here, onto the rooftop below the tower, and head southwest into the second hole on the floor, just past the first one.
At this point, you must head northeast while making sure not to run into the rats on the left, found behind the boxes. Next up is jumping onto the platform, where you’ll encounter two more rats.
Go past the two rats, and move down the ladder into the dead-end where you’ll find the Radagon’s Soreseal.
This is one of the most effective Talismans in the game, but note that the increased damage consumption can prove troublesome if you face enemies that have more powerful attacks.
Is Radagon’s Soreseal Worth It?
Since Radagon’s Soreseal increases your Strength, Vigor, Endurance, and Dexterity stats by 5 however, in return, you will take 15% increased damage. Naturally, it raises the question considering its extra damage penalty, whether Radagon’s Soreseal is worth it. The short answer is yes, in most cases!
+5 for all important stats is definitely worth it if especially if you are running strength or dexterity builds. Since it also improves Vigor and Endurance, it can also work well with different forms of builds as well. +5 to 4 stats is actually 20 levels otherwise so Radagon’s Soreseal can come in really handy for a variety of builds, especially in the early part of the game. However, once you have hit the soft level cap for your stats in your build (around level 80), Radagon’s Soreseal becomes less lucrative and you can replace it with better Talismans.
The Difference Between Radagon’s Soreseal and Radagon’s Scarseal
Both these Talismans have the same effect (apart from having similar names), however, Radagon’s Scarseal adds +3 for a 10% increase in damage taken while Radagon’s Soreseal offers +5 for a 15% increase in damage taken. Simply put, you can consider Scarseal as the lighter version of Soreseal. And if you are wondering whether both Radagon’s Soreseal and Scarseal Stack, yes they do and if you are feeling adventurous, you can use both the Talismans for a +20% damage taken for +8 in Vigor, Endurance, Strength, and Dexterity.
