Elden Ring Walking Mausoleum Locations: How To Stop And Enter Them

This guide will show you where to find Walking Mausoleums in Elden Ring and enter them to duplicate remembrances.

While venturing through the Lands Between, you might have come across one or more giant, turtle-like stone creatures with a huge building on top of it. These are called the Walking Mausoleums of Elden Ring.

These Walking Mausoleums often have a bell attached to it between their four legs, which dongs every time they take a step. You can hear this bell from quite some distance, but locating those that don’t have a bell attached to them may be difficult.

Accessing these walking structures is not easy. You cannot simply jump on top of them. You need to find a way to enter the Walking Mausoleum if you want to duplicate your Elden Ring Remembrances. Since these consumables can only be used once to choose one of two rewards, duplicating them allows you to get the reward you skipped the first time.

For that purpose, you need to know where all of the Walking Mausoleums can be found in Elden Ring.

There are a total of 7 Walking Mausoleums that you can find scattered across the map in Elden Ring. While the ones that have a bell attached underneath them are easy to locate, some of them do not come with a giant bell, which can be hard to locate.

Types of Walking Mausoleums in Elden Ring

All 7 walking Mausoleums can be divided into two categories; With Bell and with no bell. If a Walking Mausoleum has a bell beneath it, you can duplicate any Remembrance using it however, if there is no bell, only the non-shard bearer boss Rememberances can be duplicated here.

Weeping Peninsula Walking Mausoleum Location

Weeping Peninsula Walking Mausoleum location in Elden Ring

The Weeping Peninsula is probably the first Walking Mausoleum you encounter in Elden Ring while traversing through the Limgrave region, the starting area.

This Weeping Peninsula mainly walks around the western regions of Limgrave or east of the Isolated Merchant’s Shack. You will find it near the Minor Erdtree or the Church of Pilgrimage, from where you can hear it easily.

The trick to locating these giant walking towers is to search around vast open areas, where they can walk around easily. As such, you may consider looking around the open area south of the Fourth Church of Marika for this particular creature.

Additionally, at the Isolated Merchant’s Shack, you can also purchase a note from an NPC that tells you how to stop the giant stone turtles – while not in detail.

Lakes of Liurnia Walking Mausoleums Location

There are three different Walking Mausoleums that you can find in the Lakes of Liurnia region, which is northeast of the Weeping Peninsula, past Stormveil Castle.

Bellum Highway Walking Mausoleum location in Elden Ring

The first Liurnia Walking Mausoleum that you can get to is the one in the swamp next to the Bellum Highway. You can find it roaming around the east of the East Raya Lucaria Academy Gate Site of Grace.

There is a tricky way to access this particular Mausoleum though. You must first travel along the cliffs west from the entrance of the Crystal Tunnel until you reach the gravestones.

Here, you must wait for the Walking Mausoleum to show up. Once it does, you must use the Spirit Spring or the double jump to jump atop the walking tower when it gets close enough.

For the next two Walking Mausoleums in the Liurnia of the Lakes region, you must make your way to the east, arriving at the Church of Vows. Just north of the Church of Vows is the Ruined Labyrinth Site of Grace.

You must fight your way north through this Site of Grace until you reach a small water body, next to which is the second Walking Mausoleum in the Lakes of Liurnia region.

The third Walking Mausoleum in this region can be found just north of it, on the plateau ahead. Remember that the second and third Walking Mausoleums in this region do not have any bells attached to them, and will sometimes jump to squash you underneath.

Mountaintops of the Giants Walking Mausoleum Location

The Walking Mausoleum in the Mountaintops of the Giants is also referred to as the Castle Sol Mausoleum by most. Judging by that, you would be right to assume that this Walking Mausoleum is located right next to the Castle Sol Main Site of Grace, which is just northwest of the Snow Valley Ruins Overlook Site of Grace and east of the Freezing Lake Site of Grace.

You can access this region by first collecting the two Great Runes from Godrick and Rennala, then unlocking the Altus Plateau, and finally accessing the Grand Lift of Rold.

This is a dangerous area where you are constantly targeted by lightning and are most likely to die. That said, it is recommended to activate this Site of Grace as a nearby spawn point in case you die.

Consecrated Snowfield Walking Mausoleum Location

The Consecrated Snowfield Walking Mausoleum is a special one, as it is a bit difficult to access. You can find this walking turtle near the Apostate Derelict Site of Grace, northwest of Ordina, Liturgical Town.

Follow the river that heads west from the Freezing Lake Site of Grace and then leads north. You should find the Walking Mausoleum northwest of the ending point of this river.

You will have to go through quite a lot of trouble to unlock the Consecrated Snowfield Site region. You will first have to get both halves of the Haligtree Medallion, and then activate the Grand Lift of Rold to access the Consecrated Snowfield region.

The special thing about this Walking Mausoleum is that it shoots barrages of Ice Magic at you as you are closing in. The best way to avoid these barrages would be to stay directly underneath the stone turtle. However, here you must also be careful not to get stomped on, which is nearly instant death.

Additionally, you can also seek refuge inside the walls of the Apostate Derelict Church to protect yourself against the Walking Mausoleum’s Artillery.

Deeproot Depths Walking Mausoleum Location

You will find the last Walking Mausoleum in the Underground, specifically in the Deeproot Depths region. Reaching the Deeproot Depths in the first place is going to be a troubling task, but when you’re inside, you must head over to the Nameless Eternal City Site of Grace.

North from said Site of Grace,  jump atop the Walking Mausoleum when it comes near you to climb atop it.

How to stop and enter Walking Mausoleums in Elden Ring

While technically you could just jump atop the Walking Mausoleum turtle from an elevated platform, there is a dedicated way actually to stop it first and then enter it.

For that, you will have to destroy the skull-like barnacles that you see scattered around its legs and head. Some of these turtles will not have these barnacles on their legs – in that case, you will have to jump atop the turtle and find the barnacles at the top, like in the case of the Deeproot Depths Walking Mausoleum.

To reach the top of the mausoleum, you will require an elevated platform a Spirit Spring, or your Torrent’s Double Jump to gain enough height to jump atop it.

You will mostly be targeting the legs of the Walking Mausoleum. In that case, you don’t necessarily have to destroy every single one of the skulls that you see, just a few good ones should do the trick.

While you can destroy these with a weapon – of which a good one will be a bow – remember to use your Torrent mount while you do so. This is because the Walking Mausoleum starts fighting back as you destroy the barnacles.

It will mostly stomp on you, and if you manage to get stuck underneath, that means instant death. Walking Mausoleums that don’t have a bell underneath, like the second and third ones in the Lakes of Liurnia region, will usually use a slam attack against you.

When you see the attack coming, you must create some distance and step away, so you don’t take any damage. At the top of the mausoleum, you also encounter spectral knights who attack you as you destroy the barnacles, although they disappear once the turtle falls.

If you destroy enough skulls on the Mausoleum, it will start to wobble and eventually fall. Remember to stay away as it is falling because you can get crushed underneath.

Once the Walking Mausoleum stops and falls, you will be free to jump atop and walk around the Mausoleum to find its main gate. Enter through the main gate and you will find a decapacitated black corpse with its hands held up. This is the altar where you can duplicate your remembrances.

How to duplicate Remembrances in Elden Ring

Often when you defeat big Bosses or Demi-Gods, you receive a Remembrance as a reward. You can use these Remembrances to choose from a list of rewards, like Runes or weapons, at the Roundtable Hold.

Once you enter a Walking Mausoleum, place your Remembrance at the main altar to make a copy of it. Once you have this copy of the Remembrance, you can use it again to gain its rewards, including weapons and magic if you skipped them previously. There is, however, a catch to it.

You can only duplicate a remembrance a single time at a particular Walking Mausoleum, so choosing wisely is recommended. Considering there are only seven different Walking Mausoleums, you can hence duplicate seven of your Remembrances to use again.

Can you duplicate Remembrances after using them?

A simple answer would be yes. You can duplicate remembrances at the Walking Mausoleums regardless of whether you have used them previously or not in Elden Ring.

You don’t even have to have a particular Remembrance on you to duplicate it, as you can just select it from the list that you get. If you aren’t getting a prompt to recover the “lost Remembrance” which you used earlier, you should try using some other Mausoleum.

Can you duplicate every Remembrance in Elden Ring?

Since there are 15 Remembrances in Elden Ring and only 7 Walking Mauloseums, you can’t duplicate every remembrance in one playthrough in Elden Ring. You will need a NG+ if you want every reward from every Remembrance in the game.
