Heretical Rise Puzzle Solution in Elden Ring
Some areas will be blocked by a cryptic puzzle, like the time you tried to enter Haligtree Canopy but had to solve the Ordina Liturgical Town Puzzle. It is the same when you reach the Heretical Rise Tower at the Mountaintop of the Giants. Here we will see how to solve the puzzle in Elden Ring.
To reach the Heretical Rise Tower and solve the puzzle, you will have to head to the Mountaintops of the Giants. From there, head southwest from the Freezing Lake Site of Grace and follow the rocks till you reach an arched ruin. Go through it and head southeast till you reach a broken bridge. Now all you have to do is simply cross it. You will have to reach the south to the southeast side of the building towards the balcony on the tower, but be careful as the invisible bridge breaks off in the middle. You will have to stop at the point where the snow is falling eastwards. You can use your arrows, Glintstones, or Rainbow Stones, and throw them on the invisible ground to know where you can step foot. If you look close you can see a misty path on the east side that will lead you to the balcony at the south.
Now that you are inside, go left towards the flight of stairs that go up towards the elevator. Step on the elevator floor and it will take you up. Exit the room and take right up the flight of stairs till you reach a room with a chest. Open it to receive the Founding Rain of Stars sorcery that casts a downpour of starry rain. You can now exit the Heretical Rise normally from the main entrance instead of taking the bridge.
That’s all there is to know about the Heretical Rise puzzle and how to solve it in Elden Ring. If you liked this guide you can check out our other guides as well.
