How to get to Mohgwyn Palace in Elden Ring (2024)

Mohgwyn Palace is a secret, late-game area in Elden Ring which you cannot reach by conventional means.

Though reaching Mohgwyn Palace is technically optional, this area is not only how you access the DLC, and also home to the best rune farming spot in the game, so it should be high on your list to reach on any playthrough.

This guide explains how to get to Mohgwyn Palace by one of two teleporter options, and what to do when you get there.

Mohgwyn Palace location

Mohgwyn Palace is one of Elden Ring’s many hidden subterranean locations, located in the east of the Siofra River Well region which houses the likes of Nokron, Eternal City.

Despite its proximity to those other locations, it is not connected to the rest of Siofra River Well or anywhere else in the game — instead, Mohgwyn Palace requires use of a teleporter to access...

To get to Mohgwyn Palace in Elden Ring, you need to use teleportation. There are two ways to get yourself there:

  1. Complete White Mask Varré’s questline to get the Pureblood Knight’s Medal, and use it to teleport to the area
  2. Use the teleporter in the Consecrated Snowfield in the northeast region of the Lands Between

Completing a portion of White Mask Varré’s questline is likely the faster path if you’re starting a new playthrough of Elden Ring. But if you’ve skipped parts of his questline, and have access to all (or most of) Elden Ring’s sites of grace, you might just want to teleport to the Consecrated Snowfield or a nearby region.

What follows is a breakdown of the two routes — and from there, you can decide which is best based on your progress.

White Mask Varré is one of the first NPCs you’ll meet in Elden Ring. He has a relatively easy questline that’s worth doing (our full Varré questline guide can break down the following further) but here are the basic steps you need to do to get an audience with Mohg through Varré:

  • Meet Varré at the First Step site of grace and speak to him repeatedly until you’ve exhausted his dialogue.
  • Meet your maiden, Melina, and travel to the Roundtable Hold.
  • Defeat Godrick the Grafted to acquire his Great Rune.
  • Return to the Roundtable Hold and speak with Finger Reader Enia.
  • Varré will travel from the First Step to Rose Church in the southwest region of Liurnia’s lake, west of Gate Town. Speak to Varré at Rose Church and he’ll give you the Festering Bloody Finger item
  • Invade another world. You have two options to complete this step:
  1. Invade another player’s world using the Festering Bloody Finger three times. This requires an online multiplayer connection. Note: You do not need to successfully defeat the player(s) you’ve invaded to progress Varré’s quest.
  2. Invade the world of NPC Magnus the Beast Claw. His invasion sign can be found in Writheblood Ruins in Altus Plateau. The closest site of grace is Bridge of Iniquity. Defeat Magnus the Beast Claw to progress Varré’s quest.

  • Speak to Varré at Rose Church again and he’ll ask you to annoint you. Agree, and he’ll reward you with the Lord of Blood’s Favor item, then ask you to soak it in the blood of a maiden. There are four options to complete this step:
  1. Travel to Church of Inhibition, northwest of Frenzied Flame Village, and interact with the corpse there.
  2. Travel to Chapel of Anticipation (the starting area), using an Imbued Sword Key at the Four Belfries, and interact with the corpse there.
  3. Kill the NPC Irina, at the entrance to Weeping Peninsula (if she’s still alive).
  4. Kill the NPC Hyetta, who can first be encountered at the Lake-Facing Cliffs site of grace in Liurnia, if you’ve finished Irina’s questline by completing Castle Morne and finding her father.

Once you’ve dyed the cloth of the Lord of Blood’s Favor with maiden’s blood, return to Varré. He’ll perform a gruesome ritual on you and reward you with the Bloody Finger. Speak to Varré again and he’ll give you the Pureblood Knight’s Medal.

Use the Pureblood Knight’s Medal from the Tools tab in your inventory, and you’ll be transported to the steps of Mohgwyn Palace, near the Dynasty Mausoleum Entrance site of grace.

Work your way through Mohgwyn Palace until you reach Dynasty Mausoleum Midpoint if you want to access the DLC. Your battle with Mohg, Lord of Blood, is nearby. If you’re having trouble, consult our guide on how to beat Mohg.

Consecrated Snowfield teleporter to Mohgwyn Palace

To reach Consecrated Snowfield in Elden Ring, you’ll need to progress a little further through the storyline and acquire the Haligtree Secret Medallion halves.

Once you have both halves, journey to the Grand Lift of Rold in Leyndell, Royal Capital — a location you’ll only have access to once you’ve acquired two Great Runes. At the Grand Lift of Rold, select “Hoist secret medallion” (not “Hoist medallion”) to gain access to Consecrated Snowfield.

The Waygate that teleports you to Mohgwyn Palace is located in the western edge of Consecrated Snowfield, northwest of Yelough Anix Ruins and west of where you are invaded by (and must defeat) Sanguine Noble. If you teleport to the Inner Consecrated Snowfield site of grace, just head due west to find the Waygate.

The Waygate in Consecrated Snowfield will transport you to a dark cave, the exit of which opens into Mohgwyn Palace. You’ll need to work your way northwest through the blood lake, avoiding Nameless White Mask invaders and giant spectral skeletons, to reach the Dynasty Mausoleum Entrance site of grace.

If you want to access the DLC, work your way through Mohgwyn Palace until you reach Dynasty Mausoleum Midpoint. Your battle with Mohg, Lord of Blood, is nearby. If you’re having trouble, consult our guide on how to beat Mohg.

If you’re struggling, the good news is now you have unlocked Mohgwyn Palace, you also have access to the best rune farming location in the game.
