Want to know how you can get to Nokron, the Eternal City in Elden Ring?
Nokron, the Eternal City, is a breathtaking region in Elden Ring. It contains major and optional bosses, various quests, essential items, NPCs, and rare valuables like the legendary Mimic Tear Ashes.
Although the Eternal City is a moderately mid to late-game location, players can access a lower part of the region, which is the Siofra River.
The underground ruins can also be freely entered if you take the powered lift in Sioftra River Well in East Limgrave.
For the other parts of Eternal City, including Nokron, it will be unavailable until players complete a demanding and challenging quest, which involves killing Starscourge Radahn. If you’ve been following the game actively, you’ve probably heard that Radahn is among the toughest bosses in The Lands Between.
If you want to reach Nokron, you’ve come to the right place. Today, we will show you how you can get to Nokron, the Eternal City in Elden Ring.
Let’s get right into it!
Unlocking Eternal City
As mentioned, you’ll need to defeat Radahn to gain access to the remaining parts of the Eternal City.
The boss fight takes place on a battlefield on the eastern coast of Caelid. Players who are up for the challenge must be at least level 60 or higher, with an equipment upgrade of at least +8 in Elden Ring.
Anything lower than what is mentioned above is almost impossible to defeat Radahn.
This boss’ mechanics are pretty straightforward to understand but quite difficult to master and memorize. Despite being a hulking monster, Radahn can glide across the battle area with ease and bring down his target within seconds.
Once Radahn is taken care of, a cutscene will play of a giant star falling to earth somewhere near Limgrave. This should cause Nokron to become accessible.
Getting to Nokron
To reach Nokron in Elden Ring, players must head west from Fort Haight or south if they are coming from Mistwood Outskirts. Continue your journey until you stumble upon a massive crater in the southern woods.
This location will visibly stand out as large pieces of rubble will be floating in the air above the actual site.
Approach the massive crater and descend into its depth. However, be careful not to slip down into the abyssal chasm below. Take note that some of the rocky platforms on the way down appear closer than they actually are.
Now, continue following the path until you see the “Nokron, Eternal City” prompt appear on your screen.
Don’t let down your guard yet since a tricky platform challenge lies ahead, with a few enemies guarding the path. In general, we recommend players travel this route slowly as they defeat enemies along the way, instead of rushing without regard.
