In this Elden Ring Limgrave dungeons and rewards guide, we’ll list all of the optional dungeons in East and West Limgrave with their locations on a map and tell you about the rewards you’ll get for completing each of them.
Elden Ring’s dungeons are optional areas — usually caves or tunnels — for you to explore. They usually have a valuable reward or valuable crafting materials inside.
If you’re looking for the Weeping Peninsula, which kind of seems like it’s part of Limgrave, we’ve got a guide for just Weeping Peninsula dungeons here.
Elden Ring East and West Limgrave dungeon locations
Not every one of the icons on the map above are for a dungeon (or a cave, catacomb, or tunnel), strictly speaking. Instead, we’ve marked dungeons as well as ruins or other locations that contain a mini-boss or a valuable reward (or both). You’ll find them in …
- Coastal Cave
- Dragon-Burnt Ruins
- Fringefolk Hero’s Cave
- Groveside Cave
- Limgrave Tunnels
- Mistwood Ruins
- Murkwater Catacombs
- Murkwater Cave
- Stormfoot Catacombs
- Summonwater Village
- Waypoint Ruins
You’ll find the Coastal Cave, unsurprisingly, along the coast in southwest Limgrave. Inside, you’ll continue Boc the Seamster’s quest (if you’ve started it), and fight a lot of demi-humans, including a pair of Demi-Human Chiefs. Your reward for clearing this dungeon is a Sewing Needle (for Boc) and the Tailoring Tools to alter the appearance of (some of) your armor.
The Dragon-Burnt Ruins are in the middle of Lake Agheel in south-central Limgrave. They’re a bit complicated and involve some high-level enemies, so don’t go rushing into them. As you approach, you’ll meet the Flying Dragon Agheel, who will drop a dragon heart that you can take to the Church of Dragon Communion to learn a new dragon-themed incantation.
There are two sets of stairs leading underground in the Dragon-Burnt Ruins. One leads to a chest with a twinblade — a dual-ended weapon — inside. The other leads to a room full of rats and a transporter chest disguised as a chest. That trap takes you to Sellia Crystal Tunnel in Caelid.
Fringefolk Hero’s Cave
You’ll find the entrance to the Fringefolk Hero’s Grave inside the Stranded Graveyard. You’ll need two Stonesword Keys to reach it. Down in the Grave itself, you’ll have to avoid a Chariot, deal with some imps, fight a pair of Grafted Scions, and finally face off against an Ulcerated Tree Spirit.
After a lot of fighting (and dying), you’ll walk out of the Fringefolk Hero’s Grave with the Erdtree’s Favor talisman that increases some of your stats, a Dragon Communion Seal to boost Dragon Communion incantations, an Erdtree Greatbow if you manage to destroy the Chariot, and, when you defeat the Ulcerated Tree Spirit, a Golden Seed and the Banished Knight Oleg Spirit Ashes.
The Groveside Cave is a nice, small dungeon where you’ll fight a few wolves and then the Beastman of Farum Azula. Your reward is the Flamedrake Talisman that increases your resistance to fire damage.
We’ve written about the Limgrave Tunnels in their own guide here. Your reward is a whole lot of smithing stones and, upon defeating the Stonedigger Troll, a Roar Medallion that enhances roar and breath attacks.
Along the road through East Limgrave, you’ll encounter a ghost who will lead you to the Mistwood Ruins where you’ll fight a Lesser Runebear and pick up the Axe Talisman that increases your damage with axes.
This is also where you’ll first meet Blaidd.
Murkwater Catacombs are where you’ll face off against the Grave Warden Duelist to claim the Battle Hammer warhammer.
You’ll run into Bloody Finger Nerijus on your way to Murkwater Cave (they’ll drop the Reduvia dagger when defeated). Inside Murkwater Cave, you’ll meet Patches the Untethered. If you spare his life, he’ll become a merchant you’ll meet in Liurnia.
On the west side of West Limgrave, you’ll find the Stormfoot Catacombs a little northwest of the Church of Elleh. Inside, you’ll find lots of imps and an Erdtree Burial Watchdog. You’ll walk out with two new Spirit Ashes, the Wandering Noble Ashes and the Noble Sorcerer Ashes.
Summonwater Village in the northeast of Limgrave is guarded by a Tibia Mariner. The flooded village is part of D, Hunter of the Dead’s quest(s). In an underground chamber locked with a Stonesword Key, you’ll find a lot of turtles and the Green Turtle Talisman that raises your stamina recovery.
The Waypoint Ruins in the southeast of West Limgrave are full of poisonous flowers. In the Waypoint Ruins Cellar, you’ll meet Mad Pumpkin Head and, in the next room, the sorceress Sellen who will sell you incantations.
