Looking for an easy Sorcery or Incantation Memory Slot expansion? There are only eight Memory Stones in Elden Ring, and one of them is inside Oridys’s Rise, on the Weeping Peninsula. It’s quite easy to obtain, so be sure to stop by whenever you’re in the area.

In this Elden Ring Oridys’s Rise guide, we’ll show you how to seek three wise beasts, find the turtles’ locations, open the door, and collect your reward from Oridys’s Rise map.

Oridys’s Rise is a large stone tower on the eastern cliffs in the Weeping Peninsula, northeast of the Castle Morne Rampart site of grace and south of the Beside the Crater-Pocked Glade site of grace. To reach the top of the cliffs, follow the path south from the Bridge of Sacrifice, and then turn left before the Nomadic Merchant. You will see Oridys’s Rise to your right.


Oridys’s Rise enemies and items

There are no deadly bosses in this mysterious Elden Ring location, for a change. Watch out for the wolf pack in front of the entrance, though. They’re relatively easy to kill, but you might want to do so while riding your mount or by using ranged attacks to avoid being swamped.

The only item in Oridys’s Rise is the Memory Stone, which is used to increase your Sorcery and Incantation Memory Slots. Unfortunately, the entrance to Oridys’s Rise is sealed. You’ll have to solve the Three Wise Beasts puzzle to unlock it.


Oridys’s Rise Puzzle: Three Wise Beasts

See the statue holding a book next to the sealed doorway? Upon interacting, the book tells you to “seek three wise beasts”. A pretty vague hint, but here’s what you need to do: Kill the three nearby spirit turtles.


Oridys’s Rise turtles

  1. The first spirit turtle is right in front of the entrance.
  2. The second spirit turtle is directly left of the staircase leading into Oridys’s Rise. It’s hiding in the bushes, and therefore a bit hard to spot.
  3. The third spirit turtle is in the middle of the pond on the right side (west) of the tower’s entrance. This turtle is invisible, but if you just face the pond’s center and use an attack, you should be able to hit it.

Inside Oridys’s Rise

After solving Elden Ring’s Oridys’s Rise puzzle, the door will open, and you’re free to climb the stairs to the top of the tower. This is where you’ll find the treasure chest containing a Memory Stone.

Oh, and a final tip if you don’t wish to become another bloodstain at the top of Oridys’s Rise: Take the stairs when going down.
