How to open all Sealed Spiritsprings and all locations in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree

Unlocking Spiritsprings in Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree

If you’ve been searching for Spiritsprings in the Land of Shadows in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree, you may have encountered spectral piles of rocks known as cairns blocking your way.

These cairns prevent you from accessing the Spiritsprings in different regions of the Shadow Realm. To unlock them, you’ll need to locate a second cairn nearby and destroy it. This crucial information can be obtained in-game by purchasing the Note about sealed Spiritsprings from Moore near the Mate Gate Cross site of grace for 1,000 Runes.

These cairns closely resemble those on the Spiritsprings themselves and are typically in close proximity. Keep in mind that the cairns may be on different elevations, so you may need to get creative in reaching them.

Be vigilant as these cairns can be easy to miss. Once you locate them, attack and destroy the cairn to unlock the Spiritspring for normal use.
