Best Talismans For Early Game in Elden Ring
- Lance Talisman
- Ritual Sword Talisman
- Radagon's Soreseal
- Blessed Dew Talisman
Lance Talisman is a must-equip talisman for players fighting on horseback in the open world. It causes your attacks on that horse to deal 15% more damage. The damage boost it provides applies not only to melee weapons but also to ranged weapons and spells. Accordingly, it is a useful talisman for killing enemies while riding in the early stages of the game.
To get Lance Talisman, you must head north of the Warmaster's Shack. There is a corpse on the edge of the cliff in this area. If you loot the corpse you will get the Lance Talisman.
Ritual Sword Talisman increases your attack power by 25% when your HP bar is full. It also stacks with attack power buffs provided by those other talismans. For example, if you equip the Ritual Sword Talisman while equipping the Lance Talisman, your attack power will increase by 15% while mounted and then by 25%.
Thus, you can inflict great damage to enemies by advancing on horseback without taking damage.
To obtain it, you need to travel to Lux Ruins, located on the cliffs of the Altus Plateau. After killing the boss in Lux Ruins, you can loot Ritual Sword Talisman from a chest.
Radagon's Soreseal increases your character's Vigor, Endurance, Strength, and Dexterity stats by 5 points. With simple math, this talisman strengthens your character for 20 levels. However, in addition to all these features, Radagon's Soreseal also has a disadvantage. It increases the damage taken by your character by 15%. But you don't have to worry because the 5 points of vigor provide balance by increasing your HP.
To get Radagon's Soreseal, you need to reach Fort Faroth in Caelid. Although this area is full of powerful and dangerous enemies, you can get this talisman by advancing without fighting them.
Blessed Dew Talisman is a talisman that can remedy your lack of Flask of Crimson Tears, especially early in the game. Regenerates your HP over time while wearing this talisman. For example, when you finish a fight and your health is low, you do not need to drink potions at the end of the war. At the end of the war, you will see that your HP bar will be full while traveling to another location on horseback. Another good thing about the Blessed Dew Talisman is that it balances the health you lose over time when poisoned.
In order to get Blessed Dew Talisman, you must travel to the Tower of Return, located south of Limgrave. At the top of this tower, you will find a chest. When you open the chest, a trap fog will teleport you to an area in Leyndell, Royal Capital. There is a sleeping golem beyond where you teleported. You can loot Blessed Dew Talisman by opening the chest on the right side of the golem.
You don't need to fight and defeat the golem. However, if you want to defeat the golem, you can dodge his attacks and hit his feet with a charged attack so that he falls to the ground. You can then kill the golem with a single critical attack. This is the most effective way of defeating golems.
