Elden Ring War-Dead Catacombs is a dungeon located in the Calid region, in the large beach desert to the east. The Elden Ring War-Dead Catacombs can be found in the far northern corner of the beach after defeating Starscourge Radahn.
Getting around the War-Dead Catacombs isn’t too difficult because it’s not overly complicated. The problem is that many ghost enemies will constantly try to attack you while exploring, which can be pretty annoying. Here’s how to quickly and easily navigate the War-Dead Catacombs and reach the boss chamber in Fromsoftware’s video game available on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.
Where To Find the War-Dead Catacombs
The War-Dead Catacombs are found within the Boss Arena after the fight against Starscourge Radahn.
Fast travel to the Starscourge Radahn Site of Lost Grace, then ride your horse north to the water’s edge to find the catacombs’ entrance.
Don’t bother about killing enemies; it’s better to avoid them entirely, dodging any incoming attacks and healing when needed. Basically, you can’t stop sprinting through the catacombs unless you want to die repeatedly.
In order to enter the boss chamber at the end of the catacombs, you must first locate the lever that opens the doors. Follow the path from the Site of Grace until you reach the main room, where many enemies are fighting each other.
There will be a broken staircase on the right; skip it and climb the one further down on the right. An archer across the way will attempt a ranged attack but dodge it and enter the hallway pointed out in the image above. Continue to the end of the corridor and turn right, avoiding any hits from the soldier and archer.
Again, continue running down the next path until you reach a wall, then turn right. On the right side of this hallway, there will be a small window just before the ghost knight’s room.
Also, a ghost soldier is ready to ambush you right around the corner, so try to dodge-roll to avoid being hit. As you reach the window, jump out of it to land on a platform. Climb up the staircase and go through the small window where an enemy archer awaits.
You can also pick up the Radahn Soldier Ashes in the chamber next to the small window. Turn left to find the lever that will allow you to unlock the boss door.
Pull the lever and drop down to the main floor. Head into the path to the west until you reach the boss gate. Also, it’s worth mentioning that you can pick up the Collapsing Stars Sorcery located in a chest right under the main room platform. You will need to defeat the Putrid Tree Spirit boss, which can be very difficult if you are low-leveled.
After defeating the boss, you will receive Redmane Knight Ogha Legendary Spirit Ashes and a Golden Seed.
