Where players can find the Cathedral of Dragon Communion in Caelid, find the Dragon Altar, and the purpose of the Cathedral in Elden Ring.
The Cathedral of Dragon Communion is a ruined Cathedral in Elden Ring located in the southwest area of the Caelid region. The quickest way to reach this location is to travel to the Caelid Highway South Site of Grace and follow the main road east in Elden Ring until reaching a fork in the road. Head south from the fork and the Cathedral should be in view.
If the Caelid Highway South Site of Grace is not yet unlocked in Elden Ring or if the player still has not reached the Caelid region then simply head to the nearest Site of Grace closest to Caelid, located east of the map, and then follow the main road further into the Caelid Region until reaching the aforementioned fork in the road. There is only one enemy at the Cathedral of Dragon Communion, a Banished Knight, guarding the entrance to the Cathedral. This enemy is heavily armored and deals high damage, players should not underestimate it, as the Banished Knight can be challenging to defeat, luckily there is a way around this enemy.

When players reach the Cathedral, it is already in ruins in Elden Ring and can be entered by walking around the Cathedral wall and walking into where the wall has collapsed. Entering the Cathedral gains players access to the Dragon Altar. The Dragon Altar is located directly in the center of the Cathedral. Interact with the Altar to unlock Dragon Communion Incantations.
How to get to the Cathedral of Dragon Communion in Elden Ring
Dragon Hearts are necessary to purchase these Dragon Communion Incantations which mainly require high Faith Stat in Elden Ring, as well as moderate Arcane Stat. Dragon Hearts are obtained by killing Great Dragons located all over the world. After defeating Great Dragons, more potent Incantations will be available at the Dragon Altar. For example, defeating the Glintstone Dragon Smarag will unlock the Smarag’s Glintstone Breath Incantation which is a stronger version of the original Glintstone Breath Incantation.
These stronger versions cost two Dragon Hearts compared to the standard versions which are worth one Dragon Heart in Elden Ring. In order to make the best use of these Dragon Communion Incantations, it is highly recommended to use the Dragon Communion Seal which increases the potency of all Dragon Communion Incantations and scales with the Faith and Arcane Stats to match perfectly with any sort of Dragon Communion build. After purchasing 4 Dragon Communion Incantations from the Dragon Altar, the player’s character model will develop draconic, yellow glowing eyes. Players can always visit an Appearance Editor to change their eyes back to normal.
