In Elden Ring, players who prefer a magic build may want to find the legendary item Old Lord’s Talisman to extend the duration of their spells.
Players can find the Old Lord’s Talisman in Elden Ring to extend the duration of their spells and incantations. For players exploring the Lands Between using primarily magic, this talisman will make their spells more powerful, which is particularly useful for stat boosts or incantations that inflict a condition on opponents. Unfortunately, players will not be able to acquire this useful legendary object until later in the game, as many powerful enemies will stand in their way.
Players should begin their search to find the Old Lord’s Talisman in Crumbling Farum Azula. Players will be immediately teleported to this region after defeating the Fire Giant boss at the Forge of the Giants. Facing Maliketh, the Black Blade is no easy feat, and players may want to use Ashes of War in Elden Ring to improve their chances at this boss fight. Once players have been teleported, they should travel to the Beside the Great Bridge Site of Grace. Of note, players will find the Site of Grace before the boss room guarded by a calvary enemy.

Players will need to take this path until they reach the great bridge leading to the boss. From this point, players should enter the building just before the bridge. When entering the building, players will be ambushed by two beast enemies pretending to be dead. These enemies will be waiting at the foot of the stairs and near the stairs that lead to the balcony. Players should defeat the enemies in Elden Ring and proceed down the ladder and across the bridge to the tower. Before entering the tower, players will need to defeat the invading enemy Recusant Bernahl.
Elden Ring: Finding and Using the Old Lord’s Talisman
In addition to progressing toward the Old Lord’s Talisman, defeating Recusant Bernahl will also earn players a Blasphemous Claw, Devourer’s Scepter, Beast Champion Helm, Beast Champion Armor (Altered), Beast Champion Gauntlets, Beast Champion Greaves, and Bernahl’s Bell Bearing. After this foe is defeated, players will still need to clear out the remaining enemies in the tower. The best strategy for these lingering beasts is using a ranged attack, like a bow or magic. If players immediately try and enter the tower after defeating Recusant Bernahl, they will be ambushed by three enemies. Once the tower is clear, players can enter to find the Old Lord’s Talisman inside a chest within the tower in Elden Ring.
The Old Lord’s Talisman will increase the duration of a spell by 30%. For players seeking to equip multiple talismans, they equip up to four talismans by finding the three hidden Talisman Pouches in the Lands Between. Two of the Talisman Pouches are rewards from defeating the story bosses Margit, the Fell Omen, and Godfrey, the First Elden Lord. The third Talisman Pouch is acquired by speaking to Finger Reader Enia at the Roundtable Hold once players have obtained two Great Runes. Additionally, players also have the option to sell the Old Lord’s Talisman for 1,000. Selling the legendary item may be the best option for non-magic users or those who have dedicated their slots to other talismans, like the Blessed Dew Talisman in Elden Ring.
