Key Takeaway

You can get to the Hermit Village by entering Mt. Gelmir from the Wyndham Ruins in Altus Plateau. From there, go north and all the way around Mt. Gelmir until you reach the Hermit Village, which is located in the southeastern section of the region.

There’s a place in Elden Ring called the Hermit Village. Although completely unassuming, you’ll need to pass through this place to get one of the game’s most powerful spells. It’s a treacherous path, but the journey will be worth it.

    Where Is the Hermit Village?

    The Hermit Village is located in Mt. Gelmir, in the western region of the Altus Plateau.

    It’s one of the smaller regions in the game, but its geography can make it confusing to navigate.

    The Hermit Village is situated in the southeastern region of Mt. Gelmir. There’s one very specific path you’ll need to take if you’re to arrive at the Hermit Village.

    The Path to the Hermit Village

    There are various paths you can take to get to Mt. Gelmir. To get to the Hermit Village, take the path that starts at the Wyndham Ruins in western Altus Plateau.

    Start at the Erdtree-Gazing Hill Site of Grace, then make your way up to the Wyndham Ruins. Once you get here, you’ll be greeted by a Tibia Mariner that’s capable of summoning a giant skeleton.

    You can fight this Tibia Mariner, or you can simply run past him and ride west to get to the Seethewater River Site of Grace.

    From here, ride north and keep following this path. This path will somewhat make you go around Mt. Gelmir. Keep going forward until you reach Fort Laiedd.

    Activate or rest at the Seethewater Terminus Site of Grace outside Fort Laiedd. Ignore the fort for now and the enemies surrounding it. Make your way to the south of the fort and continue onwards until you reach a lava-filled area where you’ll be faced with a Magma Wyrm.

    Once again, either fight and defeat this boss or ride past it.

    Continue down this path and you’ll reach the Craftsman’s Shack. There’s another Site of Grace here, so be sure to activate this too.

    Proceed northeast from the Craftsman’s Shack and you’ll arrive at the Hermit Village.

    What To Expect at the Hermit Village

    The most notable item you can get from the Hermit Village is the Comet Azur sorcery. It’s arguably one of the game’s most powerful spells, and it’s also classified as a legendary sorcery.

    You’ll get the Comet Azur sorcery by interacting with Mastur Azur, whom you’ll find sitting north of Hermit Village. He is guarded by multiple Glintstone Sorcerers and Demi-Human Queen Maggie.
