Nokron, Eternal City is a place in Elden Ring that will only open up after a certain demigod has been defeated. It is also tied to the questline of another NPC. Here’s how you can get here.

    How to Reach Nokron, Eternal City

    First things first, before you can reach Nokron, you must first trigger the Radahn Festival. You must then defeat Starscourge Radahn in the open battlefield beyond Redmane Castle in Caelid.

    Once you’ve defeated this powerful demigod, a meteorite will come crashing into the Earth. Its place of impact is your entryway towards Nokron, the Eternal City.

    You will find the entrance to Nokron in between Mistwood Ruins and Fort Height in Limgrave. Refer to the image below for the exact location of the impact site.

    Once you arrive at this location, you immediately see the change in the environment brought upon by the fallen meteorite. Stick to the edges of the cliff and look for the ledges that lead deeper underground. Keep descending and you will eventually find a rectangular hole in the side of the cliff. Enter this hole to proceed.

    From here, keep descending and continue heading forward. In just a few moments, you will finally arrive at Nokron, the Eternal City.

    From here, jump onto the roofs and the narrow pathways and keep pressing forward. You’ll eventually find a window on the left you can jump into to enter a building. From here, start descending and head towards the door ahead. Your first Site of Grace in this level is just beyond this door.

    What You Can Do in Nokron, Eternal City

    Ranni from Elden Ring.

    The most popular reason to go to Nokron is to continue Ranni’s questline. Once you’re here, you can simply continue through the level until you reach Night’s Sacred Ground, a place that holds the Treasure of Nokron, the Fingerslayer Blade. This is the item Ranni needs you to obtain.

    Other than that, Nokron also houses a ton of incredible items such as the Mimic Tear Spirit Ash, multiple Larval Tears which is used to Respec in Elden Ringthe Black Whetblade, and more.

    You can also reach the Deeproot Depths via the Siofra Aqueduct in Nokron.
