Carian Study Hall

8ef42fdc 7aba 4cb4 8906 15ad073dfc1f

A large library-like location full of spectres and magic users that leads to the Divine Tower of Liurnia. Using the Carian Inverted Statue unlocks an alternative version of the map.

Carian Study Hall is a Location in Elden Ring. The Carian Study Hall is found in the Liurnia of the Lakes region. Take the Elevator up from the Study Hall Entrance Sites of Grace. Although you will be able to access this area immediately, using the Carian Inverted Statue (obtained through Ranni the Witch's quest) on the pedestal near the beginning of the map will unlock an alternative version of this map.

Each area has a tough Preceptor NPC that will teleport around and attempt to hit you with magic. They will both not spawn after being killed.

Note that only the alternative version of the map has the item needed to complete Fia's quest as it unlocks the Divine Tower of Liurnia.

Carian Study Hall Walkthrough

Carian Study Hall has a secret area that gives you access to the Divine Tower of Liurnia. You have to have progressed Ranni's questline enough for her to give you the Carian Inverted Statue. Place this statue on the desk with the globe by the entrance of the study hall and a cutscene will play. You'll find the hidden area past a window in the elevator shaft.

      After beating Miriam I found this to be an easy rune farming site for level ~40-70. ~5.5K runes in a couple minutes. Lots of ghost nobles will keep respawning and they are slow, predictable, and die in 1-2 hits.

        I was able to make it to the tower after getting to the upside down and riding the thing down... but still why is the elevator shaped like spiral steps? Is there any way to walk on the steps themselves?

        Seems odd there would be some spiral steps if it is just an elevator.

        • Anonymous

          got to the top of rafters , how to you go up the spiral stairs in the non inverted one
          its about dum you cant go any further up there's no ladder unless theres a switch but theres not even a walk through for the non inverted one

            Miriam is a piece of cake. Longbow and 30 arrows, on the top floor of the place. Her magic will always hit the balustrade while your bow wont. Or, just repeatedly shoot her to interrupt her casting.

              On the top floor after killing Miriam there's a ladder you can take up to balance on beans and fight rats. Is there a treasure? Up to you to find out

              • I haven't seen anyone else mention this, but in the regular (non-inverted) version of this tower, you can jump off of the first lift early and end up in a weird doorway. You can see this doorway as you are riding up the lift. It looks pointless because the doorway just leads into a flooded room, and jumping in kills you instantly; however, I jumped in and received the spell Lucidity upon death, which helps with sleep and madness. I'm not sure if this spell is something you're supposed to get from the inverted version of the tower since I wasn't interested in doing Ranni's questline, but I think it's strange that you can get this spell here... has anyone else found this?

                • Anonymous

                  So you’re telling me I can’t shoot a arrow at the very top to hit the upside button? Duped by a message again

                    Ambush Shard was fantastic against Miriam since you don't have to line of sight the spell, just be close enough to be within range. Also useful against fingers in the reversed map.

                      The huge water basin at the bottom of the main room reminds me of the Research Hall from Bloodborne or the wax pool from the Grand Archives in DS3

                      • This area is a clever reference to Zelda Ocarina of time - Forest temple, which had those hand-like monster and where you were able to reverse the floor too. Brought me back!

                          Can't confirm Selvius appearing in the manor. Personally I think it was someone not paying attention that the name is Miriam, as Miriam appears here twice, once for each phase of the tower.

                            It’s obvious but once you get to Miriams final phase where she’s teleporting, just shoot arrows at her

                              if youre level ~30-ish rn and havent really explored liurnia of the lakes yet, i can recommend beating miriam and then using the dungeon to farm money, bc one trip to the highest floor killing everything in your path is relatively easy, doesnt take too much time and gives you at least like 8000 runes, which for me at that point was still a lot of money and when going multiple times it helps a lot for levelling

                                Miriam utterly wrecked me first time through playing as a sorcerer, as she did everything I did but better. Second time through one a greataxe character was much easier, just run at her and roll through the bow shots and its straightforward enough to wear her down.

                                  As a caster, this NPC was not hard. She staggers with each spell I cast and the magic swordsmen can be ignored almost completely. Third try for the kill. Great farm location (223/swordsman) when she's dead.

                                      Beat this one with Uchigatana +3, Bloodhound’s Step and Loretta’s Greatbow spell. Bloodhound’s Step was useful to dodge the arrow spell and get close to her. The last bit was difficult because of the constant teleportation that I had to use Loretta’s Greatbow spell.

                                        Came here without the key item. You can climb up into the rafters and sneak, then drop down on Miriam's head when you lose aggro. After you do this she won't teleport again so Try Beating To A Pulp.

                                          Avoid this place entirely until you acquire the hourglass.

                                          The great rune here is a quest item and is not useful until you progress further into an NPC questline much later.

                                          The NPC is clearly leveled with this in mind. They are a cakewalk.

                                            I lured her down the elevator, hid around the corner, popped my 1-free-hit physick and ran past her and activated the elevator. She fell to her death. I don't mess around with these ridiculous NPC invaders.

                                              Don't fight until you can invert the hall. Then drive them to the top where they start teleporting around being super annoying. Have to do enough damage that they stay there.
                                              Then go invert the place. Bam dead

                                                If you just want to progress the quest you can just run by the invader.
                                                - Flip the tower, jump down the elevator on a ledge, kill or run by the hands and take a right.
                                                - Drop down, run to the center, turn right and keep running along the wall. At the end drop down.
                                                - Invader can't hurt you from this point.
                                                - Drop down further onto the wooden beams. Look down where you can see an elevator in the center.
                                                - Make your way over there by stairs on dropping down. Ride the elevator down.
                                                - Exit the building, get Grace.
                                                - Mount up and fight the blob or just run by.

                                                  Bad enemy design. That fight against Preceptor Miriam was boring, tiresome and stupid. If you're melee, just buy a crossbow, some bolts and kukris for the third phase. I've beat her with a paladin bleed build.

                                                      Best way I found to kill her is to go up the ladder at the top and she'll aggro sometimes and slowly walk to the ladder where she will climb it. She wont tele away there.

                                                        tip: you can roll INTO her arrow shots if theres distance between you two. You'll eat the shot if you roll point blank but you go through the shot if she fires it far away from you

You should shoot them while they are taking aim as that's when they are the slowest.

Not too much of a problem, another nice addition to my sorcery collection.

The fight begins when you ascend upstairs, basic zombie nobles will appear through out the ZONE not the fight... meaning you can run ahead of the NPC, trigger these very basic units, kill them, and run back to kill the NPC. She has 3 primary attacks whilst teleporting, the one you MUST watch out for is her Magical arrow which will explode on contact. The battle is basically like this until stage 4 (her fourth major teleport) where she ascends around the library of the tower where she will begin teleporting all throughout the fight to bait you into more mobs (you can trigger these mobs like before though and deal with them without her there). It then becomes a bit of a kite fight where you can bait her as much as she's baiting you... Simple ways to combat her are
                                                                        Quickly throwing darts

I prefered throwing darts as it was a rare moment to utilize them to great effect... I would rate this NPC about a 5/10 on difficulty. Scary at first, easy to learn, easier to beat once you get the rhythm. good luck have fun.

The first fight with the mage was absolutely dreadful. The second one is pure pure garbage. The later sections of this game including bosses like Melania are so poorly thought out it blows my mind. It stuns me how awful this area is. And the second time through is so bad I can't possibly imagine they weren't told in play testing how horrendous it is.

                                                                          • Anonymous

After the elevator, avoid being in the same corridor as her, if you're not in a straight line, her arrow cant go high enough and will always hit the wooden structure, your arrows, however, can go over it and hit her with ease. Even if you don't have a build for bows, you can safely chip away her health as she will never get close and none of her attacks will be able to hit you.

It's south east of the Artist's Shack. The name can be misleading, since it's not anywhere near the Caria Manor.
