Illusory Walls are the Hidden Walls of Elden Ring, that must be struck to reveal a hidden path beyond. These walls are not immediately obvious, but if you find yourself stuck in a location without a way to progress, it is very likely that you have to hit a nearby wall. This page does not feature all hidden walls in Elden Ring.
