Mohgwyn Palace is a Location in Elden Ring. The Mohgwyn Palace region is found beneath Caelid, but is only accessible from a gateway teleporter in the frozen west of Consecrated Snowfield (northwest of the Yelough Anix Ruins and west of where the Sanguine Noble invades you) or by using the Pureblood Knight's Medal given by White Mask Varré at the end of his questline.
In the lightless depths lies the grave of an ancient civilization. It is here Mohg, the Lord of Blood, is building his palace, to be the seat of his coming dynasty named Mohgwyn. And whatever nightmares that may bring.

Walkthrough for Mohgwyn Palace in Elden Ring
When entering from the waygate in Consecrated Snowfield, you get teleported to a set of caves southeast of Mohgwyn Palace. The caves here are linear, so simply follow the path out and down and you'll be able to grab a Golden Rune (11) and get to the Palace Approach Ledge-Road Site of Grace. Make your way northwest where the slope is littered with Albinaurics and collect a Golden Rune (11), a Smithing Stone (6), and five Bloodroses on the way down. At the bottom, you'll emerge into the main blood-filled lake of Mohgwyn Palace.
If you'd like to grab the map fragment for this area to make navigation easier, keep heading north-northwest until you get to a section with three hunting horn-wielding Albinaurics who can summon large spectral skeletons. Once you get past them, head west to find a ruin, and the single corpse sitting in the middle here has the Map (Mohgwyn Palace). Head up the stairs to quickly grab the Dynasty Mausoleum Entrance Site of Grace.
With our newfound map, it's time to get looting. Back from the slope, you descended earlier from the Palace Approach Ledge-Road, head east to reach the southern section of the lake. On your way, you're likely going to get invaded by a Nameless White Mask. Three of these NPC invaders will attack you at different areas in the blood lake. They have quick attacks and have access to a strong bleed spell that you should try to avoid as best as you can. On the southwestern side of the lake, you'll be able to find the Haligdrake Talisman (+2) and a Ghost Glovewort (9) among some graves by the cliff. In the southeast, on the other hand, you can find a Golden Seed and the Nomadic Warrior's Cookbook (24).
Head back to the northern part of the lake, where you'll find a Smithing Stone (7), Smithing Stone (8), and Golden Rune (12) on the western side. In the middle, in front of a large rock pillar is a Hero's Rune (4). Along the eastern walls are small caves, each filled with loot. In the first cave (from the south) is a Somber Smithing Stone (9) and a Teardrop Scarab that drops the Ash of War: Blood Tax. The second cave is guarded by a few Albinaurics and has a Ghost Glovewort (8) and the Swarm of Flies incantation. The third cave, also guarded by some enemies, houses a Smithing Stone (6) and Golden Rune (13). Hug the eastern wall north and you'll eventually find a Rune Arc.
Make your way back to the Dynasty Mausoleum Site of Grace and head up the stairs in the southwest. In this area, you'll be encountering a bunch of Putrid Corpses. Many of them are fairly docile, not minding even a shoulder bump, while some will run at you and attempt to explode in your face. Whether you decide to take them out or leave them alone, follow the linear path here, grabbing a Smithing Stone (7), Numen's Rune, Stanching Boluses, and eight Bloodroses on your way.
You'll eventually get to a group of Putrid Corpses praising the sky in front of a dark doorway. This doorway leads into a very dark cave, so get your lantern or torch ready. At various points, while exploring the cave, you'll get ambushed by Sanguine Nobles. If you die by their hand, you can respawn at the Stake of Marika right outside the cave's doorway. At the first cave split that you encounter, a Sanguine Noble will appear. Head down the south split before heading north to find the Imprisoned Merchant.
When you head north, you'll immediately find a Lord's Rune in front of you. Continue northeast to get to a ledge overlooking a Great Ghost Glovewort. If you shine your torch down, you'll see a hoard of Putrid Corpses gathering around it. None of them, in particular, are the 'explode in your face' kind, so you can simply run past them to grab the glovewort. Next, head west, where you'll encounter another Sanguine Noble and a Smithing Stone (8) among some gravestones. Continue following the path, picking up the Ghost Glovewort (9) on the way, and you'll eventually emerge outside to the Dynasty Mausoleum Midpoint Site of Grace.
Right ahead are a group of Albinaurics and a Sanguine Noble facing up towards a large statue. You can take them out one by one since they don't seem to have situational awareness. Right in front of the statue is a Somber Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone and if you take a peek on the lower ledge behind the statue, you'll find a Golden Rune (13). From here, look down over the cliff to see a corpse holding a Golden Seed that you can jump to. Watch the pit between your self and the rocky platform. From here, you can either go back the long way or fast travel. As of July 2022 the corpse described above is visible but does not hold any item. It is unknown if this true at all times, or if there is a trigger variable in the individual playthrough (total seeds already collected, etc.) If the corpse has no item feel free to forego the jump & skip to the paragraph below.
Turn around, facing northwest, and take the lift ahead up to a large ruined temple. When you walk in a cutscene plays and the fight against Mohg, Lord of Blood commences. Defeat him and you'll be rewarded with the Remembrance of the Blood Lord and Mohg's Great Rune. The Cocoon of the Empyrean Site of Grace spawns here after his defeat as well.
