A cave system at the highest point of Mt. Gelmir, made into a home by a family of Demi-Humans hiding their maddened Queen.
Volcano Cave is a Location in Elden Ring. The Volcano Cave is found in Mt. Gelmir, in the north. Players can reach this location by travelling to the Ninth Mt. Gelmir Campsite Site of Grace and passing the nearby bridge, then hugging the cliff as you travel along the pass north, passing some soldiers and some demi-humans. The cave will be in the cliff on your left.

Volcano Cave Walkthrough
Just past the Site of Grace, you will find a group of Demi-Humans. Defeat them and then head west to find a Golden Rune (6) on a corpse at the edge of the path. Drop down onto the ledge below to another group of Demi-Humans but don't drop into the pit with the Demi-Human Chieftain just yet. Instead, follow the path in the north into a larger cavern, encountering more Demi-Humans along the way. Inside the cavern, you can find Arteria Leaf x3, Sliver of Meat x6 and a Coil Shield among the bodies.
Backtrack to where you saw the Demi-Human Chieftain, drop down and defeat it. You can find Lump of Flesh x5 on a corpse in the corner. The mist gate towards the boss' chamber can be found in the east from here.
Boss: Demi-Human Queen Margot
Margot is a very straight forward fight. Unlike other Demi-Human Queens, she will not be using any magic attacks as she is gripped by a bestial madness. Instead, she will use her staff to smack you and slam the ground. All her staff attacks are highly telegraphed and are easily dodged. You can also maintain your distance as the cavern is large enough. After a certain point, Margot will toss her staff at you and resort to using her limbs to perform swiping and slamming attacks. She will also perform a leap and attempt to bite her target but overall, her speed remains the same and she has lots of openings in between her slow attacks.
Defeating Margot will award the Jar Cannon as well as 8,250 Runes.
Elden Ring Volcano Cave Gallery and Notes
[other images go here]
Decent and lazy rune farming location for midgame casters. Walk up to the first place in the dungeon where the demihumans are sitting, hit them with an aoe, head back to grace, rinse and repeat. It doesn't give much more than a thousand per run, but only takes a few seconds to do and reset.
The instructions here don't make any sense. You don't have to climb any ladder at all. You start at the grace, turn around and go across the bridge and then North. You'll see the cave on your left once you're right by it. Absolutely no ladders involved to get to it.
Someone mentions the boss here having a one shot mechanic, what is it?
Had to comment...the description of this boss is VERY misleading and in places, completely incorrect. She uses magic. She also has a one shot mechanic that is not even mentioned.
starting from this site of grace halfway across the mountain, go past this site of grace, and to this spot just before a site of grace directly across a wooden bridge from there.
These directions on how to get there are pretty trash. Instead if you have "Ninth Mt. Gelmir Campsite" just go there and head back across the bridge and then north, its a small gap on the left near the end of the path. ignore this nonsense about starting at the Bridge.
Can you rejects stop with the fake "hidden path ahead" just annoying littering the game with your crappy messages
Can use magic and drops 11k runes
anyone knows how to reach the otherside for the corpse with golden rune after first pack of demihumans?
Thank god the boss was weak I came here very under-leveled just so I could get the jar canon and I was not wanting to deal with a super hard boss
Guide says it doesn't use magic but the first thing it did when I entered the cave was cast a glintstone pebble at me. Still, very weak boss.
For people like me who can't read, the site of grace closest to it is BRIDGE of Iniquity, not Road of Iniquity.
Cool unique boss but kind of weak
Cool unique boss but kind of weak
feels like they accidentally put a limgrave dungeon in mt. gelmir. boss died in 4 swings
Maybe it's just a me-problem, but my Ash of War (Mimic) continued fighting the air after the boss was killed... Is that a common thing to happen?
maybe the most underwhelming dungeon. Not bad, but too small and that boss has no hp at all
