To stop the mausoleum's stride, you'll need to clean up around its feet first
Walking Mausoleum are special Locations in Elden Ring. Mausoleums look like giant stone "turtles" and are found throughout the Lands Between and are moving around on giant stone legs, often with bells attached. Players must attack the skull-like deposits on the structure while avoiding damage to get the mausoleum to become accessible. These can appear on either the legs or along the base of the building, the latter of which necessitates jumping on top of it.
Walking Mausoleum Guide for Elden Ring
- Hit the skull-like deposits to make the mausoleum stop and enter it.
- Around Mausoleum there are spectral knights roaming the arena. After bringing Mausoleum down, they disappear.
- Mausoleum can attack by either moving or performing a slam attack (few of them). Direct stomp is a guaranteed death, invaders/regular enemies included.
- Place your Boss Remembrance at the altar to Duplicate it. (Note: You do not have to have the Remembrance with you when you do this. If you previously acquired and used it, you can still receive a duplicate at a later time in your playthrough.)
- Only one use per Mausoleum. Pick wisely!
- There is currently a glitch that causes Remembrances to not show up in the duplication menu. Going away and coming back at a later time seems to fix this issue, sometimes.
- It should be noted that you cannot regain a Remembrance Weapon that you have already obtained (in the same playthrough at least).
- Mausoleums without a bell seem to have a limited pool of Remembrances you can choose from.
(via community testing: Regal Ancestor Spirit, Astel Naturalborn of the Void, Lichdragon Fortissax, Fire Giant, Maliketh, the Black Blade, Dragonlord Placidusax, Hoarah Loux, Warrior and Elden Beast are the only types of bosses with Remembrances that can be duplicated anywhere. Demigod types, like Morgott and Malenia, will work with bell variant Mausoleums only.)
- The Castle Sol and Consecrated Snowfield Mausoleums appear to be bugged for some people where using one of them renders the other unusable but this seems to not apply to everyone.
Players will hear mausoleums as they emit a distinctly loud bell sound as they walk about. They usually have a small roaming area, so they are easy to find. When you first want to access a walking mausoleum, you must either attack the deposits on its feet or use the environment to climb up, jump onto the walking mausoleum and destroy the deposits around the structure itself. This can take considerable time depending on the location.
Once the mausoleum is static, you can enter it at any time to perform a Remembrance Duplication: This is only available once per mausoleum, so pick wisely! Performing this rite will enable you to obtain the multiple Remembrance Weapons (Boss Weapons) and magic that they grant. Boss Armor is not gated behind their remembrances, but you must have defeated them to purchase from Enia at the Roundtable Hold.
Walking Mausoleum Locations
There are a total of 7 walking mausoleums in Elden Ring. Monuments with bells will duplicate any boss remembrance. Monuments without bells will only duplicate the remembrance of a non-shard bearer boss. Each reward can only be received once per playthrough.
- Weeping Peninsula, Bell: In the western area, east of Isolated Merchant's Shack. [Elden Ring Map Link]
- Liurnia of the Lakes, Bell: northeast of Raya Lucaria, in the waters in front of Raya Lucaria Crystal Tunnel Grace. To access this Walking Mausoleum you must travel west of the tunnel entrance. Then you need to use the spirit spring to jump onto the Mausoleum when it walks close enough to the cliff wall. You can experiment with the spirit spring jump and also double jump with Torrent after using the spring and take no fall damage. You can also jump from the tombstones on the northern cliff, but you risk dying if you miss. Once on top of the Mausoleum, knock off enough skull piles to subdue it. The Mausoleum may not move at night time. Alternatively, hitting the legs will stop the mausoleum from moving, then you can snipe enough skulls to get it to kneel using a bow. The various rocks in the area can be used to get the right angle, the skulls are all on and around the grassy area level.
- Liurnia of the Lakes, No Bell: due north of the Mausoleum Compound Grace near Uld Palace Ruins, north of the Church of Vows [Elden Ring Map Link
- Mountaintop of the Giants, Bell: Just outside Castle Sol in the northern area. [Elden Ring Map Link]
- Consecrated Snowfield, Bell: northwest of Ordina, next to the Apostate Derelict Grace. Warning: This one fires magical artillery into the air, bombarding the surroundings until it is subdued. [Elden Ring Map Link]
- Deeproot Depths, Bell: North of the The Nameless Eternal City Grace. Can be jumped upon by climbing on the roots in the area (be careful of the many Basilisks), then you must destroy skulls on the top of the Mausoleum instead of the feet. [Elden Ring Map Link]
