The Converted Fringe Tower is a landmark in Elden Ring, located atop the ridge east of the Frenzied Flame Village Outskirts in Northeast Liurnia of the Lakes. Although Tarnished can freely enter its ground floor interior, they cannot ascend its spire without breaking the magical seal barring the stairwell doorway. The solution to dispelling the barrier within Converted Fringe Tower in Elden Ring is based on the message that can be found on the floor inside that reads, “May erudition light the way.” To get started, Tarnished adventurers must head to the Debate Parlor in the Raya Lucaria Academy.
Converted Fringe Tower Solution in Elden Ring
To solve the puzzle of the Converted Fringe Tower in Elden Ring, players will need two things: a Glintstone Helm and the Erudition Gesture. First, the Glintstone Helm can be found near the courtyard outside the Debate Parlor. Follow the narrow cliffside trail to the west of the central fountain to discover a crab with the Karolos Glintstone Crown.
Next, Elden Ring players must acquire an Academy Glintstone Key, separate from the one they obtained near Glintstone Dragon Smarag. To find a second one, start from the Debate Parlor and follow the staircase west of the courtyard to a hidden pathway atop the academy’s rooftops. Continue westward until reaching the Church of the Cuckoo’s roof. Enter through the windows above and drop from the rafters onto the chandelier with a lootable corpse. Pick up the second Glintstone Key and travel to the Church of Irith, the location of Sorcerer Thops.
Give Sorcerer Thops the Academy Glintstone Key, and players will be rewarded with the Erudition Gesture. Next, go to the Converted Fringe Tower and wear the Karolos Glintstone Crown. Standing in front of the interior statue, perform Erudition to break the tower’s magical seal. Now that Tarnished have uncovered the solution for the Converted Fringe Tower’s puzzle in Elden Ring, they can reach the top to acquire the two Sorceries, Gavel of Haima and Cannon of Haima.
Elden Ring is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
