There is an area in Elden Ring called the Roundtable Hold that serves a similar function to the Nexus in Demon’s Souls. This little hub area is a place where you can get supplies, upgrade weapons, and talk to characters. It is a significant zone for gameplay and narrative reasons, but it is not immediately available. Luckily, the process of getting to the zone is a pretty simple one once you know how to do it. This guide will explain how to get to the Roundtable Hold in Elden Ring.
How To Get To The Roundtable Hold in Elden Ring
To get to the Roundtable Hold, you first must accept Melina’s accord. She will appear after you activate more than four sites of Grace and then rest at anyone of them. Accept her accord, and she will give you Torrent and then tell you to head to Stormveil Castle. You will be offered to travel to the Hold after fighting a boss that you are led to by the Guiding Grace. Guiding Grace is the yellow light you see when coming from specific Sites of Grace, this game’s version of bonfires. You can see this guiding light coming from the Sites and on your map. The first boss you will get pointed to is Margit the Fall Omen at the entrance of Stormveil Castle. Challenge him and win or lose, rest at any Site of Grace. Melina will then appear and take you to the Roundtable Hold.
The Roundtable Hold is not an area that you can access from the overworld and can only be entered and exited by using the fast travel with the map. The icon for the Hold is in the bottom left corner of the map and can be accessed at any time that you are able to fast travel. You will find vendors, Hewg the Blacksmith, and several NPC that will come and go over the course of the game. Make sure to talk to them to get new items and unlock new quests.
