Elden Ring Caelid Map Fragments Location

The Elden Ring Caelid map fragments location isn't that hard to find, especially when you know where to look with this handy guide.

If you want to uncover the entirety of the in-game map of this freshly released action RPG, you need to obtain map fragments in Elden Ring. For this purpose, the Elden Ring Caelid map fragments location is going to be an integral part of your journey, and in this guide, I’ll be going over just that. Keep on reading for a detailed tutorial on how to unearth the map markings of the Caelid region and explore the area effectively at your convenience. 

  • Caelid is just one part of a massive picture. Read our map fragments guide and obtain all map fragments in the Lands Between.  
Key Highlights
  • Map fragments are required to uncover the hidden parts of the world map.
  • Caelid is a region in the Lands Between, characterized by a blood-red sky hinting at impending doom.
  • There’s a total of two map fragments to find in Caelid. One is called the Caelid map fragment, and the other is the Dragonbarrow map fragment.
  • After arriving in Caelid, go south through the Swamp of Aeonia, past the site of grace, to find the map fragment beside a merchant on the main road.
  • You’ll find the Dragonbarrow map fragment along the northwestern main road from the Sellia Crystal Tunnel grace site.

Quite thankfully, Caelid map fragments’ locations aren’t hard to dig out as compared to some of the other shards of the map in Elden Ring. Let me break down the two map pieces, so you can have it easier finding them both.

The first map fragment in Caelid is found close to the Southern Aeonia Swamp Bank Site of Grace, right up the main road at the base of an obelisk. To get here from Limgrave, which is the region where you first start out, you need to head east from The First Step Site of Grace. As soon as you travel far enough, you’re going to come in contact with a place called Dragon-Burnt Ruins.

This section can be promptly utilized to get to Caelid for the first time. When you get there, you’ll have to find the entrance to the ruins and go down them. The following screenshot depicts the starting area of the Dragon-Burnt Ruins.

When you finally enter the area and make your way to the end of the tunnel, you’re going to pop open a chest. Surprisingly, doing that will “ensnare you in a transporter trap” and take you straight to the outskirts of Caelid.

When you get to the other side, you’re going to find yourself in a cavernous tunnel yet again. Get out of this place as soon as you can. When you finally reach the outside area, you’ll observe how you’re in a completely different place now.

From there, you will have to gallop across the swamp area on your horse. Be mindful not to travel on foot or the swamp will take you in. Keep heading south past the Swamp of Aeonia until you see the Caelid title strip appear on the screen. Now, pop open your map and you’ll observe the map fragment icon in close vicinity. There’s also going to be the aforementioned Southern Aeonia Swamp Bank Site of Grace nearby.

Another helpful hint is the presence of a merchant who’s sitting in a campfire. The Caelid map fragment location is right beside the NPC along the main road. The following screenshot depicts the exact location of the map piece. 

Go up to the map-containing monument and pick up the shard of the Caelid map. You might as well be back on your journey afterward. 

Let me now talk about the other map fragment of the Caelid region so you can unlock all of this area and explore it to your heart’s content.

Map: Dragonbarrow Location

Getting to the Dragonbarrow map fragment is easy once you have a precursor to start from. In my case, I’ll take the Southern Aeonia Swamp Bank Site of Grace as a starting point and make our way from there. You simply have to go northeast from the said checkpoint until you find the Sellia Crystal Tunnel Site of Grace. Even then, however, the ride won’t end.

The next step is to make your way northwest until you see the map fragment location on your map. Check out the following image for a clear visual illustration of where you need to go to find the Dragonbarrow map fragment. 

You’ll travel past multiple different areas, such as Caelem Ruins and Greyoll’s Dragonbarrow until you finally arrive at the desired location. The Dragonbarrow map fragment obelisk is just going to be downhill on the right side of the road.

That’s about it for Caelid map fragment locations. I’ve gone ahead and gone over both of the relevant map pieces in the region with step-by-step instructions. You probably won’t be needing to ask for further guidelines now. With that said, the time is nigh to conclude the article. 


Each region has its own unique map fragment(s). As I’ve discussed Caelid in this write-up, we’ve discovered that Caelid comprises two distinct shards of the in-game map. One is called Caelid itself whereas the other one is known as Dragonbarrow. The guide at hand has covered the location of both of these map fragments, so you can get to them effortlessly.
