Elden Ring Dectus Medallion Left & Right Pieces Locations

Our guides entail how to use the grand lift of Dectus by finding left & right Dectus Medallion pieces in Elden Ring to arrive Altus Plateau.

Elden Ring is by far the best game FromSoftware has released since introducing the players to the Soulsborne series nearly a decade ago. Puzzles, item pieces scattered at far ends, and hidden maps that hint at valuables are the mantra of the Elden Ring. If you have made decent progress and have reached the grand lift of Dectus, then you’d be scratching your head for hours as to how the lift operates. It is because you will need a Dectus Medallion, which is broken into left and right Dectus Medallion pieces.

Dectus Medallion Locations In Elden Ring

Most players have been searching the web for what to do after beating or killing Rennala, Queen of the Moon. While many veteran tarnished ones figure out where to go, in case you still don’t know, you should reach the grand lift of Dectus to make story progression. However, reaching this place is a struggle, but once you’re there, you’ll be amazed that you need two more pieces of the puzzle to make the grand lift Dectus operate.

Summary of the Medallion Locations:

Dectus Medallion Left Piece Location

To begin the process of activating the grand lift of Dectus in Elden Ring, you need to visit a place called Fort Haight. This is an early game location; you probably have already visited this or the nearest Site of Grace.

After reaching Fort Haight’s door, ignore archers, brutes, and other enemies and head towards your left. Take the stairs, and you will reach a ladder that goes up. I advise that you watch out for a knight whose weapon deals bleed damage.

Climb the ladder, and you will find a chest right in front of you. Then, open it and obtain the Elden Ring left piece of Dectus Medallion. You can clear the fort from enemies and loot a few valuables there before moving on to collecting the right piece of medallion. Or, you can just fast-travel and skip the trouble of killing enemies in Fort Haight.

Once you’ve reached Fort Faroth’s door, take a left and head straight towards the ladder that takes you up. I suggest that you ignore the enemies for now, as they may be overpowered for you.

As always, you can clear the fort for valuables or just skip it all and move towards Grand Lift of Dectus to progress the storyline of Elden Ring.

Open up the open-world map of Elden Ring and look for the Site of Grace as shown in the image here. Fast travel to it, and you’d be ready to activate the Grand Lift of Dectus after hoisting the medallion.

In my experience, finding Dectus Medallion pieces can be a challenging task if you have no idea or hint where to find them. Luckily, my guide will solve this problem by pointing you in the exact direction to go and collecting both halves of the medallion. Before moving forward to Altus Plateau, you must beat a good number of bosses, acquire decent gear, and level up because the difficulty curve significantly increases as you progress this part of the Elden Ring.

That is pretty much everything you need to know about Dectus Medallion left and right locations. We found the left Medallion piece while roaming in the Elden Ring’s map during the early hours. However, finding the right Medallion piece in Caelid took a lot of effort and exploration. How has your experience been so far? Did you find our guide useful?
