Preserving Boluses in the Elden Ring can be found in specific locations throughout the Lands Between. One shack, named the Shack of the Rotting, contains five boluses in North Caelid. In the Leyendell Royal Capital, you can find one bolus, and the Siofra River has a single preserving bolus piece. The Nomadic Merchant sells three boluses on the Caelid Highway towards the North. In total, there are ten boluses scattered in the Lands Between, eliminating the need for crafting.

  • North Caelid, specifically the Shack of the Rotting, is a prime location to find a significant number of boluses. You can acquire five boluses for free in this area.
  • While the Nomadic Merchant offers the option to purchase three boluses for 2500 Runes each, but I would advise crafting boluses yourself, especially considering how frequently you encounter the debilitating Scarlet Rot.
