The Elden Ring Ritual Sword Talisman is a boosting item that adds a buff to your attacking power while you’re at full HP. This damage effect acts on all the attacks, including primary attacks, spells, and special skills. Getting this crucial item is necessary as it plays a vital role in enhancing your combat skills.

Ritual Sword Talisman Effects

The Ritual Sword Talisman gives a 10% boost to your attacking power while the character is at maximum hp. The effect will only occur while you’re in full health. If you take damage and your health bar gets depleted, you have to gain your HP back for the Talisman to activate its buff.

How To Get The Ritual Talisman

Find the Ritual Sword Talisman in the Lux Ruins, southeast of the Altus Plateau. The small dungeon, located beyond Erdtree Hill’s forest, has two rooms. Defeat the demi-human boss inside to obtain the Talisman.

Reach Lux Ruins by heading to the Grand Lift of Dactus, descending the slope towards the ruins, and crossing Erdtree Gazing Hill to reach Altus Highway Junction. I advise taking caution through the forest, as demi-humans guard the area and will attack if you’re spotted. Ensure you are well-equipped with combat weapons and items.

Once you cross past the forest and make your way to the dungeon, you will face the demi-human Queen Gilika, who is guarding the door to the chamber that holds the Elden Ring Ritual Sword Talisman. Gilika is a furious monster that will attack you aggressively, especially if you get too close to her. 

After numerous tries I managed to understand a few key tips, which are:

  • When fighting the Queen, listen for her loud roar before each attack and respond accordingly.
  • Dodge her lunging attacks by performing well-timed side dodge-rolls.
  • After she finishes a combo attack, move to the side and strike while she is vulnerable.
  • Maintain distance during her charging phases and target her legs to limit her mobility.

Once you kill the boss, the room will automatically get unlocked. Head inside the chamber and open the chest to get the Talisman
