Elden Ring: How to Get to Mohgwyn [Location]

What is Mohgwyn in Elden Ring?

Mohgwyn in Elden Ring is actually short for Mohgwyn Palace. It is one of the many different regions of the map that are located in the Lands Between. Mohgwyn, in particular, is situated below ground level, and you’ll find it surfacing beneath the Caelid region.

Now, the fact of the matter is that there are two possible ways that you can use to get to Mohgwyn in the game. Since we’re aiming toward covering an in-depth guide on Mohgwyn, we’ll go over both of these ways for your convenience. That way, you’ll find your options flexible enough to decide which one to shoot for accordingly.  

Key Takeaways
  • Mohgwyn Palace, a legacy dungeon in Elden Ring, houses Mohg The Lord of Blood, a demigod.
  • Two ways to reach Mohgwyn: Complete Varre’s questline and receive Pureblood Knight’s Medal, or access a teleporter in Consecrated Snowfield.
  • Varre is found near First Steps Site of Grace; follow his questline to receive the teleportation item.
  • Alternatively, access Consecrated Snowfield using the medallion of Rold halves at the Mountain Top of the Giants lift.
  • In Consecrated Snowfield’s western region, find a waygate leading to Mohg The Lord of Blood, a Marika’s Children member and abductor of Miquella, Malenia’s brother

Pathway #2: Find the Secret Teleporter in the Consecrated Snowfield Region

Don’t want to bother yourself with White-Faced Varré’s questline? Or is it too demanding for you? There’s another way you can get to Mohgwyn, and that is by unlocking the Consecrated Snowfield area first. Similar to how Mohgwyn Palace stands in the Lands Between, Consecrated Snowfield is another purely secret area that you will have to dig out on your own. 

Follow these steps:

  1. Unlock Consecrated Snowfield: First, you need to unlock the Consecrated Snowfield area. To do this, follow a separate guide to obtain the two halves of the Secret Haligtree Medallion and use it at the Grand Lift of Rold to access the Consecrated Snowfield.
  2. Start at Inner Consecrated Snowfield: Once you have access to the Consecrated Snowfield, start at the Inner Consecrated Snowfield Site of Grace.

  3. Head Northwest: From the Inner Consecrated Snowfield Site of Grace, head northwest through the snowy landscape.
  4. Look for Red Leaves: Keep an eye out for an area with red-colored leaves mixed in the snow on the ground. This is an indicator that you’re heading in the right direction.

  5. Reach the Cliff: Continue southwest until you reach the end of the area, where you’ll find a cliff.
  6. Jump Down: Jump down from the cliff, and you’ll see a Waygate nearby.

  7. Interact with the Waygate: Approach the Waygate and interact with it. You’ll receive a prompt asking if you want to travel to the allotted destination. Select “Yes” to proceed.
  8. Loading Screen: After selecting “Yes,” you’ll experience a loading screen.

  9. Arrive at Mohgwyn Palace: You will find yourself in a dark cave with a torch. Follow the path outside the cavernous tunnel, and you’ll arrive somewhere in Mohgwyn Palace.

Please note that some players have reported issues with the Waygate not working initially. If you encounter this problem, make sure you’re not being invaded by another player, as concurrent invasions can block access to Waygates. Additionally, some random events may trigger the teleporter to activate later in the game if it didn’t work initially.

This pathway provides an alternative method to reach Mohgwyn Palace if you prefer not to complete White-Faced Varré’s questline. Choose the pathway that suits your playstyle and progression in Elden Ring.

Personally, we recommend completing White-Faced Varré’s questline, so you can explore the areas that come in the wake of it and gradually get to Mohgwyn Palace hassle-free.

However, exploration is the ultimate key to getting the most out of Elden Ring, and the title encourages that itself by rewarding you with legendary armaments, upgrade materials, and other awesome items. In this guide, we’ve talked about the Mohgwyn Palace in full, including the couple of different ways you can get to the area in question. After thoroughly reading the written instructions, you’ll be all set to find Mohgwyn in no time.

As always, eXputer wishes you happy gaming!
