Similar to the Grand Lift of Dectus, the Grand Lift of Rold is an important location in Elden Ring. This particular location can be accessed after defeating a certain boss and reaching the far end of Leyndell Royal Capital.

Reaching Leyndell Royal Capital

Firstly, to reach the Grand Lift of Rold in Elden Ring, players are required to reach Leyndell, Royal Capital. Reaching Leyndell will allow you to acquire the map fragments for this massive area and you will have tons of weapons to acquire, field bosses to beat, armor sets to obtain, and much more to do here in Elden Ring.

Moreover, the map fragment also will play a vital part in the location of the route to the Grand lift of Rold.

Once you get your hands on this particular map fragment, make your way to Leyndell’s main road that further takes you to Site of Grace located near the Avenue Balcony area in Leyndell Royal Capital. From there, continue your way towards the South to the main road.

After reaching the main road, move towards the East until a Large door. After that when you open the said door, you will now get access to the Eastern part of the Leyndell Royal Capital city in Elden Ring.

After opening the large door, you will spot a series of staircases on your front, and to your right will be enemies in groups. Just follow the straight path and be aware of enemies, and preferably ignore them and keep moving.

Climbing these stairs, you will come across an elevator lever at the far left end. Although this lever doesn’t belong to Grand Lift of Rold, it plays a vital role in your task to reach its routes in Elden Ring.

Reaching Forbidden Lands To Access Rold Lift
