First things first, it's best to establish where you have to go on the critical path - and that's Castle Stormveil. You'll discover this when you light the first Site of Grace - think of these resting points as Elden Ring's bonfires - with the light emerging from the top pointing you in the direction you must go next. Varre, the character nearby, will also say the Castle is your first port of call - and if you look to the west, you can see it on the cliffs.
Once you have settled on a starting class and starting Keepsake item, you should first work out how to level up, how to respec and use Ashes of War.Need some direction from there? Our Elden Ring walkthrough and Elden Ring boss order can help with where to go next, but we also recommend hunting down Golden Seeds, Sacred Tears, Crystal Tears, Talismans and some of our best weapon and best armor choices.If you are approaching the end game, we can help with the Volcano Manor quest and Rykard, Haligtree Secret Medallion locations, solving the Ordina, Liturgical Town puzzle, the Millicent quest, Commander Niall, Morgott, Godskin Duo, Maliketh and Malenia.
