What to do first in Elden Ring: best route, weapons and key map locations

The world of Elden Ring is by far the largest of From Software, and that can make it very confusing. This is true even if you’re used to how the studio’s games are typically structured. Yes, there are rays of light to guide you somewhat, but the open world of Elden Ring is so vast and full of hidden areas that without a few hints about what to do first in Elden Ring, you can easily get lost and be destroyed by a crowd of very powerful monsters. However, use these tips and life will be a lot easier.

Visit Elleh . Church

The floating gold dust on your first Site of Grace will push you this way anyway, but be sure to visit Elleh’s church as soon as possible. It is a convenient base for most of your West Limgrave activities and the hub for a number of major events. Be sure to give the Tree Sentinel a wide berth unless you’re lucky. This boss can be dealt with better after you upgrade your weapon once or twice.
