Elden Ring: How to Complete Caria Manor
On this page, we're going to explain how to complete Caria Manor and reach the boss battle against Royal Knight Loretta.
Caria Manor Walkthrough: How to Find It
Caria Manor is in the very northernmost section of the Liurnia of the Lakes region. In order to reach it you'll need to pass the illusionary wall of the Kingsrealm Ruins and then follow the path to the Main Caria Manor Gate. Do keep in mind that as you ride this pathway you'll be bombarded by Glintstone Arrows, so be sure to be nimble with Torrent and avoid this hail of attacks. Once you reach the Site of Grace, you'll be safe to begin exploring Caria Manor.
Caria Manor Walkthrough: Explore the Courtyard
Brace yourself, because immediately inside the Caria Manor is a huge courtyard absolutely infested with Spider Hands, both big and small. A lot of these are traps, hiding under the ground or in the wall, and as visibility is low you can take a real beating. Move slowly and carefully, paying close attention to your surroundings, and with scepticism of any corpses with loot. A lot of these have Spider Hands hiding beneath them before you have chance to pick it up. Explore the left side first for Glintstone Fireflies, Rimed Crystal Buds, and a Golden Rune . Kill the Spider Hands for lots of Somber Smithing Stones, and search the right side for the Glintstone Craftman's Cookbook , inside a small room with a Sorcerer inside, the Ice Crest Shield, and, just beyond the pathway behind the fountain, a Teardrop Scarab that drops the Carian Piercer spell.
Work your way up the main pathway into the building where there's a Ghost sitting on a chair, then head up the stairs for the Manor Lower Level Site of Grace. Inside the chapel, on the opposite end of the room from the Site of Grace, you'll find a corpse with a Smithing Stone  that you should loot.
Caria Manor Walkthrough: Find the Sword of Night and Flame and Urumi
Exit the chapel and follow the walkway until you have a choice of which path to take. Follow the northernmost route first, ensuring to deal with any ghoulish Knights along the way. Follow the path all the way to a dead-end, and a corpse you can loot with a Rune Arc. Then backtrack slightly and look over the ledge to the northwest and a lower ledge you can jump to. Drop down a second time to reach a ladder and descend it for a small room with a treasure chest with the Sword of Night and Flame inside. Take your prize and exit the door back out into the courtyard, then retrace your steps back to the Manor Lower Level.
This time, take the eastern walkway, almost like a straight line from the Site of Grace. Once you reach a staircase to your left, look over the edge and drop down. Take the left path and look under the wooden stairs for a Golden Rune . Then take the opposite pathway for an area with Spider Hands and a corpse you can loot for an Urumi. Keep following the pathway around to an Abductor Virgin, and beyond it is a dead body with a Somber Smithing Stone . Warp back to the Manor Lower Level and this time take the staircase you jumped down from previously into the Manor Upper Level.
Caria Manor Walkthrough: Get the Troll Knight's Sword and Face Royal Knight Loretta
Take the lift up to the Manor Upper Level and interact with the Site of Grace in the room directly ahead. As you exit from this room there's a Site of Grace directly ahead. Dispatch the Direwolves in this area and loot the body for three Rimed Crystal Buds. Then follow the main path to a staircase with three Sorcerers and a Troll Knight. If you kill the Troll Knight you'll get the Troll Knight's Sword, but you can circumvent this fight by taking the ladder to the left of the archway and going around these fearsome foes.
Follow the staircase up and at the mid-point follow the eastern path around the side of the wall for a Smithing Stone . Then go all the way up to the top of the stairs and look behind you for a Golden Rune . In the next room, with all the chairs, you can head straight into the middle of the pool for the fight with Royal Knight Loretta, which will unlock access to the Three Sisters region once complete. For more information of this fight, refer to the following: How to Beat Royal Knight Loretta. Remember to interact with the Royal Moongazing Grounds Site of Grace once you're done.
