There are many mysterious locations and random secrets throughout the Lands Between.
Elden Ring is a game with secret passages, hidden doors, illusory walls, and even illusory walls behind illusory walls.
If you really go looking for more than what you see, there is a lot to be revealed that is usually not so easy to find. Things that seem to be there just to make the setting more interesting often hide environmental storytelling and unique items that you could have easily missed.
I didn’t know where to get the Halo’s Scythe in Elden Ring the first time I got one; it happened out of luck and curiosity.
That’s the case with Lenne’s Rise. This is a structure with a high tower and sealed door, much like Oridys’s Rise, the building in Weeping Peninsula.
The most significant difference between the two is the fact that Lenne’s Rise doesn’t tell you, not even cryptically, what you are supposed to do in order to get in.
That being said, we do know what you’re supposed to do. It took me quite a while to figure it out, which is precisely why this guide now exists. I imagine other players might also have a bit of trouble finding their way in and maybe want some help.
If you are looking for how to get into Lenne’s Rise, look no further. This guide will tell you everything you need to know about this location and the items in it.
How to Enter Lenne’s Rise
Once you get to Lenne’s Rise site of grace, possibly because you might be on your way to defeat the Giant Dragon or activate the Grand Lift of Dectus, you will see a big structure in front of it.
That structure is Lenne’s Rise, an observation tower in the northeast of Dragonbarrow, a subregion of Caelid. If you know where to get Bestial Incantations in Elden Ring, this structure is located off the path to the Bestial Sanctum.
If you go around this building, you will notice a Spirit Spring close to it. If you get on Torrent and go to the Spirit Spring from the nearby site of grace, you will be propelled to the top of the cliff next to Lenne’s Rise.
However, you can use it for something else.
If you turn around, still on the Spirit Spring, you will be right in front of the building’s main tower. Your goal here is pretty simple.
There is a ledge near an open window on the top of that tower, and you will have to use the Spirit Spring to reach it. You will have access to Lenne’s Rise if you do it correctly.
This is the only way that I’ve found so far to get in the tower. It doesn’t seem like there’s a way to open the magic door, so you will have to risk jumping from the Spirit Spring to find the opening.
Once you get up there, you will find an opening that will allow you to go down and check the rest of the building and the stairs that lead you to the top of the tower.
Now, you can get into Lenne’s Rise and start exploring it to collect some important items, especially if you are playing as a caster.
What Is Inside Lenne’s Rise?
Honestly, Lenne’s Rise doesn’t have many good items for you to gather. You will find a Faded Erdleaf Flower and Glingtsone Fireflies, but that’s not why you’re here.
The most important item within Lenne’s Rise is the Memory Stone that you will find inside a chest. The chest you are looking for is located on the top of the main tower.
Memory Stones are black, lightly beguiling stones that are prized by the sorcerers who produce them. It is said that these stones are fragments of the black moon that once hung above the Eternal City.
Each of these items that you acquire will increase your total memory slots by 1. In other words, you can prepare one extra spell for each Memory Stone you find.
At the bottom of Lenne’s Rise, near the sealed entrance, you will find an Arcane Sphere of Faces — or School of Graven Mages according to a couple of Talismans.
Apparently, these objects have faces that resemble the stone masks used by members of the Raya Lucaria Academy. Arcane Sphere of Faces is used to safeguard areas related to sorcery. They are mysteriously rare and highly unconventional enemies.
Some fans theorize that they result from experimental glintstone sorcery gone wrong.
Lenne’s Rise is sealed, and since the stone statue in front of it is broken, it doesn’t seem that you can open the magic door.
Considering that there is an Arcane Sphere of Faces inside the building, we can assume that an experiment went terribly wrong inside Lenne’s Rise.
There is nothing of importance within this building besides a Memory Stone at the top of the main tower. Go all the way up there and open the chest to find it.
You can look around for environmental storytelling, but there’s nothing else to be found if you are just looking for new equipment.
