There are a lot of Talismans in Elden Ring. These accessories, once equipped, provide bonuses that can help you throughout the campaign, including increased damage, damage negation, or increased carrying capacity.

Our Elden Ring guide will help you find every Talisman and Talisman Pouch in the game. We’ve broken them down by region below.


Equipping Talismans in Elden Ring
