The castle is full of toxic swamps and dangerous enemies. Our guide will be there for you!
Shaded Castle Shaded Castle is a small fort-like dungeon in the Elden Ring, hidden from view by the public. It’s situated within the Atlus Plateau, just a few feet from the boundary with Mt. Gelmir. You only need to walk along the small ravine to the left of the Atlus Plateau of Grace. It’s easy to get there by driving through the campground with a Mad Pumpkin head just slightly further up the road.
The dungeon is filled with deadly ground and dangerous enemies. The castle is tarnished. That’s why there’s no predetermined way to go, and it’s up to you to take a parkour route and walk through the rubble before meeting an end-of-the-line boss. This guide will explain the exact location you must take to finish the castle.
How to Get Inside The Shaded Castle
The best way to enter is by climbing up the rocks on the castle’s outskirts. This is the closest thing to The principal Site of Grace. When you step over the wall, the wall will be a Skeletal will attempt to attack you.
You can’t utilize Torrent within The Shaded Castle.
The right-hand turn, followed by a left, will take one to Shaded castle Ramparts Grace. From there, turn back and go to the left. There is an unholy perfumer at the bottom of the path. To the left of this perfumer is a rock, which is accessible to walk over into a small pond that is a wetland.
Minor enemies will be spawned after you’ve fallen. There’s a concealed painting in this area. To get to the painting, you need to walk underneath the rock and then crouch beneath the beams of wood to see the steps. This leads to the Champion’s Song Painting. Then return towards The Site of Grace.
Take the ladder on the left to descend into the savage swamp below. There will be a number of Wraith Callers; however, their attacks aren’t too fast, and they’re spread out enough to allow you to fight them off quickly. As you continue to the bottom of the swamp, you’ll be able to see the rooftops in the distance. To your right, a rogue enemy is waiting to attack you. The enemy is protecting a ladder which leads to the next section.
As you ascend the ruins, there will be creatures resembling frogs and a few smaller loots, such as the grease or Smithing Stones to your left. On the roof, ahead, you’ll encounter another perfumer with a depraved ego that will be able to heal itself if you allow them.
The other roof in the swamp will be the somber smithing Stone (5) on the ground behind. Be aware that a wraith-like enemy will appear when you are too close. The jump to your right on the West walls of the castle will lead to dead ends, which is why you’ll need to climb the ladder right now.

You will have several options when you reach the top of the ladder. On your left, you’ll find dangerous Skeletons. You’ll see one skeleton appears to be trying to grab an object high up that it isn’t able to reach. We’ll explain how to reach that item in just some time.
Turn right instead. There will be an opening that leads to rooftops surrounding a huge Miranda flower. Be located below. Miranda will be protecting the Smithing Stone (5). If you continue walking, you’ll come across an elite adversary that is one of which is a cleanrot knight. In front of the knight is a treasure chest containing the most important piece of equipment, the Valkyrie’s Prosthesis.
Return to where you started from on the ladder. To continue on through the castle, you must jump onto the rooftops through the rampart’s entrance. When you turn to the left, you will see a ladder in the distance. This ladder will take one to the purple thing that the skeleton before was biting at. There could be as many as five perfumers that are truly depraved.
Here, the swamp can slow the speed of your feet when you walk on it, and you are unable to escape or avoid it.
To access your following Site of Grace, you can either leap down and climb up the steps to the middle and then climb a ladder on your left. You can also remain in the air and clear of any dangers by using the ruins to travel across towards The Shaded Castle’s Inner Gate of Grace.

When you exit the next door, you’ll turn left and look for a ladder leading up. There’s the cookbook Perfumer’s Cookbook (2) on the top of the roof.
When you leave the room, turn left, and a Cleaningrot Knight is waiting on the opposite end of the bridge. After they’ve been defeated, they look up at the bridge. If you’re equipped with the ranged weapon, you’ll be able to easily take out the enemy below and go back to collect whatever you’d like. If not, you can continue to the castle.
Slow down in the next room, or you’ll get Overwhelmed by speedy by fast. There’s an archer on the stairs and a disguised dog. The stairs will be up, and just outside, there will be a dog as well as a Cleanrot Knight who will quickly spot you if you are closer to the entrance.
After these adversaries have been taken care of, you’re nearly there. All you need to do is go through the doorway that the knight had blocked. There is an elevator made of wood that will lead you straight to the top of the castle and to the head of the castle.
