If you’re planning on bolstering your character’s defenses as much as possible in Elden Ring, then the Pearldrake talisman is an excellent choice. As the counterpart to the Dragoncrest Shield talisman, the Pearldrake talisman boosts your non-physical damage negation. This means reducing the damage you take from magic, fire, lightning, and holy spells and attacks.
If you don’t have one yet, then simply follow the guide below.
How to Get Pearldrake Talisman in Elden Ring
The talisman can be obtained from Crumbling Farum Azula, which is an endgame area in the game. However, there’s a trick you can use to get there pretty early on. To do so, you’ll want to head to The Four Belfries which is found in Liurnia of the Lakes.
From there, head to the highest part to loot the Imbued Sword key inside a chest. After that head down and go to the second belfry from the bottom. Go close to the Imp statue and interact with it. When prompt to use the key, select Yes.
This will activate the portal nearby. Simply go inside the portal to get teleported to Crumbling Farum Azula. Once you’re in the area, head left and jump down the ledge until you land on a platform below. Immediately turn right and look for a small floating platform below.
Before you go all the way down, keep in mind that there will be a couple of beastmen in the area. You can kill them from above using a bow or a spell. However, if you’re a melee build, your only option is to kill them as soon as you land below.
After clearing the area, head to the left section of the platform until you find another platform below the ledge. The talisman is just on top of the corpse at the edge of the floating platform.

Genshin Impact: Sandglass Dendroculus Puzzle Guide
Get rewarded for clearing this new exploration-based mechanic.
Primal Sandglasses are a new mechanic for exploration that you’ll find in the Ruins of King Deshret. Flipping one will start a timed challenge where you’ll need to flip other Primal Sandglasses. Doing so within the time will grant you a reward.
In this guide we’ll teach you how to beat one of these challenges.
The Sandglass Location
To find the Primal Sandglass that rewards you with a Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest you’ll want to go west of The Mausoleum of King Deshret.
Get to the red-circled area – there’s a Four-Leaf Sigil around to make the travel faster. You’ll end in an area with one of the squared-floor panels that you can activate by interacting with the book front of it. This will create an updraft that will get you to a Dendroculus waiting on top, plus a Forged Primal Light.
From that position you can look at the second area, the one we encircled in a blue circle in the first image. Take the Forged Primal Light to the panel there to create a Primal Sandglass.
The Sandglass Time Trial Challenge
Once you flip the Primal Sandglass you’ll have29 seconds to flip the other two. It may look simple, but there’s invisible walls that’ll make tricky getting to the others.
First you’ll want to do a straight-line run towards where the red arrow points: the part where you can see stone steps rather than sand.
From here turn to the right and keep going forward until you crash against the invisible wall. Then employ some wall-hugging: move while sticking close to the wall so that at the moment it stops being there, your character will get past it to the other side.
When you ‘see’ the door get past it and turn back in direction to the hourglass. This time the wall will be to the right-side of your character. Make your way to the Sandglass normally, and we’re on to the last one.
From that sandglass you’ll run straight to the second batch of stone-floor.
At that point, turn 90° degrees to the right until you see another invisible wall flare up blue. You’ll turn 90° degrees to your right again. Make sure to wall-hug a little so that you can see where the wall ends.
After you’ve cleared the wall do a full turn around, leaving it to left-side of your body and run in a straight line like you were trying to get the torch close to the last Sandglass. You’ll be clear off the wall in a matter of seconds and you can make a beeline for the last Sandglass. Flip it.
Now just walk forward in the direction of the Four-Leaf Sigil, but don’t use it. If you look down you’ll be able to see the Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest to its right.
