Elden Ring: How to Get Scarlet Rotten Staff

Legacy dungeons in Elden Ring include some awesome weapons you can get your hands on, but some, like the Scarlet Rotten Staff, can be quite difficult to get.




The Rotten Crystal Staff is a very powerful weapon you get in the Elden Ring’s endgame. It requires 8 Strength and 48 Intelligence to use, scales with both of these stats, buffs Crystalian Sorceries and has a chance to inflict Rot status on the enemies. But it’s also pretty difficult to get…

How to Get Scarlet Rotten Staff in the Elden Ring

The Scarlet Rotten Staff can be found in a Legacy Dungeon called Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree in the northern portion of the map. You can only get there after defeating Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree in Miquella’s Haligtree. You should be at least level 110 before entering this dungeon, so don’t bother with the staff until the endgame.

Crystallian Mages

Scarlet Rotten Staff drops from enemies called the Crystallian Mages. There are two places where those enemies spawn – at the beginning of Elphael’s first section and next to the Elphael Inner Wall Site of Grace. The enemies themself are very tough and they don’t always drop the staff, so prepare for a long farming section.

The Crystal Staff

Interestingly, there exists another version of this weapon, simply called the Crystal Staff. The only difference between the two is that the Crystal Staff cannot inflict the Rot status effect and is much easier to get.

It can be found in the academy crystal cave, in a room guarded by a sorcerer behind a fog wall, located right before the boss gate. You’ll have to get past an illusionary rock on the left site of the tunnel to get to it.

Lighting the Pyro Totems in the correct order will help you complete this puzzle, and unlock a fast travel waypoint.





The Garden of Endless Pillars is located within the northwestern part of the Sumeru Desert. Once you’ve reached there, you’ll notice a giant slab cemented in the dunes, along with various Pyro totems surrounding it nearby.

We’ll explain how to successfully complete the Totem Puzzle in the “Garden of Endless Pillars” Guide – read on for our walkthrough.

Totem Puzzle for Garden of Endless Pillars Guide in Genshin Impact

The very first thing you’ll need to do is go to the Garden of Endless Pillars location on the map, which we’ve indicated in the screenshots below.

Once you’ve reached The Garden of Endless Pillars, you’ll need to switch over to Amber, as you’ll have to utilize Pyro attacks on the corresponding totems.

The first totem is extremely easy, as there are no walls blocking you – simply take a right upon entering the area, and shoot the totem.

To reach the second totem (pictured above) you will have to walk forward a fair bit until you spot the totem located in the right-hand corner. As you are blocked by the wall, you will need to traverse onto the concrete pillars to get a vantage point from which you can target the second totem.

Head right for the next totem, located in front of crumbled concrete walls. To find the last two totems, proceed forward and take a slight left. The very last one is located to the right, opposite of the prior totem.

Hitting all the totems will cause the slab to activate, and after this sequence, you will unlock a fast travel point for this region, which you can then use moving forward throughout the new update.
