The Heretical Rise is one of the many towers found in Interspace, you need to solve the puzzle to break the entrance seal. Solving tower puzzles, such as finding all the turtles, is usually relatively easy, but the puzzle in the Heretical Rise is probably the most difficult in Elden Ring. So in this guide, we show you where to find the Heretical Rise and how to solve the puzzle to enter the tower.
Heretical Rise – Where to Find
The Heretical Rise location can be found in the northeastern part of the Giant’s Peaks region.
Head south once you reach the frozen lake, hugging the rocks on the west side until you reach the jumping point of the Spiritual Spring. Use your horse to jump to the top of the cliff, where you will reach the Overlord’s Rival Ossuary. Now go north until you find the Heretic Tower, locked by a magical barrier, and a statue of a demon next to the stairs.
Heretical Rise – How to solve the puzzle (riddle) and get into the tower
If you interact with the statue of a demon holding a book near the stairs, a hint will appear: “The falling snow allows you to see the invisible”. This message isn’t much help in figuring out what you need to do to break the seal. To solve this riddle, you must cross the invisible bridge over the gorge behind the tower.
To cross this bridge, go to the place of grace Ice Lake and go west until you see some skeletons on top of the cliff. Climb to the top of the cliff and you will find the bridge to the south. If you step off the edge of the bridge, you will think you are walking on air, but if you look closely, you will notice a faint mist (“falling snow” mentioned in the riddle) around the invisible bridge.
Continue straight ahead until you’re about two-thirds of the way across the gap – that’s when things get tricky. Turn left, following the white snow, and you can enter the Heretical Rise by an invisible curved staircase.
Finally, you will find yourself inside the tower. Take the elevator to the top to open the chest with the First Starry Rain charms.
