Once out of the Elden Ring tutorial , the first dark area that awaits you is the semi-human cave to the west, as part of the Boc the Seamster quest . By going to the nearest church, you can buy a Torch from Merchant Kalé for 200 Runes, but this is only a temporary and uncomfortable solution. In addition to being overweight, it will also occupy a hand that would be better off holding a shield or a weapon. Fortunately, by knowing where to go, it is possible to quickly obtain the lantern, which will greatly simplify your life.
Where to find the lantern?
The only way to get a lantern in Elden Ring is to buy it from a merchant . The devs obviously thought about players, since there's one in the starting region, and one on the way north in the next region, and it's very hard to miss. It is sold for 1800 Runes by the two merchants, so there is no reason to go and see one rather than the other, apart from proximity, of course. This may seem like a lot at the start of the game, but it's quickly achieved by killing a few small enemies in a camp near a grace point for example. You can also sell your stock of physical runes to the merchant, in order to automatically convert them into usable runes. There is no urgency either, since the dark dungeons are not legion either. Just consider it a necessary investment.
The merchant southwest of the Weeping Peninsula of Necrolimbo is the closest and most accessible, it is the one we advise you to go to: Go to the Point of grace of the hut of the ascetic merchant . It also has other cool merchandise like the fantastic Two-Handed Sword , and cheap Blade Keys .
The second merchant is north of Necrolimbo, so south of Liurnia. You can wait for the area without facing Margit or Godrick , by taking the small cliffside path to the east.
Use the lantern
The lantern is treated as an unlimited use consumable , you can activate it from inventory, even place it in the quick item bar, but this will quickly become a pain, especially when looking to use your healing potions in the heat of the action. The best thing to do is put it in the satchel , by opening the character menu. Notice the 4 boxes at the top right of the screen. By placing the lantern in one of the hotkeys using Y or Triangle and the D-pad , you can turn it on and off at will without ever having to worry about it again.
