In this Elden Ring Golden Seed guide, we’ll show you where to find every Golden Seed in the West Limgrave and beyond.
Golden Seeds are consumable items you’ll spend at sites of grace to upgrade your Sacred Flasks. Being able to pick up a few of them (relatively) early will give you a huge advantage.

Elden Ring Limgrave Golden Seed locations
There are five (or six) Golden Seeds available to you in the West Limgrave region. The first, which we won’t include on the map, is available as a keepsake during character creation. The others are located in or near Fringefolk Hero’s Cave (1), Stormgate (2), Fort Haight (3), and the Secluded Cell (4) and Liftside Chamber (5) inside Stormveil Castle.
Fringefolk Hero’s Cave Golden Seed location
This first Golden Seed you might come across actually takes a lot of work to pick up — in fact, it’s way too hard to tackle for a really long time. You’ll have to enter the Fringefolk Hero’s Cave by using two Stonesword Keys (which you can choose as a keepsake or you’ll, eventually, find in the world), navigate the poison and traps, and then beat the dungeon’s boss, the Ulcerated Tree Spirit. You’ll get a Golden Seed as a reward for defeating it.
Stormgate Golden Seed location
As you head northwest from the Gatefront Ruins toward Stormveil Castle, you’ll pass through Stormgate. Clear out the demi-humans and the troll, and you’ll be able to continue up the hill. When the road curves to the right, look to the right for a glowing tree. This Golden Seed will be at its base.
Fort Haight Golden Seed location
In East Limgrave, you’ll find Fort Haight in the east-southeast along the shore. Outside the walls and to the south, you’ll find this Golden Seed next to a glowing tree.
Secluded Cell in Stormveil Castle Golden Seed location
Deep inside Stormveil Castle, just before you reach the area’s boss, Godrick the Grafted, there’s a site of grace named Secluded Cell. To the south, look for another shining tree to find this Golden Seed.
Liftside Chamber in Stormveil Castle Golden Seed location
Deep below Stormveil Castle, there’s an hard-to-reach underground area — you’ll have to unlock that door by the Liftside Chamber site of grace to get there. Defeat the Lesser Ulcerated Tree Spirit you find there to receive this Golden Seed.
Elden Ring Weeping Peninsula Golden Seed locations
There’s only one Golden Seed in the Weeping Peninsula. You’ll find it to the northeast of Castle Morne.
Weeping Peninsula Golden Seed location
About halfway between the Castle Morne Lift and Rampart sites of grace, there’s a low stone wall running (roughly) east-to-west. South of the plateau that wall is on, look for some ruins. Just south of the ruins, you’ll find another glowing tree and a Golden Seed at its base (it’s just a little southwest of the Weeping Plateau map fragment stele).
Elden Ring Liurnia Golden Seed locations
There are five Golden Seeds in Liurnia of the Lakes located in (or near) Academy Gate Town (1), Main Academy Gate (2), Academy of Raya Lucaria (3), Caria Manor (4), and Ravine-Veiled Village (5).
Academy Gate Town Golden Seed location
In the flooded Academy Gate Town, you’ll find a glowing tree and this Golden Seed a little northwest of the Academy Gate Town site of grace (and due west of the Academy Gate Town icon on your map).
Main Academy Gate Golden Seed location
From the Main Academy Gate site of grace, follow the bridge northeast and you’ll find this Golden Seed under a glowing tree at the end.
Academy of Raya Lucaria Golden Seed location
Deep inside the Academy of Raya Lucaria, start at the Debate Parlor site of grace (which unlocks after you defeat the Red Wolf of Radagon). Head north into the open courtyard and keep to the left (west) until you can cross under the bridge. You’ll find this glowing tree and Golden Seed on the edge of the cliff.
Caria Manor Golden Seed location
Inside Caria Manor in the northwest of Liurnia, continue through to the Manor Upper Level site of grace. This Golden Seed is just outside to the west-northwest.
Ravine-Veiled Village Golden Seed location
Follow the water through the ravine heading northeast out of the lake. You’ll pass some poison pods near a glowing tree where you’ll find this Golden Seed.
Elden Ring Caelid and Dragonbarrow Golden Seed locations
There are four Golden Seeds in Caelid and Dragonbarrow located in or near Southern Aconia Swamp Bank (1), Sellia Backstreets (2), War-Dead Catacombs (3), and Bestial Sanctum (4).
Southern Aconia Swamp Bank Golden Seed location
Follow the road from the Aconia Swamp Bank site of grace heading south-southeast toward the Impassable Greatbridge. You’ll pass a glowing tree and this golden seed.
Sellia Backstreets Golden Seed location
From the Sellia Backstreets site of grace, head south — either through or over the magical barrier — and you’ll find this glowing tree and golden seed inside the walls of the city.
War-Dead Catacombs Golden Seed location
Once you defeat Starscourge Radahn, ride north across the Wailing Dunes as far as you can. Right at the tip of the Dunes, near the shore, you’ll find a door into the War-Dead Catacombs. Defeat this dungeon’s boss, the Putrid Tree Spirit, in the War-Torn Catacombs to collect this Golden Seed.
Bestial Sanctum Golden Seed location
About halfway between the Farum Greatbridge and Beastial Sanctum sites of grace, you’ll pass this glowing tree and Golden Seed along the road.
Elden Ring Siofra and Nokron, Eternal City Golden Seed locations
There is one Golden Seed in Siofra River and Nokron, Eternal City located in or near Below the Well (1).
Below the Well Golden Seed location
A bit south of the Below the Well site of grace, look for a natural bridge leading northwest toward the Eternal City. You’ll find this glowing tree and Golden Seed against the base of Nokron’s walls.
Elden Ring Ansel River and Nokstella Golden Seed locations
There is one Golden Seed in Ansel River and Nokstella, Eternal City located in or near Nokstella, Eternal City (1).
Nokstella, Eternal City Golden Seed location
There’s no easy way to get to this Golden Seed — and no site of grace nearby. While you explore Nokstella, Eternal City, you’ll eventually come to the chapel where you acquired the Moon of Nokstella. When you exit to the south, you’ll find an elevator to ride down. This glowing tree and Golden Seed is outside at the bottom of that lift.
Elden Ring Lake of Rot Golden Seed locations
There is one Golden Seed in the Lake of Rot located in or near the Grand Cloister (1).
Grand Cloister Golden Seed location
From the Grand Cloister site of grace, head down to the lowest level. When you reach the ground, follow the river of rot upstream to the east and north. Defeat the Ulcerated Tree Spirit there for this Golden Seed.
We will continue to update this guide as we find more Golden Seeds.
