To fight with the Regal Ancestor Spirit in Elden Ring, Tarnished must light all six flame pillars within Nokron’s Ancestral Woods to summon the boss.
Similar to the Ancestor Spirit of Siofra River in Elden Ring, the Regal Ancestor Spirit can only be encountered once Tarnished have lit all the flame pillars of Nokron, Eternal City. Likewise, the Regal Ancestor Spirit is an optional boss, but many adventurers might wish to challenge the fabled beast to earn its unique Remembrance.
The location of the Regal Ancestor Spirit, Nokron, is the upper part of Siofra River’s map in Elden Ring. However, this area is not accessible until Tarnished have defeated Radahn, the Starscourge Demigod General of Caelid. Once this monumental feat has been accomplished, a cutscene of a star falling to Limgrave will play, indicating that the path to Nokron is open. Travelers can go south of Mistwood in East Limgrave to find a massive crater leading the underground city. Once they arrive, they’ll need to make their way to the Ancestral Woods in the north to face the Regal Ancestor Spirit. Yet, they must cross the giant overpass guarded by a Mimic Tear to progress. This boss can be easily defeated by removing all equipment before the fight and reequipping once the battle begins. Afterward, players can commence their boss-summoning, brazier-lighting endeavor.
There are six flame pillars in Nokron that must be ignited in order for the Regal Ancestor Spirit boss battle to occur. The first obelisk can be found alongside the main path of Ancestral Woods connected to the overpass. Be wary of the two Ancestral Followers patrolling the road. Next, turn right and head into the forest. Finally, go around the large stone pillar to find the second brazier sitting near the cliff ledge.
Every Nokron Flame Pillar’s Location In Elden Ring
Return to the road and continue westward to encounter two more Ancestral Followers and an Ancestral Follower Shaman singing atop a hill beside the third flame pillar. It is possible to ignore the Shaman by ascending the slope behind the brazier and lighting the fire unnoticed. Continue down the road to find Nokron’s fourth flame pillar atop a small rostrum. The platform will be crowded with woodland creatures and Followers enchanted by a Shaman’s song in Elden Ring. While it is feasible to sneak around the stage to the pillar, the brazier faces towards the crowd, meaning the enemies will become hostile when the player lights the fire.
The next flame pillar sits in the far northwest of the woods, past the broken overpass and near the submerged ruins. Two frenzied rats will be guarding the brazier. The sixth and final brazier is hidden behind a giant rock to the south of the clearing. Once all the obelisks have been lit, Tarnished can interact with the deer carcass in the eastern corner of the Ancestral Woods to unlock the Regal Ancestor Spirit boss fight in Elden Ring.
Elden Ring is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
