How to Solve the Converted and Fringe Tower Puzzle in Elden Ring

How to Solve the Converted and Fringe Tower Puzzle in Elden Ring

In Liurnia of the Lakes, there are two towers with puzzles based on the two items, The Erudition Gesture and Karolos Glintstone Crown.

The Converted Tower is located in Liurnia’s southwest part, while the Converted Fringe Tower is in the region’s north-eastern side.

Each tower provides a hint to assist you in solving the puzzle. However, as with any FromSoftware game, it’s obscure what must be done.

Here’s how to get the Erudition Gesture and Karolos Glinstone Crown if you’ve yet to get them. They are required to complete the puzzle.

Erudition Guide Thee!

Erudition Guide Thee is the clue given for the Converted Tower.

With the Erudition Gesture acquired, you will be able to solve the Converted Tower puzzle and get your award by following these steps:

  1. After you reach the tower, you’ll find a statue inside.
  2. Next, you need to perform the Erudition Gesture in front of the statue.
  3. Once done successfully, a magical blue ladder will appear behind the statue which you can climb.
  4. At the top of the tower, you’ll find a chest containing the Memory Stone.

Alternatively, there is another way to access the chest and skip the puzzle.

If you look closely, you’ll see a damaged stone wall on the tower’s sides that you can climb by foot or Torrent. Following the edges of the wall will eventually lead you to the top of the tower.

It may take a few tries to get all of the jumps right, but it’s a quick solution if you haven’t unlocked the gesture.

May Erudition Light the Way!

May Erudition Light the Way is the clue given for the Converted Fringe Tower.

This tower will require both the Karolos Glinstone Crown and the Erudition Gesture.

Firstly, you’ll need to locate the Converted Fringe Tower and then, following the same steps as the Converted Tower, perform the gesture in front of the statue.

Don’t forget to equip the Karolos Glinstone Crown!

This time, however, instead of a magical ladder, there is a magical barrier on the left blocking the way.

After performing the Erudition gesture with the Glinstone Crown equipped, a prompt will show: “The seal on the rise opened”.

This means that the magical barrier has disappeared and you will have access to the top of the tower.

While making your way to the top, you’ll stumble across a relatively easy enemy to defeat.

Once you are at the very top of the tower, you’ll find a chest that contains two powerful spells which are the Gavel of Haima and Cannon of Haima.

You can use any Glintstone Crown that glows when you perform the Erudition gesture on this tower.

These are the Glinstone Crowns:

  • Karolos Glintstone Crown
  • Lazuli Glintstone Crown
  • Olivinus Glintstone Crown
  • Twinsage Glintstone Crown
  • Witch’s Glintstone Crown
