Where to Get Dragon Hearts in Elden Ring

Where to Get Dragon Hearts in Elden Ring

For those who are brave enough to embark on the Dragon Build, hunting dragons and obtaining their coveted Dragon Hearts is essential.

These Dragon Hearts serve as Consumable Items that can be traded for Dragon Communion Incantations.

In order to make the trade, you must visit one of these two locations: Church of Dragon Communion or Cathedral of Dragon Communion.

How To Get a Dragon Heart

To obtain a Dragon Heart you must take on the task of finding and defeating a dragon.

However, this is far from easy since dragons pose formidable challenges as boss fights in the game.

As a result, It is crucial to follow the recommended level range for the area where these dragons reside, maximizing your chances of success.
