How to Get the Erudition Gesture in Elden Ring

How to Get the Erudition Gesture in Elden Ring

Gestures are a way to express yourself to other Elden Ring players.

They are usually used for a bit of fun but in the case of the Erudition emote this particular one solves two tower puzzles in Liurnia of the Lakes.

Erudition Gesture Location

The Erudition Gesture can be obtained from Thops after completing his quest.

You can find Thops at the Church of Irith found near the Lakeside Facing Cliffs Site of Grace.

After talking with him, he’ll inform you that he needs an Academy Glintstone Key to enter Raya Lucaria Academy.

The first key is easy to find, and it’s located on the island just west of Raya Lucaria Academy.

However, even when you have one key, Thops will not take it from you. He’ll tell you that the key is yours and he can not take it from you.

Fortunately, there are two Academy Glintstone Keys in Elden Ring.

As a result, you’ll need to locate the second Glintstone Key hidden in the Academy itself for him to accept it.

The Erudition Gesture follows the same steps as finding the second Imbued Sword Key at Raya Lucaria Academy, but in step 12, you take a left instead of a right.

Starting from step 11, continue following these steps for the location of the Erudition Academy Glintstone Key:

  1. On the left side, you’ll find a platform from which you can drop.
  2. After you jump down, progress forward until you find a second platform to drop down to.
  3. From there, you can take either the right or left to access the rooftop of the building through the windows on the side.
  4. The windows will lead you directly to a wooden platform that looks down on two chandeliers.
  5. The chandelier with purple loot is the one that has the second Academy Glintstone Key.

Once you obtain the second Academy Glintstone Key, head back to Thops at the Church of Irith.

After you give him the Academy Glintstone Key, he’ll reward you with the Erudition Gesture.

As mentioned before, you can use the Erudition Gesture as a part of two tower puzzles. However, you’ll need an additional item to solve the puzzles and get the rewards.

This item is called the Karolos Glintstone Crown.

How to Get Karolos Glintstone Crown

The Karolos Glintstone Crown is a part of the Raya Lucarian Sorcerer set and can be found in the Raya Lucaria Academy.

To get it, you will simply need to locate a White Crystal Crab and kill it.

Follow the steps below to get Karolos Glintstone Crown.

  1. Starting from the Debate Parlor Site of Grace, exit the boss room and keep moving forward to the left side.
  2. After the fountain, you’ll find a path to the left with some bushes.
  3. If you follow it all the way to the end, you’ll come across a White Crystal Crab that is hiding among some grass to the left.
  4. Kill the crab and you’ll receive Karolos Glintstone Crown.

Both the Erudition Gesture and Karolos Glintstone Crown are necessary to unlock and solve The Converted Tower and The Converted Fringe Tower puzzles in Liurnia of the Lakes.
