In Elden Ring, the Lantern is a Key Item worn on the belt, dimmer than a hand torch, but freeing the user’s hand. This feature is extremely useful, as many players require a two-handed weapon or a shield.
Many players have no doubt met Trader Kale at Elle’s Temple in the Graveyard and purchased a torch from him. However, there are those who do not know where and how you can get the best alternative to the Torch – Lantern. Luckily, the game offers two places to acquire the Lantern in case you missed the first one at the beginning of your journey. Both lanterns are sold by NPC vendors and cost 1,800 runes. Therefore, the player will need to prepare these funds before visiting any of the merchants.
Where to find or buy a flashlight
The first place to purchase a Lantern in Elden Ring is in the Weeping Peninsula, the southern sub-region of the Graveyard. More specifically, you can find the lantern in the Isolated Merchant’s Shack off the southwest coast of the peninsula. To get to this location, you must travel southeast from the First Step Place of Grace and cross the Sacrificial Bridge. The enemies patrolling the area aren’t very strong, but the ballista guarding the bridge can be a tough target.
Going further south, you will come across a fork in the road. From here, take the road on the right and head north to the Village of the Sick. Continue west until you reach the Temple of Pilgrimage, from which players can descend southwest down a large slope and into the valley below. An isolated merchant’s shack can be found southwest of the Wandering Mausoleum.
Let’s assume you haven’t explored the Weeping Peninsula yet, or you missed the Isolated Trader. In this case, you can purchase another lantern from the nomadic merchant near the place of grace on the lakeshore in Lake Liurnia. Lyurnia is located just above the Graveyard, and can be reached by defeating Godric or following the mountain path north of Thunder Veil Castle. Once you reach the cliffs, you can head northwest to the shore of Lake Liurnia, located south of the Region Map Fragment. As mentioned above, the nomad merchant will sell the lantern for the same price of 1,800 runes.
