Elden Ring May Erudition Light the Way Puzzle Walkthrough
Step 1: Collect Academy Glintstone Key
As the sorcerer Thops has been shut out of the Academy of Raya Lucaria, he has enlisted your help in retrieving the Glintstone Key. Make your way back to the Grace Site of Debate.
Make your climb up some debris to a spot where you will encounter grunts and a single mage. After that, you need to follow the left-hand staircase to a room with a grunt and two mages. Defeat all of the enemies and head towards the balcony.
By jumping from the balcony and over various roofs you will get to a chandelier. The key to Glintstone Academy will be hanging from the ceiling chandelier.
Step 2: Give Thops the Glintstone Academy Key
In Liurnia, you may find Thops seated on a bench outside the Church of Irith, close to the city’s entrance. You need to talk to him and hand him the Glintstone Academy Key. Thops will then give you the “Erudition Gesture.”
Step 3: Obtain Karolos Glintstone Crown
The Glintstone crown is found in the Legacy Dungeon that leads to Rennala, Raya Lucaria Academy. Enter the basement and go to the Debate Parlor Site of Grace, which is patrolled by the Red Wolf of Radagon, a ferocious wolf boss.
The courtyard may be accessed from the Debate Parlor Site of Grace via double doors. Axe-wielding foes await you, so proceed with caution. Locate the little crab with the blue Glintstone lodged in its shell, lurking in the grass. If you manage to kill this crab, you’ll be awarded the Karolos Glintstone Crown.
