Elden Ring players face numerous challenges and puzzles throughout their journey, with the Carian Study Hall being one of the most enigmatic. This guide will walk you through its location, acquire the Carian Inverted Statue, and solve the puzzle to reach the Divine Tower of Liurnia.
Finding the Carian Study Hall
The Carian Study Hall is located east of the Academy of Raya Lucaria. Players will need to traverse mountainous terrain to arrive at the location. Upon entering the study hall, a Site of Grace is available to facilitate faster return visits. The central altar within the hall holds a vacant space, which is critical to inverting the hall and solving the puzzle.
Acquiring the Carian Inverted Statue
The Carian Inverted Statue is a vital item required to invert the Study Hall and progress in the game. This item can be obtained through Ranni’s questline in Elden Ring. As players explore Nokron, they will eventually find the Fingerslayer Blade. After presenting the blade to Ranni, she will provide the Carian Inverted Statue as part of the ongoing questline arrangements.
Solving the Carian Study Hall Puzzle
With the Carian Inverted Statue in hand, players must place it in the empty space on the altar, inverting the building and solving the puzzle. However, upon returning to the inverted study hall, a formidable boss, Preceptor Miriam, awaits. This teleporting foe summons spirit soldiers to assist her in battle, making the encounter challenging.
To overcome Miriam, players should first deal with the Glinstone Staff on the right side and access the lift hidden behind the bookcase to advance to the next level. After defeating Miriam in battle once more, players can return to the main hall and place the Carian Inverted Statue on the pedestal with the missing piece, unlocking the path to the Divine Tower of Liurnia.
