Elden Ring Areas By Level

Here’s our complete Elden Ring areas by level guide. We list all of the main areas in Elden Ring and what level you should be at to go there.

Elden Ring Areas By Level

Elden Ring is a massive game that features an open world that the player can traverse freely. For the first time, FromSoftware allowed the player to go to any location on the map by simply walking there without any issues. The game does not tell you where to go but it will slightly give you a hint on where you should head next. Since the game is quite large, it can be easy to roam into an area that is beyond your level. That is why this guide will show you the Elden Ring areas by level. 

If you are new to the game, here are all the main areas in Elden Ring and at what level you should go there:

  • Limgrave West: 1 to 15
  • Stormveil Castle: 30 to 40
  • Liurnia of the Lakes: 40 to 50
  • Academy of Raya Lucaria: 50 to 60
  • Caelid South: 60 to 70
  • Altus Plateau: 60 to 80
  • Mt Gelmir: 80 to 100
  • Leyndell, Royal Capital: 90 to 110
  • Mountaintop of the Giants: 100 to 120
  • Crumbling Farum Azula: 120 to 150
  • Leyndell, Ashen Capital: 120 to 150

If you want to know about other areas as well, continue reading to find out! There are tons of areas in the game, so, it can be easy to wander off to someplace where you are not meant to be. With that said, let’s jump right in and take a look at the Elden Ring areas by level.

Elden Ring Areas By Level

We mentioned some of the areas above and at what level you should go there. However, there are many other areas as well. So, without further ado, here are all the areas in Elden Ring and their suggested level as well.

AreaSuggested Level
Limgrave East10 to 20
Stormhill10 to 20
Weeping Peninsula20 to 30
Ainsel River50 to 60
Siofra River50 to 60
Nokron, Eternal City70 to 80
Siofra Aqueduct70 to 80
Deeproot Depths80 to 90
Lake of Rot80 to 100
Dragonbarrow90 to 110
Forbidden Lands100 to 120
Consecrated Grounds100 to 120
Mohgwyn Palace110 to 140
Miquella’s Haligtree120 to 150
Endings120 to 150

Keep in mind that you can enter these areas earlier and do well against the enemies. However, if you do not want to have a tough time, the suggested levels will allow you to perform better. Another thing to note is that even if you meet the recommended levels, you will still have a good challenge and will not be able to blast your way through. 

I had difficulties in some of these areas despite being higher level than the suggested number. The hardest time of my playthrough was against Malenia. The boss fight is quite difficult and you will need a lot of tries before beating her for the first time. On the other hand, I entered Stormveil Castle around level 20 to 25 and did just fine against all the enemies and bosses there. So, it truly comes down to how well you play and what enemies you find easy or hard.

By the end of the game, you should be around level 120 to 150. While you might be higher or lower, that is completely fine. As long as you had fun and played the game your way, that’s what really matters. The suggested levels are just there to help guide you in areas that you need to go. If you want to challenge yourself, you can enter high level areas earlier and try to see how well you fare against the enemies and bosses.
