This post explains Latenna’s NPC quest line in Elden Ring rewarding players a smithing stone allowing gamers to upgrade their unique weapon the final tier to +10. There are eight known somber ancient dragon smithing stones in the game and Latenna’s Quest offers the path of least resistance for players to obtain this precious item.

Finding Latenna

Players must defeat the boss of Lakeside Crystal Cave in Lakes of Liurnia. Upon defeating the Bloodhound Knight, players can access a “rear entrance” to the cave where Latenna will be sitting with her wolf, Lobo. It’s important players realize they must first have collected the Haligtree Secret Medallion (Right) from Albus in Albinaurics Village in Lakes of Liurnia. Without this item, Latenna will not begin her quest line and, apparently, if players have collected both halves of the medallion, Latenna’s quest will not activate at all and players are only able to obtain Latenna’s Spirit Ash.

Lakeside Crystal Cave Dungeon

Here’s six minutes of video of the astrologer mage shredding this dungeon, slaying the boss, and beginning the quest. The mage sacrifices armor for mobility and hit points for ranged spell damage. The mage sacrifices strength and dexterity for a large mana pool. And a mage has no faith or arcane.

Beginning Latenna’s Quest

Players must exhaust dialogue with Latenna outside the rear entrance of Lakeside Cave. Latenna will become a spirit ash in players’ inventory and gamers will have instructions to take Latenna to the Consecrated Snowfields, a “secret area” only accessible when players have both halves of the Haligtree Secret Medallion.

Players already possess the right half of the medallion triggering the quest. Players must next obtain the left half of the medallion from Castle Sol in the Mountaintop of Giants after defeating the dungeon boss, Commander Niall.

After defeating the boss, players will run a short distance utilizing a lift and looting a body for the left half of the secret medallion to access Consecrated Snowfields where Latenna must be summoned at the Apostate Derelict Site of Grace to complete the quest.
