This post shares information about an early “optional” dungeon in Elden Ring. The dungeon doesn’t seem optional when considering this, like Limgrave Tunnels, is a great place for smithing stones to upgrade weapons and shields.
Pro Leveling Tip
One of the best leveling tips I can give as mid 30s is discover all the dungeons in an area and run the mobs multiple times. Before progressing to the boss, level up so you risk as few runes as possible when failing to the boss multiple times. I discovered all the dungeons in the Weeping Peninsula and fast travel between the dungeons, clearing the mobs multiple times to make runes and level.
Stones For Upgrades
Smithing stones improve your weapons. You can use the smithing stones at the anvil located at the church of Elleh which you will visit quickly when starting in Limgrave at the first step. Morne Tunnel is located in the Weeping Peninsula which is one of the first areas you will discover to the south of Limgrave and is apparently designed for levels 20-30.
The boss of the tunnel dungeon is Scaly Misbegotten and playing as Astrologer, the boss never hit me once. Glinting Pebble is go to spell for Astrologer. Scaly Misbegotten drops the Rusted Anchor, a weapon Astrologer can’t really use because all my leveling points are going to Intelligence (more damage on spells) and Mind (more mana).

Elden Ring Pro Leveling Tip
Clear the dungeon mobs multiple times. Earn runes. Level. Run back to the site of grace at the dungeon entrance, rest, and defeat the dungeon mobs again. This process will help you run the dungeon mobs most efficiently when you’re ready to clear the dungeon boss. And, make sure you don’t have a lot of runes. The best time to try and clear an Elden Ring dungeon is after you’ve leveled at the dungeon site of grace.
Earthbore Cave mob walkthrough
first, when you enter the dungeon, there’s a treasure chest. If you run at the treasure chest you fall through the floor into a room with five rat mobs. They all add you die. But, it’s fairly easy to recover your runes. The mobs in the cavern are rats and I have no problem taking them down as mid 20s Astrologer utilizing Glinting Pebble.
Earthbore Cave Boss – Runebear
You’ll pass a point of no return when you fight the rune bear the first time. The boss is asleep. You can safely jump off to a ledge then jump down again and you’re in the room with the Earthbore Cave boss, Runebear. However, if you lose your runes, the only way you can get them back is by defeating the boss. The best time to clear a dungeon and try to defeat the dungeon boss is just after you’ve leveled up. You shouldn’t have many runes left to lose because if you die, the runes become less and less until they’re are not any runes left to recover. I finally got the Runebear at level 59
