Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree: How to reach the second Finger Ruins

You'd be forgiven if you're stumped how to get there as it's not that obvious.

If you’re currently doing the Manus Metyr quest in Shadow of the Erdtree, here’s a handy guide on how to reach the second Finger Ruins aka the Finger Ruins of Dheo.

At this point, you probably have most of the Map Fragments as you likely already have the Southern Shore fragment if you already reached the first Finger Ruin. If not, you can refer to our guide to get them all. With these, getting to the second Finger Ruins should be much easier.

To start, go to the Site of the Grace near the Church of Manus Metyr, and then proceed inside the path shown below that leads into the Shadow Keep’s Church District:

Initially, the Church District would be flooded, so you’ll need to navigate through the rooftops and the flying buttresses as your goal is to reach the Church on the left side of this image:

There is some platforming, but getting to the church should be straightforward. Once there, you’ll come across a hall with two paths leading outside. Go to the second one which leads to the Specimen Storehouse as shown here:

Once in the Specimen Storehouse Back Section, climb this ladder and then go outside from the following room:

Follow the path and you’ll soon see a Site of Grace with an elevator leading to some pillars. Here, the goals is to get to the other side.

Once there, you’ll see a path outside the storehouse and another elevator. Take this elevator down to reach the Shadow Keep’s back gate.

From this area, you can proceed straight to fight a tough boss. Though to get to the second ruins, go to the room on the right that’s seemingly a dead end.

Here, you’ll see a statue of Marika. Do the “O Mother” gesture in front of it, and the statue should slide to the right, revealing a path.

Proceed there and you’ll emerge in the Hinterland. From here, you should just go straight through to reach the Finger Ruins of Dheo.

Take note that there are some tough enemies here, so make sure you have enough upgrades. After getting to the second Finger Ruins, completing the Manus Metyr questline should be simple.

Shadow of the Erdtree is available now on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
