Out of the gazillion talismans in Elden Ring, The Erdtree’s Favor talismans are a group of talismans which fall under some of the best in Elden Ring, featuring buffs to three different stats. Like many other talismans in the game, Erdtree’s Favor has three variants, with the +2 being the most powerful of the bunch.
Elden Ring was released on 25th February 2022 and it seems to have taken the world by a storm as almost everyone is playing the game right now. With extremely positive reviews and many calling the game one of the best in our generation, more players are hopping in every day to see what the hype is all about.
Why is Erdtree’s Favor +2 Talisman considered so powerful?
The Erdtree’s Favor +2 greatly increases maximum HP, stamina, and gear charge. Subordinate variants also increase these statistics, but not so many. The +2 variant increases these statistics by 4 percent, 9.6 percent, and 8 percent, respectively.
This is a significant amount and can mean the difference between living and dying in battle, and exceeding the heavy gear load threshold.
Simply put, it improves your health, weight and stamina and falls into one of the most powerful categories.
How to find this rare and powerful talisman?
You cannot acquire Erdtree’s Favor +2 at the beginning of the game. Also, you won’t get it until much later in the game. Leyndell and Ashen Capital are the late territories where amulets can mainly be discovered. Some of Leyndell are accessible immediately after your visit, but there are some prerequisites to reach Ashen Capital.
To gain access to the Ashen Capital, you’ll first need to:-
- Complete the Crumbling Farum Azula area
- Defeat Maliketh, the Black Blade
To reach the crumbling Farum Azura of the Elden Ring, you need to reach the top of the Mountaintops of the Giants. Defeat the Fire Giants to unlock the Giants Forge. There is a place of mercy on the edge of the forge. Talk to Melina and sin the Cardinal who will take you to the collapsing Farum Azula. Once the territory of the collapsing Farum Azula is complete, the next task is to defeat Maliketh, the Black Blade.

After finishing all this, Leyndell becomes the Ashen Capital. But, once you’ve gotten to Leyndell, Ashen Capital, though, the process of finding the Erdtree’s Favor +2 is not simplified at all.
The talisman is located on the eastern side of the capital above the large tree branch in the middle of a big courtyard. You can precisely see where you need to go using the map below.
It should be a large empty area on the map, as shown in the screenshot above. You can get there by moving fast to Grace’s Forbidden Land location and taking the elevator back to the main part of Leyndell.
Go west through the door, run or fight the soldiers and knights in front of you, and go down the stairs. Take the next elevator to the courtyard. When you get there, you’ll see three separate Lesser Ulcerated Tree Spirits at the bottom of the area below you. These enemies prevent you from climbing large trees that you must climb to reach the talisman.
However, if you are near the left wall of the courtyard, you can reach the branches on the other side of the courtyard and plunder the Erdtree’s Favor +2 amulet.
Hopefully, this guide was useful to you and if you follow all the steps accordingly, it should be a lot simpler for you to get your hands on that talisman pretty easily.
