Elden Ring Mirage Rise guide - Phantom Chest locations and how to solve puzzle

The world of Elden Ring features unique and interesting landmarks for you to discover as you journey through the Lands Between. A few of these landmarks are called Rises which require you to solve puzzles to access them.

In this post, we are going to look at one of the Rises in the game called the Mirage Rise and how to solve the puzzles required to access it. So if you've struggled to get into this one, we've got you covered.

How to find the Phantom Crests in Elden Ring?

When you first happen upon Mirage Rise, you will be confused to find that nothing where the location on the map indicates it should be. The reason for this is that the Rise is hidden until players solve a puzzle to make it appear.

When you reach the locations the Rise should be, you will find a tome that will have an instruction on it that reads: "Touch the three phantom crests". Essentially means that players must find and interact with three Phantom Crests in the world, and once you have done so, the Tower will no longer be hidden, and you will be able to access it.

The locations of these three phantom Crests are shown on the map above, and require you to do a little bit of riding with your trusty steed Torrent to find them.

The first of the three phantom crests you need to find to access the Mirage Rise is right next to the tome once you read it. This is the first of the three you need to touch.

The next requires a little bit of riding, so call on Torrent and head southwest. After riding for a short time you will come across some phantoms imps and the second phantom crest will be near them.

The final Crest requires a little bit of investigation and a keen eye to find. Hop on Torrent once more and ride east from the second crest. And stop once you are just about to reach the Forest-Spanning Greatbridge Site of Grace.

Once there, walk around, and keep your eye out for a large boulder in the vicinity that is pointed to on our map. The boulder has a distinct glow at night so if you can't find it, wait until nightfall to search the spot.

After finding it, simply strike the boulder with any weapon to reveal the final Crest. Just like the Mirage tower, this boulder was a mirage and once you touch the final crest inside, the Mirage Rise will be revealed and you will be able to scale it.

Now you can head back to the tower as located on your map to find it standing there in all its glory. Now scale the tower until you get to the top and claim the rewards inside.

Inside you will find a chest containing the Unseen Blade and Unseen Form sorceries. The former allows your right-hand weapon to become completely invisible and the latter allows you to become partially invisible.

And finally, the corpse sitting in the chair will give you a Slumber Egg, which can be used when crafting Clarifying Cured meat and Clarifying White Cured Meat. And the Mirage Rise has been conquered.
