To solve the Tetsu’s Rise puzzle in Elden Ring you need to seek out three wise beasts. This cryptic hint refers to finding the spirits of three tortoises on the island. For Tetsu’s Rise, you need to complete the puzzle at night to be able to see the spirits at the positions marked above. There’s a Site of Grace on the western side of the island which you can rest at to pass time until nightfall.

The first tortoise spirit is found by heading left from the door, toward the rocks at the island cliff edge. The tortoise should be just ahead of you on the border between the grass and the stone. Hit it once to take it down.

The second wise best is behind the tower, among the tall trees. You’ll need to look upwards, as the tortoise is sitting higher up on the backside of the tree trunk surrounded by blue flowers. Bring a magic staff or a ranged weapon of some kind to strike it once.

The third wise beast is to the right of the door and tower. This one is found down a short drop off some rocks on this side. Look down to see it sitting on a patch of ground not far from a tree. Again, you only need to hit it once to complete the puzzle.
