Explore the Altus Plateau in Elden Ring and you may encounter the mysterious Mirage Rise puzzle. The tower isn’t visible, and a message informs you that you need to touch three phantom crests. Finding them, however, can prove particularly troublesome. In this guide, we’ll explain where to find the three phantom crests to solve the Mirage Rise puzzle in Elden Ring.
Elden Ring Mirage Rise Phantom Crest locations
The Mirage Rise sends you looking for Three Phantom Crests in the nearby area. They’re a pain to find, so we’ve marked the locations of all three on the map below. Scroll below it to find more specific details on each Phantom Crest so you know what to look for.
Mirage Rise Phantom Crest location #1
The first Mirage Rise Phantom Crest is right next to the puzzle message and the eventual tower position. Approach it and press Triangle/Y to interact with it.
Mirage Rise Phantom Crest location #2
The second Mirage Rise Phantom Crest location is to the southwest, in the corner of the valley. When you approach the area, two imp spirits will spawn and attack you. They’ll keep respawning if killed, so run past them and interact with the Crest hidden behind the trees.
Mirage Rise Phantom Crest location #3
The third and final Mirage Rise Phantom Crest location is southeast of the tower. You’ll need to follow the southern edge of the canyon, heading east. The path here will slope upward toward the underside of the large broken bridge. Turn left as it does so and look for a large, distinct rock among the trees. This is the last phantom crest, hidden under a disguise. Attack the rock and it will reveal the final crest for you to interact with.
Once you’ve touched the three Phantom Crests, you can return to Mirage Rise to find the tower has materialized. Climb up to the top and you’ll earn the Mirage Rise rewards of the Unseen Blade and Unseen Form spells.
