Elden Ring Golden Seed Guide

Looking for golden seeds in the Elden Ring? Collecting these collectibles is well worth it, as they are used to upgrade your Flasks, a key consumable for your FP to restore health and use spells and abilities. Unlike the Souls game, after the first few upgrades, you start needing multiple gold seeds to increase your flask charge.

You can find golden seeds through golden saplings, mostly by the main roads or near certain landmarks – you can even get them by defeating bosses in Elden Ring. That said, they’re more scarce early in the game, but I’ve put together this guide to help you. Here are all the Elden Ring Golden Seeds we’ve found so far, sorted by region. We’ll add more as we find them.
