How to get the Lantern - Elden Ring

Here's how to get the lantern and what it does in Elden Ring.


As players spend time with Elden Ring, they’ll be looking for every single item and resource to aid them in their journey through The Lands Between. This includes items that provide convenience, such as the Lantern, which can help illuminate the darkest areas. If you’re looking to add one to your inventory, we can show you where to find the Lantern in Elden Ring.

How to get the Lantern - Elden Ring

The Lantern can be equipped and turned on to provide some light around your character.

The Lantern in Elden Ring can be found in two places, but no matter where you go, you will need to purchase it. Thankfully, the price is pretty cheap, especially once you've sunk several hours into the game. Here's where you can find the Lantern:

  • Isolated Merchant in the Weeping Peninsula to the south of Limgrave
  • Nomdic Merchant in Liurnia of the Lakes to the north of Limgrave

Both merchants sell the Lantern for 1,800 Runes. As mentioned above, this isn't too expensive if you've been playing for a while and is well worth the cost. If you're low on funds, consider using a Golden Rune or farming some enemies.

The Lantern is similar to the torch in the sense that it illuminates the surrounding area, helping you better navigate caves and dungeons. Where the Lantern excels over a torch is the fact that it does not need to be held, allowing you to dual-wield weapons or hold one with two hands. By using the Lantern from your inventory, you can simply attach it to your waist. We recommend assigning the Lantern to one of your quick access slots so that you can get to it in a hurry. It won’t disappear from your inventory, but you will frequently need to re-equip it.

That’s how you can get your hands on a Lantern in Elden Ring. It’s a necessary tool to have on your adventure, and you don’t have to go that far out of your way to get one. Swing by our Elden Ring strategy guide for more help finding important items.
