Domain of Dragons painting solution - Elden Ring

Where to find the Domain of Dragons painting and the location it depicts in Elden Ring.


The Domain of Dragons painting is probably the most difficult one to solve in the Elden Ring expansion. Sure, you probably know it’s on Jagged Peak, but the incessant storm makes it difficult to know where to look. Here’s where to find the painting and its solution location, along with what you get.

Domain of Dragons painting location

Start at the main Site of Grace and go through the shortcut door on the right. You'll need to have opened this, else you'll need to wrap around via the left. Look for the ladder to go down to the moat and through the waterfall.

The Domain of Dragons painting is located in Shadow Keep, in a room hidden in the moat that leads to the Castle Watering Hole. From the Main Gate Plaza Site of Grace, go through the door on your right (this shortcut will need to be unlocked) and then go up the stairs. Turn right at the top and look for the ladder along the left edge.

Go down the ladder into the moat and pass through the waterfall. Continue through the rooms to locate the painting sitting on an easel. While you’re here, you could also get started on unlocking the eastern area of the map.

The Domain of Dragons painting shows an area on Jagged Peak accessed via the Jagged Peak Mountainside Site of Grace. Even though Jagged Peak is covered in a thick storm, once you reach the area of the painting, the sky will clear (only while you’re stood in the one spot).

Start at the Jagged Peak Mountainside Site of Grace and follow the path up the hill that’s covered in dead dragons. The painting is to the right of the first spiritspring, up a jumble of rocks. You can climb the rocks on Torrent or use the spiritsprint. Be aware that the spiritspring will try to take you up the main path.

You should hopefully see the ghostly chair and when you approach it, the painter will appear. Look out toward the Scadutree and the storm will dissipate, revealing what the artist painted. You will receive the Rock Heart consumable item for your trouble. This turns you into a dragon!

The Domain of Dragons is probably the most difficult painting to solve in the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The fact that Jagged Peak is constantly covered in a fog and a storm makes it tough to work out where you need to go. However, with that out of the way, you can get back to solving the other paintings.
