Elden Ring has a very lore-rich captivating world waiting for those that dare to venture out into the lands between. If you’re unfortunate, Tarnished stuck amidst this world and have recently found yourself at either the Converted Fringe Tower or the Converted Tower, then you might be wondering what “May erudition light the way,” really means.

We’re well aware that the game’s full of puzzles with solutions lying just in front of those with a keen eye for detail. To make things simpler, however, we’ll be showing you how to solve May Erudition Light The Way Elden Ring puzzle.

May Erudition Light The Way – Converted Tower and Converted Fringe Tower

To get access to the loot in the respective towers, you are going to need to collect the academy Glintstone key (Obtainable from the Academy of Raya Lucaria), the erudition gesture (Received after giving Thops the Glintstone Key), and the Glintstone crown (By killing a crab near the Debate Parlor Site of Grace).

By completing the two puzzles, you’ll be rewarded with:

  • Cannon of Haima
  • Gavel of Haima
  • Memory Stone

How to Unlock the Erudition Gesture

May ‘Erudition’ light the way, is referring to the erudition gesture which can be obtained from Sorcerer Thops. Before he can give it to you, you will have to make your way to the Debate Parlor Site of Grace to give him the Academy Glintstone Key.

As you spawn here, head into the next areal, the large courtyard, and make your way to the left towards the rubble. Climb over the rubble, and continue to go up the stairs in front of you. 

Be careful of the sorcerers raining down spells on you and the enemies in close melee range as they will be able to deal a lot of damage. You can try to eliminate them before moving forward or just rush past them.

Jump over the railing to the left, and follow the path until you reach a dead body hanging over another set of railings. Go onto the rooftops from here and keep heading straight. Climb up the only ladder and continue down the path past the gargoyles accompanied by a sorcerer. 

Keep dropping down from the rooftops here to the lowest level and there will be yet another platform to the right below. 

Jump the distance from here, and you’ll find yourself on top of the site of grace you were previously on. Pick up the key from the chandelier.

Now that you have the academy Glintstone Key, make your way to Sorcerer Thops’ location, which is at the Church of Irith, closest to the Lake-Facing Cliffs site of Grace.

Go to the church, and talk to him to exhaust all dialogues. When the menu pops up, select the option “Give the Academy Glintstone Key”. This will reward you with the erudition gesture.

How to Get the Glintstone Crown

After acquiring the erudition gesture, we’ll be heading back to the Debate Parlor site of grace, where we previously travelled in the first step of getting the Glintstone key.

Head out to the courtyard again from the site of grace. Avoid the stairs we used earlier as we don’t need to go up this time. Go North-East until you reach the edge of the cliff and there will be a crab hiding in one of the bushes.

The crab can be found to the left of this specific mob at the edge of the cliff. Kill it to obtain the Karolos Glintstone Crown.

Perform Erudition in the Tower(s)

Head to the Converted Fringe Tower to perform the erudition.

Stand next to the statue, and equip the Karolos Glinstone Crown prior to performing the gesture. With all conditions fulfilled, open up your gestures, and find ‘erudition’. Select it, and the gateway will open. Make your way to the top of the tower using the elevator to acquire two spells, “Cannon of Haima”, and “Gavel of Haima”.

Do the same for the Converted Tower, and perform the erudition gesture to unlock the treasure at the top.

At the top of the Converted Tower, you’ll be rewarded with a Memory Stone.

Conclusion

The Cannon and Gavel of Haima are two very powerful spells that deal large Area of Effect damage. They aren’t very reliable in Player vs Player situations but can be beneficial in fighting off bosses from here on forth. You can also use the Cannon of Haima to clear out a large group of enemies from a fair distance away without ever putting yourself in danger.

Completing the entirety of this puzzle is definitely worth it, as it rewards you additionally with a Memory Stone which can consequently increase the number of spells you’re able to memorize at a time.
