How to unlock Oridys's Rise in Elden Ring

Near the front of the tower, you will find a small Imp statue with a message: "Seek three wise beasts". While vague, this message holds the key to the Oridys's Rise puzzle. After reading the message, three ethereal turtles will spawn around the tower. To get inside, you need to find and kill all three of these turtles.

Below, you'll find the locations of all three 'wise beasts' at Oridys's Rise:

The first wise beast will spawn right behind you after reading the message on the statue. Simply turn in the opposite direction of the tower to spot the turtle standing in the open.

The second wise beast is just beside the tower, to the left of the steps leading up to the entrance, in a bush.

The final wise beast is actually invisible. You'll find it in a shallow pool on the southwest side of Oridys's Rise, splashing about in the water. These splashes are rather infrequent, but you can just slash about in the pond to kill it.

After killing all three wise beasts, head inside the tower and make your way to the top to find a treasure chest. Open the chest to get a Memory Stone, which gives you an extra spell slot. Intelligence or Faith-based classes will likely use a lot of spells, so having an extra slot is crucial. Head to a Site of Grace to equip a spell into your new spell slot.
