Radagon’s Scarseal is a Talisman that gives Elden Ring players a small boost to four major stats, but it has a big downside.
Talismans in Elden Ring come in all shapes and sizes, and some of the game’s most powerful options can be found pretty early on. Including Radagon’s Scarseal, there are four Soreseal/Scarseal Talismans in Elden Ring: two styled after Marika, and two styled after Radagon.
Radagon’s Scarseal gives players a pretty hefty buff across the board with one important drawback. It’s more useful at low levels than high levels, like many Talismans in Elden Ring, and although its upgraded version (Radagon’s Soreseal) is also easy to find, Radagon’s Scarseal only requires players to defeat an easy Evergaol boss rather than navigate an end-game zone.
Radagon’s Scarseal Increases Str, Dex, Vigor, and Endurance by 3
Radagon’s Scarseal gives improvements to four stats that are important to almost every Elden Ring player. A +3 to Strength and Dexterity increases damage output and can help underleveled characters meet Stat requirements for new gear. A +3 in Vigorand Endurance helps to negate this Talisman’s downside: a 10% increase to damage taken across the board.
Ultimately, 10% is not too much of a damage increase to worry about, especially when the Talisman also increases your HP and Max Equip Load, allowing players to use better armor than normal. It’s an item most players later replace with something more specific, but because it essentially gives players 12 free levels in relevant stats, it’s one Elden Ring‘s most popular Talismans.
How To Get Radagon’s Scarseal
Radagon’s Scarseal can be found before ever fighting a major boss. In the Weeping Peninsula, just south of Limgrave Main and accessible via the Bridge of Sacrifices, head west towards the field where the Walking Mausoleum can be found. If you’re heading towards Castle Morne, you’re going the wrong way.
The Weeping Evergaol is north of this valley-like area, just below the Fourth Church of Marika. It takes one Stonesword Key to unlock access to this Evergaol, which contains the Ancient Hero of Zamor boss fight. Down this enemy and you will be rewarded with Radagon’s Scarseal after being teleported back to the normal world.
Elden Ring is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, and Xbox One and Series X|S.
