The Imp’s Seal is in Effect: Elden Ring

On 25th February 2022, the most anticipated game of the year was released – Elden Ring. Elden Ring is an action role-playing game with a riveting premise. Upon entering the game, the player is transported to a land where an all-powerful object known as the Elden Ring has fractured. It is now up to the player to restore the Elden Ring by gathering the broken ring’s shards, restoring harmony in the world while becoming the Elden Lord in the process.

Elden Ring takes place in a vast world where the possibilities are endless. The number of ingredients that make up this world is immense and unless you are a die-hard fan of the game, chances are that there are things you do not know either. One such thing may be the “Imp’s Seal” which we will talk about in this blog.

What is the Imp’s Seal in Elden Ring?

The Imp’s Seal is a barrier placed around several Evergoals to halt the player from moving further. It is a small addition made to increase the story’s esteem and realism. 

When you try to approach an Evergoal like the Weeping Evergoal, you will receive a pop-up stating that the Imp’s Seal is in effect. It is worth mentioning that not all Evergoals have an Imp’s seal placed upon them and can be accessed without any hassle. Getting back to the main topic, in order to proceed any further, you will have to get rid of this seal, but how can one do so?

How to Break the Imp’s Seal in Elden Ring?

Thinking of seals, you may get the idea that it would most likely be challenging to break the Imp’s Seal, but luckily such is not the case. To break the Imp’s Seal, you need to do the following:

Travel around the area where you have encountered the Imp’s Seal and try to locate an Imp Statue. After doing so interact with it and it will ask you to insert a Stonesword key into it. Stonesword keys are magical items that can easily be found throughout the game and are crucial to progress through the game’s story. If you already have the required number of Stonesword keys, then use them and the Imp’s Seal will be broken. The amount of Stonesword keys required often varies between one or two so do not be worried about running out.
