Where to find Golden Seeds in Elden Ring

Alex Tsiaoussidis

Golden Seeds increase the number of Flask of Crimson Tears and Flask of Cerulean Tears you can hold in Elden Ring. There’s plenty to find so here’s everything you need to know.

The Flask of Crimson Tears and the Flask of Cerulean Tears are two of the most important items in Elden Ring. The former is used to restore an amount of HP while the latter is used to restore an amount of FP.

As you progress throughout the game, the amount they restore becomes negligible as your HP and FP pools increase. Fortunately, this can be solved by finding Golden Seeds, which give you more of them.

Initially, one seed will be enough to add a new Flask of Crimson Tears or Flask of Cerulean Tears. However, once you have six, you’ll need to spend two. Once you have eight, you’ll need to spend three, so on and so forth.

This means you’ll need to find 30 seeds to reach the maximum number of flasks, which can be a grind.

Golden Seeds increase the number of Flasks you can hold in Elden Ring.

Where to find Golden Seeds in Elden Ring

Golden Seeds are more difficult to find than Sacred Tears because they’re not confined to specific locations like churches. They’re generally found under small golden trees scattered throughout the land, but not always.

Sometimes, you’ll need to kill a powerful foe to obtain one — whether it’s because they’re holding one or simply guarding a tree. To make things easier for you, we’ve compiled a list of all the known locations so far.
