Find all the map fragments in Elden Ring to clear all fog and explore the open world with ease.
Elden Ring brings a lot of change and new mechanics to the classic FromSoftware formula. One of which is the map that you use to navigate the world. But there’s a catch when you start your adventure; you’ll notice that your map is blank, covered by fog. Well, you can’t expect it to be simple in Elden Ring.
Different areas on this map are gradually unlocked by obtaining Map Fragments. As the name suggests, these Map Fragments are pieces of a map that unlock the entire area of that location. With it, you’ll see the area you found it in is now clear and detailed, showing all topography, structures, POIs, etc. Hence, it is an essential piece of item that you should always look for if you want to traverse better and explore all types of loot.
Map Fragments are always found in front of a Guide Stele, a large carved stone. These structures are, in turn, located near roads and pathways. Moreover, as you explore a new area, the part will become visible around the map. Always try traveling through pathways and also keep an eye on the map to see if any Guide Stele location reveals itself as you explore places around it.
