Elden Ring map fragment locations for Limgrave, Weeping Peninsula

How to flesh out the early game regions on your map.

The Elden Ring map is something new for a FromSoftware game – allowing you to piece together the world better as you explore.

However, when you start Elden Ring, you’ll notice your map will be largely barren. Though the map can be used, and key locations such as Graces and dungeons will be added, the underlying surroundings will be missing until you find a Map Fragment.

This page explains where to find early game Map Fragment locations to help you navigate around the world easier.

How to fill the empty map in Elden Ring: What are Map Fragments and where can you find them?

There is a Map Fragment for each main region of Elden Ring. If the map you start to uncover is blank, then there’s a Map Fragment to help you uncover it.


Map Fragments can be found at the base of specific obelisks. Chances are they are close to enemies, making their retrieval far from trivial.

However, like most items, you are free to sprint to and away from the Map Fragment easily enough.


With this, and the early game Map Fragment locations in mind, you will soon be able to flesh out the Elden Ring map and plan ahead easier when it comes to exploration.

West Limgrave Map Fragment location

To find the Map Fragment for the opening area of the game, you want to head to Gatefront Ruins, a destroyed settlement at the foot of a gate located north-west of where you begin.


You’ll find the Map Fragment at the base of an obelisk to the side of the main path running north-to-south along the area.


Starting from the north, backstab the enemy to the left, then when the coast is clear, quickly run down and grab the Map Fragment.


While you are here, it’s well worth also collecting the Whetstone Knife, allowing you to equip Ash of War abilities, alongside one of the Grace points nearby which grants you the ability to level up in Elden Ring and get the horse.

East Limgrave Map Fragment location

The East Limgrove Map fragment is located in Mistwood forest.


Specifically, it’s just to the side of the road, north-east from Mistwood Ruins.


When we arrived, there was a very large bear next to a tree, which wasn’t fazed by our presence, allowing us to investigate the obelisk easily.


While you are here, it’s worth getting the Nomadic Warrior’s Cookbook (4) from the corpse next to the bear, provided you can make a quick getaway!


Once you have settled on a starting class and starting Keepsake item, you should first work out how to level up, how to unlock the horse, Ashes of War, crafting and multiplayer. Need some direction from there? Try finding map fragments, flask upgrades and the best weapons. If you want to improve your prowess, then we recommend rune farming, finding smithing stone locations and Stonesword Keys – especially against the likes of Magrit.

Weeping Peninsula Map Fragment location

The Weeping Peninsula Map Fragment is located in the south-east. If you haven’t already visited the region, you can do so more or less from the start of the game – make sure you have the horse Torrent, then speed over the Bridge of Sacrifice in the south-east of Limgrave, then follow the road south.

First, start by head to the wall that runs along the middle of the southern region, where you will find a merchant and a site of grace, positioned here:


Proceed south down the path, and very shortly, the Map Fragment will be on your right.


Don’t proceed any further – huge arrows will rain down upon you otherwise!
