If you’ve made enemies out of NPCs in Elden Ring, Celestial Dew offers a way to mend a broken friendship.
There are too many enemies to count in Elden Ring, but there are also plenty of friends to make in the Lands Between. However, in traditional FromSoftware fashion, players are completely free to murder most NPCs without obstructing the main story.
Killing NPCs is a common way to get their gear, but it also prevents the player from completing their content. Even if you don’t kill them, some unintentional friendly fire can turn them hostile. Celestial Dew is the only way to fix such mistakes, though getting one can be quite the adventure.
Celestial Dew is a consumable item in Elden Ring rarely found in later parts of the game. By using it at the Church of Vows, players can bring dead NPCs back to life as well as neutralize any characters they’ve angered. There is a limited number of Celestial Dews available in a single world, but there’s enough to make up for plenty of mistakes.
To use Celestial Dew, players will need to reach the Church of Vows in Liurnia of the Lakes. It’s located on the east side of the region that approaches the Frenzied Flame Village. The church is occupied by Miriel, a giant talking tortoise wearing a mitre. Fans commonly refer to him as “the Turtle Pope.”
To use a Celestial Dew, head to the statue at the back of the church and choose to atone. This will consume a Celestial Dew and revive all NPCs and turn hostile ones friendly again. Wandering traders are a notable exception, though the Bell Bearing system prevents players from missing out on any loot.
Where to find Celestial Dew in Elden Ring
Celestial Dew is not dropped by any enemies, but they are concentrated in a few areas in the Elden Ring open world.
The most common area to find Celestial Dew is in the forgotten cities of Nokron and Nokstella. Nokron, Eternal City and Night’s Sacred Grounds both have a Celestial Dew to find. Players in Nokstella can find another just north of the Eternal City Site of Grace. Ainsel River Main also has three Celestial Dew spread throughout it, though it’s difficult to access the area until the later stages of the game.
The earliest Celestial Dew in Elden Ring is pretty close to the Church of Vows. The item is found on a corpse slumped up against the south gate of Raya Lucaria. It’s impossible to miss if the player intends to defeat Rennala and unlock the ability to respec their build.
