Getting off the Ainsel River Well

The Ainsel River can be reached from the Ainsel River Well in Liurnia. By moving the Lift on the well and going down, one can reach the Ainsel River.

Route to Ainsel River Main

Ainsel River Main can be reached by using the Portal (Gateway) located at Renna's Rise. To use the Portal (Gateway), proceed first with the Ranni Questline. Nokstella, Eternal City and Lake of Rot can be reached from Ainsel River Main.

Tips! Until the gateway to Ainsel River Main is unlocked, only the Ainsel River area can be explored.

You Can Also Go From Deeproot Depths

The sarcophagus in Deeproot Depths can be used to move to Ainsel River Main. However, it is easier to warp from the Ranni Questline if you have already progressed to the Ranni Questline because you need to destroy the ones that appear in order to get to the Ranni Questline.

The Map Fragment of Ainsel River can be obtained from a body in a building in the area past the dynastic ruins of Ur. The path from the well is long and the enemies are strong, so we should proceed while releasing the Site of Grace along the way.

Tips! There is a Merchant just around the corner, so use that as a landmark to find it.

Beware Of Enemies Hurling Rocks

Enemies appear in the ruins and will hurl rocks toward you from a distance. You can avoid rocks by hiding behind walls and pillars, so always watch out for shadows from incoming attacks as you search. They don't have any significant item drops when defeated and do not revive when you take a rest at the Site of Grace, so you can defeat them if they get in the way of your exploration.

▲ By climbing up the fallen pillars, you can reach the point where the attack can reach you.

How To Defeat The Boss (Dragonkin Soldier of Nokstella)

Item Drop Spell: Frozen Lightning Spear

Summon Spirit Ashes And Attack From Behind

Dragonkin Soldier of Nokstella mainly attacks from the front, so it is recommended to attack from behind using Spirit Ashes as bait. If you summon Spirit Ashes, which have a high attack performance in battle, they can be targeted for a longer period of time, allowing you to repeatedly attack consistently to beat the enemy.

Spirit Ashes List & Best Spirits

A Long-Range Means Of Attack Is Preferable

▲ The weapon used in the image is Halo Scythe.

Dragonkin Soldier of Nokstella's attacks have a long reach, so if you have the means to attack from a distance, you can do damage safely and efficiently. Since the opponent does not have much HP, aim for a quick battle with a series of skill shots.
