The Altus Plateau is a region of Elden Ring in the northern part of the Intermediate Lands. The Altus Plateau Map Fragment is near its entrance.
During their adventures in Ring of Elden, players will find Map Fragments scattered around the Midlands, such as the Altus Plateau Map Fragment. Players collect map fragments from Ring of Elden to reveal parts of the map otherwise covered in gray areas. Map Fragments are found perched on large stone obelisks located in the Midlands. Players will often find map shards on their own, but shards like Altus Plateau can be a bit tricky to find.
When players first reach the spectacular Altus Plateau region in the northern part of the map, they will find much of it covered in a gray mass. Like any other region of the map in Ring of Elden, players must first find the matching map fragment to reveal its contents. Once players have collected the map fragment, a pre-determined area of the player’s map will be revealed, showing major structures, landmarks, and any grace sites acquired.
The Altus Plateau can be a confusing area to navigate with all of its trees and forested areas. Players keen to explore every inch of the map will want to find the Altus Board Map Fragment to determine locations that may contain secret areas. Landmarks on the map serve as markers for players to follow and find points of interest. Moreover, when Ring of Elden players unlock all grace sites on the Altus board, they can follow the directions of the arrows on the map to progress in the last main quest. However, players won’t find bosses like Godrick grafted to this section of the map.
Find Altus Plateau Map Fragment in Elden Ring
Before players can find the Altus Board Map Fragment, they must reach the Altus Board. Players can reach Altus plateau in several ways, but the easiest way is to take Dectus’ Great Elevator. Players must open the large Dectus elevator by finding the left and right Dectus medallions. The Left Dectus Medallion is located at Fort Haight in Mistwood after defeating an Elite Knight in a Battle Arena. The Right Dectus Medallion is located at Fort Faroth in Dragonbarrow in front of a plethora of dragons.
Once Ring of Elden players have both halves of the Dectus Medallion, they can unlock the Grand Lift of Dectus. To find the Altus Board Map Fragment, players must take the large Dectus Elevator in the Altus Board. Players can’t let Pride ruin their play session if they don’t find a Map Fragment in Ring of Elden, even if the shard is along a main path like the Altus Plateau shard. Once on the Plateau, head up the road that leads north from the elevator entrance. Players will quickly reach a fork in the road; they have to go up the left path to find the map fragment. Eventually, after going up the left side of the road fork, players will find the Altus Plateau Map Fragment attached to a stone obelisk along the way.
