Paintings in Elden Ring allow players to take a break from the fighting and dive into more scenic-themed quests.
It’s no secret that Elden Ring can be punishing. Despite being labeled the best game of all time by Open Critic, Elden Ring is not for the faint of heart.
Sometimes, you’ll encounter certain items that offer no explanations during your travels. Most of the time, they’re pretty helpful and offer cool rewards.
One of these items is the paintings you will encounter in Elden Ring. These offer cool rewards if you solve the puzzle behind them.
Here’s where you can find them all and how to solve them!
