Still looking for Golden Seeds in Elden Ring? It's well worth your time picking up these collectables as they are used to upgrade your flasks, a key consumable you use to restore health and FP for using spells and skills. And unlike in Souls games, you start needing multiple Golden Seeds to increase your flask charge after the first couple of upgrades.

You can find Golden Seeds by small golden saplings, and most of the time these can be found alongside the main roads, or close to certain landmarks—you can even get them by defeating Elden Ring bosses. That said, they are more scarce in the early game, but I've put together this guide to help you out. Here are all of the Elden Ring Golden Seeds we've found so far, broken down by region. We'll add more as and when we find them.
