One of the final requests you will receive from Ranni when completing the quest is to defeat an ominous shadow in Elden Ring. Unfortunately, the location of the Baleful Shadow is not disclosed, so finding this creature will be difficult. Luckily, when she gives you the quest, she puts you on the right path, so finding the beast shouldn’t be too difficult. We share in this guide where to find a Baleful Shadow in Elden Ring.
You can find the Shadow of Calamity in Nokstella, Eternal City. To reach this location, after talking to the Ranni Doll, follow the Ainsel River Main Path and then go right. Keep following the river and you will reach a dam with a door on the left. Go through the door and you will arrive in Nokstella. There is a Place of Grace nearby where you can save your location. Now the next step is to move through the river and meander between silver teardrops and enemies on big ants to turn it into an elevator.
The elevator takes you down the waterfall to a place of grace called the Nokstella Waterfall Basic. Make sure you use the Place of Grace and then go through the tunnel on the other side. There you will find the Baleful Shadow and Ranni’s Doll will comment on the creature. The character looks like Blaidd the Half-Wolf.
