Imp Statue Seals are one of the many secrets that you'll find around the land in Elden Ring. These sealed doors are veiled by mist and can only be opened with a Stonesword Key. On this page, you'll find details of all the Imp Statue Seal Locations across the map.

Don't forget to check out our page on Stonesword Key Locations, so you can unlock the following gates.

Imp Statue Seal Locations

There are 37 different Imp Seal Statue Locations in Elden Ring, which will require a total of 47 Stonesword Keys and 3 Imbued Sword Keys to unlock them all. Given that there are 81 Stonesword Keys that can either be found in the world or bought from merchants, you can stand to have as many as 34 keys left over to use in New Game+!


Below you can find each of the Imp Statue Seal Locations organized by region. Note that the vast majority of these require regular Stonesword Keys to unlock; the only exceptions are those of the Four Belfries, which require Imbued Sword Keys. While there are more Stonesword Keys than Imp Statue doors, there are only three Imbued Sword Keys in the game.

The very first Imp Statue you'll come across is in the Stranded Graveyard. It requires two Stonesword Keys and will unlock the Fringefolk Hero's Grave. Be warned, however, that although this Imp Statue is the first one you'll come across, the dungeon is by no means easy - as its filled with poison swamps, giant stone chariot traps, vanishing enemies, and an Ulcerated Tree Spirit boss.

Once you're strong enough to brave it, you'll find it has plenty of worthwhile rewards, including a Golden Seed, Dragon Communion Seal, an Erdtree's Favor Talisman, Banished Knight Oleg Spirit Ashes, and even an Erdtree Greatbow for finding a way to destroy the chariot.

Go through the door and you'll find a chest, to the left, near the fireplace. This will reward you with Crepus's Black-Key Crossbow, as well as 20 Black-Key Bolts to go with it, which are highly rare bolts that can inflict Scarlet Rot poison!

Roundtable Hold Imp Statue Seal 2

  • Keys Required: 2

The second Imp Statue Seal here will require 2 more Stonesword Keys (for a total of 3 in this area), and will award you the Assassin's Prayerbook once you open up the second door.

Inside the cellar room, you'll find two chests. The one on the left will grant you the Godslayer's Seal, the one on the right will give you the Godskin Prayerbook. With these you'll be able to master blackflame incantations, and learn the spells Blackflame and Blackflame Blade.

Note that unsealing the door also unseals a small balcony with a third warrior, which you can then drop onto later if dropping down the rooftops from the top of the ramparts. If you try dropping onto this balcony earlier, you'll be stuck and will need to return to a Site of Grace.
