Now that you already know Bewitching Branch is a consumable item, it also serves the role of Keepsake for your character. Keepsakes are the items that you can acquire during character creation. There are a total of 9 Keepsakes available for players early on in the game. One of them also includes Bewitching Branch.

However, that is completely optional and you can skip pursuing character build with no Keepsakes. Meanwhile, if you are planning to obtain the consumable item of Bewitching Branch, you can consider other approaches as you can no longer add it as the Keepsakes for your character. Let’s have a look at these approaches to find your Bewitching Branch in Elden Ring. 

Purchasing the Bewitching Branch in Elden Ring

One of the best approaches to getting the Bewitching Branch is to purchase the consumable item from the merchant. Now you may wonder as there are many merchants in the game. However, Bewitching Branch is available for sale by only one merchant known as “Nomadic Merchant”. You can find this merchant in Liurnia of the Lakes, which is found in the extreme bottom portion of your map. Search for Bellum Church as the merchant can be found beneath the church on the cliffside.

Upon speaking to the merchant, you may purchase the Bewitching Branch for 1,600 Runes. This may seem like a heavy investment on your side. However, considering the series of tactical advantages during the heat of battle, this investment is surely worth it for your character. The only downside is that you will be paying 1,600 Runes for only one consumable item. Meanwhile, if you start your character and put Bewitching Branch as a Keepsake, you will receive five items in the inventory. If you are short on Runes you can consider the Runes farming strategy in Elden Ring to make the unique consumable item more affordable for your character. 

Obtaining the Bewitching Branch

Apart from purchasing the consumable item, you can also loot it off from a corpse in a specific location. This approach does not involve the investment of Runes, as you will be visiting the location and looting the item. But it does cost you the trouble of engaging in combat with enemies.

For that instance, all you need to do is to pay a visit to the Weeping Peninsula and reach the corner of the cliff all above the waterfall. Find a ledge where you will see numerous bats surrounding a corpse. You will have to kill these bats to easily gain access to the corpse and obtain the Bewitching Branch. Bring your best melee or ranged weapons to easily kill these bats and claim your reward of the Bewitching Branch. This time, you will receive a stack of three Bewitching Branches, which makes this approach more feasible and effective. 

Crafting the Bewitching Branch

If hunting the Bewitching Branch around the map of Lands Between does not seems to be your approach, you can consider the final strategy of crafting your own Bewitching Branches. As said earlier, consumable items will last and require players to either receive as a reward by defeating enemies or obtain them from the above-mentioned location. This is why you must also be able to craft to create as many Bewitching Branches for your character. 

Unfortunately, crafting the Bewitching Branch is not going to be an easy feat and involves story progression for players. Firstly, you will need a Fevor’s Cookbook that holds all the secrets and ingredients to craft the consumable item. To obtain the cookbook, you must complete the Gideon Ofnir quests at Mohgwyn Dynasty Mausoleum. Here you will be fighting a boss, which we might not reveal for the completionists players. 

Once you have the cookbook, you will have to proceed to the next step of finding the crafting materials. These include one Sacramental Bud and one Miquella’s Lilly. Players can easily farm for Sacramental Buds at Mt. Gelmir. Cross the bridge and you will find various cliffsides with Sacramental Buds.

On the other side, Miquella’s Lilly is found just a little further at Behind Carian Manor. Follow the straight path on the map and you will be able to see 3-5 Miquella’s Lillies. Once you have all these, you will be able to craft your own Bewitching Branch.

However, utilizing the Bewitching Branch also involves a certain FP cost. It requires 14 FP to use the Bewitching Branch that you have purchased or crafted for your character. Your character can hold a total of ten Bewitching Branches. This means you can craft as many as you want and take them with your journey to the dangerous world of Elden Ring. 

Bewitching Branch is a great resource available to players to make the most out of their playthrough. You can either incorporate the item as a Keepsake earlier in the character creation. Or you can turn the tides by crafting your own items by collecting the right material. Only this way you can benefit from the tactical advantage offered by the unique consumable item.
