Where to Use the Sewer-Gaol Key in Elden Ring

There is a questline in Elden Ring that tasks players with entering the sewers in Leyndell. This task is given to players when they receive the Sewer-Gaol Key. At this point you may be wondering where to use the key in the sewer. Below I show you where to use the Sewer-Gaol key in Elden Ring.


How to Get to the Sewer in Capital City

Once you reach the Leyndell, Capital City in walls you can go to the sewers (as pointed out in the comments below). To do this make your way through the city until you reach the Avenue Balcony Site of Grace in the middle of the city. From this Site of Grace head down the stairs leading northwest. Go through the double doors and take a left. Run along the railing to the dragon tail then jump over the railing to reach a well. Go down the well. Open the cage door and follow the path forward to arrive in the sewers.

Sewer-Gaol Key Locked Door Location

Both of the above methods of getting to the sewers brings you to the same hallway. This hallway is where we need to be to reach the locked door that is opened by the key. Head northeast in the hallway. Go in the first open door on your left to find the Underground Roadside Site of Grace. Leave this room and continue heading northeast until you see a hole in some grating. Drop down this hole and head through the tunnel going northwest. Follow the tunnel around the corner, past the plants, until you reach the end. Climb the ladder.

In this room you will see a locked door around the corner on the far side. This door can be opened using the Sewer-Gaol Key. Inside this the locked room is the Dung Eater. Speak to him to advance his storyline.

How to Get to the Sewer in Capital of Ash (Alternative)

If you didn’t visit the sewer while the city was normal, fear not. After advancing the main story, an event occurs which covers the city in ash. This turns the city into Leyndell, Capital of Ash. From the Leyndell, Capital of Ash Site of Grace head south until you find an open sewer cover in the street. Carefully drop down the hole using the different platforms. At the bottom you will be in the sewers of Leyndell.

    Having the city of *** so close to the other text is a huge spoiler man. I’m in NG+ but I’m so glad I’ve already completed the game. Have some respect for those that haven’t finished and add that this may be a spoiler at the beginning of this article. Add that there’s another way after game completion at the end. Does no one know how to make a spoiler-less guide??

    “City of Ash” is still a huge fucking spoiler, are you kidding me? Thanks a lot.

      Thanks for the feedback. Sorry for spoiling. I’ve altered the page to make it more explicit that spoilers are in the guide.

    You don’t get teleported back to the city after fire giant either. You go to a totally new place, idk what this guide is on about

    You definitely don’t need to beat the fire giant and burn the tree before doing this. You’re absolutely going to spoil that for people.

      Ye did indeed. Thanks for that.

    • Eli McLean says:

      Thanks for the feedback John. I’ve updated the guide to include both methods of getting to the sewer and have stripped the more spoilery aspects. Thanks again.
