Yeas after the game’s release, Elden Ring fans have finally discovered a secret related to its upcoming DLC, Shadow of the Erdtree, after director Hidetaka Miyazaki’s tease.

Recently, during an interview, Elden Ring director Hidetaka Miyazaki had teased that, at the time, there was a secret that had yet to be discovered. He said that whether that’s up to user interpretation or up to just further investigation and playing, its discovery is something he had been looking forward to. He added that it was a question of when and not if. That discovery has finally happened, as Reddit user has shared their latest findings about an in-game item called the Candletree Wooden Shield.

The item description for the Candletree Wooden Shield reads, “A tall, medium-sized wooden shield. Light for its size, and easy to handle. Thought to represent a surreptitious prophecy of cardinal sin, the lit candle-tree design was forbidden.” The design of the Candletree appears to serve as the symbol for Messmer’s faction. Messmer is depicted as the red-haired character in the Shadow of the Erdtree trailer. The Reddit user also pointed out that the candletree is described as a secret prophecy, suggesting that Messmer was wiped away from the history of the Lands Between due to his cardinal sin.

Previously, in its official press release regarding the launch date for the upcoming expansion for Elden Ring, Bandai Namco Entertainment revealed that the game’s sales have now surpassed 23 million units worldwide. The cumulative number is obtained from distribution figures of the physical version and sales figures of the downloadable versions including those from Steam/PC.

Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree is priced at $39.99 for existing owners of the base game. Those who have yet to set foot in the Lands Between now have the option of purchasing the Shadow of the Erdtree Edition for $79.99, which includes both the base game and the expansion. Deluxe (digital) and Collector’s (physical) Editions will also be available with additional content.
