The first step to skipping Rellana is to reach the Castle Front site of Grace near Castle Ensis. It may worry players to get this close to Rellana, but worry not, this is as close as we get. From Castle Front, follow these steps:

  • From Castle Front, head east along the main road. At the fork, stay on the upper, marked path.
  • After you get past the spiked barrier, and the path begins to curve, stick to the left andride alongside the rock wall.
  • Head toward the cliff. You should see an enemy standing right at the edge. This is where you want to begin to drop into the ravine below.
  • Make your way down to the bottom of the ravine. There are several rock ledges that will guide you down safely.
  • Once you reach the bottom, make your way up the opposite side. Once you reach the top, stick close to the left side of the ravine, against the rock wall.
  • Continue along the rock wall, and you'll eventually reach a blocked Spiritspring. If you reach the Elder's Hovel, you've gone too far.
  • The rocks you need to clear to open the spring are above the edge of the rock ledge that rises just a tiny bit further east from the Spiritspring.
  • Once the Spiritspring is cleared, use it to jump to a ledge, then turn right and find the second Spiritspring. This one is open and will take you to the 'Behind the Fort of Reprimand' site of grace.

You are now in the Scadu Altus. Free to exit the Fort of Reprimand and explore as you see fit. There are a number of powerful items in the region, though you may want to pick up the Scadu Altus map fragment before doing anything else. Be careful as you exit the rock tunnel that leads in and out of the fort grounds, as there is a massive Ghostflame Dragon as soon as you exit. However, if you decide to take it down, you will get one of Shadow of the Erdtree's few Somber Ancient Dragon Smithing Stones, which could be helpful. You should return to face Rellana eventually, as Shadow of the Erdtree: How to Skip Rellana (Scadu Altus Shortcut) (5)Rellana's Twin Blade's are extremely useful in the early game.
