When it comes to jumping great heights or falling from them, in Elden Ring, the spiritsprings are the safest way to do so in the game. These instantly recognizable swirls of wind that emanate from the ground are not exactly hard to spot, and when you see one in the area, chances are, there are secrets or an alternate path waiting to be found at the top.

However, in the Shadow Realm, there is a possibility that the spiritspring you want to use is sealed, making it impossible to get the height boost. The telltale sign is a bunch of rocks arranged neatly in the center of the spiritspring.

Thankfully, they are much larger in person, and while their positions may vary, such as some being hidden around corners, on other platforms, or even in structures, you should be able to find them without venturing too far from the sealed spiritspring. A quick swipe with your weapon of choice will remove the obstacle, enabling the spiritspring to be used again.
