Updated January 22, 2024 by Erik Petrovich: In Elden Ring, the sheer number of Talismans that the game offers players is mind-boggling, and it can be difficult to figure out exactly which work best with a build. The best Dexterity build Talismans tend to directly increase players’ offensive capabilities without improving their defenses. These Dex Talismans can be found throughout the Lands Between, but it’s best to get them as fast as possible if you are set on going with a Dex build. As such, this guide has been updated to help players find each of these best Dex Talismans faster with more detailed location information.
10 Green Turtle Talisman
It’s fair to say that players who wish to wield dexterity weapons in Elden Ring will be quickly consuming stamina. This is because dexterity weapons usually rely on combos and multiple attacks to attack foes.
The Green Turtle Talisman helps players in that aspect, as the talisman will boost the recovery speed of stamina by 8 points a second. This can be great in battle, especially against a boss with small windows for attacks against them.
How To Get Green Turtle Talisman
To obtain this, players simply need to unlock the Stonesword Key area in Summonwater Village. Look for a set of stairs that lead down next to a Stonesword Key statue – it should be surrounded by friendly Turtles.

With 20 levels being given to the player by a single talisman, it’s only fair that in return the player receives 15% more damage taken by enemies when wearing Radagon’s Soreseal.
How To Get Radagon’s Soreseal
Players wishing to collect Radagon’s Soreseal can do so by looting it off of a corpse in Fort Faroth.
