Elden Ring

In Elden Ring, there are so many different ways to die. I’ve already made guides to curing poison and stopping blood loss, but what about flames? Fire will kill you pretty quickly in this game, but the good news is that there’s an item that will give you a temporary buff to reduce fire damage.

How do you reduce fire damage?

Elden Ring - Fireproof Dried Liver

The consumable item you are looking for, my friend, is Fireproof Dried Liver. Chomping one of these will lower your fire damage temporarily, preventing you from being a cooked goose. You might want to stock up on this stuff before you fight Godrick the Grafted in Stormveil Castle.

Thankfully, you can craft the stuff. Before you do that, however, you’re going to need the recipe.

Where do you get the recipe for Fireproof Dried Liver?

Elden Ring - Armorer's Cookbook

The particular pamphlet you’re looking for is called the Armorer’s Cookbook [1], and it’s tucked away in kind of an obscure location in Limgrave. If you check the location in the map above, you’ll find some soldiers who set up a camp in the middle of some massive pieces of rubble.

Be careful when you go in, because inside you’ll find several soldiers, one of whom is on horseback, as well as a whole bunch of wolves. Once you clear out the camp, you can nab yourself the recipe book from a corpse that’s just chilling there.

Now you can craft your consumables!

How do you craft Fireproof Dried Liver?

Elden Ring - Fireproof Dried Liver

Once you have the Armorer’s Cookbook [1], you can simply bring open your crafting menu and select Fireproof Dried Liver. You’ll just need:

  • 3 Rowa Fruit
  • 1 Beast Liver
  • 1 Smoldering Butterfly

One thing I should point out here is that you can only hold five of these at a time. If you craft more than that, the extras will be sent to storage (which you can retrieve from any Site of Grace by selecting the “Sort chest” option).

The ingredients shouldn’t be too hard to find. The Rowa Fruit is virtually everywhere in this game. Just look to the nearest bush and you’ll probably find some. It’s the most common resource in the world, as far as I can tell. It looks like this:

The Beast Liver comes from herbivorous animals, which means you want to kill some of those little hoppy rodent things with the long tails. You know, the ones that look like this:

I apologize for the quality of the photo — these things are really hard to photograph because they’re super skittish.

Note that the Beast Liver is a semi-rare drop, so you might have to kill a whole bunch of rodents to get just a few livers. A decent place to farm them is the area surrounding the Artist’s Shack, which is just to the east of where you found the Armorer’s Cookbook. Keep in mind they don’t always seem to appear in every possible location, so you might have to try a few other places (like the First Step and the woods north of the Church of Elleh) before checking back at the Artist’s Shack.

And then you’ll need some Smoldering Butterflies. Smoldering Butterflies like to flutter around fires. But not just any fires; no, they only congregate around the very specific kind of fire shown in the image below.

Elden Ring - Smoldering Butterflies

You can find some Smoldering Butterflies in the camp where you found the Armorer’s Cookbook [1], but another great place to farm them is Dragon-Burnt Ruins in Agheel Lake.

Occasionally, enemies that chuck fire pots at you will also drop Smoldering Butterflies, but that’s not a super efficient way to farm them.

And that’s how you craft Fireproof Dried Liver in Elden Ring! Now go out there and get yourself nice and toasty!
