How to Complete Ranni’s Questline in Elden Ring

Ranni is an NPC in Elden Ring that you can first encounter at the Church of Elleh after being gifted Torrent—the spectral steed. Ranni functions as a quest-giver in Elden Ring and one of the three major endings is directly related to her questline.

First Introduction

While exploring Limgrave for the first time you will be running around somewhat aimless until Melina appears before you to gift Torrent to you. Melina usually appears when you rest at the fourth Site of Grace you discover in Limgrave. Immediately after getting Torrent press and fast travel back to the Church of Elleh. Once you get there it will be night time and an NPC will be sitting on a wall nearby. This is Ranni. Exhaust her dialogue and you will get a Summoning Bell and the wolves Ashen Spirit before she disappears.

Second Introduction

After fighting through Carian Manor located North-West of Liurnia, you will enter an area with three towers. Selvius’ Rise, Renna’s Rise, and Ranni’s Rise. You want to head to Ranni’s Rise and go to the very top to speak to Ranni. Exhaust all her dialogue and accept her request to find the hidden treasure of Nokron. After speaking with Ranni you will have to go back down the tower and speak to her three advisers—War Counselor Iji, Blaidd, and Selvius before you leave. From here you will have to travel to Siofra River in Nokron to meet with Blaidd though this part can be skipped until you defeat Radahn.

Meet with Blaidd

You can get into Nokron by using the Siofra River Well in Limgrave. Once you get into Nokron you can find another lift at the back of the area that will lead up to the Siofra River Bank Site of Grace (SoG). From this SoG head forward towards the cliff edge and look to the left to see a collapsed bridge columb. Blaidd should be stood nearby.

Talk to Blaidd and he will say he’s suspicious of Selvius and ask you to go speak with him. Travel back to Ranni’s Rise and head south towards Selvius’ Rise to speak with him. He will mention a person called Sellen—who you may have already met at this point—and give you an item called Selvius’ Introduction. Sellen can be found in Waypoint Ruins Cellar in Limgrave and talking to will inform you that you need to defeat Radahn to reveal Nokron’s secrets.

After Defeating Radahn

Once you’ve defeated Radahn head to the Fort Haight West Site of Grace and travel West to the bottom of Mistwood Ruins to find a large chasm has opened up. You can travel down into this chasm where you will enter Nokron, Eternal City. Travelling through this area is pretty straightforward and will lead you to finding Ranni’s “hidden treasure”—the Fingerslayer Blade—in a chest under a massive skeleton. Once you have this you can return to Ranni.

Visiting Ranni Again

At Ranni’s Rise, talk to Ranni until you exhaust all her dialogue and she will give you the Carian Inverted Statue item. Travel North of Ranni’s Rise to Renna’s Rise and go to the very top to use a teleporter which will take you to Nokstella. Immediately in front of you will be a small doll that looks a lot like Ranni. Pick it up and rest at the nearest SoG and choose to talk with the doll. Exhaust her dialogue until she repeats herself.

Progress through Nokstella and defeat the “Baleful Shadow” invader—that Ranni spoke about—and he will drop the Discarded Palace Key. Keep progressing through the area and you will come to a large Scarlet Rot lake. Traverse to the far end while keeping your health topped up so you don’t die.

Defeat Astel, Naturalborn of the Void

After crossing the Scarlet Rot lake, you will find yourself in an area with several bug enemies. Completely avoid them and follow the little Scarlet Rot river in the middle of the room until it stops at a waterfall. In the middle of the waterfall is an empty coffin you can press on to be transported to a new area where you will fight Astel.

Astel is incredibly huge and has some devastating AoE attacks. I would recommend being level 90+ for this fight as it’s quite difficult. Regardless, once you defeat him fast travel back to the Raya Lucaria Grand Library SoG and open the locked chest nearby to get the Dark Moon Ring. Take it back to the SoG where you defeated Astel and you should be able to progress forward where you’ll yourself in a new area with a dilapidated church nearby. Go inside and jump down a hole next to the SoG to find Ranni. Give her the ring and pick up the Dark Moon Greatsword as soon as she disappears. Ranni’s questline is now complete and the Age of Stars ending has been secured (you will have to summon Ranni at the very end of the game to trigger this ending).
