The Elden Ring Varre quest is one of the first you will get the chance to start, but it can take a while to finish. Elden Ring's quests often feature special and unique weapons that can only be earned from their completion, along with completely different areas. For a breakdown of how to finish the Elden Ring Varre quest, read on.

You can't officially begin the quest for a little while into the game, but White-Faced Varre will be the first NPC you'll actually come across, as he's standing just next to The First Step site of grace, which you'll see immediately after entering the open world. Feel free to interact with him then, but before you can begin the quest, you'll have to defeat the Elden Ring Godrick boss in the nearby Stormveil Castle. Once this is complete, go back and see him to kick things off.

After speaking to Varre, he will tell you to head to the Roundtable Hold to speak to Finger Reader Enia, who will be through the doors directly behind where you spawn. She's the character just next to the two giant fingers, so continue speaking to her until the only options you have are the Remembrance menu and the shop. 

It's time to meet Varre again, but he's changed spots. You'll have to find him at the Rose Church, which is located in the Liurnia region. It's found just south-west of the Raya Lucaria Academy entrance, isolated in some shallow water. After finding Varre there, talk to him again, and select the dialogue option "something seemed off." The conversation will continue and Varre will give you five Festering Bloody Fingers. This allows you to invade other players to attempt to kill them.


To continue the quest, you'll need to use three of these Festering Bloody Fingers from your inventory to invade other players, however you don't need to win, so you can make it quick by invading and then quitting instantly. 

Return to Varre once you have finished this process, and he will anoint you as a Knight of Mohg. Continue talking to him so you get given another item called Lord of Blood's Favor, which you'll need to use on a dead maiden for the next section of the quest. There are a few options for this, such as the Church of Inhibition in Liurnia, but we prefer the Four Belfries instead.  

If you travel west from the Rose Church until you reach solid land again, continue north and follow the road until you come to a large hill with giants patrolling. Make your way up there while being sure to avoid the enemies, and you'll find four large monuments, or belfries. In front of three of them are deactivated teleporters that require Imbued Stonesword Keys. One of these can be found at the top belfry, and you'll need to use it in the second belfry. You can note which one is the second by finding the message in front, which reads "Precipice of Anticipation." 

This teleporter will take you to the Chapel of Anticipation, which is the first area in the game, where you'll likely have died to the Grafted Scion. You'll need to defeat this boss if you didn’t before, but once you have, make your way back to the building at the end of this island, and you'll find a maiden. Just follow the button prompt, and you will use the Lord of Blood's Favor. 

You can now return to Varre and talk to him again. You'll need to accept having your finger cut off to officially join as a Knight of Mohg, and then you can continue the conversation to gain your rewards.

To summarise the steps in this quest, do the following:

  1. Speak to Varre after defeating Godrick.
  2. Talk to Enia at the Roundtable Hold.
  3. Return to Varre at the Rose Church in Liurnia, and tell you don't trust the Two Fingers.
  4. Use three of the Festering Bloody Fingers he gives you.
  5. Talk to Varre again to receive the Lord of Blood's Favor.
  6. Get the blood of a maiden from the Chapel of Anticipation.
  7. Return to Varre and let him cut off your finger.

You'll also gain the Pureblood Knight's Medal, which lets you teleport to a late-game area called Mohgwyn's Palace. While you'll likely be too low-level for this area, it's home to the best Elden Ring rune farm location in the entire game, so make sure to check that out.
