|[Roundtable Hold Unlocked] Appears At Roundtable Hold
Sitting in a chair just by the warp point
While you have the Deathroot in your inventory, talk to D. Show him the Deathroot and ask him to introduce you to Gurranq. Note that D's location changes depending on whether or not you have unlocked the Roundtable Hold.
Quickest Way To Obtain Deathroot Is By Defeating Tibia Mariner
|Location In Map
If you are in the early stages of the game, you can get the Deathroot by defeating the Tibia Mariner boss in Summonwater Village north of Limgrave. The boss is so weak that it can be defeated with initial equipment if you try hard enough, making it quite easy to obtain.
|Location In Map
After speaking with D, the location of the warp gate will be marked on the map. Use the warp gate to teleport to the location of Gurranq. Once you arrive, open the door in front of you to enter the building, and talk to Gurranq to obtain the item. When you have obtained the Deathroot, hand it over to Gurranq to exchange it for an item.
D moves to Roundtable Hold after he introduces you to Gurranq. Once you've unlocked the Roundtable Hold, rest at a Site of Grace and head over to Roundtable Hold to speak with D. Afterwards, you can learn Incantations by talking to D.
- Obtain Weathered Dagger From Fia At Roundtable Hold
- Speak With D And Give Him The Weathered Dagger At Roundtable Hold
- Rest At A Site Of Grace And You'll Find D Dead In The Back Room
Go speak with Fia at Roundtable Hold. If you talk to her, she will ask to embrace you. However, if you have gone to Altus Plateau, an option 'May I ask a favor?' will appear after talking to her several times. If you choose it, she will give you the Weathered Dagger.Altus Plateau - Map & How To Get To Location
Use Baldachin's Blessing
When Fia embraces you, you will receive the Baldachin's Blessing. However, you will also receive a debuff that reduces your Maximum HP while you have it. The item is not required to progress the questline, and if you need the item, you can acquire it again by simply embracing her. Therefore, it is recommended to use and consume the item immediately.
After receiving the Weathered Dagger from Fia, speak to D sitting near the initial position of the Roundtable Hold and give him the dagger.
After giving the dagger, examine the center of the table (Site of Grace) and reload to progress. You'll see that D is gone, so go ahead to the back room as shown in the video above. Once you get there, you'll see D's corpse and Fia will disappear somewhere.
The Twinned Armor Set Can Be Obtained From D's Corpse
You can obtain the Twinned Armor Set from D's corpse. You will need it later if you want to trigger D's quest at the end of Fia's questline.

Route To Fort Haight West ~ Nokron ~ Siofra Aqueduct
You can also go underground from the lift at the Siofra River Well. Take note that if you go underground from the Siofra River Well, you will not be able to go to the area on the side of the aqueducts.
|D's Quest Flags Not Required Here
|※ If you have activated D's quest flag here, it will slightly change the outcome of Fia's questline and increase the rewards you receive. Please open the drop-down button for more details.
Give The Twinned Armor Set To The NPC (D's Brother) At The Aqueducts
As you advance through the Siofra Aqueducts, you will find an NPC (D's brother) nodding off in front of the boss area. If you speak to him while the Twinned Armor Set is in your inventory, you can give it him and a quest flag will activate which will slightly change the ending of Fia's questline. In this ending, you will be able to get D's weapon, so make sure to pick up the Twinned Armor Set from D's corpse if you haven't yet.
Route From The Siofra Aqueducts To D's Brother
You Cannot Give The Armor If You Modified It With Tailoring Tools
Note that if you modify the Twinned Armor Set with tailoring tools, you won't be able to give it to D' brother. Spend some runes to revert it back to its original state.
Proceed to the end of the aqueduct to begin the boss battle. After defeating the boss, rest at a nearby Site of Grace and proceed to the end of the waterfall. You will find a sarcophagus that can warp you to the next area if you interact with it.
Route From The Site Of Grace In Siofra Aqueduct To Before The Boss Area
Once you warp to the bottom of Deeproot Depths, head deeper until you reach the boss area. The route is complicated, so please refer to the video above as you proceed.
When you advance to the boss area in the back, a series of boss fights will begin. When you have defeated the boss, you will obtain the sorcery Fia's Mist. Speak with Fia and choose 'No, I want to be held' to proceed with the questline.
After selecting "No, I want to be held," Fia will remark, "We must look for another existing mark." This refers to the Cursemark of Death, which can be obtained by clearing the Divine Tower of Liurnia at the end of the Carian Study Hall in Liurnia and heading to the top floor.
You Will Need To Obtain The Hidden Treasure In Nokron First
Give the hidden treasure obtained from Nokron to Ranni and speak to her again to receive the Carian Inverted Statue, which is required to go to Divine Tower of Liurnia. After receiving the statue, head to the Divine Tower of Liurnia from Carian Study Hall.Ranni Questline & Location Guide
Once you have obtained the Cursemark of Death, head back to Across the Roots and give it to Fia. To fast travel underground, open the map and press R3 (right stick pressed). You will be given the Radiant Baldachin's Blessing after the conversation that follows.
If you talk to her long enough, she will eventually say, "This is goodbye, my dear." Rest at the Site of Grace after she says those words.
You'll find Fia sleeping in the same spot after resting at a Site of Grace. If you approach Fia while she is sleeping, you will be given the option to touch her, and if you select 'yes,' a battle with the Lichdragon Fortissax boss will begin.
After defeating Lichdragon Fortissax, return to Fia and obtain the Mending Rune Of The Death-Prince.
You Get A Slightly Distinctive Ending
After defeating the final boss, the player can use the Mending Rune of the Death-Prince to Restore the Elden Ring by touching the broken Marika with the rune in their possession. The trophy (achievement) is the same as the normal ending, but the content is slightly different, so go restore the Elden Ring before resting at a Site of Grace if you want to see it.
Once you've obtained the Mending Rune of the Death-Prince, rest at a Site of Grace. Return to Fia and you will find her dead body. You can loot Fia's Armor Set from her corpse.
|D's Questline Will Continue If You Set A Flag
|※ If you give the Twinned Armor Set to D's brother, the ending will be slightly different once you rest at a Site of Grace after defeating Lichdragon Fortissax. Please check the drop-down button for more information.
Once you have obtained the Mending Rune of the Death-Prince, rest at a Site of Grace. Return to Fia's location and you'll see D's brother and Fia's dead body. You can loot Fia's Armor Set from her corpse.
After speaking with D's brother, you can either rest at a Site of Grace or kill D's brother to obtain D's equipment. Aside from the Twinned Armor Set that you gave, you can also get the Inseparable Sword.
Talk To D's Brother To Get The Weapon
There is no need to kill the brother to get D's equipments. You just need to talk to him. He will drop his brother's weapon when defeated but other than that there isn't much merit from defeating him.
Thinking about the possibility for D's Brother to have a story in the future updates of the game, it is wiser to keep him alive.
Fia Questline - What Happens If Fia Holds You?
Baldachin's Blessing Is Obtained
If you embrace Fia at Roundtable Hold, you can obtain a consumable called Baldachin's Blessing. It uses FP to temporarily boost poise, making it harder to be stunned by enemy attacks.

Fia Questline - What To Do If Fia Is Gone
Give The Dagger To D And Move To The Back Room In Roundtable Hold
After arriving at the Altus Plateau, speak with Fia at Roundtable Hold and she will give you the Weathered Dagger. If you give the Weathered Dagger and reload, D and Fia will disappear. You can find them in the back room at Roundtable Hold. See the video above for their location.
After D's Death, She Will Appear At The Deepest Part Of Deeproot Depths
