If you've just started the game, the fastest way to get a Deathroot is by defeating the boss Tibia Mariner in Summonwater Village, north of Limgrave. It's a relatively weak boss that can be defeated with beginner equipment so it's the easiest way of getting a Deathroot.

2. Use The Portal (Gateway) To Meet Gurranq

After giving Gurranq a Deathroot, you will receive the Beast Eye. This item will notify you if you're near a Deathroot. Use this to make it easier to collect Deathroots in different locations.

Deathroots Can Be Collected Around The Map

There are nine Deathroots in total, but it does not matter which one you give to Gurranq. Some are in locations that are inaccessible until you progress further through the story. It's recommended to get them from where you can and collecting your reward.

4. Rest At The Site Of Grace & Gurranq Will Become Hostile

Rest At The Site Of Grace & Gurranq Will Become Hostile
Click to Enlarge

Give Gurranq a total of 4 or more Deathroot, then rest at the Site of Grace. Gurranq will become hostile and attack you. Attack back and he will eventually stop. Be careful since his attacks are quite powerful.

Recommended To Attack Him Outside The Temple

Gurranq cannot fit through the temple's entrance. It's recommended to fight him from outside the entrance with long-range attacks, including Skills and projectiles such as Kukri.

▲ Note that even if you're outside the temple, you can get hit by his long-range attacks (Claw's Slash or Roar). Dealing around 1200 damage or so will cause him to eventually stop attacking.

5. Continue The Story Until You Reach The Mountaintop Of The Giants

You can only get up to 4 Deathroot between Limgrave and Liurnia Of The Lakes. In order to get the rest of the 5 Deathroots, you will need to progress through Altus Plateau and the Mountaintops of the Giants. If you haven't progressed yet, continue on with the main story line.

If you give Gurranq a total of four or more Deathroot, he will say "Strange, there's something else. But the death, yet quenches. Bring more.". After this bit of dialogue, if you rest at a Site of Grace, Gurranq will become an enemy.

Will Also Turn Hostile When Attacked

Gurranq will also become hostile when attacked, similar to the other NPCs in the game. However, once you rest at a Site of Grace, he will not be hostile anymore and you can go back to giving him Deathroot and getting the rewards.

Gurranq - How To Stop Being Hostile

Deal A Certain Amount Of Damage To Gurranq

The only way to return Gurranq to being a friendly NPC is by attacking and getting his health to a certain point. The amount of damage required is 1200. Since Gurranq can deal a ton of damage himself, it's recommended to attack him from a distance outside of the temple if you don't want to face him head on.

Hostility Cannot Be Removed In the Church Of Atonement

Hostility Cannot Be Removed In the Church Of Atonement
Click to Enlarge

Unlike other NPCs wherein you can remove their hostility with the Church of Atonement, Gurranq is not affected by it when it's used. The only way to remove thier hostility is by damaging him enough when he does become an enemy.

Gurranq Could Also Be Killed

Gurranq is quite a powerful enemy, but he can be killed. When defeated, he will drop an Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone. However, since this is also a drop from giving Gurranq all 9 Deathroot, it's better to not kill him to get all the rewards.

Deathroot Locations List

Total Of 9 Deathroots

Deathroot can be obtained in multiple locations, including in Limgrave and the Mountaintops of the Giants. There are two ways of getting it: Either by defeating Tibia Mariner bosses or by completing dungeons.
