Gurranq Quest Guide & Tips
1. Collect A Deathroot And The Talk To D
|【Roundtable Hold Not Yet Available】
- Appears near Summonwater Village
North of Limgrave (Near Summonwater Villager)
|【Roundtable Hold Is Available】
- Appears in the Roundtable Hold
Sitting in a chair
Once you collect a Deathroot, you can talk to D. Show him the Deathroot and ask him for an introduction to Gurranq. Note that D's location changes depending on whether you have the Roundtable Hold unlocked or not.
Quickest Way To Get A Deathroot Is By Defeating The Tibia Mariner
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 talking to D, head to the Portal (Gateway) shown in the image above. Use that Portal to get to location where Gurranq is. Once there, open the large doors and enter the building. Talk to Gurranq and give him the Deathroot to get an item in exchange.
3. Collect Deathroots From Different Locations
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
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.Altus Plateau - Map & How To Get To Location
Dectus Medallion (Left/Right) Is Required To Access Altus Plateau
The Altus Plateau can only be reached by using the Grand Lift of Dectus at the northernmost part of Liurnia. To be able to use the Lift, you will need the Dectus Medallion (Left/Right).
Use The Secret Medallion To Access The Consecrated Snowfields
The Secret Medallion (Left) can be found in Castle Sol in the Mountaintops of the Giants while the Secret Medallion (Right) in the Village of the Albinaurics in Liurnia of the Lakes.
6. Collect The Last Deathroots & Give Them To Gurranq
By handing over the 5 remaining Deathroot, he tells you there is nothing more you can do. He will then disappear and Gurranq's Quest Line will end.
Gurranq As A Boss/Enemy
What To Do To Make Gurranq Hostile?
Becomes Hostile After You Give 4 Deathroots
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
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.

|Items Inside The Dungeon
|Weapon: Assassin's Crimson Dagger
(Found inside a treasure chest after defeating the boss there)
The Site of Grace: Saintsbridge is the closest to the Deathtouched Catacombs. The dungeon is fairly short and you can find the treasure chest that contains the Deathroot in the boss room inside a locked room. Use a lever on the second floor to open the door that will lead you to it.
