Elden Ring D’s Brother: Location & Questline

D's Brother can be found after defeating Starscourge Radahn and is actually part of two different questlines in Elden Ring.

Elden Ring’s D’s Brother is actually an NPC, like Boc, that we come across quite late in the game and he is part of two different questlines additionally. This NPC won’t respond to us if we haven’t followed D, Hunter of the Dead’s questline before.

Key Takeaways
  • D’s Brother is located in Nokron which is unlocked for exploration after players beat Starscourge Radahn.
  • After beating Radahn, make your way to East Limgrave to find the entrance of Nokron, Eternal City.
  • Defeat the Mimic Tear boss fight to reach D’s Brother who is sitting outside the Valiant Gargoyles boss fight in Nokron.
  • D’s Brother will not respond to the player’s interactions unless they give him D’s Armor Set which can be obtained at the end of D, Hunter Of The Dead’s questline.
  • If players kill D and then give his armor to his brother then the brother will become hostile and start attacking the player.
  • If the armor is given after D dies on his own, then his brother can be summoned for Valiant Gargoyles’ boss fight.
  • At the end of his questline, D’s brother will kill Fia in Deeproot Depths once you obtain the mending rune of death from her.
  • Once D’s Brother kills Fia, you can reload the area to obtain his armor and weapon which will also end the NPC questline there.
Important: Make sure that you’ve beaten Starscourge Radahn as you cannot reach D’s Brother before beating him.

In order to reach D’s Brother, we must first make our way to Nokron which is unlocked once we beat Starscoruge Radahn in Elden Ring

  • Once we beat Radahn, a cutscene plays which shows us a meteor striking an area in Limgrave.
  • That location is actually near Fort Haight in East Limgrave and we will easily spot the hole created by the falling star here.
  • We will need to descend down in order to reach Nokron.

  • First, we must beat the Mimic Tear boss fight which is the first hurdle in our path.
  • We just to unequip our weapons before entering the boss fight to make the challenge easier for ourselves.

D’s Brother will not respond to our interactions if you don’t have the Armor Set of D, Hunter Of The Dead. D’s armor set is obtained at the end of his questline when he dies or we can get the set by killing him early on in Elden Ring.

  • We need to follow Fia’s questline as well because both of these will go hand in hand.

There are two different outcomes to giving D’s armor to his brother.

  • If we kill D, Hunter Of The Dead, and then give the armor set to his brother, then the brother will become hostile and start attacking us.
  • However, if D dies on his own at the end of the questline and we give the armor at that point, the questline of his brother can be continued.
  • At this point, D’s brother can be summoned for the Valiant Gargoyles boss fight as well.
  • At the end of Fia’s questline in Deeproot Depths when we receive the mending rune of death, D’s brother will attack and kill Fia at which point his questline will end.
  • We can reload the area to receive D’s armor set and the Inseparable Sword.
