Meet Irina

Based on my gameplay experience, In Irina’s questline on the Weeping Peninsula in Elden Ring, it is essential to start her quest before beginning Hyetta’s quest.

Here are the key steps I would like to mention:

  1. Head south after clearing the heavily guarded bridge on the Weeping Peninsula.
  2. Find Lady Irina standing on the main road and talk to her to receive her letter.
  3. Irina requests you to carry a letter to her father, Edgar, explaining the invasion of Castle Morne by servants turned into beasts.
  4. Decide whether to send the letter to Castle Morne or disregard the mission.
  5. Alternatively, you can travel back north to Limgrave to attack the fortress and defeat Godrick.
  6. If you choose to deliver the letter to Castle Morne, defeat the boss of Castle Morne and talk to Edgar.
  7. Confirm Irina’s death when Edgar arrives at her location.
  8. Ensure that Hyetta’s quest has not already begun before killing Irina if you wish to continue and complete Hyetta’s quest.

Lake-Facing Cliffs

In Elden Ring, Hyetta and Irina share a connection, evident through shared traits like blindness and appearance.

These are the steps I took to unveil this connection :

  1. Hyetta’s questline begins after defeating Godrick the Grafted and clearing Stormveil Castle.
  2. Progress to the lower rooms beyond Godrick’s throne.
  3. Discover a ghost in the lower rooms seeking grapes for an unknown woman.
  4. Speak with the ghost and obtain four Shabriri Grapes.
  5. Rest at the Place of Grace near the Lake-Facing Cliffs.
  6. After resting, Hyetta appears on the cliff.
  7. Give Hyetta a Shabriri Grape to complete the interaction.
  8. Get the “As You Wish” emote as a quest reward.
  9. After the conversation, Hyetta follows your lead to the next destination.

This questline unravels the intertwined stories of Hyetta and Irina in Elden Ring.

Petrified Church Ruins

Hyetta will relocate to the Petrified Church ruins on the side closest to the beach, at the extreme south. At the bottom of the stairway, she will be leaning against the stone foundation and gazing toward the marsh.

I suggest you to investigate the area of the ruins on the northeastern side that is being monitored by several guards and dogs before chatting with her. In this area of the ruins, there is a wooden floorboard space that you can demolish. You may find the Two Finger Talisman and another Shabriri Grape in the cellar below by doing this, which will also expose a hidden entrance.

Bring your second Shabriri Grape to Hyetta, who will be incredibly appreciative of your help. In my opinion, you must exhaust her conversation but hold off on following. A third grape must be located.

Killing Edgar

Elden Ring: Shabriri Grapes

You must assassinate Irina’s father, Edgar, in order to obtain your third and last Shabriri Grape. Although, in my opinion, it is possible to kill Edgar before seeing his spawn point at the Revenger’s Shack in West Liurnia, choosing that route puts you at risk for a number of quest-breaking issues. The third Shabriri Grape does not drop with Edgar when he is killed early, which is the most frequent problem.

These are the steps I took to obtain the third Shabriri Gape:

  1. You must finish Castle Morne, including everything after Edgar discovers Irina’s corpse and all of his dialogue, in order to resolve this problem.
  2. The Revenger’s Shack is located in West Liurnia, where you must go.
  3. You’ll be invaded by Edgar here.
  4. You must fight him and take his weapon in order to obtain this third Shabriri Gape.

Gate Down Bridge

To reach Hyetta, who is waiting for you next to the Gate Town Site of Grace, take the Shabriri Grape. She ought to be just north of a rock face. Tell her your target and be honest with her. Let her know that Shabriri Grapes are really human eyes.

Once you leave, you can hear her retching and see how disgusting she is. Following that, you must go back to the Gate Town Site of Grace, take a brief break, and then go back to Hyetta to finish her talk. As per my experience, she will admit that she thinks she will evolve into a Finger Maiden. Hyetta will then continue on to the following phase of her quest.

Vyke’s Fingerprint Grape

Follow the steps I have mentioned below:

  1. The last grape in Hyetta’s questline is very crucial in Elden Ring.
  2. It needs someone whose eyes have been affected by the Frenzied Flame.
  3. You must locate and eliminate an intruder by the name of Festering Fingerprint Vyke in order to obtain this grape.
  4. He is located in Liurnia’s northeastern district, at the Church of Inhibition.
  5. You may obtain Vyke’s Fingerprint Grape, a Furlcalling Finger Remedy, and his one-of-a-kind weapon, the Vyke’s War Spear, by beating him.

You must use caution when fighting Vyke since he has the ability to inflict Madness. Here, playing aggressively to prevent him from having time to charge his assaults is a winning tactic. From my perspective, To make his fight as quick and painless as possible, you’ll need to stay close to him and skillfully avoid his spear assaults because he does have one healing flask.

Bellum Church

In Elden Ring, go to the Bellum Church after obtaining the last grape from Festering Fingerprint Vyke in order to complete Hyetta’s questline. Hyetta is waiting for you inside, close to a pillar.

  1. You will have to fight a Night’s Cavalry to get to Hyetta if you are visiting Belum Church for the first time at night.
  2. You can offer her the Fingerprint Grape you just grabbed from the Festering Fingerprint Vyke when she asks for one once you reach her.
  3. She will reply in pleasure, intoxicated by the taste of the delicate “grape,”
  4. Then, she will ask you to accompany her on her voyage to becoming a pure Finger Maiden and crafting the words of the wailing people in her thoughts.
  5. She will go on to her fourth and last place once you leave.

This will be the tipping moment. You must stop here if you don’t want any forced ending.

Secret Beneath Leyndell

Bodies of former merchants in Secret Beneath Leyndell

To complete Hyetta’s questline in Elden Ring, venture into the intricate sewers of the Subterranean Shunning Grounds. You can tackle this quest before or after the Cardinal Sin, and it won’t block your progress.

Here’s a step-by-step guide from my experience:

  1. Enter the intricate sewers of the Subterranean Shunning Grounds.
  2. Face Mohg, the Omen, and beat him.
  3. Find a chest near an altar after the battle, and open it to reveal a hidden passageway.
  4. Hit the altar behind the chest to expose a hidden passageway.
  5. Enter the wider portion of the Cathedral of Forsaken through the revealed corridor.
  6. Discover the bodies of former merchants affected by the Frenzied Flame.
  7. Explore the passageways and face Platforming, Elden Ring’s most challenging boss from my experience.
  8. Execute precise jumps between stone platforms.

Meet Hyetta

As you reach down, Hyetta will be standing close by. She will instruct you to strip off all of your clothing and enter the room behind her. Follow Hyetta’s advice. You can interact with the door without taking off your weapons or armor. The Three Fingers will be waiting for you inside.

  • You can go back and talk to Hyetta after she burns you in the subsequent cutscene.
  • She will beg you to give her the Flame’s blessing. Hyetta will be able to understand the Three Fingers’ messages if she does this before being instantly burned alive.
  • You will receive a Frenzied Flame Seal and five Frenzy Flame Stones as payment for killing Hyetta, which puts a stop to her quest line.
  • After that, if you decide to come back here, you’ll find Hyetta gone, replaced by a heap of blazing ashes.

Important: You will be compelled to complete the game through to this ending if you opt to choose this path. By utilizing Miquella’s Needle to manage the condition left to you by the Three Fingers, you can only access the other endings.

Frenzied Flame Ending

After completing the Hyetta questline, you can proceed to complete Elden Ring. After speaking with Melina and eliminating the final two bosses, you will learn the outcome of your decision to embark on this quest.

Melina will leave you if you sit at a Site of Grace after finishing Hyetta’s quest because she believes you are no longer suitable for the role she had in mind for you. I encounter that she also implore you not to inherit the flame when you visit the Frenzied Flame Proscription Site of Grace.

  • If you complete this quest, you will no longer be able to sin the Cardinal Sin alongside Melina.
  • After that, you must continue playing to finish the game. At that time, you will only have one choice.
  • You will see a cutscene in which you take on the role of the Lord of Chaos and destroy the Erdtree, The Lands Between, and everything connected to them.

Undoing Hyetta’s Questline

To reverse the Frenzied Flame’s touch and free yourself from the forced ending, follow these steps I mentioned below:

  1. Finish Millicent’s quest line in its entirety.
  2. Progress in Millicent’s quest until you obtain Perfected Miquella’s Needle.
  3. Players often suggest either abandoning Hyetta’s quest before completing it or starting it immediately after finishing Millicent’s quest and obtaining the needle.
  4. Travel to Crumbling Farum Azula.
  5. Locate Dragonlord Placidusax in his arena, lost in time within Crumbling Farum Azula, and kill him.
  6. After defeating Placidusax, use Perfected Miquella’s Needle only when standing in his arena.
  7. Avoid attempting to use the needle while avoiding Placidusax. It is recommended to focus on one task at a time.
  8. Return to The Three Fingers’ sanctuary after using the needle.
  9. Check that The Three Fingers’ sanctuary is empty.
  10. Confirm that the needle has been consumed and you no longer possess it.

The maiden described in the White Mask Varré’s questline is Hyetta. It is not required to kill a maiden, but you can do so to cover the Lord of Blood’s Favor in blood. That concludes the definitive guide on how to complete Hyetta Questline.
