White Mask Varre’s quest in Elden Ring lets you access a high-level area much earlier than you’re supposed to. It’s also the easiest and earliest way to challenge Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (1)Mohg, Lord of Blood , and earn his Great Rune, though getting there is not without its challenges.

Elden Ring: How To Complete Alexander, The Iron Fist Questline

If you're wondering where to find Alexander at certain stages of his quest, we've got you covered.

Varre’s quest is vague, with few hints about what to do next, but if you don’t feel like helping Varre and betraying some maidens, you can still reach Mohgwyn Palace without even speaking to the war surgeon. It takes much longer to do, but on the bright side, you’ll be at a level high enough to withstand the area’s challenges.

Updated March 24, 2023, by Alexis Campbell: Improved formatting to help speed you along on your quest to fighting Varre. Oh, and not sure where to find those pesky White Masks or how to beat them? We added helpful maps to better show you where to go as well as helpful tips on fighting them. Additionally included method of using the Irina questline instead of murdering Hyetta.

How To Start White Mask Varre’s Quest

Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (3)

White Mask Varre’s quest technically begins as soon as you exit the tutorial dungeon and arrive in Limgrave. Varre is the unpleasant man standing outside the elevator who calls you maidenless - whether you want to take that as an insult or an observation is up to you.

The actual quest begins once you’ve obtained your first Great Rune and spoken to Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (4)Enia, the Finger Reader the first time, whether that Rune comes from Godrick, Rennala, or even Radahn.

If you attack Varre, though, he fights back and cannot be assuaged at The Church of Vows. You’ll either have to ignore his quest or kill him, which means you can’t complete his quest.

White Mask Varre’s Location – Rose Church

Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (5)

Varre moves to Rose Church in Liurnia after you get your first Great Rune.

He'll be right outside, and there's no need to enter the church itself unless you wish to fight the Sanguine Noble inside.

You may need to speak to him again in Limgrave first, then rest at a Site of Grace before he moves.

Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (6)

Speak with Varre, and he’ll ask your opinion of the Two Fingers. You must say:

I don’t trust them

After that, he tasks you with invading three other players using Festering Bloody Fingers, which he gives you. You do not need to win these battles to finish Varre's assignment.

Return to Varre after your third invasion, and choose to let him anoint you. This action enters you into Mohg’s service and prompts Varre to give you another task.

As of Patch 1.06, you no longer need to fight other players to complete White Mask Varre's quest. Instead, head to the Writhblood Ruins, which is to the west of the Minor Erdtree on the Altus Plateau.

Here, you'll find a red invasion sign that you can use to fight an NPC called Magnus the Beast Claw. You may use this summon sign to complete this stage of the quest.

A great skill for players with Bleed builds.

How To Soak The Cloth In Maiden’s Blood

Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (8)

Varre tells you to soak the Lord of Blood’s Favor in a maiden’s blood. Since you have no maiden, Varre says you can use any maiden’s blood, and you have three choices:

  • Chapel of Anticipation Dead Maiden
  • Chapel of Inhibition Dead Maiden
  • Irina (Hyetta)

Whatever you choose, travel back to Rose Church with your blood-soaked cloth once you have it, and give it to Varre. He rewards you with the Pureblood Knight’s Medal. Use the item (found in consumables) to reach Mohgwyn Palace and the Mohg fight much earlier than you otherwise would be able to.

Chapel of Anticipation Maiden

Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (9)

To reach the Chapel of Anticipation (the location where you began your Elden Ring adventure), you'll have to complete the following steps:

  1. Travel to the Four Belfries in Western Liurnia.
  2. Take the Imbued Key from the chest at the top of the Belfries.
  3. Use the Imbued Key on the portal first from the top Belfry on the left (the one marked "Precipice of Anticipation").
  4. Use the portal.

When you arrive on the other side, you'll see a boss fog wall. You will have to fight the Grafted Scion you faced at the start of the game. Sweet revenge.

After you defeat the scion, continue up to the church where you began your journey. The dead maiden should be on your left as you enter through the door and found lying on the ground.

Church of Inhibition Maiden

Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (11)

This is a more difficult location to reach. To reach it, you'll need to:

  1. Travel north to the Grand Lift of Dectus.
  2. Go past the Frenzy-Flame Tower*.
  3. Find the Frenzied Flame Village and go through it.
  4. Travel up the hill on the far side of the village toward the visible church.

You can survive the tower by hiding under trees and behind rocks on the way up. When you reach the tower, we recommend clearing it of all enemies. This will turn the tower off and allow you to proceed unhindered.

Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (12)

As you reach the outside of the church, Festering Fingerprint Vyke will invade and fight you. Defeat him, and you can enter the church.

The maiden is inside to the left of the statue of Queen Marika.

Use Irina Or Murder Hyetta

Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (13)

If you have taken on the Irina questline in the Weeping Peninsula, you can kill two birds with one stone - somewhat literally.

Progress far enough, and Irina will eventually be found dead where she can usually be found in the Weeping Peninsula by the Bridge of Sacrifice (south side). You can use her body there to complete Varre's quest for free.

Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (14)

However, if Irina's body has already disappeared, you can instead elect to commit a murder (wouldn't Lord Mohg be pleased?).

You can kill Irina's lookalike, Hyetta, outside the Church of Irith in southern Liurnia once you reach the far side of Stormveil Castle or in any location she can be found thereafter. After she's dead, soak the cloth in her blood.

Killing Hyetta will end her quest prematurely. We don't recommend it unless you don't care at all about receiving the Frenzied Flame Seal. You do not need Hyetta to commune with the Three Fingers and begin the Frenzied Flame ending.

Mohgwyn Dynasty Mausoleum: Where To Find The White Masks

Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (16)

Before you finish Varre’s quest, consider taking a detour and exploring the area around Mohgwyn Palace. If you want the War Surgeon armor set, you will need to defeat two Nameless White Masks in the Lake of Blood.

They can be found:

  • On the righthand (western) shore of the Lake of Blood southeast of the Mausoleum Entrance
  • Under a stone bridge and in front of a broken statue on the far southern edge of the Lake of Blood (near a patrolling bird)
Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (17)

These invaders can be extremely difficult due to their quick attacks andBleed-based builds. If you are having trouble with them, consider these tips:

  1. The White Masks are easily staggered. Use builds that capitalize on it.
  2. The Robustness stat is used to resist Bleeding buildup. Increase your Robustness to resist their blood-based attacks.
  3. This area is meant for players around a minimum Level 80. If you are not at least Level 80, consider leaving and returning later.

If you manage to defeat them, your reward will be the White Mask armour set, boosting your damage after making an enemy Bleed.

You cannot return and defeat the White Masks after defeating Mohg. They will no longer spawn, so you must fight them before Mohg.

Mohgwyn Dynasty Mausoleum: How To Defeat Varre

Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (18)

Once you’re ready to continue (preferably higher than Level 80), enter the mausoleum. You'll have to venture through it all the way to the near end, fighting Sanguine Nobles along the way.

Varre's red invasion sign can be found on the ground justbefore the Dynasty Mausoleum Midpoint Site of Grace on the inside of the mausoleum doorway.

We recommend sitting at this site of grace and then re-entering the mausoleum to prepare for your fight.

Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (19)

After interacting with the sign on the ground, you'll be transported to Varre's world. Run down and take a left into the grave area. If you do not see Varre, wait for him to come to you.

Varre is much like his White Mask counterparts but arguably a bit easier. If you've defeated them, you shouldn't struggle too much with Varre. Just beware of letting him build-up Bleed on you.

Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (20)

After Varre is defeated, you'll return to your world. Varre can then be found on the ground where his sign was present. Speak with him twice, exhausting his dialogue and allowing him to die.

As a reward for all your efforts, you'll receive:

How To Get To Mohgwyn Palace Without Using The Pureblood Knight's Medal

Elden Ring: How To Complete White Mask Varré's Questline (23)

If you killed Varre for his shameless insults about your lack of maidens or just don’t feel like doing his quest, you can still reach Mohgwyn Palace and defeat Mohg, it just takes much longer. To do so, you must:

  1. Gather both Haligtree Medallion halves and use the Grand Lift of Rold.
  2. Enter the Consecrated Snowfield.
  3. Travel through to the Yelough Anix Site of Grace.
  4. Find a nearby hidden waypoint (portal) guarded by an invading Sanguine Noble.
  5. Use the waypoint to be taken to the Palace Approach site of grace on the far southeastern end of the Lake of Blood.

By using this method, Varre will not appear as an invasion target in the mausoleum.
