White-Faced Varre is one of the many NPCs you'll encounter that has a side quest to complete in Elden Ring. For this part of our Elden Ring guide, you'll find details of where to find this NPC, how to begin their questline and the outcomes of your choices.

White-Faced Varre in Limgrave

White-Faced Varre is one of the very first NPCs you'll encounter when you begin your journey across the Lands Between in Elden Ring. At The First Step Site of Grace, White-Faced Varre will be there in his white mask, telling you to head to Stormveil Castle.

White-Faced Varre in Liurnia of the Lakes

When you reach Liurnia of the Lakes, if you travel back to The First Step Site of Grace, White-Faced Varre will have disappeared and a figure of him will be there instead. You'll now be able to find him at the Rose Church in Liurnia of the Lakes, due west of the Fallen Ruins of the Lake Site of Grace.

Speak to him and he'll ask you what you think of the Two Fingers. You can either say that you trust them or that you are unsure about them.

If you say you trust them, the conversation will end here. You can speak to him again and change your mind, however, saying you're unsure about them. This will progress White-Faced Varre's questline.

He will gift you with 5 Bloody Festing Fingers and tell you to use them. You'll need to use them three times before you can return to Varre, and he'll have more to say.

Using the Bloody Festering Fingers

To progress Varre's questline, you will need to perform at least three invasions. You can do this by either opting to play online and use a Bloody Festering Finger to invade other players (note that you do not have to defeat them; if you're having a rough go of it, simply invading and then jumping off a cliff counts towards your goal).

As of patch 1.06, you also now have the option to invade an NPC called Magnus the Beast Claw, whose sign may be found at the Writheblood Ruins, just north of the Mirage Rise on the Altus Plateau. If you choose the NPC route, you only need to defeat this one to progress the quest (versus three player characters).

Speaking to White-Faced Varre After Using the Fingers

Return to Varre and speak to him. During the conversation, he'll give you two options: to be anointed or to refuse. If you choose to be anointed, he'll present you with the Lord of Blood's Favor. Your final trial for him will be to soak the cloth with a Maiden's Blood. If you refuse, you will have the option again to choose anointment, as it is the only way to progress his quest.

Varre will say that normally, you are supposed to kill your own maiden and recount the wisdom of the Two Fingers, but as you have no maiden, any maiden will do.

Acquiring the Maiden's Blood

At this point, there are several ways to acquire Maiden's Blood. Which of these is more convenient to access is dependent on which parts of the map you have unlocked, as well as how far along you've progressed certain NPC's questlines.

At the Chapel of Anticipation

You can acquire Maiden blood by going back to the Chapel of Anticipation, the place where you began your journey in Elden Ring. To get here, you'll need to use one of the teleporters at The Four Belfries. The third Imp Statue Seal unlocks the teleporter to The Chapel of Anticipation. You'll need an Imbued Sword Key, which you can find the location of on our Stonesword Key Locations page.

Kill the Grafted Scion here and you'll unlock all of the Chapel of Anticipation. You'll want to head over to the rope bridge to the chapel, and you'll find the Maiden here that you will have encountered when you began the game. Approach her and select the option to soak the cloth in her blood.

Killing Irina in Limgrave

If you have not yet progressed Irina's questline, head to the Weeping Peninsula, just past the Bridge of Sacrifice, to find her seated near the road. Kill her to reveal the option to soak the cloth in her blood. Note that doing this will lock you out of completing Edgar's quest, although he will still invade you regardless at the Revenger's Shack.

At the Church of Inhibition

Your third option for Maiden's Blood is at the Church of Inhibition in northern Liurnia. Head just north of the Frenzied Flame Village and defeat the invading NPC named Festering Finger Vyke. Head into the church, activate the Site of Grace, then look just to the left of it to see the dead Maiden.

Once you have collected Maiden's Blood using one of these methods, return to Varre at the Rose Church. During the conversation, you'll be asked to offer your finger. Doing so gives you the Bloody Finger item. Speak to him again and you'll receive a Pureblood Knight's Medal. This gives you to power to give you an audience with Luminary Mohg.

In Mohgwyn's Palace

At this point, you can choose to go to Mohgwyn's Palace using the Pureblood Knight's Medal. Make your way through these ruins until you reach the Mausoleum Dynasty Midpoint Site of Grace. Activate it and rest at it to reveal a red summon sign on the ground. Choosing to activate this will allow Varre to invade your world. As this is the only way to end his quest, take him on in battle.

Upon defeating him, reload the area and return to the location of the invasion sign to find him wounded on the ground. Speak to him here and exhaust his dialogue until he expires, at which point he will drop the Festering Bloody Fingers and Varre's Bouquet items to put an end to his quest.
