Elden Ring Irina quest guide: How to deliver the Castle Morne letter

You deliver letters. We feed Maiden candidates eyeballs. We are not the same.

Update: We've streamlined the information on this page and added some additional tips so that you have no trouble completing Irina's quest.

Irina’s quest in Elden Ring is a short one, but once you've delivered Irina's letter, you'll eventually stumble onto another quest, one that takes you far beneath the earth and unlocks an alternate ending.

After traveling to Liurnia to face her father, you'll wind up with a second Finger Maiden and, eventually, an audience with the Three Fingers of Frenzied Flame. Note some spoilers follow for how a few NPC plots unfold below, but here's how to complete Irina's quest in Elden Ring.

How to start Irina’s quest in Elden Ring

Irina is sitting by the road just south of the Bridge of Sacrifice Site of Grace. This is the one you first encounter as you cross onto The Weeping Peninsula.

Speak with her here, and agree to take her letter to Edgar in Castle Morne. Depending on your current level and loadout, you may want to do this later. Castle Morne’s enemies have an easy time wearing defenses down, even more so when they gang up on you (which they frequently do). That said, you don't need to level up too much, and we recommend being between Level 20-30 when heading to Castle Morne.

After arriving and exiting the castle lift, sneak around the burning rubble pile and dispatch the rotting dogs as you go. Unless you attack the Misbegotten – the “menials” Irina speaks of – around the bonfire, they won’t notice you. Sneak to the far end of the area, avoid the Mad Pumpkin Head, turn right, and climb the ladder.

Two flying Misbegotten and a walking one bar your path. If you have bows or ranged magic, use those to deal with the flying Misbegotten. If not, get close and use a jump attack to ground them.

At the other end of the walkway, turn left and jump down onto the scaffolding. You can deal with the mob of fighting soldiers and Misbegotten or just dash through them. Either way, turn right at the end of the ramparts, climb the stairs, and you’ll see Edgar sitting down further up.

Speak with Edgar twice to get the option of handing the letter over. He then won’t leave until you defeat the Castle Morne boss, Leonine Misbegotten, as he cannot allow the Grafted Blade Greatsword. Once you’ve done that, travel back to Irina.

You'll find that she’s been murdered, and Edgar vows revenge when you speak to him. Irina’s quest ends here, but you can pick up Edgar’s quest next.

How to find Irina's father in Elden Ring

Travel to the Revenger’s Shack in western Liurnia, where you’ll encounter Edgar the Revenger, an invading NPC. Defeat him to obtain a halberd and a Shabiri Grape.

You can give the grape to Hyetta near the Lake-Facing Cliffs Site of Grace by Church of Irith to start her quest. This quest is a lengthy one that ties in with your decisions if you follow the game's Chaos route, where Hyetta replaces Melina as your Maiden.

Normally, you’re left Maidenless if you meet with the Three Fingers and don't help Hyetta, though it doesn't seem like completing Hyetta's quest makes much difference outside of giving you some extra lore.

Hyetta wanders around Liurnia and has a request for an item each time. You'll find the grapes within a short walk of her location:

  1. First Location, Church of Irith - Shabiri Grape
  2. Second Location, Purified Ruins - Shabiri Grape
  3. Third Location, Gate Town Bridge - Shabiri Grape
  4. Fourth Location, Bellum Church - Fingerprint Grape (an enemy drop from Festering Fingerprint Vyke near the Church of Inhibition)

You’ll next encounter her in Leyndell near the Frenzied Flame Proscription. If you accept the Three Fingers’ flame, Melina leaves, and Hyetta will assume the role of your guide.
