White Mask Varré, who is famed for pointing out that you have landed in the Lands Between “maidenless,” is the first NPC you see in Elden Ring. Even though it may be tempting to end Varré’s life right away, doing so prevents you from finishing his plot, which is very worthwhile, as you’ll discover in our guide on finishing Varré’s side quest. In addition to giving you access to a hidden optional section and a taste of PvP, finishing Varré’s story could also perhaps reward you with a new Great Rune.
And we assure you that you will exact justice for your “maidenless” remark.
Elden Ring is an open-world game, but perhaps not in the sense that you might initially imagine.
It’s not about following a map that’s overrun with activity indicators or waypoints that direct you to far-off places. It’s about pure, unrestricted inquiry instead. Think about how earlier Souls games handled elements like character development and storyline by taking a hands-off, player-trusting approach. When you apply that theory to an open-ended setting, you have the framework for a game that, in the end, is kind of a masterpiece.
The game is called Elden Ring after a key story device, but I started calling it Endless Ring. The early game relentlessly hands you a succession of critical items, most importantly your horse, but then it frees you. Explore in whatever arbitrary direction you like. What caught your attention? Make an effort to get there. Follow your desires. Elden Ring is unconcerned.
Every time a game receives a perfect rating, the question of whether the game is truly flawless or whether perfect games even exist is raised. One player’s view of what merits that score may differ from another’s, but I don’t think it indicates a game without of problems. Elden Ring has some flaws, as this review explains.
But in the end, what counts is that Elden Ring achieves practically all of its objectives. This game is making a message both mechanically and thematically: that you can defy industry trends while following them.
Lord of Bloods Favor Elden Ring
Many mysterious and oddball NPCs can be found wandering the Lands Between in Elden Ring. weird because the first NPC you meet will berate you for being a maidenless man. However, when Varre asks you to collect virgin blood for a quest, see how the tables turn. To the white-faced Varre, I mean no offence, but where are your maidens now? You can get maiden blood by killing a girl and saturating a handkerchief with her blood. Now that you know where to look for maiden blood in Elden Ring, read on.
Two Steps to the Lord of Bloods Favor Elden Ring
2. Mohg, Lord of Blood
Mohg, Lord of Blood, who should not be confused with Mohg, the Omen, is the founder of the Mohgwyn dynasty and the present monarch of Mohgwyn Palace. One of the underground sites that can only be reached far later in the game is this one.
Mohg is not a pushover because he is an end-game boss. After clearing a lake of blood and moving through the caves beneath Mohgwyn Palace, you can find this manipulator of blood and mastermind of Blood Magic above the palace. A Site of Grace is located close to a platform that, when raised, leads to the Mohg fighting arena at the top of a Shrine if you reach the finish.
Mohg appears from a pool of blood that his half-brother Miquella left behind and attacks the player with a variety of Blood magic spells. In order to keep the Tarnished from knowing what to expect next, he alternates it with physical blows from his staff. Additionally, he covers his sword in Bloodflame, which he uses to ignite and explode after the cut. Players are haemorrhaged three times in fast succession during their second phase, necessitating speedy healing to get through the burst.
So how do the Tarnished first arrive at Mohgwyn Palace?
1. Getting to Mohgwyn Palace
To reach Mohgwyn Palace, there are two options. In the game, one of them is accessible much earlier on:
Players can teleport to the lake of blood entrance by using a waygate in the western portion of the Consecrated Snowfield.
until White-Faced Varre reaches Rose Church, follow Varre’s quest. He will then offer players a talisman that will teleport them to Mohgwyn Palace’s entryway after three successful assaults, skipping the lake of blood entirely.
The latter of these two approaches can be used rather early on in the game—exactly after arriving in Liurnia of the Lakes. However, traveling to Mohgwyn Palace at that point in the game is not advised for less experienced players due to the intense difficulty that an end-game area offers.
Editor’s Final Thoughts:
Whichever approach the player choose, they must go back to White-faced Varre to obtain the Pureblood Knight Medal that will let them to enter the Mohgwyn Dynasty. To complete the questline, the player must attack this region of Varre.
