Nepheli Loux is a Tarnished warrior Elden Ring ordered by her adopted father, Gideon Ofnir, to slay Godrick the Grafted of Stormveil Castle. Nepheli Loux’s questline in Elden Ring is optional but will reward those who complete her tale with the Arsenal Charm Talisman and a legendary Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone. Keep in mind that her story is directly correlated with Kenneth Haight and Gatekeeper Gostoc. In other words, their questlines must be completed in tandem with Nepheli’s; otherwise, players will not be able to progress her narrative. To begin Nepheli Loux’s questline in Elden Ring, Tarnished adventurers must first meet with her in Stormveil.
Completing Nepheli Loux’s Questline In Elden Ring
Nepheli Loux can first be encountered within a small storage chamber southeast of the Secluded Cell in Elden Ring‘s Stormveil Castle. After exhausting her dialogue, she can be summoned to aid in the fight against Godrick. However, this isn’t necessary to progress her tale. Once Godrick, Tarnished can reencounter her in the Roundtable Hold.
Nepheli will reward players with the Arsenal Charm for slaying Godrick and then mention that she will soon leave the hold. Afterward, the warrior will relocate to the Village of the Albinaurics in South Liurnia. After exhausting her dialogue, Tarnished can further progress Nepheli Loux’s questline in Elden Ring by killing the Omenkiller Field Boss in the village.
Next, return to the Roundtable Hold to find her down the stairwell near Smithing Master Hewg. Speak with her and then talk to Gideon about Nepheli. During this time, players can progress Preceptor Seluvis’s questline by giving Nepheli his potion, but this act will permanently lock Tarnished from completing her tale. After exhausting both Nepheli’s and Gideon’s dialogue, players must retrieve the Stormhawk King found in the Chapel of Anticipation via the Four Belfries in Liurnia. Return to Nepheli and show her the Spirit Ashes to have her relocate for a final time to the throne room in Stormveil.
There are a few more steps that players must take to ensure Nepheli Loux’s questline in Elden Ring is complete:
- Exhaust all dialogue with Gatekeeper Gostoc
- Complete Kenneth Haight’s questline in Limgrave
- Defeat Morgott of Leyndell, Royal Capital
Once these prerequisites have been met, Elden Ring fans can complete Nepheli’s story and receive their reward.
Elden Ring is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
