Blaidd is an NPC in Elden Ring. Blaidd is a half man, half wolf, found howling in the Mistwood Ruins. He's the trusted companion and guardian of Ranni the Witch. Blaidd can be also be found as an NPC Summon, if conditions are right.


 Kalé sent you, did he? Ever the bloody busybody. Hmm. Maybe to him, you don't seem so strange.
The name's Blaidd. I'm looking for a man who goes by "Darriwil."

Blaidd Location in Elden Ring

Blaidd can be found initially at Mistwood Ruins, but must be found as part of his quest. 

  • This NPC moves
  • This NPC can be fought
  • Can become hostile if the player kills ANY of the large rune bears before meeting him. (It's unclear why this makes him hostile, but several reports have shown him becoming hostile for no apparent reason, and the only link seems to be a rune bear being slain at ANY location prior to hearing his howling.)
  • Should Blaidd be hostile at the first encounter (maybe a Bug) you can visit the Church of Vows. After Atonement, Blaidd will reset. All Questlines involving Blaidd can be completed successfully.
  • NPC Summon: Speak to Blaidd first before the Bloodhound Knight Darriwil fight to use him as a Summon
    Can also be summoned against Starscourge Radahn, along with many other festival participants.


Blaidd Questline: How to complete Blaidd's Quest

Initial Meeting

  • Inside Mistwood, the player can occasionally hear a wolf howl. At this point, they can ask Merchant Kale about the howling. The merchant will teach the player the Finger Snap gesture.
  • Blaidd can be seen resting on the tallest point in the Mistwood Ruins, and will jump down after the player uses the gesture while standing below him. Blaidd will tell the player he is searching for a man who goes by the name "Darriwil". [Map Link]

Forlorn Hound Evergaol

  • Darriwil can be fought at the Forlorn Hound Evergaol, where Blaidd will become available as a summon. Speak to Blaidd again after the fight.
    • Talking to Blaidd once will yield a Somber Smithing stone [2]. Talk to him a second time and he will mention a blacksmith along the Road to the Manor in Liurnia, and instruct the player to say that "Blaidd sent them". Doing this will unlock the Carian Filigreed Crest in the blacksmith's shop.
      • If you have progressed Ranni's questline to the point where Blaidd has moved to Siofra river or further without talking to Blaidd, he will not give you the Somber stone.
    • If the Evergaol fight was completed before meeting Blaidd, he will still be available to speak to here after the player talks to him in the Mistwood Ruins. [Map Link]

Ranni's Questline

  • After meeting Ranni the Witch in Liurnia and taking on her quest, the player will need to meet Blaidd at Siofra River, which can be entered by taking the lift at the Siofra River Well in Mistwood. Blaidd will ask you to speak to Preceptor Seluvis, who in turn directs you to Sorceress Sellen. [Map Link]
    • Blaidd will be located east of the Siofra River Bank site of grace, standing along the edge of a cliff nearby a Spirit Spring. [Map Link]
  • After speaking to Sellen, report back to Blaidd at Siofra River. He will request that you meet him at Redmane Castle to participate in a festival. [Map Link]
  • Alternatively, you can clear Redmane Castle before triggering the Radahn Festival and ask Jerren about Iji. Iji will then tell you about the festival when asked about Jerren, letting you pass this information to Blaidd at Siofra River.
  • Blaidd can be found alongside other NPCs in the inner courtyard of Redmane Castle (where there is normally a boss fight when the festival event is not active). After speaking to the herald, Jerren, the festival will begin. Blaidd will be available as a summon during the fight in the Wailing Dunes against Starscourge Radahn.
    • If the festival is triggered by using the Grand Lift of Dectus instead of through Ranni's questline, Blaidd will still show up at Redmane Castle. All prior interactions with Blaidd, as well as the initial portion of Ranni's questline, will be skipped. [Map Link]
    • If Blaidd is currently attending the festival and Radahn is not defeated, he will still be there even if you obtained and returned the Fingerslayer Blade to Ranni using glitches.
  • Once the festival is completed, the player can find Blaidd trapped inside the Forlorn Hound Evergaol. You can speak with Iji before or after this part of the questline for some additional dialogue.
    • Optional. Blaidd still shows up at Ranni's Rise regardless of if the player did this part of the questline.
    • After defeating Radahn, the player can talk to Blaidd next to Starscourge Radahn site of grace in Wailing Dunes.
    • Players who wanted to interact with Blaidd should note that leaving Wailing Dunes after Radahn's defeat is the trigger for Iji imprisoning Blaidd regardless of prior interaction or progress. He will remain in the evergaol until released or Ranni's quest is progressed to the end. 
    • Additionally, if Radahn is killed before the first stages of Ranni's quest, Blaidd will be notably absent when you are otherwise tasked with speaking to her three servants, the other two being Iji and Seluvis, at the base of Ranni's Rise. 
  • After completing Ranni's questline, return to Ranni's Rise where you may find Blaidd outside at the entrance, hostile. Defeating him will grant you his greatsword and his armor set (except the helm, which can be found near Seluvis's Rise).
    • Note that you need FULL questline completion, which means after you get the Dark Moon Greatsword and not only up to when you give Ranni the Fingerslayer Blade.
    • Other factors effect whether Blaidd appears, which are not obvious will lead to him appearing. You can progress through Ranni's questline entirely without him appearing hostile, however he may appear later contigent on these unknown other factors.
      • Defeating Astel may be the trigger that causes him to appear at Ranni's Rise hostile, also having obtained the Dark Moon Ring may also be a factor.
    • Can be safely dispatched by using Poison Mist while sneaking behind him. Since it deals no damage it will not cause him to fight back unless he detects you otherwise. The poison status can be reapplied when it wears off, just note that it will take longer each time to reapply due to the way status effects are harder to inflict sequentially on the same enemy.
      • If he does detect you, you can just retreat inside the tower and ride the elevator. He will eventually reset after some time.
    • Another way to safely dispatch him is to use Giantsflame Take Thee from the ledge atop Ranni's Rise. Blaidd has no way to reach you and simply paces out front while doing a poor job of dodging the fireballs.

Elden Ring Blaidd Combat information

  • Health: 1506-3175 HP
  • Unlike most NPCs, Blaidd can't be staggered like regular player in PvP, but can be poise-broken and riposted afterwards. Poise: 80
  • Parryable: Yes. It takes 2 parries to break his stance. Can be riposted afterwards
  • Deals Standard and Magic damage. Can inflict Frostbite.
  • Uses Royal Greatsword and it's unique skill Wolf's Assault


The absorption numbers are the % of your damage that gets blocked. For example, if an absorption is 60, 40% of that damage by that type will go through and 60% is absorbed. Bigger number = less damage. An absorption of 100 means no damage goes through, and a resistance of -100 mean the enemy takes 2x damage from that source. 0 means damage goes pretty much as is.


The resistance numbers are the buildup amount to trigger it. For example, if a resistance is 100 you must deal 100 points of whatever aux buildup to trigger it. Note that these go down over time, and increase each time the effect procs.

Dialogue in Elden Ring: Blaidd

§Introduction at Mistwood Ruins

  • Who goes there? Kalé sent you, did he? Ever the bloody busybody. Hmm. Maybe to him, you don't seem so strange. The name's Blaidd. I'm looking for a man who goes by "Darriwil." He fled somewhere nearby. Or so I've heard. Come tell me if you find him before I do. I can offer you ample reward. 
  • Darriwil is nothing but a traitor. And in need of a fitting end to his tale. 

Attacking him at Mistwood Ruins

  • Oh? Fine. Time to douse your little flame.
  • (On player kill) Hmph. Pathetic little man.

When killed at Mistwood Ruins

  • You're... you're strong of arm. But ask yourself... What harm can be done... to a shadow?

As a summon in the Forlorn Hound Evergaol

  • Darriwil… Rotting in a cell is no true justice. No, this is where it ends for you.

After defeating Darriwil

  • <sigh> ...Right. There you are. Had to work for it, but it's done. Don't say I'm not a man of my word. Here's your prize. <presents somber smithing stone>
  • Oh yes, I should say - If you venture north to Raya Lucaria, and come across a venerable blacksmith who's a little on the large side… Tell him I sent you. And he'll be sure to treat you right. I owe you one, I reckon.
  • That's enough chit-chat for now. It's time we parted ways.

In spectral form, after meeting Ranni at Ranni’s Rise

  • Ahh, long time, friend. Blaidd, if you’ve forgotten. Glad to have you in the service of mistress Ranni. 
  • Well. Getting right to business… I’m still in Limgrave. The eternal city of Nokron lies somewhere at the bottom of this land. I’m planning to go below through the well in the Mistwood. See if I can’t find the road to Nokron from there…

Upon meeting him at Siofra River

  • Ah, good to see you. Apologies mate, but I don’t have much to report. I can see bloody Nokron, right above me, but I’m absolutely stumped. I’ve tried all the gateways, to no avail… Perhaps it’s time to ask Seluvis? I recall that spiteful little rat acting like he knew something… Let’s give him a squeeze. Show him just how sharp my teeth are…
  • I jest, I wouldn’t go that far. Besides, I should check on some things here. Leave this place to me. You just do what you feel is right. If either of us learns anything, we tell the other. Right? And if we reach a dead end, I suppose we go back to the source. Seluvis rarely gives a straight answer, the first time.

After speaking with Seluvis but not yet with Sellen

  • Ah. Well met. What news?
  • [I still don't understand] Right. I see. Leave this place to me. You just do what you feel is right. If either of us learns anything, we tell the other. Right?

Second meeting at Siofra River, after talking to Sorceress Sellen or Iji

  • Ah. Well met. What news?

After selecting “Tell Sellen’s story” dialogue option.

  • Hmm… So Ranni’s fate is kept in stasis by Starscourge Radahn… That reminds me of something I heard. There’s a festival being held at the castle on the southern edge of the Caelid Wilds, east of Limgrave. It’s a festival of combat. And I heard… that you can fight Radahn himself. He who was once called the strongest of all the demigods… Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but I think it’s worth investigating. I’ll be on my way to this festival of Radahn then…
  • You’re coming too, right? To Radahn’s festivities… I’ll meet you at Redmane Castle in Caelid. The way ahead is pleasingly simple. We fight, sword and fang.

After selecting “Tell Iji's story” dialogue option.

  • Hmm... So Ranni's fate is kept in stasis by Starscourge Radahn... And there's a festival of war being held at Redmane Castle in Caelid, where you can fight the man himself, once the strongest of the demigods. It's all coming together. Seems like Iji was on to something. I'll be on my way to this festival of Radahn then...
  • You’re coming too, right? To Radahn’s festivities… I’ll meet you at Redmane Castle in Caelid. The way ahead is pleasingly simple. We fight, sword and fang.

After selecting “Don’t say anything” dialogue option.

  • Right. I see. Leave this place to me. You just do what you feel is right. If either of us learns anything, we tell the other. Right?

At Redmane Castle before the festival of Radahn begins

  • Ah, there you are. Took your sweet time. The players are all made up, and waiting for the curtain… Let’s give them a show to remember, eh. Just don’t you go dying on me. For Ranni’s sake, too.

After defeating Radahn

  • Ah, good. I was waiting for you. What a sick way to fight, eh. The glory of the clash is shared, by Radahn and you. And hah! Did you see that, afterwards? A falling star, right before our eyes! I can’t fathom how Radahn was holding back something of that scale. He was a living legend, if ever I saw one. And, the path has now been cleared. To Nokron, where Ranni’s fate will be decided. Let’s meet where the falling star bit the earth. We’ll take up our swords once more. For mistress Ranni. 
  • Let’s meet where the falling star bit the earth. And we’ll go into battle again, side by side. My only purpose is to fight for Ranni’s fate, sword and fang. The curtain’s rising… on the final act.

Blaidd’s message left at Mistwood Ruins (before the player enters Nokron)

  • There’s a traitor taken care of. Onwards to Nokron, then. Go on, I’ll catch up.

At Forlorn Hound Evergaol after defeating Radahn

  • Oh, it's you... It's me, Blaidd. Old Iji trapped me here. Told me I'd bring nought but bale to Lady Ranni. But there's no chance that could happen. I'm part of her being. Her very shadow... I thought old Iji knew as much... Honestly, I don't know what's going on anymore...
  • [Open the evergaol]
    My thanks, friend. I'm going to see mistress Ranni, now. I don't know what came over old Iji, but even if the odds are slim, I need to check the mistress is safe. Now, Ranni can finally set in motion the fight against her fate she's dreamt of for so long.

Before fighting a hostile Blaidd, outside the tower of Ranni’s Rise

  • <muttering to himself> No. I’m part of her very being! I could never betray her! No matter what might happen... Ranni... She needs me...


Elden Ring Blaidd Notes & Trivia

  • 'Blaidd' is Welsh for wolf, and is pronounced /blai̯ð/ (BLY-th).
  • Is referred to, by War Counselor Iji, as becoming more like a brother to Lady Ranni.

      Uses heals, hard too kill, useless in radahn fight, never fights with you hut takes all your credit and pretends to be all buddy buddy and then attacks you for no reason but Miyazaki Sama willed it so, bad npc in a bad game

      • Anonymous

        Finding him hostile in the Mistwood is simply a bug, it's unrelated to killing runebears or whatever other rumors there are.

          After beating Radahn I went to Nokron. Blaidd left me a message there saying something about a traitor I believe. We’ll see what happens I guess

              On my first play through his voice was a very pleasant surprise. I could listen to him all day long, when I first saw him I expected him to have the cliche overly deep and gruff werewolf voice but nope, I'd like him to read me a Bedtime story instead.

                  Just a thing i discovered recently, dunno if someone knew this, but there is some more dialogue if you attack him after beating radahn at the wailing dunes, and fun fact, if you rest at the wailing dunes he will keep respawning, still hostile, i tested this out three times and works even if traveling to another grace and then traveling back to wailing dunes, the dialogue in question is "You posses great strenght, but ask yourself, what's the pain, in injuring a shadow" iirc, just some more info since i didn't see this mentioned here

                    i killed him before even going to moonlight altar or getting the sword. I first killed astel, then radahn, then went for the cursemark and finally the ring. After the ring he appeared hostile

                      A bunch of vile hypocrites are crying over Blaidd's death, while personally killing him for the sake of fashionable armor and a sword.

                      • Is it to be assumed that there are no changes to his or Ranni's story/quest progression based on whether you leave him in the gaol or not since it's not mentioned here nor in comments?

                            I killed this useless npc first time, but he didn't dropped ****, it's better to kill them cause they are generic flower pots, I came to see this guy from ranni quests, he told me nothing about the quests, what can I do this game just doesn't work, complete flawed dull world due to inactive npcs, only worked for dark souls 1, not on this game. And please give me a loot when I choose to kill them :) and change your voices actors it's getting boring lol

                            • Blasted him off the cliff in siofra river, that will teach him for attacking on my last playthrough !

                                  When you talk to Ranni in doll form at some point, she describes sharing her past with your own maiden, and Blaidd as a thing given to her. It makes me wonder about the player character's tarnished's relationship with Melina. It feels like she exists for you, but maybe you were given to her, playing the same role Blaidd plays for Ranni.

                                    I'm going to ruin him for everyone: Blaidd is actually more like a cynocephali than an anthropomorphic wolf - in other words, he's a wolf MAN rather than a WOLF man. Everything below the head is a human body. No I don't care that it's canon, he's still a fluffy dog under that armor in my head.

                                      Quick note; During my friend's playthrough, we were doing a bit of RP and constantly checking in on Ranni's Rise for Blaidd - and I can now confirm that the trigger for Blaidd turning up there is getting the ring. Not putting it on Ranni, mind you - simply obtaining it and returning to Ranni's Rise will prompt Blaidd to appear.

                                                2. It would be his head

                                                      For those wanting to cheese the fight with him, a third safe way to kill him is with Rock Sling, which works great on the ledge near Ranni's Rise Site of Grace. He just stands there taking boulders to the face.

                                                          His aggressive state in Mistwood surely is odd. On my first playthrough, I killed the Runebear boss in one of the caves and maybe a couple of bears and rune bears in Mistwood, he was aggressive, no surprise. But on my second playthrough, I only killed the mimic tear bear in Limgrave and that one rune bear in a ravine by the Third Church of Marika that gets attacked by wolves, and he was completely friendly afterwards.

                                                              I highly recommend listening to the lore @kitetales on YT.

                                                              Blaidd was sent by the 2 fingers to be Ranni's tailored loyal servant, with a secret mission known not even to Blaidd to torment her while lost in madness should she stray her path set by the greater will.
                                                              After the battle of Radahn, you find Blaidd imprisoned, by his friend Iji in the evergaol to protect Ranni. Iji was aware of the manipulation of the greater will, however Blaidd could not fathom betraying his mistress. Despite this he was slowly losing his mind to madness.
                                                              The 2 fingers sent the hoard of assassins to kill Ranni's loyal followers. When Blaidd returned to Ranni's tower he fought and killed all the assassins alone, once he learned of his mistress's disappearance he could no longer hold back the Madness and his mind was lost.

                                                              With his mind lost to madness you have no other option but to end his torment, putting him to rest. Blaidd's last act was to protect his mistress.

                                                                rip half-wolf blood, you will be missed dearly :(

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      Haven't seen anyone mention this, but if you kill Radahn and not progress Ranni's questline, Blaidd doesn't leave the Wailing Dunes. Then, if you try to kill him he is always aggroed and always respawns after death.
                                                                      There's also some dialogue not listed here on the wiki:
                                                                      *When he spawns*
                                                                      " shadowbound. Wherever mistress Ranni goes, I follow. (You are a danger. You die here)"*
                                                                      *This dialogue doesn't always play for some reason.
                                                                      *When killed*
                                                                      "Traitorous wretch... You're... You're a danger..."
                                                                      *On player death*
                                                                      "Don't show your face again. Stay away from mistress Ranni."
                                                                      (Also be careful his spawn is right next to the grace and he can hit you right away)

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        If you go through the whole jogging across the Lands Between back and forth -marathon, and talk to Jerren after defeating the duo boss at the plaza prior to triggering the festival, talk to Iji, talk to Jerren about Iji and then again to Iji about Jerren... you can tell Blaidd at Siofra River what they said, instead of the Seluvis-Sellen route. With slight dialogue change, the quest progresses as usual after that.

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          He's always hostile when I enter the mistwood regardless of whether I did anything or not on 2 seperate new games I started. They must have screwed up his collision or something.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              So, I may have messed up royally here, but after meeting with Blaidd in Siofra and going back to talk with Seluvis, I killed Seluvis and talked with the sorceress who then told me to go back and speak with Blaidd. But when I got back to Siofra, Blaidd was hostile and Ranni was missing. Is there any way to fix this issue, or am I just SOL?

                                                                              • Anonymous

He didn't deserve to be betrayed by the one person he considered his close friend...all because Ranni is a selfish ***** who didn't care about anyone but herself.

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  I thought about just leaving him be after I finished Ranni's questline. But I really wanted his armor and weapon.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    I killed quite a few rune bears before talking to him, including the one sleeping right there by him, so I was worried, but after reading the comments, I think I figured it out. I rested at a site of grace, then emptied my inventory of any beast bones, meat, blood, or any other animal drops. Made sure not to kill anything on my way to him and to my surprise, he talked to me and was not aggressive. I had not attempted to talk to him before this, so I can't say for sure if he would have been aggressive beforehand or not, I'm guessing he would have though.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

Ranni admits to being the one who sent the black knives and all that but did she really send them after Blaidd? Or was that Iji protecting Ranni?
