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".
  • See it on the Elden Ring Map here.

blaidd mistwood encounter

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 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.
    • See it on the Elden Ring Map here.

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. You can find him on the Interactive Map here.
  • 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
  • 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 desert 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. Elden Ring 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.
    • Players who wanted to interact with Blaidd should note that leaving Radahn's battlefield after his death is the trigger for Iji imprisoning Blaidd regardless of prior interaction or progress. He will remain in the evergoal 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. 
    • If Blaidd is not in the Evergaol and you've defeated Radahn, he may still be waiting at the Starcourge Radahn Site of Grace waiting for the player. 
  • 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.

Elden Ring Blaidd Combat information

  • Health: 1506-3175 HP
  • Poise: 80

Absorptions

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.

Resistances

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.

Second meeting at Siofra River, after talking to Sorceress Sellen

  • 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 “Don’t say anything” dialogue option.

  • ???

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-dh).
  • Is referred to, by War Counselor Iji, as becoming more like a brother to Lady Ranni.

      ive made things so hard for myself i killed kale the started the radahn festival then killed a runebear. i also killed Darriwil. blaidd turned hostile and i killed him without ever hearing any of his dialogue. worst of all, ranni just ceased to exist.

      • Anonymous

        Can he be killed in Mistwood when you first meet him? If so - does he still drop his armor set and weapon upon death?

        • Anonymous

          "I'm looking for a man called Darriwil. He told me that colossal swords were lame, and I'm seeking him out to politely dispute his opinion."

          • Anonymous

            Blaidd reminds me of solaire. Hes a very friendly dude who offers his summon sign in a bossfight, hes your friend for the majority of your journey however eventually loses himself and goes mad.

            • Anonymous

              There's different dialogue if you progressed the questline up to meeting him underground, but trigger the Rahdan festival before meeting him there. Happened to me, he said something including the line "we missed out meeting", though I don't remember the rest.

              • Anonymous

                If Blaidd is hostile and you kill him he won't die. Instead, the next tim you go to mistwood, he will murmur something about not being able to kill a shadow. Therefore, it is possible to atone at the church of vows if you kill Blaidd.

                • So I cheesed him on accident. So he attacks after the ranni quest is completed. At her tower , we both go upstairs , I take the elevator down , Blaidd decides to jump down. Instant death.

                  • Anonymous

                    You know what I wished happened? I wish we got Blaidd as spirit ashes when you kill him at the end of the questline. As some way of still helping you and thus, helping Ranni, even in death, despite being driven into a feral insanity.

                        I got the Carian Filigreed Crest without speaking to him at the evergaul, meeting IJI after that, talking to him in the underground, and just doing the quest from Redmans castle

                        • Anonymous

                          I only met/spoke to Blaidd after killing Starscourge Radahn and didn't do his quest before. Then started Ranni's quest where he was not present for meeting Ranni's servants and after I could not find him at anywhere and thought the quest had bugged.

                          Solution: Skipping his quest ment I had not killed Darriwil at Forlorn Hound Evergaol and I did not have the option to free Blaidd or summon him at Forlorn Hound Evergaol.
                          However after killing Darriwil I could go back to the deactivated seal on the ground where you enter the Darriwil fight and was given the option to "Talk" and then free Blaidd.

                            it hurt my heart when he turned hostile. I couldn't kill him so I just ran away with tears in my eyes and never went back there. my love...

                              If I already started Ranni's questline (next step is Siofra River), is it too late to do the beginning quest part for Blaidd? I mean the evergaol stuff. I somehow missed him in Mistwood ruins beforehand =/. I'm wondering if there is a point in Ranni's questline where he may return back to that area and allow me to do that and get the finger snap gesture and stuff. If anyone has been in this same situation, some insight would really be appreciated.

                                        Not sure what happened exactly, but my first time through the game I was able to find him in mistwood, but after dying to a runebear and coming back, as soon as the runebear attacked me again Blaidd inexplicably turned hostile. I left the area and did the thing at the church of vows, but when I went back to mistwood he was gone and just vanished from the game completely. I did the Ranni questline later and he wasn't even mentioned. She just told me to meet Iji and Seluvius, but no sign of blaidd anywhere.

                                                Blaidd aggroing at the mistwood ruins is likely a bug. On my first run I killed the Runebear before I even knew he was there but nothing happened. On my second character all I did was wake the Runebear up by sneaking past it (didn't even hit it a single time) and Blaidd became hostile when I returned later.

                                                • Either things have changed with v1.4 or there's a bug associated with finding any information about Blaidd being in Forlorn Hound Evergaol. After the Festival, getting the knife and getting the ring. I checked the original meeting point and talking to Iji before and after each event. I did not get a message or speak to Iji about it. So I had no in-game lead, only guides on the internet.

                                                      It's also worth mentioning that you can also go to Castellan Jerren in Redmane Castle, who will tell you how the Stars will "set Ranni's fate in motion." Then go back to Iji and tell him of this, and he will direct you to go to Blaidd at Redmane Castle when the festival begins. You can then go back to Siofra River and talk to Blaidd about what Iji told you. It's an alternative and much more straightforward way to get the information regarding the Festival than going to the creep Seluvis about it.

I did the gesture to summon him from the side with the bear, and noticed a healthbar take 1506 damage. Guess he falls into place when you summon him and can die.

No harm can befall a Shadow" and a hostile Blaidd. The conditions that this line is intended for are if the player reloads the area after killing Blaidd. But for the player to kill Blaidd, you would first need to talk to Kale and use the Finger Snap gesture to beckon him down from the ruins. So in my playthrough and the playthroughs of others, something is causing Blaidd to die that is absent any player input. What the problem may be is still a mystery, but my guess is that Blaidd is spawning on the map before the terrain underneath him is fully loaded, causing him to die due to fall damage.

                                                                            • He never appeared at the evergaol for me, and went to the last bit at the Rise before I finished Ranni's quest. I am right before fighting Black Blade, and went back to do some more side stuff including Fia's quest, and after that got the Cursemark. Haven't handed in the Cursemark yet, and he's at the Rise.

                                                                              • Anonymous

I don't remember what he says though. Something along the lines of "we missed our meeting".

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

I only defeated Astel, picked up Ranni's ring and found her body. Left without putting it on her finger, and there was Blaidd anyway.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

And where was the howling scene from the trailer? Nothing like that happens in game.

                                                                                      What an absolute shame, FromSoft.

Although, it's very characteristic of Iji to misjudge a person—as he even admits after Blaidd's death.

                                                                                        • So I'm making this comment as I'm the one who posted about the rune bear kill making him hostile. I could be wrong but, for WHATEVER reason, he becomes hostile in nearly every playthrough the second I meet him and I have zero idea why. I can also kill a rune bear sometimes before meeting him and he will be fine. I can kill Bloodhound Darwil before meeting him and he will be fine. Most of the time though, It feels like I'm risking him being hostile if I kill any of them and it's so inconsistent that It might just be a bug.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

Sorry for not having the exact phrasing, I didnt think I'd be writing this but saw it wasn't in this entry. If you defeat Blaidd here and get that piece of dialogue, there will be no loot and he will respawn when you rest. If you leave, I don't know where he shows up next because now he's hostile and I haven't done any of his quest arcs.

I think he only uses it after you parry him (though it takes two parries to properly stagger him), but he may retaliate by pinning you down and repeatedly biting your throat before ripping it out entirely. Very intimate, 10/10 way to die.

I had no choice but to kill him. Despite being a full caster build, I re-specced so I can wear his armor (also ditched my Mistveil for the Dark Moon Greatsword). By wearing his armor, he still protects me.

It's a regular attack, not a plunging attack or from magic getting through the shield, it just doesn't interact with the shield at all, doesn't cause stamina loss either.

                                                                                                                        Is there any in game hint that he's imprisoned on that evergaol? I know that FS quests are mysterious and all, but this part of the quest is not hinted anywhere.

I must admit, I was a little worried. We missed our meeting. But it looks like you’re still in one piece, eh. You must have heard by now, right? That Starscourge Radahn holds Ranni’s fate in stasis. But once he’s out of the way, it will spring back into motion. So now, we stand against the demigod once known as the strongest of them all. The way ahead is pleasingly simple. We fight, sword and fang.”
                                                                                                                          After speaking to him again, he says “Once more into the frey together, eh.”

                                                                                                                          • Anonymous

I freed him in my last playthrough and he ended up going cray cray and trying to kill me because he was conflicted between his loyalty to Ranni and the curse from the fingers that he has to stop her if she betrays them. If I leave him in the gaol will he just stay there nice and safe exactly why Iji put him in there, or will he just be out front of Ranni's Rise as the end of the questline anyway because plot?
