Bloody Finger Hunter Yura Questline: How to complete Bloody Finger Hunter Yura's Quest

  • Bloody Finger Hunter Yura can initially be found under a ruin directly northeast of "Seaside Ruins" Grace [Map Link] in southern Limgrave. He will warn the Tarnished not to explore Agheel Lake because of the danger of a dragon.
    (If Yura is not at this location, he may have moved. Yura will move to his next location if the player defeats Bloody Finger Nerijus with or without him).
  • [Optional] Kill the Dragon in Agheel Lake
    • [Missable] Yura will congratulate the player and inform them of the location of Church of Dragon Communion, where they can use the heart of the dragon.
  • [Required] Upon approaching Murkwater Cave, the player will be invaded by Bloody Finger Nerijus.
    • [Optional] Yura can appear as a white summon to help against the invader.
    • [Optional] After defeating the invader, Yura can be found directly north of Murkwater Cave,  he's under a tunnel-like ruin. Here he will explain about his task of hunting down Bloody Fingers. [Map Link] If the dragon is not killed yet Yura will go back to its starting position close to the Seaside Ruins.
  • To progress the questline player must find a Red Summon Sign at the Main Academy gate site of Grace in Raya Lucaria [Map Link]. Walk through the bridge just before where the bridge drops off. Enter his world and defeat Bloody Finger Ravenmount Assassin, if defeated you will get Ash of war: Raptor of the mist. Afterward, talk to Yura who will be standing against the railing near to where his summon sign was unless the player has progressed too far in the game; if so, he will leave Nagakiba in his initial location, northeast of Seaside Ruins Grace . 
    • You must speak to Yura at least once for him to move to Raya Lucaria.
  • [Required] find him at second church of marika, to get Nagakiba and help him to defeat Eleonara 
    • If Yura or the player dies during this fight, Yura will not die, and the player can try again.
    • Winning this fight will reward first a Rune Arc and Furlcalling Finger Remedy, upon returning to your own world you will recieve Ash of War: Raptor of the Mists, and upon speaking to Yura you will receive Smithing Stone [5].
    • If Yura has been helped in Raya Lucaria before doing the optional quest line path, then they won't be there to congratulate you winning against the dragon etc., nor they won't appear against Bloody Finger Nerijus, nor will they appear directly north of the Murkwater Cave inside the tunnel-like path after defeating Bloody Finger Nerijus.
  •  [Required] Yura may be found at the Second Church of Marika on the Altus Plateau. Talking to him will reward the Nagakiba and lead to a battle with Eleonora, Violet Bloody Finger. [Map Link]

    • Winning this fight will reward Purifying Crystal Tear, Eleonora's Poleblade, and one Furlcalling Finger Remedy
    • Yura, who has had his body taken over by Shabriri, can be found at Zamor Ruins Grace. Shabriri will attempt to convince the player to take the path of the Frenzied Flame. The player can kill them to obtain the Ronin's Set, or find the set on the ground in Shabriri's place after accepting the frenzied flame from the Three Fingers
    • If the player doesn't complete Yura's quest prior to being possessed by Shabriri, they can still acquire most of the items. Bloody Finger Eleonora will still invade at the Second Church of Marika. Killing Eleonora will still reward Purifying Crystal Tear, Eleonora's Poleblade, and one Furcalling Finger Remedy. The Nagakiba can be found at the last location the player spoke with Yura prior to being possessed: 1. at Yura's camp northeast of the Seaside Ruins Site of Grace, 2. at the underpass below the Murkwater Coast Site of Grace, or 3. on the edge of the bridge a little way away from the Main Academy Gate Site of Grace. The trigger to make Yura disappear is entering the hall of Rold lift.

Dialogue in Elden Ring: Bloody Finger Hunter Yura

Introduction

  • Ah, you must be the new Tarnished.
    You'd do well to steer clear of Agheel Lake, fledgling.
    A dragon roosts there... And it's as fearsome as it it majestic. 
    So, unless you're mad, or wish to be burned alive...
    Stay clear of the lake.
  • Don't be a fool. Turn back, before it's too late.

During Bloody Finger Nerijus invasion

  • If it isn't Nerijus, The Bloody Finger. The end is nigh. For you, and your cessblood.

After Bloody Finger Nerijus invasion

  • Ah, we meet again. To have fought Nerijus and lived, you must have seen your share of battle. I am Yura, as you might recall, hunter of Bloody Fingers. Tarnished held in thrall by cessblood. Zealots who stalk their own. If you stay the path, you are certain to face more of them. Just remember, no kinship with their ilk remains. Their madness precludes it. Don't let your emotions stay your blade.

Introduction if not spoken to before Bloody Finger Nerijus Invasion

  • Just joining the fray, Tarnished?
    Well, you fought Nerijus and survived. That alone deserves commendation.
    I am Yura. Hunter of Bloody Fingers.
    Tarnished held in thrall by cessblood. Zealots who stalk their own. 
    If you stay the path, you are certain to face more of them.
    Just remember. No Kinship with their ilk remains. Their madness precludes it.
    Don't let your emotions stay your blade.
  • One last word of warning.
    Stay clear of Agheel Lake. A great dragon roosts there.
    And it's as fearsome as it is majestic.
    So, unless you're mad, or wish to be burned alive...
    stay clear of the lake.
  • Be on your way.
    Perhaps we will meet again, if fate permits.

After dying to Agheel Lake Dragon, and returning to the Seaside Ruins location

  • You bloody halfwit. Picking a fight with a dragon? Well, I can tell you want to see it through. Seems I'm forever crossing paths with hotheads like you. 
  • I can tell you want to see it through. Fools will be fools. Fight all the dragons you like.

§After killing Agheel Lake Dragon, and returning to the Seaside Ruins location

  • Beautiful work, felling that dragon. And as such there's something you might like to know. That heart you brought back, its used in Dragon Communion. If you should find yourself overcome by hunger for the heart, yearning for its strength, then seek the decrepit church, on the little island off the western coast.
  • You must not forget though. Those who partake in Dragon Communion will one day shed their humanity. Their hunger for dragon, their yearning, only worsens. Until the floodgates burst, unleashing eternal torment. The strength of a mighty dragon. Magnificent, but deadly. Its no surprise that Dragon Communion is ruinous.

After summoning Yura to help kill the Agheel Lake Dragon, and returning to the Seaside Ruins Location

  • There you are. That was my first dragon hunt in quite some time. Paired up with a hothead like you, it was just like old times.
  • Now that you've so impressively felled that dragon, there's something you should know. That heart you brought back, its used in Dragon Communion. If you should find yourself  overcome by hunger for the heart. yearning for its strength, then seek the decrepit church, on the little island  off the western coast.
  • You must not forget though. Those who partake in Dragon Communion will one day shed their humanity. Their hunger for  dragon, their yearning, only worsens. Until the floodgates burst, unleashing eternal torment. The strength of a mighty dragon. Magnificent, but deadly. Its no surprise that Dragon Communion is ruinous.

  • Be on your way. Perhaps we will meet again, if fate permits.

After invading Bloody Finger Ravenmount Assassin

  • Wretched worms, leave me be...
  • Ah, oh, it's you. Thanks for your help there.
    That Bloody Finger was a thorn in my side. And now I'm finally rid of him.
    Here's a token of thanks. Please take it.
  • I may not have much time.
    I'm dying to see you, Eleonora... Violet Bloody Finger...
  • Yes, I've been tracking Eleonora for quite some time.
    She is the deadliest of all the Bloody Fingers. She's felled many an old hand already.
    But in spite of her cessblood zealotry, Eleonora is a proud knight.
    If she comes for you, do not think twice. You must flee.
    There is no shame in self preservation.

§At the Second Church of Marika

  • Eleonora, it seems I am no match for you.
    But I've learned a thing or two myself, you see.
    I've sliced the finger off.
    Please, please, Eleonora, yield to the cessblood no longer.
    Do not stain the immaculacy of your sword, your flesh, your fire...

After being attacked

  • (Combat) Too late for you, eh? Well, if you've succumbed to cessblood... it's better that I finish you here.
  • (On player kill) I had no choice. Your death could have been much worse.

Upon defeat

  • I must not die... until she is eradicated.

 

Elden Ring Notes & Trivia for Bloody Finger Hunter Yura

  • In combat, Yura wields a Nagakiba. When fighting him after he is possessed by Shabriri, he moves his sword to his left hand, and now has a Frenzied Flame Seal, using it to cast Unendurable Frenzy, Inescapable Frenzy, and Howl of Shabriri (insert other spells)
  • Eleonora appears to have taken part in Dragon Communion based on her armor and spells used during the invasion. This explains how Yura knows about Dragon Communion and how it works, as well as the dangers of it. 

 If you reach the capital, you will miss An ash of war, Raptor of the mist, his armour set and the katana can be obtained later in the game even if you miss entirely his quest ( not sure about Eleonora's Poleblade)

      Just to put it here i just killed Morgott before coming back to do his quest so its definitely not cut off at the capital

      • Anonymous

        Trying to get him to show up during the invasion outside of Patches' cave, and he takes his sweet old time coming to help. I'm so strong that all I can do is run, and trying to perfect dodge everything for that time is a chore.

          The only thing I needed from him was raptor mist and aparently is the only thing I can't get so now I have to play at least 5 more hours just to get It :) thanks Miyazaki

            Just to clarify the initial meeting conditions after some testing: while his initial location is indeed next to Seaside Ruins south of the lake, you can also consider it his primary location. He only moves temporarily north of the lake in the river, under the ruins next to the jellyfish, during the invasion that happens when walking through the middle section of this long river. Also, the invasion itself is the trigger for him to switch places, not the kill itself. You don't need to defeat Nerijus in order for him to move there; fleeing the invasion by continuing north to find Yura will give you a small variation of his line where he says "made good on your escape from Nerijus" (missing here in the wiki) instead of "to have fought Nerijus and lived" if you do manage to kill him instead. So this can be Yura's first location if you simply happened to have gone through there first.

            So the wording about his movements in the Limgrave section isn't exactly clear in this regard as it states "If Yura is not at this location [Seaside Ruins], he may have moved. Yura will move to his next location if the player defeats Bloody Finger Nerijus with or without him". Rather, it's more of a temporary and conditional location until you take care of Nerijus, after which he simply moves back to his primary location, next to his fire and shelter near the Seaside Ruins.

            Also, his dialogue and involvement with the dragon in the lake happens from either of the two locations above as well.

              Seems like Yura is inspired by or references the Mound Makers covenant in Dark Souls III. The covenant allows you to be a mad spirit killing everyone. The rewards for the covenant are a katana called Bloodlust and a pyromancy, Warmth, which has an icon that looks like the frenzied flame/three fingers.

                The quest step part of this article is awful. Who thought it was a good idea to add clarification for the previous step AFTER already listing the next step???

                • Anonymous

                  If you succesfully do the first step of his quest, then progress the game to the point his body gets possessed, you can still go back to Raya Lucaria and use the summon sign to do the 2nd step, even though thats no longer him

                    ATTENTION
                    If you killed Nerijus before talking to him and can't seem to continue his quest, go to the little ruin nearby where you fought and he'll be under there to talk to and continue the quest!

                      This guy really put Piercing Fang on the only weapon in the entire game where it would be a downgrade to the default Ash of War. What a clown.

                        He says "Unless you are MAD, or wish to be BURNED ALIVE" in his first encounter... Feels like foreshadowing to me...

                          For those of you still searching for Yuras damn summon sign for Agheel when you've done everything necessary for it to appear, it's between the very northwest corner of the Dragonburnt ruins and the big ruin chunk in some trees. There's apparently another stake of marika there but for some reason the game respawns you at the one further south on the shore so it's easy to miss this one. Map coordinates -194:105 to be exact.

                                    Mf really went like, "Do not eat the dragon. Do not taste its heart's supple flesh, mixed in with sharp, rocky scales that betray their ancient, deific origin. I repeat, do not eat the red, juicy, persimmon-like dragon heart. Lest you become a lowly wyrm, rhytmically slithering across the ground in an aesthetically pleasing fashion for an eternity."

                                    ***** of course I ate it, you went for the hard sale.

                                      I've never completed his quest because I never noticed him after beating the ravenmount assassin. I always got the item on the bridge then fought the assassin, so there was never any point for me to go to that bridge again.

                                      • So, I got to the part where Yura is dead and his body is possessed.

                                        I read this wiki saying check the three spots for the item.
                                        0 for 3. Can't find any drops

                                          My first interaction with him, was when I had just started playing, accidentally fell off a cliff, and just as I was about to teleport to heal, he was summoned and killed me. How fun.

                                            OK wow, I don't understand how so many people have not understood this - spoiler warning if you care but here's a bunch of important bits about Yura (lore-wise mostly):
                                            - When you meet Yura early in his chain, he's a "normal" Tarnished with perfectly human eyes (just swivel camera to see under Bellhat, he's got shaggy grey hair and beard and unremarkable eyes).
                                            - If you respond to the red summons on the Academy bridge and talk to him afterwards, he tells you about Eleonara. If you think back to his second place under the fallen ruin north of Murkwater, he tells you to "let not emotion stay your blade" when fighting the Bloody Fingers. This aligns with the idea that he has some kind of personal connection to Eleonara - he's speaking from personal experience.
                                            - Eleonara KILLS HIM. When you get to the Second Church, hurry over to where he's bleeding out on the floor and listen (or read the dialogue on the wiki section lol), he states that he was "no match" for her. After his dialogue ends, he DIES of his wounds and becomes a lootable corpse and that's why you can take his sword lol. On this spot for the rest of the game is a large bloodstain.
                                            - It seems folks who encounter him again after this point just assumed he was still alive all that time... he was not. Shabriri took over his dead body. It's only after Eleonara kills him that he has the burning eyes of Frenzy as the other poster noticed.

                                            hope that helps anyone confused at the sequence of events :)

He doesn't have that many lines but man the ones he has are delivered with such raw emotion. The inflection is so genuine it really dug into my heart.

Is there some reason behind that? I think it has to do with why/how Shabriri possessed him. But I want to know more about how he got the eyes of frenzy, and if that has any significance or if it was just some visual bug?

                                                              This page should be updated with the following info:
                                                              1. In order Yura's NPC summoning sign appear near the stake of Marika, the player must initially die during a fight with the dragon AND respawn at a site of grace. If a player respawns at the stake of Marika, the summoning sign will not appear. Same true for Yura's monolog berating the player for trying to fight the dragon. To trigger this dialog, the player MUST respawn at a site of grace, not at the stake of Marika. Because this additional information was missing, it took me some time to figure out on my own. Not sure if this is intentional or just deficiency in the game mechanics.
                                                              2. Once Yura has been summoned to fight the dragon, he will disappear from his initial location under the overpass nearby. From that point, the player must kill the dragon in order to trigger Yura's reappearing at the "overpass" location. This remains true regardless of whether Yura is summoned again to continue fighting the dragon.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

So for anyone starting Elden Ring now or anyone just getting around to Margit and want to use the shackle, but are struggling with the npc invader the way I did, the Nerijius fight can be made a lot easier. Approach Murkwater cave from the Agheel lake end of the canyon, but take the time to kill all the skeleton enemies you'll see on the way, including those hanging from the bridge, you'll be fighting the npc invader quite close to where the skeletons are and they will agro and join in if you get close enough to them. I killed the giant mosquitoes as well to make sure they couldn't interfere either. Next equip a bow and walk towards Murkwater cave, stop moving forward when you see the message saying you are being invaded, when Nerijius spawns in and starts running towards you, try targeting him until you get a target lock. As soon as you do, shoot arrow after arrow as quickly as you can at him until he gets in range and one hits him. If you have the arrow's reach talisman or if you can hit him before he gets close enough to target lock by aiming manually all the better. As soon as you've hit him with an arrow, equip your weapon of choice and run back towards Agheel lake, you might need to practice it once to see the sweet spot of getting as close to Agheel lake as you can without Nerijius going back to his own world, but he may get to you before that can happen anyway. When he does catch up with you, for now concentrate on staying alive rather than fighting him. The point of doing all this is to be fighting Nerijius alone for the shortest amount of time possible. The timer for Yura to come and help you fight this npc apparently doesn't start until you land your first hit, so shooting Nerijius with an arrow before getting as close to Agheel lake as you can means Yura will get to you as quickly as possible. This npc invader is a lot easier to deal with, especially for low levelled characters, when Yura is there to help. As soon as Yura turns up, switch from concentrating on staying alive to killing Nerijius. I don't know if all this is obvious to everyone else, but it wasn't to me. I died more times fighting Nerijius trying to get access to Margit's shackle than I did to Margit himself, it feels like an intentional f-you from the developers.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              This is false. I've reached the Mountaintops, killed Shabriri, and the Nagakiba is not in any of these 3 locations.

                                                                              • If you run away from the Nerijus invasion, you can find him leaning against the wall in the jellyfish tunnel. He'll have some unique dialog about how you ran away. You can reset the area and fight Nerijus as normal afterward.

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  I feel like a lot of people miss the subtext of his quest. The only person who's worse than someone who hunts down others by trade is someone who hunts others and has to tell themselves that it's righteous. If you speak to Yura after helping him with his target at Raya Lucaria, he's clearly already half-mad, rambling to himself about how these "wretched worms" should leave him alone. This ultimately leads him to confrontation with Elonora and his demise. When you find Yura, he's on the verge of death but still pleading for Elonora to stop being a Bloody Finger. Ironically, if you look at Eleonora's NPC model, she's missing the trident mark the other Bloody Fingers have. You also get the Crystal Tear you need to resist Mohg's curse from her. Her title, Violet Bloody Finger, might be another clue to her true nature. She's straddling the line between blue and red. Whereas she was making her own path, presumably seeking to subvert Mohg's plans, Yura abandoned himself to a fanatical hatred of Bloody Fingers that is, in a way, not so different from them. I don't think it's a coincidence that Shabriri chose him as vessel.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                        • What exactly should I do? I followed all his quest steps, got to the Altus Plateau, went to the Second Church, and immediately got invaded. I killed the invader and checked all around the church, and Yura was nowhere to be found. Does this mean he'll be in the Mountaintops of the Giants possessed by Shabriri? Or did I screw up somewhere along the questline?

                                                                                          • Anonymous

You can aid yura with arrows or backstabbing nerijus after he shoots reduvia. After that go to dragonbarrow for greyoll and put everything to VIT, and you're set for everything else. Raven guy won't do much damage and Eleonora will never kill you from full health. I used the bandit's knife and reduvia both +1.

After killing Nerijus you have to talk to him in the underpass north of Murkwater Cave site of grace. I spent a long time looking for him in all of the other spots mentioned here, and it was that one chunk of dialog that was stopping him from travelling elsewhere. Hope this helps someone finish his storyline.
