Hyetta Questline: How to complete Hyetta's Quest

 

Dialogue in Elden Ring: Hyetta

Introduction

  • "Hello? Is someone there? My name is Hyetta, and I'm journeying in search of the distant light. If I might be so bold as to ask... would you donate any Shabriri grapes in your possession to me? My eyesight has been weak since birth, you see. I can't tell which way I'm supposed to go next. But when I eat one of those grapes, I can feel a distant light in the back of my eyes. It will lead me, to my true duty, as a Finger Maiden".
  • (If offered a Shabriri Grape)
    "Oh, many thanks to you. Now I can feel the distant light once more. You are most kind, indeed. May the blessing of the Fingers be upon you".

After Given a Shabriri Grape at the Purified Ruins

  • You're not like the others who give me grapes, are you...They rest their trembling hands upon me. Howling wordlessly, they gently stroke my eyes. Their frail fingers, emaciated...Yet still, they give me the grapes. But you...seem somehow...firmer. You are most kind, indeed. May the blessings of the Fingers be upon you. 

After Given a Shabriri Grape at the Gate Town Bridge

  • I wonder, what are Shabiri Grapes? Delectably tender and sweet, yet searing... What sight they must behold. "

After telling her the grapes are actually human eyes

  • N-no... that's not possible. Not all of those people...their own...so those noises I heard were...-
    <brief pause, gags>
    Sorry, I'm alright now. I apologize. You only did what I asked. I'll be fine. Think no more of it. 
    [She begins to hurl as you walk away]

After reloading the same area and talking to her again

  • Ah, is that you over there? I have gleaned something very important indeed, thanks to you. The reason why it was eyes I had to eat. The distant light is far and frail. So faint it can't be seen by the naked eye. But with everyone's eyes together, it appears. Finally, it all makes sense. I am certain now, I will become a finger maiden.

Asking for a Fingerprint Grape at Bellum Church

  • Oh hello, is that you over there? Have you ever heard of fingerprint grapes? They're special grapes which only grow on those who've been clasped by the burnt Fingers. I would truly love to try one.... The distant light seems far closer than before. But I can't sense a thing from the usual grapes anymore... Please, could you donate a fingerprint grape to me? Without one I don't know, I feel like I might go mad.

After giving a Fingerprint Grape at Bellum Church

  • Oh, Oh! A fingerprint grape, tried and true, what a wondrous thing! A fingerprint grape!
    <chewing noises>
    Ohh, how sweet, yet, how it burns...
    <wordless joy>
    Thank you. I've composed myself again. May the blessings of the Fingers be upon you.
  • Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I'm sure I'll be a Finger Maiden.

At Frenzied Flame Proscription

  • Ah, so you're here as well, are you? ...I realized as we've talked. I'll be a Maiden. And you... surely, a Lord. Go to the door ahead, after divesting yourself of your possessions. It will surely open, and the Three Fingers will welcome you. May the flame of chaos find purchase within you.

After the Tarnished is marked by the Three Fingers

  • Ahhh, the flame of chaos has nestled within you. Could you please rest your hand upon me? Burn me with the flame, to make me your Maiden...

After touching Hyetta

  • Oh, it burns... My eyes, my eyes, they're melting... Aaargh!
  • Thank... thank you... I have touched them. The words of the Three Fingers. As your maiden, allow me to divine them. All that there is came from the One Great. Then came fractures, and births, and souls. But the Greater Will made a mistake. Torment, despair, affliction... every sin, every curse. Every one, born of the mistake. And so, what was borrowed must be returned. Melt it all away, with the yellow chaos flame. Until all is One again.
  • Those who gave me grapes howled without words. Saying they wished they were never born. Become their lord. Take their torment, despair. Their affliction. Every sin, every curse. And melt it all away. As the Lord of Chaos. No more fractures...no more birth... (sighs)

Small Talk

  • At the Lake-Facing Cliffs site of grace : "You are most kind, indeed. May the blessing of the Fingers be upon you."

After attacking

  • What on earth? I do not wish to cause anyone harm...
  • (On player kill) Oh, bless the stars. You've chosen to reconsider.

Upon defeat

  • Ahh, the distant light...fades... I'm so sorry, my dears...

 

Hyetta Notes & Trivia

  • Hyetta can count as the maiden mentioned in the White-Faced Varrré's questline. While killing a maiden is not necessary, you can kill her to cover the Lord of Blood's Favor in blood.
  • When found at the Frenzied-Flame Proscription, her title is now Finger Maiden Hyetta, showing that she has successfully become a Finger Maiden, albeit one of the Three Fingers'.
  • Irina and Hyetta have the same face and clothing.
  • Her quest can still be completed after using Miquella's Needle or completing an ending.

      Lol you can actually acquire the frenzied flame after beating the game, but before starting NG+. So you can still get the frenzied flame seal

      • Anonymous

        If I reverse the frenzied flame ending I can still touch Hyetta after using the needle. Will that lock me back to the Frenzied Flame ending?

          What's the best course of action if you want to avoid the three fingers? Is it still possible to finish her questline or should you kill her?

            • Anonymous

              Interestingly if you kill her, she drops 3 frenzyflame stones even before you give her any grapes, and thus before she even has any association with the Frenzied Flame bar the reference to Shabriri

              She’s definitely Irina revived by the Frenzied Flame somehow. Same voice actor, same model, hell one of the grapes you get is from irina’s dad.

              • Anonymous

                Yes Irina's body remains, but the fact that the quests are connected at all hints that there is something interesting going on. Given that puppeteering/remote control is such a dominant theme in the game, it'd be weirder if it were merely a coincidence or something.

                A couple things I find interesting are the weird description of the "others" who give her grapes: "They rest their trembling hands upon me. Howling wordlessly, they gently stroke my eyes. Their frail fingers, emaciated"

                and the fact that she's losing her memory/mind halfway through the quest line

                • Anonymous

                  If you did enything else, including meeting the three fingers, you can still do her Quest to the end and get the flame. just did it

                    I didn't rly do her questline properly, maybe gave her 1 grape yet still managed to get the frenzied flame ending

                      this entry is incorrect, i skipped over irina and edgar's questline and still got invaded by edgar, even dropping a grape when he died.

                        Important. Hyetta is way of west from the ruins where the enemies spawn, she is by the one where no enemies spawn

                          I have started a new game did Irinas quest and given hyeta the first grape, why wot she spawn at the ruins, this will be the third time I failed this quest

                          • Anonymous

                            what is the mistake that the Greater Will did that led to the curse and needing to "return what was borrowed"? anyone?

                            • Anonymous

                              Please mention alongside the warning that you will get locked out of the other endings that you will also get locked out of Melina's quest.

                                Irina's body is still there after Burning Hyetta. So No body snatching. Doppleganger or something like growry maybe but hyetta is ashes and irina is still a dead body.

                                  So 3 grapes needed to progress her questline, but one is locked behind a +8 weapon. Neat design. Low level pvp character in shambles

                                    Kinda odd that every ending involving maidens always makes them die, Melina dies, Hyetta dies, Ranni already died, Fia dies.

                                          What happen if you cure the curse with Miquella's needle before talk to her in the moment when she ask you to touch her eyes?

                                            This suggests she might have taken over Irina’s body but I met Hyetta before going to the Weeping Peninsula and meeting Irina.

                                              progress her quest until she is standing at the door before the three fingers and leave her there. get back to finishing the game with your preferred ending and then get back to hyetta. you can still get marked by the fingers and enjoy the cool eyes and the frenzy warming stones

                                                Just finished her quest line after having used miquellas needle to remove the frenzied flame and choosing a different ending (duskborn). Still was able to finish as if I still had frenzied flame. Almost ready for Ng+ to melt away the suffering of all these poor unfortunate souls.

                                                  So killing Irina prevents Hyetta from spawning.

                                                  I guess that more or less proves that they are the same person and someone or something is using her body.

                                                  She does die as well shortly after when the Tarnished touches her with the Frenzied Flame.

                                                  Or I can just be looking into it too much and it's more reused assets lol.

Found her still at the spot so got naked, got Fingered, and then finished her quest :)

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                        "Fixed a bug that prevented "Edgar the Revenger" and "Festering Fingerprint Vyke" from invading after defeating all the bosses in Liurnia of the Lake."

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          I think if you ignore her quest for some time, she is disappear.

                                                                                          Two things I think could have caused this:
                                                                                          1. I killed Festering Fingerprint Vyke before giving her any grapes.
                                                                                          2. I talked to her BEFORE doing Irina and Edgar's quest. Killed Edgar AFTER Vyke.
                                                                                          This all happened before 1.03, after the patched I checked again before and after the fire giant, couldn't find her in any location. Went to Three Fingers, she isn't there. Light the tree up using madness, she never appeared.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                              Theory: Irina's father Edgar made a deal with the Frenzied Flame/3-Fingers or Shabriri to bring back his daughter, but in turn he was afflicted with madness and hence why he becomes the "Revenger" in Liurnia, and why you meet Hyetta at the start of the region as well. This would explain why Irina's body is still where she originally died, as her corpse wasn't possessed by someone like Shabriri, but was literally reborn as a new being. Which is why she has no memories of being Irina, and has a identically appearance/voice-actor/blindness. However this is also kind of alarming, because it means that the 3-fingers have some means of rebirthing souls into new bodies/beings in the same manner as the Erdtree and/or Rennala. Making the connections/lore of both the 2-fingers and 3-fingers (2+3=5, a full hand) being Outer-Gods with a shared origin as being more plausible.

                                                                                              • Anonymous

However, even after meeting Hyetta, Irina's body remains where it is."

                                                                                                              I had gotten all the way down to the proscription area but didn't enter the big flame doors. I kept progressing the story, beat the game with ranni's ending, then came back to the proscription and went through the doors/completed the quest.

                                                                                                              • Anonymous

I touched a grace on my way, but didn't rest between the erdtree and the invasion. My understanding was that you can't kill the MAIN boss, so I figured I would be okay. Maybe I'm just lucky that I didn't rest at a grace, because I started this ng+ to get these questions that I missed last time.

Tested this on a NG, shimmied along the cliffside to Liurnia prior to defeating Godrick, without yet having delivered Irina's letter, with the lady herself still hanging out on the road to castle Morne. Hyetta simply would not spawn.

On my 2nd playthru it bugged, and i already kill loreta at caria manor. On my 3rd playthru, i rushed to frenzied flame village and vyke invaded me. so yeah, i guess PoNR for vyke invading event is knight loreta at caria manor, u MUST NOT kill her in order for vyke to invade you

Does accepting the three fingers thing and getting the “I hate you” speech from Melina lock you out of all future ‘Talk to Melina’ interactions at some of the graces?

                                                                                                                                          She would need to have the ability to take over a corpse before becoming a Finger Maiden, which is also countered by the fact that Shabiri eyes were gouged out before he contracts the Frenzied Flame and become a vessel of chaos, aka chaos incarnate.

                                                                                                                                              • You don't have to keep the Erdtree Avatar at the Northeastern Liurnia Minor Erdtree alive to trigger the Vyke Invasion. I killed the Erdtree Avatar a few days ago and Vyke invaded me tonight like a half hour ago at the Church of Inhibition like he was supposed to and dropped his spear and the Fingerprint Grape like he should.

                                                                                                                                                Tbf I did see a bunch of messages around the path to the church saying he didn't invade and that it must be a bug in varying ways using the game's message templates lol

                                                                                                                                                It's weird though, cause while I still get invisible small enemy mobs whenever my laptop gets overburdened like having stuff open or alt-tabbing out a few times (switched to borderless windowed 1080 and medium graphics so now it only happens when there's too much going on).

                                                                                                                                                But anyway, I went from the Church of Vows/Pope Turtle, to the Uld/Labyrinth Ruins and took out the Ancestral Follower snipers ,to Mausoleum Compound and brought both Mausoleums down, to the Minor Erdtree and took out the Ancestral Followers and the Erdtree Avatar, Torrent-jumped up the rocks and cliff to the Frenzy Flame Village Outskirts, took out the Eye of Sauron casting bastatds at the tower and opened the chest, cleared the village itself and picked up the items and killed everyone including the rats, and then headed to the Church of Inhibition, grabbing items and killing mobs and scarabs along the way, and he invaded just fine for me. I ran past and activated the grace site and picked up the Sacred Tear and the Finger Maiden Set and used her blood on the Lord's Favor, died to him twice, and got him the third time after dying to him catching up and then not noticing he also dealt madness, then messing up my items cause I was on the madness boluses instead of my crimson flask estus and died cause of it lol and then finally got him the third time after actually paying more attention lol

                                                                                                                                                But yeah, he spawned/invaded just fine for me, so you don't need to keep the Erdtree Avatar alive.

                                                                                                                                                However I still haven't cleared Raya Lucaria Academy or beaten Rennala or the Caria Manor and gone to the Three Sisters to serve Ranni or Seluvis yet, so idk if that has anything to do with it since Rennala is technically the area's boss/region's lord/lady/shardbearer, so I dunno lol

However, when I reached the church, Vyke spawned anyway, even though the wiki says he wouldn't. Upon defeating Vyke, I still obtained the fingerprint grape, and was able to continue Hyetta's questline. It is noteworthy that 1) I met Irina and obtained her letter, but then gave Hyetta the first grape from Stormveil before reaching castle Morne, and so Irina's father Edgar despawned from Morne before I could meet him. 2) I finished castle Morne before I acquired a second grape. 3) I fought off Edgar as an invader at the revenger's shack and obtained his grape before obtaining the second grape from the Purified Ruins. 4) I obtained the second and thrid grape (and had 2 in my inventory) before I gave Hyetta a second grape. 5) I gave Hyetta the third grape and explained what the grapes were before I fought Vyke, but did not revisit her post vomiting and exhaust her dialogue to move her to Bellum Church until I had slain Vyke.
