Iron Fist Alexander (AKA Alexander, Warrior Jar) is an NPC in Elden Ring. Iron Fist Alexander is a large Living Jar who set out from his home one day in search of adventure, seeking to become a mighty warrior. He also becomes available as an NPC Summon cooperater where he can fight alongside players

 

I am Alexander, also known as the Iron Fist. And as you can see, I'm stuck here.

 

Iron Fist Alexander Information in Elden Ring

Alexander is first found stuck in the ground, asking for help. If you talk to him, he will kindly ask you to help him out. You can choose to either help him out or simply leave him there in the ground.

 

Iron Fist Alexander Location in Elden Ring

Iron Fist Alexander is found in multiple locations as the story progresses:

  1.  DO NOT SKIP STEP: Alexander can be found in Northern Stormhill, West to the river and North of the Agheel Lake North Site of Grace. [Map Link ]
  2. He can next be found in Gael Tunnel. This tunnel is in the border, between Caelid and Limgrave. He can be found past a door, and once he is talked to he expresses his desire to move on to Redmane Castle. [Elden Ring Interactive Map Link] If the Radahn Festival has been triggered, Alexander will disappear and appear at Redmane Castle.
  3. Talk to him again at Redmane Castle, he will talk about his excitement about the incoming encounter with Radahn. [Elden Ring Interactive Map Link]
  4. He can then be summoned for the boss fight against Starscourge Radahn. If he has not been interacted with prior to this, he will show up at the festival anyway and introduce himself. Before moving to his next location, he can be found scavenging at Starscourge Radahn's Site of Grace. Here he must be talked to exhausting all dialogue to continue his questline. [Elden Ring Interactive Map Link]
  5. Found in Liurnia of the Lakes, just south of Carian Study Hall. Follow the path south from the Artist's Shack Site of Grace. Alexander will call out for help as the player gets closer to his location. He will ask you to make him "slippery." Use an Oil Pot or Roped Oil Pot to free him. This step can be skipped by going to Mt. Gelmir after the Radahn festival. [Elden Ring Interactive Map Link]
  6. Found near the Seethewater Terminus Site of Grace at a lava lake south of Fort Laiedd in Mt. Gelmir. Alexander is sitting in the lake behind a Magma Wyrm. Alexander can be spoken to from the safety of the rock in the lava lake. Upon exhausting all of his dialogue, he will give the player the Jar.[Elden Ring Interactive Map Link]
  7. Can be summoned for the boss fight against Fire Giant. To find him, take the right (Southern) chain. His sign will appear only after entering the area. [Elden Ring Interactive Map Link]
  8. Found in Crumbling Farum Azula. From the Dragon Temple Lift grace (can be accessed by using two Stonesword Keys), go past the plaza full of undead up the flight of stairs, turn right and you'll see two square bracket shaped archways. Jump on the archway on the left (closest to the sleeping dragon) to get over to the other side. Alexander can be found directly on the flat arena after crossing the crumbling tower. [Elden Ring Interactive Map Link] He will challenge you to a warrior's duel, and if you win, he will reward you with Alexander's Innards and Shard of Alexander. If you lose, he will continue letting you challenge him until you win.

 

Iron Fist Alexander Questline: How to complete Iron Fist Alexander's Quest

  • DO NOT SKIP STEP: You can help Iron Fist Alexander out by hitting him a few times on the back with any weapon. While you hit him, he will express some pain, but then he'll tell you to keep trying.

Alexander delivers some words of encouragement.

 

  • You will eventually push him out, he will stand up and congratulate you, seeming to be okay. As he is pushed out of the ground, you will receive the Triumphant Delight Gesture. Alexander in turn rewards you with a piece of Exalted Flesh for your efforts and then hints at his next destination. He tells you of Redmane Castle in Caelid where a combat festival is taking place.
  • Alexander's next location is in Gael Tunnel, found from the rear entrance that borders Limgrave and Caelid. You can also find him from the other side of the Tunnel by venturing to the boss room and opening the one-way door. He'll again mention the festival in Caelid. This step can be skipped if you have already triggered the Radahn Festival from Blaidd's questline.
  • Alexander can be found in the plaza of Redmane Castle with the other participants. He is one of the cooperators that can be summoned during the fight against Starscourge Radahn.
  • After Radahn's defeat, Alexander can be found just south of the Site of Grace that appears in the boss arena, scavenging the remains of fallen soldiers to strengthen himself.
  • Alexander's next location is in Liurnia of the Lakes, just south of the Carian Study Hall. He'll call out to the player if they come close, and is stuck in a hole in the ground again. Smacking him a few times like before won't do any good, and he says he'll need something to make him slippery. Apply an Oil Pot on him and another good smack should dislodge him. He'll reward you with an Exalted Flesh, then talk about heading north to strengthen himself even further. You can skip this step if you've already visited Mt. Gelmir.
  • Alexander is found in a pool of lava in the west side of Mt. Gelmir, behind a Magma Wyrm. The player can safely talk to him by walking on one of the spires jutting out of the lava pool. He awards the Jar as a token of friendship and seeks to go to the forge of the giants in the east.
  • He appears as a NPC cooperator against the Fire Giant. His summon sign is located within the arena, near either of its entrances.
  • Alexander's final step is in Crumbling Farum Azula. He can be seen standing atop a large ruin as you descend the floating debris towards the Dragon Temple. If you've accessed the Dragon Temple Lift, you can find him by platforming across the debris on the upper levels of the area. Alexander will request one last duel. Defeat him, and he rewards you with Alexander's Innards and the Shard of Alexander.

 

Dialogue in Elden Ring: Iron Fist Alexander

Introduction

  • Hello-o? Can you hear me?
    Help me! I'm stuck.
    Hello? Hellooo! Anyone! (repeating)
  • Oh my stars I'm so happy to see you!
    I am Alexander, also known as the Iron Fist. And as you can see, I'm stock here.
    Please, can you help me out of this?

Choosing "Help him out"

  • My thanks! a thousand thanks! Just give me a good smack from the rear, with something nice and big.
  • Put those doubts to rest, I'll be just fine. I'm very well trained.
    Give it your all, I say!

Talking again without helping

  • Come on, give me a good smack from behind with something nice and big.
    I'll pop clean out. I'm sure of it!

Choosing "Don't help"

  • I see. More's the pity. No, no, don't apologize. Despite my appearance, I am a chip off a greater jar. I'll pop out eventually, just you wait.

After "Don't help" and returning (female):

  • Ahh, what's that look good lady? Are you willing to help me out after all?

After attacking him in Limgrave

  • Ngh!
  • What are you playing at?
  • Wait, I see. I see it now. Humans all lose their wits, eventually.
  • (On player kill) A finer battle was never witnessed. How do you fancy joining the lads inside, eh?

Killing him at Limgrave

  • How could this... Was my whole existence... just a crock?

Upon getting unstuck

  • Ah!
    Ouuch!
    Ahhh!
  • "Ahh! Well played good lady/sir. Well Played. Though that mighty wallop of your almost spelt the end of me!
    Ha ha ha ha! Well, I'm out now, and that's what counts.
    I thank you, and as a token of my appreciation, I'd like you to have this".
    [Hands over x1 Exalted Flesh]
  • "Once again, the pleasure is mine. I am the warrior jar known as Alexander. Iron Fist Alexander, in fact.
    I journey to the east, where I intend to further my education in the ways of war.
    Beyond these lands lie the scarlet rot-blighted Caelid Wilds.
    And upon their southern edge is Redmane Castle, in which a festival of combat is being held.
    I'd heard whispers of such festivities before... Doesn't the notion set your breast aflutter!
    Ha ha ha ha!"
  • I'm heading eastward. To Redmane Castle on the southern edge of the scarlet rot-blighted Caelid Wilds.
    I've heard there's to be a festival held there.

 Encounter at Rear Gael Tunnel Entrance, before unlocking door to Gael Tunnel

  • Oh I hadn't expected to see your face again.
    Are you heading to the festival of combat, too?

    Oh, no need to be coy with me.
    Judging by the fine wallop you gave the old backside earlier, I would venture you're something of a warrior yourself.
    The mere thought of such a festival gets the blood pumping, eh!
    Now, now, according to my calculations, passing through this road should lead us to the Caelid Wilds.
    But however you slice it, it seems we've reached a dead end.
    I'm sorry to have raised your hopes.
    It seems my calculations must have been off...
  • I was created to be a warrior vessel.
    Many great warriors reside within me, ever dreaming of becoming a great champion.
    It's my destiny. And the reason for which I quest.
    It is my ordeal, you could say. To test myself, to better myself, to fell ever greater foes.
    And then, one day, we'll be a single great champion. The greatest of them all!
    What do you think, eh? How do you rate my changes?
    Heh heh...

Second encounter at Gael Tunnel, or if encountering after going through from Caelid side

  • ...!
  • The esteemed warrior. Where did you spring from? This was supposed to be a dead end, I'm sure of it. What's going on here? A door, from thin air! Well, stranger things happen at sea, or so I'm told, but onward! To the Caelid Wilds. Gosh, that dead-end had me rather stumped! Heh...heh..
  • It's time I set off. To the festival al Redmane Castle on the southern edge of the scarlet rot-blighted Caelid Wilds. Doesn't the thought just set your heart aflutter!

Before fighting Radahn at Redmane Castle

  • Ah, you came, how delightful! Indeed, I thought I might find you here.
    By the by, do you know for whom this festival is being held? Well, it is none other than General Radahn himself!
    To think, I could face a great champion of the Shattering, a demigod in the flesh...
    In truth I quiver at the thought, such is his frightful repute. But! The fear simply assures me the ordeal is worth undertaking!
    Now, be sure to get a good vantage, my friend. I, Iron Fist Alexander, do hereby vow to unflinchingly brave this ordeal.

After fighting Radahn at Redmane Castle

  • A-ah, hello there. It was a battle marvellously fought. You are well and truly a champion, friend.
    I, on the other hand, am nothing but a crock. One hit was all it took to crack me, and for my insides to come spilling out.
    After that, I hid like a coward. And as such, I can hardly stand to face one such as you.
  • ...But don't you think I've given up just yet. As luck would have it, there's a veritable mountain of warriors' bodies right here.
    If I can just squeeze this bunch down inside me, I'll be a mighty warrior again in no time.
    And you know... The bodies found here are exceedingly fine.
    Who could expect any less from the very warriors who fought in the Shattering, the greatest of all wars!
    Just you wait and see, friend. I'll grow even stronger! Just you wait, when next we meet! Heh heh...

At Liurnia of the Lakes

  • Ahh, hello! How nice it is to see a friendly face! As you can surmise, I've got myself stuck in another hole. Would you mind helping me out, again? 
  • (Help him) My thanks in advance, I know you're the man for the job! You know what to do, hm?
    Give me a good smack from behind with something nice and big.
    Don't worry about my wound sustained at the festival. I'm stuck back together good and proper! Just give it your all!

Releasing him at Liurnia

  • Nngh! Oh, yes! That's the ticket!
  • My thanks! To you and your razor-sharp wits. As a token of my thanks, I'd like you to have this.
  • Deary me, I'm oilier than a toad! There were countless oil jars back where I'm from actually.
    And now I know what it's like to be one of them! Heh heh...
  • Yes, indeed, I too have a home. Though it is one to which I have vowed not to return.
    So, I thought I might look out from atop the cliff, but as I drew closer and closer...
    Pow! Wouldn't you know it, I was perfectly stuck in that blasted hole.
    I can feel the warriors inside admonishing me for my mawkishness. To walk the path of champions, one cannot cleave to the past!
    I'm headed to the fiery mount in the north. I can strengthen myself there, without fear of cracking this vessel.
    I will forge myself anew in its flames!

At Mt. Gelmir

  • Ngh! Rnnngh! O mountain of fire! Bake me in your flames!
  • Nnngh! Ah, good lady/sir, what business might you have in such a place as this?
    I hardly think you're here to temper yourself with flame, considering that flesh form of yours.
    Your timing though, is impeccable as ever! I've been making just the thing for you on my journey here.
    Take it, I'm sure it'll suit you to a tee.
    [Hands over Jar]
  • But oh, it's hardly more than lukewarm here. I won't be able to temper my body such that it'll never crack again.
    Perhaps I'll head eastward. There's an old saying I've caught wind of.
    "Above the lofty clouds, the icy giant's peak doth soar, here lieth the flame of ruin, which ever burning roars."

At Crumbling Farum Azula

  • Ah, I see you've finally made it here yourself. The city hanging in the air is slowly crumbling. What an incredible place we find ourselves.
    But that aside, you're certainly a force to be reckoned with, eh.
    I doubt there's a single soul who could've handled that giant, other than you. It was practically a god...
    Of course I count myself, the great Alexander, among the many.
    Which means, I've but one thing to ask of you. Would you kindly undertake my ordeal?
    Come and tell me when you're ready. I've been longing to fight a warrior as accomplished as you.
  • You are ready then, I take it? Then let us begin! I am the great jar warrior, Iron Fist Alexander! Lend me strength, O warriors within! Let us become one champion, together!

After winning the duel

  • As I suspected... Victory... was impossible. This vessel... was found lacking...
  • My thanks, I knew you were the stuff of champions. It was a marvellous battle.
    I implore you, take what I bequeath...from inside me... All vessels are destined to one day break.
    But the great Alexander lived as a warrior to his last! Ha ha ha ha!

 

Elden Ring Notes & Trivia for Iron Fist Alexander

  • Alexander speaks and sounds similar to Siegmeyer and Siegward of Catarina from Dark Souls and Dark Souls 3, though those 2 share a different voice actor than Alexander, therefore his character could possibly be a reference to the Catarina Knights of games past.
  • According to the Shard of Alexander, it would seem that Alexander had taken parts of a “red-haired champion” into himself, making him mightier than before. Radahn would easily fit this description, seeing as Alexander was busy scraping up bodies to fill himself once more, after fighting Radahn. It would be easy to assume that he had taken parts of Radahn and shoved it inside of him.
  • He is an available NPC Summon against Starscourge Radahn during the Radahn festival and can also be summoned against the Fire Giant. For his conditions,  Progress in his questline and he will be available as a summon. Make sure he is not stuck in his first location or stuck South of the Carian Study Hall in Liurnia. His summon sign will be at the fog gate entrance close to the Site of Grace before facing the Fire Giant.

      Quest is currently broken he is not appearing at Mt Gelmir or Farum after the festival. Why doesn't Fromsoft ever finish their games?

      • Anonymous

        just checked after talking to him at mt gelmir and it looks like you need to kill fire giant before he moves to farum azula; no wrong-warping to get shard of alexander pre-mountaintops

        • Anonymous

          I was having trouble finding Alexander to catch up on his quest line and ended up finding him near the grace after defeating Radahn.

          Once I spoke to him there he moved onto the lava lake in Mt Gelmir.

          • Anonymous

            He appeared at Farum Azula although I accidentally missed out some steps.

            However after killing him I only got the inferior version (Warrior Jar Shard).

            Is there anyone having the same issue?

            • Anonymous

              Honestly he should have had his own boss fight. Hopefully in the DLC we'll get to fight Jar Barin all grown up after recieving Alex's Innards

                So turns out I'm an idiot. I was waiting months to finish my second playthrough as Alexander was bugged at Radahn's and that was all I had left to do. I'm not doing a 3rd playthrough yet but want to get everything so I was waiting till they fixed it. Since I only bought a ps5 for elden ring I never figured out how auto-updating worked. Turns out I hadn't updated in months. Did it manually and his quest was all fixed. Hope this helps anyone stuck.

                    Last night, I killed Alexander at Radahn's arena because he was stuck there, which was a known bug, to get the Warrior Jar Shard, and resigned myself to getting the Shard of Alexander next NG cycle.

                    This morning, I awoke to learn that my crimes were totally unnecessary and the bug was patched after I went to bed.

                    Genuinely have never been sadder playing these games.

                      so he helped me against fire giant, then he decide to went back to Radaun to dig and not spawn in farum azula

                        So, you want to tell me, that because i skipped the first location accidentally, the questline will break and I'll miss on a gesture till NG+? I'm mostly not one for complaining about quest design, but this has to be a bug, because if it's intentional, then the designer must have some problem.

                        Guess it's time to reset my char then...

                          i need to know if this has happened to anyone else. so he's been stuck at radahns since i got this game, but today I saw he finally moved and I found him in farum azula. we fight so I could finally get his talisman, but right away something was wrong. dudes way too strong and I was hardly doing any damage to him. I start panicking and slip up and he lands an attack that one shots me. and i have 60 vigor and defensive armor, buffs and talismans. has this happened to anyone else??? this is a NG character too, but somehow this alexander is also showing up in the worlds of other characters. i already beat him on these accounts too. the weirdest thing is that theres a new character on my account that i don't remember making. its named alexander, and the portrait is a jar like him. the level on it is just 999999999999999 all across my tv. I thought it was an easter egg but when I load the character the game just crashes. I think theres also a burn in image on my tv screen that has the same shape as him, it gets bigger everyday :( I really don't know what is happening, its really frustrating

                            ARGH! Is there any way to get the Companion Jar talisman if he's bugged and stuck at Starscourge Radahn? I didn't get it on my first playthrough because I'm an idiot and didn't return to Jarburg after giving the little dude Alex's innards, and now it looks like I'm going to miss it again. It's the only talisman I have left! This is my completionist nightmare right now...

                              I forgot to speak to him at the festival and now he is stuck in Radahns boss room. I didn't speak to him at first location, spoke to him in Gael tunnel, forgot at Redmane, he was next to carian study hall so i did that part, but then he returned to Radahn room and won't move. i will go to Fire Giant and see if hi sign is there, maybe summoning him will reset his quest and send him to Gelmir.

                                        I can't get him to leave Radhan's arena. I had already completed the Fire Giant encounter, and some of Farum Azula, when I started this quest. I first completed his dialogue at Radhan's arena, then did the Liurnia encounter with the oil pot, then I left to seethwater to do that encounter, but he didn't show up. He also will not show up at Farum Azula. What should I do?

                                          He wasn't stuck in a hole nor in the tunnels... Maybe cus I got a half of the medalion? I ventured thru Caleid but I doubt I started the festival.

                                            I accidentally killed him in Gael Tunnel. I am typically terrified as I play Elden Ring. I saw a big scary pot and just started swinging. I regret it though.

                                              On NG+, He was stuck on the last playthrough and couldn't get his upgraded shard. I actually see the hole he was stuck in as if I already released him. He won't even show at Magma Wyrm location... Any ideas??

                                                Was able to get the Lunaria encounter despite having been to and unlocked many sites of graces in mount Gelmir.
                                                Maybe it was because I hadn't gone back there after defeating Radahn until after I already freed him with oil.
                                                I didn't even know about the encounter in Lunaria, I was just clearing the area south of him and riding the road the the grace up north.

                                                  Curiously, in my original save file which I completed before the first major patch release, and is still on NG difficulty, I appear to have received both the Shard of Alexander and the Warrior Jar Shard for completing Alexander's quest line.

                                                  They appear to have patched his item drops at some point.

                                                  As per what the wiki states, all of my other playthroughs have been in agreement on this, as they been played on more the recent patches, and thus far have only received the Shard of Alexander and his innards for completing his questline.

                                                    i was able to skip the first step of meeting him (not on purpose) on my first and now on my second playthrough (patch 1.04) and was still capable of completing his quest dont know how you got the idea not to skip his first encounter but i guess its either a very specific thing or inconsistent

                                                      I wish we got him as Spirit Ashes at the end of his questline. I want to kill a god with my best jar-friend.

                                                        Not Sure if this quest was patched or not but I skipped the first step on accident. Killed Radahn Talked to alexander jar after the battle exhausted his dialog as usual went to Liurnia of lakes splashed him with oil and spanked him out of the hole with my great sword..... I had previously already killed the magma wvyrm so after freeing him in Liurnia I went straight to that area and ge was tempering himself in tge magma. Spoke to him there and went to kill the fire giant. After killing the fire giant he didn't show up :( So I headed to the crumbling Azula and I saw him on rhe platform across the way before you get to the dragon temple. Worked my way over to him engaged in some Jolly cooperational dueling and he gave me his shard.

                                                          I'm not sure why, but out of all the quests where the person dies at the end, Alexander was the only one that really upset me, because all he wanted to be was a great warrior, and he was, the only person he had to prove it to was himself. You were a good warrior, Alexander!

                                                          • In case anyone else ran into problems getting Alexander to appear in Mt. Gelmir as I did, even though you thought you'd followed all the steps, be sure to return to Radahn's arena (NOT in the castle courtyard but actually in the battlefield where you fought Radahn) and speak to him. He's near the Site of Grace out there. That's the part I'd somehow missed, and after speaking to him I found him at Mt. Gelmir right where he was supposed to be. Hope this helps.

                                                                He has an extra bit of dialogue if you throw the oil pot at his face. Something like "Be careful; that's my face you're aiming at!" I didn't even know he had a face! Shame on me for not assuming as much, honestly.

                                                                    • Is there a bug where he randomly attacks you as that's what happened first time i met him i helped him out of the hole listened to his dialogue then turned around for a second and then he just yells the third line in the attacked in Limgrave and just attacks me out of nowhere i had to kill him thought this was normal until i found out he had a whole questline about him

Is the implication that if he is there, that means he killed that dragon? I'm going to choose to believe it.

                                                                        • Anonymous

Or did you hear about that crumbling city? Sounds like a great spot for a duel, we could see which of us is stronger! Just try not to fall in any holes on the way there, I might not always be around to help you out haha... Alex, please. You have nothing to prove to anybody. You're stronger than you realize. Please.

It's so messed up that with how simple quests in Elden Ring are, they can't get it right.

That would help a lot of people who have been walking around the plaza trying to find him.

                                                                                          • If you don't learn The Triumphant Delight gesture from him at his first location due to advancing too far into the game (kill Godric or simply enter Liurnia before helping Alexander) then you can get another chance to earn it by helping him get unstuck later on in his quest at his 5th location in Liurnia.

Or at least the damage part of Flame of the Redmanes. My man's insane lava bath might've made him brittle but it actually gave him fire immunity.

I even suspected that this might bug his quest later down the line so I didn't even interact with him in the tunnel and instead traversed back to his initial spot to properly start the questline. Nope, he wasn't there. So here I am. hours and hours into another playthrough and I can't see his, Diallos's or Jar Bairns questlines properly concluded, or obtain their item rewards because I was a little too exploratory. Given this and the fact that in my previous playthrough Blaidd wanted to kill me at first sight, all I can say is that FromSoftware needs to address these bugged questlines as soon as possible.

Talked with him after the Festival, went to the lava pool, and now he isn't there, could it be glitched cause I killed the Fire giant before starting his quest?

                                                                                                                      • Anonymous

He never showed up at Mt. Gelmir or at Farum Azula. I've even beat Maliketh and he's still there, it sucks because the talisman you get from his quest was pretty important for my build.

                                                                                                                        • Anonymous

Imagine walking into fire giants arena and then a cutscene with Alexander triggers.

He repeats some lines, you want the one that ends in a laugh. After that he will be at the Carian Study Hall and you can continue the questline normally.

So I killed Alexander where he wanted to stay - Radahn's battlefield. Now I can't get the Companion Jar talisman either. Jarburg burns. Jar Bairn disappears on hit. He gets away, for now.

I got him all the up to redmane castle, spoke to him before and after but couldn't find him anywhere. I've searched Liurnia, Mt. Gelmir and Crumbling Faram Azula he's just vanished from my game entirely... Any clues or something I might be missing?

It seems this breaks the sequence of the quest because defeating Radahn and then speaking to Alexander is the trigger that sends him to Mount Gelmir. Doing it "out of order" may be the reason it's borked for so many of us.

This is after I killed fire giant and maliketh, and after all that I talked to him at mt. gelmir but he just moved to radahn.

                                                                                                                                                I interacted with him in Limgrave and smacked him out of his hole. I then met him at Radahn's fight, spoke to him, and summoned him. I think I spoke to him afterwards too.

                                                                                                                                                I did not engage with him again and could not find him at CFA. What I did then is went to Mt Gelmir, found him, and spoke to him and got Jar. Once I did that, he appeared at CFA. So it appears this Mt Gelmir dialogue is crucial to progressing his questline.
