Redmane Castle

castle redmane small

A small castle that is heavily guarded at the castle's outskirts by Radahn Knights and Soldiers. The Redmane Castle serves as the gathering point for warriors alike who are wanting to participate in the Radahn Festival.

Redmane Castle is a Location in Elden Ring. The Redmane Castle is found in Caelid. It can be reached by crossing the bridge in-front of the "Impassable Greatbridge" site of grace. Follow the path upwards to the castle gate. Circle behind the castle using the path on the right hand side. After disposing of some enemies, there is a gap that you must jump across, it is recommended to use your mount for this section. There will be a small series of stairs leading to a shortcut, a door that can be opened only from the other side. To access the castle itself, you must climb up the ladder near said shortcut.

Radahn Festival

Redmane Castle has two states. At the start of the game, it will be populated with enemies, all rooms will be reachable, and the final plaza will contain the Misbegotten Warrior & Crucible Knight boss fight. However, at some point during the game you will trigger the Radahn Festival which will change the state of the castle considerably. There are three ways to trigger this:

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Once the festival is active, all the soldiers in the castle and its surroundings will vanish, the waygate from the Impassable Greatbridge site of grace to the Chamber Outside the Plaza site of grace will activate, a number of doors will be locked, and the plaza will contain a number of NPCs preparing to partake in the Radahn Festival, including Blaidd and Alexander. Finger Maiden Thorelina will give you the Polite Bow gesture if you speak with her. Talking to Jerren in the plaza will allow you to battle Starscourge Radahn. Once Radahn is defeated and you speak to Jerren inside the chapel beyond the plaza (and then rest at a site of grace), the Radahn Festival will end and the castle will return to its original state.

Redmane Castle Walkthrough

This walkthrough describes how to traverse the castle during the Radahn Festival. There are additional items, including the Red-Hot Whetblade, available when the festival is not taking place.

The fastest way to reach Redmane Castle is by using the waygate teleporter found on the watchtower of Fort Gael [Map Coordinates]. When you arrive, you'll find yourself outside the fortified outskirts of the castle. Work your way around the cliffs via southwest since the main gate is locked. By the cliffs, you should see a makeshift tower used to store weapons. Climb down two ladders and you'll find a corpse that can be pillaged to acquire x1 Smithing Stone [6]. Climb back up both ladders and continue along the cliffs of the castle.

Along the path of the cliffs, you'll encounter Giant Bat enemies. Keep moving southeast as you reach the top and around the castle where you'll come across a field full of tombstones and large tree without its leaves. You'll encounter a few enemies here such as more Giant Bats and a Poisonous Bat by the tree, but more importantly, a Teardrop Scarab, hiding between some tombstones on the left. Make sure to quickly kill the Teardrop Scarab to obtain x1 Ash of War: Flaming Strike - make sure to check behind the tree to find x1 Miquella's Lily and x8 Smoldering Butterfly that is looted off a corpse that is sitting against a tombstone.

From here, use the ladder to climb to the top, you don't need to take the stairs since the door at the top is locked and can only be opened from the other side. At the top of the ladder, make a left and simply follow the path of the rooftop section until you reach another ladder on the west that you'll need to climb down. At the bottom, you'll first encounter a Zombie Dog roaming. Kill it and enter the stable-like room on the left where you'll see multiple Commoner enemies resting (most of them will not attack you unless you do). Inside that room you can loot two corpses to find x5 Armorer's Cookbook [5] and x1 Smithing Stone [5]. Don't forget to unlock the door here to open the shortcut leading back to the open field with tombstones.

Go back outside, turn left and you'll see another arch doorway. Inside that room, there is a single Executioner-looking enemy that wields a crossbow. You can kill it to acquire some Runes but there isn't anything inside and the door here is locked. Use the bricks and rubble to jump over a low part of the wall and down into the clearing below.

Upon landing, look to your left to find a guardhouse. Go up the stairs and check behind the wooden crates to find x1 Golden Rune [6] that is looted off a corpse. Go back down and head east first towards the entrance of the plaza, there are two Lion Guardian enemies at the north section leading to the main gate that we can ignore for now. Midway up the steps, you'll see a waygate teleporter. Walk past it, and continue through the courtyard past the wooden stakes and go inside the room on the right to find the Chamber Outside the Plaza Site of Grace. After discovering the site, go back outside and check the west section. Go up the stairs to another rooftop where you can find a corpse sitting against some wooden crates. Loot it to find x1 Smithing Stone [4].

Go back down towards the west part of the castle where you'll see a hangman's gallows. You'll notice that you are on high ground and you can attack the two Lion Guardian enemies below that are roaming around the castle's main gate. Killing both of the enemies rewards you with Runes along with x2 Somber Smithing Stone [4], x2 Beast Blood, x4 Old Fang. Jump down once the area is clear and loot a corpse that's on a pile of dead bodies and skeletons to find x1 Smithing Stone [4]. To the northwest, left of the main gate there is a set of stairs leading to a room full of crates and barrels. At the back of this room on the left is the Armorer's Cookbook [4]

Check the tree near the gate to find x1 Arteria Leaf and a one Skeletal Slime enemy. Most of the buildings here with the doors are locked, so check the area near the south corner to find a glowing Teardrop Scarab, which will refill your flask if needed. If you haven't discovered the Imapssable Greatbridge site, head back to the waygate teleporter that you passed before, and use it to transport yourself past the heavily-guarded greatbridge, near the Impassable Greatbridge site [Map Coordinates] - after touching the grace, use the waygate to transport back to the castle's plaza.

From the waygate, head north through the doorway, past the site of grace, and enter the plaza where you'll encounter the NPCs gathered for the Radahn Festival. Talk to Therolina to get the Polite Bow gesture, then go north, up the stairs, then towards the right where you'll see a large sculpture of a chalice. There's a body on the left side of it - loot it to find x1 Somber Smithing Stone [5]. When you are ready to start the festival, turn back in the direction you just came from and speak to Jerren on the right side of the stairs. A cutscene will trigger.

After the cutscene, run up the stairs opposite the crier and enter the chapel where you can loot a body for x1 Smithing Stone [6]. Leave the chapel via the eastern door, and you'll see a lift. Ride it down and at the bottom you'll find a waygate teleporter and a Stake of Marika next to it. The waygate teleporter will transport you to the boss arena at Wailing Dunes, where you will fight Starscourge Radahn.

      So the 2 bosses (misbegotten and knight) are gone if the festival is active? I have NEVER reached this castle without the festival active. :/

      • Anonymous

        With no festival, there's a Redmane Knight on the rooftop of the plaza grace, he's wielding a greatsword imbued with flame (even when he's idle). I wasted 2 hours to get the weapon drop, only to find that it's just a common Knight Greatsword, and no flame whatsoever, bummer.

        • Anonymous

          If you've activated the festival but need to get the enemies back for the items then do Sellen's questline and when Jerren leaves the enemies will return.

          • Anonymous

            Such a weird decision for basically all the enemies to despawn if you reach Altus before the castle. It feels so boring just walking to the Grace with no resistance whatsoever.

            • Anonymous

              So after reading this and seeing many comments, I'm curious why it matters to so many to get to the castle before the festival. If you can still explore it after, why are people upset that they have to do it later?

              • I lol'd at the line "It can be reached by crossing the bridge in-front of the "Impassable Greatbridge" site of grace."

                I guess they achieved the no spoiler aim? Haha.

                  There is another way to trigger the radhan festival which is the earliest and the way most people will start the festival by accident. Once you kick alexander out of the first hole in limgrave, if you expire his dialog he will trigger the festival. The way to avoid starting the festival with alexander, because you can still get him out without him triggering the event, just make sure you dont talk to him after getting him out of the hole. As soon as he speaks of the festival he is going to trigger it. If you dont trigger the event, Alexander can be found in the gael tunnel. This way you can explore redmane castle before the radhan festival and get access to the red-hot whetblade, the cookbooks and the ruin greatsword (if you kill the duo boss) before having to fight radhan.

                    Not sure if my game session was bugged but many of the doors were unopenable and most of the knights weren't inside or outside the keep until after I beat Ragadan. After I killed him it was populated with knights.

                      This worked for me. Med shield WITH Barricade WA) and some daggers or quick offensive throwables/casts ready. Cast Latenna Ashes when you enter the Duo boss fight. Barricade shield and counter attacks to will finish the job on the Misbegotten cnut really quickly. (fire damage also helps big time). Next, equip your throwables and keep the knight focused on you whilst your summoned ashes picks away at him. Fairly low risk, as far as duo boss fights go. Barricade WA really helps here.

                        Place frustrated me a lot when I first got to it because it took so long of a travel to get to the first site of grace inside.
                        You have to sprint passed or clear out the knights, take the teleporter, sprint passed or fight all the soldiers and giant, kill all the bare, deal with the dog and the executioner and then make it through to the site of grace and if you die at any point its hell go go back through. More especially BEFORE you know where the site is m becsuse theres a couple of other enemies you can run into and paths to take.

                          The Virgin Abductor (if festival isnt active) can be easily cheesed. There is a set of wooden stairs nearby that overlooks the courtyard (kill the guards there first), and if you aggro the Abductor from there it wont be able to figure out how to get up and its head will be poking out through the planks. You will ignore the majority of its attacks.

                            So I was just wandering around the courtyard prior to activating the radahn fight and somehow the lion guardians died because I got their souls and items out of the blue

                              I got confused, by the time I played de game you just entered the festival without trouble, now theres the duo that got me stuck and gave me the ruin greatsword, but was it really necessary to add those two?

                                activating the grand lift of dectus does not activate the party mode in redmane castle, the teleporter remained closed until I rested at a grace in altus plateu.

                                  You can take out the Crucible Knight from outside the arena. if you make your way up to where the Redmane Soldiers/Knights are above the fog door, there's a brazier you can hope onto and pelt the Crucible Knight with some Serpent Arrows. It does take about the full stack to take him down.

                                        activating the lift does not get rid of the pre festival misbegotten warrior and crucible knight, my hypothesis is the "any grace in altus" one

                                          Having progressed Ranni's quest (she is sleeping in her chair right now), having Blaidd in Siotra River and Alexander on Rear Gael Tunnel Entrance, what worked for me was
                                          1. Defeat the duo boss fight
                                          2. Go forward to the throne room and talk to Jerren who is sitting on a chair. He talked to me about Iji and Ranni
                                          3. Talk to Iji about Jerren (also learnt some nice info about Ranni). Exhaust dialogue here. Eventually he will tell you to take Blaidd with you
                                          4. Talk to Blaidd on Siotra River telling him the whole story. Exhaust dialogue here too.
                                          5. Teleport Back to the Redmane castle (Chamber outside the plaza)
                                          (after step 4, I went to Alexander in the tunnel and he had left the place, finally)

                                            Activating the Lift isn't enough to trigger the festival, you have to go to a site of grace in the Altus Plateau. The highway junction worked for me, I'd assume any would work.

                                              I can confirm that the Erdtree Gazing Hill site if grace triggers the festival. Went to Redmane and got the site outside the plaza, no festival. Activated Dectus lift and immediately went back to Redmane, no festival still. Activated Erdtree Gazing Hill and went back to Redmane, festival is on!

Just an fyi for anyone that wants that talisman before clearing Redmane pre-festival.

                                                • Wish I had known about the doors getting locked before I went to Altus for the perfumer's kit. Had to cheese Radahn just to get the Armorer's Cookbook 4 since I was making a low level build.

I think it's also locked me out from getting the red-hot whetblade and cookbook, anyone else having this problem?

                                                              After defeating the duo-boss fight, turn aroung and walk back towards the waygate, turn right at the flamethrowers and walk towards the doorway/the room containing the red-hot wetblade (Warning: An Iron Maiden will charge you once you pass the tree from the right). Going up the stairs in that room, will bring you to the walls/upper section again. Immediately after the stairs turn left and follow the patch over some wooden planks to loot another chest (Warning: You will face 5 Soldiers and 1 Knight on your way to the chest.) As i`m a Pepega i forgot which item dropped from the chest ... ^^`Maybe someone who remembers can add the info in the reply.

                                                                Is there any way to access the rest of Redmane castle after completing Ranni's quest and revisiting her tower? Blaidd's at her tower, and for spoilerific reasons he's not going to be able to help me sneak in the front way anymore.

                                                                • Anonymous

Dunno if that's an update or because of the quest progression.

                                                                  • Anonymous

Use poison/scarlet rod/frost arrows untill the effect kicks in as your normal arrow hits wont deal any dmg. wait untill last tick to safe arrows. repeat if needed. after hes dead you can enter the arena and only fight Lion Misbegotten Warrior.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

When i came back to fight them they both disappeared and the festival had begun-thank god- I hated them

This means that if you are quick enough at dodging you can run around the courtyard and they'll essentially fight each other. Running around like a coward got one of them completely killed and the other down to about 10% health without having to attack them at all. Not elegant, but it's a strategy.

Warped in there to see soldiers everywhere and a boss fight through the door while trying to check with the NPC I met there before during the Radhan questline stuff. I mean I shouldn't be surprised, this is what it's normal state was, but as someone whose first experience was most of this place being cleared out, it was a little bit of a shock.

I accepted to join Ranni the Witch, and was exploring Siofra River because of Blaidd, but reached a dead end. So I decided to explore Redmane. No waygate was active. At Redmane Castle Plaza were two bosses that you had to fight. After that (no festival still) I went up the stairs after the doorway and talk to Witch-hunter Jerren and he said something like "how did you get here with the gates locked" and then asked me if I liked festivals, i misclicked "No". So I came here to find out if I lost the boss for good. After reading here, I decided to talk to Iji, and he said I should go with blaidd to the festival. And now theres a festival in Redmane Castle Plaza.

There are incorrect instructions, literally everywhere, including stating left when right on quite a few occasions despite the short page. The order of directions is often questionable, too, and the site of graces location description will likely lead to far more confusion than simply telling them to go from the base of the ladder/shortcut room over wall into courtyard, then run right straight up stairs and follow path past all wooden barricades and past the flamethrowers. Site of graces is in room just past the very visible golden fog door as you run up path. Entire sections and important items are completely left out of the article. Some special enemies like the giant and Iron Virgin should be mentioned to simply avoid as they have no reward or even item drops at all. Cheers to whoever wrote what does exist as, for the most part, it is better than nothing and points out key bits like shortcut and some items.

                                                                                                      • Anonymous

Once you have done all the talk options with the guy fast travel back to the bridge grace site and the castle will reset to the dungeon so you can kill the bosses for it.

The festival starts at a certain point in the game in which (almost) every enemy despawns in the castle. I'm pretty sure this is not a bug. Which is why there are no bosses and the castle is pretty unexplorable. They welcomed all the champions and directed them to the plaza. Correct me if I'm wrong.

                                                                                                                Maybe this will help? I finished Liurnia, have only 1 half of the dectus. I went to Ranni's rise, accepted her quest. Went to Sofria (which I had already complered) and talked to Blaiid. Then went to Redmane castle and was able to warp inside, into the festival, and take on Radahn.

                                                                                                                I've done nothing in Ranni's quest aside from getting it, have not been to the Altus plateau, or any volcano (?). 1 half of medal. I honestly have a feeling that what triggers the festival is after receiving ranni's quest and going to talk to blaiid in Sofria, he then spawns at Redmane where you can fight Radahn.

The medallion-trigger may be replaceable with reaching atlus platue, as i did get there through being abducted to the volcano manor.

If you go through the area early, you instead fight a crucible knight and a misbegotten. As for the conditions for activating the festival, some one please god figure that out because every source is different and wrong.

If you go through the area early, you instead fight a crucible knight and a misbegotten. As for the conditions for activating the festival, some one please god figure that out because every source is different and wrong.

Exhaust his dialogue and then teleport back to chamber outside the plaza to reload zone. All the doors will unlock and enemies will have spawned. And the door to the boss area will be a fog gate with crucible knight and misbegotten.

There's a single pile of bricks on the rooftop just past the midway site of grace where you can summon Torrent. Moving basically at all kicks you off, but you can jump on the tarps nearby for the most part. This is completely useless as far as I can tell since you've already reached everywhere within double jump distance, but it's a cute photo-op with your horse, I guess.

                                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

After you kill Radahn, the crier guy is sitting in the chair in the cathedral building just before the elevator to Radahn. Exhaust his dialogue then reset your world by fast travelling to either site of grace, your enemies will be back and the doors will be open. This restores access to the red hot whetblade.

When I entered the castle, it was virtually devoid of enemies and all the doors were locked, so it seems like taking the lift for sure triggers this oddity.

It's the guy who was announcing the festival up above. He'll be in the room right before the elevator after you kill Radahn. Exhaust his dialog, go somewhere else, wait some time, and then the castle will have reset

At some point they reappeared, but not after resting after defeating radahn. Any clue what triggered it?

She tells me to go to the festival. I'm in ng and never did this on my first playthrough but it worked, so I'm assuming there's another way to trigger the event? I also got both pieces of the dectus medallion before finding sellen but that didn't start the festival either.

Did Ranni's quest up until moonlight altar area (not sure if this matters). Returned to Ranni's rise and killed Blaidd. Killing him then teleporting to the bridge outside Redmane seemed to have reset the castle. Finished the area after that.

But the portals to the castle were still open and the festival still active.

                                                                                                                                                      What I did however.. was reach the Plateau through the ravine. I guess that can be a third trigger?

Note I did this after the completion of the questline and talking to the Jester knight again at the church inside Redmane. I then took the portal out and made my way to the castle and followed the cliffs.

I hoped to reset the castle by talking to Blaidd but since I already finished Ranni's questline I had to kill him. Now the castle is still empty for me. Does anyone have an idea of how I can reset the castle?
