Role Spirit-Tuner
Voiced by Helen Monks

Roderika is an NPC in Elden Ring. Roderika is a spirit-tuner that you will encounter at Stormhill Shack on the trail to Stormveil. She will later move to the Roundtable Hold if you progress her quest.

 

Everyone who came with me. They crossed the sea for me. They fought, for me. Heh... Only to have their arms taken. Their legs taken. Even their heads...taken. Taken and stuck to the spider. 

 

Roderika Location in Elden Ring

Roderika can be found in multiple locations:

  1. Roderika is first found at Stormhill Shack [Map Link] as an NPC called Heartbroken Maiden, and she gives you the Spirit Jellyfish Ashes.
  2. Moves to Roundtable Hold after giving her the Chrysalids' Memento OR resting at any site of grace in the Liurnia of the Lakes region. The earliest possible trigger for acquiring Roderika's Golden Seed is resting at the Lake-Facing Cliffs grace. 
  • This merchant can't be fought

 

RODERIKA QUESTLINE: HOW TO COMPLETE RODERIKA'S QUEST

  • If you talk several times to Roderika while she is found on Stormhill Shack, you will obtain Sitting Sideways pose and then she will give you the Spirit Jellyfish Ashes.
  • Deliver her message and return with a Chrystalids' Memento found on a pile of corpses within Rampart Tower. She will still be at the shack. The next time you meet Roderika will be at the Roundtable Hold. Meet her there to obtain a Golden Seed.
  • She can be found later again in Roundtable Hold as a Spirit Tuner where she is not wearing her riding hood anymore, provided that you have given her the Chrysalids' Memento and have spoken to Smithing Master Hewg.
    • If you missed Roderika at the Stormhill Shackwhen she appears at the Roundtable Hold, chose the "About Roderika" option from Smithing Master Hewg's dialogue options and continue the quest as normal.
    • If you go around Margit and acquire the Lake-Facing Cliffs Grace early, it will auto complete the quest up to this point early and not require you to go get the Chrysalids' Memento.  This may be a bug.
  • Initially, you'll find Roderika standing next to the fireplace when she moves to the Roundtable Hold. Make sure to speak to her and exhaust her dialogues to acquire x1 Golden Seed as a reward for giving her the memento.
    • If you did not give her the Chrysalids' Memento prior to her appearing at Roundtable Hold, you can still aquire the Golden Seed by visiting Stormhill Shack and looting it from where she once laid.
  • For Roderika to become an apprentice Spirit Tuner, you must speak to Smithing Master Hewg about Roderika, tell Roderika about what Hewg mentioned, and then speak to Hewg again, to convince him that Roderika wishes to learn more about her gift.
    • If you missed Roderika at the Stormhill Shack, choose the "Please" dialogue option to receive the Spirit Jellyfish Ashes.
  • After doing so, leave the hub and then return at any time, and you can find Roderika in the same room where Smithing Master Hewg is, on the left side, sitting on the floor.
  • Moving forward, if you speak to her, Roderika can now upgrade your Spirit Ashes with the skill of Spirit Tuning, provided you have the required Runes and Glovewort Items.
    • From this point, once you've leveled up any spirit ashes to +4 (doesn't matter if the ashes are special or not), you can choose to Talk to her. Doing so will give you extra dialogue, in which she proclaims that she is no longer an apprentice, and gives you the Curtsy gesture.
  • The Crimson Hood that she wore can can be obtained where you found the Chrysalids' Memento if you return to that location after completing the Questline.
  • (Warning: spoiler for major other events concerning your own character) After you burn the erdtree, she moves to the fire place in the round table. She asks you to speak to smithing Master Hewg and try to convince him to leave the roundtable.

 

Dialogue in Elden Ring: Roderika

Tip: Talk to her several times when you find her at Stormhill Shack until she gives you the Spirit Jellyfish Ashes.

Introduction

  • "Everyone's...been grafted. Everyone who came with me.
    They crossed the sea for me. They fought, for me.

    Heh... Only to have their arms taken. Their legs taken.
    Even their heads...taken.
    Taken and stuck to the spider.
    Did you know? If you're grafted by the spider, you become a chrysalid.
    It's quite the lark, when you think about it."

When visiting at Stormhill Shack

  • "You're all on your own, are you? And heading to Stormveil Castle?
    Enticed by the one in the white mask, I suppose.
    Oh, you've come to be one with the spider?

    Well, that makes us two peas in a pod. But I don't have your courage.
    It's scary, you know. Having your arms cut off. Or legs. Or your head.
    I want to be like everyone else, but I'm just too scared.
    I'm nothing but a craven."
  • "It was a pleasure to see you.
    Oh, can you pass on a message for me, if you see the little chrysalids in Stormveil Castle?
    Tell them I love them. And that, despite my craven heart, I'm sure I'll be joining their club soon enough.
    I'm finally getting the hang of this whole "pain" thing, you know."
  • "Oh, I know. Can you take this little one along with you?"
    [Gives you the Spirit Jellyfish Ashes]
    "The poor thing deserves someone braver than myself...
    And the spirits look rather fondly upon you.
    It'll be glad of your company, I think, the little'un".
  • "A pleasure to see you.
    Did you give the little chrysalids the message?
    That I love them. And that, despite my craven heart, I'm sure I'll be joining their club soon enough".

Upon receiving Chrysalids' Memento

  • "What's this? A keepsake? From my men?
    Oh, goodness me... I can't... They all...believed in me.
    They all thought I'd make something of myself. Me! Who can't do anything...
    I think I'll head to the Roundtable Hold. Perhaps I'll find my purpose there".

Upon attacking / rolling / jumping

  • "You're willing to make me a chrysalid? Ah, but I'm still a milksop craven... I can't even govern myself to step beyond the bounds of this ward. Please. You're only wasting your strength."
  • "I know you you must feel. But please, I'm not ready. Or are you like me? You're so far out of your mind with fear? You've divested yourself of all reason?"
  • "Please stop. Even if you persist, your fear will not abate."

At Roundtable Hold

  • "Greetings. Nice to see you again.
    My name is Roderika. I should have told you sooner. Isn't this place impressive, though?
    The Roundtable Hold, covert quarters of the Two Fingers, and gathering place of champions who vie to become Elden Lord.
    I never knew the guidance bestowed upon us Tarnished had such fantastic roots.
    Although, it's all a bit much for me, in truth. I'm still looking for my own purpose".
  • "Oh, and... Please, allow to me to express my thanks. For giving me that keepsake from my men.
    It was as if I was frozen with self-pity. I failed them at every turn. You have my gratitude.
    Please, take this".
    [Gives you x1 Golden Seed]
  • It's all a bit much for me, in truth.
    I'm still looking for my own purpose.

After asking Smithing Master Hewg about her

  • "A pleasure to see you. Thank goodness you're safe. I'm still looking for my own purpose.
    It's not easy, by any means, but it's what I must do."
  • (Tell her what the blacksmith said) "You're telling me I possess some kind of gift? I don't believe you. But...
    If I do have this talent, and goodness knows it would be my first...
    I suppose I should try to hone it. Shouldn't I? I'll ask Master Hewg to teach me.
    Certainly, he does appear intimidating, and holds no love for us Tarnished...
    But I know he's trapped here, at the Roundtable Hold... So...
    I can tell. He's a gentle soul, underneath it all".
  • "If I do have a talent for spirit tuning, and goodness knows that would be a surprise...
    I suppose I should try to hone it. Shouldn't I? I'll ask Master Hewg to teach me".

Next visit after asking Smithing Master Hewg to take care of her

  • "Good to see you again. Thank you very much!
    I have you to thank, don't I? For persuading Master Hewg?
    I can happily announce that he has taught me the noble toil of spirit tuning.
    I'm as yet unsure of what I might be able to accomplish, but if I might be any help to you all, I'd certainly like to try.
    And if there's an chance to ease the suffering of my dear men who were grafted..
    Well, I certainly must try.
    Roderika the spirit tuner prentice. Pleased to make your acquaintance".

Please (only available if you didn't receive the Spirit Jellyfish Ashes in Stormhill)

  • "I'd like to ask you a small favour. Can you take this little one along with you?
    They can't be summoned here. But the spirits look rather fondly upon you.
    It'll be glad of your company, I think, the little'un."

    [Gives you Spirit Jellyfish Ashes]

After a certain amount of Spirit Tuning

  • "I feel like I'm really coming to grips with spirit tuning of late.
    I can understand their yearnings, what they become drawn to...
    Master Hewg said it himself, actually, that I'm no mere prentice any longer
    Once again, I'm pleased to make your acquaintance. Roderika the certified spirit tuner".

When visiting at Roundtable Hold

  • "Greetings. Are you here for spirit tuning?"

After burning the Erdtree

  • "Take a look around. The Roundtable Hold is burned. Razed to the ground.
    Don't worry, I don't blame you. I'll continue sprit tuning just the same as before.
    Which is why I need your help persuading Master Hewg to leave.
    His roots are so knotted in this place. He won't last much longer if he stays here...
    His shackles are broken. He's a free man, now. 
    It's high time he put the Roundtable behind him"

Next visit after speaking to Smithing Master Hewg

  • "So Master Hewg won't listen to you, either.
    You have my thanks, regardless.I'll try and talk him round next time.
    I know he was given this great entreaty; to craft a weapon which could slay a god.
    Though I can't help but think of it as a curse. A fearsome curse, put on him by Queen Marika.
    And if that's the case, I'm not sure there's anything we can do"

After completing Crumbling Farum Azula and speaking to Hewg

  • "Ah. So it wasn't just me this happened to... To think he'd forget who you were, as well.
    I knew he'd burn himself out, old Hewg.
    I think we could talk him into leaving the Roundtable Hold, now.
    But maybe it's better that we don't. It's only proper that we respect his choice to stay."
  • "I'll remain with Hewg. He made me who I am today.
    I'd like to return the kindness, in whatever small way I can."
  • "Please, become Elden Lord. Hewg was always saying that you were a Lord, to him.
    So slay her, with the weapons he smithed. Slay the god, Marika, who cursed us all."

There's something you should know (the first time Dung Eater visits the Roundtable Hold)

  • "A little while ago someone started lurking in the wing on the opposite side of the roundtable.
    And I can hear, from all the way over there...
    The howling and wailing of spirits in fear of a curse. I can ever hear the repulsive, twisted malison itself...
    A plethora of spirits in an unceasing cacophony...
    I can't even imagine. How much suffering, inflicted to who knows how many souls...
    You should keep your distance, I know you're strong, but please."

About the spirits' voices (after Dung Eater leaves the Roundtable Hold)

  • "I suppose the Dung Eater must have left the Roundtable.
    I just pray nothing ill comes of this."

Please take care (when Dung eater comes back to the Roundtable Hold)

  • "He's back. The Dung Eater. Again.
    I can hear them; the spirits as they howl and lament in fear of the curse.
    And worse than ever, the reverberation of the twisted malison itself.
    But after all this time, I've started to grasp it now.

    I can hear, in the malison, another fearsome Order."

About the spirits' voices (after Dung Eater's quest ends and he leaves the Roundtable Hold for a second time)

  • "But it isn't like last time.
    I'm almost certain...the spirits have escaped their confinement.
    Did you...have anything to do with it, I wonder?"

 

Elden Ring Roderika Notes & Trivia

  • Even if you miss the Chrysalids' Memento, it's still possible to fully complete her questline without drawbacks. Simply proceed with the rest of the questline as normal. If she's not available in Roundtable Hold, simply check back at Stormveil Shack every once in a while and see if she's still there or not. If she's no longer there, then you can push forward her questline regardless of the Chrysalids' Memento.
  • Leveling any spirit ashes to +4 (doesn't matter if the ashes are special or not), will give you a Talk option, where she proclaims that she is no longer an apprentice, and gives you the Curtsy gesture.
  • A golden barrier is protecting her at her first location if rolling, jumping or attacking (near) her.

      Among my favorite voice actors of the game. Helen Monks really nailed this character, and gave her a lot of personality through her dialogue. From the moment we met her to her finally gaining confidence in her own abilities, it's a roller-coaster. Really well done.

        I killed maliketh before talking to her once so now she doesnt upgrade ashes and Master Hewg had his memory erased so I cant upgrade my spirit ashes and I guess nobody had this because most people upgrade ashes before Maliketh

        • Anonymous

          At some point the Curtsy gesture becomes missable. I don't know at what point. I can confirm, as of patch 1.05, and on PC, once you burn the Erdtree and exhaust her dialogue by the fire (re Hewg, causing her to move back to her spot across from Hewg upon reload), no matter how many upgrades you do, nor to what level (tested by upgrading three of each type to +10), she will not offer the talk option to gain the gesture.

            I burned the erdtree(Ashen city now) beat hourax loux and I need mimic to be upgraded but I haven't talked to Roderika the whole game I also ignored the blacksmiths option for about the girl now Roderika is still looking for her own purpose and is still at the campfire Ive talked to every npc but still can't find a way to get her to spirit tune. She does not even mention the roundtable which is burning.

                it seems like you can't receive the curtsey gesture if you upgrade the ashes to +4 after letting the erdtree burn

                  Hello, after coming to the Roundtable, when Hewg is asked to take care of her, I selected "understood" when he said she wouldn't (don't ask me why). Now I can't ask her anymore, is it going to be okay or have I screwed up?

                              I can confirm that the quest progresses if you find the Lake-Facing-Cliffs early.
                              My quest progressed for her before I even entered stormveil and found the chrysalids item needed because I accidently found the way around stormveil.
                              When I went back to the keep, she was there. Then I proceeded her quest for spirit tuner.
                              Then I entered Stormveil, and once I got to the room with the quest item there, the Red Hood was lying on top of the mound.
                              And in the shack where you first meet her, after she sets up her shop in the keep, there were some flowers and a golden seed waiting for me.

                              Nice of them to put in continuities for when things doesn't happen perfectly in the questline.

                                      Warning - there is a way to permanently miss the Golden Seed item from her, and it's as follows:

                                      Complete her quest, giving her the chrysalid's memento, then she goes to roundtable hold
                                      Speak to her ONLY ONCE at roundtable hold, then to the blacksmith, this will initiate her spirit tuner quest (which is just talking to each of them twice). Once this quest begins, she will no longer give you the golden seed, nor will it be at stormhill shack. This is surely a bug, but an annoying one.

                                            I have now twice gotten her to the round table hold within ten minutes of starting a run, and I haven't progressed her quest once.
                                            I ran to the shack she's in, and exhausted her dialogue. I then ran to the "Lake Facing Cliffs" site of grace via circumventing Stormveil Castle. I was taken to the roundtable hold, where Roderika was waiting. From here, I can get Hewg to teach her tuning.
                                            This was done on 4/18/2022. Whatever version was current, I think 1.03.

                                                    The voices of the tormented spirits are silent again... But it isn't like last time.
                                                    I'm almost certain... The spirits have escaped their confinement.
                                                    Did you... Have anything to do with it, I wonder?
                                                    2/ when she beg me to kill queen marika : i dont really remember . She said something like "killing marika, the one who curse us all"

                                                      After releasing D.E. from his cell;

                                                      I suppose the Dung Eater must have left the Roundtable. I just pray nothing ill comes of this."

                                                      After killing D.E. when he invades @ outer moat;
                                                      "Please take care";

                                                      "Be on your guard, I beg you.
                                                      He's back. The Dung Eater. Again.
                                                      I can hear them; the spirits as they howl and lament in fear of the curse.
                                                      And worse than ever, the reverberations of the twisted malison itself.
                                                      But after all this time, I've started to grasp it now. I can hear it, in the malison, another fearsome Order."

                                                      After D.E. returns to his cell; "About the spirits' voices";

                                                        • WRT Curtsy emote, I kept close track of how much upgrading is needed. 2 Reknowned Ashes to +3 , 1 regular Ash to +3, and one regular Ash to +6, and I received Curtsy.

                                                              In the shack, she talks in a very "cryptic" way, feeling kinda lost in her own head, and the way she talks about the whole chrysalid thing makes you almost think that's her goal, to be grafted and become a chrysalid? Especially her last line, about getting used to the whole "pain" thing, and stuff. But then once at the roundtable, she's just kind of normal, just disheartened but nothing out of the ordinary?
                                                              I remember feeling a little surprised, like i had just misinterpreted her whole initial dialogue, when i found her at the roundtable, but encountering her at the shack again on NG+ really made me feel like she's a completely different character from what i was used to.

                                                                She has another line about Dung Eater after you kill him in the invasion and talk to him in the roundtable, she will warn you again, maybe there is some quest related to these two?

                                                                • It seems if you activate any grace outside of Limgrave before finding the Chrysalids's Memento she'll move to the Rountable Hold, and the seed she normally gives you there will be left at Stormhill Shack. I don't know what happens to the jelly fish ashes if you don't get them from her.

                                                                  • Anonymous

The dialogue option wasn't there at all for me, I upgraded something a couple times, and then it showed up right after.

                                                                        • Anonymous

I did the quest, gave the chrysalids memento to Roderika, she appeared in the roundtable, I did all the dialogue, she is actually doing the upgrade spirit thing and I beat Godrick. Yet, when I go to the place where crimson hood is supposed to be, there is nothing... Any idea? :(

I was playing from the beginning and I had talked to her at the shack but she hadn’t been to the round table hold and I hadn’t entered Stormveil. I did all of Stormveil, the spider, getting her compatriots book, killing Godrick, all without ever going back to Roundtable. When I did return to roundtable she was there, without me talking to her in the shack and giving her the book.

But shes the only crestfallen to ever pick em self up and turn her doubt around and did something with her life and realized her gifts and she never gave up on the round table nor the blacksmith even to the end.

                                                                                            yea that's kind of hot.

If you haven't picked up the Chrysalid's Memento yet, it is replaced with her red hood. Not sure if there is a lore explanation, or if it's just to make sure you can get it even if you sequence break the quest. It'd be weird for them to worry about this one quest in particular, though.

                                                                                                      Just found out on a bull rush from start to finish nabbing the final few items I missed and skipping everything else.

We know she isn't a revived tarnished since the Hood description says she never saw the guidance of grace and that she was banished royalty. I feel like we know a good chunk about her, but not enough about that NPC Hewg was talking about.

                                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                                            After getting to Crumbling Farum Azula.
                                                                                                            After obtaining and max upgrading the last Spirit Ash.
                                                                                                            After burning the Erdtree.
                                                                                                            (I did also kill Mohg, Lord of Blood before going back to Roundtable Hold but I highly doubt thats what caused her to leave)
                                                                                                            I don't know which one caused her to go away as I did all 3 before going back to round table hold.

                                                                                                            • Anonymous

IMHO the hood is hard to pull off and doesn't fit well. It's probably not as cool as you think so don't worry about it too much if you mess this up. You can still find the golden seed at the shack. Ultimately, this means (To me) the momento is ONLY good for getting the red hood

                                                                                                                After beating the Dung Eater at the moat, Roderika has dialogue on his return. The dialogue is marked "Please take care" and I was terrified she would leave, but she's just saying be careful with him

                                                                                                                • She has the same golden barrier as D's brother at her first location. She has dialogue if trying to attack her (or just roll / jump). Weird that they have different approaches for such a simple thing. You can't attack Rogier / Pidia BUT even if you were able to attack, they can't get damaged - so what's the point?


                                                                                                                  "You're willing to make me a chrysalid? Ah, but I'm still a milksop craven... I can't even govern myself to step beyond the bounds of this ward. Please. You're only wasting your strength"


                                                                                                                  "I know you you must feel. But please, I'm not ready. Or are you like me? You're so far out of your mind with fear? You've divested yourself of all reason?"


                                                                                                                  "Please stop. Even if you persist, your fear will not abate."

                                                                                                                  • Anonymous

Then after resting at the nearby site of graces she was gone with a candle and flower petals in her spot.

                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

In it, she mentions she has become more in tune with the spirits, and Master Greg no longer considers her an apprentice -- she then reintroduces herself and gives the curtsy gesture.

                                                                                                                      Not sure exactly what triggers this -- when I got the dialogue, I had defeated Godrick and Rennala, begun Rabbi's questline, and was on my way to fight Radahn. I also had a +5 Lone Wolf Ashes, which could be a factor.

                                                                                                                      • Anonymous

I went back to the shack when I got the Memento but she'd left and has in fact still moved to the Roundtable Hold and is now the "spirit tuner prentice" as she says. I'm not sure if this is a glitch?

                                                                                                                              1.) You beat Godrick. The quest autocompletes after you kill Godrick as he's the "Spider" she's referencing.
                                                                                                                              2.) You've got a glitch.
                                                                                                                              I've done the starting area in just about every way possible, as well as skipped it entirely and rode torrent all the way to the Draconic Tree Sentinel, and the only way I've ever been able to get her to the hold is to either kill Godrick , or alternatively get the memento from the pile of corpses underneath the giant corpse next to the Grafted Scion fight and bring it to her. If you've done neither of these things and she's still showing up. Either you had a bug, or I have the most consistent bug in existence.

                                                                                                                                  4. She's at the Roundtable.

                                                                                                                                  7. Talk to her. No dialog option for memento. Only training to become a spirit tuner.
                                                                                                                                  8. Talk to smith about her becoming a spirit tuner.
                                                                                                                                  9. Leave and come back. Talk to both her and smith. She's a spirit tuner now.
                                                                                                                                  10. Still have memento in my inventory.

If you dont talk to her before then you have to go get her momento from the castle etc

Also she never gave me the golden seed, i had to go back to Stormhill Shack and it was sitting where she used to.

You can still receive the Seed if you return to where she was prior. It will be on the floor. However, the item will forever be in your inventory.

I don't know how much, but she gave it to me after I upgraded the jellyfish from level 1 to level 4.
