Rya Questline: Points of Failure

1. If you go to the Volcano Manor without speaking to Rya at Liurnia of the Lakes, you will lose access to Blackguard Big Boggart and his questline for the rest of that playthrough, as he will refuse to speak with you if you haven't spoken with Rya in the swamp about retrieving a necklace from someone who stole it. This will also render you unable to purchase Boiled Prawn and Boiled Crab. (However, you can enter the Manor and touch the grace in the room where Tanith and her knight protector reside without losing access to Blackguard Big Boggart's questline as long as you do not speak to Tanith or anyone else in the Manor.)

2. If you kill Rykard before speaking to Rya in her room inside the dungeon, she will disappear from the manor and her quest will become impossible to complete.

3. If you complete all three of the manor's assassination contracts before gaining the Tonic of Forgetfulness, it will be impossible to acquire the Tonic. This closes some possible endings of the questline, but it can still be completed.

 

Rya Questline: How to complete Rya's Quest

  1. First meet her at Liurnia of the Lakes under the pavilion next to the Birdseye Telescope north of Laskyar ruins. Exhausting her dialogue she will ask you to retrieve a necklace from someone who stole it. Map Link
  2. Head north west from the pavilion until you reach the Boilprawn Shack and its Site of Grace.
  3. Speak to the thief there, Blackguard Big Boggart, who will offer to sell Rya's Necklace back to you for 1000 runes. Alternatively, you can kill him and it will drop.
    • NOTE: Killing Boggart here will lock you out of being able to complete his quest later
  4. Return the necklace to her and she will reward you with a Volcano Manor Invitation.She will also tell you about the two main ways to reach Altus Plateau.
  5. When reaching Altus Plateau, you can talk to Rya, and she will teleport you inside Volcano Manor. Depending on which route you took to first reach the plateau, she can be found at one of two locations:
    • the lower part of Lux Ruins, right next to Erdtree-Gazing Hill site of grace, if you went through the Ruin-Strewn Precipice first
    • the top of Grand Lift of Dectus, to the left of the top of the stairs leaving the lift platform, if you used the lift first
    • NOTE: If she does not appear at either of these locations, try teleporting to the Grand Lift and riding it to the top again to trigger her spawn.
    • NOTE: You can reach Leyndell, Royal Capital through Fia's questline. If done so, Rya won't appear at either of these locations.
  6. After joining Volcano Manor and completing the first part of Tanith questline (i.e., assassination of Old Knight Istvan) she will move to a different room in the manor and appear in her snake form. Speaking to her during her snake form will progress the questline.
    • NOTE: If you do all contracts in the Volcano Manor, to the point where you get ported to Rykard, Lord of Blasphemy from Tanith, she will no longer have dialogue related to Rya and you will be unable to pursue her optional objectives in this questline.
  7. Complete the second part of Tanith questline: assassination of Rileigh the Idle
  8. She will be in human form in the same room where she was seen in her snake form.  she complains about hearing noises in the adjacent room: a clue to the secret passage therein. She asks you to investigate. To proceed in the questline, enter the illusory wall in the room right of hers and reach the grace in Prison Town Church. Return to Zorayas and tell her what you have seen to continue.
    • NOTE: You must open the doors leaving Prison Town Church to continue in the questline.
  9. (OPTIONAL) Speak to Lady Tanith and choose the "Zorayas' troubles" option.
  10. Defeat Godskin Noble in the Temple of Eiglay (Map Link) to get the Serpent's Amnion.
  11. Give the Serpent's Amnion to Zorayas and she will disappear from the manor.
  12. (OPTIONAL - But crucial, see step #13 below) Speaking to Lady Tanith will have the new option "Zorayas' absence". She will give a Tonic of Forgetfulness to give to the upset Zorayas.
  13. Zorayas has moved to the Legacy Dungeon's interior, in a small room adjacent to a lava pit filled with cages and skulls, just before a rope ladder. If you have fully unlocked the area, you can reach it by taking the wooden elevator next to the Temple of Eiglay, getting off at a hidden doorway just below the lift's highest point, and heading straight through the room, out a window, and jump across a lava floe. She is inside the room directly across.
    1. If the elevator is not yet active, you can reach the lava floe (or unlock the elevator) by jumping off the balcony of the top floor of Temple of Eiglay.
      • To clarify - take the lift within the Temple of Eiglay (SE of the grace) up and go out through the door to reach the balcony. Jump down to the lava pit with slugs that leads to a rocky bridge you need to jump off, and then climb up the path afterwards. Hop across the lava to find a window on the left, but be ready for the Iron Virgin waiting behind the corner. Once inside there's a door to the right which leads to a bridge with a man-serpent - go passed him, the stairs, and then down the hall a bit to find a ladder in one of the windows to your left. You will find Rya in a small alcove at the bottom of it.
    2. You can also reach this room by taking the wooden elevator to the top, going straight ahead toward the man-serpent with the lava sword, and jumping out the windows on the left.
      • To clarify - Turn NW from the Temple of Eiglay grace to find the door which leads to the lift if you have access. Right before it reaches the top there is a door leading to an open room with an enemy inside where you will find a window to jump out of. Straight across is Rya's alcove.
  14. In her new location, the player is given a choice between three actions:.
    1. If you kill her, she will transform back into a snake and drop Daedicar's Woe.
    2. If you leave her alive and return after killing Rykard, she will have new dialogue. When you reset the area, she is gone and has left Daedicar's Woe and Zorayas' Letter in her place.
    3. If you give her the Tonic of Forgetfulness, she simply goes to sleep. After Rykard is killed and the Manor's inhabitants have all left, she will return to her original location in the Manor. Exhaust her dialogue and reload the area to find Daedicar's Woe in her place.
  15. If you get to Volcano Manor and complete her snake form questline before talking to Blackguard Big Boggart, the necklace won't trigger anything, so there is no reason to kill him for it(It is requested for his questline to buy it).
  16. If you kill Rykard before speaking to Rya in her room inside the dungeon, it appears that she will disappear from the manor.

 

Dialogue in Elden Ring: Rya

At Liurnia of the Lakes

  • Hello.
    It's rather chilly here, isn't it? My mistress sent me off on an errand...
    But I was accosted by a ruffian, and now I'm in a bind. Could I ask you to lend a hand, perhaps?
    That thug made off with a precious necklace. I need someone to retrieve it.
    Only... He, too, is Tarnished. If you've any qualms confronting your own, I shall find another...

Hear the Request

  • Ohh, thank you dearly. What a blessing that we've met like this.
    The thug should be resting at an abandoned home down the way...
    Please, I must have the necklace back.

Upon attacking / rolling / jumping

  • Please, stop, Brave Tarnished.
    You will only tire by striking this barrier.
    Besides I'm no foe of yours. Please think this over.
  • I see you've reconsidered. Thank goodness.

Give Rya's Necklace

  • Oh, yes, that is my missing necklace. Thank you kindly. I am in your debt.
    Did I forget to announce myself?
    I am Rya, in the service of Lady Tanith of the Volcano Manor.
    I seek stalwart Tarnished who might join our house. You are very brave yourself. Not only a steady hand,
    but a steady heart, merciless, even to your own kind. Such strength is precisely what my mistress seeks.
    Please, take this. (Volcano Manor Invitation)
  • Brave Tarnished, seek the Altus Plateau, the realm of the Erdtree.
    Most Tarnished are Doomed to wander the outskirts of the Lands Between, peering wistfully at the towering Erdtree...
    But you are no ordinary Tarnished. And once that is proven,
    the Volcano Manor will fully extend its invitation. To fight, amongst a family of champions.
  • Ohh, and... One more thing, only for you...
    This land of Liurnia is connected to the Altus Plateau by the Grand Lift of Dectus, beyond the High Road.
    But the lift has been defunct for an age, meaning there's no simple means of passage.
    Instead, you must seek the old ruins in the cliff.
    At the base of the valley near the Grand Lift, there's an old tunnel.
    It was excavated from both ends, linking Liurnia to the Altus Plateau.
    I have faith in you, A champion, through and throught.
    I do hope that we can meet again.

At the Grand Lift of Dectus/Lux Ruins

  • I've been waiting for you. I knew you had the stuff of champions.
    I hereby invite you to the Volcano Manor. Take my hand, and have audience with my mistress.
  • (Accept) Give me your hand.
    I will pray. That you follow the same path as Lady Tanith.

At Volcano Manor

  • (If she teleported you to Volcano Manor) Hello again. Brave Tarnished.
    As a scout, I am pleased to see you again here at the Volcano Manor.
    Under Lady Tanith's guidance, may you tread the path of valour.
  • (If she didn't teleport you) Hello again. Brave Tarnished.
    It is a shame that I did not beckon you here with my own hand, but I am pleased that we meet again, here at the Volcano Manor.
    Under Lady Tanith's guidance, may you tread the path of valour.
  • (If you haven't met her before) A pleasure to meet you. Brave Tarnished.
    I am Rya, the scout. Very pleased to welcome you to the Volcano Manor.
    Under Lady Tanith's guidance, may you tread the path of valour.

After completing the first Volcano Manor quest

  • Have you ever...heard any strange sounds here at the manor?
    Something beyond the walls, like breathing, or slithering scales...
    Oh fie what am I saying? It just isn't possible. I must be tired.
  • Sometimes I hear strange sounds beyond the walls. Like breathing, or slithering scales.
    Oh, perhaps I'm just feeling tired.

After completing the second Volcano Manor quest

  • Brave Tarnished, what is your business here? I'm afraid this is not a guest room.
    What's that peculiar look upon your face?
    Goodness, am I still a serpent? Oh, how dreadful... How dreadful indeed...
    Forgive my distress. I ought to be thanking you for treating me as usual, despite this appearance.
    Brave Tarnished. This is my true form. My real name is Zorayas.
    Please forgive the deception. Do understand. The duplicity is my own doing.
    Lady Tanith speaks no falsehoods, and the Volcano Manor is just as it seems.
  • Lady Tanith is my mother. I am told I was born by the grace of a glorious king.
    That my mother cherishes this form I inhabit. I am proud of what I am.
    But people are cruel. If they saw my true form, the wouldn't speak to me.
    And so I assume a guise when seeking new recruits.
    But you are not like the rest. 
  • My serpentine form, and the name Zorayas, were secrets known only to Lady Tanith and I.
    Now I share the secrets with you, as well. Please keep them safe from anyone else.

After speaking to Tanith and reloading the area

  • Um, oh, it's you. Forgive me. My mind never ceases to churn of late. Hmm, well... I know I can trust you...
    I saw something, slithering in the pitch black of night. It entered the room next to this one, and never came out.
    If I'm not mistaken, it took the form of a serpent, just like me...
    Does the Volcano Manor hide some secret, that Lady Tanith has kept from me?
    I realise that I shouldn't impose but, if you discover anything, would you please share?

Tell her of the dark side of Volcano Manor

  • Really... Oh, so there was a secret after all... Oh my...
    Lady Tanith, my own mother, has deceived me...

    Was I not... born by the grace of a king?

Giving her the Serpent's Amnion

  • I remember this scent, distinctly. Funny, isn't it.
    I am certain of it. I was born inside this. It's a part of my birth mother.
    You have my gratitude. Thanks to you, I am no longer afraid.
    I want to know. How I was born, and met Lady Tanith.
    One day, I hope to call her mother once again, this time from the bottom of my heart.

At Volcano Manor's dungeon

  • Oh, it's you... I'm afraid... there is something I must tell you.
    I was an unwanted child. Born not of grace, but of a hideous ritual.
    Something that can never be accepted, not by men, nor serpents. Even Lady Tanith shouldn't accept me.
    I know that you have done so much for me. But I wish to ask one last kindness. Kill me, please.
    I thought that I feared nothing. But this... Free me from this accursed frame.

Accept her request

  • Agh... Thank you... My champion... Mother...

Give Tonic of Forgetfulness

  • Yes, of course. You always were very kind.
  • Ahh... How delightfully sweet... And yet...

After Rykard is defeated & tonic was given

  • Oh, it's you. Heaven knows what happened here, but Lady Tanith, and all the Tarnished champions, are gone.
    It feels rather quiet without them. But with you here, things will be just fine.
  • I await Lady Tanith. I am her daughter, born by the grace of a great king. I do not wish to burden her, or cause concern.
    Brave Tarnished. Do tread the path of valour. I'm certain that this is what Lady Tanith wishes.

After Rykard is defeated and you leave her be

  • You're not willing to kill me, are you. Hah... You've always been so kind. And uncompromising.
  • I suppose I knew in my heart of hearts. How kind, and uncompromising, you always were.

      I think they made the third assassination so far from Volcano Manor so people don't speedrun them and miss out on this questline along with the bonus assassinations.

      Also I really expected her to return before Rykard if I gave her the tonic, but oh well, guess I'll have to progress further and/or kill Rykard to talk to her again.

      • Anonymous

        You can still get the tonic of forgetfulness if you've finished all three volcano manor requests before giving her the Serpent's Amnion. Advance her to the point where she's asking you to kill her, but don't, then kill Ryckard. Before talking to her again, exhaust Tannith's dialogue and when you reload the manor the tonic will be on her chair. Then you can take it to Rya and give it to her.

        • Anonymous

          She appeared at Lux Ruins even though I took Dectus lift first in NG+
          I went through Ruin-Strewn first in NG though, maybe it saves that data per character?

          • Anonymous

            depending on how you go about the events in volcano manor, certain parts of her quest can change order, (on ng+ she told me about the noises in the walls before having her true form exposed) don't know if the pattern can be changed further though

            • Anonymous

              if you didn't give her the Serpent's Amnion, and defeat Rykard, it will considered as you didn't speak with her at dungeon, as she didn't even appear at that dungeon

              • Anonymous

                So if I go through Ruin-Strewn Precipice, she will spawn in a totally different location than the exit in an easy omittable spot. And she will wait there the whole time even if I go back and take a grand lift. Brilliant design
                And even if I have invitation, Tanith will complain that I came uninvited, because creating dialogue option "I do have invitation" is too much hassle. Another brilliant solution.

                  Dammit FROM. Can't snek girl have a happy ending? You either have to lie to her and compound Tannith's deception or tell her the truth and make her extremely sad.

                      You're simping a snake and not just a snake, one that looks like a hunch too!

                      Maybe the Frenzy Flame isn't the most evil ending after all. The Elden Ring world needs to be set aflame. Lol

                        Is it just me or do all the quests in Elden Ring (with the exception of a few) seem extremely fruitless? It's either the NPC dies and we get their armor or some useless item.

                        • PSA: at the place you decide whether to give her the potion or kill her, she has no health. So if an enemy follows you there, they can/will kill her. Damn abductor virgin killed her in front of me.

                            Point 16.
                            She doesn't disappear she moves to a different location, you can still finish her quest.
                            From the Temple of Eiglay grace take the wooden elevator up and roll out halfway, continue into the room jump out the window then over the stream of lava into the nearby room, she will be in there. Give her the potion to forget and meet her back in the drawing room, after exhausting her dialogue she'll disappear, reload and receive your "reward" for completing her quest.

                              This is not true, I just went back to the manor and the tonic was sitting on the chair (I have already defeated rykard)

                                She has immortal force field from the result of this ritual. She should have given a better forcefield talisman instead of that silly face

                                  If you have completed all of the assassination quests before progressing Rya's quest far enough to get the tonic of forgetfulness (I finished the missions right before doing the step to get the serpent's amnion), Tanith will not offer you the tonic. She will only offer to take you to Rykard's chamber. Going to the chamber and resting at the Grace site does not clear this dialog. If you then kill Rykard, then talk to Tanith to send her down to his room, then kill her there, you will find the tonic sitting on her chair in the mansion when you return.
                                  It might be useful to add this detail to either this page, or the page for the Tonic of Forgetfulness, as neither mentions this option yet.

                                          when she asks you to kill her and you do so, if you revisit that area, she seems to be alive but she won't talk to you.
                                          this might be a bug, but i hope that she somehow lives.

I know I could probably find something if I did a google search, but I've been trying my best to avoid any spoilers so far, so I was hoping someone here might know what this "hideous ritual" may be?

Didn't seem true for me. I completed the entire Volcano Manor questline, then killed Rykard. Afterwards, I simply exhausted dialogue with Tanith, and reloaded the area. She was gone and the Tonic was sitting where she used to be.

                                                    No you can actually kill Ricard. (Must go through volcano manor, can't be teleported) and tell tanith. And then the tonic will be on her chair. That's its you locked yourself out of it by going to far in. Still works after killing rykard.

                                                      After doing all contracts and killing Rykard, when Tanith appears in his arena by his corpse, for me the tonic appeared at the first grace of the manor on Tanith's chair...
                                                      So, completing the 3 contracts maube is not locking out this item

                                                        I cannot get the Tonic from Tanith? I've completed all 3 attempted and all Tanith says now is to warp to Rykard. I did talk to Rya at her location where she asks to to be killed. Guess I am out of luck?

                                                          I don't understand how people are seeing this as complicated or missable. Just talk to people after each thing you do that seems significant, i.e bosses, questline steps, npc invasions (both ways). Boom, now you won't miss any questlines anymore.

                                                            This guide tells you not to complete contracts or you will fail the quest but you CANNOT proceed to step 10 without the second assassination mission for the manor being completed. This should be stated before step 9 or as an addendum as there is no point in doing it if you haven't yet completed the second assassination mission.

                                                              So, I've killed Rykard before finding her past the temple. Gave her the tonic but she doesn't move, she's just asleep. Is that how it's supposed to work?

But if you never met patches or disregarded this women entirely, you need to deal with these shifty bastards whose introduction screams "join us if you want the evil ending"? What if I'm not a complete douche but I missed patches (or disregarded his suspicious advice) and assumed Rya's errand was an unimportant sidequest? I'm not going to remember her 20+ hours later when I get to the mansion, especially if I went through Leyndell first!
                                                                  I haven't even seen Boggart, and I explored the lakes pretty good. Volcano manor can eat my ass, what was From thinking?

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Post patch: I progressed her quest until she is given Serpents Amnion, never spoke to her in the alcove, killed Rykar, then proceeded to clear Farum Azula. She was still in the alcove though, at the "Oh, it's you..." point in her quest. I could successfully complete it after this.

                                                                        • Anonymous

Literally did all the contracts, spoke with Tanith and Rya fater every single on, completed openning up the whole thing and even got the Tonic of Forgetfullness and Serpent thing in the temple. But no, she is not appearing under the bridge room. Whoever designed this particular one should be blacklisted from the industry.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

Going back to elevator or reloading grace does not fix anything. It looks like defeating renalla makes her move directly to volcano manor so she won't teleport you anymore.

                                                                              She never appears in atlus plateau for me after doing renalla but I have no problem with another character when I go to atlus plateau directly after I gave her the necklace.

After that I went and explored the lower area and collected the Serpent's Amnion but she's no where to be found so I guess I failed her mission.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            • Anonymous

Then there are the 'strange but ok I guess" quest breakers like how progressing Ranni's questline causing Seluvis to die without warning. This one makes no sense though. Why does killing Rykard make Zorayas disappear from the game? Even Lady Tanith stays to say some parting words (she is suprisingly supportive of you defeating Rykard). Killing Rykard doesn't despawn the guards in the dungeon, so shouldn't she still be there? This feels more like a bug than an intended feature, and if it is intended I can't imagine why. Killing Radahn opens up multiple quests, but killing Rykard breaks one? Why would you possibly punish the player for completing a major objective for the game, to collect great runes.

Later she seems better and more mature on her letter. I'd like to imagine she went on with her life and found a good snek boy to live with and be happy together. At least one good npc ending.

I didnt speak with her before the fight and she was there. She also did all the following steps of her quest after that. Her mother was also eating Rykard (I didnt complete the manor quest), I killed her and her knight and got her amor after.

So I just went with the lady Tanith's path and gave her Tonic of Forgetfulness. I know she will be all alone in the end but at least she will be a happy loner. Such a kind soul does not deserve to suffer the pain of her origins.

I kept my word but there’s no unseeing that and no option to drink the potion myself

I had cleared that unconnected section already when I found her there just now.

                                                                                                                            • She didn't appear on either of her two 2nd locations. I used the Grand Lift though. I also did her first quest going RLucaria, and I do had the letter invitation.
                                                                                                                              Didn't saw her too at Lux.
                                                                                                                              Probably regardless of whether you had the invitation or not, if Rya didn't brought you to VManor then Tanith will just see it as going there w/o invitation.

                                                                                                                                i still found her in the secret room after killing rykard, but i didn't find her beforehand. i did finish all her dialogue to the point she leaves the manor before killing rykard, that's it. i also tried to give the castanets to tanith before finding her.

                                                                                                                                • For me she was complaining about the noises while still in the main drawing board room before I did any assassinations, so I don't believe the second assassination is required for that specific step of the questline
