Voiced by Shaun Dooley

Shabriri is an NPC in Elden Ring. Shabriri can be found at the Mountaintops of the Giants and looks exactly the same as Bloody Finger Hunter Yura, as he implies the hunter died and he has been given his body. Shabriri can become available as an NPC Summon against Godfrey, First Elden Lord depending on questline progress and ending route. 

 

May chaos take the world! May chaos take the world!

 

Shabriri Location in Elden Ring

Shabriri can be found at Mountaintops of the Giants, near the starting area location. Map Link

  • This NPC does not move
  • This NPC can be fought. Shabriri will use frenzy incantations to defend himself.
  • If defeated, drops the Ronin's Set
  • NPC Summon: Godfrey, First Elden Lord.
    • You must have met with the Three Fingers at the Frenzied Flame Proscription to make him available.
    • Shabriri becomes unavailable if you proceed to use Miquella's Needle to remove the influence of the Frenzied Flame.

 

Shabriri Questline: How to complete Shabriri's Quest

  • Shabriri appears next to the Zamor Ruins site of grace when you arrive. He claims that Yura died and gave him this body.
  • Shabriri gives you directions for obtaining the Lord of the Frenzied Flame ending. You must meet with the Three Fingers by finding them near the Cathedral of the Forsaken below the Subterranean Shunning-Grounds. You must remove your clothes in order to open the door and proceed. See Endings for more information.
    • Note: Meeting with the Three Fingers will lock you out of all other ending choices, unless Miquella's Needle is used at Dragonlord Placidusax's arena at Crumbling Farum Azula. This removes the Frenzied Flame, and is a permanent reversal. 
    • In order to summon him as a NPC Summon Cooperator against Godfrey, players must embrace the Frenzied Flame, which will also affect your ending. 
  • After you meet with the Three Fingers, Shabriri will disappear, and the Ronin's Set will be left in his place. You can also kill Shabriri for the set as soon as you meet him.

 

Shabriri Notes and Tips

  • If player meets with the Three Fingers before reaching where Shabriri is, he will not be found. The Ronin's Set will be on the floor in his place.
  • He wields Yura’s Nagakiba and uses Frenzied Flame Incantations.

 

Dialogue in Elden Ring: Shabriri

Introduction

  • Finally, we meet. The Tarnished who would be Lord. Oh my, why the long face?
  • I fear that you were previously acquainted with this vessel. Well, that is most unfortunate. For he is dead. As for his flesh, he gave it to me, Shabriri. I hope you can make your peace with that. 

When attacked

  • What's this? Well, this is peculiar. This, I did not expect. But if you do not care for Lordship, I'm afraid you are of no use.
  • (On player kill) How very unfortunate. I did not take you for a fraud.

When killed

  • Shabriri is chaos incarnate. I cannot die. Ahh, may chaos take the world!

Visit

  • You are about to sacrifice something precious. The life of a fair maiden, that you would toss into the fiery forge. Only so that you may be Lord. What a horrible thing to ponder. Your ascendency requires her sacrifice, whether she wishes it or not. But how would the Lord, crowned so, be looked upon?
  • Chosen Tarnished and would-be Lord, dare to tread the path of true rigor. Spare the poor girl, and singe your own flesh in her stead. If you are prepared to show resolve and attain Lordship through righteous hardship, then heed the words of I, Shabriri.
  • Chosen Tarnished, and would-be Lord. Descend into the depths, far below the Erdtree Capital. Seek audience with the Three Fingers and the flame of frenzy. If you inherit the flame of frenzy, your flesh will serve as kindling and the girl can be spared ...setting you on the righteous path of lordship. The path of the Lord of Chaos. Burn the Erdtree to the ground, and incinerate all that divides and distinguishes.
    Ahhh, may chaos take the world! May chaos take the world! 

 

Elden Ring Shabriri Notes & Trivia

  • Can be summoned as a cooperator for the Godfrey, First Elden Lord boss fight.
  • Shabriri is the name of a Demon of Blindness in Jewish mythology, which is hinted at here due to the hands suggestively covering his eyes. In modern Hebrew, Shabriri translates literally as "fragile".
  • He is referenced in the talisman Shabriri's Woe, as a man who had his eyes gouged out, and had the frenzied flame inhabit his sockets, which may explain why he covers his face. 
  • He may also be in relation to Hyetta, as they both inherit the bodies of former characters, and are related to the Frenzied Flame.

      So he's the same Shabriri that had his eyes gouged out and went insane with hatred. Now he's a demon that stole my friend Yura's body and is trying to manipulate me into his scheme to end the world. While I do agree that the world is a complete shithole and full of random suffering, I still want to kill this bastard.

        This dude has one of the greatest monologues in the game when you talk to him. The voice actor hit all the feels…then I hit Shabriri with my twinblades and took his armor.

          Shabriri showed up after I went down to the FFP site of grace and talked to Hyetta but not the three fingers (didn't trigger the cutscene).

            The way Shabriri approaches you is actually pretty similar to how some real life cult leaders work. Note that Shabriri doesn’t pop up until you’re reaching near the end of your journey, not beforehand. By this point, you’ve lost many friends who either go insane or are assassinated, not to mention the world you’re seeking to become the lord of is basically dying. Then you find out that the one person who has been a constant in your journey, your “maiden,” is going to burn herself alive. At this point, the player would be at one of their lowest points in the story.

            Then suddenly, a man shows up in familiar garb, accusing you of planning to sacrifice someone innocent for power. And while it’s a half-truth since the innocent person in question is willingly doing so, it still contains enough “truth” to sting. Then they tell you that, hey, you don’t have to burn her, there’s another way to become lord. And setting the world on fire, well technically the world is one big ball of death and backstabbing. He’s offering you another route, a way to have your cake and eat it too, a way to become lord that saves someone you care about while also becoming lord over a new kind of world. Or so he says, anyways, but much of what he said isn’t a lie. This isn’t too different from how cult leaders entice new followers: they find you at your lowest point in life, promise you great things in return for doing what they ask of you, and then suddenly you’re hooked.

            What’s even more interesting, despite people complaining about how “burning the world means burning everyone too,” what people don’t realize is this message is almost more so directed at the player themselves rather than their Tarnished character. Burning the world doesn’t necessarily entail burning everyone living in it as well, it’s giving the player a way to “get even” with how the game treated them, constantly killing NPCs they cared about and expecting you to become lord of a dead world. In a sense, it’s giving the player a form of revenge for everything bad that happened to them throughout their journey, rejecting the world that has constantly let you down and starting a new one. Of course there’s no telling if Chaos will fully hold the reins from then on, rejecting the possibility of a new world whose Order is less oppressive and stagnant (or at least it’ll take some time before Order gets out of hand again), but would you be too worried of this and therefore let the world continue to stagnant and decay?

            It’s a rather interesting perspective, I hope future DLC expands more on the nature of the three fingers and how Chaos truly sees itself.

              The idea of chaos assuming the form of deceased characters is fascinating. Shame it wasn't explored in depth.

                The howl of shabriri incantation states that he is the origin of the frenzy flame, but the nomadic clothing states that the merchants summoned the frenzy flame. Which one is it???

                  The whole burning the erdtree to the ground and "incinerating all that divides and distinguishes" sounds kinda interesting ig, but on the other hand that armor your wearing is alot more interesting, not to mention i kinda would rather go with the cool witch lady rather than the whole "watch the world burn" thing.

                    Wiki edit: above it says "You can also kill Shabriri for the set as soon as you meet him." I did this and I only got the weapon, not the set. I think this may need to be removed

                        He exchanged the Nagakiba (which you should have in your possession by now ) and uses a basic Uchigatana in his left hand for anyone wondering about cosplaying him instead of Yura.

                                He is absolutely great. His VA did such a great job. When he just loses it and starts screaming "May Chaos take the world" it's so great! Well he is the most reviled man in the history, but atleast he is absolutely honest with what he wants, which is unlike most of the characters in From Soft games haha. And as the Corvinian friend from Ariandel (DS3) said:

                                "When the world rots, we set it afire.
                                For the sake of the next world.
                                It's the one thing we do right, unlike those fools on the outside."

                                  You save Melina from burning but betray her trust and condemn her to hunting you down later on. One of you will inevitably end up dying.

                                    Shabriri makes it about halfway into giving you a pretty compelling reason to use the Frenzied Flame before he starts ranting like a madman. You've got to close the deal before you mention the awful side-effects, buddy!

                                        If you leave Yura at his starting spot and reach the Mountaintops of the Giants, Shabriri will be waiting by the grace. Upon going back to Yura's spot, you'll find his Nagakiba without a corpse. I literally screamed because I forgot about him!

                                              False. I encountered him around long before I even knew where to find Mohg in the Subterranean Shunning-Grounds. You must defeat the copy of Mohg before you can even reach the Three Fingers' location.

                                                Not much of a sales pitch. But it is interesting to note that Melina, perhaps exclusively, survives the Frenzied Flame. I wonder if Shabriri knew that to be the case.

She could direct you to the blade she used to kill her 2 fingers which after some quest you would make capable of killing the 3 fingers and removing that gods influence. They could even do a convoluted quest where by doing this you trick the flame to burn the erdtree without taking it on, thus saving Malina without dirtying yourself, possibly by sacrificing Hyetta instead which has nice symmetry and she's a psycho body snatcher too anyways.

                                                                  I summoned Shabriri to help out and he uses Frenzied Flame incantations, I was also using them, at one point I did Undenderable Frenzy for 4, 5 seconds until I ran out of FP, and at the end of the fight, I saw his HP bar go down suddenly, A-La bleed, but it went down as he was being hit by a Frenzy Incantation from Shabriri

                                                                  This also makes sense considering the game says they only work on Tarnished and iirc Godfrey is Tarnished

                                                                  • Anonymous

When you first listen to him, he actually sounds relatively correct. Seemingly giving us, the player, a more positive answer to our upcoming problem; the burning of Melina. Like, maybe the Frenzied Flame isn't all that bad? But then he goes from 0 to 100 and completely throws that notion in the bin.

                                                                    The whole Frenzied Flame storyline seems a little mismanaged in my opinion. I feel like it should have been set up as the righteous path, as Shabriri initially portrays it, only for the wool to be yanked away revealing that, surprise, you're an *******.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                            I can see why lore notes that this is the most reviled man in history, I wouldn't want someone this bad at hiding their clearly malicious intent near me either. Makes even Varré look like an honest man.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                          He is there to persuade you to become the lord of frenzied flame, so by meeting the 3 Fingers before getting to him, his "questline" has basically already been fulfilled, thus there being no further need for him to guilt trip you about Melina and becoming the lord of Chaos.

                                                                                          So all you find is his armor, because you are already on your way to fulfill his goal.

                                                                                            • It seems that Shabriri either is the frenzied flame itself, or powered by it. As you taking on the frenzied frame results in Shabriri dying immediately.

At least it wasn't a case in my playthrough.
