Three Fingers Location in Elden Ring

Three Fingers can be found near the Cathedral of the Forsaken, below the Subterranean Shunning-Grounds. You will need to remove your armor to open the door.

  • This NPC does not move and cannot be interacted with outside of the cutscene where it gives you the Flame of Frenzy.

 

 

Three Fingers Questline: How to complete Three Fingers' Quest

Finding Three Fingers will imbue the character with the Flame of Frenzy which unlocks the Lord of the Frenzied Flame ending. See Endings page.  Interacting with the Three Fingers will also affect the character with large burn scars across their body as well as burning yellow eyes, these can be toggled on or off at Fia's cosmetic mirror in Roundtable Hold or by selecting cosmetics while speaking to Rennala in the Raya Lucaria Grand Library. 

Note: Removing the cosmetics will not remove the Flame of Frenzy nor will it affect the ending.

Note: The player's burning yellow eyes are removed from their eye sockets when they are not the host.

Note: Receiving the Flame of Frenzy will prompt Melina to leave your party thinking that you are no longer fit. She will also threaten to kill the player should they become the Lord of Frenzy.
She does not appear in the final cutscene if she sacrificed herself to the Flame of Ruin.

  

Elden Ring Three Fingers Notes & Trivia

  • By completing Hyetta's questline you will be rewarded with the Frenzied Flame Seal when you speak with her after interacting with the Three Fingers and acquiring the Flame of Frenzy.  She will disappear, leaving the seal in her place as well as 5 Frenzyflame Stones.
  • 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.

      "You see, with three fingers, when I play rock-paper-scissors, Scissors and Paper actually look different. So whaddya say? Burn the world, and we can play rock-paper-scissors until the end of time!"

        This ending is really cool, if not just really sad. Honestly it looks like when Melina picks up the little rune/ring and the whistling starts, she seems to lament Torrent with a moment of silence before proclaiming her promise to killing the frenzied lord.

        It's a pretty messed up ending but definitely my favorite ending! And clearly if Melina survived, there's no way there aren't any survivors or a way to reverse the damage done: she says she'll return destined death to the frenzied lord, which to me implies she'll bring order back.

          Would be kind of neat if toggling the Frenzied Eyes on and off, as well as maybe the burn marks, would give you a lot of Focus (resistance to Frenzy and Sleep) at the cost of maybe taking a decent amount more damage.

            Used to dislike this ending. But then everyone in the comments is calling it collectivist, communist and antinatalist? I love those things! omw rn to getting the frenzied flame ;))

              I decided to do this ending for my first playthrough just so I never have to do that godforsaken jumping puzzle ever again.

                    Those who gave me grapes howled without words. Saying they wished they were never born. Become their lord. Take their torment, despair. Their affliction. Every sin, every curse.

                      I've met Three finger after end the first game.
                      If I move to NG, It also carry frame of frenzy status to the NG or I need to meet Three finger in NG again to get the special ending?

                        Not sure if it's intended but I lost the burn marks from the fingers when I changed my character from a girl to a boy. I changed straight after the cutscene for maliketh so unsure if you lose the burn marks normally

                          I wish they'd add a scene in the game after burning the tree then removing the frenzied flame where Melina comes back but fromsoft would never give us a good ending

                            They really missed an opportunity making it the Frenzied Flame instead of the Frenzied Bolt or something...

                            Like, it's a Shocker they didn't go for the joke what with all the fingering maidens around...

                              I can't open the door? I didn't come down here until recently so maybe I missed something. I'm currently fighting Horax Lou or whatever idk if it's to late for me to do this?

                                I missed millicent's quest because I entered the windmill village too early and stumbled into the door without knowing what was behind it. Now I'm stuck with only one ending choice. This is bullshit

                                  Does anything special happen if you visit the three fingers after having already used Miquella's needle and having the finger slayer blade in your possession?

                                    Oh my God. I accidently triggered this, because I thought nothing of just opening a door.

                                    So I undid it in the game. I did a lenghty side quest to get the needle, I won the hardest boss fight in the game to upgrade the needle, and I moved to the arena of another boss to use it.

                                    And what happened when I used the needle? IT ASKED ME IF I'M SURE I WANT TO DO IT. Where was that question when I opened the door in the first place? Ugh.

                                      Seriously wish there was a warning before the door. I opened the door out of curiosity, without any intention to join them, n then my character just walked in n made the choice without any input from me.
                                      When we burn our maiden, the game makes absolutely sure we're sure, even though it doesn't lock us out if any endings, yet this one gets no warning?!!

                                      I didn't plan to pick this ending, and now I'll have to do it again in NG++, since Hyetta didn't show up in this playthrough :/

                                        I used my cloud save to revert back to before this point. Usually your cloud save is delayed by at least a few minutes to a half hour!

                                        If you're reading this, obviously save scum before you accidentally join the Three Fingers!

                                        If not, check your cloud save! Really need to save scum on this game more ugh

                                          Anyone do experimentation in the three fingers room after interacting? I find it odd that it’s the only place in that area where attacking is permitted.
                                          Currently in here testing spells, weapons, pretty much anything that comes to mind. Even tried finger, but hole. Nothing so far.

                                              Attempted to reach 3 fingers prior to Stormviel, this has resulted in a seal on the door after Mogh that reads "Sealed by Morgott the Grace-Given"

                                                This is reversable with the use of Miquella's Needle. Not sure how it affects your relationship with Melina though as I haven't tried it for myself

                                                  *SPOILERS* Really cool ending, but I wish we could keep that chaos lord form we get in the ending cutscene

                                                  • I got to this part without knowing that it would ruin the ending and this made me roll back a save. Was playing for 5 hours and had to re-do all my progress. Oh well speedrunned the progress back in 2 hours. Better than restarting a 109 hour run.

                                                    If you have Steam Cloud enabled, make sure to NOT close the game, go on Steam Cloud browser version(check google) to check your last saved session, which is probably just before you played and download the file. Then check online where the game save file are located and move your current save files to a backup folder just in case and paste your older save. Boot and replay your session. It's a harsh way to re-do all your progress, but at least you can safely continue your ending.

                                                      Just a heads up that if you do the wrong warp glitch to farum azula and skip the Morgott fight, you will NOT be able to get to frenzied flame door. There is a seal blocking the path that only opens if you kill morgott, yet you cant kill morgott if the capital has been turned to ash.

This is pretty annoying. It almost makes me want to drop the entire game.... guess I will finish it now and blame my own reckless bahviour for the ending.

                                                                  The crucible is stated multiple times to be a thing which housed all aspects of life.
                                                                  The Three Fingers want to remove all that separates, a state that Shabriri calls CHAOS.
                                                                  Now, would this mean that after the Frenzied Flame Ending, the Lands Between revert at some point to the Crucible of Life?

                                                                  • "Note: Receiving the Flame of Frenzy will prompt Melina to leave your party thinking that you are no longer fit." thank god, i don't want to do this ending but felt bad that melina would die, but now i'm relieved

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

The names would overwhelmingly imply some kind of former relationship or that they were even once a single entity that's somehow split, but as far as I can tell nothing in-game actually touches on this at all- and given Ranni's quest line more or less confirming there are multiple Two Fingers and they're all just like that normally, it seems like there might just not be anything there. I guess the Outer Gods just really like fingering people?

                                                                                      I was able to beat the boss, activate the Grace, go talk to the Three Fingers to get the flame, and then come back to get the Frenzied Flame ending.

                                                                                        Technically, you can stay on melinas side, get all her dialogue and change your mind at the very last second, returning to the three fingers door and accepting the flame.

                                                                                        I save scummed at the last grace with every mending rune and quest completed, so I got all endings in one go.

                                                                                        Call me a sadist, but the frenzied flame ending is the best souls ending of all time.

                                                                                        May chaos take the world and leave behind an empty slate for everything to start anew, perhaps better this time.

                                                                                        Ranni's ending is ****. She literally ushers in an age of "fear, suffering and eternal night".

                                                                                        The fact people think the frenzied ending is bad in comparison is evidence that they didn't understand the consequences.

                                                                                        Chaos is rebirth of the world via destruction of the tainted old, everyone else just wants their own age to rule. **** that. Nobody rules. We start over and see where the dice land. Everything gets another chance...you know...in a few eons when the cosmic dust settles.

                                                                                              Imagine Torrent would leave the player as well!

                                                                                              Not maiden and no horse!

                                                                                                  I opened the door, got the cutscene thinking "Hell yeah, now I actually look pretty cool," then I went straight to the grace and Melina started talking, but she wasn't rendering. After she left the menu for the grace didn't show up and I actually couldn't do anything other than scroll through my quick items. Eventually I decided to alt f4 and lost the mark/eyes, but the deed is done, so I locked myself into this ending 50 hours in (jumped on Millicent, so the needle's gone) without getting the only thing I wanted from it :(

                                                                                                  • Would have been nice to know that just opening the door locks you in. The way it's worded above makes it seem like it's an NPC like the Two Fingers, when it only *actually* exists in cutscene.

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

After you’re branded, on the next site of grace you rest at, Melina will appear and say you’re not worthy anymore and then promises to kill you before she disappears for good.
