White Mask Varré is an NPC in Elden Ring. White Mask Varré is encountered near the start of the game, right by The First Step Site of Grace, and will offer advice to the player. He can be found multiple times in different locations as the story progresses.

 

 Oh yes... Tarnished, are we? Come to the Lands Between for the Elden Ring, hmm?
Of course you have. No shame in it.
Unfortunately for you, however, you are maidenless.

 

White Mask Varré Location in Elden Ring

White Mask Varré can be found in various locations throughout your adventure:

  1. He will be the very first NPC you speak to at the beginning of the game. Found in Limgrave, by The First Step Site of Grace. [Map Link]
  2. After obtaining any of the Great Runes, and talking to Enia for the first time at the Roundtable Hold, White Mask Varré can be found at Rose Church, on a large island in the southwest of Liurnia. [Map Link]

 

 

White Mask Varré Questline: How to complete White Mask Varré's Quest

  • Awards you the Festering Bloody Finger upon meeting him the second time at Rose Church
    • You must have met the two fingers in the round table hold for him to move to the church.
  • After obtaining the item, players can choose to progress the questline in two ways:
    • With patch 1.06 a new invasion sign of the NPC Magnus the Beast Claw can be found in one of the ruined buildings in Writheblood Ruins, surrounded by a pack of bloodhounds. Once the NPC is defeated, the player can return to White Mask Varré at Rose Church to progress the quest. If you prefer to choose the next option of performing this step, you will not lose the opportunity to fight this NPC.
    • Invading other players using the Festering Bloody Finger three times (note: using Recusant Finger will NOT work). It is not required to defeat the invaded player; using Finger Severer right after invading the enemy world also counts.
  • After completing one of the tasks above, Varré will ask you to join his order with the Bloody Lord. If you agree, he will give you the Lord of Blood's Favor item, requesting you soak it in the blood of a maiden.
  • Once you return with the blood-soaked Favor, he rewards with a reusable Bloody Finger. If you speak with him again, you will receive the Pureblood Knight's Medal that can lead to Mohgwyn's palace where you can fight Mohg, Lord of Blood. This is the earliest access to Mohg boss fight. One can also access several rune farming spots quite early via this method. Killing Varré at this point does not reward Varré's Bouquet, but it does reward 6 Festering Bloody Fingers.
  • An invasion sign can be found near the Mausoleum Dynasty Midpoint Site of Grace allowing you to fight White Mask Varré.
  • After defeating him, look back into the corridor where you found his invasion sign. His wounded body will be on the floor as he gasps for strength from Mohg. He will die after you exhaust his dialogue, and you can collect 6 Festering Bloody Fingers and Varré's Bouquet off his corpse.
  • Note: If killed, Varré cannot be respawned at church of Vows therefore making his questline incompletable, although you can still reach Mohgwyn's palace with a hidden teleporter North-North-West of the Yelough Anix Tunnel in Consecrated Snowfield. [Map Link]

 

Dialogue in Elden Ring: White Mask Varré

§Introduction

  • Oh yes... Tarnished, are we? Come to the Lands Between for the Elden Ring, hmm?
    Of course you have. No shame in it.
    Unfortunately for you, however, you are maidenless.
    Without guidance, without the strength of runes, and without an invitation to the Roundtable Hold...
    You are fated, it seems, to die in obscurity.
  • Luckily for you, however, there is one shining ray of hope for even the maidenless.
    Me. Varré. Take care to listen.
    Are you familiar with grace? The golden light that gives life to you Tarnished.
    You may also behold its golden rays pointing in a particular direction at times.
    That is the guidance of grace. The path that a Tarnished must travel.
    Mm, indeed. Grace's guidance holds the answers.
    It will lead you Tarnished to the path you are meant to follow.
    Even if it leads you to your grave.
  • Grace's guidance will reveal the path forward, most certainly.
    To Castle Stormveil, over on the cliff.
    The home of the decrepit demigod, Godrick the Grafted.
  • It's time you set off, I should think.
    To Castle Stormveil, on the cliff, where grace would guide you.
    If you seek the Elden Ring, maidenless as you are.

If attacked

  • Oh?
  • Do you even comprehend the gravity of this choice?
  • Very well. If you mistake kindness for frailty of heart, then perhaps a more physical lesson is in order!
  • (On player kill) You will die nameless, without ceremony.

Visit

  • What's the matter? Shouldn't you be off proving yourself, or some such? Then go on, take the hint and follow the guidance of grace. To castle Stormveil, on the cliff. And if, by chance you do find your way to the castle, you may receive a summons. To the famed Roundtable Keep...

After defeating Margit, The Fell Omen and accessing to Roundtable Hold

  • Ohh, well done, well done indeed. You made it through that entire mess, all the way to Stormveil.
    And off you trotted to the Roundtable Hold... My sincerest congratulations.
    But, how did you find the Roundtable? Oh, you don't have to say it.
    Before, the Roundtable was chock full of venerated warriors, but now, it's home to puff-chests and has-beens.
    I fear you've been terribly disappointed. I don't blame you.
    But still, the Roundtable has its perks. Why not earn a seat?
    Fly straight and true, so to speak.

§Choosing "I'll fly straight and true!"

  •  Ahh, then you're interested? A wise choice indeed.
    To join the Roundtable proper, you must acquire a Great Rune,
    and request audience... with the Two Fingers, in the inner chamber.
    They are the purported masters of the grace that guides your kind, the Tarnished.
    Mm, yes, pay them a visit, so that you may see for yourself.
  • Challenge Godrick the Grafted, lord of Stormveil, to acquire a Great Rune.
    Decrepit, he may be, but a demigod he remains. And of course, an inheritor of a Great Rune.
    Worse yet, I hear old Godrick's acquired a ferocious new toy to graft...
    So. Prepare for the worst.

Choosing "I don't need a seat"

  • ... Yes, I see. Perhaps it's just as well. Besides, you are maidenless. One can only do so much with the materials provided. But then again, if you should realize the error of your ways, I'm always willing to hear you out.

Talking again, after choosing "I don't need a seat"

  • Oh, have you decided to have a go after all? At joining the round table proper?

Visit after 

  • What's the matter? Aren't you supposed to be earning your place at the Roundtable Hold?
    Then you must face Godrick the Grafted, lord of Stormveil,for without a Great Rune,
    you will not be granted audience. With the Two Fingers, in the inner chamber.

Visit after killing Godrick or obtaining any other Great Rune

  • Ah, there you are. You claimed a Great Rune, and had your audience. With the Two Fingers, at the Roundtable Hold. What was your impression? 

Choosing "They didn't seem right"

  • Ah-ha, your intuition serves you well. My doubts had been piling up, you see… The words of the Two Fingers cannot be trusted. Truly, naught but rambling, senile delusions. I believe, that when the Elden Ring was shattered, the Two Fingers were corrupted, their guidance; skewed. Even worse, the Fingers harbor no love for our kind. That's the part that irks the most.

Choosing "They were magnificent"

  • You don't say. Well, what a relief that must be. You may go, then. My work here is done. May the wisdom of the two fingers guide you.

Receiving the Fingers

  • Oh, I have a gift for you, something fit for only the wise. A means for circumventing the draw of the Two Fingers. Give it a try, won't you? And if it please you, may we meet again. I've high hopes for you. My lambkin. Be sure to try that finger I gave you. There's no reason to dither. 

Visit at the Rose Church, after using the Finger three times.

  • Oh, lambkin, so pleased you're here. I'm glad you're enjoying my gift. Mmm, I knew from the very start. You have a taste for noble blood. 
  • I wish to anoint you a proper inductee. A knight to serve Luminary Mohg, the Lord of Blood, and establish a new dynasty. Luminary Mohg has strength, vision, and of course, love. So, what do you say, my lambkin?

Choosing "Anoint me."

  • Mm, yes, who would have it any other way? Now, take this. For your final trial. Soak the cloth with a maiden's blood. Normally, this ritual would involve killing one's own maiden, and recanting the wisdom of the Two Fingers. But since you are maidenless, the blood of anyone's maiden will do.

Choosing "Refuse."

  • Oh my. Perhaps you misheard me. Nothing wrong with giving you a day or two. For your ears to clear out.

After returning with the blood-soaked Favor.

  • Ahh, my lambkin. You've completed your final trial. And with this, you are a formal inductee. A knight who will assist Luminary Mohg, the Lord of Blood, in the establishment of a new dynasty. Now, give me your finger. This noble blood will be an immutable badge of honor, once it settles. Inside of you.

Upon offering finger.

  • Oh, good heavens. Clench your teeth, or something.

After receiving Bloody Finger.

  • Never forget that feeling of agony. For it is what binds you to Luminary Mogh, to all of us. Ha ha ha... You have the sweetest scream. My lambkin.

Talking again, after offering finger and receiving Bloody Finger.

  • Oh another thing. You should have this.

After receiving Pureblood Knight's Medal.

  • A medal granted by the new Mohgwyn dynasty. With the power to grant audience with Luminary Mohg. I've gone out of my way to provide one to you. But you mustn't use it just yet.
  • The meeting must wait until the Mohgwyn dynasty commences. Luminary Mohg yet slumbers beside the Divinity. We must endure a little longer.

Talking again, after receiving Pureblood Knight's Medal but before using it.

  • Ahh, it is trying, but we must be patient. One day, you will be elevated, deservedly, basking in love. Right, my lambkin? Ha ha ha...

Upon invading him near the Mausoleum Dynasty Midpoint grace.

  • You seek violence, heedless of my warning, though you have been raised to a knight of the dynasty? I am pained, to the very depths of my being. I'll ensure you regret this, my lambkin. Enjoy your miserable death.

  Death.

  • You maidenless runt... Who do you think I am?  <Groan>

When killed while invading him.

  • Why must I be... disgraced by this lowborn

Final dialogue when talked to after invading him

  • O... Luminary... Mohg...
    Please grant... the strength... you promised
    I have given... everything...
    Please... my lord...
  • Please, answer me... Luminary... Mohg.
    ...
    A-ahh...
    Bless the Mohgwyn Dynasty, with love!

 

Elden Ring Notes & Trivia for White Mask Varré

        "Feel free to go off and die in a ditch somewhere."

  • Cannot be revived at Church of Vows, like most dead NPCs.
  • He wears the War Surgeon Set, which drops from one of the three Nameless White Mask invaders in Mohgwyn Dynasty Mausoleum.
  • The War Surgeon Set's description implies that Mohg originally had the surgeons abducted against their will; Varré included. It details that none of the other White Masks he had taken were able to "tame the accursed blood", but that Varré was the exception. This could be related to Varré's deep loyalty to Mohg and his upcoming Dynasty.

      Does anyone know what happens if you go on to defeat Mohg WITHOUT invading and killing Varre? Is there additional dialogue or does he reappear later?

      • Anonymous

        A lot of people will be playing seamless coop. His quest still works, and not only with Magnus. Very sensibly, any of the NPCs you invade will count toward this. Invading to help Yura is the earliest and most natural in progression. The early Volcano Manor target is another. There are of course others through quests....... NOTE - NPC invasions seem to (sensibly) require separating and completing individually.

        May require more than one or not - It has changed a bit over time, If you are having trouble read more about current version of seamless. Doing the Yura invasion or Volcano manor gives a certain flavour, whatever the current version does, if that matters for you.

          Could be a bug, but he took damage and aggro'd me when I cast Blessing of the Erdtree near me.

          I know that BotEt also damages wraithcallers, but again, not sure if the one with Varre was a bug or not.

            For some reason in my game, instead of doing the harmful stereotype pose in Limgrave, he is just... Standing there.

              For any offline peeps trying to get to the Mohgwyn Dynasty Mausoleum super early: you don't have to actually defeat Magnus the Beast Claw. Just invade, then either let him pancake you, or use the Finger Severer three times total. I've done this on two different characters and it works.

              So you could actually lean on all your summons in the Radahn fight at a low level, and then use the tip above to get to one of the best farming spots in the game as soon as possible.

                Give up your inquiries which are completely useless, and consider these words a second warning.

                    Is he immune to deathblight? I tried using Fia's Mist on him and it did nothing even as he stood right in it.

                      I just killed Magnus, but the quest is not progressing, Varre is still telling me to "remember to use his gift"

                        You don’t have to kill Magnus to advance the quest. You can just invade him three times and die each time and it’ll work as well

                          Varre does not seem to say his "Visit" dialogue anymore. After your initial meeting with him at the start of the game, he will dontinue to repeat "It's time you set off, I should think. To Castle Stormveil, on the cliff, where grace would guide you. If you seek the Elden Ring, maidenless as you are." Once you beat Margit and go to Roundtable, he then moves on to the next sequence of dialogue. So his "Visit" dialogue should be removed from this page.

                            Still can't believe I missed the Bravo gesture simply because I was so focused on getting the Bloodied Finger. I missed out on arguably the best gesture in the game, and now I'm coping, seething, AND malding!

                              After killing Mohg, the Names White Mask spawn points disappear. It's pretty stupid, I think - particularly since the Church of Vows does not restore them.

                                I wish he had more interactions and a better quest line, one of the best voice acted characters in the game imo

                                  Ok, i think i need to repeat this point regarding the invasion part of the questline: invasions in volcano manor does count for this questline, AS LONG AS THE CONTRACT TO FULLFILL TURNS YOU INTO A RED PHANTOM TO KILL THE SPECIFIED TARGETS IN THE CONTRACT. It's also imprescindible to keep the invasion's rewards in the inventory, so don't spend a rune arc/furlcalling finger remedy before reporting to varre. It does work, it did work for 2 of my offline characters and just did for the 3rd one. If it didn't work for you, check your steps one by one. Stop blaming the game for your laziness.

                                    I live in a pretty rural area with NAT 3 type wifi, so before the patch I had to haul ass 20 minutes down the road so I could use a relatives internet to progress this quest. Worth it though! I love Varré’s dialogue, his VA did a wonderful job

                                      I find it odd that they added an optional option to the quest to invade NPCs like months later, I feel this should've been in the game at the start especially that people play this game offline or won't do pvp, idk that's just me.

                                        I just realised instead of killing Magnus the Beast Claw, you can just die to him until you run out of fingers. It also counts

                                            The quest he gives to invade another world is currently bugged. It took 3 fingers to get credit for it, as I would join a world and nothing would happen. After the third try and a bit of waiting, I went back and received credit for it. At this point in the game, they should remove this quest as there are not enough people online to make it worthwhile.

                                              It should really be stated that doing his quest gives the character red blood eyes, overriding dragon eyes you might have had previously. And no, they cannot be switched between at Fia's Mirror/Renalla's Rebirth. Unless there will be an update to cycle through previously unlocked cosmetics, this detail should be highlighted in the guide.

I did speak to him at first steps, but he hasn't shown up at the Rose Church... Is he not supposed to if you already did his quest on a previous journey? I don't really care for doing the rest of his quest, but I was hoping to get the pureblood knight's medal early on.

I'll disrespect your entire dynasty and its ruler.

On this note, if you progress her questline enough, she dies 'naturally' at the hands of some misbegotten. After this had occurred I could not use her blood for the Lord of Blood's Favor, so I'm assuming you actually have to kill her outright for that. Kind of a bummer

                                                                  • Anonymous

I somehow got this dialog in Patch 1.06 after I received the pure blood knight metal and killed him immediately at the church. I never got it again after several more attempts to get the dialog in future runs.

Watching him beg for his dead god that i killed probably feels a lot more satisfying than killing him BEFORE Mohg, so long assh0le, may you AND Mohg rot in the ocean of a trillion bloodflies!

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          I don't know if this is common knowledge but it isn't explicitly explained here and it is relevant to anyone doing a NG+? playthrough. I did Varre's quest before 1.06 and my first priority in starting my first NG+ last week was to head straight to Altus plateau right after I killed Godrick to get the giant crusher because the chest was bugged and empty for the entirety of my first playthrough. I also went to writheblood ruins for a third great-stars and the red NPC invasion sigil allowed me to invade and kill Magnus. I wasn't playing offline and I hadn't spoken to Varre outside the rose church before invading Magnus. I didn't interact with any grace checkpoints at Altus plateau while I was there.
                                                                          The interesting bit is I spoke to Varre at rose church earlier and he gave me festering finger or whatever. I switched to offline play on start-up and reloaded I hadn't invaded any players but Varre acted like I had followed the steps of his quest and the three invasions and he gave me the pureblood knights medal.
                                                                          This means anyone on a + playthrough can quickly and easily get access to the fat coinpurse rune farm down the hill from the palace approach ledge-road grace.

During his quest, tarnished originally have to kill their own maiden to prove their loyalty to Mohgwyn. But Varre alters this rule because the player has no maiden - which makes it super easier. (I mean, player would not join/betray varre so easily if they have to kill Melina, right?) There is no reason for him to get his hands dirty at all - why kill himself when he can just make someone kill instead? Also, Varre is not even close to our dead maiden, those two places are a thousand miles away. Plus, Melina also immediately knows you are maidenless, did Melina also kill our maiden?

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    • Anonymous

Such as one of the bloody fingers invading through the yura quest line. Entirely possible that it was actually Eleonora who killed your maiden after going mad from pursuing dragon Communion, and then being approached by Varre. Possible it was narijas too, but I feel like the fact he's wearing sanguine noble robes kind of implies a long service, but that's entirely just assuming on my part, not really anything to back that up. But with the available information I feel more comfortable assuming it was Eleonora to kill your maiden(with Varre's encouragement) over the possibility of it being Varre.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

Varre here resembles the Londor Pale Shade, who wore the white robes of a cleric and a smugly smirking mask, while in truth being an assassin. The Pale Shade served Yuria, who wanted a Lord of Hollows to usurp the power of the First Flame; similarly, Varre serves Mohg, who wants to usher in a new dynasty with Miquella as the supreme God instead of Marika. While Yuria's quest does not directly involve invasion - Leonhard's does - invasion is closely tied to the Darkwraiths, who drop cracked red eye orbs and pale tongues, and wield the Dark Hand, which Yuria exclusively can sell to you; the Darkwraiths, it can be inferred, are surviving people of Londor. Additionally, the Pale Shades invade you several times if you do not serve Yuria, and if you go to the Dynasty Palace against Varre's insistence that you wait, several White Masks invade you.

Like ask him to use clean clippers to cut off your finger? Maybe if they had some kinda bloodflame effect I wouldn't mind but I prefer the dragon eyes that these overwrite

He also is a bloody finger whos initiation process involves killing a maiden to join Mohgwyn Knighthood. Environmental storytelling is indicating that he could very well be responsible for our maiden's death. Unless you want his Bouquet weapon, I'd recommend killing the weaselly nance after he gives you the Pureblood Knight's Medal.
