Gestures in Elden Ring are a useful tool to express yourself to other players, some including a vocal performance or making sound. Up to six can be bound to a shortcut menu just below the pouch.

Certain Gestures are involved in unlocking secret areas or equipment. These Secrets often come with prompts which allude to, or directly reference, specific gestures.

      It would be pretty neat to have that clawing-at-your-eyes-pose you do when you die from madness as a gesture

        Are the emotes for online only or do they serve some purpose in the non-CoOp single player mode?

          use "Hoslow's Oath" with no item in hand to flex your muscles respectfully, like a sort of "we've got this comrade" kinda dealio

              Geez, if I want all the gestures I must basically keep the wiki page open all the time...
              I don't play very often, taking a few week breaks from time to time. So my characters keep missing Reverential Bow and Hoslow Oath, because apparently hostile NPCs are now anime villains who "mUsT cOmPLetE tHeiR BS bEfOrE tHe fIgHt" and I get punished for attacking them on sight....
              I also miss Bravo often, since it's so out of your way to find and it disappears if you talk to Varré...

                We get fourteen different cries/yells that all mean the same thing but the ‘no’ gesture from DS2 hasn’t been seen since. Just like most other people I CoOp with, I don’t understand what From is thinking.

                • Anonymous

                  'Balled Up' is incorrect - you don't HAVE to rebirth, you can just enter her cosmetic menu and click 'Finish.'

                  That's kind of important for Level 1 bros and for characters that have no larval tears or simply want to avoid a re-spec.

                    Wish there was a well known gesture that meant no ill-will because invaders frequently think me and host are a gank squad (either that or they're really toxic) when we're really trying to progress the level but need to stay in place to kill them (bad for your health to be hunted by an invader the whole level)

                      I miss that "flexing" gesture that the ds3 hackers used to use all the time at pontiff sulyvahn. It was so funny.

                        I wish they would put in blood borne ROAR me and my friends would spam it after a boss and it was hilarious. It be nice and they already have the animations in the game.

                          Even if someone is awkward with using gestures, I’ll take a happy jump, running in circles, or even a swift crouch over a Host looking away after I help them finish the boss. Ah, well…
                          There’s a couple of times where I died a heartbeat before boss, and the Host ran over to were I died and just stood there. It said it all, without gestures.

                            I don't know where else to ask this, but I'm wondering about gestures beyond the ones listed here: running in circles, wagging shields or weapons, etc. (feel free to add anything)
                            I love the multiplayer energy, but sometimes I wish I knew what exactly I'm communicating.

                              Just a note - You actually need to let Juno Hoslow do the gesture in order to get it, similar to getting Alberich's. I didn't know this and sprinted right up and decked him. Now he's dead and no gesture acquired.

                                I got the balled up gesture even though I have never undergone rebirth, there must be something incorrect here.

                                  Random tangent: Its a blessing that fromsoftware characters hasn't made an appearance in fortnite. Gehrman, Artorias & Gwyn doing some braindead fortnite dance would be a questionable decision on from's part that would make us question what Miyazaki was on

                                    Is Patches' Crouch really obtainable in 1.05? I just did his quest where he returns to his cave after giving the Dancer's Castanets. I spared him (again) but didn't get the gesture after exhausting all his dialogue. I reloaded the area but he just sits there as a merchant.

                                      I am deeply saddened by the lack of shrugs and facepalms in Elden Ring. Look Skyward and Shrug were my favourite gestures from DS1 and there were so many moments throughout my first playthrough that I wanted to use them but couldn't. Elden's gestures are just so meh in comparison to the other games.

                                        I am writing through a translator. Who else has trouble with Elden's ring gesture? It's just that for me, the person who pre-ordered the game, the gesture stopped being given at the beginning of the game. Just curious to know if I'm the only one with this problem. Maybe it's some kind of bug, but it's too weird.

                                            Is it possible to get all of these in one play through? Are they ordered chronologically? What do I need to watch out for not to cancel other quests?

                                              I will say that I wish the execution of using gestures was different.

                                              Having the pouch on top looks great, but it becomes annoying to be navigating the menu so much when you wanna communicate pretty quickly

                                              Whatever, it’s controller button practice

Elden ring is easier as dark souls, I know, but at least dhow some dignity when playong online pvp. Guys eho t-bag shoe that they dont have the slightest morale or respect. They are shaming themselves.

                                                    • I think there may be some kind of gesture puzzle in Sellia Crystal Tunnel that i couldnt find mentioned anywhere. in the room with the faithful canvas talisman, if you notice the kindred of rot before they attack, they seem to be worshipping the empty alter in front of them. I though this was strange so after killing them i jumped up onto the alter using the barrel and mimicked them using the erudition gesture. there was a strange humming noise that started but nothing happened. perhaps you need to wear a specific armor piece or something like the tower puzzle for the same gesture? or does this strange hum happen everywhere you use the gesture?

For example I made a Barbarian type character and the only gestures that seem to be appropriate are Fire Spur Me and Triumphant Delight. No Roar? No bellowing at the sky? Or maybe a double chest beat? That would be awesome, I hope Fromsoft is adding more gestures for DLC.

You can grovel, unlock extreme repentance, then he killed me. if you come back, he is again normal and you can talk. If you missed Extreme Repentance, you can get it this way.

I guess it doesn't count as an actual preorder? By the way, does it have to be a boss in your world, or can you just put down your sign and kill a boss in someone else's world to get the gesture? Thanks.

Seems like a pretty stupid promotion, especially when they originally advertised it as something that could be obtained in-game.

Looking at you, Dark Souls 3 - having to choose between Darkmoon Loyalty and Silvercat Ring against Proper Bow kinda sucked for my inner perfectionist.
