You’ll come across plenty of unique non-playable characters throughout your journey across The Lands Between. Here, we have listed all of them along with where to find them.
Elden Ring is FromSoftware’s latest medieval fantasy action RPG. Throughout your journey across The Lands Between, you will meet NPCs that you can interact with. They can be merchants you can trade with, or they can give you various side quests. And if conversations go south, they can even become enemies you have to kill.
Killing these NPCs can sometimes yield you unique rewards and runes. However, killing them off too early might cut you off from any future side quests that you would have otherwise gotten from them. That’s why you should interact with them reasonably until or unless they are out looking for a fight. In this guide, we will list all the NPCs you can find in Elden Ring, along with their locations.
