Here’s how you can complete the Kenneth Haight questline in Elden Ring. There’s plenty to do to get the rightful ruler in the throne room!
Elden Ring’s map is huge. Not only does it have plenty of locations, dungeons, and catacombs to explore, but the world also has plenty of interesting NPCs, each with their own story.
One of the NPCs you’ll come across pretty early in your game is Kenneth Haight, the self-proclaimed rightful ruler of Limgrave and you’ll have to help him get into the throne room.
Here’s how you can complete the Kenneth Haight questline in Elden Ring!

Elden Ring Kenneth Haight Quest Guide
- Firstly, you need to speak to Kenneth Haight on a collapsed building just northwest of the Mistwood Outskirts in East Limgrave.
- Next, head south to Fort Haight and defeat all of the enemies there. Make sure you kill the leader who is on the roof too.
- Also, don’t miss the Golden Seed location outside!
- After you’ve done this, return to Kenneth Haight. He will give you an Erdsteel Dagger and then head to Fort Haight himself.
- Go to meet Kenneth on the roof of Fort Haight and he will ask you to find a lord to manage the fort.
- The next part of the Kenneth Haight questline requires you to beat Margit, the Fell Omen, as you need access to Stormveil Castle.
- If you haven’t defeated Godrick the Grafted yet, go to find Nepheli Loux near the Liftside Chamber Site of Grace in Stormveil Castle. She is in a small room on the east side of the castle.
- However, if you have already beaten Godrick, speak to her in Roundtable Hold and progress the Nepheli Loux questline to the point where you give her the Stormhawk King Ashes.
- Important: Do not give Selvius’ potion to Nepheli Loux.
- After doing all of this, you can then meet both Kenneth Haight and Nepheli in the throne room of Stormveil Castle to conclude the questline. Kenneth says he will return to Fort Haight one day to make you a knight.
- NOTE: Despite his claims, Kenneth will not return to Fort Haight in-game, nor make you a knight. Perhaps we’ll see this addition in the future as part of Elden Ring’s DLC.

How do you get Kenneth to return to his fort and actually make you a knight?

Unfortunately, despite Kenneth saying that he'll return to his fort and make you a knight, this event never actually happens in the game! Perhaps we could see it as part of a future DLC update.
