Elden Ring’s story is deeply woven into its world and NPCs, but sometimes it can be challenging to keep track of every major quest.
Fans have been trying to make sense of the Elden Ring lore and the story rooted deeply in the Lands Between.
Some of it can be seen by progressing through all the main story bosses, but a surprising amount can be missed by players looking just to finish the main story.
Elden Ring doesn’t make it simple either since there is not an easy way to track the progress of the different quests you’ll find. You’ll need to make do with some of the map elements FromSoftware offers.
But to make things easier for you, here is every major quest in Elden Ring and how to start it.
Did you know players can get six different endings in Elden Ring?

Where to Find Every Major Quest in Elden Ring
A lot of these quest lines can be affected by progressing the storyline through the main bosses. Make sure you are exhausting every NPC’s dialogue options thoroughly.
Some will not give you the quest or item until you’ve talked to them 2-3 times.
If you’re looking to complete the main storyline and become Elden Lord, check out our guide on how to beat Elden Ring.
White Mask Varre – Gain Early Access to Mohgwyn Palace
White Mask Varre is an NPC that many players are very familiar with. He appears at the very beginning of your adventure in Limgrave and gives you a very brief explanation of how Sites of Grace work.
He also mentions that your first order of business should be finding some maidens. Technically, he’s not wrong since finding Melina unlocks the Roundtable Hold and the ability to level up with runes.
But many players don’t know that White Mask Varre has a questline. This quest can be accessed once players have been granted an audience with the Two Fingers.
Players will be able to find him in the Rose Church, and progressing through his quest will grant players access to Mohgwyn Palace.
Mohgwyn Palace has one of the best endgame rune farming locations.
You will also have a chance to obtain revenge for his “maidenless” comments, and even one of the best helms for the OP Vampire Build.
