While the quest itself isn’t particularly long, it’s not obvious where you need to go. And although the area itself is quite forgiving, getting to Morne Castle may seem impossible at first. Fortunately, this guide covers everything you need to know for each step. I tried to do this as spoiler-free as possible but proceed at your own risk.. Here’s how to complete the Elden Ring Irina quest and get through Castle Morne.
Elden Ring Irina location
Irina is located south of the Bridge of Sacrifice. You can approach the bridge from Agil Lake Grace South in the southern part of Limgrave and follow the road.
The bridge itself is heavily guarded, and when you get close, you will attract the fire of those who protect it. You can take out all the enemies here if you feel confident, otherwise use Torrent to get across to the other side. There is a Place of Grace to the right of the road on the far side, so head over here to activate it and rest there to drop any enemies that may have been chasing you.
From the newly activated Grace Sacrifice Bridge, return to the road and find Irina. Keep talking to her until you get a chance to deliver a letter to her father at Morne Castle.
How to get to Castle Morne in Elden Ring
Follow the road south. There are a few enemies along the way, but most of them can be avoided. A little further on, to the left of the road and next to the merchant, you will find the Castle Morne Rampart favor lot. It’s a good idea to rest here as the next part might get interesting.
When you enter the open area after the Place of Grace, you will see Morne Castle in front of you. There is an Elden Ring map fragment next to the pillar ahead of you, but you need to hurry up to grab it – massive arrows fired from the castle will begin to fire at you.
You can use the terrain to the right of the road to avoid being hit as you approach the castle. As you get closer, you will see a huge archer standing in front of the fortress. Despite his size, he is easy to kill. Just attack his ankles and he will fall down pretty quickly. Right at the entrance there is another place of grace.
Where to find Edgar
After relaxing on the Castle Morne Lift Site of Grace, take the elevator up to the castle. The courtyard ahead is full of enemies, so you have several options: you can clear the entire area if you decide you’re not overcrowded, or you can just sneak past them.
If you take the sneaky path, immediately go right as you exit the door and stay crouched. Climb up the pile of rubble (you have to get very close to one of the worshipers), but stick to the wall where you can. Once you pass them, follow the wall to the right to find a doorway.
Go through the room and go down the stairs and deal with the enemies, then use the stairs to go up. At the top, you’ll find more enemies fighting each other – you can safely ignore them and head right up the other stairs. Go to the middle of the rampart and drop down to the area below. The screenshots below should help you.
There are several enemies here that you will have to deal with. A couple of flying enemies can deal amazing damage if they hit you, so take them out with ranged weapons or magic. Once they’re done with, walk along the rampart overlooking the courtyard where you entered the castle, then up the steps until you reach a section of the wooden floor. Turn left and jump down here.
Take care of the enemies fighting here and follow the path until you reach a wooden staircase that follows outside of the tower ahead of you. Keep going up and you will find Edgar at the top. Talk to him until you have the opportunity to deliver Irina’s letter.
Leonin the Illegitimate
Where to find Leonina the Illegitimate
Go down the ladder and go back the way you came and climb back up to the shaft where you fell earlier. To the right of the wooden floor at the top there is a ladder. Turn left at the top, then look right to find a broken wall and a place of grace behind the castle just below. Activate it and rest if you need to.
From here, drop down to the rampart below and jump onto the grate section in the floor. Jump down through the gap and deal with the enemy below. There are a few enemies outside, but most of them can be backstabbed – just watch out for the stronger enemy at the other end of the passage, near the tower. When you reach the middle of this path, jump down to the roof below and then back down to the ground. Now head to the left and jump over rocky areas until you reach another shaft with a square hole in the floor.
You need to come down here, but you can use the horizontal beams to land. There are a lot of enemies downstairs, so you either want to pick a couple of them with ranged weapons before you make the final straw or hope you can dodge and get to the next Plot of Grace. Whichever way you choose, when you land at the bottom, run out the door and make a sharp left around the wall of the building. Here you will find a place of grace next to the Rampart prison. Activate it and rest as it is the last one before the boss fight.
Return to the front of the building and to the bridge. Instead of crossing, jump down to the beach, but be careful not to land too close to the jellyfish as they will become hostile. The boss door is straight ahead and you can summon Edgar to help you in the fight.
Note: If you didn’t talk to Edgar in the castle and give him Irina’s letter before defeating this boss, you will fail the quest.
Leonine Misbegotten can be a pretty tough fight. It moves fast and you need to be prepared to dodge a lot of rolls to avoid being staggered. Feel free to use summon ash to help you if he’s giving you problems. For your troubles, you will receive a great sword with a grafted blade, which is, in fact, your own part of the Iron Throne from the Game of Thrones.
Completion of the quest
How to complete Irina’s quest
Now you need to return to Edgar. It’s in the same location where you found it before you quickly traveled to the Castle Morne Lift Site of Grace and return to it. He will tell you that he is going to go to Irina.
Quickly travel to the Grace Sacrifice Bridge and head to where you first found Irina. Talk to Edgar here to complete the quest.
