You meet Varre at the start of the game, at the first Place of Grace you find when you leave the Lost Graveyard, but you won’t find it again until a bit later. Luckily, Varre doesn’t have as many steps as early quest, but there are a few obscure steps and you could very well get stuck trying to figure out where you need to go next. Here’s what you need to know to complete the Elden Ring Varre quest and how to get to Mogvin’s palace without it.

How to find the Rose Church and talk to Varre in Elden Ring
After you first speak to Varre at the First Step Place of Grace at the start of the game, you won’t find him again until you get to Liurnia of the Lake. It’s also worth noting that Stormvale Castle is skippable, but you need to defeat Godric, return to the Round Table Hold and talk to Enya, who is reading fingers. before you find it in this new location.
The pink church is on a small island almost directly south of Rai Lukaria Academy. When you speak to Varre, he asks for your opinion on what you saw in the Round Table Keep. If you choose “They seemed wrong”, he will hand over five Festering Bloodied Fingers and you can continue the quest. If you choose “They were great!” he will tell you that his job is done. You can talk to him again to change your mind.
Now you need to use Festering Bloody Fingers to invade other players three times. It doesn’t matter if you defeat those you invade, so don’t worry if you’re not very good at PvP. Once you complete this step, he will ask you to join his order. You can’t continue this quest if you don’t agree, so do so to get the Blood Lord’s Favor item.
Church of the Ban
Elden Ring Church of Inhibition: Lord of Blood’s Favor
Naturally, you need to infiltrate Lord of Blood’s Favor with the maiden’s blood. The easiest way to get to the Church of the Prohibition, on the east side of Liurnia and southwest of Grand Dectus Elevator. The fastest way to get here is from the north, so from the elevator area, use the Torrent to race up the hill towards the cliff-top church.
There are a lot of enemies you need to run through, but the biggest challenge here is the Flaming Tower of Madness nearby – if you’re familiar with the Nightmare of Mensis area in Bloodborne, you’ll get the idea. Impacting the tower causes a frenzy effect, so you need to see it as much as possible using the terrain. As soon as you pass through the village located on the slope, be ready to rush to the Place of Mercy in the church ahead, as you will be attacked by NPCs.
Once you’re safe in the Church of the Forbidden, look at the chair next to the Place of Grace. You can get the Finger Maiden Armor from the corpse on the chair, but more importantly, you can use Lord of Blood’s Favor here.
The alternative, which requires you to kill the Grafted Scion boss you encountered at the start of the game, is through the Four Bell Towers found northwest of the Raya Lucaria Academy. You can race through the giants that spawn here to reach the Place of Grace with four bell towers.
Take the Rigid Sword Key from the highest bell tower, then use it on the second tallest tower in the area. This will teleport you to the Grafted Scion. Once you defeat him, cross the bridge and go up the stairs to your left. You can use the girl’s corpse inside to get the girl’s blood.
Pureblood Knight Medal
Where to get the Pureblood Knight Medal
Whichever method you choose, return to Varra at the Rose Church. Talk to him and he will hand over the Bloody Finger item, then talk to him again to get the Pureblood Knight Medal. This medal is a reusable item and teleports you to Mogwin’s Palace, a late-game area in the Siofra River area, where you will face the Mog boss. It also happens that he is quite neat runic economy find.
If you teleport to the palace using this item, you will find an invasion call sign next to the Dynasty Mausoleum Middle Precinct of Finesse, which gives you the opportunity to invade and fight Varre. After defeating him, you will receive Bouquet Varre’s Hammer.
How to get to the Mogvin Palace without Varre
You can still get into Mogwyn’s Palace if you accidentally kill Varre before getting the Pureblood Knight’s Medal, but only later. There is a portal on the western edge of Giant’s Peak.
The nearest place of grace is the Yellow Anix Tunnel. From here, you need to head north, and once you get to this place, go to the edge of the cliff and find a path leading down a small slope to the south. The path is pretty well hidden by slanted stone pillars – the map above should help you find it.
Once you find the portal, use it to teleport into the dark tunnel. Follow the path until you come to a rock next to the Mogwin Palace.
