In Elden Ring, players will come across various NPCs that have significant roles in the main storyline. You will need to complete the questlines for some of these NPCs to get alternate endings after defeating the Elden Beast in the endgame. Ranni the Witch is one of these NPCs, and players will need to complete her questline to get the Age of Stars ending.
To start Ranni’s questline, players will need to reach Ranni’s Rise at the Three Sisters region. You will have to navigate through Caria Manor to reach the Three Sisters. This area is heavily guarded by several hand-like creatures and other enemies. Make your way towards the Royal Moongazing Grounds Site of Grace to find the entrance to the Three Sisters.
After entering the Three Sisters from Caria Manor, players will have to make their way towards Ranni’s Rise to interact with the NPC. Follow the white circle on the map image above to reach this location quickly. Ranni’s questline consists of various stages, and you will have to complete them all before returning to the Elden Throne to fight the final bosses.
Players will need to unlock Nokron, the Eternal City after defeating General Radahn, as several quests from Ranni’s questline will lead to this underground region. Similarly, you will also need to defeat Astel, Naturalborn of the Void, one of the strongest bosses in Elden Ring during the final stages of Ranni’s questline.
