How to Get the Frenzied Flame in Elden Ring

There are a number of endings for players to unlock in Elden Ring. These endings range from simple and easy to unlock to more hidden and obscure. One of the endings players can unlock has them being afflicted with the Frenzied Flame. This flame is fairly well hidden and hard to find if you don’t know where to look. Use our how to get the Frenzied Flame in Elden Ring guide below to learn more about it. Major spoilers below.

Important Info Before We Begin

To reach the Frenzied Flame you need to advance the story until you reach the Royal Capital of Leyndell. At this point you can visit the sewers of the capital. It is inside the sewers where you travel to reach the Frenzied Flame. Keep in mind you can visit the sewers of the Royal Capital or the Ashen Capital. When you accept the Frenzied Flame impacts what happens at the Forge of the Giants:

  1. Accept the flame before burning the Erdtree and Melina will leave your side. You burn yourself at the forge.
  2. Accept it after burning the Erdtree and Melina will burn herself at the forge (like the standard story).

Regardless of which outcome you select, the endings are still fairly similar. So keep that in mind when you make your decision. Also keep in mind that getting the Frenzied Flame locks you into a set ending unless you get Miquella’s Needle to reverse the effect. This means completing Millicent’s questline and beating the hardest boss in the game.

Also to access the flame ensure you beaten Morgott. Otherwise there is a seal on the door that will not let you pass through it. Once Morgott is defeated the seal breaks and you can access the platforming puzzle section.
