In this Elden Ring deathroot guide, we’ll show you how to find Gurranq, Beast Clergyman and how to use deathroot to get rewards from him at the Bestial Sanctum. We’ll also show you the location of all nine deathroots in the Lands Between.

Elden Ring’s deathroot is a special item that is only used with Gurranq. You’ll get them in several dungeons and for defeating Tibia Mariners.


Meet D, Hunter of the Dead

As you ride east along the road across northern Limgrave, you’ll find an NPC named D, Hunter of the Dead about halfway between the Saintsbridge and Summonwater Village Outskirts sites of grace.

He’ll tell you about how dangerous Summonwater Village is. If you ignore him and defeat the Tibia Mariner there, you’ll get a deathroot and he’ll move to Roundtable Hold.

Speaking to him at Roundtable Hold and showing him the deathroot will make him mark a location on your map — a waygate that teleports you to the Bestial Sanctum.


Gurranq, Beast Clergyman and the Bestial Sanctum

At the Bestial Sanctum in Caelid, you’ll meet Gurranq, Beast Clergyman. In exchange for each deathroot you give him, he’ll reward you with a seal and several bestial incantations, along with other beast-themed rewards.

Elden Ring deathroot rewards

When you hand over the fourth deathroot to him, he’ll attack you. You’ll have to fight him until his health drops enough that he surrenders and becomes a merchant again.
