How do you complete Preceptor Seluvis's quest in Elden Ring? Preceptor Seluvis is an NPC you'll first be introduced to during Ranni the Witch's quest in Ranni's Rise. He'll insinuate that you should meet with him physically, at Seluvis's Rise which is also in the Three Sisters area. Doing so triggers a quest, and as part of our Elden Ring guide, we're going to explain how to complete Preceptor Seluvis's quest.

Elden Ring: How to Complete Preceptor Seluvis's Quest
On this page, we're going to explain how to complete Preceptor Seluvis's quest. We'll include a walkthrough of where to find Preceptor Seluvis and what to do with Seluvis's Potion.
How to Find Preceptor Seluvis
In order to find Preceptor Seluvis, you'll need to learn How to Complete Caria Manor and progress Ranni the Witch's quest. As part of this quest you'll meet with a spectre of Seluvis for the first time, and he'll encourage you to visit him at Seluvis's Rise, which is just south-east of Ranni's Rise. Speak with him there and he'll give you Seluvis's Potion, and task you with administering it to Nepheli Loux.
Take Seluvis's Potion to Nepheli Loux
You'll first encounter Nepheli Loux shortly before Godrick the Grafted at Stormveil Castle. Speak with her and she'll be summonable for boss fight. She'll later return to the Roundtable Hold, in the corridor opposite Gideon Ofnir, before the Twin Maiden Husks. If you speak with her here, you'll be able to offer her Seluvis's Potion, but she won't accept it, and she'll tell you she has work to do. This will move her to the Village of the Albinaurics, where you'll need to learn How to Beat Omenkiller.
Meet with Nepheli Loux at the Village of the Albinaurics
If you can't find Nepheli Loux at the Roundtable Hold, or you've already completed the steps above, then she'll likely be perched under a bridge just east of the Village of the Albinaurics. Exhaust all of her dialogue and then forge ahead for the fight against Omenkiller. It's worth noting that, if you haven't already, you may meet with Old Albus on the way. Make sure you've killed Omenkiller, and then return to the Roundtable Hold.
Speak with Gideon and Make a Decision
Assuming you've followed this correctly, Nepheli Loux will now be located at the bottom of the staircase, past the blacksmith, in the Roundtable Hold. She'll be crouched down next to the left wall, and won't be especially responsive.
Return to Gideon Ofnir, who's in the library room left before the Twin Maiden Husks, and ask him about Nepheli's Despair. You'll then have the option to Show Him Seluvis's Potion and finally you'll be able to Hand Over Seluvis's Potion. For the purposes of this guide, we got Gideon Ofnir to dispose of it, but it's worth noting there are a number of different paths you can take here. You can give Seluvis's Potion to Nepheli Loux or even feed it to Dung Eater. Having Gideon Ofnir dispose of it allows you to continue Preceptor Seluvis' quest, however, without prematurely ending another quest. Crucially, Preceptor Seluvis will be hoodwinked, thinking you fed Seluvis's Potion to Nepheli Loux all along.
Progress Sorceress Sellen's Quest
There is overlap here with how to complete Sorceress Sellen's quest. At one point during Sorceress Sellen's quest, you'll need to enter a basement concealed by an illusory floor. Down here there'll be a message from Preceptor Seluvis telling you not to touch one of his Puppets. This Puppet, as it turns out, is Sorceress Sellen, and you need to use Sellen's Primal Glintstone on her to bring her back to life. Make sure you've completed this quest, or at the very least discovered the secret chambers, in order to continue Preceptor Seluvis' quest.
Return to Preceptor Seluvis and Get Your Puppet
Up until this point Preceptor Seluvis won't said a word to you. Now, however, you can talk to him About Nepheli and About Your Chambers and he'll let you pick a Puppet of your own. These, as you may have guessed, are effectively Summon Spirits. Pick the one you like and then exhaust all of his dialogue.
Eventually, he'll give you the option to purchase his Spells. Purchase all of them and tell him I Want a New Puppet. If you've followed all the steps correctly, he'll allow you to Obtain a Puppet with Starlight Shards. Buy one.
If you speak to Preceptor Seluvis again, you'll be able to ask About the Scheme, to which he'll reveal a plot that requires you to fetch him yet another item: an Amber Starlight. Tell him I'm Interested and exhaust all of his dialogue.
Where to Find an Amber Starlight
With all that done, you'll need to find an Amber Starlight; fortunately, it's not difficult. Head to the Altus Highway Junction in Altus Plateau and take a left, heading northwards, before the pathway to the capital. At the base of an elegant statue is an Amber Starlight, which you can now take back to Preceptor Seluvis.
Get the Magic Scorpion Charm and Decide Whether to Betray Ranni the Witch
If you take the Amber Starlight back to Preceptor Seluvis and exhaust all his dialogue, you'll be given the Magic Scorpion Charm, technically concluding the quest. However, if you'd like to take this further and betray Ranni the Witch, you can do so. Wait a little while then obtain the Amber Draught from Preceptor Seluvis and administer it to Ranni the Witch. Keep in mind that you will need to absolve your sins with a Celestial Dew at the Church of Vows should you do this in order to complete Ranni the Witch's quest.
