Elden Ring: How to Complete White-Faced Varré's Quest and Get the Pureblood Knight's Medal
On this page, we're going to explain how to complete White-Faced Varré's Quest and Get the Pureblood Knight's Medal. We'll include a walkthrough of where to find White-Faced Varré, what you need to do after speaking to him, and the steps you need to follow in order to obtain the Pureblood Knight's Medal.
How to Find White-Faced Varré
White-Faced Varré will almost certainly be one of the first NPCs you speak to in Elden Ring, immediately after the Site of Grace named The First Step. After speaking with him, he'll request you kill Godrick the Grafted, and there's nothing more you can do here until you've figured out How to Complete Stormveil Castle and gained access to the Roundtable Hold.
Assuming you've done all that, speak to Enia, who's located next to Two Fingers in the Roundtable Hold. The door to Two Fingers only opens after you've defeated Godrick the Grafted, so you can't progress this quest any earlier.
You'll find him standing outside the doorway, and you'll need to tell him that Two Fingers Seemed Off. Don't worry if you select the other option, as you can simply speak to him again and tell him you've changed your mind. In reward for this, he'll give you the Festering Bloody Finger, and encourage you to use it.
How to Invade and Use the Festering Bloody Finger
In order to continue White-Faced Varré's questline, you're going to need to use the Festering Bloody Fingers he gave you to learn How Multiplayer and Summons Work. Effectively, you're going to want to Invade another player's game three times. It doesn't matter whether you win the battle — although keep in mind you will lose any Runes if you don't — but you do need to infiltrate another player's game three times.
To use the Festering Bloody Finger, simply highlight it in your Inventory and select Use. We had the most luck in the Church of Elleh area, but you can try this anywhere on the map really. Again, you don't need to win the fights, although you may as well give it your best while you're here.
Once you've Invaded three different players, regardless of the outcome, return to White-Faced Varré and he'll be so pleased with your efforts that he'll give you the Lord of Blood's Favor, assuming you tell him to Anoint Me. He wants you to soak it in the blood of a Maiden, which you can do at the Church of Inhibition.
Soak the Lord of Blood's Favor at the Church of Inhibition
When you arrive, collect the Sacred Tear and then interact with the Maiden for the Finger Maiden Fillet. You'll be prompted to Dye Cloth with Maiden's Blood, transforming the Lord of Blood's Favor a crimson red.
Return to White-Faced Varré one last time at the Rose Church and offer him your finger. While it may seem like a trap, he'll give you a permanent Bloody Finger, allowing you to Invade without restriction as and when you please. Talk to him one more time, however, and he'll also give you the Pureblood Knight's Medal, which you can use to get to Mohgwyn Palace, one of the Best Locations to Farm Runes to Level Up Fast.
