Elden Ring’s Roderika questline is one of the many side quests you will encounter in your journey through the open world of the video game developed by FromSoftware.
In this section of our Elden Ring guide, we will tell you where to find this Roderika, how to start and complete her questline, and what reward you will receive at the end.
Elden Ring Roderika Questline – How To Start
Roderika is first found sitting on the floor in the Stormhill Shack explained here, northwest of the Gatefront, next to the site of grace.
Exhaust all the dialogues with her, and you will receive a “Sitting Sideways” pose, and then she will give you Spirit Jellyfish Ashes, a Summon Spirit.
Between these dialogues, she will ask you to pass on a message for her if you see the little chrysalids in Stormveil Castle.
You will find out that all her little chrysalids died and left her the Chrysalids’ Memento that you have to deliver to Roderika.
Roderika’s Chrysalids Memento Location – Where To Find
You can find the Chrysalids’ Memento on your way through Castle Stormveil from Rampart Tower Site of Grace.
On your way to the Chrysalids’ Memento location, you will need to kill a couple of Bladed Talon Eagles, Banished Knights, Castle Guards, and a miniboss known as Grafted Scion.
After you kill this miniboss, while looking southwest, you will find the doorway to an outside area filled with bodies in the corner of the room.
At the top of the bodies, you will find what we were looking for, Chrysalids’ Memento.
Be aware of the two hounds guarding the bodies.
Roderika Location – Where To Find
After getting the Chrysalids’ Memento, return to Stormhill Shack and deliver it to Roderika.
Once you do that, if you leave her hut, she’ll disappear. So next time you look for her, Roderika will be present at the Roundtable Hold.
To receive a Golden Seed and complete the quest, look for Roderika in Roundtable Hold.
You will find her sitting next to the fireplace, near the site of grace.
Speak with Roderika first and then Master Smithing Hewg. Talk back and forth between the two until she agrees to be his mentor.
Fast travel to Roundtable Hold again, and you will find her sitting in the same room with Master Smithing Hewg.
Now you unlocked the ability for Roderika to become a Spirit Tuning apprentice, and you can upgrade your summonable spirit ashes as many times as you would like using Runes and Glovewort.
Also, if you return to where you found the Chrysalids’ Memento after completing the questline, you can obtain the Crimson Hood that she wore when you first met her.
