Rya Elden Ring: position, quest and rewards

Even the most harmless Elden Ring characters often have a rich history, with implications, big or small, for other quests. Such is the case with Riya, if you don’t meet her in the right place, at the right time, at the beginning of the game, you will miss out on a few opportunities. Suffice it to say that it would be a disgrace. Therefore, it is necessary to start the following quests before reaching the Altus Plateau.

Location of Ria the Recruiter in Liurnia

First meeting with Riya under the gazebo, south of Liurnia. After getting a local map fragment, it is easy to find it, since it next to the telescope icon.

In a conversation with her, she will mention her work as a recruiter, but at the moment she is mainly trying to find her necklace stolen by a thug. A funny detail is that Freed Pat is also on a nearby island, at least if you started his quests. He will also offer to help Rya. I like that he behaves correctly, at least before advising you to test the torture machine in the depths of the academy to make you teleport to the world tree.

The thug who boiled the shrimp

To find the precious medallion, head north to Shrimp Boiler Room, which even has its own snooze point. Talk to the bandit and ask him for a medallion. But he will refuse to give it to you, he will ask for 1000 runes. You can either buy it or kill it to take it from the corpse. Better pay.

After buying the medallion, you can talk to the bandit again, after which he will add boiled shrimp to his shop. An interesting detail is that without first talking to Riya, it is impossible to access his merchandise and follow the interactions regarding him.

While you’re there, buy at least one outcast shrimp. This is a powerful defensive consumable, very useful for bosses. Talk to him again to sympathize, he will give you a handy emote so you don’t have your character in the frame when you take a screenshot. Later in the adventure, you can summon him before the Magma Dragon boss, after which he will move under the ramparts of the capital. This is useful for checking out the Coprophage’s special ending if you ever want to discover it. For example, Riya’s quest has important ramifications.

But now back to Riya. Give her back the medallion, she will give you an invitation. at the Vulcan estate. You don’t need it to join places or this faction, but it will be used for the next step.

Ria on the Altus Plateau

To continue, you need to get to the Altus Plateau, the path doesn’t really matter, whether it’s through the river galleries or the Great Dectus Elevator. If you confirmed the previous steps correctly, Riya should be waiting for you at the exit. If it’s not there, return to the nearest retreat point and use the elevator to get to the surface.

She will congratulate you and then offer to teleport you directly to Volcano Manor. Agree to take him by the hand. You will arrive directly at the mansion, which will save you a lot of time.

Riya and Tanith at Volcano Manor

The sequel unfolds the same way no matter how you got to the mansion. Agree to join the faction by talking to Tanith, then enter the living room with the key, then talk to Riya. Also take the letter on the table. To continue Riya’s quests, you will need to complete the quests to kill the mansionwhich also means he’s not going to kill Rijkaard right away.

Please note that Riya’s following quests do not offer exceptional rewards, only a Talisman with negative effects and a Key Object with dubious use. If you want to continue be careful not to complete the kill quests too fastyou have to complete stages with Riya every time between two.

Zorias

After completing the first assassination quest in the mansion, Ria was supposed to disappear from the main living room.. She is now in the second small adjoining living room, on the right in the corridor, but in a different form: a very undaunted snake woman. Talk to him until the dialogue ends. Then talk to Tanith and mention Zoraya. By resetting the area, Raya will regain her human form.

Talk to her again, she will mention the noises in the walls, now is the time to start exploring the mansion. If you haven’t already, uncover an Illusory Wall in the next room, as well as very strong Illusory Walls in other rooms if it’s fun. Your goal is to get to the prison town’s starting point, return to talk to Zoraya, and then. You can then talk to Tanith to continue the dialogue.

Noble Saint and Serpent Amnios

Progress through the mansion’s dungeon until you reach the first boss, Noble Sanctechair, which you’ll have to kill. Then take the Snake Amnios quest item to bring to Riya. She will then disappear from the area.

Potion of Forgetfulness and Final Choice

Talk to Tanith about the absence of Zorias, she will give you oblivion potion get him drunk (it’s a habit in this game with Seluvis). Return to the mansion’s dungeon by going through the temple’s grace point and taking the wooden elevator nearby. You must exit the elevator before reaching the top, there is a door in the shaft, a little before the end. You can also go outside through the lava to get to the secret room.

After talking to Zorayas, she will ask you to kill her to end her suffering. You have three options:

  • just kill hershe will bring down the talisman Woe to Dedikar. Increases damage taken, which is only interesting for replenishing the collection or for playing in hard mode.
  • Spare him and kill the demigod Ricard (don’t forget to finish the other quests in the mansion first). When you return after reloading the area, you will find the Daedicar Doom talisman and a farewell letter. She went on a journey to become stronger and she thanks you. It is by far the best choice for a positive conclusion.
  • You can give him a forgetting potion.then she will fall asleep. After defeating Rijkard, Zorias finds himself in one of the side rooms, still asleep. After recharging the area, the talisman is in its place.

This is where the quest ends. The Potion of Forgetfulness interacts unexpectedly with Korin in the later stages of his quest. We can offer him a drink, but he refuses. It is possible that this potion could be used in a different way, or that it will come out with a patch or even DLC.
