Bloody Finger Hunter Yura is one of several NPCs in Elden Ring who has a side mission for you to accomplish. In this Elden Ring Bloody Finger Hunter Yura Questline guide, we will explain each and everything related to the Hunter of Bloody Fingers Yura quest in Elden Ring including the locations for this NPC, how to begin his questline, optional and mandatory steps and the outcomes of your choices along with all the rewards that you will get. Without any further ado, let’s get into it.
Bloody Finger Hunter Yura Location
You can come across Yura, The Hunter of Bloody Fingers in Elden Ring’s starting region Limgrave (Southern part). Check the images for the exact location. Yura knows a lot about the Dragon Cult. He can be found in the underpass beneath the ruins if you go right from this Site of Grace.
This is not the last time fans will encounter this Yura NPC, as he is the focal point of an alternative quest path. Yura can be engaged and defeated, and it moves along with your progress.
Steps for Bloody Finger Hunter Yura Questline
Like many other side questlines in Elden Ring, Yura’s Quest also has some twists and turns. However, there are some optional steps related to his questline that you can skip but we will recommend that you complete them for some good loot.
Step 1 – Optional Objectives, Kill Dragon Agheel
While we have shared the Yura location above, it’s not mandatory to meet him and talk to him to start the quest. However, if you do go there to have a chat with Yura, he will tell you about the Dragon Agheel nearby and you should stay away from it. Despite his warning, if you want the information about the Church of the Dragon Communion, you should go kill Flying Dragon Agheel and collect the loot. Through Dragon Communion Church, you can get Incantations upon trading dragon hearts in Elden Ring.
Whether you kill the Dragon or not, the steps after that are mandatory to complete Yura questline in Elden Ring.
Step 2- Defeat the Bloody Finger Nerijus
Now head towards Murkwater Cave which is north of Agheel Lake. On your way, Bloody Finger Nerijus will attack you, but Yura will jump in to help you in the fight. If your character isn’t that strong at the start of the game, you can use Yura as a distraction and then go for the kill while Nerijus is busy with Yura. Make sure to have your first hits count as once you attack him, Nerijus will divert its attention towards you.
However, make sure Yura doesn’t die in the battle if you want to receive the Reduvia Dagger which will be dropped by Bloody Finger Nerijus once he is killed.
Step 3 – Talk to Yura Again
Head north immediately after killing Bloody Finger Nerijus to find Yura. Yura is located near the Murkwater Coast Grace, further north of the Murkwater Cave. Talk to Yura to get information on his task related to hunting down the Bloody Fingers.
Step 4 – Unlock South Raya Lucaria Gate
After talking to Yura near the Murkwater Coast Grace, head to the Academy of Raya Lucaria which is in the north of Stormveil Castle and in the center of Liurnia.
Get the Glintstone Key from the west side of the Academy, behind a sleeping dragon at the small landmass. Once you have the Glintstone Key, head to the south gate of the Academy of Raya Lucaria and engage with the seal to get inside.
Step 5 – Eliminate the Bloody Finger Ravenmount Assassin
Interact with the Site of Grace and walk through the seal to the north without interacting with it. Follow the bridge and look for a red summon sign on the ground just before the first major break.
Interact with the Red Summon Sign to trigger the battle with Bloody Finger Ravenmount Assassin and eliminate him. After that, speak with Yura at the bridge next to the summon sign where he will tell you of his hunt for Bloody Finger Eleonora.
When you win this fight, you will receive a Rune Arc and Furlcalling Finger Remedy, Ash of War: Raptor of the Mists when you return to your home world, and Smithing Stone when you talk with Yura.
Step 6 – Eliminate the Bloody Finger Eleonora
After that, go to the Second Church of Marika in the Altus Plateau. You might have to unlock the Grand Lift of Dectus to reach this region.
Talk to Yura at the Church of Marika to get the Nagakiba katana. You will get the Purifying Crystal Tear, one Furlcalling Finger Remedy, and Eleonora’s Poleblade as rewards. You can use this Nagakiba Katana to defeat the Violet Bloody Finger Eleonora who will spawn near the statue.
Step 7 – Talk to Imposter Bloody Finger Hunter Yura
After that, get to the Zamor Ruins Site of Grace in Mountaintop of the Giants where you will meet with the Imposter Yura. He will try to convince you to find the Three Fingers and the Frenzied Flame. He’ll mention Shabriri Grapes, which will tie this quest to the Hyetta quest.
