Take note that each ending can be unlocked for a different achievement or trophy. For completionists, that means unlocking all endings.

Age of Fracture

  • Select the option that asks you to follow the path of Two Fingers. Once you select this option, the game will end.
  • Select the “Mend the Elden Ring” option once you counter the final boss successfully.

Age of Duskborn

  • Select the option that asks you to follow the path of Two Fingers. Once you select this option, the game will end.
  • Select the “Mend Rune of the Death Prince” option once you encounter the final boss successfully.

Age of Order Ending

  • Fully end the Elden Ring Goldmask quest.
  • Acquire the Mending Rune (Perfect Order).
  • Defeat the final boss
  • Using the Elden Ring, select the option to “Use Mending Rune of Perfect Order.”

Lord of the Frenzied Flame Ending

  • Select the option that asks you to follow the path of Two Fingers. Once you select this option, the game will end.
  • Select the “Become the Lord of Frenzy” option once you counter the final boss successfully.

Age of Stars Ending

  • Fully end the Elden Ring Lunar Princess Ranni’s quest.
  • Defeat the final boss
  • Trigger the blue summon sign “Summon Ranni” between the Site of Grace and the Elden Ring. Once the witch is summoned, she’ll give you the ending.

Blessing of Despair Ending

  • Fully end the Elden Ring Dung Eater quest.
  • Defeat the final boss
  • Using the Elden Ring, select the option to “Use Mending Rune of the Fell Curse.”

Age of Fracture (Melina Ending)

This will be your default ending in Elden Ring and is considered as the Good ending as Melina walks you through the entire ending.

After you’ve defeated the Elden Beast, interact with the Fractured Marika, select the option to Mend the Ring, and see as the Elden Lord sits on the Throne.

This ending will be achievable once you’ve defeated at least 2 demi-gods and then defeated the final boss in Leyndell, Ashen Capital.

Blessing of Despair (Dung Eater ending)

Blessing of Despair is one of the main endings in Elden Ring. You’ll be using the Mending Rune of the Fell Curse on Fractured Marika in this ending. For most, this is considered a bad ending since you’ll curse the entire World.

You must provide Dung Eater with five Seedbeed Curse items for the ending. Once you’ve given him those items, you’ll attain the Mending Rune of the Fell Curse.

The idea is simple, but the execution is difficult since finding these items is not an easy task.

Simply visit the Roundtable Hold to find the red phantom version of Dung Eater past the Twin Maiden Husks. Hand over one Seedbeed to receive a key to the cell located in the Subterranean Shunning-Grounds.

Visit the Subterranean Shunning-Grounds using the well close to the Avenue Balcony Grace. Once you’re at the location, free the real Dung Eater from the cell and head back to the red phantom Dung Eater to defeat him and receive four more Seedbeed to give to the real Dung Eater (found below the capital) for the Mending Rune of the Fell Curse.

Age of Stars Ending (Secret Ending)

This is going to be your Secret Ending in Elden Ring. Due to it having two alternate versions, it’s one of the most complicated endings on the list.

In this ending, you help Ranni to replace Marika as see as you and Ranni reach your peak where the moon replaces the Erdtree.

This ending is activated once you’ve completed Ranni’s quest. For this, you must defeat the final boss and then trigger the blue summon sign “Summon Ranni” between the Site of Grace and the Elden Ring.

Once she’s summoned, she’ll activate the Secret Ending in Elden Ring.

What’s the Best Ending in Elden Ring

Age of Stars, despite being a secret ending, is one of the most appreciated and highly praised “true” Endings in Elden Ring. The reason is simple; you get to explore the best areas of the map and come across the toughest opponents to defeat.

Also, we can’t forget the absolute masterpiece of a storyline between Ranni and Marika in the Secret Ending. Therefore, without any doubt, it is ranked as the Best Ending in the Elden Ring.
