In addition to dozens of bosses, areas to explore, and NPCs to complete quests for, Elden Ring has six different endings that you can achieve. Four of these endings involve the Tarnished becoming the Elden Lord. One variant of the default Elden Lord ending is the Age of the Duskborn ending.
Without going into too much detail, the Age of the Duskborn will still have you sitting on the Elden Throne before the credits roll, but this time with Death returning to the Lands Between. If you’re looking to unlock this ending, this guide will help. Let’s go through everything you’ll need to do to unlock the Age of the Duskborn ending.
In Elden Ring How To Get The Age Of The Duskborn Ending?
As mentioned above, the Age of the Duskborn ending is one of the alternate endings you can choose when you become Elden Lord. To get this ending, you will need to complete Fia’s questline.
Fia is a Deathbed Companion who you first meet at the Roundtable Hold. Following her questline will eventually lead you to the Deeproot Depths where you will battle Lichdragon Fortissax. At the end of Fia’s questline, you can acquire the Mending Rune of the Death-Prince. Be sure to follow our complete walkthrough for Fia’s questline for detailed information of each step.
After acquiring the Mending Rune of the Death-Prince, continue through the game until you challenge Godfrey, First Elden Lord. After defeating him, you will be able to enter the Erdtree and fight Radagon of the Golden Order and the Elden Beast, who are the final two bosses of the game.
Once the Elden Beast is defeated, you will be able to repair the Elden Ring when interacting with Marika’s fractured body. To get the Age of the Duskborn ending, instead of repairing the Elden Ring, you must use the Mending Rune of the Death-Prince. This will cause you to restore the Elden Ring using the Death-Prince’s Mending Rune, ushering in the Age of the Duskborn, bringing true Death back to the Land Between.
