Elden Ring: How To Obtain The Elusive Shard Of Alexander? - Comprehensive Walkthrough For Alexander's Questline

Posted: Dec 19, 2023

In this guide, I'm going to show you every single step you need in order to get the Shard of Alexander from Alexander's questline with an Elden Ring.

Elden Ring: How To Obtain The Elusive Shard Of Alexander? - Comprehensive Walkthrough For Alexander's Questline

Initiating Alexander's Questline

You're going to start this questline by initiating Alexander's questline out in Limgrave, right at the Saintsbridge Site of Grace.

You're going to hear someone calling for you, and you're going to find Alexander sunk into the ground. All you need to do is talk to him and exhaust all of his dialogue.

And by the way, at every single step you take in this questline, you need to exhaust every single bit of dialogue, or there's a potential that the NPC, whoever it may be, will not move on to their next part.

After you talk to Alexander, you need to hit him in the back a few times, and then he will pop out, giving you 1 Exalted Flesh and then having the ability to move on to his next location.

Radahn Fight & Conversation

The next place you're going to find Alexander is in Redmane Castle.

You can talk to him in the courtyard there before you need to fight Radahn. You can summon him for the Radahn Fight.

And after you dispose of Radahn, you can then find Alexander on the side of the hill, and you can talk to him and exhaust all of his dialogue so that he will then move on to his next location.

(Optional) Gael Tunnel Explanation

Now, there is an opportunity before this point in the game, where you can find Alexander in the Gale Tunnel on the border of Limgrave and Caelid.

However, that is not a necessary part of the quest. And if you do happen to run into him there, you will have a little extra dialogue. But like I said, it is not 100% necessary for him to move on to Redmane Castle.

Seethwater Terminus Location

After exhausting all of Alexander's dialogue after defeating Radahn, you're then going to locate him again in Seethewater Terminus after you defeat the giant dragon worm.

Alexander will be standing in the lava, and you can exhaust all of his dialogue. He will then give you the Jar Helmet.

And after leaving the area, he will then move on to his next location.

(Optional) Liurnia Of The Lakes Location

Before this location in the game, though, there is another area you can find him, which is in Liurnia of the Lakes right by Jarburg.

But if you didn't locate him here and only found him in Seethwater Terminus, that is okay. Because the Liurnia of the Lakes location, once again, is not 100% necessary for Alexander's questline.

If you do end up going to Liurnia of the Lakes and finding him there, you are going to need to get some Oil Pots, which can be bought from this merchant here in the Siofra River.

And you can come back, throw them on him, and then heavy attack, and he will get knocked out of that hole.

You'll then continue up to Seethwater Terminus and do the exact step before he moves on to his next location.

Fire Giant Fight

For Alexander's next appearance, you're going to head all the way up to the Mountaintops of the Giants, and you will have the ability to summon him on the ground while you fight the Fire Giant.

Some people have said that this is an optional step, but I had always summoned him here. And in every single playthrough, it's always allowed him to move to the next location. So, I thought better safe than sorry.

But he is absolutely phenomenal as you fight the Fire Giant. He takes a lot of damage and will tank that giant for you, allowing you to get off all of your attacks pretty much with ease. Of course, if you have enough Elden Ring Runes, you can also buy some sophisticated weapons and armor to equip yourself.

But after you defeat the Fire Giant, Alexander will then move on to his next location after he dissipates into the air.

How To Get The Crumbling Farum Azula?

In order to even get to the next location, you need to go ahead and light the Forge of the Giants. That is going to allow you to traverse all the way to Crumbling Farum Azula.

Final Conversation With Alexander

You’re going to make your way through that area to the Dragon Temple Lift and then walk along the way until you reach Alexander, where you will have your final confrontation with the beloved NPC.

Once you find him, you need to speak through all of his dialogue, and he’s going to challenge you to a final conversation with the fight. Then, you must go ahead and kill Alexander.

After you kill Alexander, you will be rewarded with the Shard of Alexander Talisman and Alexander’s Innards, which you can then take to Jar Bairn in the Jar-Bairn questline.
