How to Get Shard of Alexander in Elden Ring

Alexander the Iron Fist is one of many NPCs you’ll meet on your journey in Elden Ring.

He is a big Living Jar who left his home in pursuit of growing into a mighty warrior.

Like every other NPC, Alexander has his own questline, and one of the rewards for completing it is the Shard of Alexander.

The Shard of Alexander can be obtained after defeating Alexander the Iron First at the Crumbling Farum Azula.

In order to get to that point, you’ll have to progress through Alexander’s questline.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to progress through the questline and get the Shard of Alexander:

  1. The first encounter of Alexander will be south of the Saintsbridge Site of Grace in Limgrave. You’ll find him stuck in a pit.
  2. Once you get him out of it, this will initiate his questline.
  3. The second encounter will take place at the Gael Tunnel dungeon.
  4. After that, Alexander will move to Caelid and make his way to the Redmane Castle.
  5. Once you make it to the castle, make sure to talk to him in the courtyard and then initiate the Radahn Festival.
  6. The next thing you need to do is defeat Starscourge Radahn.
  7. After doing so, speak to Alexander again near the Site of Grace.
  8. Alexander can be found next in Liurnia of the Lakes stuck in a pit once again.
  9. In order to help him, you’ll need to craft Oil Pot before you hit him.
  10. Successfully getting him out of the pit will cause Alexander to move to Mt. Gelmir.
  11. Make your way to Mt. Gelmir and exactly near the Seethewater Terminus to find Alexander standing in the lava.
  12. Interact with him and exhaust his dialogue to find him in his final location.
  13. The last location where you can find Alexander is at the Crumbling Farum Azula.
  14. Once you will locate him, he will ask you for a duel, and defeating him is required to finish his questline.
  15. After you defeat Alexander, exhaust his dialogue. He will reward you with two items, one of them being the Shard of Alexander.
