Should You Kill Varre in Elden Ring?

Should You Kill Varre in Elden Ring?

Elden Ring has a lot of sidequests and NPCs that the player may take on to discover more about the lore of the game and acquire powerful equipment.

The strange White Faced Varre (also known as White Masked Varre) who is waiting near the first site of Grace is the very first NPC you’ll encounter. By engaging in conversation with him, he will insult you and declare that you are maidenless.

Although it may be tempting to take Varre’s life right away, doing so prevents you from finishing his questline, which is very worthwhile.

After all of that, you’re probably wondering if you’ll acquire some high-tier gear from killing Varre.

You’ll regrettably be disappointed to learn that the loot is almost useless. It’s not like beating the tutorial boss and earning great gear for your efforts.

What Happens if You Kill Varre?

White Faced Varre drops 500 Runes and 6 Festering Bloody Fingers if you kill him.

Early in the game, White Faced Varre will give you advice when you come across him close to the first site of Grace. This will begin his questline.

If White Faced Varre is killed before finishing his quest, the game will prevent you from accessing his questline. It is important to complete it as it leads to the best rune farming strategy in Elden Ring.

He’s an essential NPC and killing him could ruin your game. Because of that, you should wait and decide whether or not you would like to kill him once you finish his questline.

Can You Revive Varre?

You can not revive Varre Elden Ring.

While you can revive dead merchant NPCs Celestial Dew and atonement at the Chuch of Vows, Varre is an exception. He is permanently dead even at the church of vows, he cannot respawn.
