Elden Ring’s Deathroot is a key item that Gurranq Beast Clergyman is on the lookout for and devours. These Deathroot are limited and can only be found in specific areas in the Lands Between.

A source that gives rise to Those Who Live in Death.
The beast clergyman, found at Bestial Sanctum in the distant east, collects and devours these roots.
On the night of the dire plot, the stolen Rune of Death enabled the first Death of a demigod. Later, the Rune of Death spread across the Lands Between through the underground roots of the Greattree, sprouting in the form of Deathroot. – in-game description

To feed Gurranq, Beast Clergyman, you must locate these Deathroots. Collect as many Deathroots as possible (9) and Gurranq will give you various weapons, equipment, and incentives.

All Deathroot Locations

Finding all of the Deathroot spots is challenging, as they are almost always safeguarded by tough opponents and concealed in unusual places. With that in mind, below are all of the Elden Ring Deathroot locations, as well as how to find and use them.

Elden Ring has a total of 9 Deathroots, the majority of which are difficult to obtain even when you know where they are. Deathroots are commonly found after undead boss encounters or in skeleton-filled catacombs. Many of them are also possessed by the recurring Tibia Mariner bosses scattered throughout the game.

Gurranq – How To Beat

  • You will meet Gurranq for the 4th Deathroot in unusual combat in which you do not have to kill him per se. The goal here is to inflict a significant amount of damage on his HP in order to end the battle.

  • When you return to this area later in the game, you’ll see that Gurranq has become sober and is looking for additional Deathroots. Give it to him so he can go into trance and battle you once more. Just kidding!
