Elden Ring features various NPCs that give you side quests as you play. One of these side quests is the Dung Eater’s quest. In this guide, we’ll tell you how to start and how to complete the quest from Dung Eater.
Dung Eater’s Location
Dung Eater can be found at the Roundtable Hold in Lyndell, Royal Capital. Check the room next to the Twin Maiden Husks and it should be unlocked. Walk into the room and you’ll find Dung Eater’s apparition. However, you need Seedbed Curse to start his side quest.
Give the first Seedbed Curse to Dung Eater to get the Sewer-Gaol Key. Once you have this item, you can unlock the sewer underneath Lyndell, Royal Capital.
Go to the Balcony Site of Grace in the capital. Once you’re there, make your way down the steps, turn left, and jump to the balcony. There you’ll find a well you can jump into. Keep going straight until you reach a staircase but instead of going down, go through the door. Keep pushing ahead until you see an open grate to your left.
Drop down and go left until you reach the ladder. The rats are too slow to follow you but the plants you’ll encounter are poisonous so be careful.
Climb the ladder once you reach it and you’ll find yourself in a room. A giant hand will appear from the ground so you want to head for the cell on the right. Finally, you’ll find Dung Eater in there who asks who you are.
Talk to Dung Eater
Tell Dung Eater to leave his cell by choosing “Leave your gaol!” and make your way back to Roundtable Hold. Proceed to the room where you first encountered Dung Eater. Once you’re there, you’ll find a message in his place that instructs you to meet him at the outer moat.
Outer Moat Location
You can find the outer moat on your map. It’s the small body of water found northwest of the Capital Rampart Site of Grace. Speak with Blackguard Boggart first before proceeding to the outer moat. You’ll find Blackguard Boggart at Boilprawn Shack in Liurnia.
After you purchase prawns from him, he’ll be near the outer moat. Talk to Blackguard Boggart before reloading the area. Then, make your way into the water where Dung Eater will attack you. Killing him will give you the Sword of Milos.
Return to the Roundtable Hold
Go back to the Roundtable Hold and Dung Eater will be there again. Speak to him again and he’ll ask you to defile his flesh with the Seedbed Curse. This will require you to collect Seedbed Curse. and keep taking it to him.
Where to Find Seedbed Curse
|Lyndell, Fortified Manor||On the chair in Dung Eater’s room|
|Volcano Manor||Use a Stonesword Key to open the fog door. The Seedbed Curse is at the bottom.|
|Haligtree, Prayer Room 1||Go to the right of the altar outside the Prayer Room. Proceed to the end of the balcony and jump on the masonry. Jump over to the gazebo with several candles and make your way to the other end of the platform. Then, look around for a body tied to a chair to get the Curse.|
|Haligtree, Prayer Room 2||Go to the right of the altar again but before getting to the crossbowman, jump down to the right and land on a balcony. When you find the doorway with a corpse, jump down to the right. Afterward, head left and jump down the right side of the staircase. And finally, you’ll see another body tied to a chair where the Curse is.|
You can also get one Seedbed Curse from Blackguard Boggart after you kill Dung Eater at the outer moat. By doing this, you can skip getting the Curse from one of the locations above.
Completing Dung Eater’s quest
Feed the Seedbed Curse to Dung Eater until you acquire the Mending Rune of the Fell Curse. However, you can only get this if you feed him five Seedbed Curse. Afterward, you can finish Dung Eater off to get his armor. Finally, use the Fell Curse rune on Marika after the final boss battle to begin the Age of Despair.
