Hornsent Grandam quest steps in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree DLC

Hornsent Grandam is an NPC you’ll meet while exploring Belurat in Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree DLC. You’ll need to pick up the Storeroom Key and unlock the Storeroom door before you can meet her. After your first conversation, you can check in with her a couple more times after defeating the Divine Beast Dancing Lion and Messmer the Impaler.

Our Elden Ring DLC guide will walk you through where to find Hornsent Grandam, and all the steps you’ll need to take to complete her questline.

Hornsent Grandam location

You’ll find Hornsent Grandam as you explore Belura. You’ll to meet her after you find the Storeroom Key.

Use the Storeroom Key to unlock a door to the south of the Small Private Altar Site of Grace. Inside, you’ll meet Hornsent Grandam. There’s nothing to do with her yet, but she’s creatively insulting.

Return after defeating the Divine Beast Dancing Lion

After you defeat the Divine Beast Dancing Lion, you’ll get the (ridiculous) Divine Beast Head helmet. Head back to Hornsent Grandam and put on the helmet before you talk to her again. Importantly, you have to do this before defeating Messmer the Impaler at Shadow Keep.

This time, she’ll have a lot of new dialogue for you and you’ll get the Watchful Spirit spell. Head back to the site of grace and then return again. This time, she’ll give you some Scorpion Stew.

After Castle Ensis, you’ll meet Hornsent in his second location at the Highroad Cross Site of Grace. You can give him the Scorpion Stew for a little more dialogue (but it doesn’t seem to have any real effect).

You might also notice that Hornsent Grandam asks you to take her son into battle with you — presumably Hornsent — but doing so doesn’t seem to affect her questline.

Return (again) defeating Messmer the Impaler

Once you’ve defeated Messmer the Impaler at Shadow Keep, return to Hornsent Grandam again (with or without the helmet on). This time, you’ll get the Gourmet Scorpion Stew, which works as a healing item and restores your health over time.

After that, she’ll doze off and you won’t get anything else out of her until after you’ve defeated the DLC’s final boss.
