Seluvis is one of the many NPCs you'll encounter that has a side quest to complete in Elden Ring. For this part of our Elden Ring guide, you'll find details of where to find him, how to begin his questline, and the consequences of any choices you make along the way.

Where to Find Seluvis

Upon accessing the Three Sisters in northwest Liurnia, you'll be granted access to three distinct towers; however, to remove the magic barrier in front of Seluvis's tower, you will need to visit Ranni's Rise and begin the Ranni the Witch Questline.

By doing this, you can speak to Seluvis in his own tower. Seluvis is able to teach your sorcery, but he won't do so until you complete a quest for him (and he'll refuse to talk to you until you tell him it's complete). He asks you to take a potion and deliver it to Nepheli Loux, linking Seluvis's Questline to the Nepheli Loux Questline.

Seluvis First Encounter Complete

You'll need to get Nepheli Loux to return to the Roundtable Hold from her spot near the Village of the Albinaurics. Note that speaking to her at any other location will not allow you to progress Seluvis's questline by giving her the potion.

Nepheli can be found down the stairs near Master Hewg, and will be upset to the point of unresponsiveness. To progress this quest, you must instead go upstairs and speak to Gideon. You then have the option of giving it to him (to dispose of) or instead giving it to Nepheli. If you choose for him to dispose of it, he'll tell you to nevertheless tell Seluvis that you gave Nepheli the potion.

Giving her the potion effectively ends her questline early - before she is able to return to Stormveil Castle; however, it will give you the chance to earn an additional reward in the form of a summonable puppet granted to you by Seluvis.

Return to Seluvis and tell him that you gave Nepheli the potion. Whether or not you chose to give it to her, or if you're simply lying to him, his quest will progress regardless. Exhaust his dialogue here to unlock the ability to buy sorceries from him.

Seluvis's Hidden Chamber

Seluvis's Questline links to a few different quests for other NPCs. Not only does his quest overlap with the Nepheli Loux Questline and the Ranni the Witch Questline but there's also a link to the Sorceress Sellen Questline.

There is a hidden chamber in the ruins by Ranni's Rise that reveals Seluvis's monstrous secret. The ruins themselves can be somewhat difficult to find; the map below pinpoints the exact location. Roll on the ground near the invisible noble sorcerer here to reveal an illusory floor, leading down into a subterannean chamber.

Here, you will find a number of individuals who appear to be frozen, possibly dead. Against the far wall, you'll see a message on the floor noting that these individuals are Selvius's puppets. Just to the left of this wall, is another illusory wall. Hit this one and you'll reveal what seems to be a motionless Sorceress Sellen and a replica of her room in the Waypoint Ruins. Go back and speak to Seluvis again and tell him you've seen the chamber.

Because he thinks you've given the potion to Nepheli, he'll claim you're working together and gives you the option to choose between two special summonable ashes - Finger Maiden Therolina Puppet or Jarwright Puppet. If you actually gave the potion to Nepheli, there will be a third option to choose from - Dolores the Sleeping Arrow Puppet.

Seluvis' Plot

Whichever option you pick, you'll be able to buy the others using Starlight Shards as currency.

Once you've bought another sorcery from him, you will see the dialogue option to ask Seluvis about his plot. He explains that he seeks to make a puppet out of a demigod - and, in the process, betray Ranni. Seeking your help, he'll ask for you to find him Amber Starlight, a powerful item that can be used to make a potion to sway even the gods.

Head to the Altus Plateau, to the northeast of the Altus Highway Junction Site of Grace. Search for the small passage leading under a larger plateau, following it along until you find a hidden shrine with a statue of a woman and child. Here you'll find the Amber Starlight that can be given to Seluvis. Return to him and give him this key item to allow him to make his Amber Draught. At this point, he will reward you with a Magic Scorpion Charm. He'll then ask you to be the one to give the Amber Draught to Ranni.

WARNING: Giving Ranni the Amber Draught will cause her to immediately wake up. She'll denounce you and cast you out of her tower, wanting nothing more to do with you, and ending her questline prematurely. Trying to mitigate this by attacking Seluvis will also cause her to become hostile. If you wish to complete Ranni's questline, which will result in a unique ending to the game, we recommend not giving Ranni the Amber Drought. Seluvis's quest will end the same way regardless.

The Death of Seluvis

Once you have given Ranni the Fingerslayer Blade from Nokron, Eternal City, she will disappear from her tower, opening up a portal to Nokstella, Eternal City in the tower called Renna's Rise. Before she goes, however, she notes that she is aware of Seluvis's plot, and that she intends to do something about it.

If you return to Seluvis once Ranni has departed, you'll find him dead, although choosing to examine him will reveal that he is still available as a vendor of puppets. Note that if you locked yourself out of getting Nepheli's or Dolore's Puppet Spirit Ashes, you are still able to do so from the body of the NPC Pidia, located within Caria Manor.
