You Defended Them or Not Diallos Choice Elden Ring

Whatever you choose in the Elden Ring “You Defended Them or Not” Diallos choice does not change the result of the rest of the quest at all. No matter whether you tell Diallos he defended the jars or not in Elden Ring, it’ll all play out the same. That’s basically all you need to know about this step, without going into any more spoilers. The only real difference is whether or not you want to show a bit of mercy and solace to Diallos in his horrible situation. Okay, from here on out, we’ll break down what happens in each choice in detail, so this is your last SPOILER WARNING. Still here? Alright, let’s go.

Here’s what happens if you tell Diallos he defended the jars or not in Elden Ring. If you say “You defended them,” Diallos will draw his last breath grateful that he actually served some kind of purpose in the grand scheme of things. He dies believing that he proved his worth. On the other hand, If you choose “I’m afraid not” instead, he will just chuckle sadly and conclude that he has been “a fool to the last,” then expire. So, yeah; it’s all up to you. Do you want to extend a bit of kindness to a dying man or send him to the great beyond a thoroughly broken person? Given the overall mood of the quest, I think a little white lie for a glimmer of hope won’t hurt.
