Elden Ring White Faced Varre Not At Rose Church

White-Faced Varre is the very first of many intriguing Elden Ring NPCs you’ll meet in the Lands Between. You’ll encounter this masked character by The First Step site of grace at the very beginning of the game. There, he will give you some basic instructions and some exposition. Like many other Elden Ring NPCs, White-Faced Varre will not be stationary. Rather, he’ll change his location as the story progress. At one point, White-Faced Varre should be at the Rose Church, but players are having trouble finding him. If White-Faced Varre is not at the Rose Church, here’s what you should do.

Elden Ring White Faced Varre Missing At Rose Church Solutions

In later parts of the game, White-Faced Varre can be found standing outside the entrance of the Rose Church. The ruins of the Rose Church are an island-like location amidst a swampy area in the Liurnia of the Lakes region. These Liurnia marshes are easily traversable by foot or on a horse, by you probably already know this, as you’ve come here expecting to meet White-Faced Varre, but he is not there.

As with many missing things in Elden Ring, there’s no consensus on how to fix it. If White-Faced Varre is not appearing at the Rose Church, there are a few possible solutions. First thing first, you’ll need to defeat Godrick the Grafted and visit the Roundtable Hold at least once. That’s a must, but some players report that this didn’t make Elden Ring White-Faced Varre appear at the Rose Church. Some players report that the issue was fixed by talking with Enia, the Finger Reader at Roundtable Hold. She can be found inside the room with the Two Fingers. Talk with her after defeating Godrick, and see if that helps

If White-Faced Varre is still not at the Rose Church, then try beating Radahn and then talking with Enia. And if even this doesn’t solve the issue, try going back to the First Step site of grace and see if he is maybe still there. If he’s there talk to him and see if that will trigger him appearing at the Rose Church. Finally, try restarting the game or visiting the church at different times to see if that will make him appear.

Very early in your exploration of Elden Ring world you will find out that you need to prepare your character for different tasks. You'll need to learn how to use Ashes of War, how to two-hand weapons, or use magic spells during the course of your adventures. Many secrets are also waiting for you, such as, a hostile NPC Sellen that doesn't let you see her shop, an invisible man in a bush, or a huge turtle with a bell that lets you duplicate some very important items.
