Finding the Three Fingers location in Elden Ring is one of those things that's really hard to do without knowing exactly where you're going.
The legendary figure is alluded to by multiple NPCs, and even by some of the story trailers, but actually making your way to them is very tricky.
As the Three Fingers are an essential component of Elden Ring's Lord of the Frenzied Flame ending, and one of the most mysterious figures in the game, they are well worth tracking down.
Because figuring out where to go can be tricky, we've got everything you need here to make sure you can find the Three Fingers location, and then enjoy their loving embrace before falling to frenzy.

What are the Three Fingers in Elden Ring?
The Three Fingers are an antithesis to the Two Fingers that many of those in Elden Ring follow. They don't want to embrace the way of life that the Erdtree has dictated, and instead essentially worship chaos.
You can see this in many of the spells and items linked to them, which often inflict the frenzy status effect, which can cause huge damage. They're a menacing legendary figure in Elden Ring, but finding them is essential to grabbing one of the alternate Elden Ring Endings.
Elden Ring Three Fingers location: Where to find the Three Fingers
You can find the Three Fingers underneath the capital city of Leyndell. A few characters allude to this, and you might think they mean deep underground, but they're actually referring to an entrance that can be found near the sewers in the capital.
The first step to finding the Three Fingers in Elden Ring is to find the well in the capital that has a ladder leading down.
It has enemies that crawl on the ground near it, and is surrounded by ash.You can check the pictures here for a map location, because it's an easy one to miss unless you're combing through the area carefully.
The above image is where the entrance is prior to you beating the Fire Giant and doing that section of the quest. If, however, you've already done that, you can still keep this path going, but the entrance moves to the below location instead and is far easier to spot:
You'll now arrive in the Subterranean Shunning-Grounds. This section of the sewers is filled with a mix of rats, slimes, imps, and a few other nasty enemies. You'll need to work your way through the dungeon slowly, often working your way through pipes barely larger than you are, until you eventually find yourself on a lift going even further down into the world.
Grab the Site of Grace here and then walk down the path into the Cathedral of the Forsaken, where you can fight a variant of Mohg, called Mohg, the Omen. This is a tough fight with an aggressive boss that uses bloodflame spells to try and inflict bleed status hits on you.
We recommend using a strong spirit summon here and making sure your vigour is fairly high too. Keep on the move and use powerful attacks, and stay out of the bloodflame pools, and you'll eventually overcome Mohg, the Omen.
What to do after beating Mohg, the Omen
Once you've bested this tough enemy, you'll want to open the chest in the room, then walk closer to the pedestal behind it. Surprise, the pedestal will now lower into the ground, and you're free to start possibly the most infuriating part of this quest so far: a platforming challenge.
Work your way down as low as you can go safely, all while taking out the frenzied enemies down there, and you'll come to a point where you can't easily walk down. You'll now have to use the stone coffins below you to work your way down to the very bottom of this shaft.
There are a few different paths here, and we recommend using items to help reduce fall damage (such as Soft Cotton) if you've got them, as they can occasionally help. Upon reaching the bottom, you'll find yourself falling once more into a new area.
Once you have settled on a starting class and starting Keepsake item, you should first work out how to level up, how to respec and use Ashes of War.Need some direction from there? Try finding map fragments, Golden Seeds, Talismans and some of our best weapon and best armor set choices.If you want to improve your prowess, then we recommend rune farming - especially before taking onMagrit, Godrick the Grafted, Crystalian, Leonine Misbegotten, Starscourge Radahn (required as part of the Ranni quest), Red Wolf of Radagon and Renalla Queen of the Full Moon after you have found the Glintstone Key location.
What to do at the Frenzied Flame Proscription
The good news is that this area doesn't have any horrible bosses in it. Instead, you'll be atop a pile of rubble. Grab the Site of Grace here and then make sure you're absolutely committed to giving yourself over to the flame of frenzy.
First take off all of your clothes and remove your weapons, and then make your way over to the creepy door at the end of the corridor. All you need to do now is open the door and you'll get to watch an unsettling cutscene.
Congratulations, you've now found the Three Fingers in Elden Ring and been branded by them. All you need to do now is keep playing the game.
This locks you into the Lord of the Frenzied Flame ending unless you can beat Malenia though - so do be 100% certain that you want this before you continue, because Malenia is undoubtedly one of the hardest bosses in the game!
