How to talk to Hornsent Grandam in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree

Elden Ring: How to Unlock Dialogue with Hornsent Grandam in Shadow of the Erdtree

If you unlock the Storeroom in Belurat Tower Settlement, you’ll find Hornsent Grandam, but she won’t be interested in speaking with you. We’ll tell you how to talk to Hornsent Grandam in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree to get an incantation.

Upon exploring Belurat Tower Settlement and unlocking the Storeroom you’ll quickly realize that the NPC inside the room is disinterested in you. There’s only one way to speak to her properly, but you’ll have to defeat a boss first. You can talk to Hornsent Grandam in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree by wearing the Divine Beast Head.

The only way to obtain this head is by defeating the Divine Beast Dancing Lion boss which is at the very end of the Belurat Tower Settlement dungeon. The Storeroom is about halfway through the dungeon, so if you haven’t defeated the boss yet now is a good time.

Once you defeat the Dancing Lion, you’ll receive a Remembrance of the Dancing Lion and a Divine Beast Head. The headpiece is equipment you can wear as a helmet, but there’s a more useful way to use it. Head back to the Storeroom and speak with Hornsent Grandam after equipping the Divine Beast Head.

She’ll now be much more happy to speak to you. After going through a string of dialogue once, you’ll need to speak to her a second time to receive the Watchful Spirit Incantation. This will summon a guardian spirit above the caster’s head, and it requires 26 Faith.

You’ll also realize after reading her dialogue that she asks you to kill Messmer for her. This is a boss you can face much later in Shadow of the Erdtree, one of many bosses you can fight in the Land of Shadow.
