Elden Ring features tons of bosses – such as Rennala Queen of the Full Moon – hidden throughout the Lands Between. While there are some main bosses that you need to defeat to progress the story, there are tons of optional bosses as well. However, once you have defeated enough main bosses and even bested the Fire Giant, you will think that there is nowhere left to go. But that is not the case.
FromSoftware fans will know that the game does not end abruptly and you need to either talk to some NPC or interact with an object. There is a whole new area that you can explore after the Fire Giant so make sure that you don’t miss it out. That is why we will take a look at where to go after beating the Fire Giant in Elden Ring.
Elden Ring: Where to go After Beating the Fire Giant
Once you best the giant, you will need to head over to the Northwest of the arena. The location will be called Forge of the Giants. However, take extra caution as this area is elevated and you can fall if you’re not careful. After a while, you will come across a Site of Grace. Interacting with it will enable you to talk with Melina – your maiden. At this point, she will ask you if you are “ready to commit a cardinal sin.”
Select the “I’m ready” option and a cutscene will play; unlocking the next area of the game. If you accidentally say no, you can always rest at the Grace Site and choose I’m ready again. If you agree, you will be teleported to an area that you can technically get a preview of if you teleport from The Four Belfries earlier.
Now, you’ll notice that you are in a completely different location than the Lands Between. Be careful as the enemies here are extremely strong. You can also fight an incredibly strong boss here – but we won’t dive into spoilers for that just yet.
That’s everything you need to know about where to go after beating the Fire Giant in Elden Ring. After agreeing with Melina, you will unlock a brand new area that you can explore at your own pace. Make sure that you level up your character and your equipment before going to this area. If you want to get good armor, we suggest getting Blaidd’s weapon and armor. Let us know if you managed to get here or are you stuck at a particular boss in the comments below.
