This guide will walk you through the Beast Clergyman questline in Elden Ring. He is a necessary encounter in order to go deeper into the main plot. The instruction that follows will explain where to locate the Gurranq Beast Clergyman, how to finish his mission, and what prizes he provides at the end.
What is the location of Gurranq Beast Clergyman?
Gurranq lives in Caelid’s Bestial Sanctum. There are two approaches to him. You may get straight to the Bestial Sanctum by walking via Caelid or utilizing a teleporter.
If you opt to get there by torrent, you will have to pass through the harsh Caelid terrain as well as confront the Black Blade Kindred boss before entering the Sanctum.
To use the teleporter, first talk with D, Hunter of the Dead, at Summonwater Village. After you slay the Tibia Mariner for him, he’ll send you to the teleporter, which will transport you straight to the Sanctum, skipping the Black Blade Kindred. The teleporter is concealed in the woods behind Marika’s Third Church.
