FromSoftware is known to create multiple endings for their games, and Elden Ring is no exception. Players will face different conclusions depending on their actions in-game. Every ending will drastically change the state of the world and the protagonist in various ways.
Elden Ring has six different endings in which the player will have to decide which character they team up with by completing their quests before defeating the Elden Beast.
However, the game doesn’t give any prior information or hints on how they can achieve different endings in this game. It means players usually have to figure out how to get them without any clues.
Therefore, in this article, I’ll go through the steps you need to make to achieve every possible ending in Elden Ring.
1. How to get the Age of Fracture ending in Elden Ring?
Players need to take down at least two demi-gods, kill Morgott, the Fire Giant to burn the thorns blocking the path, defeat Malekith in Farum Azul, and finish off the Elden Beast in Leyndell to get the Age of Fracture ending in Elden Ring.
Age of Fracture is the standard ending that Melina has been trying to achieve since the start of the journey. After killing the Elden Ring, players need to walk over and touch Marika to get the ending.

Players trigger the Age of Fracture ending by touching Marika after killing the final boss in Elden Ring. Touching her will mend the ring and cause the tarnished to become the Elden Lord with the approval of the Greater Will.

Players will remove the curse of immortality in the Lands Between by using the Mending Rune of the Death Prince on Marika. It means that everyone in the Lands Between will become mortal.

I. What happens when you use the Mending Rune of Perfect Order on Marika?
You will repair the Elden Ring by using the Mending rune of Perfect Order on Marika in Elden Ring. In other words, everything in Erdtree will be as it was before chaos took place in the Lands Between.
However, all the gods you killed throughout your journey will not appear again, and you’ll become the Elden Lord ruling over the Lands Between. It’s a good ending and one of the easier ones to get in Elden Ring.
5. How to get the Blessing of Despair ending in Elden Ring?
Players need to get the Mending Rune of the Fell Curse from the Dung Eater questline and use it on Fractured Marika to get the Blessing of Despair ending in Elden Ring.

If the protagonist uses the Mending Rune of the Fell Curse on Marika in Elden Ring, everyone born in the new age will be afflicted by the Seedbed Curse. On death, their souls will be trapped in eternal torment and won’t return to Erdtree for reincarnation.
The Blessing of Despair is a bad ending in Elden Ring, as Dung Eater’s vision comes to reality. The narrator of the conclusion also shows disgust in his voice while explaining it, a rare happening in Elden Ring.
6. How to get the Lord of the Frenzied Flame ending in Elden Ring?
Players need to get the Seal of Frenzied Flame branded by the Three Fingers in the Subterranean Shunning Ground doors and defeat the final boss to get the Lord of the Frenzied Flame ending in Elden Ring.
