In Elden Ring, you’ll find a wide range of characters that will share their plight with you, most of these will have Quests that span multiple locations. This page will detail where you can find Gideon Ofnir and complete his Questline.
First Meeting - Roundtable Hold
You’ll be able to have your first encounter with Gideon Ofnir when you set foot in the Roundtable Hold for the first time. You will find him standing by the hearth and to begin with, he won’t even offer you his name as refuses to accept you as anything more than all the other Tarnished that pass through the Hold.
Leave the Hold however, and return once more to find that Gideon has retreated to his room, located down the path near Brother Corhyn and where Ensha stands guard outside. Head inside the room and he will agree to give you more information, and accept as you a Knight of the Hold if you can track down and kill one of the Elden Lords, namely Godrick the Grafted at Stormveil Castle.
Second Meeting - Roundtable Hold
Once you have successfully defeated Godrick the Grafted, return to the Roundtable Hold only to find that Gideon Ofnir has closed his door to you. In order to progress his storyline, you’ll have to first speak to his daughter, Nepheli Loux, who you will first meet just before you fight Godrick at Stormveil Castle. After speaking with her, head into the room to speak with Gideon (you must first speak with Enia in the new accessible room for Gideon to reopen his doors) and he will impart knowledge of all the Demigods for you. For now, Gideon will serve this role as the All-Knowing.
Third Meeting - Roundtable Hold
Upon defeating your second Lord, return to Gideon and he will offer some insight on where to go next. More importantly, you can ask him about his feelings towards Nepheli Loux, of which he remarks that she has not been of use to him. You can head between the two to keep the dialogue going, but this ends in Nepheli feeling like she’s been cast out.
Around this time, if you’ve been following the Preceptor Seluvis Quest, you may have a potion that he has tasked you with giving to Nepheli. To avoid any negative outcomes to Nepheli (or later, Dung Eater’s) Quest, you can opt to give the potion to Gideon, who will take it off your hands and asks that you lie to Seluvis that you handed it over. This is the best outcome for the Potion as all other outcomes will end that person’s Quest.
Fourth Meeting - Roundtable Hold
Once you’ve ventured through Leyndell, Royal Capital and defeated Morgott, the Omen King, return to the Roundtable Hold and speak with Gideon once more. He’ll disclose the location of other Shardbearers and will begin providing rewards for your progress, these are as such:
|Reaching Mohgwyn Dynasty Mausoleum for the first time||Fevor’s Cookbook |
|Defeating Mohg, Lord of Blood||Law of Causality|
|Reaching Miquella’s Haligtree for the first time||Black Flame’s Protection|
|Defeating Malenia, Blade of Miquella||Lord’s Divine Fortification|
Final Meeting - Leyndell, Ashen Capital
Your final meeting with Gideon takes place in the final moments of the game. Once you’ve finished the events at Crumbling Farum Azula and return to Leyndell, head forward towards the Erdtree Sanctuary and you’ll be greeted by Gideon only this time, there will be no friendly conversation. You’ll be thrust into a battle against Sir Gideon Ofnir, The All-Knowing, a required boss battle. This should be a relatively simple battle at this stage of the game and for victory you’ll obtain the All-Knowing Set and the Scepter of the All-Knowing.
