The world of Elden Ring is incredibly vast, far beyond what you can imagine. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, a new dungeon appears out of nowhere. This is what makes Elden Ring exciting and worth playing over and over, as there are always new things to uncover, like meaning behind the Beast Eye Quivers pop up.
I’m sure most of you have encountered the “Beast Eye Quivers” alert at some point in Elden Ring. I first came across it while exploring Summonwater Village in Limgrave. Initially, I thought it was a warning of a nearby monster, and in fact, it was true, as Summonwater Village is home to the undead Tibia Mariner boss. So, what exactly does “Beast Eye Quivers” mean in the world of Elden Ring? Let’s find out.
Elden Ring: Beast Eye Quivers Explained
While you’re out exploring in Elden Ring, you might come across a special item called “deathroot.” When you give this item to Gurranq, the Beast Clergyman, you’ll receive a Clawmark Seal and a Beast Eye. The Beast Eye will alert you when there’s a deathroot nearby. You’ll see a message saying “Beast Eye Quivers” when you enter certain catacombs and areas. When you see this message, it means there’s a deathroot nearby, either in that area or the catacombs.
When the “Beast Eye Quivers” message pops up in the open world, it means there’s a Tibia Mariner boss nearby. Defeat this boss to get a deathroot. Once you’ve beaten the Tibia Mariner boss and collected the deathroot, the “Beast Eye Quivers” message will disappear.
If you see this message while inside a catacombs, it means there’s a chest with a deathroot at the end. Usually, this chest is guarded by a boss, so you’ll need to defeat the boss to collect the deathroot. For those looking to speedrun, you can skip the boss and simply grab the deathroot from the chest, then leave the area by quitting or using Mimic Grace.
Here are all the locations with Tibia Mariners with deathroot as a drop loot:
- Summonwater village in Limgrave
- In a lake located south from Artist’s shack grace in East Liurnia of the Lakes
- Wyndham Ruins located north of Erdtree-Gazing Hill in Altus Plateau
- On a hill between Castle Sol Main Gate and Snow Valley Ruins Overlook in Mountaintops of the Giants.
The following catacombs have a loot chest with deathroot:
- Deathtouched Catacombs in Limgrave
- Black Knife Catacombs in Liurnia of the Lakes
- Gelmir Hero’s Grave in Altus Plateau
- Giants’ Mountaintop Catacombs in Mountaintops of the Giants
- Hidden Path to the Haligtree in Mountaintops of the Giants
In Elden Ring, you can gather a total of nine deathroots. Now, you might be curious about what to do with these deathroot items. Well, players can hand them over to Gurranq, the Beast Clergyman, found at the Bestial Sanctum in Dragonbarrow, in exchange for the following rewards:
- Clawmark Seal
- Bestial Sling
- Bestial Vitality
- Beast’s Roar
- Beast Claw
- Stone of Gurranq
- Beastclaw Greathammer
- Gurranq’s Beast Claw
- Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone
If you want to give the Bestial incantations a try in Elden Ring, you will need to collect deathroots. To unlock all of the Bestial incantations and receive a Clawmark Seal, you’ll have to gather all the deathroots and give them to Gurranq.
The Clawmark Seal boosts the power of Bestial incantations by 10% and works better if you have higher Strength as it scales with Strength. If you have a Strength build, definitely give Zweihander a try in Elden Ring.
