When you reach the bottom of Stone Coffin Crypt in Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree and beat the Putrescent Knight, can can continue onward through the cave to find an eerily gorgeous alcove full of purple flowers. In the center of the alcove is none other than St. Trina—a strange who’s character mentioned throughout the base game but never appears.

St. Trina has no dialog, but offers you a choice to Imbibe Nectar. If you’re like me, and you’re curious, you probably chose to drink the Nectar and were surprised by what happened.

Should you Imbibe Nectar in Elden Ring DLC?

Yes, you should Imbibe Nectar in Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree. It kills you, but you need to do it to progress Thiollier and St Trina’s quest.

Keep imbibing the Nectar and dying until St Trina starts talking to you while you’re dead. After you die four times, St Trina speaks, then she has a new dialog line for you after you die another two times. After that, there’s no new dialog, and there’s no point quaffing any more Nectar.

As long as you’ve Imbibed Nectar at least once, you can speak to Thiollier in the Garden Of Deep Purple and progress his quest, as long as you met him in Pillar Path Cross. He doesn’t like what you tell him, but exhaust his dialog, then reload the area. Thiollier invades you and drops his Talisman when defeated—St. Trina’s Smile.

No, there’s no way to survive Imbibe Nectar in Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree.

Once you’ve beaten the final boss of Elden Ring’s DLC, return to St. Trina to loot a new helm item, St Trina’s Blossom, which looks pretty and slightly raises FP. You get this item regardless of whether you speak to St. Trina while dead or do any of Thiollier’s quest. As soon as you beat the final boss, though, you’ll no longer be able to speak to St. Trina, and any associated quests will end.
