    Talking To Him In The Castle Is Not Mandatory

    You can still obtain Rogier’s Rapier +8 by talking to him at Roundtable Hold after defeating Godrick. Therefore, there is no need to talk to him in Stormveil Castle. The reason for talking to Rogier at Stormveil Castle is to get the Ashes Of War before defeating Godrick.

  7. Complete Stormveil Castle
  8. After defeating Godrick the Grafted, Rogier will appear at the Roundtable Hold. Proceed to the castle to continue with Sorcerer Rogier’s questline.

Questline End Flag
※If you go to Farum Azula from the Forge of the Giants, without talking to Rogier at least once or clearing the Stormveil Castle, Rogier will suddenly appear at the Roundtable Hold in a coma. Because of this, you will not see D’s letter or changes in Ranni’s event. So make sure to talk to Rogier or clear Stormveil Castle before arriving at Farum Azula.

Changes Based On Actions Taken Prior To Serving Ranni

All of Rogier’s quests end with his death. The outcome will change if you have progressed D’s questline or if you have obtained the Black Knifeprint before you have served Ranni in her questline.
