You’ll be forgiven for getting lost while playing Elden Ring. The game’s approach to plot is minimal, meaning you’ll need to pay close attention to figure out where to go next. Unfortunately, sometimes even NPCs get things wrong. This is what happens after you defeat Radahn, when Blaidd says he’ll meet you in Nokron. Problem is, if you go to the Eternal City, he’s nowhere to be found. As it turns out, that’s because he never made it to Nokron at all.
Where to Find Blaidd After Beating Starscourge Radahn
After beating Radahn, Blaidd can be found at the Forlorn Hound Evergaol in Limgrave. When you arrive, you’ll find him imprisoned at the hands of War Counselor Iji. That’s why you can’t find Blaidd at Nokron — Iji trapped him in the evergaol before he ever made it there.
If you’re still searching Nokron, head back to south Limgrave. When you approach the Forlorn Hound Evergaol again, you’ll hear Blaidd’s distinct howling. Interact with the evergaol to be given a choice to free him or not. If you want, you can leave and speak more with Iji about his reasoning. Still, the decision is ultimately yours. Chances are you’re hoping to continue the Ranni questline, so you’ll probably want to free him.
Having once again tasted freedom, Blaidd will express his appreciation for your efforts. From there, he’ll head back to Ranni’s Rise, awaiting the final part of Ranni’s questline. We won’t be giving story spoilers here, but we will say that Blaidd’s Black Wolf Mask isn’t far from Ranni’s tower.
Ultimately, Blaidd never does it make it to Nokron. His capture and imprisonment by Iji means he’s stuck in the Forlorn Hound Evergaol waiting to be set free. Either way, you won’t find him in Nokron. Instead, after the Starscourge has fallen, head to the Forlorn Hound Evergaol in south Limgrave. For the record, it’s the same place he sent you to dispatch Bloodhound Knight Darriwil after snapping to get his attention.
