Endings or Endings Guide for Lords of the Fallen (LotF) are the different conclusions of the game that are determined by the player's actions in Mounrstead. 3 Endings can be unlocked, each having a set of requirements or objectives that must be met to view the ending. Just like any Souls-like game, interactions with the environment, NPCs, and completing Quests will have an impact on the game's finale. Please take note that this page will contain spoilers.

Important Notes for Endings in LotF

IMPORTANT CUTOFF POINTS OR CONDITIONS FOR UNLOCKING THE FOLLOWING ENDINGS:

  • Cleansing any beacon automatically locks the player from achieving the Inferno ending and the Umbral ending.
  • Giving the Rune of Adyr to the non-hostile Remnant at Mother's Lull blocks the Radiance and Inferno endings.
  • The Inferno Ending automatically locks the player in if you reach Bramis Castle without cleansing any of the beacons.
  • Using the Seedpod item on certain NPCs will prevent the player from purchasing items or using their services. Make sure to buy the items you need or complete any necessary negotiations before you use the Seedpod on them.

How to Unlock the Umbral Ending in Lords of the Fallen

Please take note that the following tasks will consist of killing certain NPCs, which automatically locks you out from viewing their shop inventory or using their services. This section will include the required objectives to unlock the Umbral ending of Lords of the Fallen (LotF):

  • IMPORTANT NOTE! DO NOT CLEANSE A BEACON.
  • Defeat Harrower Dervla the Pledged Knight and The Unbroken Promise at the Revelation Depths to find the well that's located at the boss's arena
  • Return to Skyrest Bridge and purchase the Umbral Scouring Clump from Molhu for 50 Umbral Scourings. The item is to be used at the well to travel to Mother's Lull.
  • In Mother's Lull, first, interact with the non-hostile Remnant to acquire Damarose's Seedpod.
  • Use the Seedpod on Damarose to kill her who can be located at Pilgrim's Perch. By doing this, it will grant access to the first floating platform in Mother's Lull.
  • Next, interact with the non-hostile Remnant in Mother's Lull to acquire Gerlinde's Seedpod.
  • At this point, you should have already freed Gerlinde from her prison cell in Pilgrim's Perch, and she'll take refuge in Skyrest Bridge.
  • WARNING, THIS STEP WILL KILL OFF GERLINDE: Use the Seedpod on Gerlinde to grant access to the second floating platform in Mother's Lull.
  • Progress the game until you reach the outskirts of Bramis Castle (just before reaching the gates) where you'll fight The Lightreaper. Defeat the Colossal Sentinel to acquire The Lightreaper's Umbral Parasite. If you defeat The Lightreaper at the first two locations where you encounter him (Defiled Sepulchre or Fitzroy's Gorge), you'll still be able to obtain the parasite item and other rewards.
  • Return to Skyrest Bridge and place the Lightreaper's Parasite in the column that has an open slot in the room where Molhu is.
  • Obtain the Rune of Adyr from the Abbey of the Hallowed Sisters location and dont open the door with adyr rune or you will be locked out of this ending.
  • (This step blocks the player from unlocking the Radiance ending) Return to Mother's Lull and give the rune to the non-hostile Remnant to obtain the Withered Rune of Adyr. This will also give you Melchior's Seedpod, if not previously acquired. This will give access past the gates of Bramis Castle and blocks the Inferno and Radiant endings.
  • If by chance The Iron Wayfarer takes the Rune of Adyr from the Abbey of the Hallowed Sisters, you can still obtain it when you fight him by the gates of Bramis Castle. WARNING, DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR BEHIND THE IRON WAYFARER OR YOU WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO COMPLETE THE UMBRAL ENDING! Make sure you IMMEDIATELY give the Rune of Adyr to the non-hostile Remnant in Mother's Lull.
  • Proceed to Bramis Castle, and in the throne room where you encounter The Sundered Monarch, interact with the effigy of Adyr where you'll also find Melchior's body. Use the Seedpod on the body to gain access to the third floating platform in Mother's Lull.
  • Return to Fief of the Chill Curse in the Umbral Realm to find The Iron Wayfarer (you'll only find him there if you defeat him at the gates of Bramis Castle). Interact with the NPC and use the Withered Rune of Adyr that kills him and grants the player Harkyn's Umbral Parasite.
  • Return to Skyrest Bridge and insert Harkyn's Parasite in the column that has an open slot in the room where Molhu is.
  • Warp into the Umbral realm and speak to Molhu to learn about your next target.
  • Make further preparations before speaking to Pieta in Skyrest Bridge. Speaking to her and choosing to soulflay will reveal her parasite and teleport you into a boss fight against Elianne the Starved.
  • Defeat the boss to acquire Elianne's Umbral Parasite and other rewards.
  • Use Elianne's Parasite in the column that has an open slot in the room where Molhu is.
  • Speak to Molhu and choose "Enter Mother's Lull" to trigger a cutscene where Molhu reveals he has the last seedpod which he uses, causing him to die. This event will grant you access to the fourth and last floating platform in Mother's Lull.
  • And finally, to trigger the Umbral ending, players will simply need to use the platforms to cross the gap and reach the finale.

    • Hmm. The HarryNineteenFour (?) video guide says you have to use the Rune of Adyr on him in Fief's Chill Curse, then you get an item that I believe you bring back to the feminine gash at Mother's Lull.

          Can confirm it still crashes on the second platform on PS5. Crashed twice in a row. Looking at the ground while on the second platform caused it to not crash and it worked normally after that. You can look anywhere once you're past the second platform, it's just that platform and looking at the giant eye that screws the game.

            The only problems I have with achieving the Umbral Ending are that two simple choices will immediately lock you out of two different endings in the game. Cleansing just ONE beacon will immediately lock you out of the Inferno and Umbral Endings, interacting with the effigy of Adyr will lock you out of the Umbral and Radiance Endings. Seriously? Two simple choices any new player could literally stumble upon without any warning will basically lock your game into going in one direction story wise? That’s stupid! Where’s the choice in all of it? On that front I think the game design was overall poor, well that and enemy placement STILL being an issue that the devs claimed to have fixed? I give the cutscenes some slack as I can easily rip them apart with everything that’s wrong with them. But I give them some slack because the dev team was and still is relatively new to this and given that they’ve managed to make a game that for the most part looks this good? I think that is a marvelous achievement that these devs deserve the recognition for. I just hope that for the next game or dlc they make, there’s more original boss fight music, literally all the mini bosses share the same music… I also hope that other boss fights have more dynamic move sets that make them stand out and be more unique. I also would like to see more cinematics with each phase 2 transition. Specifically, I think about that Tancred boss fight, you know the guy with an alter ego or twin attached to the back of his head?

            Regardless, that boss is by far my favorite, in terms of design and creativity I give it a 9 out of 10. The only drawback is that the cutscene showing the creature’s transformation is cut short and instead shown to us in real time… that’s just boring. Let scenes breathe, let them show us every gritty detail it just feels cheaper seeing it after the cutscene. But that’s more of a nitpick.

              i love having my game crash for no reason as soon as i use the second pull for the umbral ending platform thank you hexworks (please hand this game to a competent developer who knows to be practical and not greedy just to compete with lies of p should you consider a sequel)

                Doing umbral ending, melchior body isn't infront of adyr so how can I use the seed pod? I think the drustan quest is key and I may have whiffed it but I'm sure I lit the bonfire but can't see the stigma

                  I got to the last bullet in the Umbral ending on PS5 and my game freezes every time I use the second pull spot... unbelievable...

                    Be sure to use any remembrances you have before putting Elliane's parasite into the column, or you will be locked out of getting the items.

                      Progression through umbral ending is silly. You basically have to be bad from the start to get it. The game, for some reason, doesn't allow you to role play as a dark crusader using heretical umbral knowledge, then stumbling upon Mother's Lull and going full umbral. That would be a great progression, but, alas, I have to go towards the Radiance ending because I've cleansed the beacon.

                        Anyone have a fix for placing the Lightreaper parasite? I have jt, but I can't place it next to Molhu and the remnant tells me to free the flesh from the Rhogar

                          What comes to gerlinde's seedpod, you can progress her quest to the point when you find last tablet and give it to sparky, you will be able to upgrade your weapons at the vestiges. After that you can give gerlide her seed pod, get named a human piece of .... and be done with her :)

                              “ And an important note, do not open the gates of Bramis Catstle with the normal Rune of Adyr in your inventory!”

                              Shoulda put that part before the part they say “progress the game however you like.”

                                Did the infernal ending; game says I've unlocked the Radiant Purifier class. I had already unlocked this class on my previous character. Started a new character to check the classes and the Lord was available. Bravo Devs; Bravo. "Should we fix all the performance and inconsistency issues? Nah, let's just buff the Crimson Specter again."

                                  To be clear, is it needed for the Umbral ending to progress the quest of The Iron Wayfarer ?
                                  The guide says you will only find him in Fief of the Chill Curse if you defeated him before the gate of Bramis Castle.
                                  Does it mean you can find him elsewhere if you didn't go through his quest, and therefore didn't fight him ? Or is this fight needed to be able to obtain the Harkyn's Umbral Parasite ?

                                    Question: If I don't want to cleanse the beacons, do I just leave them alone or do I still have to interact with them?

                                      Just finished up all 3 endings. I did the infernal last. All were great! Thank you for making such a fantastic game. I have really enjoyed it.

                                          Game sucks. I’ve soulflayed all the stigmas on same character after 5 playthroughs and still the Lingering Moments trophy hasn’t popped up. That’s the only one that I needed for Platinum. Developers shouldn’t have released it with all the glitches and bugs.

                                            Inferno ending = ~1 and 1/5 screen of text

                                            Umbral ending = literally 4-5 screens of text….. bruh

Should’ve added parentheses saying (if you give the last rune tablet to Sparky) I just screwed myself because I killed her and now I’m stuck with a +8 weapon. God damn you

                                                Can you give the seedpod to gerlinde in order to kill her AFTER giving the rune tablet to sparky ? In other words, can i reach the umbral ending if i give the rune tablet to Sparky ?

                                                  They need to let the NPCs come back. I don't understand how you can lock people out of essential NPCs. You will find more stuff to upgrade your weapons and get new weapons in the castle. But now you can't upgrade or respec character.

                                                    You need to update the part where you kill Gerlinde. According to your guide it says "You can still upgrade equipment at vestiges." this is wrong. You can only unlock crafting at vestiges if you have given the last rune tablet to Sparky. So now I am stuck without crafting very early in the game.

                                                          If you are doing the umbral ending, do not use the platforms before you are sent there in the very last step. Messing around with them can potentially move the platform to the very end early and completely softlock you out of finishing the game. You will get the Putrid Child class, but you cannot get the achievement, nor go to NG+.

                                                            Quite anticlimactic that a game building its story around the notion that "all gods are c*nt" doesn't allow a "f*ck the gods" ending... Even in the Dark Souls serie, you had at least one (or more) hopeful ending... Here we have the same problem as with the Mass Effect's ending. We have the yellow "Radiance" world destruction ending, the "Inferno" red world destruction ending and the "whatever sh*t is happening here" blue world destruction ending....... Was it SO hard to make a possibility to not purify the beacon AND fight Adyr to just... Ban the gods? All of them? Don't try to tell me it's complicated the endings are text panels!

                                                                                  Endgame - only one location Barim Castle ftw?
                                                                                  Endings:
                                                                                  Radiance - horrible gimmick last boss
                                                                                  Inferno - where real boss? you just can sprint to beacons ignoring guardians and that's it
                                                                                  Umbral - well at least the idea is interesting but devs should do something about Damarose quest
                                                                                  Also Lightreaper - bad concept of him disappearing at last location he should have permanent placement

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      To clarify, the furthest in the game you can progress while still leaving all 3 endings open is to never cleanse any beacons, and progress up to fighting the iron wayfarer next to the Vestige of the Forgotten Guardian, and not open the gates to Bramis Castle after beating him. Opening the gates to Bramis Castle with all beacons corrupted will lock you into the Inferno ending, opening the gates with all beacons cleansed will lock you into the Radiance ending, and opening the gates with the withered rune of adyr and all beacons corrupted will lock you into the Umbral ending.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

From what i see don't cleans any beacon, Play Till the final fight with the lightreaper and make a savegame (i am on PS), it is possible from that Point to get both ending (Inferno and umbral)?

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                                    that way the only thing you lose is her shop.

                                                                                                        Ending are way too complicated, too short and anti-climactic, blind. You'd never guess to do some of this stuff.
                                                                                                        Not enough personality or substance. Plus the way you can lock yourself out by doing or not doing TINY things is just awful design. And playing through the whole game 3 times is excessive to the point of insult.
                                                                                                        The game is... nice, its fine, its alright, but its not good enough to justify playing it 3 times for 3 endings to unlock 3 classes to what? Play it all over again? Like... why? Its like eating 3 huge cakes to get another fourth cake. By then, you're sick to your stomach and nothing would change anyway. I hope they patch this. Geting all classes for any ending would be better; it'd feel like a more meaty reward and encourage 2 playthroughs rather than discouraging 3, making the player quit at 1.
