Elden Ring: Should You Tell Hyetta About Human Eyes?

Grapes of Wrath, meet Grapes of Madness.

Elden Ring Hyetta Shabiri Grapes

Elden Ring’s NPC’s endure a gauntlet of calamitous or disturbing life events, and Lightseeker Hyetta is no exception in this case.  A blind maiden on the quest to find the “distant light” whose senses are triggered upon eating mysterious Shabiri Grapes, this character is directly linked to the “Lord of the Frenzied Flame” ending of the game.  But as a player, you’ll find yourself confronted with an ethical dilemma while interacting with her: should you tell her the truth about what she’s been doing in order to follow her destiny?  Read on for our guide on Whether You Should Tell Hyetta About the Human Eyes in Elden Ring!

Elden Ring: Should You Tell Hyetta About Human Eyes?


The answer is yes, you should tell her that the “Shabiri Grapes” she, a blind woman, has been getting fed by strangers, are actually oozing eyeballs plucked from madmen, as telling her the truth also progresses her questline.  The question appears after you find her third location at Gate Town Bridge.  While this appears to be a ritual on the path to becoming a finger maiden, it seems like an ethical given, to tell the truth about the mystery meat you’re feeding to somebody under the guise of grapes.  Once you’ve chosen to tell her, fast travel to the same location and speak to her again, enabling the dialogue to progress and for her to leave for the fourth location.

Hyetta’s questline ties into the Madness status effect related to the Frenzied Flame and the Three Fingers, one of the powerful deities of the realm.  Telling her the truth of the Shabiri Grapes doesn’t upset her as much as you might think, and brings you one step closer to one of the bleaker endings of the game, a global purge by fire.
