    This is the "bad ending" of the game. Once you make it to Altus Plateau and reach the Royal Capital of Leyndell, there is a well you can find in the city to enter the Subterranean Shunning-Grounds. The NPC red phantom that probably has shown up in your Roundtable area by now will give you a key to open the lower parts of that area. At the end of the Shunning-Grounds, you'll fight Mohg, the Omen King (which also grants you the Mohg, the Omen achievement).

    After the fight, hit the wall behind the chest in the room for a secret jumping puzzle area. Upon finally finishing the puzzle, you'll reach the Cathedral of the Forsaken and see a large ominous door that you can't open, unless you remove all of your armor. This room leads to the Three Fingers, who will brand you with the Frenzied Flame. Now just beat the game and at the end you'll be able to interact with the Elden Ring and become the Lord of Frenzied Flame.

    NOTE: Being branded by the Three Fingers locks you out of selecting the Elden Lord or Age of the Stars ending. To make sure you're able to get all 3 endings on one playthrough through cloud save backup, beat the final boss and do the first two endings, THEN go get branded by the Three Fingers for this ending. There is a Site of Grace in the final boss room, so you're free to come and go before actually committing to an ending.

    If you have already been branded on your playthrough and want to reverse it, you can follow Millicent's questline to receive Miquella's Needle, which you can use in Dragonlord Placidusax's boss arena to reverse the Frenzied Flame. Follow this guide for Millicent's sidequest here: https://eldenring.wiki.fextralife.com/Millicent

    How to get all three endings in one playthrough with the Cloud Save Ending Trick:

    1. Beat final boss and activate Site of Grace in final room. Save and fully quit out of your game so that your cloud save is uploaded.
    2. Load your save file and interact with the Blue Summon Sign for Ranni on the floor for Age of the Stars Ending (Look at the Age of the Stars solution for more info on this and a video).
    3. As soon as the ending achievement pops, press Home-Button > scroll down to Elden Ring > press Options > Manage Game > Saved Data > click Gamertag > Delete Saved Data > Delete from Console > if it still shows the save, delete it again until it’s gone > press Home-Button and resume the game > it will now sync / download your save from cloud.
    4. Load your save file and interact with the statue for Elden Lord Ending.
    5. Repeat step 3 and download your save file again.
    6. Head to Frenzied Flame Proscription, take off all your armor and interact with the door. The Three Fingers will grab you and brand you (Watch the HarryNinetyFour video below for more info).
    7. Head to the Fractured Marika Site of Grace again
    8. Interact with the statue once more for Lord of the Frenzied Flame Ending.

    CuddlyREDRUMWhat triggers the Dung Eater at Roundtable Hold giving you the key to beat Mohg? The Seedbed Curse, according to the wiki.
    https://eldenring.wiki.fextralife.com/Seedbed+Curse
    Apparently there are like four different ones, the one you may have is from the alternate Roundtable Hold in Leyndell, Royal Capital.

    iiAssassinXxiiAfter opening the door, doing the frenzied lord finish, I repeated the quit out steps again. Loaded the game and fast travelled to fractured minds and the statue/blue summon option for Ranni were there. Might be possible to do all 3 in any order if you delete saved data quick enough.

    This Guide is only relevant if you would like to do all 3 Endings in one Playthrough.
    I've wasted a lot of time until i found out how to do it correctly. Sadly some other Guides are not correct about it. So be carefully. I ended up beating the last Boss 3 times.

    How to force your Xbox to make a Cloud Save:
    // As much as I've noticed the Xbox does save to the Cloud only every several hours but there is a way to trigger that.

    1. You have to be online and ingame.
    2. Make a Save by: Exit the Game from the ingame Menu, this will make a local save and you'll get back to the Game main menu
    3. Load your Save by pressing "Continue", you'll end up ingame
    4. Press your Xbox Button - go to Settings: Network - click on "Go Offline"
    5. Open the Game, you'll get a message about Network Error and it will return you to the main menu.
    6. As soon as you are back in the main menu - Quit the Game!
    7. Press your Xbox Button - go to Settings: Network - click on "Go Online"
    8. Open the Game and Continue ->> This will save your Game to the Cloud!



    How to do the different Endings in one Playthrough:

    1. Finish the last Boss and finish the different Storylines as much as possible - check the other guides.
    2. Make a Save by: Exit the Game from the ingame Menu, this will make a local save and you'll get back to the Game main menu
    3. Load your Save by pressing "Continue", you'll end up ingame
    4. Press your Xbox Button - go to Settings: Network - click on "Go Offline"
    5. Open the Game, you'll get a message about Network Error and it will return you to the main menu.
    6. As soon as you are back in the main menu - Quit the Game!
    7. Press your Xbox Button - go to Settings: Network - click on "Go Online"
    8. Open the Game and Continue ->> This will save your Game to the Cloud!
    9. Choose one of the Endings - as soon as you'll get the Achievement go to your Games select Elden Ring and press the Xbox Menu Button.
    10. Select Manage Game and Addons
    11. Now scroll down to "Saved data" and select it
    12.(!!!) Select your Player Profile now be very carefully!!! - You have to select here "Delete from Console"!!! (If you click on Delete Everything, all your Progress will be lost!!!)
    13. Head back into the game and the Xbox should sync your Cloud Save now :) - Select continue and Repeat from Step 9 to do the other Endings.

    TrimblerI did much the same as this solution but on the final play-thru (for this achievement: Lord of the Frenzied Flame) I forgot to switch to Offline mode. After the achievements popped (I also got the one for completing all endings: Elden Ring), I went directly to the manage game data screen and deleted the local saved game. When I restarted the game, it downloaded from the cloud and I was back at the decision point of how to end the game.

    So while I trust this solution more, going offline may not be necessary. I will note I have extremely poor internet connectivity and that may play into a slow update of the cloud save. YMMV

    Mr Hox182Thank you for these steps! This worked for me to get all 3 endings (plus another one that didn't have a cheevo attached).
