What Happens In The Elden Ring If You Kill Kalé?

What Happens In The Elden Ring If You Kill Kalé?

From Software’s games that are like Souls are known for letting you kill almost every NPC you meet. Elden Ring is no unique. Characters like Ranni, Melina, as well as Ij can’t be killed for different reasons.

However, you could indeed kill the merchant Kalé, who is probably one of the first and nicest people you’ll meet in the game. But you should?

Who Is It?

Merchant Kalé is an NPC in Elden Ring who works as a merchant. You can find Merchant Kalé in the Limgrave Church of Elleh. When you first start the game and leave the Stranded Graveyard, you will see a tower to the north. This is the Church of Elleh.

What Do You Get If You Murder Kalé?

Kalé is one of many wandering merchants in The Lands Between who sell valuable items, tips, and other gear for a small price. He is waiting in the Church of Elleh to help and sell his goods.

Kalé won’t attack you unless you make him angry, but you’re able to still kill him if you want to. You’ll have to hit him some few times to make him angry, and he’ll fight you until you hurt him enough for him to attack you.

Once Kalé starts fighting, you might discover yourself in over your head, since he is the weakest of the travelling merchants but is by no means an easy target.

During battle, he may try to get on his donkey. If you’re a real monster, you can also kill the donkey, which is also easy to do. When Kalé dies, the following things will fall from him.

  • 500 Runes
  • Kalé’s Bell Bearing
  • The Finger Snap gesture

Should You Kill Kalé?

To put it briefly, no, you shouldn’t kill Kalé. If you do this, the only thing you get right away is Kalé’s bell. However, unlike some other merchants in the world, Kalé is very simple to get to.

You could indeed give his bell bearing to the Twin Maiden Husks at the Roundtable Hold, but you have to go a bit further than if you just warped to the Church of Elleh.

You are able to obtain the finger-snap gesture without killing Kalé, and the small number of runes he gives you is another reason why we don’t recommend it. Just leave the merchant alone and go see him when you need to buy something.

Where To Find Merchant Kale

Found inside the Church of Elleh building in Limgrave. This is north of the first Site of Grace the player meets after leaving the Fringefolk Hero’s Grave underground dwelling.
