This is Why Sellen Transforms in Elden Ring

This is Why Sellen Transforms in Elden Ring

Elden Ring is full of questlines and NPCs to find. There are probably questlines that haven’t even been discovered yet. One really odd questline in the game is Sorceress Sellen’s questline. Most people don’t even know there is a questline with her but it is definitely one of the most interesting ones in the game. One question you might be asking is, why does Sellen transform at the end of her questline?

If you do the questline a certain way, she will transform into a giant Glinstone ball with a bunch of stone heads inside of the Grand Library in the Academy of Ray Lucaria. A lot of people think that all these types of heads you find around the world are because of the Magic they use. It is like a curse so that at the end of their life, they turn into a Magic ball.

You see these types of balls around the game world and when you see them, you get pretty confused by what they are exactly. They are basically Sorcerers that have been cursed. It is unclear exactly why Sellen transformed, but we will go over what people think in the rest of the article. We are going by information that we have found, so it is possible that the information is wrong, but as of right now, it is up to what we have found.

Who is Sellen and why does she transform?

Sellen is a sorceress you can talk to at the Waypoint Ruins in Limgrave. You need to go there and fight the boss guarding her room. Once you defeat it, you can go in and talk to her Spectral body. She is a Magic-user that sells Sorceries to you, and you can also give her books to increase her stock. Once you talk to her, you start her questline.

Her questline is decently long, so if you are confused about what to do, you can look up how to complete it. It is a relatively confusing quest because you will need to go to all sections of the map to find the different objects and talk to different people. Not a lot of people know who she is exactly, but she says she was a former student at the Academy of Ray Lucaria.

She was kicked out for using Magic that was forbidden and that is why she is locked away. Towards the end of her questline, she eventually turns into a giant ball of stone faces. As we said before, you see these pretty often roaming around, but they are basically cursed students from the Academy. She used forbidden Magic so people think that she was cursed because of that.

She also defeated a lot of other Sorcerers so other people think that it was a curse from killing soo many previous students. It is by far one of the most intriguing questlines and it is definitely one you should really check out. Try not to kill any NPCs right away because you will ruin a bunch of interesting questlines for yourself.
