Elden Ring: You are not destined to open this chest

Elden-Ring-you-are-not-destined-to-open-this-chest

If you just found a mysterious chest in Nokron, the Eternal City but Elden Ring says you are not destined to open it, you’ve come to the right place. In this quick guide, we’ll show you what need to do to open the chest.

What to do if Elden Ring says “You are not destined to open this”

If Elden Ring says you are not destined to open the chest from Nokron, this means you found it earlier than you were supposed to. To open the chest, you need to progress into Ranni’s questline. You can open the chest only after she asks you to retrieve the hidden treasure of Nokron. She’ll give you a key for that chest.

Inside the chest, you’ll find the Fingerslayer Blade. You need to give this item to Ranni to further progress the quest.

To find Ranni, you need to clear the Caria Manor, and defeat Royal Knight Loretta. You’ll find Ranni at her tower behind the manor.

Sometimes, you may need to fight a flying lizard before you can enter Ranni’s tower. If you’re lucky, the lizard won’t be there when you reach the area. Talk to Ranni, exhaust all the dialog lines, and complete all the tasks assigned to you.

Elden Ring doesn’t have a linear story. The game relies on an open-world system that gives players plenty of freedom when it comes to exploring The Lands Between. That’s why sometimes you may find the chest before progressing far enough into Ranni’s questline.

Conclusion

If Elden Ring says “You are not destined to open this” when you try to unlock the chest from Nokron, you need to talk to Ranni. You can only open the chest after she asks you to retrieve the hidden treasure of Nokron. She’ll give you a special key that you can use to open the chest.

And now you know.
