The Iron Fist Alexander’s Questline in Elden Ring contains a number of sub-quests that can be complex but also can have bugs. One of those is Alexander not moving after Radahn Festival Quest, and this article will discuss how to fix it.
1. About the Alexander not moving after Radahn Festival Quest Bug:
Alexander will join you in Redmane Castle as one of many steps in the Alexander questline. Even if you haven’t interacted with him previously, he will appear at the festival. You will be able to summon him in Radahn’s arena to assist you in the boss battle. And this is where many players and you might run into trouble.
He is supposed to spawn again in Liurnia of the Lakes, south of the Artist’s Shack Site of Grace. He’ll be stuck once more. When you free him with Oil Pot or Roped Oil Pot, he should move to Mt. Gelmir.
However, rather than appearing in his new location near the Seethewater Terminus Site of Grace, he returns to Radahn.
2. How to Fix Alexander Not Moving after Radahn Festival Quest Bug?
You must exhaust all of Alexander’s dialogue options at Radahn’s Site of Grace. One dialogue is insufficient because he will have more to tell you. You should complete the Jar Bairn quest, linked to Alexander.
You should also first kill a Magma Wyrm near the Seethewater Terminus Site of Grace before Alexander appears on Mt. Gelmir. Alexander should appear at a lava lake south of Fort Laiedd only after killing it.
Finally, for the boss of the Fire Giant. Inside the Fire Giant arena, Alexander’s summon sign appears. Enter the boss fog from the northern chain, and the gold summon sign will be near the entrance. If none of these solutions solve the problem, New Game Plus may be your only option for completing this quest.
3. What is New Game Plus in Elden Ring?
New Game Plus, also known as New Game+ (NG+), is a mode available in Elden Ring and other Dark Souls games, some points about it:
- You can start a new game after you finish it once.
- Addition of new features that were not available in the first playthrough along with keeping the progress of the last game, for example, items or experience points.
- It is also known as “replay mode”, “remorting”, and “challenge mode”.
Particularly in Elden Ring, New Game Plus basically allows you to replay the game with the items you already collected in the first playthrough and collect all the items which you may have missed. This has increased enemy difficulty and increased rewards for defeating them (about 550% more).
Bugs can be really frustrating, and especially more frustrating in games like Elden Ring which are so immersive. Make sure you follow this guide and we hope that this helps you in your Elden Ring adventures.
