What Happens If You Kill Miriel Pope Turtle In Elden Ring?

Read this guide to learn what happens if you kill the Pope Turtle NPC in Elden Ring.

Miriel, Pastor of Vows, also known as Pope Turtle, is an NPC in Elden Ring. A huge creature that looks like a Turtle, you will first come across him at Church of Vows. During your interaction with him here, he will give you all his knowledge on Incantations, Radagon, and Sorceries. Being one of the wisest NPCs in the game, killing him quite obviously seems to be out of the question. However, quite a lot of players are curious to know what would happen if the wise old turtle was to be felled. If you are one of those, we have got just the guide for you. Here, we will show you all that happens if you do happen to fatally attack Miriel.

What Happens When you Kill Pope Turtle Pastor of Vows in Elden Ring?



Killing Miriel, Pastor of Vows (Pope Turtle) in Elden Ring is actually not very easy at all. With a body made of stone, the wise old NPC is virtually indestructible. When attempting to kill him, you will find yourself spending a lot of time, effort, and energy.

If you do manage to fatally kill the old turtle, you will receive Miriel’s Bell Bearing and 12 Turtle Neck Meat. And that’s about all you receive for killing the Turtle Pope.


In our opinion, we believe killing the Turtle Pope is rather futile and unnecessary. For starters, you will spend a lot of time and effort to kill the giant turtle. And even if you do manage to eliminate him, the whole fight is pointless because Miriel never fights back. Being a peaceful creature, he never retaliates even once. Additionally, Miriel is also a great source of wisdom and information. By killing him, you not only pointlessly fight a defenseless creature but also lose a wise ally.

So there you have it. This is all you need to know about what happens when you kill Pope Turtle in Elden Ring. As you can see, doing so is pretty much futile and unnecessary. And now that you know what to do, take a look at our Elden Ring Guides.
