‘They’ll never find me’ in Elden Ring

The voice saying ‘They’ll never find me’ in Elden Ring is encountered while exploring Fort Laeidd, on the western edge of Mt Gelmir. You can explore around as you enter the fort after beating the Prelate fire monk who shoots flames from his head.

It seems incredibly likely that this voice serves to guide you to the useful Talisman since the voice will stop once you get the item.

The ghost will stay there and you can keep talking to it as much as you like, but it will only repeat the same dialogue. With the Fire Scorpion Charm in hand, you’ve now solved the mystery of the voice saying ‘They’ll never find me’ in Elden Ring.

What does the Fire Scorpion charm do?

The Fire Scorpion Charm Talisman raises the damage you deal when using fire attacks, but it lowers your overall damage negation. Generally, this is an overall bad tradeoff, since damage negation can be the difference between being comboed to death. For reference, this Talisman will drop your Physical negation, VS Strike, Vs Slash, and VS Pierce, by roughly 7%.
