There isn’t just one ending to unlock in Elden Ring. By completing an incredibly obscure quest, you can burn it all down and infuse the world with chaos. “The Lord of the Frenzied Flame” is a bizarre ending path that takes you deep underground to nightmarish dungeons — and if you choose to follow this path, you’re completely locked in. No going back after embracing insanity. Everyone is your enemy if you decide to go this way.

How To Get The Flame of Frenzy | Ending Guide
In Leyndell, The Royal Capitol, reach the deep underground of the Subteranean Shunning Grounds. This is a dungeon located in the deep underground sewers / catacombs of Leyndell. There are multiple dungeons deep below.
Defeat the boss and attack the wall behind the altar. Inside, you’ll find a bizarre tomb that is packed with hundreds of merchants, screaming in agony. The only living creatures here cause Frenzy — a unique madness status effect. If Frenzy fills up, you’ll take extreme damage.
Inside the dungeon, fall down the coffins to reach the Frenzied Flame Proscription site of grace. Use the site of grace and talk to the Maiden. She’ll warn you to stop here.
To open the door at the end of the hall, remove all your armor. With all armor removed, an option will appear when you approach the door. Now you can open. If you go inside the door, there is no turning back. From this point on, you are locked into the ending path.
Go inside to gain the Three Finger’s scorchmarks on your body. Without armor, the marks will appear on you. This is the Frenzied Flame. You can now choose to burn yourself at the Forge of the Giants instead of the maiden. Select “Listen to the sounds of flame” at the site of grace on the forge itself.
Now simply follow the normal route to the ending. Become Elden Lord by defeating the boss of Crumbling Farum Azula then return to Leyndell and enter the Erdtree. Defeat the final bosses, and the frenzy ending will plunge the world into chaos.
