The O Mother emote in Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree can be found near Bony Village, towards the cliff, sitting on a corpse. Simply visit the location on the map above and you should be able to collect this new emote.

You can reach this location fairly early in your Shadow of the Erdtree campaign. In fact, once you gain access to Shadow Keep, you’re ready to go. Head east of Castle Ensis and you should eventually come across the village. There are enemies in the village so just be cautious and don’t attract too much attention while finding the emote. It may be beneficial to stay mounted to Torrent as you seek it out.

Once you have the O Mother emote, it can be used to open a secret path to Hinterland, which can take you all the way to the Finger Ruins of Dheo in the top right corner of the new map.

To get here, first explore Shadow Keep until you’ve discovered the Shadow Keep Back Gate Site of Grace. Once you have that enter the building next to the Site of Grace which has a statue of Marika.
