Cemetery of Ash

High Wall of Lothric

Undead Settlement

  • After the Bat Wing Demons have dropped you off, walk to the left and grab a Large Soul of a Deserted Corpse
  • Go downstairs. Walk behind an overturned carriage and kill two Dogs to get Alluring Skull x2
  • Find Yoel of Londor below the Foot of the High Wall bonfire amongst several other Pilgrims. Talk to him and agree to his request and he moves to Firelink Shrine. Head back to Firelink Shrine and talk to Yoel to receive the Beckon gesture. Accept Yoel's offer to Draw Out True Strength which gains you a free level and a Dark Sigil. From now on, for each time you die, you gain 1 Hollowing per Dark Sigil. Yoel offers 4 more free levels at 2, 6, 12, and 15 Hollowing, so getting all 5 Dark Sigils should not take long. If you do not get all 5 Dark Sigils before reaching the Catacombs of Carthus, Yoel dies which voids the Usurpation of Fire Ending
  • After you get all 5 Dark Sigils and refresh the world, Yoel dies with Yuria of Londor watching over his newfound corpse. Talk to her to receive the Dignified Bow gesture and buy the Londor Braille Divine Tome
  • Near Yoel, you will find Homeward Bone x2 on the far left edge of the bridge
  • From the Undead Settlement bonfire, enter the house. Cut down a glowing hanging corpse to get the Small Leather Shield

  • Grab an Estus Shard by the burning tree with worshipping undead
  • On the other side of the tree, grab an Ember. Shoot down a hanging corpse from the tree to get Kukri x9. Walk to the closed gate to grab a Soul of an Unknown Traveler

Cut down the bodies hanging over the staircase to get a Large Soul of a Deserted Corpse. Drop down from a hole in the room. In this hidden room, discover the Warrior of Sunlight covenant and consume Estus Soup
  • Open the door and walk to the end of the hallway. You should now be on the main street of the neighborhood. Head right and break through the wooden crates between the first gap on your right. Grab a Soul of an Unknown Traveler
  • Walk back the main street and proceed. A wooden door should automatically break. Walk into that house to get the Whip
  • Proceed back onto the main street. Walk until you see a wooden wheel to your right. Walk around the corner to get a Titanite Shard

  • Mad dark spirit Holy Knight Hodrick will invade if you are embered. Kill him for his Vertebra Shackle
  • Get back to the burning tree near the beginning of Undead Settlement, walk across the bridge, and walk around the right which should be blocked by wooden crates and barrels. Walk towards the houses with the Thralls. Find a Fading Soul here. Walk around one of the houses to get the Plank Shield. Walk onto the rooftop of the house to your left and grab Firebomb x6
  • Climb onto the rooftop of the other house and grab Homeward Bone x2. Jump down to where a non-hostile Cage Carrier is walking around. Cut down the hanging corpse at the end and grab the Flame Stoneplate Ring. (If the corpse falls down and you are unable get the item, just proceed to the next step)
  • Examine the Cage Carrier from behind. After you get out of your cage, walk towards the light. Grab the Wargod Wooden Shield. Talk to Holy Knight Hodrick to receive the Mound-makers covenant and a Homeward Bone. (If you have reached the Curse-rotted Greatwood before reaching the Cage Carrier, Hodrick dies and the Cage Carrier becomes hostile. Thus, you cannot acquire the covenant until later through Sirris' sidequest.) Quit and reload to reappear near the Cage Carrier. Retrieve the ring if you missed it before
  • Head back, dropping down a small ledge on the left. Enter the house near the bridge and pick up a Large Soul of a Deserted Corpse. Then open the backdoor
  • From your right, get the Caduceus Round Shield
  • Walk across the bridge towards the house in view and jump down to the ledge on your right. When you are on the ledge, walk towards the bridge to get a Titanite Shard
  • The other way leads you to the Cliff Underside bonfire under the house and to a way up

  • Walk towards the tower. Talk to Eygon of Carim outside and Irina of Carim in her cell. If you have enough health, you can drop into the valley to reach Irina. Otherwise, you can reach Irina by purchasing the Grave Key from the Shrine Maiden after giving the maiden the Mortician's Ashes
  • Walk into the tower to find Siegward of Catarina. Get on the elevator which goes down to the basement. Kill the Boreal Outrider Knight to get the Irithyll Straight Sword, grab the Ember and rest at the Road of Sacrifices bonfire
  • The Life Ring+1 is behind Siegward on the upcoming balcony
  • To reach the top of the tower, hit the switch on the elevator while at the main entrance and then quickly get off to reveal a second lift. After getting off the lift you can find a Soul of a Nameless Soldier in a corner. At the top of the tower, offer a token of friendship to the Giant of the Undead Settlement so that he does not attack you with giant arrows and even assists you when you are next a White Birch. Take the lift down, and while facing the entrance of the tower, when you hear Siegward's voice, roll off to land onto a wooden platform. Head outside and speak to Siegward again. Lure the the Fire Demon towards the tower which makes Siegward come and fight by your side. After killing the Fire Demon you gain a Fire Gem. Speak to Siegward three times to receive a Siegbräu, the Toast gesture, and the Sleep gesture
  • Around the town, you can grab a Homeward Bone and a Large Club. You can also get the Northern Armor Set from a nearby hanging corpse
  • A Pale Tongue can be found on a nearby hanging corpse. Obtaining the tongue here or from invading successfully leads to Leonhard returning to Firelink Shrine. He then gives you the Lift Chamber Key that opens the door below the Tower on the Wall bonfire of High Wall of Lothric. Kill the Darkwraith imprisoned there to get a Red Eye Orb. Return to Firelink Shrine and talk to Leonhard to receive the Applause gesture
  • Walk into the house to get Red Bug Pellet x2. Walk upstairs and grab Alluring Skull x2. Walk across a bridge and into a house. Pillage a chest to get Human Pine Resin x4. Walk onto the roof and to the left to get Flynn's Ring

  • Drop down onto the ledge of a tower. Grab Homeward Bone x2. Drop down from within the tower to get the Mirrah Set without the mask and the Chloranthy Ring
  • Warp back to the Dilapidated Bridge bonfire, enter the graveyard pierced by giant arrows, and walk towards the house on the left. Grab Blue Wooden Shield + Cleric Set in front of the house and Mortician's Ashes by a tree to the left. If dodging the giant arrows is too troublesome, head to the tower to befriend the Giant
  • The Poisonbite Ring+1 is behind the well
  • Grab all the items around the White Birch (one of them being the Reinforced Club) including the Undead Bone Shard on the platform to the right of the White Birch
  • Enter the house and walk upstairs. Grab the Great Scythe. Continue to walk towards the stone building and open the doors on your right
  • Return to Firelink Shrine. Give Loretta's bone to Greirat, who then allows you to keep the Blue Tearstone Ring. You can reload the area and talk to Greirat again to learn the Curl Up gesture. You can reload the area once more and send him to pillage Undead Settlement. He returns when you kill a boss
  • Give the Shrine Handmaid the Mortician's Ashes and then purchase the Grave Key which opens the locked door in the sewer area next to the Dilapidated Bridge bonfire
  • Go back the sewer area and open the locked door. Climb down and walk towards Velka the Goddess of Sin's statue to grab a Loincloth
  • Proceed through the tunnel to get the Red Hilted Halberd. Continue into another room to get a Soul of an Unknown Traveler

  • Walk through the archway tunnel. Shoot down a hanging corpse to get a Blessed Red and White Shield+1
  • Walk into a new room and climb down to get a Saint's Talisman
  • Climb up and talk to Irina of Carim to receive the Prayer gesture. Touch her and accept her services. She then moves to the Firelink Shrine. After recruiting Irina, make sure to go outside and speak to Eygon. At the shrine, you can give Irina the Londor Braille Divine Tome, but doing so and buying any of its spells leads to her Dark ending. Otherwise, hang onto it until you find Karla later in the game
  • Kill the Curse-rotted Greatwood to get Soul of the Rotted Greatwood + Transposing Kiln. Give the Transposing Kiln to Ludleth of Courland so he can turn boss souls into weapons, rings, and spells
  • Talk to Hawkwood after killing the Greatwood to receive a Heavy Gem. If he does not give you anything, come back to him after killing another boss

Road of Sacrifices

  • If you haven't done so before, you can send Greirat to pillage Undead Settlement. He returns when you kill a boss
  • Travel to the Road of Sacrifices bonfire. Head down the path and drop down to the left of the tree to find a Shriving Stone
  • A bit farther on you'll find a Soul of an Unknown Traveler next to an overturned wagon
  • The Chloranthy Ring+2 is down on a ledge behind the first Corvian Storyteller
  • At the fork in the path, head left and drop off the path when it ends. Head left again (instead of going under the bridge) and kill the Madwoman NPC for the Butcher Knife
  • Grab the Brigand Axe, the Brigand Set, and the Brigand Twindaggers from this lower area
  • Turn around and head back up the path and under the bridge. Head up and across the bridge for a Titanite Shard
  • Cross back over the bridge and head to the next bridge. Before crossing it, drop off to the right to reach an area where you'll find the Braille Divine Tome of Carim and Morne's Ring. Give the tome to Irina of Carim at Firelink Shrine and buy all the spells it offers if you want her to become a Fire Keeper later in the game
  • Before entering the archway that leads to the Halfway Fortress bonfire, you can find an Ember on a ledge with a caster enemy
  • Talk to Anri of Astora at the Halfway Fortress bonfire. Talk to Horace the Hushed to get the Blue Sentinels covenant. Make sure to deplete Anri's dialogue before continuing the game
  • After meeting Anri of Astora, return to Firelink Shrine to talk to Sirris of the Sunless Realms to begin her quest line
  • Head into the Crucifixion Woods from the Halfway Fortress bonfire. Drop off the right side of the path as soon as it turns left, and drop again to grab a Soul of an Unknown Traveler
  • Drop off again and head straight while hugging the wall to your right. You'll arrive at a door. Head in and straight across to a balcony-type area where you'll find some stairs leading to the Sellsword Set
  • Drop down to find the Sellsword Twinblades directly underneath the corpse that had the Sellsword Set
  • A bit farther in the building you'll find the Farron Coal, which enables Heavy, Sharp, and Poison infusions
  • Head back outside through the same door you used to enter. Step into the water and follow the edge of the water to the left. Hug the cliffs and you'll find a Titanite Shard
  • Continue on with the cliff wall to your left. You'll head past the ramp that leads back up to the Halfway Fortress bonfire, but keep the cliff to your left after moving past it. You'll find another Titanite Shard
  • Continuing in this manner, you'll find a large group of Poisonhorn Bugs guarding yet another Titanite Shard
  • At this point, deviate from the cliff wall for a bit and head up the hill towards the water for the Twin Dragon Greatshield
  • Head towards the stone wall with the large broken arch (which you would have eventually reached had you stuck to the cliff wall). Grab the Fading Soul from the corpse before heading through
  • Turn right soon after heading through the arch to reach the Crucifixion Woods bonfire. Walk along the rocky wall towards the ruins until you reach a purple summon sign for mad phantom Holy Knight Hodrick. When summoned, he instantly becomes hostile, so kill him for souls
  • Head past where Hodrick's summon sign was until you reach a ledge. Fall down to grab the Estus Shard
  • Continue around the building to a large bonfire with an Ember
  • Finish your circuit around the building for a Soul of an Unknown Traveler
  • Back at the Crucifixion Woods bonfire, drop off into the water and kill the two Great Crabs for the Great Swamp Ring
  • If you are embered, dark spirit Yellowfinger Heysel invades around where the two giant crabs are. Kill her for Heysel Pick + Xanthous Crown
  • You will find the following items in the water: Green Blossom x2, Green Blossom x4, the Grass Crest Shield, the Conjurator Set, and the Great Swamp Pyromancy Tome. The tome and the set are in the deep part of the swamp near the entrance of Farron Keep
  • In the water near where you jump down from the Crucifixion Woods bonfire (near where the two Green Blossoms were), there are steps leading out of the water and a door to the left of them. Head through the door to find a small area with the Sage Ring and the Sorcerer Set
  • The Lingering Dragoncrest Ring+1 is next to a tree
  • Head back out of this small area and take the steps to your left. Enter the building and proceed to the next room ahead to find a hallway with a Crystal Lizard, which will drop a Crystal Gem when killed
  • Go back to the previous room and head up the steps all the way to a balcony. Drop off the broken end to reach a ledge with a Ring of Sacrifice
  • Drop down, head back up the steps to the same room you were just in, and head up the stairs in the room, but only until you reach the broken wall. Head through down the path to grab the Golden Falcon Shield
  • Drop down from here and kill the two NPCs for the Great Club and the Exile Greatsword
  • Near the water's edge is a corpse with the Fallen Knight Set. There is also a Large Soul of an Unknown Traveler by the wall
  • Head into the building the NPCs were guarding. There is Homeward Bone x2 on a balcony in here. Double back and head down the ladder to light the Farron Keep bonfire
  • Warp or run back to the Crucifixion Woods bonfire. Head into the ruins this time (the ones you previously traveled around before to grab the Estus Shard). The entrance is a hole in the wall in a small depression in the ground. In the first room you'll find the Heretic's Staff in an alcove to the right
  • Continue on until you reach a 4-way crossroads and then go through the door on your left that looks like it leads to a wall. Turn right at the wall and you'll eventually arrive at Orbeck of Vinheim. Talk to him and he agrees to teach you in sorceries only if you have at least 10 Intelligence and promise to bring him scrolls. He then moves to Firelink Shrine. If you do not bring him any scrolls before defeating 4 bosses, he will leave
  • Orbeck of Vinheim grants you different rewards based on certain criteria. If you are not a sorcerer, the Young Dragon Ring is given to you after buying three of his spells and giving him at least one scroll. You will be rewarded with the Silent Ally gesture and the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring after buying Aural Decoy, Farron Flashsword, Pestilent Mist, and Spook.
  • There are broken steps that lead down from Orbeck's study with Blue Bug Pellet x2. Drop off to reach the final room before the boss
  • In this room, near one of the stone pillars, Eygon of Carim has casted down a summon sign. You can summon him if you have recruited Irina to your Shrine and have not harmed her
  • Defeat the Crystal Sage; receive Soul of a Crystal Sage
  • Head down the winding paths past the Crystal Sage bonfire to find two Crystal Lizards, who will each drop a Twinkling Titanite
  • Continue following these twisting paths until you can drop down next to a large fire and the Herald Set. Continue on to the Cathedral of the Deep bonfire

Cathedral of the Deep

  • From the Cathedral of the Deep bonfire, head down to the left to find a hostile sword-wielding NPC and the Paladin's Ashes behind him
  • Back up by the bonfire, start heading up the first set of steps, but turn left about halfway up. Follow the path and turn right at the end for a Titanite Shard in an alcove
  • Head back to the steps and head up to the top of this first set. Before climbing the second set of steps, head right this time and follow the path until you reach the Crest Shield
  • From here, you can jump down and kill the axe-wielding NPC on the steps (he can be struck with a plunge attack using a big enough weapon) to get the Spider Shield
  • In the next area with the dogs and crossbow enemies, grab the Large Soul of an Unknown Traveler from a ledge
  • Continue on and light the Cleansing Chapel bonfire inside the chapel. There is also the Notched Whip in the corner
  • Grab the Estus Shard right outside the Cleansing Chapel bonfire where enemies are praying near an obelisk
  • Instead of heading up the steps past the obelisk, head right and drop down a couple of cliffs into a lower, water-filled area. Head forward a bit to grab the Saint-tree Bellvine from a stump on the right. Remember you can hold a torch to get rid of leeches
  • Continue down the waterway and head up the steps at the end. From the top of the steps, there will be a Titanite Shard to your right and a Crystal Lizard in front of you which will drop a Twinkling Titanite when killed
  • Farther down the path you'll encounter another Crystal Lizard which will drop another Twinkling Titanite. If you head up the stone steps near where the lizard was sitting initially, you can grab another Titanite Shard
  • From here, you can drop down to where the Ravenous Crystal Lizard is sleeping and kill it for a Titanite Scale
  • Near where the Ravenous Crystal Lizard was sleeping, you'll find a narrow path between the buildings which leads to the Poisonbite Ring
  • Turn around and head back outside and continue straight up a set of steps. Here you'll be able to grab a Titanite Shard from a window and drop back down to the Cleansing Chapel bonfire
  • Head back out past the obelisk with the praying enemies and head up the steps into the graveyard. Take your first left and stay left to reach the Astora Greatsword
  • Turn around from the previous item and head straight until you reach a T-intersection. Head left, drop off, and follow the path to the end to drop down in an area with a Fading Soul and the Executioner's Greatsword
  • Turn around and head out of this circular area, turning left when you can and crossing a bridge. Head up a set of steps, fight the Cathedral Grave Warden, and head down more steps to the right to an area riddled with large arrows. Here you can pick up an Undead Bone Shard, Repair Powder x3, a Young White Branch, another Young White Branch, a Large Soul of an Unknown Traveler, and finally another Large Soul of an Unknown Traveler
  • Head back up to where you fought the Cathedral Grave Warden, and head up the set of steps and turn right towards a tower. You can find a Titanite Shard to the left of the tower. Inside, grab the Curse Ward Greatshield, head downstairs, and create another shortcut by kicking down the ladder
  • Head back up and out and towards the cathedral's main double doors. Head left first and roll through some crates to find Rusted Coin x2
  • Heading right from the double doors, you'll find a corpse with a Red Bug Pellet
  • Continue on across the narrow roof (watching out for ambushes) and grab the Large Soul of an Unknown Traveler from the other side
  • You'll come across a few crossbow-wielding enemies in a lower area a bit farther on. Head down and kill them, then jump over onto the next buttress leading up. From above you can get the drop on a group of Thralls lying in ambush on the nearby roof. After expunging them, jump attack the other Thrall hanging on the wall, landing you right on top of Red Bug Pellet x3. At the other end of this walkway you'll find Undead Hunter Charm x3
  • Head back to the lower area where you fought the crossbow-wielding enemies. Continue down the path and take a left into a room where you can grab a Soul of a Nameless Soldier. (Watch out for another Thrall ambush)
  • Head back outside and continue around the perimeter of the cathedral until you reach a dead end with an Ember
  • Turn around and head back a short way to open a set of double doors which lead into the cathedral. Head left once inside and grab the Duel Charm from in front of a poison-spewing statue
  • Continue through a dining room until you reach a lift which you can take to open a shortcut to the Cleansing Chapel bonfire. Head back up the lift and take notice of the enemy lurking above before taking the long set of steps (to the right of the balcony) down to grab a Deep Gem
  • Head back up and out onto the balcony. Run around the perimeter, optionally killing the giant (he's easier to kill from the area below), and grab the Soul of a Nameless Soldier, Lloyd's Sword Ring, and Exploding Bolt x8 (or save them for later if the giant is giving you trouble)
  • Head through the door at the other end of the balcony. Take the first left and head across a bridge-like platform (watching out for Thralls and ceiling slimes) and grab the Seek Guidance miracle
  • Head back across the bridge and up the ladder to grab an Ember
  • From here, drop back down to the balcony where the giant attacked and head down the steps again. This time, head straight down to reach a room with a Mimic. Kill (or charm) it for the Deep Braille Divine Tome. Remember, giving this to Irina and buying any of the spells it unlocks will lock you into the bad ending of her quest. I recommend saving this for Karla, unless you really want some of the spells
  • From the Mimic, head down more steps and continue straight to a room with a Deep Accursed that drops Aldrich's Sapphire upon death. There is also an Ember in this room
  • Head back to the previous room and turn right to head through a door and up some steps. If you are embered, Longfinger Kirk will invade your world. He drops Barbed Straight Sword + Spiked Shield
  • Kill the giant if you haven't already (the one in the larger open area) and grab the Soul of a Nameless Soldier and the Maiden Set
  • Open the double doors next to where the giant was, head down some steps, and open another set of doors. Out here you can pick up the Saint Bident and Homeward Bone x2
  • Head back up through both doors and walk forward through the water until you can turn left up some steps. You'll find a Large Soul of an Unknown Traveler against the wall
  • Travel over to the other end of the large, open, water-filled area to the other giant. Kill this one and the slimes around him, and you'll be able to grab a Pale Tongue, the Drang Armor Set, and the Drang Hammers
  • Head up the steps behind where the giant was sitting, kill the enemies around the shrine, and grab the Ember from the ledge that overlooks the water-filled area
  • The Ring of the Evil Eye+1 is behind the shrine
  • If you turn to face the giant shrine, you should see a door to your left. Head through and you'll reach some double doors that open back out to a previous area (near the graveyard). Staying inside the cathedral, continue past these doors to reach Siegward (if he is not here, follow the first part of the next step). Grab Duel Charm x3 to the right of him. (Note: If you've already gone to the upper rafters where you drop down to Rosaria, the following encounter will not occur)
  • If Siegward is not there, leave the Cathedral completely (go to Firelink Shrine and come back) and then head back into the Cathedral through the large blue double doors you just opened. You will notice that a new bridge has been activated and Siegward is standing next to it. Talk to him and then cross the bridge to trigger a cutscene where it is revealed it was really Patches. Depending on if you killed the Giants or not, you'll either have to fight one or nothing happens
  • After being lowered, turn directly around and head through the door that's directly underneath the area Patches was standing. Head through a door and down several sets of steps to open the final shortcut to the Cleansing Chapel bonfire
  • As you head back through the shortcut you just opened, you should notice another door on your left immediately after you leave the chapel. Open it to reveal a lift, which will take you up to an area where you can climb a ladder to an enemy that drops the Deep Ring when killed
  • You can drop onto a new roof through the hole in the wall just past the enemy you just killed. Head up the roof, turn right, and begin heading down this long roof. Eventually you'll be able to turn right and head down another roof to reach an Arbalest. Head back up to the long roof and head to the end to grab a Pale Tongue
  • The Ring of Favor+2 is at the very opposite end
  • Turn around from the Pale Tongue location and head back down the long roof. Eventually, you'll be able to turn right and head back inside to the rafters of the cathedral. Head right first and grab the Blessed Gem near the wall
  • Zig-zag your way across the rafters towards the other end, sticking primarily to the right. Eliminate the knight with the crossbow and drop down near where he was standing to a platform with a couple of candelabras. Drop again and you'll find yourself back with Patches. He will be waiting here and pretend to not be responsible for what just happened. Tell him "You know who I am" to receive the Prostration gesture. You can speak with him again for a Rusted Coin. You can then buy Siegward's Armor Set from him. (Note: Purchasing this armor means Patches will not be a rescue option for Greirat later in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley)
  • Before leaving this area, continue on up the nearby stairs. Kill all the enemies and the non-agressive one will drop the Red Sign Soapstone. Continue on and you'll eventually find yourself at the Rosaria's Bed Chamber bonfire. Speak with Rosaria to obtain the Rosaria's Fingers covenant. For now, do not offer her any Pale Tongues if you intend to do Sirris' quest line. We'll continue this side quest closer to the end of the game
  • If you killed Longfinger Kirk when he invaded earlier, you can grab the Armor of Thorns Set nearby
  • If Patches didn't spawn at the Cathedral, return to Firelink Shrine and purchase the Tower Key if you haven't already and head into the Tower behind Firelink Shrine now. As you ascend the lift to the top, you'll hear a door shut behind you. Grab the Fire Keeper Soul at the top, if you haven't before, and then come back down to encounter Patches. He has locked the door and you'll need to drop down from the bridge onto coffins to escape
  • Head back to the Tower and get to the bridge that overlooks Firelink Shrine. Drop down onto the roof and move around the roof until you find some windows you can go through. An Estus Shard will be on the rafters (you may have done this already in the Firelink Shrine section)
  • While on the roof, you can hear Pickle-Pee, Pump-a-Rum crow. Trading a Homeward Bone will get you the Call Over gesture and the Iron Bracelets (you may have done this already in the Firelink Shrine section). For the other trade options see the Misc page
  • With the Fire Keeper Soul, you can heal Dark Sigils that you have in order to completely get rid of your Hollowing Level. If you are following Yoel/Yuria's quest line, however, don't do this until the postgame or you'll end up angering Yoel/Yuria
  • Refresh Firelink Shrine and head to the upper right to find Patches now located there. He'll ask for forgiveness; refuse to receive the Prostration gesture and a Rusted Gold Coin. You can then buy Siegward's Armor Set from him. Leaving Firelink Shrine and returning will allow Patches to be in his squatting position. Interact with him to receive the Patches Squat gesture
  • If you can't buy Siegward's Armor Set yet, head to the Cleansing Chapel and check the well at the entrance, where Siegward should trapped. After speaking to him, return to whatever location Patches is at for you and buy the armor
  • Return to the well Siegward is in and throw his armor down to him to receive the Rejoice gesture
  • Head back up the steps past where you defeated the second giant. Turn right at the giant shrine. If you are embered, you can summon Anri of Astora and Horace the Hushed (both behind the shrine) as well as Sirris of the Sunless Realms (before the fog door). Defeat the Deacons of the Deep and you'll receive Small Doll + Soul of the Deacons of the Deep
  • Rest at the bonfire so you can pick up the Archdeacon Set near the altar

Farron Keep

  • After defeating the Deacons of the Deep, return to Firelink Shrine to find Anri and Horace. Talk to Anri to progress the questline
  • Farron Keep is a poisonous swamp, hence it might be a good idea to buy a few Purple Moss Clumps from the Shrine Handmaid. In addition, any item with the Quickstep weapon art (such as the Dagger, also sold by the Handmaid) could be useful as well since it allows you to move unimpeded through the deeper sections of the swamp
  • Leave the bonfire and enter Farron Keep proper. Turn right and in the back corner you will find Purple Moss Clump x3. Continue into the swamp from there to find Iron Flesh between some trees
  • Optionally, and only if you are on bad terms with Yuria (healed the Dark Sigil or attacked her) and are embered, head further into the deep swamp on the right. Dark spirit Londor Pale Shade will invade your world among the Basilisks there. If you kill him, you will receive the Manikin Claws
  • The Magic Stoneplate Ring+1 is also in the deep swamp here
  • Head back to the Farron Keep bonfire, turn left this time and in the back corner you will find Ragged Mask surrounded by slugs
  • To the right you will see a Titanite Shard in the swamp
  • Turn right, head around the island, and in front of the partially sunken stone tower you will find an Estus Shard
  • To the left and past a large fire you'll see a Titanite Shard before the steps leading up
  • Instead of taking these steps, turn left once more to find Prism Stone x10 on a corpse on an island
  • Farther out (closer to the stone wall) you will find Stone Parma
  • From there go in direction of the rock wall on the right to find Rotten Pine Resin x4 against a tree
  • Follow this rocky wall to the left to reach a small structure guarded by a darkwraith. The Sage's Coal is on a body inside this structure, granting you Crystal, Blessed, and Deep infusions
  • Continue on, sticking closely to the rock wall on your right until it opens to some steps, which you follow up. Go through the archway and interact with the first altar (on your left) to extinguish the flame
  • Go back through the archway and pick up Rotten Pine Resin x2 ahead, then go back down the steps on this side
  • As you arrive at the bottom of the steps, continue straight on into the deeper swamp until you find yourself between two ramp-like segments of a sunken bridge
  • Ascend the one on your right for Purple Moss Clump x4
  • Turn around, cross over to the other ramp, and pick up the Greatsword
  • From there, look left to locate a stone pillar, behind which you pick up a Titanite Shard
  • Looking at the fire from there, head to your right towards the rock wall and follow that to the next fire to discover a set of steps as well as another Titanite Shard. (If you stay back as far as possible while picking it up, the Ghru Leaper on the other island should not notice you)
  • Head up and stick to the right to find Purple Moss Clump x2 between two trees

  • Facing away from the ladder, proceed to a small island with a Titanite Shard next to a fire
  • From the next small island with a fire, make a quick detour to the left where the Nameless Knight Set is stashed between a tower and a rock wall. (Going there may trigger an invasion by Yellowfinger Heysel, but she spawns out of immediate reach on the other side of the tower)
  • Up next is Titanite Shard x2 in front of a tree. (If the Elder Ghru in the area is giving you trouble, you can try luring him into one of the fires for some extra damage)
  • Keep heading closely along the rocks on your left until you reach a way up. (If dark spirit Yellowfinger Heysel is already in your world, you might encounter her in the area upstairs)

  • Warp (or walk straight along the outer walls) to the Keep Ruins bonfire. Standing at the top of the ramp leading down from there, drop off to the left, directly onto a Titanite Shard
  • From here you will see a Great Crab and a white birch when looking towards the wall. Kill the crab for the Lingering Dragoncrest Ring. (Lure the crab close to the white birch tree and the Giant of the Undead Settlement will assist you using his greatarrows)
  • Around this area you will find Gold Pine Bundle x6, an Ember, a Large Soul of an Unknown Traveler, a Soul of a Nameless Soldier, a Young White Branch, another Young White Branch, and the Crown of Dusk

  • Here you can find Atonement and on the right side of the cliff you can find a Hollow Gem
  • If you want to be able to access Yuria of Londor and the Usurpation of Fire ending, make sure that, before proceeding to fight the Abyss Watchers, you have Drawn Out True Strength 5 times with Yoel and then reload Firelink Shrine so that Yoel dies and Yuria appears. You can talk to her to receive the Dignified Bow gesture and buy the Londor Braille Divine Tome
  • Before fighting the Abyss Watchers, remember to give Orbeck the Golden Scroll and/or Sage's Scroll

  • To the right of the Ghrus you can find an Ember
  • Go up the right side and on the hill you will find Black Bug Pellet x3

  • If you have collected all the items around the three white birch trees so far, you'll find the Hawk Ring back where the giant was in Undead Settlement

  • During the battle you had an opportunity to grab the Grave Warden Pyromancy Tome, but should you have not picked it up then it can now be found in the far left corner of the goblet room. Cornyx can't read this pyromancy tome, so you'll have to wait until you free Karla to turn it in

The Sunset Armor Set will be available in the Pit of Hollows bonfire area and you will find the Sunset Shield on a grave at the cliff outside of Firelink Shrine (from the Iudex Gundyr bonfire go up the first set of stairs, then right)
  • After defeating Holy Knight Hodrick, Sirris will return to Firelink Shrine and she will ask to be your knight. Agree and she'll be able to be summoned for the final three main boss fights of the game. Refuse and you'll find her hollow in the Pit of Hollows

  • Upon defeating Yhorm, you will probably be teleported to Emma at the High Wall of Lothric (since this is the third Lord of Cinder). Speak with her to obtain the Basin of Vows. Approach the statue of a beheading knight to start the boss fight against the Dancer of the Boreal Valley
  • If Siegward helped you defeat Yhorm, return to Yhorm's boss room to find Siegward's Storm Ruler + Pierce Shield as well as his Catarina Armor Set. If Yhorm is your second Lord of Cinder simply walk towards the flame on the outside and Siegward will die, dropping the items

  • After clearing your way to the roof, you will encounter the entrance to the Dragonslayer Armour boss fight. Opposing this entrance, you will find a shortcut elevator to the entrance of Lothric Castle

  • There are two ends to Irina's side quest depending on your actions. (Note: If option B didn't happen yet check back after the Twin Princes fight)
  • Irina A: By giving her just the Braille Divine Tome of Carim and Braille Divine Tome of Lothric, or by giving her all 4 Tomes, but not buying any dark miracles, you can make Irina a Fire Keeper. Just buy all her standard spells, plus Med Heal, Tears of Denial, Force, Bountiful Light, Blessed Weapon, and Magic Barrier. (If you want the Saint's Ring, be sure to purchase it now, as she will no longer offer it later.) She'll move to the bottom of the tower to the left of Firelink Shrine after you refresh the world and will now act as a Fire Keeper. If you did give her the Londor and Deep Tome instead of Karla, they will be on the ground beside her and you can now give them to Karla
  • Irina B: If you gave Irina the Londor Braille Divine Tome or Deep Braille Divine Tome and bought ANY of these spells (Deep Protection, Gnaw, Dark Blade, Vow of Silence, or Dead Again), she will have disappeared for you sometime in the game from her normal location in Firelink Shrine. She would then be outside near the Iudex Gundyr fight area with Eygon. Eygon will believe you have killed her and is hostile. Upon killing him, you see that Irina is still actually alive, but the corruption has begun for her. This is an alternate way of Morne's Armor Set being available for purchase. After Irina returns to Firelink Shrine, buying all the dark miracles listed above will fully corrupt her and she'll no longer act as a vendor to you. Equipping Morne's Gauntlets allows her to believe you to be Eygon and she'll ask to be killed. Do so and you can give her ashes to the Shrine Handmaid to sell her miracles

Grand Archives

  • From the Dragonslayer Armour bonfire, facing the Grand Archives go right downstairs to find a Titanite Chunk
  • In the first area, you will find the Grand Archives bonfire with Black Hand Gotthard's corpse nearby, containing Grand Archives Key + Gotthard Twinswords. (Note: This body will only appear once three Lords of Cinder, namely the Abyss Watchers, Aldrich, and Yhorm, have fallen)

  • With Sirris' side quest complete, you are now free to finally continue Leonhard's. Head to the Rosaria's Bed Chamber bonfire (you might find a Man-grub in here which drops Heysel Pick + Xanthous Crown) and give her a Pale Tongue. Leonhard should now appear in this room. If not, refresh the world. Exhaust his dialogue, refresh the world again and Rosaria will now be dead with a Black Eye Orb on her body
  • Head to the Aldrich, Devourer of Gods bonfire and take either of the lifts in the room up. The Black Eye Orb will react to this room. Use it and you'll invade Leonhard's world.

FAQ

The foundation of this guide was based on Stephen McNabb's Dark Soul 2 Cheat Sheet source code and DeathGodGarra's NPC Side Quests Guide V2 walkthrough guide

This guide has evolved thanks to the many GitHub contributors with many great suggestions, fixes and improvements!

I have feedback, how can I contribute?

You can visit the GitHub repository and report Issues or create a fork and submit a Pull Request.

Is this a guide?

Nope, not really. This is a set of checklists and information that you can use while playing Dark Souls to make sure you don't miss an item, action, conversation, or boss. If you need playthroughs then you can click on the zone titles to read the wiki walkthrough.

Do I need to follow the playthrough in this exact order?

Dark Souls 3 is not a linear game and has multiple ways of progressing. This guide highlights zones as they become available, so feel free to follow however you please. You can always check things off in a different order.

Can I use this for multiple characters?

Yup, use the profile selector and buttons at the top right of the page to setup multiple profiles.

How does the checklist status get saved?
