Notes regarding missables
The format will start off by the name of the achievement followed by ways it is missed. If you miss something, then simply do it in the next playthrough as you have to beat the game three times anyways.

Master of Expression
Toast – As long as you’re still doing Siegward’s questline and he’s alive, you can still get this gesture. After that though, it’s missed.

Sleep – As long as you’re still doing Siegward’s questline and he’s alive, you can still get this gesture. After that though, it’s missed.

Prostration – This is given by Unbreakable Patches in either event: The first is when you get trapped by Patches in the Cathedral of the Deep. After confronting him after the trap, he’ll apologize and you’ll learn this gesture. The other method is to not forgive patches in Firelink Shrine

Patches Squat – Given by Unbreakable Patches in Firelink Shrine when he’s squatting. (He seems to be squatting permanently after you first talk to him)

Duel Bow – In order to earn this gesture, you must have five Dark Sigils (level up 5 times via Yoel which is missable completely: see Master of Miracles in the missable section). Now you have the requirement to summon Londor Pale Shade. Then summon him anytime and he will perform the gesture and teach it to you. If you beat all the bosses before summoning him, then you’ll miss out. He can be summoned for the Abyss Watchers near the Farron Keep Perimeter bonfire. He is also available before the Pontiff fight.

Proper Bow – This gesture can only be learned from the Yellowfinger Heyzel summon which requires you to turn in a pale tongue to the Rosaria’s Fingers covenant which also requires you to join the covenant. Joining the covenant will effective fail the Sirris of the Sunless Realm questline.

Darkmoon Loyalty – This gesture can only be learned from Sirris of the Sunless Realm. If you join Rosaria’s Fingers and do not receive this gesture from her in Firelink Shrine, this will be missed.

By My Sword – This gesture is obtained by summoning Black Hand Gotthard. He is summoned at the Abyss Watchers and Pontiff Sulyvahn. If you don’t summon him for these two bosses, you will miss the gesture for this playthrough.

Master of Miracles
Upon reaching the Undead Settlement, you will find Yoel of Londor. Befriending him will move him to Firelink Shrine as a merchant who also provides a free leveling service. Make sure to use expend all five leveling services PRIOR to using the Dark Sigil. Expending his services will kill him and he will be replaced with Yuria of Londor who sells the Londor Braille Divine Tome giving access to the following Miracles: Dark Blade, Vow of Silence, and Dead Again.

Also, if you buy all the dark miracles prior to learning any unique spell (especially those from a later tome), she will refuse to talk to you and thus not letting you use the tome.

Mound-Makers
The first instance of joining this covenant requires you to not kill the Cursed Rotten Greatwood boss of the Undead Settlement and heading from the Undead Settlement bonfire, go to the firepit, take the right across the bridge and take the path to the immediately right of the houses and trail the cliffside to a ladder. Take the ladder up and go forward and to the right and drop down to the isolated cliff. Here is a cage guy, DON’T KILL HIM. Interact with his cage to be moved to the Pit of Hollows then talk to Holy Knight Hodrick to join. If you kill the Cursed Rotten Greatwood, Hodrick dies.

If you miss the first attempt above, then your second attempt is to go through with the Sirris of the Sunless Realm questline. If you go through with this questline, you’ll miss a gesture in Farron Keep that requires you to join Rosaria’s Fingers. After defeating the 3rd Lord of Cinders boss, return to the gate where you enter to fight the Curse Rotten Greatwood and find Sirris’ summon sign. After helping her, she will let you join the covenant.
 
 
Host of Embers | Multiplayer
While the game still connects players using the White Soapstone item available from the Shrine Handmaid in Firelink Shrine at a small price of 500 souls, the naming conventions has shifted. As you are an Unkindled, or the Ashen One, you must now become a Host of Embers in order to summon players to your game, as well as be invaded. (This is the equivalent of being human in previous games)

To become a Host of Embers, you can do a few things:
  • Use the item ‘Ember’
  • Defeat a boss in your world
  • Defeat a boss in someone else’s world (you get an ember as well)

Multiplayer areas are cut off by areas. Each area has a specific boss, and as long as that boss is alive, you can summon players to help you. This stays true to invasions as well. If the boss is no longer there, you will no longer encounter invasions by dark spirits for that specific area.

Characteristics of Phantoms
  • You no longer receive the 1.4x health bonus for being a Host of Embers
  • You only receive half the number of estus rounded down based on each estus.
  • Example: If you have 5 estus and 3 ashen, you will only be summoned with 2 estus and 1 ashen.

Finally, there are three important statistics that affect summoning ranges.
  • Soul Level
  • Weapon Upgrade Tier
  • Covenant

Achievement Guide
The Dark Soul The Dark Soul
Complete all achievements.

This will unlock once all of the other achievements have been unlocked.

Hidden Achievement
To Link the First Flame To Link the First Flame
Reach “To Link the First Flame” ending.
  1. Do not wed with Anri. You can do Usurpation of Fire tasks like dealing with Yoel, Yuria and Anri. But do not perform the ceremony in the Darkmoon Temple.
  2. Do not end the fire by request of the Fire KEeper.
  3. After the final boss, light the bonfire.
Hidden Achievement
The End of Fire The End of Fire
Reach “The End of Fire” ending.
  1. Obtain the Fire Keeper Soul from the tower near Firelink Shrine accessed by the Tower Key.
  2. Obtain the Eyes of the Fire Keeper from Dark Firelink Shrine where Irina sits in the Untended Graves.
  3. Give these items to your Fire Keeper and exhaust her dialogue.
  4. After the final boss, summon the firekeeper through her summoning sign near the bonfire. Do not kill her; otherwise, you will not get the achievement.
Hidden Achievement
The Usurpation of Fire The Usurpation of Fire
Reach “The Usurpation of Fire” ending.

This is by far the hardest ending and the ending I recommend you do first. That way, subsequent runs can be rushed for faster completion. Note: Talk means to exhaust dialogue fully.

  1. Talk to Yoel of Londor in Undead Settlement. Move him back to Firelink Shrine by being his friend.
  2. Get 15 hollowing and level up five times for free through Yoel and effectively earning 5 Dark Sigil this way. NEVER HEAL THE DARK SIGIL. You may reverse hollowing at the Statue of Yelka if you wish to though or through a purging stone. Just never heal the dark sigil using the firekeeper.
  3. Yoel dies and is replaced by Yuria of Londor in Firelink Shrine.
  4. Talk to Horace the Hushed and Anri of Astora at Halfway Fortress bonfire in Road of Sacrifice.
  5. Defeat Deacons of the Deep in Cathedral of the Deep. Summon not required.
  6. Talk to Horace the Hushed and Anri of Astora in Firelink Shrine
  7. Talk to Anri of Astora in Catacombs of Carthus. From the first skeleton boulder, go to the peak of its path, drop off the stairs and then go through the doorway to the right and go down the stairs to find her.
  8. Talk to Anri of Astora next to the bridge at the end of the Catacombs of Carthus.
  9. Kill Horace the Hushed in Smouldering Lake. From the first bonfire, hug the right wall until you find a small tunnel. Horace is at the end of that tunnel. If you opt not to kill Horace, then DO NOT TELL ANRI WHERE HE IS. He will kill her.
  10. Return to Anri of Astora. If she is still here, you can tell her about Smouldering Lake if you killed Horace. If you didn’t kill Horace, DO NOT TELL HER ABOUT IT.
  11. At the Church of Yorshka bonfire in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley, talk to Anri of Astora. She will give you the Quiet Resolve gesture as well as the Ring of the Evil Eye if you didn’t get it before. Do not kill the assassin/pilgrim/statue in the corner of the room. You will lose this ending if you do.
  12. Defeat Pontiff of Sulyvahn in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley.
  13. Return to Firelink Shrine and talk to Yuria of Londor who states that your spouse is now ready for you at the altar.
  14. Proceed to the altar located just before Anor Londo. From the Anor Londo bonfire, take the spiral staircase down. In the circle room, attack the wall in front of you to reveal the secret altar. Talk to the Pilgrim who gives you the Sword of Avowal. Interact with Anri at the altar.
  15. I’d speak to the Pilgrim afterwards for the Chameleon Sorcery. Reloading the game here will also let you pick up Anri’s Straight Sword.
  16. Beat the game and its final boss. Interact with the bonfire.


Note: There have been talks about giving the Fire Keeper the Soul you get from the Firelink Shrine tower. You can give the Fire Keeper this item, but just make sure you don’t choose the Heal Dark Sigil option.

Hidden Achievement
Lords of Cinder: Abyss Watchers Lords of Cinder: Abyss Watchers
Defeat the Abyss Watchers, Lords of Cinder.

This fight has two stages. The first stage is where you fight him in a weird Free for All. There is only one enemy that will take damage with regards to the boss. Up to two more Abyss Watchers will spawn, but dealing damage to them will not hurt the boss health. You can actually get them to attack each other by baiting them into attacking each other before they aggro onto each other. Once the first stage is over, next one will be the true boss fight where he pulls out a huge fire sword. If you have a heavy weapon, make use of straggering him. If you don’t, you’ll have to be dodging a good bit.

Hidden Achievement
Lord of Cinder: Yhorm the Giant Lord of Cinder: Yhorm the Giant
Defeat Yhorm the Giant, Lord of Cinder.

This giant has one weakness. Storm Ruler special attack. Siegward will use it. There is another one on the throne. Get it and equip it. Two-hand the weapon, then hold Left hand strong attack (LT/L2), then when the sword flashes, hit the right hand strong attack (RT/R2) with LT/L2 being held. This will do massive damage to Yhorm. It also does not consume any FP during this boss fight.

Hidden Achievement
Lord of Cinder: Aldrich, Devourer of Gods Lord of Cinder: Aldrich, Devourer of Gods
Defeat Aldrich, Devourer of Gods, Lord of Cinder.

The fight is somewhat similar to the Crystal Sage in the regards that Aldrich likes to dig into the ground and then spawn somewhere else. He typically spawns in the four corners of the map. Now there are two attacks that I will mention because they’re dangerous. The first is when he shoots an arrow in the air. In Stage 1 of the fight, this has little consequence as the duration is short. In Stage 2, when he’s wielding fire, the duration lasts for like 30 seconds. So be careful. The second attack that you need to watch out for is the Lifehunt Scythe. He will deal damage to you and heal himself.

Hidden Achievement
Lord of Cinder: Lothric, Younger Prince Lord of Cinder: Lothric, Younger Prince
Defeat Lothric, Younger Prince, Lord of Cinder.

Another two stage boss fight. First stage consists of fighting Lorian, Elder Prince who mainly uses a greatsword. The only thing you should worry about is his ability to teleport around the room. Once you hit stage 2, Lothric, Younger Prince will piggy back onto his sibling to do a combination fight. Lothric will use several holy spells. A spell similar to a Soul Spear, a spell similar to Aldrich’s purple magic hail that will float around then home in on you all at once. There will also be two health bars, one for Lorian, one for Lothric. Depleting Lothric’s health will make him fall to the ground and drop his brother. Damage his brother meanwhile. Then Lothric will rise again and rinse and repeat. It’s very possible to deplete Lothric’s health before he fully stands back up letting you to continually attack him and his brother with no issues.

Pyromancy takes a little twist with the tomes, but all is normal. There are two people who can accept pyromancy tomes. Cornyx accepts Great Swamp, Crthus, and Izalith. Karla accepts Quelana and Grave Warden.

Where to Find Cornyx
If you know where the Cliff Understand bonfire is in the Undead Settlement, go there, then go up the stairs and onto the roof. Go up into the tower and across the bridge. Circle around and examine the cage in the corner. Free him.

Where to Find Karla
First you need to get to the Profaned Capital and go on the roof of the church. Follow the stairs and the one way hallways to the very end to get the keys. Take these keys back to the large prison room in the Irithyll Dungeon. Karla is in the small cell

Pyromancy Tomes
Great Swamp Pyromancy Tome: In Road of Sacrifices, from the Crucifixion Woods bonfire, you will see two crabs. Near the second crab far in the back at the wall, you’ll find this tome.

Carthus Pyromancy Tome: In the Catacombs of Carthus, from the Abyssal Watchers bonfire, go down the stairs and follow the pathway. Cross the bridge, go inside the next area and take the stairs to the left. At the top of the stairs, take the left, then turn right and take the ladder. Leave this hallway, then take the first right and attack the illusory wall. Go straight and turn right for the tome.

Grave Warden Pyromancy Tome: In the boss room of the High Lord Wolnir. It’s on the corpse right in front of the boss after the cutscene. Despite the item being available only during boss fight, it actually spawns in the bonfire room if you don’t pick it up during the boss fight.

Izalith Pyromancy Tome: In the Smoldering Lake, from the Old King’s Antechamber, take the closest door to the bonfire and go straight all the way. It’s on the corpse there.

Quelana Pyromancy Tome: From the same bonfire mentioned above, take the stairs down and go straight. At the end, go through the doorway and follow the linear path. Go through the hallway and turn right (left is a illusory wall to a black knight). Go straight and take the immediate left which leads you through hallway with a rat. Take the right hallway before that rat. Go straight and attack the wall straight ahead. Follow the path to find the tome at the end of the hall and a sad sight.

Reinforce a bonfire to the highest level.

Bonfire Levels can be increased by burning Undead Bone Shards at the Firelink Shrine bonfire. There are a total of 10 Undead Bone Shards per playthrough so this can be obtained in the first playthrough. If you miss any, they can be obtained at the end, or in the next playthrough. The starting level is 1, and goes up to 11. Each bonfire level will increase effectiveness of each estus flask and ashen estus flask denoted by a + value.

Undead Bone Shard Locations

  1. Undead Settlement: In the graveyard with the giant throwing javelins, there is a broken piece of land towards the right. The item is on the platform. You have to jump it.
  2. Farron Keep: From the Keep Ruins bonfire, progress towards the giant gate. To the right is a tower infested with slugs. The item is in the tower.
  3. Cathedral of the Deep: In the area where the giant throws javelins, go down towards the cliff edge where there’s a white tree. The shard is on a corpse next to it.
  4. Catacombs of Carthus: Dropped by the first Skeleton Boulder. Kill the skeleton with the hat near the pots. He keeps the boulder going. Killing him will kill the boulder. Check the boulder path for the shard.
  5. Smouldering Lake: Kill the giant worm

  9. Lothric Castle: Underneath the bridge where the two wyverns blow fire. It’s on the far end.
  10. Grand Archives: On the upper balcony where there’s a broken window near the round end of the archives. If you’re outside, you’ll want to encounter gargoyles. If you’re at the first gargoyle, you can drop off to the right immediately and follow the pathway to the shard. If you defeat all three gargoyles, follow the path and you can see a drop off to the broken window and access the shard that way.


If you can’t seem to find a specific shard, you can check a video guide, or pick up a more familiar shard in NG+ or NG++.

Ultimate Estus Ultimate Estus
Reinforce the Estus Flask to the highest level.

You can reinforce your estus flask at Andre the Blacksmith in Firelink Shrine by giving him an Estus Shard. Each shard will increase the number of total flasks you can have up to a total of 15 flasks. You begin with 4 flasks by default, so there are a total of 11 shards per playthrough.

  2. High Wall of Lothric: Before dropping down to the courtyard with the fountain and the winged knight, the shard is ontop of an anvil in a room with firebomb throwers.
  3. Undead Settlement: In the open area with the giant fire pit where you face your first evangelist, it’s next to the burning tree.

  8. Anor Londo: Located in a chest on the left side in the main room.

  • Otherwise, take the left path. That dragon is not alive, so don’t worry about it. Clear out this area and proceed to the ledge to the left and up the stairs. Clear out this area, then go up the stairs to find binoculars. Sadly, we cannot use these binoculars to aim spells.
  • Head behind the dragon’s tail and you should see a ledge to drop off of. Drop off here, take the item and drop down inside. Clear the two enemies here, and drop down the ladder.
  • Now that you’re back outside, there are two paths to take. The stairs will lure an actual dragon. The right path will not. If you lure the dragon, then take the right path, the dragon will kill most of the enemies on the right path. This dragon cannot be killed, but he can be forced to withdraw by doing roughly 80% of his health. Recommended strategy would be to get enough DEX for a bow and shoot his health down while aiming at HIS LEFT CLAW while standing on the stairs. You can get 3-4 hits in before he uses a fire attack. Rinse repeat until he goes away.
  • IF DRAGON IS GONE: You can go up loot everything, then enter the tower. Inside is a MIMIC, your first of the game. Attack the chest, do not open it. He drops a Deep Battle Axe infused with the Deep attribute (Dark). After looting everything, go up the ladder and open the gate.
  • If you skipped the dragon, simply take the right path and you’ll be at the same spot after ascending the stairs.
  • In the next tower, take your immediate right and up the stairs to find the next bonfire.
  • Bonfire: Tower on the Wall
  • From here, you’ll head down the tower, and will find a locked door. Ignore that for now, as I will address that key right after this area.
  • Continue in the other direction, and you’ll find yet another locked door. Inside is the NPC: Greirat from the Undead Settlement. The key to open his cell is the Cell Key which is available later in this level.
  • Go back up and outside to the rooftop. There is a transforming enemy here so kill it first if you don’t want to fight its transformed version (He’s the one closest to the peak of the roof). There’s also a crystal lizard on this rooftop.
  • Take the ladder down, and go inside of the building. Go straight, then take a right. Roll through the wooden objects here.
  • Key Item: Estus Shard | At the bottom of this room, it’s behind the the barrels on a corpse.
  • Key Item: Cell Key | Then in the same room, there’s a small set of stairs descending to a dead-end. The key is on the corpse.
  • After clearing this room, head down to the fat knight, officially named the Winged Knight. You can kill if you want, or ignore him. You can back-stab him.
  • Exit the area, and you’ll be in the final room so to speak. Take your immediate right, and go all the way up to the tower.
  • Shortcut: Lift | In this tower is a lift that takes you to the very first bonfire and open the gate to officially unlock the shortcut making the first bonfire the closest one to the boss area.
  • Go back to the final room.
  • Key Item: Small Banner of Lothric | | OGoing up will lead to you to the chapel where you meet Emma.
  • Covenant: Way of Blue | Keep talking to Emma after you get the banner.

1 10x Proof of a Concord Kept Darkmoon Ring
2 30x Proof of a Concord Kept ‘Darkmoon Blade’ Miracle


Obtaining Proof of a Concord Kept

  • One is obtained at the altar in the Church of Yorshka in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley.
  • One is obtained in Anor Londo, when you get inside the main room, it’s behind all the deacons on the left balcony.
  • Killing an invader as a blue phantom will grant you a Proof of a Concord Kept.
  • Killing an Aldrich Invader as a blue phantom will grant you a Proof of a Concord Well Kept. This can be used to obtain two Proof of a Concord Kept.
  • Rare drop from Silver Knights (Irithyll of the Boreal Valley/Anor Londo). The best spot for this is easily the Anor Londo bonfire with the two Silver Knights on the stairs and the Red-Eyed Silver Knight on the stairs to the right.

 

Shortly after getting Aldrich Faithful, you will have the opportunity to get this achievement too. Following the steps you made to get the Aldrich Faithful achievement, take the following steps to get this achievement.

  • Bonfire: Water Reserves
  • Now go back up the ladder and up the stairs. For DS1 players, this should look familiar. I recommend dropping off to the right path and then running to the halfway point. That way the tower will shield you from the silver knight that’s close. Once the knight at the top shoots, run up to him.
  • Key Item: Easterner’s Ashes | Once at the top, go to the right and down the stairs.
  • Go back up and go across the top and take a right. There’s a knight to the right wanting to ambush you. Go down the ramp and if you want, you can unlock a rather pointless shortcut by going passed the archer on the ramp. Otherwise, go in the doorway to the Darkmoon Temple.
  • Attack the illusory wall to the right where the giant statue is.
  • Ring | Reversal Ring: To the right of the altar in the Darkmoon Temple
  • We will return here later for the ceremony.
  • Go the other way and pull the lever. Enter the Spiral staircase and pull the lever at the top. Once at the top, light the bonfire.
  • Bonfire: Anor Londo
  • Go back to the spiral staircase, leave it up here. But take the stairs down. Once at the bottom of the staircase, go to where the bridge is. There will be a tower in the distance. The bridge is actually invisible. Simply walk forward until you’re perpendicular to the tower with the bonfire. Then go towards the bonfire.
  • Bonfire: Prison Tower
  • Covenant: Blade of the Darkmoon | You should have the Darkmoon Loyalty gesture from Sirris if you’ve followed this guide. If you do, you may kneel to Company Captain Yorshka and she will let you join. If you do not and failed Sirris’ questline, killing Yorshka and looting her body will let you join. However you will not be able to turn in Proofs of a Concord Kept to her.

Obtaining Pale Tongue

  • When invading using a red eye orb, you will always obtain a Pale Tongue for killing the host.
  • Rare drop from Dark Wraiths (Farron Keep). From the Farron Keep Perimeter bonfire, go forward and there will be two darkwraiths fighting against several Ghrus. Bait the Ghrus and kill the Darkwraiths.

  • One is next to a chained giant in the Cathedral of the Deep.
  • One is on the roof where you access the rafters in the Cathedral of the Deep.
  • Can be boosted with another player: Using a MP password, the phantom puts their Red
    Soapstone Sign down and the other player summons them. The phantom cannot be a Warrior of Sunlight or Mound-Maker. The host can suicide or die to the phantom and the phantom will receive a Pale Tongue. Killing a blue sentinel will result in a Forked Tongue which can be used to obtain two Pale Tongues.

Joining: Must be done prior to beating the Cursed Rotten Greatwood boss of this area. From the Undead Settlement bonfire, progress until you reach the firepit. There will be 3 routes to take. Take the bridge route. Before going into the houses, take the narrow path to the right. Follow the path to the end and take the ladder up. Drop down to the route and you’ll find a saw guy with a giant empty cage. Interact with the cage and you’ll get inside and a cutscene occurs moving you to the Pit of Hollows. Talk to Holy Knight Hodrick and you’ll get the covenant item.
Banner Location 2: Undead Settlement
Joining: If you miss the first method above, then this can be done PROVIDED YOU’VE NEVER JOINED THE ROSARIA’S FINGERS COVENANT. After defeating 3 Lord of Cinders, you can return to where you fought the Cursed Rotten Greatwood (topside) and you should see a summoning sign for Sirris of the Sunless Realm. Help her and she’ll let you join the covenant.
If you miss both, you’ll have to wait til next playthrough.

Rank Requirement Reward
1 10x Vertabra Shackle Bloodlust Katana
2 30x Vertabra Shackle ‘Warmth’ Pyromancy


Obtaining Vertebra Shackles

  • You need 30 for Master of Pyromancy.
  • As a mad phantom, kill either a phantom or host to obtain a Vertebra Shackle.
  • Guaranteed drop from mad spirit Holy Knight Hodrick when he invades you in the Undead Settlement near the Dilapidated Bridge bonfire. Must be embered and Curse-Rotten Greatwood must be alive.
  • Rare drop from Red-Eyed Skeleton Swordsman (Catacombs of Carthus). You can find a few of these near the Catacombs of Carthus bonfire. From there, go backwards and through the hallway to encounter them.
  • Can be boosted with another player: Using a MP password, the Mound Maker puts their Red Soapstone Sign down and the other player summons them. The host can suicide or die to the phantom and the phantom will receive a Vertebra Shackle. As mad phantoms can actually attack hosts, a White Soapstone Sign should work as well as long as you’re in an area that the area boss is still alive for the host.

 

After unlocking the “Warrior of Sunlight” achievement, follow these steps.

  • Unlock the door, then go back up the stairs and head backwards and at the firepit area, take the route over the bridge. Instead of going straight through the buildings, take the route to the right. There will be some annoying guys throwing darts at you, but nothing too hard to deal with.
  • At the end of the path, go up the ladder and head to your right. Drop off onto the pathway here and you’ll see a guy with a cage. Do not examine the cage just yet.
  • Ring | Fire Stoneplate Ring: You should see a corpse hanging from a rope which holds an item. If you attack it, it’ll most likely end up on the landing below. Try to attack it from the side so it lands on the cliff you’re on. If you can’t get it to land up top, this item will be mentioned again later
  • Now that you’re ready, examine the cage and you’ll enter it thus bringing you to the Pit of Hollows area. YOU MUST DO THIS PRIOR TO BEATING THE CURSED ROTTEN GREATWOOD BOSS. I highly recommend doing it this way for complications that arrive later.
  • Covenant: Mound-Makers Now that you’re in the Pit of Hollows, go up to the candle lit corner and talk to the NPC.

  • Rare drop from Ghru (purple guys). This can be farmed in two spots. Right at the Keep Ruins bonfire, you’ll find three on a bridge. Kill those three, rest, repeat. The other spot is a big longer, but easier to kill as all 3 are not aggro’d simultaneously and can be killed before every attacking.

1 10x Human Dreg ‘Great Deep Soul’ Sorcery

Obtaining Human Dregs

  • Obtained from killing the Host when summoned as a territorial invader. Also counts if another invader kills the host as soon as you’re being summoned.
  • One is obtained near the Aldrich Faithful covenant location after fighting the two giant lizards in the water reserve.
  • Rare drop from Deacon of the Deep (Irithyll of the Boreal Valley/Anor Londo). There are two locations you can farm this at. The first is right after Pontiff Sulyvahn. Take the elevator up and walk through the doorway to the right. You’ll find a fair bit of Deacons here. Second spot is from the Aldrich, Devourer of Gods bonfire, walk backwards and you’ll have three deacons here. Go up each staircase for more deacons. I prefer the first area since they’re all in one spot.
  • Note regarding drops: There are 3 types of Deacons. Regular, Tall, and Fat. I’ve never had Human Dregs drop from a fat deacon. The regular deacon seemed to have a higher drop rate for them.

 

This will be obtained while at Irithyll of the Boreal Valley. After completing the boss fight against Pontiff Sulyvahn. This walkthrough will help if the above guide is not enough.

  • Return to the Field of Giants and ascend the stairs and go inside the tower. Do not take the stairs inside. Instead, go to the left far corner of the room and attack the left wall. It’s an illusory wall. Also, be careful of falling.
  • Take the ladder down and you will be in the water reserve. Here, you will have to fight two Sulyvahn’s beast. If you stay near the ladder and aggro the right one, the left one will get stuck on the pillar and the wall. This way, you can have to single fights instead of fighting both at the same time.
  • Ring | Ring of Favor: Given after you’ve defeated both Sulyvahn’s Beasts.
  • Covenant: Aldrich Faithful | In the corner is Archdeacon McDonnell, fat deacon. Talk to him.

  • From Profaned Capital: Go backwards and across the bridge and back into Irithyll Dungeon. You’ll be in the room with all the health reducing enemies. Run through them and straight. You’ll get to a staircase and then you’ll find the dragon statues to your left.
  • From Irithyll Dungeon Bonfire: Go straight into the dungeon until you reach the ledge. Turn to your right, then left across the bridge. Take another left to the end and drop down. You should’ve unlocked this elevator that will lead you to the dragon statues. If not, use the Profaned Capital path.
  • Once here, you’ll see a broken dragon statue sitting. To the left of him is a rug, use the Path of the Dragon gesture here.
Hidden Achievement
Iudex Gundyr Iudex Gundyr
Defeat Iudex Gundyr.

First half of the fight is pretty simple. Attack in between his attacks and you’ll get halfway no problem. At the half way point, BACK UP. After he enters his second stage, simply stay close to him sidestepping his attacks. Any wider swings, roll to dodge them. If you fight him long range, he’ll throw you off with his odd moveset.

Hidden Achievement
Vordt of the Boreal Valley Vordt of the Boreal Valley
Defeat Vordt of the Boreal Valley.

I’ll give you 3 tips for this fight: 1. Safest spot is to attack his butt. 2. Watch out for his mace, he has slams and two swings. Most easily dodged. 3. When he charges, he charges 3 times everytime.

Hidden Achievement
Curse-rotted Greatwood Curse-rotted Greatwood
Defeat the Curse-rotted Greatwood.

Simple boss, just know that the boss only takes damage if you attack the eggs on his body.

Hidden Achievement
Crystal Sage Crystal Sage
Defeat Crystal Sage.

He will have mirages, and teleports a ton. His teleport location WILL ALWAYS BE ON THE EDGE OF THE MAP. Furthermore, when casting spells, his spells are purple. The mirages will cast blue spells.

Hidden Achievement
Deacons of the Deep Deacons of the Deep
Defeat the Deacons of the Deep.

This boss is SEVERAL enemies. Focus your damage on the deacon with the red glow. Multitarget skills are preferred.

Hidden Achievement
High Lord Wolnir High Lord Wolnir
Defeat High Lord Wolnir.

Again, some tips for the fight. Focus ALL of your attacks on his golden bracelets. Breaking his bracelets will do MASSIVE damage to him. Breaking all three bracelets will kill him. Asides from knowing that, be wary of the blue mist. It deals massive damage to you. The mist will always be surrounding his torso and down. He also has a spell where he breathes the mist that will temporarily engulf the area around him. So keep your distance.

Hidden Achievement
Pontiff Sulyvahn Pontiff Sulyvahn
Defeat Pontiff Sulyvahn.

Like most bosses, he has two stages. The first stage is just him alone. The second stage, he will summon a phantom that will mimic his attacks with a slight delay. You can kill the phantom. Other than that, just the usual sword dodging.

Hidden Achievement
Dancer of the Boreal Valley Dancer of the Boreal Valley
Defeat Dancer of the Boreal Valley.

A slow boss with odd movement, but the moveset is pretty easy. The most dangerous moveset is definitely when the dancer begins spinning as this spin lasts for a long time.

Hidden Achievement
Dragonslayer Armour Dragonslayer Armour
Defeat Dragonslayer Armour.

Again, like most bosses. Two stages. First stage is simple, his attacks are heavily telegraphed. The only warning I will give is watch out from being launched off the bridge. In the second stage, a butterfly (those root looking flying things) will assist the Dragonslayer Armour in the fight. The Armour himself will only obtain one two-handed move. But other than that, easy fight.

Hidden Achievement
Old Demon King Old Demon King
Defeat Old Demon King.

Like most demons in the game, his movesets are for the most part similar. However, he does have 3-4 additional attacks. There are two sets of fire rings. When he stabs the thick part of his hammer to the ground, he will use this fire ring attack. Run far away as it can either start from him, or start from the longest range possible and close in making it a 100% hit if you’re inside. The same attack can also be chained, so if it starts in and goes out, it may continue out and go in. And vice versa. The next attack is when he raises his hammer in the air. He will summon a rain of fireballs. Finally, the last attack occurs when he’s at low health. He will kneel down and explode essentially. Does massive damage.

Hidden Achievement
Oceiros, the Consumed King Oceiros, the Consumed King
Defeat Oceiros, the Consumed King.

His moveset is very similar to that of Vordt of the Boreal Valley with maybe three distinctions. He can fly, and he’s faster. When he flies, he will use the White Dragon Breath sorcery. He also has a spinning move which can easily be dodged as his main attack range is his legs and tail.

Hidden Achievement
Champion Gundyr Champion Gundyr
Defeat Champion Gundyr.

Surprisingly not, he holds the same movesets as Iudex Gundyr. Two differences. He does not mutate in this fight. The other off-putting difference is his rhythm. Most of his attacks will start, then pause, before resuming with a quick action.

Hidden Achievement
Ancient Wyvern Ancient Wyvern
Defeat Ancient Wyvern.

There are two ways to kill this dragon. Normally, and then a OHKO plunge attack. Plunge attack will net you souls for killing him now. For the plunge, simply go up the stairs, and follow the path to the left and keep going until you find the fog gate. To the left is a ladder, go up the ladder then drop down to the broken arch over the dragon. Drop down and use the plunging attack and it’ll instantly kill him.

Hidden Achievement
The Nameless King The Nameless King
Defeat Nameless King.

This boss has two stages. The first stage consists of the king on the wyvern. The wyvern itself has ridiculously low health, so you’ll want to play this stage flawless for the stage to come. When the wyvern lands, try standing roughly in front of him until he turns his neck right. he will breathe fire allowing you to get massive damage. Once you deplete the wyvern’s health, you’ll reach Stage 2 and face off with the Nameless King himself. The style of this fight is similar to that of the Abyss Watchers stage 2, but the king has a little more spell usage with lightning storm and a few charges. Stay close, dodge his attacks, get a few hits in, then repeat.

This will be completed in the Cemetary of Ashes.
