OPTIONAL: MOONLIGHT BUTTERFLY AND THE DIVINE EMBER
the blacksmith Andre of Astora in the Undead Parish. From here, you can exit
out the bottom of the Parish past a Titanite Demon (see the above optinal
section if you haven’t already defeated it) and into the Darkroot Garden.
Take the path to the right of the door that is (or was) sealed until you reach a fog door.
Pass through it.
turn right and look for an odd tree: one that is moving ever so slightly.
Attack it to reveal a hidden path. Continue along this path and you’ll run into
another living tree. Cut it down to continue.
Look to your
right for a set of broken stairs leading up. At the top of this path you’ll
encounter a Giant Stone Knight.
These enemies cannot be backstabbed, so wait for them to attack, then
counterattack. Magic and Pyromancy are also effective against these enemies. Just
past this knight you’ll find the Wolf
Ring, which boosts your poise by 40 points. Go back down the stairs and
head right. Walk until you reach the cliffs edge, then, with the edge to your

several Giant Stone Knights lying in
the woods here. Getting too close will awaken them, so stay away if you don’t

area. This is the Elite Knight Armor
Set. You can grab it and run away if you don’t wish to fight the giants and
the demonic foliage that pop up.

however. Enter the tower and climb the stairs. At the top you’ll find a fog door. This leads to the Moonlight
Butterfly. Before you enter, make sure to equip a shield that has high magic
resistance (such as the Crest Shield).
If you have some Gold Pine Resin handy and a weapon to use it on, put it in
your quick slot.
BOSS: MOONLIGHT BUTTERFLY
is as simple as it gets: wait for the butterfly to land, then put your weapon
in both hands and swing away. While the butterfly is in flight, it will spit
various forms of magic at you. Dodge the slow-moving projectiles and block the quick
ones. If you have the Crest Shield,
or any other shield with high magic resistance, you will take very little
damage when blocking the butterfly’s attacks.
and go up the next tower. At the top you’ll find the Divine Ember and the Watchtower
Basement Key, the latter of which is worthless if you already have the Master Key.
