Go to the
bottom of Firelink Shrine and take
the elevator down to the ruins. Before you cross the long wooden bridge into
the ruins proper, make sure you have at least two Transient Curses stocked (you can buy them from the merchant inside
the aqueduct or find them on the corpse in a pot just before the first wooden
bridge leading into the ruins). Use of this item allows you to use any weapon
to deal damage to ghosts for a limited time. You’ll only need a couple because
ghosts tend to drop them, you’ll find them as loot in the ruins, and a merchant
in the ruins sells them for 1000 souls.
reach the ruins, you’ll see stairs in front of you. Instead of going up them,
turn around to your right and you’ll notice a corpse with an item in the
distance. You can cross a very narrow submerged bridge to reach the item, which
is a Fire Keeper’s Soul. Just be
warned that a trio of ghosts will spawn when you cross the bridge, so hurry
across and attack them from safer ground.
Now go up
the steps you saw before. Continue on, being careful of ghosts, until you
descend a spiral staircase. At the bottom, go forward and grab the Parrying Dagger from the corpse, then
head back towards the stairs and take a left. Run past the fog door and loot the corpse you find for a couple more Transient Curses.
the fog door. Run up the stairs and kick down the ladder. This opens up a
shortcut between here and the entrance. Continue on slowly, always ready for a
ghost to come up through the floor or from behind a wall. Go down the next
flight of stairs and through the door on your right. You’re now in a large
rooms for a fireplace. Inside that fireplace, you’ll find a ladder leading to
the roof, where you can find Ingward,
a merchant. Speak to him and, if you have or had the lordvessel, he will give
you the Key to the Seal.
Go back into
the house and take the stairs down to the lower level. You can find the Cusebite Ring here. Exit out the
house’s lower door and take a right once you reach a fork (seen above) in the road (taking
the stairs left leads to a green titanite shard). Go up the stairs, then run
forward into the tower ahead (or, take the next flight of stairs up to find Humanity
and a Rare Ring of Sacrifice, the
latter of which is on the roof of the house.
the tower, head up the stairs, which lead to a Composite Bow. Then go back down and open the gate using your newly
acquired key. Turn the lever to open the floodgates, lowering the water level
of the ruins and opening up new areas. Go back into the tower and pull the
smaller lever to bring an elevator up. Use the elevator.
Time to meet
the Darkwraiths. These humanoid
enemies are fairly quick but easily backstabbed. Just watch out for a slow
magic attack called the Soul Drain, which deals heavy damage and steals one
If you turn
right you’ll notice the massive door to the Valley of the Drakes is now open. If you haven’t cleared the Drakes
from their bridge and claimed the goodies around this area, do so now. Also, if
you exit the gate and make an immediate left, you’ll notice a ladder. Climb it
to find a Red Tearstone Ring. The
item on the bridge is the Brigand Armor set
and the Spider Shield.
through the gate and take a right up some stairs. Go through the small wooden
hut (watch out for the Darkwraith at the end) and through the fog door. Once
you pass through, be prepared for a fight with two Darkwraiths and a
slow-moving blob called a Mass of Souls. Lure the Darkwraiths back through the fog door and deal with them, then move in
to take out the remaining enemy. As long as you are mindful of the explosive
skulls the Mass of Souls spits out intermittently, it is easy enough to move
behind it and hack away.
room for a small doorway, beyond which is some stairs. Make your way to the top
level of this area to find the Very
Large Ember in a chest. Return to ground level and look for another small
doorway leading to an elevator. This serves as a shortcut back to the New Londo
Ruins entrance. When you are ready, return to this main room and go through the
conspicuous wall seen above is illusory. Break it with a weapon and cross the bridge
beyond to find a Titanite Chunk.
Climb up the
next set of stairs into a room where you’ll find two Darkwraiths, two ghosts,
and a Mass of Souls. Again, lure out the more mobile enemies before dealing the
the fog door. Equip the Covenant of
Artorias and descend the stairs all the way to the bottom. Then, simply
drop off the ledge (if you're not wearing the ring, then you will simply die).
BOSS – FOUR
The key to
this fight is to wear your strongest armor, swing your most damaging weapon (or
shoot it), and end things as quickly as possible. The battle begins against only one king, but the others will join shortly. The point is to not fight
more than one king at a time.
and circle around the first king. Putting your weapon in both hands, hack away
and continue circling as your stamina charges up. Don’t worry about getting
hit; if you are wearing your strongest armor, the Kings’ physical attacks won’t
do much damage. If you stay close, the King will simply swing wildly, rarely using magic or its grab
attack, the latter of which is telegraphed.
In the video, we killed each king before the next one could spawn. If you
cannot do the same, the strategy becomes completely different, and we can only
say good luck - and why didn’t you listen to us?
