From the start point, you start through a tunnel, there is a Scale Miner on your right and a Crystal Lizard a little further. Try to use a ranged weapon to take it out and then rush it. Now you can choose between two paths, to go right or left. To your right, you will find 2 big groups of Scale Miners. The first one is composed of five Scale Miners, and the second group is composed of seven Scale Miners

To your left, you'll encounter a single Scale Miner and two shinning carts that if you get too close to, will explode. There's another exploding cart coming through the tracks if you take the left side. See Starting Point to Point A on Map 1.


You reach a wide-open room with a giant elevator in the middle. On your right, there is a Fat Official, in Demon's Souls Remake, the Fat Official may drop 1x Official's Clothes. Before going through the corridor, check the right side of the wooden mechanism, you'll find a corpse hanging by the railings, you can loot it to find x3 Augite of Guidance. Next, keep going forward through a narrow corridor that now and then is blocked by a rock formation that can be destroyed.

        So... I saw the black phantoms coming at me, realized I had like 2 healing items left and noped out of it and took the elevator back up. Then it came apparent that the black phantoms just straight up ran into the hole of where that elevator was and I have zero items to be found from these guys and they are most certainly considered dead since they did not respawn. Am I just out of luck here with those items now?!

        • I killed the huge bugbear near Patches before talking to him. The bear exploded and damaged him. Patches would only laugh and tell me I was a tough one. He was in the Nexus the next time I went there.
