Boletarian Palace is a Location in Demon's Souls. A huge stone castle in the northern kingdom of Boletaria. Hungry soldiers whose souls have been stolen by demons attack trespassers, and terrible dragons nest there.

World Tendency Events

White World

  • The door on the left near the starting point will be unlocked. Requires Pure White or Pure Black World Tendency.
    • Once unlocked, it will stay unlocked even if World Tendency changes later.
    • Pick up the set of Brushwood Armor at the bottom of the pit. This is the heaviest armor set, so bring your Ring of Herculean Strength along. Remember that heavy items will disappear forever if you examine them and then leave the level without picking them up.
    • In the same pit, on one of the beams, is a Colorless Demon's Soul, don't miss it! Look for a broken beam near the ladder, walk carefully into the gap. If you walk straight, you will land on the beam below. You can get further down by carefully dropping to a lower beam; you should line the jump up from the central beam. Walking straight and turning on the narrow beams can be made simpler by using a bow in sniper mode.
  • People have claimed that the Red and Blue Dragon disappear; this isn't always true. If this occurs, you can grab the goodies in the field in front of their usual nesting place.
    • This also mean that there will be no Red Dragon breathing fire at you while you try to cross over to access the lever. (in NG+ and beyond)

Black World

  • The door to left near the starting point will be unlocked. Pure Black World Tendency or Pure White World Tendency required.
  • Black Phantom Executioner Miralda appears; drops Guillotine Axe. Pure Black World Tendency required.
  • Two Black Phantom Blue Eye Knights appear outside the Mausoleum, beside the Red Eye Knight

Full Boletarian Palace Walkthrough

The Boletarian Palace is the first area you will have access to. After you defeat the first Demon, Phalanx, the Monumental in the Nexus will unlock all other archstones for you to enter all other worlds.

First move forwards and up the stairs: you will soon notice that many crazed slaves attack you from behind impromptu barricades. Depending on your origin, you might want to keep your distance and use spells, or be close up agressive. To avoid taking too much damage, remember that you can block the attacks and parry, and learning to time this could be of great benefit to you. Use this slaves as practice enemies.

When you arrive at the closed giant door, you will see an open path to your left. There is another closed gate in front of you (marked as 3 in Map 1) that you will be able to open later on. For now, follow the narrow path and you will be attacked by a slave with a crossbow and two sword-wielding slaves. The strange "Black Hole" in the floor is lethal, so to clear this section you would do best to run straight towards the crossbow enemy, up the stairs of his platform and kill him, and then turn back to kill the slaves, if they have not fell into the void.

Proceed into the structure and you will be ambushed from enemies taking advantage of the darkness. Keep your shield up at all times!

You will eventually come to point A and fight two enemies with fire bombs. Behind them is the first fog of this level: touch it to move forward.

Now you must follow the path upwards whilst fighting some enemies. Most of them have fire bombs so keep your shield up and roll forward to avoid being hit.

On the last set of stairs, marked as point 1 in Map 2,  there is a soldier waiting for your to start upwards to make you live an Indiana Jones-like moment, by pushing a giant rock your way. Simply walk upwards and then run back down and out of the way to avoid it. Now you can also jump down the way the rock fell and obtain the BASTARD SWORD, then come back up to kill the guard who pushed the stone.

You are now in the top of the outer wall of the Palace. There are two paths, marked as D and B on Map 2. Ignore D, you will come back here later. Set towards B instead and meet your first Blue Knight.

This enemy has strong attacks, good stamina and has Moon Grass that it will use to heal himself, so beware! The initial tactic would be to throw a fire bomb at him and follow with a light attack, then roll out of his counter. He will pursue you if you run, so try to time an evasive roll as he attacks you to get behind him and perform a fowerful back stab.

Once you have killed him, you can walk towards point 2 (Map 2) and jump down to get the LIGHT CROSSBOW and some bolts. You will then have to make your way back up to this point.

The second fog is behind where the Blue Knight was, but do not go through it yet. First go towards point B (Map 2) and down the stairs. Keep your shield up, as you will be attacked by fire-blade enemies and there are explosive barrels around, so keep your shield up and use X to dash backwards when you see an enemy slashing at you.

Proceeed down the stairs until you find an opening in the wall leading to an ouside alcove. This is point 2 in Map 1. You will see a set of chains, attack them and you will get some important items when you get to the bottom of the stairs.

Now go back into the structure and continue going down, always being careful of the slaves and explosive barrels. When you reach the bottom, you will find your first ring: the CLING RING. Equip it immediately if you are in Soul Form, as this ring will give you 25% more health. Now use the Lever and open the gate in front of you, marked as 3 in Map 1. You now have a shortcut to the second Fog.

Make sure to get the Jade Ornament from just outside the gate you have opened. You can show this to Stockpile Thomas back in the Nexus to obtain another important ring, the RING OF HERCUEAN STRENGTH.

Now that you have opened the shortcut, you can head back and go through the second Fog. You are now at point E of Map 3.

Go down the stairs and towards point 2. You will see some explosive barrels and a soldier inside the structure: as soon as he notices you, run back the way you came or you will be killed by the explosion generated from the firebomb he throws at you.

After the barrels are destroyed, you can proceed and kill him, and other 2 guards, then head towards exit F. You will be ambushed by more enemies and crossbow-soldiers. Take them out whilst remaining evasive. Then head upwards towards point H, killing the crossbow soldiers you encounter. Point H is the 3rd fog of this level, and is defended by a Blue Knight. Kill the knight with a combination of evasion and quick parries/firebombs, but do not go through the fog yet.

Now backtrack down all the way to the ground level. Kill the many enemies that await you and then clear the way to point G by smashing the crates. Continue forward and defeat yet another Blue Knight, then go left to kill the enemies in the section that has the hardstone/sharpstone fragments. After you have killed them, continue towards the point where you will meet Ostrava. He will ask for your help in killing the soldiers, do it and you he will come down and meander around the section.

After you have cleared all enemies, you can backtrack to the start point and jump down to where Ostrava was standing (Marked as point 1 in Map 3) to obtain the THIEF RING.

You are now ready to go through the third fog. You are now at point H of Map 4

Walk towards point 1 of Map 4, and attack the wooden structure. Doing this will free a number of giant rocks rolling towards the enemies that were ready to ambush you in this passage. You can now safely walk and collect items.

You will arrive at an intersection and be attacked by 2 spear-wielding soldiers. Divide and conquer is best for this foes, and remember to roll to evade their attack and then deal a quick counter. Once they are dead, you can go towards point 2 or point 3. At point 2, there are the King`s Dragons. One of them will breathe fire on the whole area, making it a daunting challenge to gather the items. You have the choices:

1. Come back later when you have changed the World Tendency to Pure White, there will be no dragons

2. Use ranged magic or arrows/bolts to very slowly deal damage to the Red Dragon until it goes away.

3. Lure the Red Dragon out to point 3, run back towards to point 2, collect some items in a hurry, rush away, repeat. (You will use most of your recovery items and will likely die)

Whatever your choice above, you will eventually have to continue towards point 3. To survive this part, you must first lure out some of the enemies to the safe "intersection" where the two spear soldiers attacked you. Defeat the enemies here and lure out some more.

When you have ventured far enough into the bridge, the Red Dragon will come and breathe fire on it, killing most of the enemies (and you if you don`t dash back the way you came).

Observe the Dragon`s pattern and, when you see your window, rush towards point 4, ignoring all other enemies. Once you are behind the Dragon, you can turn around and kill the reaiming soldiers.

Afterwards, go to point 4 and use the Lever, that will open the door to the Demon Phalanx.

After this, you can venture forth and kill some more enemies, and start descending a set of stairs whilst defeating "mini phalanx" enemies. Their weak spot is on the back, so keep your shield up, run towards them, and position yourself behind them to be able to kill them.

When you reach the bottom, you will be at point C of Map 1. You can use the lever to open the gate, and see the final and 4th fog of this level.

Go through the fog and comfront

Phalanx

This demon has very low fire resistance, so use turpentine in your weapon and firebombs. During your first playthrough, it is best to keep a rythm of:  shield up, roll, throw firemomb, run in a circle, attack with turpentine weapon.

You will slowly defeat the mini-phalanx sorrounding the real boss. Ignore the items they drop and continue attacking.

Once he is dead, you will get a "You are revived" message, which means you have your body back (hence your full health bar, you can unequip the "cling ring" now). Do not touch the archstone yet. Collect the items.

Full  Phalanx Archstone Walkthrough

After you defeat the Demon Phalanx, you will gain access to the second area of the Boletarian Palace. It is advisable to do some grinding and leveling up in other Worlds before coming here, as you will need fire resistance to survive the level and strong spells to kill this boss.

Starting from the Phalanx Archstone, you are now proceeding towards point A in Map 1

In the first room, camouflaged by the overall darkness, are mini-phalanx enemies. You should run through to the other end of the room and use their attacks to identify their positions, then backtrack and kill them by using their weak spot: their backs.

Once you have killed them and collected the many ores they drop, look for point 1 as marked in the map above. Here you will meet Ostrava, who is again entrapped and in need of assistance. Talk to him to trigger the quest and then walk towards point A

From point A, you will soon notice that the Red Dragon is flying in a circle and torching the way with his fire. To avoid being killed by it, your only choice is to run after him right after he passes, IGNORING all items, until you reach the safety of the next structure.

Do not continue forward:  go outside and climb up the stairs, and kill all the guards to get a WOODEN CATALYST that will enable you do learn and practice magic.

 After defeating those enemies, head down all the way towards point C, to enter the tunnel under the bridge.

Once down, go left towards point B, killing everything in your path, until you reach Ostrava. Talk to him to end the side quest. You should be aware that he can be killed by enemies, so make sure to kill everyone before you rescue him.

Once that is done, you should go back the way you came from and either continue along the tunnel or go back up to the bridge top. If you choose to go up, remember to ignore all items in the way, or the Dragon will kill you. Look for the pattern to time your dash, and find refuge from fire behind the carriage that is just before the structure: you can, from here, aim and kill the archers that attack you.

If you chose to go down, pay close attention to messages from other players, as there are a couple of ambushes and some fierce wild dogs waiting to attack you en-masse. At the end of the tunnel, you will again meet the Phalanx Archstone vendor. You can see an item shining behind him: you cannot reach it yet, you will have to complete Tower Knight Archstone before that area becomes available.

Once you are at point D, go back to the top of the Bridge and wait for the dragon to kill the enemies on the way. You will now have to dash forward, but you will be received by archers and a Blue Knight at the end of your dash, so this is tricky. In order to preserve stamina and be able to block/attack, follow this technique:

Equip light armor that does not affect your stamina regeneration
Have a quick weapon and a strong weapon on your right hand.

  • Equip the Thief Ring
  • Cast a protection spell just as you start your dash
  • Apply turpentine or sticky white stuff to your weapon
  • As you reach the other end, keep your shield up and move quickly: use your fast weapon to kill the soldiers, then roll backwards to evade the Blue Knight`s attack (don`t go too far or the Dragon will get you).
  • Now you have to quickly change to the strong weapon and maneuver yourself away from the Dragon`s range. Use
  • whatever means  best suit your class to defeat the Knight.
  • After killing the first Blue Knight, heal yourself and continue forward. You will be challenged by another Blue Knight.

You are now entering the area from point E in map 2

After you defeat the second Blue Knight, look for a stairway to your right, marked as point H in the map above.

Go up the stairs quickly and get to the Crystal Gecko (Marked as red triangle above). Kill it to obtain ores, and go up the stairs to the roof if you want the items. You will have to kill 2 crowssbow soldiers here.

Note that point G is not accessible until you obtain a Key from Tower Knight Archstone

Once you are ready, cast a protective spell and walk through the fog to fight the Demon

Tower Knight

It`s best to have:

  • Protection Spell
  • Strong melee weapon (Meat Cleaver, etc)
  • Strong ranged attack (Lava Bow, White Bow)
  • Strong ranged magic (Soul arrow, Sould Light, Fireball)
  • Death Cloud spell (Will paralize the Demon)


First, run to the right or left and up the stairs. Your objective is to kill ALL archers on both sides. Once you have done so, secure a position in one of the archer`s sniper points.

The Knight will attack you with a ranged spear spell.  Use R3 to lock onto his head. Learn to time a roll backwards to avoid being hit (you can also use the wall to cover you, but sometimes it does not work). As his attack misses you, he will cover himself with the shield. You should watch his movement and, as soon as he is generating another spear, you should unleash arrows/magic on him. This will give him no time to cover himself from your attack.

Continue like this until he dies or, if you are using Death Cloud, wait until he is paralized, jump down, and then do heavy melee attacks to his head for massive damage.

It is a slow process to kill this boss, and if you are a melee user you will likely have more trouble. For melee users, you should have leveled up enough to have a decent physical defense and stamina, and a strong melee weapon. Use any sort of protection that you have available.

After you have killed all the archers, jump down and learn the timing/warning signs of the Demon`s attacks. Your objective is to attack his ankles, which will eventually cause him to fall.  The most effective way to do this is to run through his legs immediately and then stay behind him, being careful of his "jump backwards" attack. When he falls, you get a chance to hit his head for mayor damage, but you should be careful not to be killed by his weight when he hits the ground. If you see your health depleting, run upstairs towards safety to heal yourself.

After you kill the Demon, a new Archstone appears, and gives you the Iron Soul. Do not consume it: you can learn the very useful "Total Protection" spell using this Demon Soul.

The next area, Tower Knight Archstone, is behind a "Thick fog" and you cannot gain access to it until you defeat any of the main demons of any other area (Dragon God, Old Monk, Stormking or Maiden Astraea)

  • This Archstone is an excellent place to farm half moon grass and late moon grass. Turn around and head back toward the Phallanx Archstone. The two blue-eyed knights that guarded the Tower Knight's arena respawn with their backs to you. Each time they die, they always drop at least two of one of the grass types, and the archers beyond them have a chance to drop crescent moon grass. This can be repeated quickly and indefinitely.

Full  Tower Knight Archstone Walkthrough

1. Your starting position for this map, the Tower Knight Archstone. The door ahead will remain locked until you destroy an Archdemon (the final boss of another world) so go do so if you haven't already.First though, turn around to notice that you can sneak up on the Blue-Eyed Knights that pestered you in the last map. Also note the locked door on the right side of the Blue-Eyed Knight hallway. Finally, be sure to stock up on arrows for this mission. Bring as many as you can carry; there are a lot of opportunities for sniping and you don't want to run out halfway through. Once you're done examining things here, proceed forward for a quick scene. Enter the courtyard area. Watch out for the two Dogs in this area while you relieve the fallen soldiers of their souls. Note the gate in the upper right hand corner, this will become important later.

2. As you climb this staircase, a soldier will spring a trap and send flaming balls down at you. Hide in the corner. a scene will trigger and the gate ahead will close. As you proceed up the stairs, remember the level's only to the right, and the first time you approach, three Soldiers will burst out of the alley. Take them out and head up to the newly closed gate to grab a Stone of Ephmereal Eyes. make a left into the alleyway. Two Soldiers will be patrolling this area, one in a square just outside the alleyway, and another up and down the stairs. Lure the Soldier patrolling the square out and engage him. Once he's dead, go for the Soldier patrolling the stairs. Because he lacks a shield, he's easy pickings for your bow. After he's taken care of, notice the open ledge at the top of the stairs. This is the perfect spot to pick off the Crossbow Soldier. You can also drop down to find an item, but leave that for now. First go down the stairs and you'll come across a new enemy, one who looks much like a certain Assassin. Lure him up into the square as he is very dangerous in tight quarters. The Imperial Spy can attack quickly with a dagger or throw knives from afar. Watch his attacks carefully and ONLY attack when he's stunned to save yourself some hurt. Once he's down, move downstairs and proceed along the alleyways. Note the ladder you can climb for an item.

4. Keep your shield up, as there is an Imperial Spy on the stairs in the Southeast corner. Another thing to note about these enemies is that they're often equipped with Thief Rings, making them only visible when you come close. Another thing to watch for is the flaming ball positioned at the top, which will come down on you if you proceed up the stairs. Run backto dodge it, then go back up the stairs and enter the first side alley on your left. An Imperial Spy will be waiting, so lure him back into Point for and take him out normally. Now enter the first side alley on your right to find a lone Crossbow Soldier. Keep moving up the stairs and enter the last side alley to find an item. As you procure your prize (A mere Slave's Shield) an Imperial Spy will drop behind you, blocking your escape route. Fight him normally, but be very cautious as you're in such a tight space. Finally, kill the Soldier at the top of the stairs.

5. This is where things get troublesome. You'll notice three Crossbow Soldiers on a ledge ahead of you. Take them out in the alleyway and not out in the open, lest you receive a big surprise, That surprise is a Red-Eyed Knight lurking in the building to your right along with two Soldiers. Try to lure the Knight out and not the Soldiers, as the Knight will require all your attention. If you encountered the Knight in Phalanx Archstone, let me remind you that you do NOT want to get hit by any of his attacks. Play defensively and only attack when he's stunned or trying to heal, and you should be fine. Now lure the Soldier out of the building and take him out. As you enter the building, watch out for a second Soldier lurking just behind the corner to ambush you. Go up the stairs ahead to find a merchant and an item just outside the door. This ledge is a good sniper perch to take some health off of the Fat Minister (given that he's still there) which will make your life easier later. Once you're done, head back downstairs and proceed through the fog door on the left.

6. Use extreme caution here, as inside the long hallway is a Red-Eyed Knight wielding a sword with both hands. This Knight is exponentially more dangerous than the others, so lure him out into an open area before engaging. Your shield is practically useless against him as if you block his attack he'll catch you in a stun lock and kill you if you don't roll away as fast as possible. He'll usually attack twice or three times in succession before recovering, so strike after he stops attacking.

7. There's an assassin lurking in wait here, as well as the Fat Minister from earlier. Take out the assassin first then move to the Fat Minister. He moves and attacks slowly, but will make your life rather miserable if he gets a hit off. He also has a load of HP, some of which you hopefully took off earlier. Whittle him down to nothing and relieve him of his Iron Ring of Keys before moving on. A myriad of foes awaits you on the next landing, including Crossbow Soldiers, Regular Soldiers, and an Imperial Spy. Take out the Crossbow Soldiers first and the Spy when he appears, then finish off the Regular Soldiers. By now this should be simple. Continue onward along the walls to find another Red-Eyed Knight wielding a two-hander. Ouch. Take him out as before, but be careful, as it would be a shame if your journey ended here. Snipe the Crossbow Soldiers across the bridge, kill the soldiers, and keep on keeping on.

8. This entire area is really more of the same. Same Soldiers waiting for you and everything. Note the side path that leads to an item, and just continue along the walls as usual.

9. The Fat Minister that locked you out earlier is here. One has to wonder what he's been doing all this time. Anyway, you can sneak up behind him and get a few hits on him. Kill him quickly though, as your good buddy Ostrava will be in need of help on the other side of the gate. Again. Once the Minister is dead, take his sweet hat and pull the lever to open the gate. Ostrava's gotten himself cornered by two Red-Eyed Knights and a Soldier. Help him kill his adversaries but be careful not to die yourself. Once they're dead, he will thank you by giving you a Pure Clearstone. Sweet. And now that the gate's open you can easily return here without going through all that side alley silliness again. Before we proceed, however, remember that locked door all the way back before you faced the Tower knight? Head back there.

10. Use your Iron Ring of Keys to open the locked door here, and move down into the dungeon area.

11. Another Fat Minister will be waiting for you here, and this one likes to shoot fire out at you, so equip some fire defense. If you've been through Stonefang then this will be simple. Once he's dead, take his Bloody Key. There's items scattered around in some of the cells here, so use your Iron Ring of Keys to open them.

12. One of the cages, however, contains a very helpful ally. Meet Biorr, of the twin fangs.  While he's inclined to continue napping for now, he'll be of great assistance against some of the later bosses of this world. However, we're not done freeing people just yet. Leave the dungeon and return to the iron door.

13. Use your Bloody Key on this door to find…more alleyways! This is a relatively uneventful trip, aside from the Stone of Ephemeral Eyes in one of the side areas.

14. The first thing you'll likely notice is the laughing of a Fat Minister, as well as some items off to the side. Grab them and don your sweet Minister's Cap and the Minister above will lower the stairs for you. He won't be hostile until you take off the Cap or attack him, so feel free to move behind him and backstab him.

15.Yuria the witch waits here to be rescued. Take off your Minister's Cap as she won't take too kindly to you with it on. After talking with her, she'll tell you to go on ahead while she rests and escapes to the Nexus. Now that we've finished this little sidequest, it's time to move on with the level.

16. This is another rough spot, but one that can be handled easily with a good strategy. You'll find all manner of Soldiers, as well as 3 (!!) Red-Eyed Knights guarding a Fat Official. First, snipe all of the Crossbow Soldiers with arrows, and lure out the Regular Soldiers one at a time with them. When they're all dead, move forward for a quick scene as the Fat Official escapes. Now the only things remaining are those three menacing Red-Eyed Knights. The best strategy here is to equip the Thief Ring so they don't all try to come after you at once, and use arrows to lure each of them out, one at a time. By now you should have had some solid experience dealing with Red-Eyed Knights, so they shouldn't be too much of a hassle. Once, they're gone, proceed up the stairs to the final fog door.

Full  Penetrator Archstone Walkthrough

You start out this level at the Tower Knight Archstone archstone. As you move forward you will notice 3 archers just inside the next doorway. Two archers will be standing on what looks like a dead dragon. The third will be to the left of the dead dragon. You can either attack them with melee tactics, or shoot arrows at them from a distance. Just past the archers is a gecko. You can also shoot it with arrows to kill it, but don't get the loot just yet.

Off in the distance, at the far end of the room with the archers in it, is 3 Black Phantoms. One is a female archer, One is a sword wielder, and the last is a heavily armored Knight type. The archer and the sword wielder are relatively easy to take out. I used arrows, but you could easily tease them closer to you one at a time to kill them. Do not take them on all at once or you will die quickly. After you kill them they will not respawn. So if you die on the last Black Phantom, you will not have to fight all 3 again. Just be careful with the heavily armored Phantom. He is very hard to take down even for melee. He has large sheild that covers his whole body and he uses a spear so he doesn't have many openings to hit him. With a little patience it should not be a big problem.  Also with all 3 phantoms if you can get them to follow you back toward the Tower Knight archstone at one point they quit following and turn around.  This leaves their back open for quick and easy shots with magic or arrows.  If you stand in just the right spot they will repeat the advance and retreat without being able to land a melee strike (very affective on the heavily armored phantom).

When you have killed the 3 Black Phantoms, turn left to find a treasure (Ephemeral Eye). Then run straight to the other side to another alley-way. There is another gecko in here but he's hidden behind a breakable barracade. If you're quick you can kill it for its treasure. At the end of the alley there is a doorway to your left. Be careful when you enter because there is a Blue Eye's Knight on the right side waiting to ambush you. After you kill him you can climb up the stairs. As you climb there will be 2 archers and an assassin trying to kill you. A good bow should take care of the archers. The assassin might come down to greet you. If he does a few quick hits will take care of him.

When you get to the top of the stairs you can go through the doorway to a path that leads to a bridge with 2 Fat Ministers on it. When you step on the bridge the Blue Dragon will start blowing flames across the bridge. He will fry one of the Fat Ministers but the second one will have to be teased into coming out into the bridge more so the dragon can kill him too. Be careful not to venture to far out into the bridge or you will get burned too. When the 2 Ministers are dead you have 2 options here. You can either shoot the Blue Dragon with arrows from this doorway, try to run to the other side of the bridge. If you choose to shoot the Dragon it will take a lot of arrows to get him to about half health. When his health is halved he will fly to the next section.

If you choose to run then just equip flame resistance ring and the Purple Flame Shield helps too. And maybe water veil. After you make it to the other side the Dragon will fly off to the next section of the level, the main stairway.

At the next doorway you might find another gecko. If you do take him out before you proceed. When you do continue you exit a room to another area of the outer courtyard of the castle. There is a set of stairs and the Blue Dragon is sitting on top of a perch above the next doorway which is your next goal. You need to get through that doorway under the Blue Dragon. This is where you have another 2 options to decide on your next path.

If you choose to kill the Dragon you can either sit at the bottom of the stairs, out of the Dragons reach and start shooting arrows at him again. This will take quite a while because you don't do much damage from this distance. A quicker way to kill him (but more risky) is to run up the stairs to get right under the Dragon and target his head and shoot. This way he gets hurt more and he dies quicker. If you rescued Biorr he will be at the bottom of the stairs distracting the Dragon for you. If your arrows are strong enough you will kill the Dragon before Biorr dies. Otherwise he gets toasted. If he does don't forget to pick up his armor before you go further. The dragon should die with about 75-100 more arrows.

After the Dragon is dead you can pick up the loot that was on the stairs, and Biorr's armor and continue through the next door.Now be carful here,equip the ring that gies you less magic power but more magic defense because whether you killed Ostrava or not he comes as a black phantom to kill you.He is extremley easy so you shouldnt have a  problem.Now go up to the door. This door is actually an elevator. Just hit the switch in front of you and the elevator goes straight up to the final fog. When the doors open you can enter the fog.

When you first enter there will be a cutscene. Then Allant will start walking toward you. If you don't move at this point he eventually stops and turns and faces away from you. This gives you an opportunity to do several things. You can buff up, and get ready to do some serious backstabbing. Or you can use several spells to weaken him. If you choose to melee you have to do a lot of dodging and make sure he doesn't get close to you. He has several attacks that can kill you in 1-2 hits. He also has soulsucker that takes one point away from your stats.

When you're done with this boss fight you can touch the archstone to get the boss soul and go back to the nexus.

Stonefang Tunnel is a Location in Demon's Souls. City of the burrowers, keepers of the huge tunnel.
Most of the stubborn excavators who supported the soldiers of Boletaria had their souls taken. Lacking their own will, they mindlessly continue working.

World Tendency Events

White World

  • No White World events

Black World

  • A Primeval Demon is located outside, at the bottom of the elevator where enemies are throwing boulders. You can see the demon from the stairs at the archstone.
    • Note: The Primeval Demon shows up one World Tendency lighter than Pure Black and is likely to drop a Colorless Demon's Soul when killed.
    • The wheel to activate the platform is inside the building
  • A Pick Axe wielding Black Phantom Scale Miner is added to the 3 Flame Blade wielding Scale Miners by the second fog-gate. If you break the barrels and cart straight here, it will lead to the outside where you can activate the rotating platform used to reach Blacksmith Ed
  • Two Pick Axe wielding Black Phantoms Scale Miners is added to the group of Flame Blade Wielding Scale Miners and stone throwers. They are alert to rear approach.
  • A Pick Axe wielding Black Phantom Scale Miner is at the end of the last Wooden Bridge, before the Boss area

Full  Stonefang Tunnel Walkthrough

You will gain access to the Stonefang Archstone after you defeat Phalanx on the Boletarian Palace and talk to The Monumental. This level will give you Harstone, Sharpstone, Spidersonte and Clearstone

Your entry point to this level is marked in Map 1 as point 1.

You will have to go up a set of stairs and you will soon see the Crystal Gecko that lies to the left side ahead. In front of you, there is the Dirty Man merchant, and if you U turn you can see the way to continue the level.


First, equip a ranged magic and the Thief Ring, and carefully approach the Gecko until you can lock onto it. If you succeed, you will be able to get a hit in without him noticing you, which gives you time to close in and finish him with melee attacks. If he senses you and starts running away, follow him quickly but be careful or he might fall down the cliff ahead (a deadly fall for you as well).

Once you have done this, you can explore point A. This is a lift that you will activate later and will grant you access to Blacksmith ED and also act as a shortcut towards the end of the level.

Now walk towards point  2. You will see there are two crazed miners throwing rocks down on your way. Stop near the end of the narrow passage and watch them for a while to learn the pattern, then dash forward when you see your chance. Beware that the rock`s "splater" can damage you as well, so you would want to start running when the way is completely clear. As soon as you enter the building, look right and find the handle marked as point 2, and use it to activate the outside lift. Get on the lift by carefully maneuvering to a platform, and use the right stick of your controller to see your surroundings and stop the upper platform in which you will get off.

Inside this building, there is a Fat Minister. This incredibly annoying and powerful enemies attack you with a strong fire spell, and smack you if you get close. You could die in one hit if you fire resistance is low, so be careful! The best tactic is to lock onto them, and roll to evade their attack, and counter with a quick ranged spelll, then roll again. They are ironically weak against fire, and bleeding weapons work as well. If you are a melee user, roll out of the way of his attacks as you close in, then use your shield to parry his melee attack. Once the minister is dead, you can kill the miners and retreive the CRUSHING BATTLE AXE +1

Use the lift to get back to point 2, and continue the level. Note that there is another area on the bottom of the lift. There is a Stone of Ephemeral Eyes there and, if the World Tendency is Pure Black, you will find a Primeval Demon. This enemy is very easy to kill and will give you a Colorless Demon Soul, that you can use to learn an important miracle later on.

Back in point 2, start forward to point C. On the way, you will see many miners, some of whom will attack you. Kill everyone to obtain Spiderstones, but be especially careful of the ones holding a pickaxe or a bag of rocks. Their eyes shine and they are the most agressive enemies. They are weak to fire.

As you continue you will also be attacked by a pack of wild dogs, so it is best to proceed with caution and a raised shield. Keep your Thief Ring on to avoid being detected too early.

After you kill the dogs and all miners, you can face the Fat Minister that is inside the structure, close to where the Chunks of Hard and Sharpstone are on the map. Collect the items after you defeat him and take out your shield and a short melee weapon : you will now enter a narrow set of stairs and be ambushed by pickaxe miners in every corner! To survive this section, you should remember to carefully peek around every corner, and roll backwards to avoid the enemy attack. You can then counter, but these enemies take a lot of damage so it will be a slow process.

As you clear the stairway, you will arrive at point C of Map 1. You are now one floor up. The first thing you must do is  RUN LEFT AND UP. There is a Fat Minister right in front of where point C was, and he has all the advantage, so the first step is to get out of the way. Continue along as if you were going to the fog, point D. When you are on the bridge leading to point D, you should be in range to lock onto the Fat Minister, and kill him with a combination of rolls and spells. Once he is dead, backtrack to point C, and run through the wooden planks (Marked as a brown line in Map 1) without stopping and sticking to the left side (the rest of the path will collapse). Once you have obtained the items here, drop down to point 3 and use the lever to open the gate leading to point D.

You can now kill all remaining enemies and drop back again, then retrace your steps to get to the fog. You are now at point D of Map 2

When you enter this area, you can see to your left, on the wall, a Fire Gecko. These enemies are dangerous, so take it out from a distance. Once it is dead, you can pick up your first Splinter of Meltsone. Meltsone is used to downgrade a weapon, but you do not get back any of the ores that you used to upgrade said weapon. It is likely you will never use this item.

Next you should head up the stairs to the left of the entry point (right way towards point E if you are looking at Map 2). You will see a circular room with many fire geckos, that you can carefully eliminate with a ranged attack to obtain splinters of dragonstone. After the fire geckos, you will notice a pool of lava close to some stairs. Ignore that section for now. Concentrate on the 3 miners with hot iron spears guarding the entrance of point E (the next fog). These guards are dangerous because of the effect and range of their weapon: keep your distance and use a bow/magic to kill them one by one. If you are a melee player, lure them out and kill them one by one by evading their initial attack and countering from behind.

After you kill the 3 miners, do not go through the fog. Continue towards point A instead. Some more miners will be in your way, kill them and then get to the handle marked as 1 in Map 2. Use it to activate the lift, that will give you access to the bottom chamber where Blacksmith Ed is available (Map 1 point A). This will also work as a shortcut to the Archstone if you get killed in the future.

Now go back to point E and walk through the fog. You will be ambushed by yet another pickaxe miner. Defeat him and enter a blacksmith room, kill everything in site, then walk forward and, INMEDIATELY after you exit turn right and destroy the barrels to gain access to the roof. From the roof, you can kill the enemies that lure downstairs, without scaring away the Crystal Gecko. If you want, you can drop down behind them and rush to melee them, but it is best to keep a distance as there are many of them. Once they are dead, you can get the Gecko, and jump after him if he drops down, you will safely land in the earlier floor.

Your next objective is point 2. To get there, you will have to go up some wooden stairs towards a square structure that has fire geckos in the walls. Remember to keep your distance as you kill the geckos: there are 2 of them on each side of the square, so a total of 8. After you defeat them, you will start down and be attacked by dogs, so keep your shield up!

Continue and when you reach the area with point 2, be careful of the pickaxe and rock bag miners: stay evasive and run back to safety if you need to eat grass. Once the path is cleared, you can turn the handle in point 2 to drop cold water on the lava, making that area accessible. Drop down the ledge and head towards the area where the lava was, you can now cross and go towards point F.

Standing right in front of point F is a Fat Minister. He has the clear advantage as your way is blocked by explosive barrels, so your first objective is to make him attack the barrels so they explode, but without getting you burnt. One you can get into the room, use the pillars as cover to pop in and out whilst you use spells. If you are a melee user, you will want to use the pillars to get close, and to use as cover when you need to refill your health.

Go through the fog. You are now in point F of Map 3.

Walk forward and notice the spiderwebs around: you are close to the next Demon. You will be ambushed again by a hot spear miner, so walk cautiously! You will eventually come to a darkened area with a square platform-lift marked as point G. Before you use the lever to go down make sure to head up the wooden planks and get the KRIS KNIFE that will give a bonus to your magical attack. If you are coming here for the second time because you were killed, the lift will not be there. Use the handle marked as point 1 to call the lift back.

Once you are on the lower level, look for the Chunk of Spiderstone hidden in a corner, and then you could use a Stone of Ephemeral Eyes to revive yourself and wait in front of this fog until you see a Blue Eye Stone Marker and can call an ally. Do this especially if you are a melee character.

Go through the fog to fight the Demon

Armored Spider

To defeat this Demon, you should have the following:

The easiest way to defeat this Demon is to take a ranged approach, as it has very low magic defense.

Stay right next to the entry point (marked as green in Map 3), lock onto the spider`s head, and dodge the firey rocks the Demon spits at you, timing your ranged attack in between hers. She will throw a web at you that slows your movement, which is very dangerous, so whenever you see her head go up and aim with her tail, start rolling right and left until her attack has hit the ground. If you do not wait until the web hits the ground, it will change directions and get you. Repeat this slow process until you kill it.

If you are a melee user, and you don`t have the bow or arrows, get some sticky white stuff on your weapon, head straight up and left. Have the Total Protection spell on at all times! You should coordinate your attacks from here, and use your shield whenever she lashes at you. Be careful: if you see she is getting ready to do firespray, you should run towards the entrance as fast as you can!

Full  Armor Spider Archstone Walkthrough

After defeating the Demon Armored Spider, you can access this area, that has the most Crystal Geckos of any other area in the game.

From the startpoint (Armored Spider Archstone), you can chose to go right or left. You will see a Crystal Gecko inmmediately ahead of you, however there is also a pickaxe miner on the way, so be careful. The Gecko will flee towards point 2 on Map 1: there are many enemies awaiting so proceed with caution!

If you chose to go towards point 2 (also point E in Map 1)

You will have to carefully drop down a series of ledges until you reach the bottom and point G, that is very close to the boss area. There are items and Geckos down this path, and you can meet Wanderer Scivir if you have Pure White/Black World Tendency.


This is a shortcut to the boss, so you will miss many important items from the other path. Be sure to bring the Cat`s Ring with you if your dextrexity is low, as you will be taking damage from the drops from platform to platform. To figure out the path, watch your surroundings closely and take small steps. There are messages from other players in many of the hard spots.

Details on Wanderer Scivir:

  • He will only appear if your Stonefang Archstone is Pure White or Pure Black World Tendency. See this section to learn more about this.
  • If you encounter him in Pure White, he will talk about the Keel Smasher, a weapon forged to defeat dragons. You can find this weapon in Flamelucker Archstone, if you have Pure White World Tendency. Come back when you have the weapon and show it to him, he will reward you with a Pure Greystone (This item is very hard to get, so make sure to do this!)
  • If you encounter him in Pure Black, he will be a Black Phantom and attack you with devastating fire magic. The best way to defeat him is to have a good shield with magic defense for melee users, and the miracle "anti-magic field" for other players. He has very low stamina so if you corner him you can get an advantage. He is also very succeptible to plague. Note that if you push him off the cliff, you can have troubles retreiving the drop: Talisman of Beasts (Unique weapon, make sure to get it)


Once you reach the bottom, some earth worms will appear. These enemies are easy for magicians, all you have to do is lock onto the head and shoot one spell (not fire) and the worm will die. For melee users, it could be best to just run through them, but if you must kill them try using a bow or crossbow, or a big sword with long range (Like the Penetrating Sword)

Proceed towards point G to enter the last area before the boss. You can skip to the last section of this page if you have come this way, as you are now in point G of Map 4

If you go towards point 1 of Map 1

You will see some carts with a shining orb coming towards you. These orbs explode when you get near them, so you have two options:

Run through the whole tunnel until you have cleared the third cart
Wait until the three carts have come to the center of the room, get close to activate them and run away.

Whatever your method, right before you reach the platform marked as point A, you will be attacked by a Fat Minister. You can take advantage of the pillar in front of him to have it block his magical attacks.

Now, once more, you have a choice.

  • You can go down using the lift marked as A by activating the handle in the middle, this will take you down to the Crystal Gecko nest. As the lift goes down, edge towards the right of the platform (as you are facing the handle) and peek down with the right stick to identify the location of the Geckos below. They will run towards their nest, but don`t pursue them too ferviently: There are two Black Phantoms waiting for you before the entrance to the nest. To kill the Black phantoms, use ranged magic whilst you backtrack towards the lift. Once in the wider area, you will have more space to maneuver and dodge attacks. Concentrate on killing one of them first, or they will overpower you. They both have low fire and magic defense, so you can attack with fire spells or apply turpentine/sticky white stuff to your weapon.

    After you defeat them, go towards the nest. The ideal method to get as many stones as possible is to use the Miracle Rage of God: to do this simply jump down to the middle of the nest and do the Miracle two times. The best Magic is the Firestorm spell, use same technique as above. If you are a melee user, you will likely get very few of the Geckos.

    When you are done, backtrack and head through the passage towards point B, but be careful of the floating shining orb: it will explode and kill you. Also beware of the pitfall marked in the map next to the Splinters of Hard and Clearstone. A pickaxe miner will ambush you as you proceed, so keep your shield up. You are now in point B of Map 2

 

  • You can continue forward towards a small passage with worm carcasses blocking the way. Use your weapon to destroy them and clear an opening, but proceed slowly, as a pickaxe miner will be ready to attack you. After you have defeated him, you will eventually get to the outsise, and you will see a worm enemy in front of you. These enemies are easy for magicians, all you have to do is lock onto the head and shoot one spell (not fire) and the worm will die. For melee users, it could be best to just ignore them, but if you must kill them try using a bow or crossbow, or a big sword with long range (Like the Penetrating Sword)

    Whatever you do, kill the Crystal Gecko here and then head towards the side with the Splinters of Hard and Sharpstone. One more worm will emerge. Take care of it and then look for the right spot next to his body to drop down onto a platform below. You are now entering map 2 through the black arrow, this is marked as point 1 in Map 2.


This area contains many enemies called Bearbugs. These annoying creatures have very high physical defense, so Magic is the best weapon against them. Fire magic, however, has little effect.

You should first carefully drop down the platforms and go towards Patches the Hyena. He will tell you about a trasure next to the Giant Bearbug marked as point 2 on Map 2. You can kill the Bearbug with patience, as it will not fight back, but make sure to run away as it dies, since it explodes and this can kill you. After you defeat it, talk to Patches again.

Even if you chose to ignore most of the enemies, you can still collect many items. The Crystal Gecko here, however is hard to kill, as he flees towards three earth worms, making it hard for you to follow. You can find the Dirty Man vendor here, he has Large Splinters for sale to stock up if you need. There is also the DARK HEATHER SHIELD+2 behind him.

Next you should walk towards exit C. Marked as point 3 in Map 2 is the area where a swarm of flying bearbugs will attack you. You can ignore them and rush forward. More earth worms will appear, keep running or the bearbugs will catch up with you.

You are now at point C of Map 3

These area is very confusing and has Giant Bearbugs that are hard to see and very strong, so be sure to have Soul Light spell to kill them. Use the map to guide your way, but overall your aim should be to:

  1. Stick to left wall until second intersection
  2. Turn right
  3. Stick to left wall until next intersection
  4. Turn Left and continue forward until point F


If you want to gather all the items, you should wear the Ring of Flame Resistance and a good Fire Defense armor, as the hot lava pool will take a lot of your health. You should first kill all the bearbugs and then cast Total Protection, then run and stop in one of the isles to eat some grass before you pick up the item

You are now at point F of Map 1

Simply drop down and kill the earth worms that appear, then continue towards point G.

You are now at poing G of Map 4

From point G, move forward and left. You will have to kill some earth worms to obtain the HANDS OF GOD (Unique weapon). Once that is done, walk towards the fog (green in map 4) and look for Blue Eye Stone markers to invite ally phantoms if you are alive. You will now fight the Demon Flamelurker.

Flamelurker

You should have

  • Ring of Flame resistance
  • Total Protection
  • High fire defense armor
  • Soul Light (this enemy has very low magic resistance)
  • Sticky White Stuff



It is best to have an allied blue phantom to distract him.

There are two areas that the Lurker does not enter easily, the first one is a carcass to the right to where you first entered, the second one another carcass to the left far side from where you entered.

If you use these locations as shields, he will get "stuck" and you can use your ranged magic to attack him. However it does not last long and you will have to change positions.

If you choose to attack in the open, ranged magic whilst rolling in a big circle in the whole arena is the option. For melee attacks, have your partner distract the Demon and attack him from behind, but beware of his explosion attacks.

After you defeat him, you will get the Red Hot Demon Soul. Do not consume it. You should now go to talk to Blacksmith Ed, and if you give him the Demon Soul he will be able to forge high quality weapons for you (using all stones, etc)

  • The debris on the left path will be cleared, beyond which you will find a unique Extra Large Sword, the Dragon Bone Smasher. Pure White World Tendency required.
    Note: If you kill the Dragon God with a Neutral World Tendency, you will have to go back to the Nexus, and then return to claim the Sword.

Full Flamelurker Archstone Walkthrough

After beating Flamelurker, you will be able to access the last area of Stonefang, where you will fight the demon Dragon God.

You will need

  • Ring of fire resistance
  • High fire defense armor
  • New Moon Grass
  • Total Protection
  • Strong melee weapon


After the First fog there is a long hallway with stairs going down. You can summon allies here, but it is not necessary. You should move forward until you reach the second fog, and then turn right as soon as you can when you see the Dragon.

You must now push towards the Dragon Restraining Device, which is at the end of the passage you are on. As you move forward, hit the Dragon`s claws or debris as appropriate to make your way. When you reach the shining balista, get close to it and activate it to hurt the Dragon.

Now you must go to the other side, so head down the stairs and start running. You will be caught in the flames as you have to clear Debris from your path, so fully heal yourself each time and proceed forward. Your objective is to get to the other Dragon Restraining Device.

It is an endurance battle, until you reach the other end and use the spear again. (you can take a second to kill the Crystal Gecko before you use the spear, it is safe in this platform).

Once you have used the second device, run down the way you came and go left towards the Dragon when you see a path. You should go to point 2 of the map, to the Dragon`s head, and use your strongest melee weapon with two hands and heavy hits. Do not get too close or he will burn you, and be careful not to fall.

Tower of Latria is a Location in Demon's Souls. Latria, land of the queens ivory tower.
An old man took revenge on the Queen by locking her family in a prison with inhuman guards. All that escapes the place are the prisoners' cries.

World Tendency Events

White World

  • 2F West, Lord Rydell can be rescued if you have the key from 3-2 (see below). The reward is a Dull Rat's Ring.
    • Unlocking his cell is not dependent on World Tendency, but getting the key from 3-2 is. If you unlock his empty cell during Pure Black World Tendency, he will stay inside until you talk to him, after this the World Tendency shifts back towards White.
    • Rescuing Rydell has no effect on his Black Phantom form. Remember that Latria's Archstone will be darker due to its position at the back of the screen, so suicide in Body Form one more time to ensure Pure Black when going for his BP form.
    • Drops nothing if killed, unless he's killed before he gives the Dull Rat's Ring.

Black World

  • Black Phantom Lord Rydell is standing outside of his cell on the landing. He drops a Phosphorescent Pole when killed. Pure Black World Tendency required.
    • He will appear whether you have freed him or not
  • Black Phantom Mind Flayer outside the door on 1F behind the Prisoner Horde enemy, towards Ballista
  • Black Phantom Mind Flayer in the room where the two warden's corridors come together at the exit door
  • Black Phantom Mind Flayer on the open path between the warden's corridor exit and the first tower

Full  Tower of Latria Walkthrough

The Tower of Latria is a laberinth of cells and keys, so be ready for a challenge.

To go through this level, you will have to get keys to open closed gates until you reach the boss. This means your will likely have to go in one direction and then backtrack after you have obtained the keys. You should see the map carefully, and notice the many dead ends and pitfalls (marked as blue lines in the map) that can kill you. It is hard to see because Latria is very dark, so walk slowly and watch your step.

As you enter the area, you should first be aware of the "Octopus Guards" that patrol the passages. These enemies can be very dangerous: they will attack you with a paralyzing spell, and then rush forward and deal great damage with a soul sucking spell. They also have the soul arrow ranged spell, which can be very bad if you magic defense is low.

To start you should wear the thief ring, and then carefully go left (giving your back to the archstone). Your objective is the set of keys of the 3rd Floor, which can be located on the map: they are proped up against walls so investigate the area marked.

As you walk, you will notice crazed prisoners locked up in cells. You should not open the cells unless there is an item in there that you want, or they will mob you and get on your way when you are trying to fight the Octopus Guards.

You will hear the Octopus approaching, they make a sound with their bells. The best way to deal with them is to have the "anti magic field" miracle, but I will assume you don`t have that yet. Ranged attacks work best. The Octopus have little magic resistance, so you can use ranged fire spells and kill them without giving them a chance to get close. You should use the pillars as cover if they are around the corner. Melee attacks are not a good idea, as they will likely paralize you. If you have very high vitality, however, you can take the hit and then counter after they have done their soulsucker.

Whatever way you deal with them, once you get the second set of keys, you can go back to the start point and open the locked door to go to the stairs. Once you are through the door, touch the first fog and go up to the 4th floor.

Your objective as you go through this floor is to get to the 4th Floor keys. The keys are in an area in the map where some crazed prisoners will attack you with poisoned knives, so make sure to carry some Lotus to heal yourself.

Once you have gotten the Keys, backtrack to the area that has the locked door and open it. You can use the outside passage to get to the other side of the 4th Floor. You will hear a singing voice, it is the Once Royal Mistress, who will act as your vendor for this part of Latria. You can talk to her and learn about the "Church Goddess" as well.

Once you have stocked up on whatever items you need, make your way to the stairways.

Go down the stairs and you are now in the 3rd Floor, and close by is point 3: You can see Sage Freke inside a cell. You cannot save him yet, so continue back to the stairs and look for a very narrow passage of stairs going down.

Sage Freke details:

  1. Continue through the level until you reach an area with a balista that shoots constantly. Walk towards the area where the arrows are falling, get very close, but don`t go into it: there is a body right at the edge of the balista`s reach area that has the jailor`s key, take it.
  2. Backtrack to floor 2.5 (The one with the too doors you could not open before, it looks like a passageway of sorts): now you can open those doors. There will be two Octopus magicians, take them out and continue along until you get to the back of the balista, and press circle to deactivate it from behing it.
  3. Now give your back to the machine, and proceed through the door into the tower to your right all the way up the stairs an on the beam up, until you reach a guy that says he means you "no harm". Kill him, and take the key that rests on the wall behind him.
  4. Now you can go back to almost the start, to the 3rd floor and rescue Freke.

This is a mid-level floor, and you do not yet have the keys to open the gates towards point E, so for now pick up the keys of the 1st Floor and go to the other side of the floor, and use the stairway down.

You are now on 2nd Floor. Keep walking. You will hear someone complaining as you approach, it is Rydell, who is dead but trapped inside a cell and will ask you to free him. If the world is Pure White Tendency, you will be able to get the items behind the debris on the opposite side of Rydell`s cell. If the world is Pure Black Tendency, Rydell will be a Black Phantom and attack you.

Rydell details:

Save Rydell

  1. World tendency must be black, neutral or pure white. Rydell is in a cell in the second floor.
  2. Go to 3-2, and do the level until you get to the first tower with worshipping slaves. (Basically, go straight, left up the stairs in the first big structure, left on the first walkway you see, and again up the stairs on the next tower). After you kill them, look for a very narrow set of stairs that circles up to the very top of that tower: the key is in a body there.
  3. Go back to the nexus and back to 3-1, Go to the 2nd floor and open Rydell`s cell. He will give you a dull rat`s ring. Saving him will unlock the locked door on 2nd Floor.


Kill Rydell

  1. World tendency must be Pure Black.
  2. Rydell will not be on his cell, he will be a Black Phantom. It is hard to kill him because it is so narrow, but if you do it, you will get the Phosphorescent Pole, which you need in order to get the Soldier`s trophy




Go down the stairs to get to the 1st Floor

 

Use the Keys that you got on Floor 2.5 to open this gate. When you go through, you should notice that there is a rather strange enemy close to the "Old Spice x3" item. This enemy will shoot very powerful soul arrows at you, and if you get close attack you with numerous arms. It is best to find something to block the soul arrow and take him off from a distance, popping in and out of cover.

Once he is defeated, you can loot the area and get the Crystal Gecko for some Splinters of Moonlightstone. Be careful with the deadly falls around!

Now go towards point H and go outside, walk around to get some items and don`t be scared to walk on the outer beams of the structure to get the MERCURY RAPIER +1

Go back inside, look for exit and walk forward until you are almost on the deadly range of the Ballista. You will find the Jailor`s key laying right before the arrows. Pick it up and go back to Floor 2.5.

Use the Jailor`s Keys to open the gates here and kill 2 Octopus Guards.

You will walk towards a tower and then see a spiral staircase. You can go all the way up and then through exit, to eventually find the SILVER CATALYST and a vendor. Once that is done, go back to ground level and exit the tower on the other side. You will not be behind the Ballista. Use the lever to stop the machine and then loot the bridge.

Now go to the other tower. Walk all the way to point L, go inside.You will see the keys to free Sage Freke in a wall behind the "Puppet Master". This guy claims to be harmless but if you do not kill him you cannot proceed to the next level, so kill him and go back to ground level to get ready for the boss.

You can now go to rescue Sage Freke or continue searching. Be careful of a Black Phantom that spawns in this area. She has a crossbow and is invisible, so keep your shield up to avoid a nasty surprise.

When you are ready, go through the fog.

Demon Fool`s Idol

You should have:

  • Total Protection
  • Ranged Magic Spell
  • Bow/Crossbow
  • Strong Melee Weapon
  • Magic defense ring
  • Full Moon Grass



When you first enter the church the Demon will ignore you. Use this time to kill all the worshippers to avoid them bothering you, then find refuge behind the pillars. To kill the Demon, you should first note that even if you kill her dopplegangers you do not get her health down, so you should first learn to recognize the real Demon.

The real one is the one that throws the "paralize" magic at you, whilst the others will use different things.

Ranged magic is the best bet to deplete her HP but do not equip the Magical Sharpness ring or you will take more damage than
necessary from each attack. Use the pillars to hide whilst you seek for the real one, then shoot a ranged magic at her. You can get 3 shots in before she goes away. Alternatively you can shoot one magic/arrow and then close in to get 1 or 2 melee blows.

After you finish her, to continue to the next level, you have to approach the altar. Some Gargoyles will pick you up and drop you at the top of the tower, next to the Archstone.

Once you are up near the Archstone you will get the Doll`s Demon Soul.

 

  • Note: The Unique weapon BABY`S NAIL is here behind the altar. To get it, you have to very carefully approach the altar from a side, but looking towards the wall. Move slowly towards the shining item, but always facing the outer walls, and you can then pick it up. Otherwise the gargoyles will get you.

World Tendency Events

White World

  • On top of the first tower where the first chain is released, a bridge will appear that gives access to the very top, where the Prison of Hope, 2F W Cell Key, that unlocks Rydell's cell, can be picked up. Pure White World Tendency required.
    Once unlocked, this bridge will remain there even if World Tendency changes later.

Black World

  • Two Black Phantom Giant Man Centipede at the swamp.
  • One Black Phantom Giant Man Centipede on bridge leading to second chain tower, just past the Crystal Lizard
  • A Primeval Demon is at a dead-end, accessed from the boardwalk; it is next to where the Ring of Disease Resistance is found
    • Note: The Primeval Demon shows up one World Tendency lighter than Pure Black and is likely to drop a Colorless Demon's Soul when killed.
  • Black World Tendency Events in Latria
    • In Latria it is impossible to go from 3-2 back to 3-1, without going by The Nexus. Most players will want to defeat both the NPC Black Phantom and the Primeval Demon in one go, to avoid achieving Black World Tendency more than once. It is therefore advisable to start from 3-1 and take out Black Phantom Lord Rydell first, then move into 3-2 to deal with the Primeval Demon.

In the start of this level you will face gargoyles that perch themselfs on top of pillars though out the start of thr level. they hit pretty strong, so use your shield to block their hits and counter thier strikes. or you can use magic/bows just lock on to them and keep away from them. the gargoyles drop unknown soul gems ranging from 400 to 1000 points per gem. so it's a good level to keep going back to, to get soul gems.

Once you get through the gargoyles you'll go up stairs tyo a ledge, wait there for the eleavator to come down. get off at the top to another set of stairs that lead to about 4 zombies praying to a fire touch. kill them in order to put out the touch, after the cut scene go down the stairs to the guy locked up in the cage. let him out and get in the cage. yes I said get in the cage. it will take you down to the next level.here there are lots of mercury stones around the area, so look every where, but watch for the scorpions and that wierd ball with arms thing that shoots rays at you. the scorpions will strike with thier tail, then they will split into just the head and jump and spit at you.

Once you get through them and go up the hill to go though the fog., becareful and watchful for the dark phatom octopus head on the stairs. along with ambushes at every turn. this will get you to the second tower and another cut scene. walk down the stairs and jump down over the ledge to get back to the start of the level. now instead of going up the stairs you will want to go to the right to the open door. watch out for the scorpion waiting for you. proceed to the right down the second staircase. becareful there are about four scorpions and two gargoyles.

Once down the stairs goto the right and kill about five scorpions and collect your prizes.then you will want to go back up the stairs, but instead of going right down the walk way keep going straight and follow the stairs up. there will be an dark phatom at the top of the stairs walking down toward you.there is fog don't go in. you can shoot one of two maneaters that are waiting for you. move toward the wall on the left as close to the fog as you can go and use your bow if you have a good one that is. using magic is best unless you have one hell of a weapon to use. once you get the first one to about 3/4 heatlh a second one will come for you.run up the stairs to the torch and hit and run around the torch or use magic is best. soul ray spell. Happy Hunting.

Full Maneater Archstone Walkthrough

1. The Maneater Archstone and your starting point for this level. If you've been through Stonefang then know this is a relatively short level as well, basically just consisting of the boss. In any case, grab the valuable Souls in front of you and begin your climb.

2. Plenty of small Facebugs dwell on the stairs here. However, the real threats are the two Black Phantom Mind Flayers that patrol the stairs. Unlike 3-2, the walls obscure any vision of them, so tread very carefully as you climb and be wary of footsteps. They also have considerably more HP than before, so be wary of that too. Use the same hit and run tactics as you did in 3-2 and you should be fine. To avoid death by soul arrow, you can run backwards since the staircase is curved and it won't hit you. Wait for them to turn around and go stabbed them in the back and rinse and repeat.

3. The final fog door, leading to the boss Old Monk. If you've witnessed a cutscene by this point and are playing online then you will be most likely facing another player (given that they didn't leave) Some players will let you kill them, however most will fight to the death as it is very satisfying to kill another player. A Crystal Gecko sits at the top of the stairs, just behind the second Mind Flayer.

Full  Shrine of Storms Walkthrough

The Shrine of Storms is a great place to grind as each skeleton you kill will give you around 300 souls. Your start point is the archstone, marked as point 1 in Map 1

Shrine of Storms Map

Map

The first time you come here, you should walk forward slowly, ready to lock on when the skeleton ahead comes into range. This enemies are very weak to fire and blunt attacks, so bring along a mace or equip appropriate magic. The enemy will roll towards you and hurt you with the roll, use ranged magic as it approaches. When it is close, you can block and evade, but you should pay attention to their patterns so that you can tempt them into slashing at you: after they attack, they have a couple of "open" seconds when they are vulnerable.

Marked as point 2 is the spawning point for Satsuki. He will only appear in Pure White or Pure Black world tendency.If the World Tendency is Pure Black, he will be a Black Phantom and attack you as soon as he sees you. He has low defense against Plague and low stamina, so you could overwhelm him easily. If the World Tendency is Pure White, he will talk to you and ask you to find the "Magic Sword Makoto" for him. The sword can be found in 4-2 (see this section for details). When you bring it back to him, you will be given an option to hand over the sword or not. Whichever you choose he will attack you, and if you win the sword will be yours.

As you continue forward you will see a set of stairs with a number of skeletons. The best approach is to lure them out one by one. When you have finished all the skeletons and get to the top of the stairs, you will be attacked by two archer skeletons from the top of the structure. You can pick up the items later, so ignore them for now and touch the first fog.

You should now walk left into the passway/tunnel directly under the two archer skeletons of earlier. As you go, look down for a square plate that shines slightly: this is a trap trigger! As soon as you step on it, arrows will be shot in your direction. To avoid being hit, as soon as you get to the plate you should turn and face the wall, as if you wanted to walk through it. Step into the plate and continue to push towards the wall until the last arrows fly by you.

When you reach the end, you will see an opening to go outside and a set of stairs to go up towards point G.

If you go outside, you will meet your first "Dual Katana Skeleton" or Black Skeleton. These enemies are incredibly strong, and they are also pretty fast. They can kill you with one hit, so avoid it for now if you are not over level 60. If you want to try it, it is best to have a protection spell and thief ring on, so you can approach until lock-on without him noticing you. You can then shoot some magic at him and run away towards the trap trigger as fast as you can, he will not follow you all the way, but instead walk back slowly to his original position. Repeat this until he is dead and pick up the CRESCENT FALCION +1 behind thim. This weapon will slowly regenerate your MP if you have it equipped.

Go up the stairs: you are now at point G of Map 2.

Items Found on Map 2 (total 2):

  • Renowned Hero's Soul 
  • Crescent Moon Grass x4  

When you get to the top, you will have to kill another skeleton and then face the two archer skeletons that attacked you earlier.

When you finish them off, go towards point H and down the stairs, to get the COPPER KEY marked in Map 1. When you reach the bottom, notice the power plate that will set off another trap. You should avoid stepping on it at all. Once you have the key, go back to the top and return to point G, going down the stairs again towards the place where you touched the first fog of this level.

  • Note: From point H, you can take a shortcut to the boss. Take off all your armor and roll in the direction of the arrow until you land on top of the opposite wall. Once you are there, you can walk to the edge and jump down towards the area that has the Regenerator`s Ring. If you do this, you will bypass most of the level.

You are now at point 3 of Map 1.

From here, you can see Sub-Demon Vanguard waiting ahead. He will not come to attack you, however a skeleton archer from your left might see you, so first walk towards the right of the area.

Wait until you see a flying manta come by, lock onto it, and use magic or a bow to kill it before you go any further. Remain alert to a thunder-like noise, that means that the manta is attacking you, so you should start rolling around if you value your life.

Once the manta is taken care of, concentrate your attention on Vanguard. You can take this Demon down without taken any damage if you simply attack him from a distance. If you chose to get close, you will have to avoid his clumsy attacks, but he is quite weak overall.

Behind Vanguard, there is an opening in the floor marked in the map as point B. Go down this way and refer to Map 2.

Walk forward and beware of the power plate that triggers a trap. You will then come to what seems like a dead end. marked as point 2 on Map 2. These walls will dissapear if you attack them, revealing skeletons ready to ambush you. Attack them as best you can and continue towards point 1 to free Graverobber Blige, who will act as a merchant in this world.

When you are done, you can go towards point F of Map 2, attack another wall to make it dissapear and kill another skeleton. You should then continue up the stairs (beware of skeleton`s ambush!) until you emerge in point A of Map 1.

Ignore the mantas flying in the distance and follow the narrow path until you reach a talking tree known as "the crow" in many game forums. The tree will ask you for "sparkly" (soul remains) and if you drop some on the ground it will give you something in return the next time you load the level.

After you are done with the tree, you should carefully peek down towards the location of the Chrystal Gecko. To get him, you can jump down and follow him as he escapes. Once you are done backtrack to point B of Map 1 to continue the level.

Go through the second fog of the level and up the stairs. Wear a thief ring. You will be attacked by flying mantas, so remain alert and ready to roll out of the way of their spears. You will see a skeleton and an archer skeleton ahead. Lure the first one out so you are not overwhelmed, then go to kill the archer. After you have done it, you can kill the Black Skeleton (Dual Katana) that guards the ADJUDICATOR`S SHIELD, which regenerates your health when equipped.

Before proceeding further into the level, check out the ladder marked as point E in Map 1 and Map 3 for some items.

Items Found in Map 3 (total: 7):

  • Late Moon Grass x3
  • Half Moon Grass x2  
  • Unknown Hero's Soul
  • Splinter of Cloudstone
  • Stone of Ephemeral Eyes
  • Graverobbers Ring
  • Renowned Hero's Soul

 

 

Go back down and continue around the structure and take notice of yet another power plate that triggers a trap. Use the wall-faceing method to avoid being killed, and drop down some natural steps. You are now in the top left area of Map 1.

To survive this section you will need to have a Thief Ring and fire magic equipped. You will be attacked by the flying mantas and the enemies waiting ahead (the Golden Skeletons).

These skeletons are very strong and have high physical defense. You should approach the skeletons carefuly and lure them to a wider area where you can roll out of their attacks without falling down the cliff. As they walk towards you, use your magical attacks to weaken them, but be ready to roll out of the way of their counters. Try to get behind them when they attack you, to deal some critical damage.

Carefully make your way to the third fog of the level. You are now in a roofless room with a set of stairs leading up to point D of Map 3 above.

Take all the items and investigate the area to the side to get to the Crystal Gecko and eventually the Regenerator`s Ring. Once you are done, come back to the room and trigger the trap leading to the next room carefuly so it does not get you.

You are now at point C of Maps 1 and 4

Items In Map 4 (Total: 3):

  • Half Moon Grass x3
  • Stone of Ephemeral Eyes
  • Legendary Soldiers Stone       

(Maps Used With Permission)

You will see a set of stairs going down towards the last fog, and a Black Skeleton (Dual Katana) guarding it. Kill this enemy with the same strategy as earlier: magic spell and run away, repeat. You can summon allies here if you want to.

*From Skinman* You can kill this Black Skeleton (Dual Katana) very easily with arrows (similar to killing the Red Dragon in 1-1) if you're a melee. Just shoot from the top of the stairs then run back out the door and wait a minute for him to walk back to his original spot. Do this over and over again with about 50-75 Arrows (depending on STR) and you kill him with little effort. This method does take a lot of time though. Using a crossbow might be more difficult because you can't zoom in but a couple of shots to figure out the aim should work.

Go through the fog to challenge

Demon Adjudicator

You will need:

  • Protection Spell
  • Ranged Magic (soul light is good)
  • Bow or crossbow

As you enter, go right and down, then do a U turn until you reach the areas marked as X in the map.

From here, you can lock onto the head of the Demon and fire your attacks.

It will atack you with its long tongue or with its massive weapon, but the attacks are predictable so as soon as you see them coming stop your spells and roll to evade.

If you are a melee user, you can easily defeat him by attacking the correct area. Drop to the ground and run up to his left side (on your right as you face him). Lock on and shift target until you're targeting the weapon buried in his left hip (NOT the weapon he is using), and simply keep rotating around him so you're always at his left hip. He swings in a wide right-to-left arc and telegraphs very, very heavily, so you can easily avoid all of his attacks. Just keep chipping away at the wound (you'll know you're hitting the wrong place if your weapons bounce, and the right place if you hear the normal injury sound) until he falls, then hack at his head. You should never be hit while doing this.

White World

  • In the room Patches kicked you down, the inaccessible corpse is now on the ground. You can pick up the Magic Sword "Makoto".

Black World

  • A Primeval Demon within the left staircase near the first reaper. There is a breakable archway on the second landing. After killing the Dual-Katana Skeleton, look for a pathway along the left side of the cliff to walk up. About half way along you should see it. A Crystal Lizard appears right before it.
    • Note: The Primeval Demon shows up one World Tendency lighter than Pure Black and is likely to drop a Colorless Demon's Soul when killed.
  • Two Black Phantom Gold Skeletons outside on cliffside after the second Reaper
  • One Black Phantom Dual-Katana Skeleton outside on cliffside after the second Reaper

Full Adjudicator Archstone Walkthrough

You will gain access to this area after defeating the Demon Adjudicator. This area has a particular good stop for grinding, as there are some transparent enemies that will give you 400 souls every time and respawn constantly without you having to backtrack to the Nexus.
 
There is a hidden area near the beginning of 4-2 with a strong enemy and the White Bow, one of the best bows in the game. It's in a secret passage on the stairways within the hall where Death is. Its midway up the stairwell, hit the wall, usually someone leaves a message by it so it should be easy to find. Behind the wall there is a very tough black katana skeleton, either kill him or avoid him, but the White Bow is at the end of the long cliff path to your left. Don't bother until your stats are high enough to use it first or you're risking death for nothing.

If you don't have many souls on you you can lure him into the main room then dash behind him and grab the bow. Run away! If you die it doesn't matter as you have the bow and can recover any souls (assuming you didn't die outside). Another option is to use Soul Remains on him; throw them while you have the black skeleton targeted and he'll focus on the Soul Remains, leaving you free to land a few unguarded attacks.

Full  Old Hero Archstone Walkthrough

There are two ways to take on this boss.

One of them is to ignore the Stormruler and use your regular magic/bow to slowly take out the Mantas from near the entrance point, and then attack the main Demon as he approaches. This is safer but will take more patience and finesse

The other option is to enter the boss area and ignore everything, running forward and then left towards the pillars and ruins. In the center near the Crystal Geckos, there is the "Stormruler": a sword that can "tear the sky". Take it and equip it, then target the many mantas and boss and use R1 to attack them from the ground. Taking out the Mantas first can help avoid damage, so concentrate on them, always rolling after each attack to avoid being hit by their projectiles.

There's a ruined building forward and along the right side of where you enter; you can hide behind it and avoid almost all of the Manta stingers, as well as the Storm King stinger volley. This is very useful because Stormruler's wind wave attack does go through the walls, so you can hide, use autotarget while peeking around the side, and kill the mantas without much danger.

Whichever you chose, whenever you see the boss coming, you should be extra careful to roll and evade his attacks, that are fatal. Cast total protection often, and counter as soon as you have avoided the attacks.

After you defeat the Demon, touch the archstone to receive the Storm Demon Soul and Pure Cloudstone. Do not consume the Soul yet, look at the Items sections for its uses.

  • Note: This area is the ideal place to find Chunks of Cloudstone, that you will need to upgrade your shield to the maximum. To frind the items, make sure to take out the Mantas whilst they are over land, so that you can get the drops.

World Tendency Events

White World

Between the Rats, and the first Giant Depraved One, there will be a ladder leading upwards on the face of the wall to the left. Pure White World Tendency required.

  • Once this ladder is unlocked, it will stay unlocked even if World Tendency changes later. The ladder might NOT appear if world is pure white then you shift it towards black before visiting 5-1. (I had pure white and killed BP Garl and then Selen and when I visited this area afterwards, no ladder, but I did go through the nexus in between each killing and again before coming for the spear)
  • Climb the ladder and watch out for a Giant Depraved One half way through.
  • Eventually the path leads to three Giant Depraved Ones guarding the Istarelle Spear.

Black World

  • A Black Phantom Flame Pole wielding Depraved One is just before the first fog-gate
  • Black Phantom Knife wielding Depraved One is on the last suspension bridge before the boss area

Full  Dirty Colossus Archstone Walkthrough

When you enter the area, you should see three Depraved Ones that are too pre-occupied to bother with attacking you. Kill them and proceed to the right cliff, where there are several more Depraved Ones and a short wooden walkway. You will have to kill them all because they will eventually turn on you when you Maiden Astraea. Move to the edge of the walkway. From this safe point,

(1) you can shoot arrows at Maiden Astraea without any fear of retaliation. This is the easiest way to kill her, assuming that you can out damage her healing, she will die.

After Astrea dies,  Garl Vinland will be pacified will stand with his head lowered, unless you attack him he won't bother attacking you.

You can either fight him, or just load your current game and he will be dead. His armor and shield will be available at his spawning point.

(2) If you kill Garl Vinland first, you can casually walk up to Maiden Astraea and talk to her. She then commits suicide, telling you that she can no longer defend herself and that you can have your precious Demon's Soul. But if you have attacked her instead, she will attack you with the God's Wrath and try to guilt you for attacking her.

Notes

If you defeated Maiden Astraea on Pure White World Tendency, you can go back to Dirty Colossus Archstone and fight Black Phantom Garl Vinland, who then drops the weapon, Bramd after defeating Black Phantom Garl Vinland. Also note that if you left Garl Vinland alive, Black Phantom Garl will be in the way of his drops after a reload or revisit.

Full  Below The Nexus Walkthrough

Once you defeat all the world bosses, a cut-scene will start and the middle seal in the Nexus opens up. After this point you can no longer upgrade your Soul Level by talking to the The Maiden in Black..

You may still be able to enter any world and farm souls or items, upgrade items and do whatever you want without finishing the game. When you do talk to the The Maiden in Black, she will take you to the end zone.

Here then is the final boss fight against King Allant, who appears to be the captive, deformed, and despondent form of the true King Allant. Whether you feel pity for him or not, it should be an easy fight to win

King Allant in this form has moderate HP and no particular weaknesses. He has only one attack, a short-range ram attack that deals moderate physical damage; this attack grants him hyper armor, so should the player's HP be below ~30%, it would be advisable to carefully watch King Allant's movements while attacking in melee range. He also is incapable of moving faster than walking pace, rendering him completely defenseless against ranged attacks or melee weapons with a long reach (e.g. a Large Sword or a Spear. Once King Allant is dead, the player may either exit the Old One's innards or kill the Maiden in Black; either option ends the current playthrough, triggering the "good" and "bad" ending respectively.

Notes

Before you complete your first playthrough, be sure to upgrade and collect as many souls as you can to level up. Because once you finish the game the first time, the next playthrough going to be a-lot more difficult than the first playthrough. There are a number of things to consider before progressing to your next game cycle. Information can be found on the New Game + wiki page.
 
Be sure you don't miss the  Soulbrandt after he dies. If you have aquired Demonbrandt, then this is your last chance to make the Northern Regalia before defeating Flamelurker again in NG+. Naturally to do this requires a Shard of Archstone or your Nexial Binding to warp back, as the rear gate is closed after the Allant fight, and walking (but not warping) after the Maiden's speech will end NG. This is the very last chance you have before beginning NG+

After you do finish the game you automatically start your New Game+. Keep in mind that you still can't upgrade your Soul Level until you beat level 1-1 again. So, you will have to carry all your souls earned defeating the last boss of this play-through, plus the souls from the end game, plus the NG+ run through level Boletarian Palace and Phalanx, before you can spend them on levels. Alternately, spend your souls on merchant items before triggering the end.

If you have 300,000 souls and you're starting a New Game+, try not to feel too bad when you die twice in succession and lose all your souls. You should consider playing Boletarian Palace in NG+ in Offline Mode, to prevent Black Phantom attacks, which risk losing you all those precious souls before you can spend them.
