Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 417

Once Gravelord Nito is dead and you're back at Firelink Shrine, run back the stairs towards the elevator.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 418
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 418

You might have to pull the lever to make the elevator come up.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 419
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 419

Once down, go into the second tower and towards the Valley of Drakes.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 420
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 420

Cross it and go through the tunnel.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 421
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 421

Go back the extensively big amounts of ladders towards the elevator.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 422
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 422

Then go down the elevator once again and rest at the sewer bonfire as before.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 423
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 423

Once rested, run back through the swamp water and back to where we fought the giant spider boss.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 424
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 424

Once in the bell room, run down the stairs to the right.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 425
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 425

Go up to this wall and hit it to reveal a hidden passage.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 426
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 426

Run up and talk to this NPC. Press "Yes" when prompted.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 427
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 427

Rest at the bonfire and then run back, take a right.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 428
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 428

You'll come across a massive underground cavern with lava and spiderweb along with another bonfire.

Go down the mountain and take a right.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 429
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 429

Run down the long wall section and then take a left and go through the fog gate

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 430
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 430

Go ahead and you'll see a gigantic tentacle-ridden lava monster seemingly standing there, doing nothing in the midst of your presence.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 431
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 431

Run ahead and take the items off the altar..

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 432
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 432

This will aggro the boss, starting one of the most potentially difficult "legit" battles in the game with massive aoe spam, huge ranged attacks and overall massive health-pools.

To avoid this, run back to the fog gate.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 433
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 433

The boss will eventually follow you and then run out of standing space.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 434
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 434

Instead, he will jump onto where you are, hanging onto the lava ledge helplessly.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 435
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 435

Attack the tentacle that's impaled into the ground next to the fog gate to instantly kill the boss by making it fall down.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 436
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 436

Once dead, most of the map's lava will harden, creating new passages for you.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 437
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 437

Go down the mountain and run in this direction.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 438
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 438

There will be a Capra demon waiting for you there. I recommend killing it as It can chase you very fast and far.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 439
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 439

Once It's dead (or If you decided to run), go onto the long, slim path leading downwards.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 440
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 440

This place is infested with very tedious, strong and overall difficult big mobs that give little to no reward when killed. I recommend taking off all your gear to increase runspeed and simply dash through them.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 441
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 441

Be sure to have some HP before jumping off this ledge here or take the stairs down to the left.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 442
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 442

Continue dashing down the stairs.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 443
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 443

Run past the Taurus Demon..

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 444
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 444

And enter the fog gate.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 445
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 445

Here, you'll meet another boss, very much akin to the Asylum Demon, but a bit more fearsome.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 446
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 446

He will have all the standard movesets along with a new, highly damaging but slow AoE.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 447
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 447

Make him jump up against a wall and then wither away at him, taking heed of when he flies up and AoE's.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 448
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 448

When dead, move on forward.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 449
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 449

Go down the stairs ahead.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 450
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 450

Rest at the bonfire and go down to the next fog gate, taking care of running on the roots as they are rather slippery.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 451
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 451

Yet another boss will come smashing down into the lava. This one can be VERY annoying and difficult to defeat If you don't know exactly what to do as a melee.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 452
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 452

Jump across to this pointy platform, taking high care of avoiding the devastatingly damaging lava and run ahead.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 453
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 453

Make another jump onto the next platform..

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 454
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 454

Equip the heaviest gear & shields you have and wait for him to come to you.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 455
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 455

He will start to poke you a couple of times, extending his long arm/tentacle but It's easily blocked so simply stand your ground as he'll eventually give up standing out in the lava and jump onto the platform.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 456
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 456

Once he is on the platform, start to swing away at his legs while standing beneath him or just to the side of his legs.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 457
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 457

At this point, It will be fairly straight-forward as only two things he can do can damage you at this point. Occassionally, he will jump up, if this happens, run far away from where he jumped and block. The other event will be that he'll start trampling around with his feet.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 458
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 458

If this starts to happen all the time, back off a bit and make him turn around.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 459
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 459

Keep this up and he will eventually die, dropping a Orange Charred Ring. This item is essential to proceeding onto the next parts so equip it right away.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 460
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 460

Once the ring is on, you'll be almost immune to Lava damage so run to where the boss jumped down.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 461
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 461

And proceed into a small cave opening.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 462
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 462

Rest at the bonfire and run on ahead onto the tree root.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 463
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 463

Once at the end of it, take a right into the lava and run towards the large structure.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 464
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 464

Do your best to avoid the large pairs of walking legs as they are not worth the trouble.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 465
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 465

Run around the structure and then up this root.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 466
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 466

Take the item upstairs and then jump down.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 467
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 467

Run up ahead behind the building and go up this root.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 468
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 468

You will come to a pair of ruins with fire breathing floating statues. Avoid them and run ahead.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 469
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 469

Up ahead you'll come across a rather dangerous spellcaster. Backstabs are easily performed on him/her to both do massive damage, become immune and interrupt spells. When dealt with, go through the fog gate.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 470
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 470

When past the fog gate, slide down the large path.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 471
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 471

This is the Bed of Chaos boss. It is another notoriously hard boss and probably the most hated one due to the artifical difficulty.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 472
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 472

Quickly dash to the right of the boss and prepare to be repeatedly swept with large wooden arms. Having a heavy shield here can be golden.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 473
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 473

Once you reach the large glowing bubble, roll through the numerous roots..

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 474
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 474

And attack this glowing wood pillar.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 475
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 475

Doing this will damage the boss and cause a large flaming tentacle to appear from It's back.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 476
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 476

After that, almost all of the ground in the room will start to collapse as you go close to it, making it significantly harder.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 477
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 477

Have your wits about you as you dodge the boss attacks and probe the floor to see what's safe and what Isn't.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 478
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 478

Aggro the red tentacle to attack you then make a dash for the left orb.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 479
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 479

More floor will collapse as you get closer so don't stop running for anything.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 480
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 480

Once in the orb, roll to the other glowing root and destroy it.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 481
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 481

This will make the boss fully enraged and destroy even more of the flooring. I recommend just suiciding at this point as the boss does not reset at death.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 482
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 482

Once both orbs are destroyed, start to make attempts to run in the middle of the boss.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 483
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 483

More floor will collapse and reveal only a single, twisted root for you to stand on. Carefully align yourself and run jump down onto it.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 484
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 484

Roll through the tons of roots and be wary of the glowing fire spots on the ground. They can still erupt and kill you.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 485
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 485

Once all the way in, the true boss will reveal itself to be nothing more but an overgrown larvae. Kill it.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 486
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 486

A bonfire will appear next to it. Rest, save 20000 souls and warp to Undead Parish.
