Ash Cemetery Item Locations

After you fight the first enemy, turn right and go back. The path leads to a Soul of a Deserted Corpse. When you reach the dead body with the Ashen Estus Flask, go left into the hills. There’s a crystal lizard up there, which drops a Titanite Scale when you kill it. There’s also a Soul of an Unknown Traveler next to a gravestone nearby.

You’ll reach the first bonfire after you get to the cliff. If you take the road to the right, all the way down, you’ll find a Firebomb.

Iudex Gundyr Boss Fight

When you reach the boss fight area, you’ll see a statue in the middle. Pull the sword out of it and the battle will start. Gundyr fights with a polearm, so he can be parried without too much trouble. Dodge under his swings and attack him from the sides, if you don’t want to parry.


After half of his health is gone, he’ll transform into a monster. Spam attacks while he’s transforming – he won’t be able to retaliate. Stay away from his monster hand.

After you kill him, he’ll drop a Coiled Sword, which you’ll use at Firelink Shrine.
