Hello! Took a bit, but I'm back with the V2 of the NPC Side Quest Guide. I've updated all the quests with more accurate info than was available during the writing of V1, as well as took the requests to make the list chronological instead of character based to heart. This also includes locations to all Tomes, Scrolls, Coals, Estus Shards, Undead Bone Shards, and Gestures. There will be 14 posts, please don’t post until all 14 have been added! Thank you and enjoy.

Firelink Shrine
- Talk to Fire Keeper

- Talk to Shrine Handmaid

- Talk to Hawkwood (Receive Collapse Gesture)

- Talk to Blacksmith Andre (Receive Hurrah! Gesture)

High Wall of Lothric
- Free Greirat below the Tower on the Wall bonfire with the Cell Key, which is found at the bottom of the building that is past the same bonfire. Talk to him and agreed to give the Blue Tearstone Ring to Loretta. He will then return to Firelink Shrine.

- Andre Progress: Grab Estus Shard on an altar in the room where you get the Cell Key.

- After lighting the Tower on the Wall bonfire, return to Firelink Shrine and talk to Leonhard, who will give you 5 Cracked Red-Eye Orbs. He’ll be by Prince Lothric’s throne, if he isn’t at this point, try killing Vordt and check again.

- Talk to Emma, who is found the opposite direction of where Vordt is located, to receive the Way of Blue covenant and the Small Lothric Banner, which allows you to access the Undead Settlement.

Undead Settlement
- Find Yoel below the Foot of the High Wall bonfire amongst several other Pilgrims. Talk to him and agree to his request and he’ll head to Firelink Shrine.

- Yoel Progress: Head back to Firelink Shrine and talk to Yoel (Receive Beckon Gesture). If you want to pursue the Usurpation of Fire ending, follow next step.

- Yoel Progress: Accept Yoel’s offer to Draw Out True Strength. You’ll gain a free level, but also gain a Dark Sigil, which will start your Hollowing clock. Each time you die from here on out, you’ll gain 1 Hollowing and become more and more Hollow, which also affects your appearance. Yoel will offer 4 more Draw Out True Strengths at Hollowing Level 2, 6, 12, and 20. Each additional Dark Sigil acts as…Double XP for your Hollowing Level, so it shouldn’t take long to all 5 Dark Sigils (Just throw yourself off the cliff of Firelink Shrine over and over). If you do not do this step before reaching the Catacombs of Carthus, Yoel will automatically expire and you’ll lose your chance at the Usurpation of Fire Ending.

- If you get all 5 Dark Sigils and refresh the world, Yoel will be dead and Yuria will be located near his dead body. Talk to her (Receive Dignified Bow Gesture) and buy the Londor Braille Divine Tome. You can give it to Irina when you get her if you want, but note that buying any of the spells it offers will lead to her bad ending. Otherwise, hang onto it until you find Karla later in the game.

- Greirat Progress: To find Loretta’s Bone in Undead Settlement, spawn at the Undead Settlement bonfire and continue into the first house. Walk out onto the balcony and you’ll see a hanging body you can cut down, which contains Loretta’s Bone. Return to Firelink Shrine and give Greirat the item and he’ll state you can keep the Blue Tearstone Ring.

- Andre Progress: Grab Estus Shard by the burning tree with worshipping undead. This is to the left of the Undead Settlement Bonfire, past the house.

- You can find the Warriors of Sunlight covenant in a hidden room in the building after the congregation in front of the tree. There will be a hole in the floor that you can drop into. Room also has a Estus Soup for reference.

- You can find the Mound-Makers covenant by climbing into the cage of the saw wielding enemy with an empty cage on his back, across the bridge and over the house from the Undead Settlement bonfire. You can only do this before the Curse-rotted Greatwood has been slain or else Holy Knight Hodrick will die from the floor breaking during the boss fight. If this does occur, you can acquire the covenant later through Sirris’ side quest.

- Find Cornyx in the Undead Settlement above the Cliff Underside bonfire, which can be gotten by dropping to a ledge below the bridge that is right in front of the building that has 3 firebomb throwing undead on top of it. From the bonfire, get to the top of the building and kill the undead. You’ll find a cage on the balcony that contains Cornyx. Agree to let him go to Firelink Shrine and he’ll teleport there.

- Return to Firelink Shrine and talk with Cornyx (Receive Welcome Gesture and Pyromancy Flame). Also interact with Greirat, who should be taking the news of Loretta’s death not so well (Receive Curl Up Gesture).

- Find Irina and Eygon in front of the tower that can be found a little after the Cliff Underside bonfire, but you’ll be unable to reach Irina until you have the Mortician's Ashes.

- Shrine Handmaid Progress: Grab the Mortician’s Ashes at the graveyard with the falling spears, just ahead of the Dilapidated Bridge bonfire. If the spears are too much for you, grab a White Branch from the tree in the same graveyard and head to the tower to become friends with the Giant.

- Firelink Shrine Bonfire Progress: Grab the Undead Bone Shard to the right of the White tree on a platform you can jump to with a dead body.

- Return to Firelink Shrine and purchase the Grave Key, which opens the locked door in the sewer area with the rats next to the Dilapidated Bridge bonfire in Undead Settlement. Upon talking to Irina, she’ll teleport to Firelink Shrine if you allow her.

- Return to Firelink Shrine and talk to Irina (Receive Prayer Gesture).

- Find Siegward, who is inside the Tower near Irina and Eygon. He’ll be taking the elevator down and question the mechanics of the thing. Get on the elevator and you’ll go to the basement which has a Outrider Knight and the entrance to Road of Sacrifices. Kill the Outrider Knight and rest at the bonfire nearby. If you die, that works too. Return to the Tower entrance and take the lift up to the actual top of the Tower (If you keep going to the basement, hit the switch on the elevator while at the main entrance and then quickly jump off to reveal the lift that takes you up). Roll off at the mid-way point to land on a wooden platform. Head outside and speak to Siegward again. Run down and begin fighting the Fire Demon, Siegward will eventually come and help. After killing the Fire Demon, speak to Siegward three times (Receive Siegbrau, Toast Gesture, and Rest Gesture).

- Kill the Curse-rotted Greenwood to get the Transposing Kiln, which you can give to Ludleth of Courtland back at Firelink Shrine to turn boss souls into special weapons and items.

- Leonhard Progress: Leonhard should be at Firelink Shrine by this point once again. If he isn’t, continue on until you get a Pale Tongue and he should appear. He’ll give you a Lift-Chamber Key that you can use on a door below the Tower on the Wall bonfire of High Wall of Lothric. It’ll lead to a Darkwraith that upon death will drop a Red Eye Orb.

- Leonhard Progress: Return to Firelink Shrine and talk to Leonhard (Receive Applause Gesture).

- Hawkwood Progress: Talk to Hawkwood after killing the Curse-rotted Greatwood (Receive Heavy Gem). If he doesn’t give you anything, come back to him after killing the Crystal Sage.

Road of Sacrifices
- Greirat Progress: Around this time or before, you can now send Greirat to pillage Undead Settlement. After you depart Firelink Shrine after agreeing to send him out, he’ll be missing until you kill a boss.

- Irina Progress: You can find the Braille Divine Tome of Carim below the bridge right before the Halfway Fortress bonfire. Give it to her at Firelink Shrine and buy all the spells it offers if you want her to become a Fire Keeper later in the game.

- Talk to Anri and Horace at the Halfway Fortress bonfire. Horace will give you the Blue Sentinels covenant when spoken to. Make sure to deplete Anri’s dialogue before continuing on.

- Cornyx Progress: In the swamp area with the two giant enemy crabs, the Great Swamp Pyromancy Tome will be in an area of the swamp that causes you to fat roll.

- Kill Yellowfinger Heysel, who will invade your world if your are embered around the area where the two giant crabs are.

- Andre Progress: At the Halfway Fortress bonfire in Road of Sacrifices, head out and drop down from the ledges on the right side, keep going straight along the right wall and enter a doorway in the end. Turn left and you will see a Black Knight guarding a few bodies, the body at the end of the hall holds the Farron Coal, which grants you Heavy, Sharp & Poison Infusions.

- Andre Progress: Grab the Estus Shard on the side of the ruins near the Crucifixion Woods bonfire. It will be near a fire that has two Lycanthropes.

- Enter the ruins near the Crucifixion Woods bonfire, head up the stairs, cross the bridge, and you’ll notice an area to the left right after getting off the bridge that’ll lead you to the upper area of the ruins that contains Orbeck. Talk to him and he’ll agree to teach you in sorceries only if you have at least a 10 in Intelligence. You’ll also make him a promise to give him scrolls to learn more spells, you MUST give him a scroll before defeating the Abyss Watchers or else he will leave.

- Yuria Progress: If you have Yuria at your Firelink Shrine, you can talk to her to receive a mission to kill Orbeck. I wouldn’t recommend doing this, but you’ll get the Morion Blade if you do. I’m not sure if this is time sensitive or not, but if you want all of what Orbeck has to offer, wait on this.

Cathedral of the Deep
- Talk to Sirris at Firelink Shrine to begin her quest line.

- Shrine Handmaid Progress: Near the first bonfire behind a hostile NPC are the Paladin’s Ashes.

- Andre Progress: Grab the Estus Shard right outside the Cleansing Chapel bonfire where enemies are praying.

- Irina/Karla Progress: The Deep Braille Divine Tome can be found on a mimic chest. Remember, giving this to Irina and buying any of the spells it unlocks will lock you into the bad ending of her quest. I recommend saving this for Karla, unless you really want some of the spells.

- Firelink Shrine Bonfire Progress: Grab the Undead Bone Shard near a white tree that the Giant throws spears around, on the roof area of the Cathedral after navigating the graveyard and crossing a bridge.

- Continue through the Cathedral of the Deep until you have made it to the fog door before the Deacons of the Deep boss fight. Head to the nearby lift to activate the final shortcut of the level (Opening the large blue double doors that lead out to the Cathedral’s roof).

- If you leave the Cathedral completely (Go to Firelink Shrine and come back) and then head back into the Cathedral through the large blue double doors you just opened, you may notice that a new bridge has been activated and Siegward is standing next to them. Talk to him and then cross the bridge to trigger a cutscene where it is revealed it was really Patches. Depending on if you killed the Giants or not, you’ll either have to fight one or nothing happens.

- Patches Progress: From here, head out to the 2nd shortcut back to the Cleansing Chapel bonfire and use the lift to get to a crossbow undead’s tower. Kill him and move towards the edge of the tower, but don’t drop down. Instead, look to see that you can move towards the left and find a ladder. Ascend the ladder and continue up the roof to eventually reach the rafters of the Cathedral. You’ll now be able to drop down to the other side of the bridge that Patches activated. Patches will be waiting here and pretend to not be responsible for what just happened. Tell him “You know who I am” (Receive Prostration Gesture). You can then buy Siegward’s Armor Set from him.

- Leonhard Progress: Before leaving this area, continue on up the nearby stairs and you’ll eventually find yourself at the Rosaria’s Chamber bonfire. Speak with Rosaria to obtain the Rosaria’s Fingers covenant. Do not do anything further with this covenant if you intend to do Sirris’ quest line. Don’t give Rosaria any Pale Tongues and don’t equip the Rosaria’s Fingers covenant item. We'll continue this side quest closer to the end of the game.

- Patches Progress: If Patches didn’t spawn at the Cathedral, return to Firelink Shrine and purchase the Tower Key if you haven’t already and head into the Tower behind Firelink Shrine now. As you ascend the lift to the top, you’ll hear a door shut behind you. Grab the Fire Keeper’s Soul at the top and then come back down to encounter Patches. He has locked the door and you’ll need to drop down from the bridge onto coffins to escape.

- Andre Progress: Head back to the Tower and get to the bridge that overlooks Firelink Shrine. Drop down onto the roof and move around the roof until you find some windows you can go through. A Estus Shard will be on the rafters.

- While on the roof, you can talk to Snuggly the Crow. Trading him three items will get you the Call Over Gesture.

- Fire Keeper Progress: With the Fire Keeper’s Soul, you can heal Dark Sigils that you have in order to completely get rid of your Hollowing Level. If you are following Yoel/Yuria’s quest line, however, don’t do this until the post game or you’ll end up angering Yoel/Yuria.

- Patches Progress: Refresh Firelink Shrine and head to the upper right to find Patches now located there. He’ll ask for forgiveness, refuse (Receive Prostration Gesture and Rusted Gold Coin). You can then buy Siegward’s Armor Set from him. Leaving Firelink Shrine and returning will sometimes allow Patches to be in his squatting position. Interact with him (Receive Patches Squat Gesture).

- Siegward Progress: If you can’t buy Siegward’s Armor Set yet, head to the Cleansing Chapel and check the well at the entrance, where Siegward should be stuck in. After speaking to him, return to whatever location Patches is at for you and buy the armor.

- Siegward Progress: Return to the well Siegward is in and drop the armor it to him (Receive Rejoice Gesture).

Farron Keep
- Andre Progress: From the first bonfire of Farron Keep, stay to the left side until you reach a small structure guarded by a darkwraith. The Sage's Coal is in a body inside this structure, which grants you Crystal, Blessed & Deep Infusions.

- Andre Progress: Grab the Estus Shard as you come into the area from Road of Sacrifices, towards the left. The shard will be visible against a wall.

- Orbeck Progress: Spawn at the Keep Ruins bonfire and go out towards the Wolf Gate and turn left. Follow the wall and you’ll eventually find the Sage’s Scroll.

- Orbeck Progress: From the first bonfire, head out and go towards the right where you’ll start to encounter basilisks. There will be a cave in this area that will contain a chest with the Golden Scroll inside. Make sure to give these scrolls to him before beating the Abyss Watchers or he’ll leave forever.

- Firelink Shrine Bonfire Progress: Grab the Undead Bone Shard on the bottom of the tower to the right of the Wolf Gate with the three flames that you have to light. It is surrounded by a bunch of slugs.

- Anri Progress: Return to Firelink Shrine to find Anri and Horace left of the thrones. You can speak to them for some additional dialogue.

- Climb the giant ladder near the Keep Ruins bonfire to find the Old Wolf of Farron. Interact with him for the Watchdogs of Farron covenant (Receive Legion Etiquette Gesture).

- Shrine Handmaid Progress: In this room, you’ll see a dead body with something on it. Head out to the stairs and slash a wall once you get up them to reveal a illusory wall that leads to the body to get Dreamchaser’s Ashes.

- Sirris Progress: Return to Firelink Shrine and after giving the Dreamchaser’s Ashes to the Shrine Handmaid, refresh the world with a bonfire. Sirris will once again be there. Talk to her. (Receive Darkmoon Loyalty Gesture).

- Yellowfinger Heysel Progess: You can summon her in Farron Keep right after the Keep Ruins bonfire for the Abyss Watchers fight if you killed her in Road of Sacrifices, but you’ll need to have given a Pale Tongue to Rosaria, which will block you out of Sirris’ quest line, so I recommend saving this part for another playthrough. You’ll gain the Proper Bow Gesture after her summon.

- Black Hand Gotthard can be summoned for the Abyss Watchers fight and will grant you the By My Sword Gesture upon summon.

- Yuria Progress: If you are doing the Yoel/Yuria side quest, you’ll also be able to summon the Londor Pale Shade for the Abyss Watchers fight and gain the Duel Bow Gesture.

Catacombs of Carthus
- Hawkwood Progress: Return to Firelink Shrine and talk with Hawkwood (Receive Farron Ring). If Hawkwood isn’t in the Shrine, head outside to the grave that normally has a undead dog by it and he may be there.

- Hawkwood Progress: Refresh the world and head out to the grave once again and Hawkwood’s Shield will be resting on the grave. If this doesn’t happen, try again later.

- Cornyx Progress: About halfway across the first bridge of Catacombs of Carthus, you’ll notice a platform you can drop down to on the left side. Do so and you’ll find the Carthus Pyromancy Tome in that area.

- Anri Progress: Before heading down the giant staircase that a skeleton ball will eventually begin to roll up and down, there will be a hallway to the left you can take. Head down this way and you’ll eventually run into Anri, who claims she is looking for Horace. Exhaust her dialogue.

- Firelink Shrine Bonfire Progress: Once arriving at the bottom of the giant staircase, you’ll notice a skeleton with a hat on its head. Kill it and the next time the skeleton ball hits the bottom gate, it’ll explode and reveal a Undead Bone Shard.

- Shrine Handmaid Progress: After finding the Catacombs of Carthus bonfire, head down the stairs that the 2nd skeleton ball is going up and down and then head up some other stairs across the way. Once you’re at the top of this new area, head to the left and you’ll fine the Grave Warden’s Ashes.

- Anri Progress: Once you make it to the wooden bridge, you’ll see Anri above and to the right of it. She’ll once again ask if you have found Horace. You haven’t yet, but we’re about to. Head to the other side of the bridge and slash at it to cut it down and you can then use it as a ladder to descend into the Smouldering Lake.

- Karla Progress: Yes, you don’t have Karla yet, but after beating Wolnir, you’ll obtain the Grave Warden Pyromancy Tome. Cornyx can’t read this Pyromancy Tome, so you’ll have to wait until you find Karla to turn it in.

Smouldering Lake
- Firelink Shrine Bonfire Progress: When heading towards the Old Demon King fog door, a Carthus Sandworm will appear out of the ground. It may be a difficult fight with the ballista also active or you can use the ballista to your advantage to deal extra damage to the worm. Either way, upon killing it you’ll gain a Undead Bone Shard.

- Cornyx Progress: While fighting the Old Demon King, you can summon the NPC phantom Great Swamp Cuculus. Defeat the Old Demon King with this NPC surviving and go back to the cage in Undead Settlement you found Cornyx in (Receive Cornyx’s Armor Set and Spotted Whip).

- Head into the area where the Demon Ruins bonfire is as this’ll be where the bulk of the main items for this area are.

- Firelink Shrine Bonfire Progress: The first enemies you encounter in the Demon Ruins are some Demon Clerics. You’ll be on a top floor and see stairs nearby. Head down them and then move towards the left where there will be more Demon Clerics. Behind this group is another Undead Bone Shard.

- Andre Progress: Once you locate the Old King’s Antechamber bonfire in this area, there will be a illusory wall in the same room. Activate it and then move down the hallway that has loads of Writhing Rotten Flesh enemies on the ceiling and grab the Estus Shard on a body at the end.

- Cornyx Progress: In a room following the Old King’s Antechamber, you’ll find the Izalith Pyromancy Tome on the ground.

- Karla Progress: Once again, you don’t have Karla yet, but you can find the last Pyromancy Tome that she can read. From the Old King’s Antechamber bonfire, hit the illusory wall in the room and head back out to the large room with the Demon Clerics. There is a corridor out of this room where you’ll see the tome, but there will be a large hole that leads to a giant rat. Head down the hole, kill the rat, head straight, take a left, take another left, and in this room there will be another illusory wall that leads to the Quelana Pyromancy Tome.

- Further into the Demon Ruins, you’ll come to a point where there are several basilisks and you’ll see some stairs. Instead of going up the stairs, take a left when you get to them and you’ll encounter Knight Slayer Tsorig. Defeating him will gain you the My Thanks! Gesture.

- Anri Progress: After shutting off the ballista, you’ll notice some cliffs that you can drop onto that will eventually lead you back to the lake. You’ll also land right in front of a cave you haven’t explored (You can also get here just by running to the right from the Abandoned Tomb bonfire). Head inside and you’ll find Horace, who has succumbed to his Dark Sigils and become hostile. Kill him and he’ll drop the Llewellyn Shield. The Shrine Handmaid will also now sell Horace’s Executioner’s Armor Set.

- Anri Progress: Get back to the wooden bridge that allowed you to access the Smouldering Lake and speak if Anri to the upper right of it. Tell her of the Smouldering Lake and she’ll give you the Ring of the Evil Eye. If she isn’t here for you, you’ll have to wait until the next area to find her.

Irithyll of the Boreal Valley
- Sirris Progress: When first arriving in Irthyll, you’ll battle one of Sulyvahn’s Beasts and then move through a force field to the Central Irithyll bonfire. Refresh the world and return to the middle of the bridge and Sirris’ summon sign should be there if you’ve been following her quest. Activate it and you’ll enter her world and have to fight Creighton the Wanderer. She’ll thank you and give you a Blessed Mail Breaker for the troubles.

- Anri Progress: This is the major dividing point in Anri’s story. From here on out, if you want to follow her quest line to its conclusion, follow Anri A. If you want the Usurpation of Fire ending, follow Anri B.

- Anri A Progress: You’ll eventually come across the Church of Yorshka bonfire and Anri will be in the same room. Exhaust her dialogue (Receive Quiet Resolve Gesture) and then look towards the side of the room that has some stone statues. One of these is actually a pilgrim sent by Yuria using the Chameleon spell. Slash away at the statues until you find him and make sure he’s dead. He’ll drop the Chameleon spell for you as well.

- Anri B Progress: Exhaust Anri’s dialogue (Receive Quiet Resolve Gesture) and do nothing in regards to the pilgrim.

- Firelink Shrine Bonfire Progress: Starting at the Church of Yorshka bonfire, go down the hallway stairs, and go right along the cliff. The Undead Bone Shard is located behind the large tombstone at the end of this path. If you helped Sirris, Creighton will invade you here if you’re embered. Killing him will gain you the Dragonslayer’s Axe and allow you to return to the bridge where you used Sirris’ summon sign to grab Creighton’s Armor Set.

- Shrine Handmaid Progress: While walking around the sewer area, you’ll find a basement that contains several Sewer Centipedes. In the corner opposite some stairs are the Excrement-covered Ashes.

- Siegward Progress: Head up these stairs and you’ll find Siegward hanging out by the fire. Exhaust his dialogue and you’ll receive the Emit Force Miracle and any gestures you missed from his first encounter.

- Greirat Progress: Return to Firelink Shrine and talk to Greirat. He’ll ask to pillage Irithyll. Only do this after confirming Siegward is in Irthyll OR if you have Patches. If you have neither, Greirat will perish and his ashes can be found in the sewer area.

- Patches Progress: If you haven’t been following Siegward’s quest or just want to be extra safe, refresh Firelink Shrine after sending Greirat out and Patches will ask you where he went. Tell him and Patches will head out to protect Greirat as well.

- Black Hand Gotthard Progress: If you missed him at the Abyss Watchers fight, he can be summoned for the Pontiff Sulyvahn fight and you’ll receive the By My Sword Gesture upon his summon.

- Yuria Progress: If you didn’t summon the Londor Pale Shade during the Abyss Watchers fight, you get another chance here. Remember, you must be following the Yoel/Yuria quest line to have the ability to summon her. You'll receive the Duel Bow Gesture.

- Yuria/Anri B Progress: Head back to Firelink Shrine after defeating Pontiff and talk to Yuria and she’ll discuss that the “marriage ceremony” is almost complete.

- Once you enter the building after the Giant courtyard, there will be a illusory wall on the left side that reveals a long ladder down. Head down and defeat two of Sulyvahn’s Beasts and interact with Archdeacon McDonnell to gain the Aldrich Faithful covenant.

- Shrine Handmaid Progress: As you make your way up the building with the Silver Knight archers, you can drop down to a roof below and find the Easterner’s Ashes.

- Anri B Progress: Before activating the lift to Anor Londo, there is a illusory wall in the room before the lever. Activate it and you’ll find the pilgrim waiting for you. He’ll give you the Sword of Avowal and tell you Anri is waiting ahead. Head down to altar to find Anri’s body. Interact with it to begin the ceremony and you’ll gain Anri’s Straight Sword and her 3 Dark Sigils, granting you the total amount of 8 Dark Sigils you need for the Usurpation of Fire ending.

Anor Londo
- After using the lift to get to Anor Londo, run back down the stairs and you’ll be able to see a tower in the distance. Walk across the sky to reveal a invisible floor and continue walking straight until lined up with the tower, then walk towards it. You’ll find Yorshka who will allow you into the Blades of the Darkmoon covenant. If she doesn’t allow you, perform the Darkmoon Loyalty gesture in front of her to prove you are worthy.

- Andre Progress: Once looking at the Anor Londo main door, head left and you’ll find a dead Giant with the Giant’s Coal by his body, which will grant you Lightning, Simple & Chaos Infusions.

- Andre Progress: Once inside the main castle, there will be an area on the ground floor with several Writhing Rotten Flesh enemies. Next to them will be a chest with a Estus Shard within it.

- Anri A Progress: Open the main doors using the lever and fight the Deep Accursed enemy. You’ll then find Anri’s summon sign right next to the doors and be summoned to her world to fight her version of Aldrich.

- Anri A Progress: After defeating him, return to Firelink Shrine and talk to Ludleth and he’ll give you Anri’s Straight Sword, stating that she left it for you now that her mission was complete.

- Anri A Progress: If you told Anri of the Smouldering Lake, that is where she will be, in the same area where you fought Horace. She has also succumbed to the Dark Sigils and become hostile, so do her a favor and put her out of her misery. If you didn’t tell her of the Smouldering Lake, she will instead be near the entrance of the Cathedral of the Deep. Defeating her allows you to purchase her Elite Knight Armor Set from the Shrine Handmaid.

- Sirris Progress: After defeating Aldrich, travel to Undead Settlement via either the Cliff Underside or Dilapidated Bridge bonfire and make your way back to the room before the Curse-rotten Greatwood fight. You will find Sirris’ summon sign right before the giant hole that leads to the Pit of Hollows. You’ll be summoned to fight Holy Knight Hodrick, who turns out to be Sirris’ grandfather. Defeating him grants you the Sunset Armor Set. You can then also find the Sunset Shield on his grave, which is located outside Firelink Shrine where the undead dog normally is.

- Sirris Progress: Refresh Firelink Shrine and Sirris will appear here and ask to be your knight. Agree and she’ll be able to be summoned for the final three main boss fights of the game. Refuse and you’ll find her Hollow in the Pit of Hollows and have to kill her.

Irithyll Dungeon
- Andre Progress: A decent amount into the Irithyll Dungeon, you’ll eventually get outside the dungeon area for a brief period and then head back into it with a room that as a Mimic chest. Kill the mimic and it’ll drop a Estus Shard.

- Siegward Progress: In the room with the Giant, kill him and then near where he was, you can talk to Siegward, who is trapped in a cell. The key to get to him is the Old Cell Key, which is in the exact room you’re currently in next to a Crystal Lizard. You’ll learn how to actually get to Siegward later.

- Andre Progress: A little past the previous room and a sewer, you'll come to an area with several Jailers. After coming out of the cell that contained two giant rats, head directly straight and you'll come to another cell that contains four Wretches and the Profaned Coal, which grants Dark, Blood & Hollow Infusions.

- Shrine Handmaid Progress: On the same side of the room will be another cell that contains the Xanthous Ashes.

- Karla Progress: This room contains a cell that finally shows you Karla, but it’s locked. You’ll find the key in the next area and have to return here.

- Before heading into the next area, there will be another passage that leads you to a lift that takes you back to a earlier area of the Irithyll Dungeon. Near the lift is a dragon statue that has the Dragon Torso Stone. Remember where this area is for later.

Profaned Capital
- Firelink Shrine Bonfire Progress: The first bonfire you find will have poor Laddersmith Gilligan’s dead corpse near it. You’ll receive the Stretch Out Gesture and a Undead Bone Shard from examining it.

- Don’t head down the giant ladder in this area after activating the bonfire just yet. Instead, go back down the smaller ladder you just came up and drop down to another area using a hole in the wall. Follow this path and you’ll find yourself at a toxic swamp with more Sewer Centipedes. This is where the bulk of the items of the Profaned Capital are.

- Orbeck Progress: Climb to the top of the building in this area and kill a NPC who I assume to be Logan to receive Logan’s Scroll.

- Karla Progress: There will be a stairway on this rooftop that you can head into that will eventually lead you back to the area where the Giant, but to a location you couldn’t previous access. You’ll find the Jailer’s Key Ring here, which is what is needed to free Karla.

- Siegward Progress: Head back out to the rooftop of the building and you should notice another building with windows near the stairs. You can run from the roof and jump through one of the windows, so do so. This leads to the cell that Siegward is stuck in. Open it and exhaust his dialogue, he’ll give you a Titanite Slab for saving him.

- Karla Progress: Return to where Karla’s cell was and you can now free her and send her to Firelink Shrine. Give her the two Pyromancy Tomes and with some effort, you can also give her the Londor Braille Divine Tome and Deep Braille Divine Tome to prevent corrupting Irina.

- Shrine Handmaid Progress: With your new Jailer’s Key Ring, you can also open a cell that was in the first area of Irithyll Dungeon that contains the Prison Chief’s Ashes.
