- Siegward Progress: Head into the Yhorm fight and the intro cutscene will show Siegward has come with you to help put his old friend to rest. Upon defeating him, you’ll probably be teleported to the High Wall of Lothric, so come back to the Yhorm boss room later to find Siegward’s Catarina Armor Set, the Pierce Shield, and another Storm Ruler.

Consumed King’s Garden
-------------------------------------
- Andre Progress: After defeating the Dancer of the Boreal Valley and activating the ladder that was behind Emma, head up it and take the first left to reach a lift. Halfway down, jump off to a platform and then head down the stairs to the right to find a Estus Shard.

- Hawkwood Progress: You can summon Hawkwood here for assistance against the enemies around the level and Oceiros, the Consumed King.

- After defeating Oceiros, continue on down and you’ll find the Path of the Dragon Gesture on a body.

- Continue further and you’ll find a chest. The wall behind the chest is a illusory wall, so activate it and you’ll arrive at the Untended Graves.

Untended Graves
----------------------------
- Fire Keeper Progress: At the very end of the Untended Graves when you reach the alternate version of Firelink Shrine, activate the illusory wall to where Irina normally is and you’ll find the Eyes of a Fire Keeper. These can be given to the Fire Keeper to trigger the End of Fire ending.

- Shrine Handmaid Progress: There is another Shrine Handmaid here that sells the Wolf Knight Armor Set, the Priestess Ring, and other merchandise. Unlike the regular Handmaid, if you kill this one, she will not respawn, so be careful.

Archdragon Peak
----------------------------
- Remember that area in the Irithyll Dungeon I said to remember? You know, with the dragon statue? Go there now. Use the Path of the Dragon gesture right next to the dragon statue and wait a bit and you’ll be teleported to Archdragon Peak.

- Hawkwood Progress: Beat the Ancient Wyvern boss and you’ll receive the Dragon Head Stone.

- Hawkwood Progress: You can summon Hawkwood a little outside the Great Belfry bonfire and he’ll assist you to get to the top of the stairway with loads of enemies in the path. Use the Path of the Dragon gesture at the altar at the very top of the stairway (Hawkwood will show you where) and you’ll get the Twinkling Dragon Torso Stone.

- Shrine Handmaid Progress: On the way to get the Twinkling Dragon Torso Stone, you can find the Dragon Chaser’s Ashes off to the side.

- Hawkwood Progress: Head back to Firelink Shrine and talk to Andre. He’ll give you a message from Hawkwood asking you to come to the Abyss Watchers bonfire to settle things. Head there and battle Hawkwood. If you win, you gain the Twinkling Dragon Head Stone. If you lose, Hawkwood takes your Twinkling Dragon Torso Stone. You can battle him as many times as you like until you beat him.

Lothric Castle
------------------------
- Greirat Progress: From this point on, if Greirat offers to pillage Lothric Castle, refuse. No matter what happens, he will die on this trip. Even if you tell Patches of his whereabouts after he departs, Patches can’t even save him.

- Firelink Shrine Bonfire Progress: Starting at the Dragon Barracks bonfire, go up the stairs and to the bride where the two dragons are. Run almost all the way across the bridge and drop off at the end. A Undead Bone Shard is underneath the bridge.

- Looking at the fog door for the Dragonslayer Armour, turn around and use the ladder on the building to climb up it. Head over the roofs to the windows of an opposite building. Climb down the ladder in this room and move through the bridge to reach a altar. Pray at it to receive the Praise the Sun Gesture.

- Eygon Progress: If to this point, you have not purchased any Dark Miracles from Irina or not even given her the Londor and Deep Tomes, Eygon can be summoned for the Dragonslayer Armour fight. His dead body can be found in Irina’s original cell in the Undead Settlement after this fight. You can then purchase Morne’s Armor Set from the Shrine Handmaid.

- Irina Progress: After defeating Dragonslayer Armour and activating the bonfire, turn around and you’ll find the Braille Divine Tome of Lothric down some stairs.

- Irina Progress: There are two ends to Irina’s side quest depending on if you follow what I’ve told you to do or not. Irina A is the good end, Irina B is the bad end.

- Irina A Progress: By giving her just the Braille Divine Tome of Carim and Braille Divine Tome of Lothric, or by giving her all 4 Tomes, but not buying any Dark Miracles, you can make Irina a Fire Keeper. Just buy all her standard spells, plus Med Heal, Tears of Denial, Force, Bountiful Light, Blessed Weapon, and Magic Barrier. She’ll move to the bottom of the tower to the left of Firelink Shrine after you refresh the world and now act as a Fire Keeper. If you did give her the Londor and Deep Tome instead of Karla, they will be on the ground beside her and you can now give them to Karla.

- Irina B Progress: If you gave Irina the Londor Braille Divine Tome and Deep Braille Divine Tome and bought ANY of these spells (Deep Protection, Gnaw, Dark Blade, Vow of Silence, or Dead Again), she will have disappeared for you sometime in the game from her normal location in Firelink Shrine. She would then be outside near the Index Gundyr fight area with Eygon. Eygon will believe you have killed her and is hostile. Upon killing him, you see that Irina is still actually alive, but the corruption has begun for her. This is an alternate way of Morne’s Armor Set being available for purchase. After Irina returns to Firelink Shrine, buying all the Dark Miracles listed above will fully corrupt her and she’ll no longer act as a vendor to you. Equipping the Morne’s Gauntlets allows you to believe you to be Eygon and she’ll ask to be killed. Do so and you can give her ashes to the Shrine Handmaid to sell her miracles.

Grand Archives
-------------------------
- Orbeck Progress: Once inside the Grand Archives, you’ll notice a Crystal Sage. Killing her will give you the Crystal Scroll.

- Orbeck Progress: Orbeck grants you different rewards based on certain criteria. The Young Dragon Ring is given to you after buying three of his spells and giving him at least one scroll. The Slumbering Dragon Ring is given to you after buying Aural Decoy, Farron Flashsword, and Pestilent Mercury. He’ll also give you the Silent Ally Gesture through this. Giving him all 4 scrolls and buying every spell he offers will cause him to tell you he is departing. You’ll now be able to summon him for the Twin Princes fight.

- Firelink Shrine Bonfire Progress: In the area of the rooftops where you fight some Gargoyles, there will be a broken window that you have to enter. The Undead Bone Shard will be on this balcony on a dead body in a chair.

- Andre Progress: On the very top of the Grand Archives while looking at the stairs to the Twin Princes fight, turn around and go up another roof where the three Gertrude’s Knights are. You’ll find a Estus Shard on the very back of this roof.

- Orbeck Progress: After beating the Twin Princes, you can find his dead body in the Grand Archives if he departed from your Firelink Shrine after you bought all his spells. You can give his ashes to the Shrine Handmaid for her to sell his spells. You could also maybe now give them to Yuria for the Morion Blade if there isn’t a time limit to when you can, not sure on this.

- Sirris Progress: Return to her grandfather’s grave after the Twin Princes fight and you’ll find her body with the Sunless Talisman on it. You can also now buy Sirris’ Sunless Armor Set from the Shrine Handmaid.

- Leonhard Progress: With Sirris’ side quest complete, you are now free to finally continue Leonhard’s. Head to the Rosaria’s Bed Chamber bonfire and either give her a Pale Tongue or equip the Rosaria’s Fingers covenant item. Refresh the world and Leonhard will now be in this room. Exhaust his dialogue. Refresh the world again and Rosaria will now be dead with a Black Eye Orb on her body.

- Leonhard Progress: Head to the Aldrich bonfire in Anor Londo and take either of the lifts in the room up. The Black Eye Orb will react to this room. Use it and you’ll invade Leonhard’s world. Kill him for Rosaria’s Soul, Crescent Moon Sword, and the Silver Mask. You can also now buy Leonhard’s Armor Set from the Shrine Handmaid. You can either return Rosaria’s Soul to her body or give it to Ludleth for the Bountiful Sunlight Miracle. Considering you can still interact with her body even if she’s dead, I’d give it to Ludleth.

- Put all the Lord of Cinders back on their thrones if you haven’t already and then interact with the Firelink Shrine Bonfire to be teleported to the Kiln of the First Flame.

Kiln of the First Flame
---------------------------------
Yuria Progress: You can summon Yuria for the Soul of Cinder fight. After the fight, go to Firelink Shrine and where Yuria normally is will now be her Black Armor Set and Darkdrift.

Ending Guide: Depending on what you’ve done at this point, you will have certain options for the endings you can select.

Ending 1: Simply interact with the First Flame results in the 'To Link the First Flame' ending. This is the standard ending.

Ending 2: If you obtained the Eyes of a Fire Keeper from the Untended Graves area and gave them to the Fire Keeper you can use a summon sign next to the bonfire to trigger the 'The End of Fire' ending.

Ending 3: If you follow the steps to Ending #2, during the final scene you have a short window where you regain control of your character. You can attack the Fire Keeper after the cutscene for a different version of the ‘The End of Fire’ ending.

Ending 4: If you followed the Yoel/Yuria quest line to this point and “married” Anri, you can usurp the flame by wrestling the flame from its mantle triggering the 'Usurpation of Fire' ending. To progress this option, you must have 8 total Dark Sigils. The 5 from Yoel’s Draw Out True Strengths and the 3 from “marrying” Anri. Simply interact with the First Flame at this point and it’ll activate.

Think people have to request a unsticky for V1 as well, though I'm sure the mods would know to replace them.

@DeathGodGarra

Is Ending 5 the "true" ending?

Bloodborne Spoiler: Like the Bloodborne ending where you beat Gehrman and then there's another boss (Moon Presence) that you face for the complete ending.

I'm trying to get the ending that comes from beating any and all bosses.
