Your going to start the game off in a strange valley.... Read the signs on the floor to learn some of the games basics. LOCK ON with R3 button on XONE or PS4. This is essential for throwing objects such as black firebombs or any type of projectile. Remember to LOCK OFF if you wish to escape or move more efficiently. Remember to contact me on or my phone via text. Any questions appreciated just keep it clean and to the GAME everyone ! 941-451-4511 - supercodebreak

After learning a bit of the basics you will HAVE to fight a BOSS. Yes it is that huge boss that seems undefeatable named Iudex Gundyr. To beat him just get your dodges down. If you need some more fire power, there are fire bombs down the cliff right before the boss fight. Try and keep all estus flasks and remember your dodge rolls.

After the boss goes down, head onward and up the mountain to Firelink Shrine. You will have picked up a coiled sword from the boss battle. Thrust it into the bonfire pit at Firelink Shrine THEN use fast travel to get to the first level which is the High Wall Of Lothric. Dark Souls III begins.....

HP : 1060 : SOULS EARNED : 3000

This is the necessary first boss of the game. He actually goes down quite easy. Just dodge his attacks with some practice. Try casting some attacks if your a caster before he gets close. Also if you saved your GIFT or FIREBOMBS located just south of here use them NOW to save time.

You can also parry Iudex Gundyr, but we will get into that later on in this section of the guide. For now I suggest just dodging and getting used to doing it. Don't give up however the game is just trying to show you that you will in fact die often.

He has two phases, the first phase is his full statue form where Iudex will wield a Giant Halberd. He has a strong sweep attack that has huge range. He will also lunge up into the air like a Dragoon Knight and come slamming down. Dodge this attack at all cost as it is his most damaging in phase #1.

In Phase #2 He will mutate becoming evermore dangerous. He will have more range and better attack power, yet be susceptible to FIRE attacks more. This is great if you picked up the Firebombs earlier, use them for this phase. If your a pyromancer cast some far away fireballs, don't forget to LOCK ON and LOCK OFF as well.

Once Iudex Gundyr is down you will recover your ember form and gain more HP until you die again of course. Now you can also head through the giant green doors.

You will reach Vordt as the second true boss of the game. He is a huge ice beast that can frostbite/freeze your avatar. My tactics personally were to Use an Ember to gain more HP. Do this when health is low and conserve your Estus Flask.

Vordt of Boreal Valley is WEAK against fire. Being a pyromancer this made things a bit easier. Casting fire balls at him from afar to start the battle. Then pure attack and healing with estus flask the next half.

For those without fire magic, try farming some black firebombs or firebombs. Also note some enemies may drop charcoal resin which can add fire to your attacks. Just be sure to HOT KEY it. You may also want to use some green herb to boost your stamina recover for the entire battle.

It's actually quite easy. Just hit the white bubbles. However you should really try and look for open opportunity to do so. Be careful but go at it. When there is only one or two spots left to hit, if it's out of reach try to MANUAL cast a projectile spell or item. It worked for me at the end.

Really tough boss ! She has two main attacks. The first one is the large pink crystal projectiles. These are a bit easier to avoid, however not in conjunction with the magic missile attack. Your best bet is to try and STUN LOCK her with well timed strikes.

You can roll to avoid the large projectiles, you can even hide behind walls and more, the real tough part is phase #2. Know in phase 2 she will duplicate herself into a bunch of mimics.
The fake ones cast blue crystals on the ground all over the place. It's quite hard to dodge AND to focus on the PURPLE that is the REAL Sage.

We have a really good tactic video taken from the good people at check out the banner above for the tactic in video it will help tons! Also note you SHOULD take MORE estus flask here then ashen flasks before the battle and use the shortcut to get to the sage as well.

It seems tough,but it's actually very simple, especially if you have a ranged magic or projectile attack. I used my Pyromancer here and stuck with his fireball. I also had on the Conjurator robes which lowered my equip load, but that doesn't mean to much.

To beat this guy just stay close launch a fireball/arrow/projectile then roll back when he swipes his arms at you. It is that easy, any questions just ask and I suggest clicking the banner to see the distance in action.

The 2nd giant is actually more easily taken out. When the gate has been lowered he can not even get close enough to hit you. At that point go pick up some arrows from a local merchant and fire away, just make sure you have enough projectiles to take him out.

For this boss I found it really easy with an AoE { area of effect } Weapon such as the whip. They also seem vulnerable to FIRE and being a Pyromancer this made the battle the easiest yet. The choice is yours if you want to use the whip or not, as I combined Iron Flesh to finish the Arch Deacon at the end of the fight.

To conquer the battle, you must hit the RED AURA deacons first. After they are down there will be some taller deacons spewing black magic. Attack them then the Arch Deacon will appear in the middle of all the other deacons. He is NOW the main target, just focus attacks on the Arch Deacon to win.

This is the best looking and possibly my favorite boss battle. I also found it quite easy. When he reaches his head back simply run away ! He will spew a poison that is very devastating here so be sure to run once again. To defeat him all you have to do is hit his Gold bracelets, that is it's weak point. Other then the poison just roll to dodge attacks. A Strength build was what I used. If your having trouble with other specs try to reallocate your attributes at Rosaria mother of rebirth before the fight.

The Old Demon king is an optional boss that can be found in the Smouldering Lake area of the Catacombs of Carthus. It's quite a large area and can be covered starting with the High Lord Wolnir bonfire. Hit the suspended bridge and descend down past the first "DEMON" and then continue towards the Ancient Tomb Bonfire.

The boss battle itself could be easy, especially if you have fire resistant gear/pellets lots of estus and maybe even the FLASH SWEAT pyromancy. In fact all that should make this battle a BREEZE. Use Irythll Frost Blade to top things off and it should be a TOTAL cakewalk.

The dancer can be tough, it uses both a blade of fire and a blade of darkness. If you can boost resist to both of those, possibly one through armor and the other through some bug pellets it would help a bunch. I know it sounds dumb but TRY to not get hit, it's easier said then done because this battle will keep you on your toes. I used great chaos fire orb with it's lava pool tick damage and it worked great VS dancer as it does other bosses. More information to come in new game +. Click the banner for the video.

Pale blue sheepskin parchment detailing the moon of an ancient accord. Equip to pledge oneself to the way of the blue. Members of the way of blue are beneficiaries of an ancient accord. When a dark spirit threatens them, a blue spirit will grant them assistance, and help root out the invader.Summoning takes place automatically while this is equipped.

Located across the boss battle with Vordt of the Boreal valley, in the cathedral. You must equip it or blue sentinels will NOT be summoned to your aid. This is a good covenant item to use for players new to the series or the game. The sentinels are summoned automatically when you are invaded.

For the  Blue Sentinels, it is a bit different then using the way of the blue covenant emblem. First obtain the emblem by heading to Road Of Sacrifices and talking to Horace The Hushed a knight in armor. You can turn in items at Anor Londo at Company Captain Yorshka. The Covenant shares it's ranks with blades of the Darkmoon. You will need "ears" or proof of concord kept. To acquire these you can FARM silver knights in Anor Londo. Alternatively you can be summoned while wearing your covenant emblem and defeat the invader to earn a proof of concord as well.

Company Captain Yorshka is located in the Anor Londo Bonfire, there is an invisible path to take from here. Pull the level at Anor Londo Bonfire, when the tower comes up head down the stairs. You should see another bonfire in the distance, cross an INVISIBLE path to the bonfire and meet Captain Yorshka.

Demonic Fist that burns with fiery essence. It's wielder can release this power through use of it's skill. When Two-Handed, fists are equipped in each hand. This item can be transposed off of Lourland once you find the DEMON'S SOUL. You must first defeat High Lord Wolnir, then knock down the bridge. Go down the bridge and the next corner will have the Demon enemy. Watch the video by clicking the banner for the Location and Weapon tactics/analysis.

The Fire Whirlwind skill is awesome ! It has a great animation and a finisher that can KNOCK enemies up into the air then down on the ground. This gives time to regenerate your stamina. It does not work on many larger enemies for the obvious reasons. The flame whirlwind attack hits about 6-7 times and each hit WILL stack with Pontiffs Eye Ring for extra damage. Fire clutch ring will also raise damage. 

Please watch the video in entirety. I will discuss a bit about Item Discovery stats, the items you SHOULD have to farm Wolf Blood Swordgrass. The locations of the Farron Wolf, farming spot and other item details. At the end of the video will be the sword and it's stats. You can NOT use the skill without appropriate attributes.

First watch the video for Faron Wolf location. The wolf is up the ladder right around the corner from the KEEP RUINS bonfire. Get the covenant emblem from the Wolf by praying to him.

Make sure to equip the covenant emblem. This can help you farm the blood swordgrass. Sometimes you will be called to duty for your covenant randomly. If you complete the quest by defeating the opposing host of embers you will gain a swordgrass.

You can find mimics. Just be sure to use a Undead Hunter Charm on then and do NOT kill them. Be sure to reset at bonfire. Mimics will drop the SYMBOL of AVARICE. This will increase item discovery. The Hunter Charms can be purchased later on at the Handmaiden in Firelink Shrine.

Get the Crystal Sage Rapier, which increases item discovery only when WIELDED by 50. You can trade in the Crystal sage soul from Lourland for this.

Finally you can get the Covetous GOLD serpent ring, however it's not too necessary unless your farming HEAVY for the watchdogs. It also comes much later in the game. 

In conclusion I completed the 10 and got the Old Curved Wolf Sword at Item Discovery 170. It took about 4 Hours. Long but if you have some other items and or even Rusted Coins which Patches sells it's easier. Patches comes later however so save them coins, some can be farmed in act 1 or Lothric Highwall.

A well crafted sword named after the ruined land.... Astora,before it's fall, was a land replete with royal blood. and this weapon is both a reminder and heirloom of that era.

To get the Cornyx Garb and the Spotted Whip, you must complete a series of events. First just to be sure, save Cornyx in the CLIFF UNDERSIDE bonfire area. Make sure he stays alive.

This is a basic chainmail set sold by the Old Handmaiden right near the blacksmith in Firelink Shrine. I Suggest getting it early on. It's going to crank up your defense a bit and is NOT too heavy. It also doesn't cost much. Get it unless you really know what your doing or want to save time.

This location is a bit difficult to find. Firstly go to Farron Keep bonfire way point. Turn left and stay on the left side. Run over the 3 land marks while keeping to the left. You should eventually run into a fallen ROOK type tower ruin, the Dark Wraith will be waiting there for you. Kill him and loot his gear, it drops VERY easily. Farm it until you have the complete set which includes the Dark Sword.

Armor set of a knight once known as the darkmoon. It is said that this brass armor hides something hideous within. Something about its silhouette suggest femininity. You can find this in the darkmoon tomb, right near the rooftops with the silver knights. Hit the wall with a lord of cinder statue to reveal an illusory wall. Inside the deep hallway is the armor on a corpse among other items.

This Lothic Knight set is worn and can be farmed off of the RED caped Lothric Knights in the games first level, High Wall of Lothric. It may take some time to farm them, however it has great defense and I found it pretty worth it. You can also farm the sword and shield and possibly spear. We have the latter covered in the video banner above with locations and views check it out !

Nice looking set that is lighter in weight then the previous Lothric Knight Set. Albeit, it takes a bit longer to get and may possibly be even worse then the latter. Not to mention it cost on estimate 5,000 souls all together. Nice looking light weight, not bad defense for early on. Looks really detailed and cool, and we all know what that's about.

The trick here is to make sure you leave or fast travel from the games 2nd level undead settlement. Preferably the Dilapitated Bridge area. If your at High Wall of Lothic he may not sell items, watch the video for more clarity on the subject.

The video link above will show you the exact path, to finding both the cell and the cell key to release the merchant. Further more you must take his ring to get Loretta's bone and continue having him pillage for you. More on Loretta's bone later which is located in the games second level.

Loretta's Bone is located on one of the UPSIDE DOWN hung up corpses. You should see an item glow on one of theme. Hit it to knock it down then pick up the item. It's towards the start of the level.
