How to Defeat Vordt of The Boreal Valley:



Vordt is the Second Boss you will be encountering in Hall Wall of Lothric
after Ludex Gundyr. Vordt is a Knight or we can say a fallen knight has
turned into a beast and you must take him down. He has the ability to walk
on all fours also wields a mace in one hand.

Taking him down will be easy only if you have the right equipment like you
must have an Armor or any item that will boost your frost resistance to
blocking Vordt's ice attacks. Now taking Vordt down should be an easy task,
simply stay close to his Rear side and wait for him to swing his attack,
once he is done it's time to charge him with your light weight attacks and
the roll away from him.

If you manage to drain his 50% of the health which will make him angry and
he will start charging attacks 3 times more than normal, then with some
ice attacks from his mouth. SO Repeat the same tricks to get behind him,
wait for the right moment and then charge with Heavy attacks until you get
him down. Once you Defeat him he will drop Soul of Boreal Valley Vordt and
3000 souls.


Irithyll Straight Sword Location:



In order to obtain the Irithyll Straight Sword, you must travel to Undead
Settlement area. Travel to the tower from where someone is showering Arrows
at you from the start. At the entrance of the Tower, you see someone coming
up from the elevator who is actually Siegward of Catarina. Use the elevator
to head down to the basement and then head towards the room where you will
the Frost Knight. Now he is very quick with his attacks so he can kill you
in seconds if you aren't guarded. If you try attacking him with fire he will
give up really faster rather than normal heavy combat. Once you take him
down he will drop Irithyll Straight Sword, so grab it and start using it.


Alternate endings:



Successfully complete the indicated task to view the corresponding ending.
Note: Make a backup of your saved game after defeating the final Boss so
you can copy back your old saved game and get the other endings in the same
playthrough.

To Link The First Flame: Simply interact with the bonfire after defeating
the final Boss. This is the standard ending and the easiest one to get.

The End Of Fire: You must find the hidden eyes in the Untended Graves area
to get this ending, which is the dark version of the starting area. Use
the "Finding Untended Graves secret area" hint to find out how to reach
that area. Once you reach that area, go to the shrine and hit the illusion
wall downstairs to reveal the eyes. Collect them and travel back to the
real firelink shrine. Give the eyes to the fire keeper. Then, kill the
final Boss (Soul of Cinder). You can then either light the bonfire or
summon the fire keeper. To get this ending, you must summon the fire
keeper (do not interact with the bonfire). She will only be available
when you have given the eyes to her.

The Usurpation Of Fire: This ending is easily missable and by far the most
complicated one to get. You must complete a long quest line to get it.
The most important factor is to never cure your hollowing while trying to
get this ending. This means do not heal your dark sigil, do not give a
firekeeper soul to the firekeeper, and do not use purging stones. Hollowing
is what makes your character look like a zombie. You are allowed to restore
ember. Successfully complete all of the following steps as soon as possible.
Do not do anything unnecessary in-between and do not progress the story any
further than you have to or you could mess things up. If anything goes wrong,
you can also speedrun the story within 2-3 hours in New Game+.

Step 1: Recruit Yoel on the bridge of "Foot Of The High Wall" bonfire.
Step 2: Talk to Yoel in the Firelink shrine and let him give you a free level up.
Step 3: Kill yourself eight times in a row (jump off the cliff).
Step 4: Level up four more times at Yoel (every two deaths is one level up).
Step 5: Yoel will now die and is replaced by Yuria in the Firelink shrine.
Talk to Yuria (fast travel back and forth so she spawns).
Step 6: Talk to Anri (a knight) at the "Halfway Fortress" bonfire
(Road Of Sacrifices area).
Step 7: Kill the Deacons Of The Deep Boss (Cathedral Of The Deep area).
Step 8: Talk to Anri in the Firelink shrine after defeating the Deacons Of
The Deep Boss.
Step 9: Talk to Anri near Catacombs Of Carthus entrance after killing the
Lord Of Cinder: Abyss Watchers Boss.
Step 10: Talk to Anri further down in the Catacombs (by the hanging bridge
before the Wolnir Boss).
Step 11: Kill Horace down in the area where you fight the Old Demon King
Boss (destroy hanging bridge to climb down there).
Step 12: Return to Anri and talk to her.
Step 13: Talk to Anri at the "Church Of Yorshka" bonfire (Irithyll Of The
Boreal Valley area).
Step 14: Kill the Pontiff Sulyvahn Boss (Irithyll Of The Boreal Valley area).
Step 15: Talk to Yuria in the Firelink shrine.
Step 16: Marry Anri in the room below the "Anor Londo" bonfire
(Irithyll Of The Boreal Valley area).
Step 17: Talk to Yuria one last time in the Firelink shrine.
Step 18: Proceed through the game and kill the final Boss (Soul Of Cinder).
Then, interact with the bonfire in front of you to trigger "The
Usurpation Of Fire" secret ending.


Finding Untended Graves secret area:



To reach the Untended Graves secret area, you must defeat "Oceiros, the
Consumed King" Boss. This is relatively late in the game. Oceiros is Boss 13
of 18. There is also a bonfire in the Boss room which you can use to fast
travel. Open the door where the Oceiros Boss fight took place and follow the
path into the next room. There is a secret wall behind a chest (end of the
room). Hit the wall to make it disappear. You can then drop down into the
Untended Graves area and will get the "Untended Graves" achievement.


Resetting skill points and changing appearance:



You can reset skill points in the "Cathedral Of The Deep" area, which is the
area where you fight the Deacons of the Deep Boss. The nearest bonfire is
called "Cleansing Chapel". Take the elevator up to the Cathedral's rooftop,
and climb up the ladder to the very top. You then need to drop down to a
small balcony in the Cathedral's main hall and again from the balcony to
an area below. The path leads to a room with a hidden bonfire and a worm-
like being named Rosaria. Talk to Rosaria, and she will let you join her
covenant (Rosaria's Fingers). You can then talk to her to respec skill
points and change your character's appearance. Note: You only have a total
of five resets -- so make sure to use them wisely.


Defeating Iudex Gundyr:



Iudex Gundyr is the first Boss in the game. He is part of the tutorial
section and quite easy to defeat. To start the fight, you must pull a spike
out of his chest. Attack him immediately to take away a good chunk of health
before he gets up. Approximately halfway through the fight, he will transform
and get more aggressive. He is defenseless while transforming. His attacks
can be parried with a shield, or simply dodge and try to get behind him. If
you play as a sorcerer or pyromancer, keep your distance. You can also use
your three estus flasks to refill health. You will get an achievement for
defeating each of the 18 Bosses.


Defeating Soul of Cinder:



Soul of Cinder is the final story Boss. After defeating him, you can
interact with the last bonfire (same place where you fight him) to trigger
the game ending and start New Game+. He uses a variety of attacks and
weapons that he is always switching around. A recommended strategy is to
take Havel's Greatshield (any greatshield will do) and walk close to him
in circles while blocking all attacks. After blocking his combo, attack
him 1-2 times and block again. After a few hits, he will get stunned and
you can take down a good chunk of his health. Just keep it slow and block,
do one hit and repeat. In between his attacks, you should release [Block]
so your stamina recovers quicker. When he uses magic, you can get up close
to him and just attack. After his first health bar is gone, he gets more
aggressive. His available attacks change slightly. He uses longer combos
and throws lightning spears at you. When he uses lightning he is vulnerable
-- that is when you should attack even if he hits you a few times. Roll
away from him when he does the 5-hit sword combo with the big fire explosion.
Everything else you can block with the shield. You just have to learn how
to balance your stamina for this fight so you have enough to block, but
also enough to get one hit in. Keep your equipment load below 70% to speed
up stamina recovery. You should definitely put a few points in stamina
before this fight.


Dangerous Chests:



Not every treasure chest is as helpful as it seems. Sometimes, you'll get near
one and find that it is actually a dangerous Mimic. Your best bet is to hack
apart any chest you find, so that you can get a head start if it winds up having
a life meter. However, another trick is to stand nearby, outside of potential
striking range. Watch the chest closely for several seconds. If you see any
movement, such as an opening and closing lid, that's your cue to get offensive.


Walls Have Secrets:



Don't just blindly trust that things are as they appear in Dark Souls III.
Often, you can find what appears to be a wall and it's actually only an illusion.
Make sure that you check walls in suspicious places by slashing at them with a
weapon, particularly near archways. Sometimes, you'll find a hidden path that
is well worth exploring.


Save Ember for Emergencies:



Ember raises your life maximum, and in the process, it restores your life to
the higher total. That's always useful, but it's especially useful when you're
in a grueling battle with a powerful opponent, such as a boss. Save Ember until
those occasions, and put it to use when you need it most. Not only will you
gain a max HP boost, but you'll take advantage of some much-needed healing
that would otherwise be wasted.


Firelink Shrine Trades:



If you know what items to leave with the crow near Firelink Shrine, you can
receive some nice rewards. Just keep track of what you provide as an offering,
since you can only leave a particular offering once. The list below lists the
items you can leave, along with their corresponding rewards.

Unlimited Souls:



By taking advantage of a special exploit, you can use a Boss Soul and it will
remain in your inventory. Thus, you can generate as many as 20,000 souls every 7
seconds or so, just by repeatedly consuming the same Boss Soul. The exploit is
valid through at least patch 1.03, but will likely be fixed at some point after
that. Before you begin, make sure that you save a copy of your file in case
something goes wrong. Then, carefully complete the following steps:

* Equip a shield that allows you to parry, such as the starting shield for the
Knight class.
* Place a Boss Soul in your first Quick Item slot and equip all items in any
other slots.
* Place an empty Estus Flask in your first toolbelt slot.
* With everything set up as indicated above, hold DOWN on the d-pad and be
ready to quickly follow the next step indicated in the process.
* While continuing to hold the DOWN button, parry and then quickly enter the
following moves, starting as the shield's position is parallel to your
character's shoulder: Strong Attack Left, Use Item, Open Menu, Confirm.

You have to time things very specifically, or the process will not work and
you'll use up your Boss Soul without the opportunity to exploit it. If you
perform the exploit properly, a confirmation box will appear and your item
select option will vanish. You will be able to consume the soul while it
remains in your inventory. If you perform the exploit successfully eight
times in a minute, that works out to 160,000 souls. If you maintain that
rate, it works out to more than 9 million souls per hour.


Infinite souls:



This exploit can be used with any of the Boss Souls you acquire after defeating a
Boss. It can be very difficult to do at first, but once you get the timing down it
becomes much easier. First, clear the tool belt of any items. Next, add an empty
estus flask to your tool belt slot. Equip a shield that lets you parry (for example,
the Knight's starting shield). Then, add a Boss Soul to one of your quick item slots.
Make sure there are no other items in your quick item slots. Finally, while holding
[Down] the entire time, perform a parry ([Strong Attack Left]), then during the parry
(when the shield is parallel to your character's shoulder -- just one frame before
he starts to drop it down), very quickly press [Use Item], [Open Menu], [Confirm].
Another method is while holding [Down] the entire time, press [Strong Attack Left],
then quickly press [Use Item] three times, [Open Menu], [Confirm]. If done correctly,
the equipment box will appear for a split-second and you will get a prompt to use
the soul and the HUD (that displays the quick item slots with the Boss Soul in it)
in the bottom left corner will have disappeared. If you do not see the equipment
box briefly appear and the HUD is still visible, select "No" when prompted to use
the soul. Otherwise, you will use the soul and not retain it. If the equipment box
did appear briefly during the button sequence and the HUD has disappeared, select
"Yes" to use it and get a lot of souls and still have the Boss Soul equipped.
Repeat this process as many times as desired. Note: It is recommended to create
a cloud or USB backup of your saved game before attempting this exploit. Thus,
if you make a mistake you can restore your saved game from the cloud or USB and
try again. Additionally, this glitch was performed on patch 1.03 of the game.
It may get patched. To avoid not being able to use this exploit, either do not
install new patches before using this exploit or delete the patches. You can
avoid patches being installed by disconnecting from the internet until you are
ready for the game to install new patches.


Snuggly the Crow items:



Get close to the nest above Firelink Shrine to talk to Snuggly the Crow. He will
trade items for specific things that are dropped in her nest with the "Leave" item
option in your inventory. Note: You can only do one trade per playthrough, however
this resets with each New Game+. Warning: Do not exit the game with an item still
resting on the ground before the trade has been completed or you will lose it.

Easy Uchigatana:



If you want the Uchigatana katana, you'll have to defeat the master swordsman who
wields it. You'll find him near the top of Firelink Shrine. However, you don't have
to fight him fairly. You can ascend carefully to the rooftops and then run along them.
You should see the swordsman, running along the base of the wall, hoping to duel.
From your vantage point, you can safely take him down with shots from the Soul Arrow
spell. Just make sure you don't run out of magic in the process, or you'll have to
drop down and finish the job the old-fashioned way.


Havel's Armor:



Find the Havel NPC in Archdragon Peak. Kill him and he will drop his weapon and a
Greatshield. Now, make your way to the bridge located above Farron Keep. There, you
should find a set of armor resting next to the stray demon. The armor only appears
in that location if you have first killed Havel at Archdragon Peak.


Unlimited Souls:



By taking advantage of a special exploit, you can use a Boss Soul and it will remain in
your inventory. Thus, you can generate as many as 20,000 souls every 7 seconds or so,
just by repeatedly consuming the same Boss Soul. The exploit is valid through at least

* Place an empty Estus Flask in your first toolbelt slot.
* With everything set up as indicated above, hold DOWN on the d-pad and be ready to quickly
follow the next step indicated in the process.
* While continuing to hold the DOWN button, parry and then quickly enter the following
moves, starting as the shield's position is parallel to your character's shoulder:
Strong Attack Left, Use Item, Open Menu, Confirm.

You have to time things very specifically, or the process will not work and you'll
use up your Boss Soul without the opportunity to exploit it. If you perform the
exploit properly, a confirmation box will appear and your item select option will
vanish. You will be able to consume the soul while it remains in your inventory.
If you perform the exploit successfully eight times in a minute, that works out
