All Illusory WallsHints
Certain areas include secret passages through Illusory Walls, walls that you can attack or roll into to open them. These secret passages might lead to items, new areas, and more. While most Illusory Doors can be opened normally, the ones found in the Artorias of the Abyss content require you to use Cast Light to see them. If you’re having trouble with Illusory Walls, use the video guide below to find all of them.
One of the starting gifts you can pick is a Pendant, which has no use in-game. Fans searched and searched for a secret use for it and many theories were put forth, but the director eventually stated that he added in the Pendant as a prank.
Prototype AreasEaster Eggs
The files for Dark Souls Remastered include an early prototype map for the Upper Cathedral Ward in Bloodborne. The files also include part of the Boletaria level of Demon’s Souls, and a prototype for Dark Souls’s New Londo Ruins. While you can’t view these areas within the game itself, the modder who discovered them was able to extra the files and convert them in such a way that they could be opened and explored within Grand Theft Auto V, which makes this particularly strange to view.
How to Unlock All CovenantsUnlockables
There are 9 different Covenants you can join, although each has its own focus and benefits. Covenants primarily affect multiplayer gameplay, with some additional benefits as well.
Chaos Servant – In Quelaag’s domain, go behind the fake wall and talk to Eingyi to express your interest in joining the covenant. You will receive Great Chaos Fireball, and at Rank 2 you will get Chaos Storm and the ability to unlock a shortcut to Lost Izalith.
Warriors of Sunlight – You must have at least 25 Faith, and the requirement will be decreased by 5 for every boss you helped kill in online co-op as a White Phantom. Go to the Broken Altar in the Undead Parish and pray for a chance to join. You will appear as a Golden Phantom instead of a White Phantom, get a Sunlight Medal when you defeat a boss as a Golden Phantom, and be more likely to be matched with other members of the covenant online. You will also get Lightning Spear, and at Rank 1 you’ll get Great Lightning Spear and the ability to trade the Soul of Gwyn for Sunlight Spear.
Princess Guard – After you defeat Ornstein and Smaugh, talk to Gwynevere to join. You will get the Ring of the Sun Princess, as well as Soothing Sunlight and Bountiful Sunlight, and you’ll be more likely to be matched with other members of the covenant online.
Way of White – Talk to either Petrus of Thoroland at Firelink Shrine or Rhea of Thorolund at the Undead Parish after saving her to join. You will be more likely to be matched with other members of the covenant online and much less likely to have your game invaded.
Darkwraith – You must defeat Great Wolf Sif and get the key from Ingward to enter the Abyss, fight the Four Kings, and talk to Darkstalker Kaathe. Answer “yes” to his question to join. You will get the Dark Hand weapon, at Rank 1 you’ll get the Red Eye Orb and an upgrade to your Dark Hand, at Rank 2 you’ll get the Darksword and Darkwraith Armor Set and an upgrade to your Dark Hand, and at Rank 3 you’ll get another Dark Hand upgrade. Kaathe will also sell you Cracked Red Eye Orbs.
Forest Hunter – You must talk to Alvina at the Darkroot Garden. You will be summoned to invade players who enter the forest who aren’t part of the covenant. As you defeat enemies, you will get titanite chunks and other rewards, and Alvina will give you Divine Blessing, the Ring of Fog, and also a conversation about Shiva as you get more victories.
Path of the Dragon – Make your way to the Ash Lake hidden area, defeat the Hydra mini-boss, and pray to the Everlasting Dragon. You will get the Dragon Eye and Dragon Head Stone, at Rank 1 they’ll be upgraded, at Rank 2 they’ll be upgraded again and you’ll get the Dragon Torso Stone, and at Rank 3 the Head Stone and Torso Stone will be upgraded again. This covenant allows you to challenge players to 1-on-1 duels to get Dragon Scales.
Blade of the Dark Moon – Go to Anor Londo with the Darkmoon Séance Ring and go all the way down to the Darkmoon Tomb bonfire, then go through the opening toward the fog wall, but wait for Gwyndolin to finish speaking. You will be able to interact to kneel to Gwyndolin and join. You will get a Blue Eye Orb, at Rank 1 you will get the Darkmoon Blade and Darkmoon Talisman, at Rank 2 the Darkmoon Blade will be upgraded, and at Rank 3 it will be upgraded again. This covenant lets you invade players who have “sinned” (darkening Anor Londo, killing NPCs, killing Gwyndolin, etc.).
Gravelord Servant – Without fighting Gravelord Nito, go to the Catacombs with an Eye of Death and find the crypt where the Titanite Demon is, find the unoccupied coffin, and interact with it to “nestle into it” to get a cutscene. Then, in the large room, head toward the larger coffin and join the covenant. You will get the Gravelord Sword and the Gravelord Sword Dance, at Rank 1 you’ll get the Gravelord Greatsword Dance, at Rank 2 the dances will be upgraded, and at Rank 3 they’ll be upgraded again. This covenant lets you curse other players so that Black Phantoms begin to appear in their worlds, until the cursed player defeats the Gravelord Servant.
The strange crab-like creatures you might have noticed are called Vagrants. A Vagrant will appear in your game if you leave a bloodstain with a high amount of humanity and don’t collect it or leave certain items behind and then reload the area. If you don’t kill the Vagrant, it will eventually go to another player’s game. A Vagrant that is continually sent from game to game will transform into an Evil Vagrant that has a claw and a powerful ranged attack.
It doesn’t particularly matter which class you pick when you’re first starting out, as long as you don’t pick the Deprived class, which is intentionally much harder.
Pick the starting gift that sounds right to you, but be aware that the Pendant has no use.
The Master Key is a useful starting gift, but it can allow you to skip areas (which might be a good or bad thing, depending on your perspective).
At a bonfire, you can use Humanity to restore your humanity, and a second one will let you pick Kindle Bonfire to make that bonfire give you 10 Estus Flasks instead of 5.
Spend your souls. While you can reclaim them after you die, dying a second time makes those souls disappear. It might be tempting to hoard them, but consider spending them to improve yourself a little bit at a time rather than risk losing everything.
Your stamina replenishes faster when your shield is down. Try to only raise your shield when you need to defend.
Learning to dodge reliably will be much more beneficial in the long run than relying on your shield.
If you sneak up behind humanoid enemies, you can backstab them for a great amount of damage.
You can also lock onto enemies to focus your attacks on them and circle them as you move.
Always look around to make sure you aren’t about to stumble into a trap or hidden enemies.
