High Wall of Lothric


When the High Wall appeared, the path to the Undead Settlement was blocked, and messengers came bearing this banner. They were sent out with a duty, but had no way of returning.

The is no shortage of brash thieves in Lothric, and these particular thieves likely scaled the wall from the Undead Settlement.

But they are only willing to practice their thievery on the High Wall, for their fear of Lothric Castle, rumored to devour men, keeps them clear of its grounds.

General Information

The first connected zone in the world of Dark Souls III. From here, you can head towards the Cathedral of the Deep, or perhaps traverse the swamps of Farron Keep, although not before passing through the Undead Settlement.

It is possible to defeat the Dancer of the Boreal Valley and proceed to Lothric Castle, a end-game zone. However, you cannot enter the Grand Archives without defeating the first three Lords of Cinder first, so the benefits of doing so are circumstantial.


Deep Battle Axe:

Estus Shard:

  • From the Tower on the Wall bonfire, proceed down the stairs and the tower, to the floor with two Hollow Assassins in. Head through the exit outside, and climb down the ladder, watching out for the two Hollow Soldiers lying in ambush. Continue forward, avoiding the Pus of Man and down another ladder.
  • Enter the room immediately in front of you and continue past the Lothric Knight, down into a cellar with several Hollow Soldiers and Starved Hounds. On top of an anvil you will find the shard.


From the Shrine

Having teleported from Firelink Shrine, head out of the antechamber you were teleported to. Outside, head down the ramparts to the bonfire.

The Right Path

Heading to the right from the bonfire, you will encounter some Hollows and Undead Dogs. Be sure to kill the Crossbow Hollow behind you by returning up the stairs and through a broken part of the wall.

Once you have cleared the rampart, head forward up onto the tower platform. You will encounter several non-aggressive praying Hollows, another Crossbow Hollow and a Pus of Man. Pick up the Longbow and 12 Standard Arrows by the praying statue. Return back down to the bonfire.

The Left Path

Take the left path from the bonfire on another rampart and clear the Hollows on it. Pick up the Soul of a Deserted Corpse in the middle of the area. Continue past the dead dragon into the inner wall.

In the first circular room within the inner wall, kill the Hollows and climb down the ladder in the middle of the room. Continue through onto a lower rampart. Kill the Hollows on the rampart and walk up the first staircase to an upper rampart.

As you reach the top of the top of the staircase, a dragon will land and breath fire across the whole of the upper rampart, killing most of the Hollows. Watch out for the fire breath further down the lower rampart's path. Head back up to the upper rampart, timing your movements to avoid the dragon fire. Pick up Club, Ember, Large Soul of a Deserted Corpse and the Claymore. You can open the door below the dragon too.

Having survived the dragon, continue through the lower rampart and into a elevated courtyard, picking up a Soul of a Deserted Corpse on a nearby corpse. Watch out for the aggressive Lothric Knight. Head to the right into the inner wall.

Once inside the wall, head to the right and pick up 3 Firebombs on a suspended plank. Head outside to the right to the Tower on the Wall bonfire.

Tower on the Wall

From the bonfire head to the left to pick up 1 Titanite Shard. Head back down into the inner wall and take the staircase down, watching out for the Hollows. Head down the ladder nearby to the next level. Go through the cellar, picking up the 8 Throwing Knifes to the right.
