Part 1

1 From the starting area, turn around and get the Half Moon Grass from behind some panels.
2 Head toward the plaza and go up the stairs but be ready for an ambush from dreglings hiding on the side.
3 Defeat more enemies along the staircase and past the corpse. More dreglings will attack from behind wooden planks as you move further so deal with them as well.
4 When you get to the top of the stairs, get the items from the bodies there before heading to the path on the left.
5 An archer will fire at you when you arrive in the square room upstairs. Take out the enemies that approach first and make your way along the edges of the room.
6 Further ahead is a a grating with a hole in it that you should avoid. Make your way across and go up to kill the archer.
7 Go through the opening in the next room and take out two enemies there (one of them will be hiding in the dark to your right). Head into the guard’s room and take out the guard there.

2 Head through the opening on your left. Make your way up while killing off the guards along the way. Be careful not to fall of the side.

5 At the top of the stairs, get ready to deal with more soldiers.
6 At the wide branching area, turn around from the top of the stairs
7 Turn around from the top of the stairs and head toward the archers on the wooden plank. Do not go inside the room ahead as the Red Eye Knight there may be too hard to beat at this points. Head back to the staircase.
8 Head past the staircase and defeat the knight near the catapults. Bait out his opening strike with your shield and attack him as he recovers to defeat him.
9 Face the wall on the right of the area after defeating the knight and drop down to an opening. You should find yourself on a ledge. Turn around get the Light Crossbow and Wooden Bolts from the corpse there.

6 Head back all the way back to the area with the fog door and go through it.
7 In the next room, go through the archway on your right to arrive at some stairs. Go down and bait the enemy below by running away. Enemies will throw bombs at the exploding barrels that will kill you if you are too close. Afterwards, kill all remaining enemies in the area.
8 Proceed along the next hallway and take out the enemies there, with one of the in the next room just nearby.
9 The way going right is sealed off by barricades where a merchant can be found. To the left is a balcony. Ignore these for now and move forward to some barrels. Move to the path on the left and take out the soldiers there.
10 Continue following the path that turns to the right and defeat another soldier just ahead. Afterwards, go up the stairs and take out the crossbowman. Get Unknown Soldier’s Soul from the corpse nearby.

5 Take out the group of enemies along the stairwell. Get Shard of Hardstone and Shard of Sharpstone from the corpses nearby.
6 Continue clearing the rest of the area, including any archers that are still around. You can head inside on of the rooms to get Unknown Hero’s Soul in the corner.
7 Return to the previous room near the group of knights but head left to find the Scimitar by going through an opening along the wall.
8 Head back to the balcony near the dead end blocked by barricades. Go near the low wall to jump across and down to the ground below.
9 Move along the corridor and through the narrow alley. Afterwards, help the knight (Ostrava) take out the enemies attacking him. Be sure to aim carefully to avoid hitting Ostrava.

14 Follow the path cleared of enemies until it stretches to the right. Go up the stairs and deal with the two spearmen.

Part 5

1 Clear out more enemies in the area. Afterwards, take the path straight ahead (the path on the left leads to some very useful items but are guarded by strong enemies).
2 Approach the bridge but get ready to run back as the dragon will kill everything on the straight path.
3 Wait for the dragon to go away and sprint cross the bridge again while ignoring the enemies along the way (the dragon will regularly return to attack the bridge again).

10 You can choose to head back to the Nexus to level-up your character with any souls you have accumulated (including soul items that you can consume) before facing the boss. Afterwards, warp back to Boletarian Palace and take the shortcut to the boss.
11 Defeat Phalanx (boss).


Isolate enemies from their allies.

A good strategy for systematically taking out groups of enemies is to pick them off one by one. Using advantageous terrain such as narrow pathways and stairs is a good method to funnel them to come at you in single file.


Phalanx can easily be defeated by using Firebombs because of its low resistance to fire, taking out multiple hoplites that surround its true body. You can also imbue your weapon with fire using Turpentine to fight it at melee range. Using magic, however, is the easiest method as Flame Toss and Soul Arrow innate to the Magician and Royalty classes respectively can kill the boss in just a few hits. Use Spices to heal MP if you run out.
