Dungeon Walkthrough

After reaching the destination marked on the map, you will see a closed door that you need to open. Open it and go down to the Grace website. Interact with Grace and make sure you have the The flame cleans me (spell) with you. This is a must spell for this Catacomb as most of the areas inside are heavily filled with Scarlet Rot. Go down the stairs and enter the first room.


Here you have to cross the scarlet rot and kill the poison flowers. Collect Glove of the Graves [4] from this room and head to the next area. There will be a Skeleton waiting to ambush you on the left, so beware of that. Kill him and loot him Glove of the Graves [3].

Go forward to reach a new room with stairs going down.

Go down the stairs and backtrack. Hit the wall in the right corner to reveal an illusory wall, behind which you will find x3 Glove of the Graves [5] and Miranda Sprout Ashes. Turn around and face the three poison flowers and a Giant poison flower. After killing the giant flower, collect serious violet, Glove of the Graves [3]and Glove of the Graves [4].

Go through the door and down the stairs to reach another room where there is a pillar in the middle surrounded by Scarlet Rot. Recover x3 Ghost Gauntlet [4] and go to the back of the pillar.

Here you’ll see a wall that you can hit with your melee weapon, revealing another illusory wall. Behind is the lever which, when activated, opens the door of the heavy door. Go forward and go through the door to reach the boss door.

Graveyard Shadow Boss Fight

Cemetery Shade is the boss at the end of Caelid Catacombs. It has the same attacks as the Shading the graveyard you fight in the Weeping Peninsula. Graveyard Shadow doesn’t have many attacks, but he can teleport towards or away from you. This forces the boss to dictate the pace of the fight. If you attack the boss continuously, he can teleport and throw his green orb which can stun you, dealing serious damage.

However, the boss has a lot of weaknesses. The graveyard shadow doesn’t have much health. A few hits with a highly upgraded weapon can take him out quickly. The boss is also extremely easy to parry. If the parry succeeds, you can land a critical hit that will take a large chunk of his health bar.
