  • Five Black Knights, with different weapon configurations (axe, sword, spear, etc.). - Note that contrary to the other Black Knights in the game, these do respawn and also drop different Upgrade Materials, making this a good place to farm.
  • First Black Knight drops Titanite Chunk, second drops Red Titanite Chunk, third drops Titanite Chunk, fourth drops White Titanite Chunk, and the last, fifth one drops Blue Titanite Chunk.



After defeating Gwyn, you have two options available;

  1. Touch the bonfire for the "good" ending and the To Link the Fire Achievement/Trophy.
  2. Walk away and leave the area for the "evil" ending and the Dark Lord achievement/Trophy.



  • If you have defeated Gwyn and touch the bonfire (or either leave the area) the game ends without a warning and you will be thrown into a New Game Plus! So if you want to do some stuff before finishing the game (farming, questing, optional bosses and areas) do it BEFORE killing Gwyn. See our guide on New Game Plus for a comprehensive checklist of things to do before completing a cycle.
  • Area is known for high level PVP as it is only available to those who have killed a majority of the bosses.
