Notes & Trivia:

  • 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.
  • This area is one of the highest chance of being invaded while in human form.
  • Black Knight Armor Set can be found on a body on the right side after you get to the Kiln's framework. Near the third Black Knight in the area
  • 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.
