Large Flame Ember Location

  • This ember is in a chest at the end of a hallway on the left, near the entrance to the Demon Firesage, and the shortcut to Lost Izalith.
  • As you descend the stairs past the fire-breathing clay statues, you will see a Taurus Demon on a path to the left. Defeat it, and then defeat second one behind it to gain access to the hallway. Be wary, a centipede Demon pops out of the roof and will grapple you (typically a 1-shot). Defeat it and then dash to the chest. 4 more centipedes will spawn from the roof and create a deadly trap, your best bet is to run past, get the ember and use the homeward bone to escape. Otherwise bring a bow and lots of (heavy) arrows. Also, for the arrow-tactic on the other hand, it is best to sneak through the hallway, as on that you will have left enough space between you and the worms every time. Even in the 4-worm death trap. Another option is to use a spear, as they have enough range to hit the worms without triggering their attacks.
  • Bring a homeward bone, it makes the return process much easier

        i haven't leveled my weapons to fire or divine or chaos or anything like that, only the normal weapon levels. so i heard o+s are weak to fire, and i want to know do i need this ember to just level my greatsword to +5 fire? i don't need to level it up to +10 fire, but i just needed to know if i need an ember to level it up to regular ol' +5 fire.

          A cheesy alternative method is simply using poison arrows. Two arrows are enough to poison them and take 95% of their life. It's just a matter of patience.

            Alternative method for dealing with the centipede demons is to get a Dragon great sword ( Two handed if required ). Upgrade it BEFORE you get the ember. Lure your self into the trap then use the dragon great swords mystical two hand power and watch them goes down like flies. Make sure you upgrade the sword though!
