Lower Undead Burg Walkthrough
Welcome to the Lower Undead Burg!
Down Below - Earlier in the Upper Undead Burg on Hellkite bridge, after defeating the Taurus Demon and right before confronting the Bridge Wyvern, there was a locked door. Having found the Basement Key in the Undead Parish, this door is now accessible (NOTE: If you have not disposed of the Wyvern yet, you may need to travel to the bonfire in Undead Burg by using the shortcut under the bridge; don't worry, we'll be unlocking two new short-cuts promptly, so this longer route will be a one-time inconvenience). Entering the door will lead down some stairs and to a long ladder. Upon reaching the outdoors, take the upward stairs on your right to open a gate at the top. This a shortcut between Upper Undead Burg and Lower Undead Burg.
New Friends - Head back down to where you were and head down the stairs on your right beside the big fire. Here you will need to prepare yourself as you will have your first encounter with Undead Attack Dogs; they are very pacey and are venomous, however do not have a lot of health. Lure all three of them (one at a time) while remaining on the stairs, for the most effective method of combating them. Head all the way down until you are standing next to a well, facing a door. The first door on the right will hold someone asking for help; accessible with the Residence Key. Inside you will find Griggs of Vinheim (A sorcery trainer who will sell a variety of useful sorceries when he's back in Firelink Shrine). To his right is a corpse in a barrel, destroy the barrel and pillage the corpse to acquire the Sorcerer Set and Sorcerer's Catalyst. Head left, down the alley to find find a new enemy – or should I say a few - the Torch Hollow. There are a total of 7 (two on the left, 5 on the right); luring them one at a time, as for most enemies in this game, is the best strategy. Heading right will lead to a corpse with Twin Humanities, and a dead end.
Counter-Attack - Head back until you reach a wagon you should destroy, the extra space will be useful for what's to come. Past the wagon you will see three closed doors, one on either side of you and another ahead. As you continue forward, they'll open and three Undead Assassins will leap out for an ambush (NOTE: Be sure to watch out for their throwing knives, and countering ability). In one of the rooms on the right you will find a corpse holding a Mail Breaker. Head back out to the alleyway and follow it until you come across some grass but refrain from stepping on the grass just yet, as it will trigger three Undead Assassins to jump out the buildings ahead for another ambush. Instead, first deal with the two Undead Attack Dogs further down the alley that you can lure; if only one of engages you, just keep in mind that there is another roaming ahead.
On the left in a small arched corridor you will find a corpse in a barrel with a Large Soul of a Lost Undead. In one of the assassin's rooms on the right, you will find a corpse with the Thief Set and a Target Shield. Continue down the alley until you come to the fog gate. Behind it is the area's boss. However, we are taking a little detour.
Easy Access - Take a right at the fog gate and travel down the stairs. You will see an Undead Assassin waiting in the distance, before engaging him it's best to engage/lure the one around the corner on the left, hoping to catch you off-guard. After taking care of them, head to the very end where you will be met with a large gate and aLarge Soul of a Lost Undead on a corpse. Behind you now will be a door on your left that will grant you access to the Depths, but it's currently locked. So we want to head up the stairs on the right, leading into a building. Climb the spiral staircase where you will encounter an Undead Archer about halfway up. Continue upwards until the staircase is blocked with debris, and make a right to find yourself back in the aqueduct. On your right is the Undead Merchant (Female) that sells a variety of items, including moss. Continue along the aqueduct and open the gate to unlock a shortcut to Firelink Shrine.
The Goatman - Head back to the fog gate we dodged earlier to continue on your quest. BE WARNED, as soon as you enter the fog gate you will be attacked by two Undead Attack Dogs and the big boss; be sure to dispose of the dogs early so you can focus your efforts on the Capra...
Boss fight: Capra Demon
NOTE: When you return to Lower Undead Burg, be aware of the fact that there will now be four Undead Attack Dogs where the Fog Gate was. Once you dispose of the boss you will obtain the Key to the Depths, with which you will be able to continue your quest. Make your way toward the locked door we found earlier on near the Lower Undead Burg / Firelink Shrine short-cut to go to the Depths.

I'm so stuck where the f is blighttown
Worse than blighttown.
Oh? Is that a pack of filthy hounds charging towards me? But I don't panic, I grab my mighty WINGED SPEAR and quickly dispatch them from a distance before they even get a chance to attack. The mighty WINGED SPEAR proves once more its superiority.
At SL1 I could invade players up till 21 but couldn’t find any here and on my SL33 I could invade down to level 30 but i only got a few invasions so my best guess is that most players are here at around level 25 or they’re simply hollow because there’s no bonfire in the lower burg
0 poise means death Can't even swing my zwei Without being ****ed by dogs.
What’s the best melee weapon for a first play through as a mage to put magic on? I’m using a +5 broadsword but don’t know if I should add magic when I find the right material. Also using spear thing I got with the mage outfit over in the valley of the drakes. Any help would be greatly appreciated
Theresa is no map of the Power burg
