List of Contents
|①||You will spawn at the entrance of Boletarian. There will be several Dreglings hiding on the barricades so approach them with caution.|
|②||After clearing the initial area, head left to find a gaping hole and an undead with a crossbow. Use your shield to block the arrow then make your way to the archer. Falling into the pit will result in instant death!|
|③||Proceed to the barracks and be prepared for ambushes. The area will be dark so putting your shield up and trekking slowly will be the key if you want to get through unscathed. You'll also want to use piercing moves as the area is cramped and will cause your attacks to bounce off the walls.|
|④||After clearing the barracks area, you will reach the first fog door guarded by two undead that use fire bombs. Move sideways to avoid the bombs while chipping away at their health with attacks to take them out.|
Head through the fog then slowly make your way up. Similar to the barracks, this area is dark with occasional enemies using firebombs from above. Move slowly and use your shield to survive.
Before reaching the topmost area, there will be an undead that will roll a boulder when you approach, immediately retreat when the boulder rolls down to avoid damage.
At the top, head right first (the path opposite to the area with the second fog door) and clear the enemies to avoid a potential pincer attack (do not head further and provoke the Red Eyes Knight). Head to the front of the fog then eliminate your first Blue Eyes Knight.
The knight can easily be dispatched by using ranged magic attacks or by using a Riposte.
|⑦||Before entering the fog, head to the opposite area from where you climbed then descend down the dark area. You will encounter Dreglings with flaming attacks and ignitable barrerls. Trek slowly and let them detonate the bomb themselves.|
After reaching the most bottom part, use the lever to reveal a shortcut for your next run then loot the nearby corpse to claim a Cling Ring.
The Cling Ring reduces the amount of health lost while in Soul Form. Extremely valuable if you don't want to shift the world's tendency to black by dying while in human form.
|⑨||Return to the fog area that was guarded by the Knight then infront of it lies an area you can drop. Do so and claim the crossbow. Return to the fog area to proceed to second half of this area.|
Upon this area lies a large hole that if you fall into, resulsts in an instant death! Instead, put up your shield and approach the enemies in the area slowly to avoid an accidental death.
Entering open doors like this will often result in death if approached carelessly. More often than not, enemies will lie in ambush in places like this. Use your shield then approach slowly to observe the area before making your move.
Before reaching the topmost area, the enemy will roll a boulder at you (potentially killing you if hit).
The path leading to a lever that unlocks a shortcut.
|①||After entering the second fog door, you can jump down on the ledge to aid Ostrava. After doing so, he will roam the area and will slay demons one by one. If he falls, he will be permanently gone so after aiding him, it is wise to stay with him until you clear the area.|
|②||Once you're done clearing the area, make your way back to the second fog then follow the path until you see a Dregling with a cross bow. Make your way there and defeat it then climb higher to encounter your third (second if you didn't help Ostrava) Blue Eyes Knight. Defeat it then enter the third fog.|
After entering the third fog door, hit the wooden cage at the end of your path to unleash several boulders. They will roll sideways and will eliminate all the threats along the path.
Make sure to not position your self infront of the boulders unless you want to experience an immediate death!
|④||You will also notice the dragon's roost with several charred bodies that can be looted. It will be hard to approach it now due to the dragon that's guarding it but achieving Pure White World Tendency in Boletaria will cause the dragons to disappear!|
|⑤||Head further until you find a bridge with several enemies. Do not dive in immediately! The dragon will appear and will use a breath attack against all the units in the bridge. Head slightly inside until you see the dragon leaving before you move on.|
|⑥||After getting through the bridge, head inside then activate the lever you'll find. This will cause the massive gate at the entrance to open up. This is also the area where you'll fight your first major demon (aside from the Vanguard which is a tutorial boss)|
|⑦||Delve in further. Look for the stacks of barrel and destory it to reveal a corpse where you can loot a Pine Resin. This will be really valuable against the area's boss.|
|⑧||Continue further in. The area will be dark so you'll want to use your shield a lot. You'll also encounter Hoplites that use spears to stab at you. They have a shield on their face so you should roll past them and attack from behind to kill them quickly|
|⑨||Reach the deepest area and use the Lever to unlock the second shortcut. This will also be an exit that leads straight to Boletaria's entrance. Before passing through the fog, prepare some firebombs and the Pine Resin as well as some grasses for an easier fight.|
The Dragon's Roost is home to several charred bodies. The dragons will use their breath at anyone that approaches and you're no exception. The dragon will disappear if you change the world's tendency to pure white. The roost is also home to the Ring of Great Strength and the Purple Flame Shield.
Beware when approaching these creatures. They have a shield in their head(?) and a spear that can easily poke you if you try to fight it upfront. It's weak to fire so use firebombs or roll past it and attack it from behind.
|1150||Lead Demon Soul Effects and How to Get|
|Use Firebombs and/or Pine Resin.|
Beware When Entering Closed Areas
Roll Through Barrels
Always Ready Your Shield
Make Sure to Get Pine Resin and Firebombs
Path to Executioner's Grounds
The Mausoleum Key
After clearing the starting area and entering the barracks, a Dregling will ambush you from the side. Always be careful when entering areas like this. You can approach slowly and slide the camera sideways to spot enemies hiding on the sides.
Instead of attacking barrels, you can roll through them to quickly get through the minor obstacle instead of wasting time attacking them.
Already mentioned on our Tutorial guide. Always raise your shield to avoid potential surprise attacks from enemies. Specially useful in dark areas.
Phalanx (the boss of the area) is extremely weak to fire attacks. Having some firebombs, a Pine Resin, and maybe even some fire spells will greatly aid you in the fight.
The Executioner's Grounds can only be accessible by having a pure world tendency (either black or white would work). Executioner Miralda in her human or black phantom form can be found here depending on the world tendency and several items can also be looted in the area.
The Mausoleum Key is used to open the door thas is behind the Red Eye Knight on the path near the 2nd Fog Gate. Old King Doran makes his home in this area and his challenge can be completed to gain Demonbrandt which doubles it's damage when you have pure white character tendency. He can also be slain to get the Ancient King's Set and the Eternal Warrior's Ring.
Ostrava can be encountered after entering the second fog. Instead of following the path, jump from the ledge to see him surrounded by a lot of Dreglings. Defeat them to save Ostrava. He can also potentially fall from the enemies so aiding him by clearing the enemies in the area guarantees his survival (for now).
Where to Find Ostrava of Boletaria
|Binded Armor Set, Master's Ring|
To make Executioner Miralda appear, the World tendency needs to be pure white.
Where to Find Executioner Miralda
Similar to the pure white world tendency, making Boletarian Palace reach pureblack world tendency will cause a black phantom version of Miralda appear.
|Crescent Moon Grass||100||Half Moon Grass||400|
|Fire Bomb||500||Soldier's Lotus||200|
|Short Spear||1500||Light Crossbow||2000|

The Dregling is your friendly merchant in the entirety of Boletarian Palce. His wares will also prove useful if you still haven't cleared the Phalanx since his items are the only things you can get with souls at this point in time.
