Head straight then through the entrance. You'll encounter Blige here with some new wares. Head furthern then step on the platform to open the door.
Your first encounter with the Grim Reaper. They summon shadows that attacks you but killing the Reaper dispels all of them. Head forward then fall at the edge then burst down the Reaper to get rid of all the shadows in the room.
This is one of the best soul farming area in the game.
After killing the reaper, step on the platform it was standing on to open the gate to the next area.
Optional After clearing the area, you can head inside instead of entering the newly opened gate to encounter Patches, the Hyena. If you follow his instructions and took a look at the hole, he'll push you and you'll meet Saint Urbain.
Optional 2 From a camera that's looking at opened gate perspective, head right to see an entrance to a staircase that leads up. There's an illusory wall here that leads to a Black Skeleton that can drop Pure Bladestones.
You can also scale the ledge to the left to find a White Bow and Arrow as well as a Crystal Lizard.
Enter the newly opened gate then follow the path. There are 2 batches of enemies 3 skeletons (1 archer) then 2 gold skeletons.
Pass through them to enter a narrow path that has ghosts that are again, summoned by grim reapers. Some of them can shoot soul rays so be wary of them.
After nearing the fog gate, there will be invisible ghosts that will try to ambush you, be on your guard.
To more identify the area, there are 2 lootable corpses on the opposite area (each corpse contains 1 Crescent Moon. A bait for the unwary.
Another section with narrow areas and ghosts that can shoot soul rays. You'll want to use Soul Remains to capture their attention then rush in for the kill.
Once you clear the area, the next one is a bright area with lots of floating wisp and shiny slugs.The wisps explode shortly after you come in contact with them while the slugs drop Shard of suckerstones and Sticky White Stuff
After this area is the home of the area's boss, the Old Hero.

② Grim Reaper Farming

The Grim Reaper in this area can easily be farmed. Dive into the fray, assassinate the Reaper, kill yourself by jumping off the ledge and repeat. Each run should give you around 5000 souls (without black world tendency) and a single run can be completed in less than 30 seconds. For more sould farming guide, refer to our guide below.

④ The 2 batches of Skeletons

skeletons 2 batches
You will trek through narrow pathways then there will be wide areas where the skeletons are stationed. It's not suggested to dive in and fight them while being outnumbered. Lure them one by one then fight them on the narrow path. You can parry them but the safest way is to block their attacks with a shield then counter with attacks.

⑤ Grim Reaper's Hiding Spot

Grim Reaper Hiding Spot
The Grim Reapers on these narrow areas like hiding behind these pillars and other dark places. Memorizing their locations can help ease your future runs since eliminating these reapers eliminates all the ghosts.

Tips Summary

Focus the Grim Reapers

The Grim Reapers dispels (or fails to maintain) all the existing souls it has summoned. It has a small HP pool and can easily be taken down in one or two hit.

Use Soul Remains to Distract the Souls

Using Soul Remains will prove useful especially in those narrow areas where the ghosts are positioned directly at the end of the pathway. You are an easy target with their soul laser so using something to distract them can allow you to jump on them and get the kill.
