Where to Find Primeval Demons | Demon's Souls PS5

Where to Find Primeval Demons

List of Primeval Demon Locations

World Location
1-3: Tower Knight Archstone Backtrack from the boss room and up the stairs on the left
2-1: Stonefang Tunnel Down the elevator next to the first building you enter
3-2: Fool's Idol Archstone On a cliffside in the swamp area
4-2: Adjudicator Archstone Through the Illusory Door along the cliffside past the Crystal Lizard
5-2: Leechmonger Archstone In the deepest area of the swamp

1-3: Penetrator Archstone

Map Location

In the third area of Boletarian Palace, you can find the Primeval Demon on top of a building near the boss arena. It's closer to the fourth Archstone, but the pathway to it includes three Red Eye Knights on top of other enemies so going from the third archstone is the safer option.

Map Location

The Primeval Demon in Stonefang Tunnel can be found at the bottom of the canyon accessed from the elevator in the first building you enter.

4-2: Adjudicator Archstone

Map Location

You can find the Primeval Demon in the Adjudicator Archstone area of the Shrine of Storms. From the Archstone, take the left-side door in the room with the reaper to the illusory wall and follow the cliffside towards the Crystal Lizard.

5-2: Leechmonger Archstone

Map Location

For the Valley of Defilement's Primeval Demon you'll need to head all the way to the back of the swamp in the Adjudicator Archstone. It can be difficult to traverse the bog so we recommend picking up the Sodden Ring in the Tower of Latria if you're having trouble.

Increase Your Drop Rate

In the PS3 version of the game there was a chance that Primeval Demons wouldn't drop a Colourless Demon Soul. In our experiences so far with the remake, they've dropped every time, but just in case you're worried you should bring equipment that can raise your Luck and Item Discovery.

Equipment That Raises Luck

Killing a Primeval Demon is one method of changing your World Tendency to White. Be sure to complete any desired events that occur during Pure Black World Tendency before killing one.
