Brume Tower Walkthrough

A full walkthrough including all the items, enemies and bosses goes here. You can add links, images. and other details. 

To enter the DLC, you need to go to the primal bonfire in Iron Keep and examine the obelisk that is in the room after the bonfire. You will be teleported to a new area.

Here you will see some stairs going up and a room on each side. The side rooms can be used by players that don't have the DLC, they can place their summon signs there and be summoned into the Iron Passage or the Memory of the Old Iron King (random). Go up the stairs and open the big door with the Heavy Iron Key.

Right in front of you will be the Throne Floor bonfire, light it and keep going forward.

As soon as you reach an ash covered area after some stairs, an Ashen Idol will emerge. If you want, you can get close to it to examine it, use the Smelter Wedge to destroy it and pick up the Soul of Nadalia, Bride of Ash (fragment) it drops, however, its recommended that you leave this Idol intact till the end of the DLC. The reason is because this Idol is very easy to come back to, since its so close to the first bonfire, and if you want go straight to the main boss, you will need this Smelter Wedge for one of the Idols that keeps healing the boss. You can later get more wedges and return here to destroy the idol and get the fragment of the Soul of Nadalia.

Go down the stairs on the left side (the stairs on the right) and pick up a Dexterity Ring. Go back up and down the doorway ahead. Down the stairs and drop to the elevator, then drop again to the round platform. Pick up 2x Old Growth Balm from the body and again to the level below.

Optional Content in Brume Tower

The guide above focused on the essential and on loot that doesn't take the player too far away from the main objective, but Brume Tower has more areas to explore and more items to get.

It's recommended to explore these areas wearing the Hollow Skin, because two of them inflict curse and this head gear gives the player 1000 curse resist, and before killing the Fume Knight so other players can be summoned to help.

Hollow Skin: After placing the Scorching Iron Scepter next to the Foyer bonfire, take the elevator up, step out and go to the next elevator going up. As soon as you step on the elevator move close to the front wall and keep pressing the "interact" button as it goes up. When it comes down an illusory wall will be open, roll into that room and open the chest that contains the Hollow Skin.

Baneful Bird Ring: This ring is close to the first bonfire of Brume Tower, but its only reachable after the Scorching Iron Scepter has been placed near the Foyer bonfire. Teleport to the first bonfire and look around, you will see a body with an item and a blocked path. Now that the elevators are working wait for the elevator nearby to come up and jump/roll to it. From the elevator walk to the landing where the body is and pick up the ring.

4x Smelter Wedge and Dispelling Ring +1: From the Foyer bonfire take the elevator going up and the next elevator going up. At the top go right and open the door at the end. Kill the Possessed Armor (exploding the Barrel Carrier nearby is the easiest way), in one of the little room on the right is a body that has 15x Lacerating Knife, pick that up and go up the stairs. Kill the Possessed Armor here and make one of the Barrel Carriers go to the fire the head is spitting, the explosion will break the wall and reveal a body holding the Dispelling Ring +1.

Pilgrim's Spontoon: From the Upper Floor bonfire go to the circular room with the elevators. Enter the room and turn right, wait for the elevator to be on its way up and drop to it. Let it go up and when its going down, let is pass the platform you were in initially and roll to the next one, a smaller one, enter the doorway and open the chest to pick up the Pilgrim's Spontoon. ( location video)

Life Ring +3: From the Upper Floor bonfire go to the circular room with the elevators. Enter the room and turn right, wait for the elevator to be on its way up and drop to it. Then quickly walk across to next ledge. Open the metal door and kill the Iron Warrior in that room.

Simpleton's Ring: From the Upper Floor bonfire go to the circular room with the elevators. Enter the room and turn right, wait for the elevator to be on its way up and drop to it. When it is near the top walk into the passage to enter a room with a minotaur statue spitting fire. The statues will spin 360 degrees if hit. Kill the 2 Possessed Armor there. There is a body with loot under the fire, picking it up is very risky, it's 5x Old Radiant Lifegem. Go around the statue and roll under the fire. Open the metal door and walk to the ledge to pick up the Simpleton's Ring from the body.

Majestic Greatsword: From the Foyer bonfire turn left, go past the metal door and up the stairs on the left, kill the Ashen Warrior and go down the stairs on the right. Cross the chain and you will be invaded by Maldron the Assassin, this NPC will try to escape down the stairs when its health is low. Down there is an Ashen Idol that will heal it an buff it, so try to kill him as quickly as possible. Open the chest in the end for 2x Bonfire Ascetic. Equip the Hollow Skin before going down the stairs, since the Ashen Idol keeps this place cursed. Go down the stairs and 2 Ashen Warriors will emerge in the circular structure in the middle, and a Possessed Armor will attack you as soon as you are in range. You can't kill the Armor because of the Idol in the bottom, it will keep bringing it back to life. The best to do is to run to the bottom and destroy the idol so you can kill the enemies there. A body in the stairs at the start holds 5x Silver Talisman. In the 2nd round structure in the middle is a body holding a Alonne Greatbow+5. Don't forget to pick up the Soul of Nadalia, Bride of Ash (fragment) from where the Ashen Idol was.

Pyromancy Fire Snake: From the Foyer bonfire turn left and open the metal door on the left with the Tower Key, this is another cursed area, so wear the Hollow Skin.

As soon as you go down the stairs, 2 Ashen Warriors will greet you, kill them and go down the next stairs, kill the Ashen Warrior and turn left, an Ashen Warrior and a Possessed Armor will emerge. Quickly open the door on the left and destroy the Ashen Idol, now you can kill them. Pick up the Soul of Nadalia, Bride of Ash (fragment) and the 5x Large Titanite Shard from the body in the altar outside. Go to the other end of the corridor, enter the room on the right and open the chest for the pyromancy Fire Snake. Go up the stairs and turn right.

Continue through this path, kill the 2 Ashen Warriors waiting on the left and the 2 Possessed Armor at the end (again, exploding the barrels or the carriers nearby is the easiest way), in the end of this corridor on the left there is a chest that has the 4x Smelter Wedge.

Pilgrim's Spontoon: From the Upper Floor bonfire go to the circular room with the elevators. Enter the room and turn right, wait for the elevator to be on its way up and drop to it. Let it go up and when its going down, let is pass the platform you were in initially and roll to the next one, a smaller one, enter the doorway and open the chest to pick up the Pilgrim's Spontoon. ( location video)

Life Ring +3: From the Upper Floor bonfire go to the circular room with the elevators. Enter the room and turn right, wait for the elevator to be on its way up and drop to it. Then quickly walk across to next ledge. Open the metal door and kill the Iron Warrior in that room. Open the 4th door and use a Smelter Wedge to destroy the Ashen Idol, pick up the Soul of Nadalia, Bride of Ash (fragment) and open the chest in the end of the room to pick up the Life Ring +3.

Open the first door near the chest and pick up 5x Flame Butterfly from the body, then break the crates and walk around the ledge they were hiding for 3x Titanite Chunk and a Titanite Slab.

Open the door right of the one where the Ashen Idol was and there will be 3 bodies with loot, they hold 10x Titanite Shard, a Petrified Something and a Broadsword +7. The other door has nothing behind it.

Simpleton's Ring: From the Upper Floor bonfire go to the circular room with the elevators. Enter the room and turn right, wait for the elevator to be on its way up and drop to it. When it is near the top walk into the passage to enter a room with a minotaur statue spitting fire. The statues will spin 360 degrees if hit. Kill the 2 Possessed Armor there. There is a body with loot under the fire, picking it up is very risky, it's 5x Old Radiant Lifegem. Go around the statue and roll under the fire. Open the metal door and walk to the ledge to pick up the Simpleton's Ring from the body.

Majestic Greatsword: From the Foyer bonfire turn left, go past the metal door and up the stairs on the left, kill the Ashen Warrior and go down the stairs on the right. Cross the chain and you will be invaded by Maldron the Assassin, this NPC will try to escape down the stairs when its health is low. Down there is an Ashen Idol that will heal it an buff it, so try to kill him as quickly as possible. Open the chest in the end for 2x Bonfire Ascetic. Equip the Hollow Skin before going down the stairs, since the Ashen Idol keeps this place cursed. Go down the stairs and 2 Ashen Warriors will emerge in the circular structure in the middle, and a Possessed Armor will attack you as soon as you are in range. You can't kill the Armor because of the Idol in the bottom, it will keep bringing it back to life. The best to do is to run to the bottom and destroy the idol so you can kill the enemies there. A body in the stairs at the start holds 5x Silver Talisman. In the 2nd round structure in the middle is a body holding a Alonne Greatbow+5. Don't forget to pick up the Soul of Nadalia, Bride of Ash (fragment) from where the Ashen Idol was. At the bottom of the tower is a chest that holds the Majestic Greatsword, but as soon as you get near the chest 2 Ashen Warriors will emerge.

Pyromancy Fire Snake: From the Foyer bonfire turn left and open the metal door on the left with the Tower Key, this is another cursed area, so wear the Hollow Skin.

As soon as you go down the stairs, 2 Ashen Warriors will greet you, kill them and go down the next stairs, kill the Ashen Warrior and turn left, an Ashen Warrior and a Possessed Armor will emerge. Quickly open the door on the left and destroy the Ashen Idol, now you can kill them. Pick up the Soul of Nadalia, Bride of Ash (fragment) and the 5x Large Titanite Shard from the body in the altar outside. Go to the other end of the corridor, enter the room on the right and open the chest for the pyromancy Fire Snake. Go up the stairs and turn right. The room on the left has a wooden chest that holds 3x Old Radiant Lifegem.

2x Brightbug: From the Foyer bonfire take the elevator up, on the way up jump to the first landing you see. Follow that path and shortly you will see a Crystal Lizard, kill it and pick up 3x Twinkling Titanite and 3x Titanite Chunk/1x Titanite Slab. Open the metal chest ahead and pick up 2x Brightbug.

      The 5x Silver Talisman and the Alonne Greatbow +5 found on the way to the Majestic Greatsword were removed in the Scholar of The First Sin edition.

        UPDATE TO: Optional stuff in Brume Tower29 Aug 2016 10:59  

        See: Section that begins with Life Ring +3....in first paragraph writer states: enter 4th door to deal w/Ashen Idol.....it's actually the 3rd door. Error in information as you know, could get player/gamer killed needlessly. Still, serious credit to the writer for putting this all together:)

        • Bottom of the Tower with the Majestic Greatsword (Sotfs)29 Aug 2016 10:59  

          Not two, but three Ashen Warriors emerge when you go down. The third one caught me off guard and let me, once again, to my death.

            There are Catarine Gloves and Leggings in the room just after the Foyer bonfire. In the area with the large room blocked by switch controlled gates there is a destructible wall at the end of the hallway with 2 Fume sorcerers. The hollows that carry blackpowder kegs can be scared into the area and then blown up to destroy the wall.

            • Outside platform with three Iron Warriors29 Aug 2016 10:59  

              This Guide states that you should ignore the barrel carriers before you step outside, however if you plan on fighting and evading the Iron Warrior you might accidentally awaken the other two, making it a 3 vs 1 fight that can turn pretty rough. If you want to use the room inside as a retreat I suggest killing the barrel carriers because they might blow you up when you retreat from fighting the warrior. Happened to me earlier today. Had I not ignored them, I could have lived.

                How to beat tough area with Flame Quartz ring +329 Aug 2016 10:59  

                Never edited but saw this was missing in the walkthrough. You can scare the barrel carrying enemies to fall down through the trapdoors. They will roam around and explode near the big guy if he spews fire on them. Only takes 2 explosions. <br/> <br/>It took me a while (just standing there, one life), but the trick is to move away from the ladder, otherwise they'll go to a corner as they run from you. Maybe I was lucky but you can always go back to the bonfire and try again without killing yourself.
