Full Cave of the Dead Walkthrough

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

How to get there:

Enter Dragon's Sanctum (after the bridge with the 2 Sanctum Knights guarding it) and once inside it turn left and you will see a locked door. Use the Eternal Sanctum Key to open it. Kill the 2 Sanctum Priestess inside and open the chests to obtain: 10x Dried Root and a Lightning Clutch Ring . (also an ideal location for farming Sanctum Priestess Tiara)

Go up the carved ladder on the left wall in the end of the room, up the stairs and up the next ladder. As you step out of the ladder 3 Corrosive Egg Bugs will drop from the ceiling, kill them and go up the ladder straight ahead. There will be a chest containg a Sanctum Shield .

Go back down and go to the bridge on the left. At the end of the bridge you will be invaded by Rockshield Baldyr . Kill him and light the Priestess' Chamber bonfire . Hit the obelisk at the entrance of the cave to activate the elevator nearby. Use the elevator and roll/jump when you see a ledge. On the right is a body that has 5x Torch . Go to the other side and follow the path going down around the building, enter the doorway and open the chest for the Hex Dark Greatsword. Alternately, you can access this area after killing the boss in Cave of the Dead.

Homeward back to the bonfire and enter the cave and at the end of the corridor there will be a fog gate. Cross it to enter the Cave of the Dead. Drop down the ledge and if you are human, you will see 2 NPC summon signs, Rapacious Andrei and Ruined Aflis . Drop down the next ledge and you will find a room with 3 Sanctum Soldiers, many Petrifying Statues and some holes in the ground. Kill the enemies and drop down from the second hole on the right.

You will be in a room FULL of Peftrifying Statues, some Poison Statue Clusters and some Sanctum Soldiers. Navigation is hard, but there is only one exit in the room, the hole mentioned for the player to drop in this walkthrough is the closest one to the exit. In the room there is a metal chest that holds 3x Petrified Something , a body holding 2x Brightbug and a body holding 3x Bonfire Ascetic .
NOTE: It appears that if you kill the Petrify Statue Clusters to their spawn limit, the last one will drop a Promised Walk of Peace hex. (needs confirmation)

When you find the exit drop down fom the ledge. This new room has 3 Poison Statue Clusters, several Petrifying Statues, a Giant Worm and 3 Sanctum Soldiers. After killing all these, enter the fog gate for the Boss fight with Graverobber, Varg, and Cerah .

Killing these bosses will give you 3x Twinkling Titanite , 3x Petrified Dragon Bone and a Titanite Slab . Go to the opposite side of the entrance of the room and you will find a chest containing a Flower Skirt and a body holding 3x Blackweed Balm . To exit you can use a Homeward Bone or Aged Feather or fall down the hole in the end, you will drop in the area where the Dark Greatsword hex is.

From here go back to the body that had the Torches and jump to the platform below. From the platform roll down to the entrance of the building, take the elevator and you are back at the bonfire.
