The entrance to this DLC is at the Shrine of Winter, which can be reached by taking the left path from the Ruined Fork Road bonfire in the Shaded Woods. When you interact with the shrine inside, you will be teleported to a snowy area. To your right is a set of stone slabs where players that don't have this DLC can place their summoning signs to be summoned to one of the DLC bosses.

In front of you is a big iron door that takes you to Frozen Eleum Loyce, which requires the Frozen Flower to open. Go up the stairs and light the first bonfire.

Head to the opening ahead, enter it then turn right. Down the stairs there will be a Rampart Soldier waiting, kill him and head through the doorway to find another one. On the left there is a body holding 4x Radiant Lifegem.

A third soldier will be attracted by the fighting noises and will come up the stairs to attack you, kill him and go down the stairs on the left. Another soldier will try to ambush you from the left, after killing him take the left exit (the other one is blocked for now).

Cross the path and kill the next soldier. Pick up 2x Goldenfruit Balm from the body and head outside. A soldier will come from the left to attack you, kill him and continue down the stairs.

At the bottom of the stairs,on the right, there is a yard with 3 Rampart Dogs and a body holding a Winged Spear +7. Continue down the main path and when you reach snow covered floor, turn left and pick up 5x Torch from the body near the edge.

Take the right path now, you will see ice boulders blocking the path to some bodies holding items, leave them for now as you can only reach those and many other items/chests later in this DLC. Continue ahead and you will see a frozen fountain on the left and a group of enemies.

After killing them there will be 2 more ahead waiting for you. Turn left and pick up 5x Small Blue Burr from the body. Back to the main path, go up the stairs on the left and kill the 2 soldiers there.

Enter the misty doorway on the left and go up the stairs. On the left there will be many crates, beware that behind them there is a group of enemies. Open the door behind those enemies and go up the stairs ahead. Kill the Rampart Spearman and the Soldier ahead.

Enter the building on the left and kill the weak enemy there. Break the crates and go down the icy path. Enter the cave on the right and kill the Rampart Lancer. Further ahead another Lancer will emerge from the snow. Pick up the Old Bell Helm from the body.

Go back and now enter the building on the right. Drop down to the lower level and light the bonfire.

There are two Golems in the yard outside. Up the ramp, kill the Golem and the Rampart Soldier by the stairs. A body next to a building contains 3x Lloyd's Talismans. Between the two buildings there is a path that leads to the snow bank above the fountain courtyard you came through before. If you follow it to the left, you can pick up a Ring of the Embedded. The right side will take you back above where you just came from, and this bank contains a corpse with the hex Dark Dance.
Drop down from the corpse with the hex and go up the stairs where you killed the soldier before. Keep following the stairs, ignoring the locked door on your right once you get to a tunnel, and you will see a Rampart Lancer guarding a big metal door. Kill it and pull the lever to open the door. A body nearby has 5x Radiant Lifegem.

Go through the door and turn right, going up the spiral stairs and giving the left path a wide berth. There will be a door leading to a room with a Soldier and several chests that are frozen, for now. Keep going up the stairs and kill the lancer on the landing. Follow the path through a tunnel on the left. You will find yourself on a huge walkway. Take the left path inside a building with several exits. Take another left. A soldier will attack you from the left, defeat him and enter his alcove to pull a lever that clears the path littered with boxes from when you first entered Eleum Loyce.

After opening the shortcut, head back outside. A Lancer will be waiting on your left, along with a corpse with 8x Green Blossom.
Down the stairs another soldier waits for you, kill it and enter the doorway behind it. Drop down and pick up a Crimson Water, and keep going down the stairs.

You will see a lit structure ahead and Elana will speak to you again as you approach it. Go up the stairs to get inside and pick up the Eye of the Priestess from the skeleton at the altar. This item will allow you to see the invisible enemies and bosses that exist in this DLC.

Outside this building turn right and go down the path leading left. Kill the warpick-wielding knight and the path ahead will be very straightforward. Along the way there are 2 bodies holding items, they are 5x Alluring Skull and a Skeptic's Spice.

Further ahead there is a fog door on the left, enter it and light the bonfire ahead.

Head right from the bonfire and pull the lever to open the door. The next room has 2 Rogue Sorcerers and two soldiers. Kill them and turn right after exiting the room. Go up the stairs, kill another soldier, and pick up 2x Dried Root.

You will be invaded by an NPC called Holy Knight Aurheim. However, he's hiding and wants you to find him first, so for now, go up the next set of stairs and kill the sorcerer and two soldiers up there. The three Frozen Golems in this room are surrounding a chest that contains the Curved Nil Greatsword. Enter the left doorway and go up more stairs.

You will see many barrels in this corridor, and one of them near the end is the invader in disguise. Open the chest at the end and pick up 10x Silver Talisman.

Enter the doorway on the right and go up the stairs. At the top drop down to the lower path and you will be in the first area of Frozen Eleum Loyce again. Turn left and enter the mist to fight the boss, Aava, the King's Pet.

After killing the boss, go through the doorway and up the stairs to enter the Grand Cathedral.

Finding the Eleum Loyce Knights

After visiting the Cathedral, you need to return to the Frozen Eleum Loyce to find the Knights that will assist you before the final boss fight. Remember that when going through these areas that the ice have been melted a lot of places meaning that there will be a lot of loot available from unfrozen chests, the Retainer Rogues will get up and fight you and enemies killed near the Frozen Giants will wake them up and attack you(like the doors and giants in Drangleic Castle).

  • From the Outer Wall bonfire go to the frozen fountain area. Go straight ahead from the fountain, through the archway and down the small set of stairs ahead. You will need to cross the destroyed bridge by going all the way down to the ground and come back up on the other side.

    Enter the building on the right by the destroyed bridge and step on the elevator. At the bottom go outside and kill the three Rampart Hedgehog that are next to the two corpses with loot. Go left through the archway to an area with a lot of small pillars. Rampart Hedgehogs will be lying in wait as well as some corpses with loot. Keep to the left and you are now in a big open area with several Hedgehogs. Three Witchtrees will be attacking you from the walkway above and you will get invaded by the red phantom Hexer Nicholai. Keep to the right in this area and you will find a ladder going up on the right wall just before the huge metal gate.

    Go up the ladder and loot the chest nearby. You can enter the building near the chest, this is where you need to go, but if you backtrack along the walkway you will find another building with the Lower Garrison bonfire. Go inside the building near the ladder and the chest from before and up the stairs. You will see a white phantom. He will pretend to be friendly until he gets a chance to backstab you! Get rid of him and go up the stairs until you see a ledge outside. Go there an pull the lever. Drop down and go through the huge gates.

    At the bottom of the cave kill the white Covetous Demon and take the exit on the far right. A couple of Rampart Hedgehog are waiting for you in the tunnel. The end of the tunnel splits into two, the left leads to a door that serves as a shortcut and the right leads to an outside area with several Rampart Hedgehogs and four sleeping Frozen Giants. Go through the area, into the doorway at the end and step on the elevator. You are now on the other side of the destroyed bridge!

    If you turn left when leaving the building with the elevator you can fight three Rampart Golems (can kill/damage them with enviroment if you take the other path first) for Azal's Staff and some loot at the end of the bridge. Go up the hill, you will encounter a few Hedgehogs and Golems on the way to the top. In front of the door is a snow ball you can hit that will roll down the hill over the bridge and cover the hole in the middle of the bridge, opening a shortcut and damaging golems. (why would one need this shortcut is still news to me) Open the door at the building at the top of the hill and you will have freed one of the Loyce Knights.
  • From the Abandoned Dwelling bonfire go outside and up the snowy ramp on the left and up the stairs at the end. Go through the doorway on the left at the end of the walkway(You will now be at the short bridge with a Rampart Golem and the lever that opened the metal door was). Turn right, passing the circular room and go up the spiral stairs. If this is the first time you pass through this area after melting the ice you can enter the door before the spiral stairs to a circular room. There is a Rampart Soldier in here with several chests that can now be looted. Watch out as one of them is a Mimic!

    At the top of the spiral stairs there are three paths to take. This first is to the left, the one you took the first time you went through this area. If you take this left path, go left in the small building as before and then right you will reach a tower. Opening the door you will find several dogs and a corpse with some loot. Going around the outside of tower will lead to a ladder (invisible without the Eye of the Priestess). Climb this ladder to access the upper floor of the tower which contains a chest with the Splintering Lightning Spear miracle. The second is to the right and have two enemies stading by ballistas and a Pharros Contraption at the end. Activate the Pharros Contraption in order to access Durgo's Hat via an illusory wall directly to the Contraption's left. The third is straight ahead, take that one to get to the Knight. Go down the stairs and kill the Lancer. Exit the building, turn left and go down the stairs. Watch out since the two Rampart Soldier across the courtyard might be shooting at you.
    Enter the building, you will now be in a long hallway with wooden floors that have a lot of holes. There will be two Rampart Soldier and a Rampart Spearman in the hallway plus a third Rampart Soldier on the second balcony on the right(He can be sniped from the first balcony, which you can get to by simply running across the hallway when you enter. At the end of the hallway you will be in a small room with two ladders, one going down and one going up. Going up the ladder leads to a small room with a door you can open for a shortcut(the door at the small bridge that is just before the circular room with the chests and the spiral staircase).
  • From the shortcut-door go down the ladder and down the next one as well. A Rampart Spearman will be waiting at the bottom. From where the Spearman was standing you can snipe a Rampart Soldier that is standing on the wooden floor in the hallway on the level below. Continue down the next ladder where a Rampart Golem will be waiting. Go down the hallway, to the left is a balcony with a corpse holding Ring Of Resistance +1 and to the right is a ladder leading down to the ground floor of the building. Four Rampart Stray Dog will come running to attack you just as you step off the ladder. Be careful not to run too much around in the hallway when fighting the dogs as three more dogs lie in wait in the opposite end of the hallway(the end where you originally entered the building). The small room where the dogs came from have a chest with some loot. Run to the end of the hallway(opposite end of the small room with the chest) and dispatch the three dogs. Go through the winding hallway that leads back outside.

    Follow the walkway past the building with the elevator(this leads back after you have freed the Loyce Knight). Before the end of the walkway you will be invaded by Castaway Witch Donna. Kill her and dispatch the Rampart Golem that waits at the end. Open the door and you will have freed one of the Loyce Knights.


  • Travel to the Inner Wall bonfire. This entire next section will be littered with slumbering Frozen Giants. These will come to life and attack you if an enemy is killed near them, so either kite the enemies away from the Giants or be ready when you wake one up.

    Go down the hallway to the room with the 2 Retainer Sorcerers and several Rampart Soldiers. There is also two Frozen Giants and two chests in this room(Watch out, one is a Mimic!). Turn right and go up the stairs and up the next set of stairs. You are now in the room with 3 slumbering Frozen Giants in the center, two Rampart Spearman and a Retainer Sorcerer that will attack as soon as you reach the top of the second set of stairs. If you don't want to wake up the giants you can kite the Spearmen and Sorcerer down the stairs and kill them in the big empty room.

    From the three giants go down the path that was blocked by ice earlier, you will now be in a long hallway with 2 sleeping Frozen Giants, a Retainer Sorcerer and a Rampart Soldier. At the end of the hallway turn right and the door on the left leads to the Loyce Knight. Passing by that door is a corridor with loot by the end and a secret wall to its right side in the middle. The stairs behind the Loyce Knight lead to a shortcut to the Grand Cathedral.
