Bonfire to Bonfire

1. Exiting the stone corridor from Majula into the FFG cross the first bridge and exit the tunnel. Go directly to the right into the river, follow the river down heading towards the Hollows, while following the river down there will be a small duct off area on from the right of the river; this is your first bonfire in FFG.

2. Head directly from BF1 across the river onto the road again, from here head further down towards fallen tree acting as bridge, crossing the river towards the Hollow that is shooting arrows to his left will be a ladder, head up the ladder; from here we will head into the fog door near the far left of the giant tree, follow this path either heading into the broken wall or taking a left at the end of the walkway, you will come to a set of stairs heading up with a hollow archer, follow the ladder up past the hollow archer, BF2 is inside the metal door to your right of this area along with a merchant.

2(A). Head down the ladder from BF2, head towards the door to your left and into the fog wall, go up the fallen tree to the top of the wall, you will see lots a wooden barricades up here, at the end of the walkway right before the stairs heading down to a lower section stop here. Before the stairs look from the left corner at the wall you will see a large amount of boxes and barrels, using any flame weapon or exsplosive you can destroy this wall by attacking the barrels gaining another access point to BF2.

2(B). From the area of the wall you broke to gain another access point to BF2, follow this path down the set of stairs, go down the ladder, head towards the Turtle knight and enter the doorway he was guarding. From here follow the path heading towards the large fallen stone sword thats acts a bridge of sorts, and enter the door opposite the giant sword to the left, you will come back to the area with the closed gate heading up to BF2, you can now open the door allowing easier access to this room and BF2.

3. From BF2 head down the ladder and into the room that connects toarea with 3 rooftops you must travers, before entering the room with the rooftops there is a door on your right, open this door and follow this path all the way down turning left to another door, open this door and walk across the wooden planks, staying on the grass ledge in front of the building, you can jump to the other side of this area or go through the hole in the building near the large wooden gate, on this side of the area there is another building with a large hole in its wall, inside is BF3 the last bonfire in FFG.

(C) Lure him into attacking you and wreck him with some good ole soul arrow.

Salamander Pit Loot
Firstly, to access this area there is about 3 ways.
