Full Anor Londo Walkthrough

Blades of the Darkmoon Covenant

To find the Blades of the Darkmoon covenant, return to the rotating platform and go down the spiral steps to the platform that appears to now lead nowhere. Step off to walk onto an invisible bridge and head right to drop off onto a tower. Light the Bonfire here and walk to the left to meet Company Captain Yorshka, leader of the Blades of the Darkmoon. If you enter this tower you can drop down the plank ledges carefully to reach a beam with the Painting Guardian's Curved Sword. Drop down a few more ledges to find the Painting Guardian Set. Drop down the rest of the way to come into the bonfire room in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley. Port back to the bonfire in Anor Londo to continue your journey.

Opening the Main Gate

From the Bonfire, walk up the staircase towards the castle. As you ascend the stairs there are two silver knights who will attack you. Deal with them and just to the left at the top of the stairs you will find Large Soul of a Weary Warrior 1x, then head to the right where you will encounter a red eyed Silver Knight. Loot a corpse here for Soul of a Crestfallen Knight 1x. Continue left and enter the open door where the dead giant blacksmith lies and in his hand find the Giant's Coal and then continue up the stairs, into the dark main chamber. Turn right and look over the ledge and you can see the fog gate where the boss awaits.

Continue down the stairs but be wary of the pyromancers casting fireballs from the other side. Near them is a corpse with Proof of a Concord Kept 1x. Most of the old passages have been filled in with rubble. Head down into the main chamber and dispatch the deacon pyromancers and slimes. Head to the opposite staircase to loot Moonlight Arrow 5x. Continue to the corner to find the revolving switch that opens the main double doors into the castle. There is a Deep Accursed waiting for you here, be careful not to be cursed by the white fog he breathes. Defeat him to earn Aldrich's Ruby. Once the doors are opened this area can be much more easily accessed from the bonfire at the base of the castle.

Anri of Astora's Questline

Step out the now opened main doors and if you've been progressing Anri of Astora's quest line, to the left you will see a purple sign on the floor which says "Touch sign requesting cooperation". Triggering it will ask you if you will answer Anri's call for cooperation and be summoned as a phantom. If you accept, you will enter their world as a phantom to assist them with defeating Aldrich, Devourer of Gods in their world. If you are successful in defeating Aldrich you will be returned back to your world, where the purple glow will now have a golden hue. Defeating Aldrich here does not count as defeating him in your world.

Facing Aldrich

Return to the main chamber and on the other side of the main hall, there is a chest (left wall if facing from the stairs) containing a Estus Shard. Continue down the hallway towards the fog gate. There are three enemies from the Deacons of the Deep boss fight standing between you and the boss room. Once they have been defeated, enter the fog gate to face Aldrich, Devourer of Gods. and earn Soul of Aldrich and Cinders of a Lord.

If this is the 3rd lord of cinder you defeated, a cutscene will play and you will be transported to the High Wall of Lothric.

Once the boss has been defeated, light the Bonfire and head left to take the lift in the corner to enter Gwynevere's former chamber to pick up the Sun Princess Ring.

        Anor londo in DS 1:
        -Journey thyself in the land of the Gods, when thou has to cross the chapel of the painted world, cross the balconies against the notorious Silver Knights archers, avoiding being impaled into the abyss below, and fight the known Knight Captain Ornstein and its brother in arms Smough, the maneater executioner.

        Only then, thou can claim entrance into Gwyndolins chamer, and retreiver the Lordvessel.

        Anor Londo in Ds3:
        -Drowning in Silver knight set and titanite, but hardly anyone here has ears to drop.
        What is this?
        The Deaf knights of Londo?

          Lord of the Rings references: "Anor" is sindarin, a language in Middle Earth meaning translated into english "sun" ->(Minath Anor = Sun City). Middle Earth seems to be the source of "Irythill" aswell probably. "Ithil" means "moon" in sindarin.

          • Lost Ring02 Aug 2016 06:22  

            I killed the black spider thing that was supposed to drop Aldritch's Rudy, but I died as I killed it and I couldn't get the Rudy. It there any way to recover it? Or am I supposed to go into NG+? If so, will it be the normal version as I'm trying to get the Ring trophy?

            • Why are the Silver Knights guarding Aldrich?01 Jul 2016 21:30  

              Silver Knights are supposed to protect the royal family including gwyndolin and yet these Knights failed or just hollowed out or don't care yet they guard anor londo. Doesn't makes sense at all

              • Flag page for Deletion17 Jun 2016 00:59  

                This page should be deleted as Anor Londo does not appear in DS3 as a whole area, but as simply a bonfire location in Irythyll of the Boreal Valley. This is validated by checking location and bonfire lists in-game.

                • Inaccessible bonfire16 May 2016 02:38  

                  From the elevator if you look to the right (assuming you're facing the Anor Londo bonfire) you can see a tower with a bonfire right by a bridge ending that leads to nowhere. Potential DLC hint?

                  • Geography?07 May 2016 10:35  

                    I'm curious, why is the geography for Anor Londo completely different? Where's the rest of it? When I look behind me when I first enter into the area, if that wall is gone, then where the hell is Sen's Fortress and the Undead Parish? And for that matter, the Duke's Archives too? Also, please avoid spoilers, I've yet to beat the game.

                      As far as I can tell, so far this is the best spot for grinding souls and titanite. Just equip both silver rings, shield of want and the mimic head, kill the two silver knights on the stairs and the red eyed one to the right. You can gain around 18000 souls in under 2 minutes. Very nice indeed (^^) <br/>Also, the knights drop the complete silver knight set which is quite a nice, if you're a knight type player!

                      • I can't believe they brought this place back24 Apr 2016 19:03  

                        It's like a winter wonderland! Too bad it's shorter than it used to be, but I'm not complaining. The boss is pretty intense.

                        • aids23 Apr 2016 21:13  

                          the boss here and the enemies are easy the only thing with this place that is annoying is the *****ing amount of invaders you'll get invaded by atleast 2 people every 5 minutes good *****ing luck getting anything done its *****ing cancer

                          • ...21 Apr 2016 03:30  

                            Mobs always manage to ***** me up somehow right before the almost impossible boss, forced to use estus because I'm a tank and the *****ing deacons with their fireballs, I'm not using a ranged wrapon, so I have to confront them. The silver knights are just annoying, they'd be bearable if they actually dropped their weapons instead of leggings every time lol.
