Basin of Vows is a Key Item in Dark Souls 3.
Basin of Vows
- Place on the altar at the cathedral of the Way of Blue to access Lothric Castle. Once placed, a cutscene will activate and the Dancer of the Boreal Valley will appear for her boss fight. Note: If acquired the conventional way from Emma, the boss fight will start and the Basin must be placed under the statue afterwards to drop the ladder down.
- Dropped from Emma on the High Wall of Lothric.
- Given to the player by Emma if she is still alive and the player successfully defeats the three lords of cinder, Yhorm the Giant, Aldrich, Devourer of Gods and the Abyss Watchers
- If the player wishes, they can kill Emma upon meeting her and place the basin on the statue without proceeding to the Vordt of the Boreal Valley boss fight and the rest of the game. This will cause the Dancer of the Boreal Valley to appear and her boss fight to occur. As you can imagine, this will be very difficult as the player will not be very strong so early, but it is possible to proceed to Lothric Castle without fighting Vordt of the Boreal Valley and reaching the Undead Settlement.
