Accessing The Dreg Heap
The Ringed City DLC is accessed by traveling to Kiln of the First Flame, and finding a new bonfire before Soul of Cinder that transports you to the DLC location. There is also a bonfire you can find in the Painted World of Ariandel, in the chapel by Sister Friede.
When you arrive, light the Bonfire, and step through the doorway and head down. To your right you can venture off the steps and make your way around a round rooftop and at the end you will find an Ember x1. Standing on the ledge nearby you will find the Stone-humped Hag who you can speak to and purchase stuff from. You can drop down from this ledge to the lower levels, noticing that falls are a little different here and you can survive larger drops. At the bottom courtyard, you'll encounter a swarm of Murkman foes. Be careful with these as they can gang up on you rather quickly and with some deadly sorcery.
Head up the steps to the left from where you dropped to come to a level with a Harald Legion soldier who is quite the foe. Stay out of reach of it's melee attacks and attack after it finishes its leap attack. You can use verticality as your ally here, as a well placed drop attack can result in a visceral attack that does a ton of damage to then. 1 or 2 of these types of attacks are usually enough to bring them down. Loot the corpse here for Titanite Chunk x1. Head up the next set of steps to find a corpse with Aquamarine Dagger on it. Make your way back down to the courtyard where you fought the murkmen and proceed forward to see a corpse on a ledge. Walk by it to cause the ledge to collapse and you will fall through a window and into a building. At the bottom you can loot the corpse for Soul of a Weary Warrior x1.
You will find several murkmen in this room, so be wary as you explore. You can loot corpses in here for Titanite Scale x1, Twinkling Titanite x1 and the Murky Hand Scythe. Exit via the hole in the wall and head right. You will now come to a tricky run and hide section where Angels will fire continuous beams at you. This is a timing game and they also can summon a spotlight on you that will inflict Curse on you while you're in it's area. They can be destroyed by finding and killing the long hollows.
When you're ready drop down, and if you're brave you can backtrack to loot a corpse for Divine Blessing. Dash/roll ahead to find cover behind a fallen pillar and heal up if needed. Then dash across behind the building where you will find a corpse with Lightning Urn x4. If you're exceptionally brave, you can circle around to the other side of the building, leaving you exposed to the angel, where you will find a corpse with Ring of Steel Protection +3. Proceed through the doorway and head left to take on an overgrown knight and another he summons. Defeat them and loot the corpse at the altar for a Soul of a Crestfallen Knight x1. Make an about face and exit the doorway to the left and head right up the slope to face some emerging murkmen. Around to the left you can loot a corpse for Rusted Coin x2.
Head up through the doorway and up the short steps to trigger more murkmen. You can loot a corpse to the left for Titanite Chunk x2. Proceed through the next 2 rooms to find more murkmen and a corpse with Murky Longstaff. Before leaving this room, be sure to tap on the wall to your left when entering. This will open up a staircase leading to another set of rooms containing Great Soul Dregs and a ledge drop off leading to the Covetous Silver Serpent Ring +3 on the ledge below.
Exit this area the way you came and now take the slope straight down. A tower will fall across the expanse here. After the tower falls down, destroying a portion of the chuch with 2 Lothric Knights in it, you can go back in to the church and use the fallen tower as a bridge to find Lapp and begin his questline. When you come to a small clearing an Angel will start firing beams at you. There is a stationary hollow enemy to the left you can kill for a possible Twinkling Titanite. Before dropping down below, and after clearing the Angel spawner (it will not respawn when you die/rest, so you can come back later) head back out to the first cliff edge you met the Angel on and walk along the wooden catwalk, and around the corner to reach the Ring of Steel Protection +3. Continue ahead and drop down the series of platforms to find more murkmen and a Harald soldier. Take the soldier down with patience and then loot the corpse by the pillar for Titanite Chunk x1. Another corpse along a railing will have Homeward Bone x3. Here you willl take a leap of faith and drop off this far ledge.
At the bottom, drop down to the lower level and to the right of the downed towers you will find a Bonfire. If you met Lapp earlier, he will be sitting on the ledge just to the right. Speak to him about the treasure that can be found. To progress his story you'll have to loot the Titanite Slab from the corpse in the cave guarded by a Harald soldier in the next section. If you head to the left of the bonfire you will find some mushrooms and a corpse with Black Firebomb x4. Proceeding ahead of the bonfire be mindful of the Angel on the left. You will have to make your way to the left, towards the angel. If you dash ahead you can find a shack cover to the right. Use the structures in this area to stay in safety. By one of the shack like structures you will find a corpse laying against the wall with Desert Pyromancer Garb.
Head to the right over one of the downed pillars to find a corpse with Titanite Scale x1. You can explore the downed debris here in the pool for a corpse with Titanite Chunk x1 by a mushroom Head right across the clearing to come to a tunnel like shaft.
A Thrall will be straight ahead to deal with and to your left is a corpse with Ember x1. Proceed forward and drop down to the ground and make your way to the shack ahead and go inside. Take out the mushrooms and loot the corpse here for Purple Moss Clump x4. To the right of the shack you can go up a ledge along a fallen tower to find Desert Pyromancer Gloves but be careful of the Angel bombarding you with beams. To the left of the shack you can proceed through a poison pool beneath a tree root and hang a right into a tunnel where you will find a Harald soldier and beyond a bunch of mushrooms. Take them out and loot the corpse they were guarding for Large Soul of a Weary Warrior x1. Around the bend you will find another Harald legion in the corner. Take it out and loot the corpse for Titanite Slab x1.
Exit the area and head right to run up a giant tree branch and move fast because the Angel is going to be bringing the pain. Drop down to the next branch to the right and take it up and around and head left through the stone path. You can also roll onto the roof of the house to the right, take out the thrall and across the rooftops to take out the hollow which will also take out the Angel. Then you can drop down to the ground level to come to explore the poison pool for it's loot. with a corpse beneath a branch overhang with a Harald Curved Greatsword and a Harald legion soldier lurking. Try and lure it away from the pool. If you go on the overhang and proceed forward you'll come to a thrall and a corpse with Homeward Bone x1 right at the edge of a drop to a poison pool. If you drop down you will find a Loincloth on dry ground by some mushrooms. You can head up one of the large branches coming from the pool to find the Ring of Favor +3 and then drop down on the left branch and take it to the end to find a corpse with Titanite Chunk x1. Drop down and head right and follow the branch network back up where you were until you come to a stone path on the left.
Take out the thrall here and as you advance 2 more thralls and Desert Pyromancer Zoey will ambush you. Take them out and loot Flame Fan from Zoey and loot the corpse on the left wall for Prism Stone x6.
Continue on and find along the last tree on the right, Desert Pyromancer Hood. Head out on the large branch here but be ready for the Angel beams. This is going to be a death run. If you want to avoid this and get to the bonfire, skip to the next paragraph. Dodge the beams of the angel and stay on the branch to the right, using the other branch for cover. When you get to the end jump off to the tower and then drop again through the opening to find a Bonfire. From here you can proceed ahead and drop off the edge to fall way down to take on the Boss of this location.
If you don't want to deal with the branch run to the bonfire, you can make your way back to the main clearing with the Angel. If you choose to head towards the angel and the cliff edge you will come to a narrow path along the cliff you can take down past a thrall and then head right on the ledge to find the Giant Door Shield. This is a treacherous run however with the Angel relentless in its attacks. Make your way back up the narrow path and loot the corpse along the ruins for Titanite Chunk x1. If you're feeling brave you can approach the edge here and roll down to a branch below. Take it down to a ledge where you will find a hollow you can kill for Twinkling Titanite and a corpse with Ember x1. Proceed forward up the branch and take it around to a rooftop area. You can loot a corpse on the roof to the left for Divine Blessing x1. From the right of the branch you can climb up a downed tower and proceed forward to take a long drop down to find the Bonfire referenced in the last paragraph.
Boss Fight: Demon in Pain & Demon From Below
Once defeated, proceed ahead towards the doorway and light the Bonfire to the left of it. Step through the doorway and loot the Small Envoy Banner from the corpse. Continue on and head down the tunnel to come outside. You will be prompted to display the banner. Consent and you'll be whisked away (by guess who) to the next location, The Ringed City.
