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.

      I am curious, Did Aldrich also attack the illusion of gwynevere, thinking it was real and trying to consume her? If so thatwould explain why the illusion is gone.

          I keep wondering why the window of the upper level is no longer broken. It's a detail from the first game, and feels like a weird detail to gloss over or dismiss.

              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.

                  When you go to the "Enemies" section on the website and you look at Anor Londo, it shows that there is a mimic im Anor Londo but there isn't.

                    Lost Ring02 Aug 2016 12:22  

                    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?02 Jul 2016 03:30  

                      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

                        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.
