Archdeacon McDonnell Information

  • Cannot be killed for he is already dead.
  • Covenant Leader for Aldrich Faithful.

 

Location

  • In Irithyll of the Boreal Valley, from the Pontiff Sulyvahn bonfire, proceed straight through the door, go left up the stairs and straight through the courtyard of dead giants. Go through the door at the far end. The left hand corner of the room can be struck to reveal a ladder. Descend that ladder and get past the enemies to find Archdeacon McDonnell. With him, you can join the Aldrich Faithful Covenant. You may offer him Human Dregs to rank up in the covenant.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Notes & Trivia

  • The McDonnell surname is derived from the Gaelic name Domhnall which means "ruler of the world", composed of the old Celtic elements dumno "world" and val "rule", "Mc" prefix means "son of". 
  • Shortly after the game's release, it was believed that offering by 30 Human Dregs, the player could resurrect McDonnell, but he will shortly die after being revived. This is not true, as nothing you do in the game can revive him and he will remain dead throughout the entire game.

      POV: You fall down a ladder into a flooded room, find a dead fat guy in a corner and immediately start praying to him. WeirdChamp

        To reach him without killing the beasts, just use a Young White Branch. The beasts will not see you and you will have just enough time to either join or level the covenant and warp out before the beasts get to you.

            I'm guessing the fact he's in a glorified well surrounded by sulyvahn's monsters used to protect things from intruders, that the pontiff had him killed and hidden so he could take over irithyll?

              So McDonnell is derived from the name Domhnall? As in Domhnall of Xena or whatever his suffix was? Deepest lore

                Oh sheets! That guy is NOT dead? He has his eyes gouged out and is slumped on the corner there, in this big sewer arena.

                  Maybe he's Aldrich's morbidly obese son that was locked away in that room for eating all of Aldrichs human supply in one sitting... Js

                  • I gave him 30 Human Dregs, and he did not do that. I unequipped the covenant item so I didn't get summoned while trying to get to him so I don't know if that would have anything to do with it. It left me disappointed, I thought that sounded hilarious and was hoping to see him come back just to randomly die...

                      Is it just me, or is he kind of bloated? The size and gooey-nes might suggest that he also ate men, like Aldrich, and that he's turning into mush, like his master.

                        One was the leader of the Deacons of the Deep at Aldritch's grave, this one chills in the sewers, but there was a third one mentioned in some item description.

                          Just fight them 1 at a time, they dont respawn, so as you got down the ladder. shot one of them with bow, it will aggro at you, as long as you wont leave the corner with ladder, the 2nd one won't notice you

                          • Simply los the two behind the pillars and just poke them. I used a great hammer to smack their face then when they fell back Critical Attack them.

                              Easy enough to bait the one on the left into that little nook and kill, if you bait the far one and fight him you will pull the other during your fight if youre not careful

                              • Slide down the ladder and shoot the croc that you can see with a bow to agro it and climb the ladder a little ways up. Wait for enemy to move under the ladder and when its under you let go of ladder and do a plunging attack. Roll around it until you have an opening to climb ladder again and reapeat until its dead. Do ssame wither other one. Silvercat Ring helps a bunch for not taking falling damage.

                                  Heh good luck talking to this guy... you will have to take on 2 of those insane crocodile monsters to get to him.
