Basin of Vows is a Key Item in Dark Souls 3.
Basin of Vows
Basin of Vows Usage
- 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.
Basin of Vows Locations
- 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.

I feel like the dark souls protagonists would be completely unstoppable if they just carried a step ladder around. The ridiculous stuff you gotta do to move like 10 feet upwards just isn't worth it if you can just become Gilligan and pull a ladder out of thin air
should i kill the old lady on my first playthrough?
This old hag I killed her in my ng++ because unfortunately yhorm was my third boss and she will teleprot me, and I must stay with my fried sig during his death but this idiot woman when he finished his dialogue she teleported me and I didn't not farewell him! My friend rest in peace
The first time I got this, my first thought was "Aw ***** don't tell me there's more chalice dungeons"
In NG+, is it worth to kill Emma and start to fight Dancer of the boreal Valley?
When I killed Emma I thought this was a covenant item... Instant regret gg Dancer xD
This reminds me of the Lordvessel, which makes sense given how much Lothric culture idolizes the sacrifice of fire linking.
Emma was alive and gave me the Basin of Vows and then she disappeared. When I touched the statue, the boss fight with the Dancer commenced. I had defeated the three Lords of Cinder.
this is the most stupid key item ever in ds universe. it initiate stone statue beheading animation, just to miraculously bring down a 5ft ladder down. the hell man, why dont just climb the stone statue to reach the ladder for god sake.
I have a feel this has something to do with all of the beheaded Lothric Knights scattered around the High wall of Lothric. Were they given an order to behead themselves?
disappointed that it didn't have more effect on the lore
this does not initiate the fight, you do not place it on the alter to start the fight. you use it to bring the ladder down behind her after killing the boss. you get the boss to spawn by killing her.
