Show Your Humanity Puzzle Solution

To solve this puzzle, travel to the swamp area, and use a White Branch twice or the Chameleon spell while standing in the water. You will be transformed into a humanity, much like Dark Souls One.

      Open gate shortcut. Run out the door next to bonfire to swamp. Kill the big hydralisk at bottom. Run out into swamp a bit, not far enough to agro. Use branches or chameleon repeatedly without moving until you turn into glowing white humanity. It took me 5 branches.

        If someone is still struggling to figure out the solution,just follow my lead, 1)go to to water in the swamp 2)unequip ALL your armor and 3) use the chameleon spell or a young white branch.

          Unfortunately, this page cannot be edited even by registered users. Use Chameleon or the White Branches until you turn into a humanity (black ghost with a white outline), not necessarily a certain number of times. I doubt you need to actually be in the swamp, but that is one way to do it.

            Didn't work for me. Did it in the swamp water and it kept changing between the grave stone and the big gemstone thing wasted all my branches on this.

                How in the hell would you figure this out on your own, unless you have a habit of casting chameleon on yourself not just once but twice on every single different piece of terrain in every single area of the game?

                  Literally took me 16 times before I finally made it to the inscription without being forced out of chameleon by the small drop you need to go down in order to get there

                          Cast spook and hidden body before dropping down the ledge. Then run past the first ringed knight to find the summoner, who will immediately spot you. Kill him quickly and then trace back to take on the knights one at a time. That'll be the end of your summoning problems.

                            I played other souls games, but I would never figure this one out by myself, I only could think "show your humanity" as not being hollowed.

                              FYI: The wall inscription is in the room next to the Ringed City Streets bonfire room. The room has two Ringed Knight statues against a wall and the inscription can be found on the same wall just to the right of these statues. Can't edit the page and I know people will likely navigate to here without going via the walkthrough page so hopefully this comment remains visible enough to help.

                                I turned into humanity and walked over to the door (even went across the lake like it suggested) and the door is still closed what should I do
