To reach Yahar’gul, Unseen Village you’ll need head from the Grand Cathedral in Cathedral Ward down the stairs to the left, where you defeated the two Hunters, and enter the church you arrived at after defeating Rom, the Vacuous Spider.

Quickly pass under the Lesser Amygdala hanging above the door to avoid being grabbed and enter the Yahar’gul, Unseen Village.

Head back to where you fought the Hunters and pass under the Lesser Amygdala.

The enemies in this area may look like standard Huntsmen, but they are overpowered versions that will continue to respawn as long as the Bell Ringer remains alive.

Enemy Info: Bell Ringers are not much of a threat on their own, but their ability to revive and buff enemies means they should be your priority in any situation. Look past the spawned enemies, often in dead end paths or corners, and make sure you take these ladies out before clearing the area.

Head down the stairs, dealing with the two Huntsmen, and then continue down another set to encounter another Huntsman before turning around to grab the Frenzied Coldblood (8) beside the stairs. Continue to the next area to light the Yahar’gul, Unseen Village lamp and then wait for all the enemies to pass the next set of stairs before taking a right.

Check behind the statue for a Blood Stone Chunk and continue down the nearby stairs to kill the Wheelchair Huntsman and Huntsman before grabbing the Iron Yahar’gul Helm .

Make sure to grab the Blood Stone Chunk and the Iron Yahar’gul Helm.

Return up the stairs to the long staircase leading down with multiple enemies that respawn and rush down to enter the building behind them to find the Bell Ringer on the second level of the room.

Once you defeat the Bell Ringer the enemies will stop respawning and they will be stunned for a few seconds while they are debuffed, so you can now kill them. Make sure to check the cell behind the Bell Ringer’s location for a Bolt Damp Blood Gem (4) and then exit through the side door.

Kill the Bell Ringer to prevent enemies from respawning and then grab the Blood Gem.

The Bell Ringer for this section is on the opposite side of the cell, so it is best to ignore the enemies in the hall and rush through the cell doors to approach the Bell Ringer. Once she is dead you can deal with the enemies you passed then grab the Heir Rune near just outside the cell. Male sure to open the door near the Bell Ringer’s location for a quick shortcut and then grab the Frenzied Coldblood (8) inside the nearby cell.

The next area has a large number of Hemwick Grave Women, with a hidden Bell Ringer that can be difficult to locate. Start by taking the stairs and then hugging the right wall to find a gap in the railing, where you can drop down, and enter a room to find the Bell Ringer and a Huntsman’s Minion.

Drop off to the right of the upper level to find the Bell Ringer hiding away.

Before you do anything else you should walk back outside and get the Frenzied Coldblood (8) off the corpse and then return inside to drop into the center of the caged room for the Upper Cathedral Key . Exit and kill the Huntsman’s Minion and Wheelchair Huntsman before opening the chest with the Tiny Tonitrus arcane item and then make your way back to the area you dropped from.

Make sure to get the key to an area you’ll visit later and then grab the Tiny Tonitrus.

Kill the Hemwick Grave Women, but be careful of the Lesser Amygdala that shoots a laser beam across the whole area, and then check between the two staircases for a Blood Stone Chunk . You now need to get past the Lesser Amygdala, but one wrong step and you’ll have to start the whole area over again.

The easiest way I find to get through this area is to rush from the left stairs to the left side of the circular area at the top of the main staircase, stopping to kill a Hemwick Grave Woman throwing Molotov Cocktails, and the rush along the right side of the stairs to reach the Yahar’gul Chapel.
