The shrine can be found in the Shaded Woods area. You’re best to go from the second bonfire (the one with the 3 nearby exits) and head through the archway with the Goblins running around outside.

Be wary as you head around the right-hand corner though as you’ll spot a Flexile Sentry (and it’s harder to beat as the sword-bearing side seems to face you more often). There’s also another Poison Goblin hidden a bit further down on a path leading right to where we want to go.

Don’t forget to grab the [Dragonslayer’s Crescent Axe + Golden Falcon Shield] from the ground before heading up to the shrine itself.

Time for the final stretch of the storyline!

Once the doors are open, simply run forwards and drop down the entire winding path to save time. Now run to the right and pick up the spell [Repair] and a [Large Soul of a Lost Undead] .

Turn back around and then head along the winding path. There’s a [Divine Blessing] on your left and then a bit further up you’ll find another Heide Knight who will drop his weapon the [Heide Lance] if you decide to try and kill him (he’s fast and tough by the way).

Just past the knight on the right you’ll find a [Large Soul of a Nameless Warrior + Human Effigy] . Proceed through the tunnel to reach the next area in the game: Drangleic Castle .
