On your first trip to Firelink Shrine you’ll need to place the coiled sword into the center of the area to create a bonfire. Introduce yourself to your surroundings and the NPC’s that make it their home:

  • Firekeeper: Exchanges souls for an increase in one stat attribute of your choice.

  • Shrine Handmaiden: The primary merchant until you recruit other NPCs.

  • Andre the Blacksmith: Uupgrades and infuses weapons, allows you to change the ratio of Estus to Ashen Estus Flasks, as well as upgrades your Estus Flasks.

  • Hawkwood the Deserter: Offerf information on your objectives.

Place the Coiled Sword to create a bonfire (left) and then check out the NPCs, leveling up at the Firekeeper with any souls you have (right).

Once you are done exploring the area, place the Coiled Sword in the center of the chamber to create a bonfire and travel to High Wall of Lothric.

“Only in truth the lords will abandon their thrones and the unkindled will rise. Nameless accursed undead, unfit even to be cinder.”

You are an Unkindled, a being of ash, unworthy of becoming even a Lord of Cinder. You awaken in the Cemetery of Ash to the tolling of a bell, signalling the approaching end of the First Flame. You must seek out the embers of the First Flame and defeat the Lords of Cinder so the flame can be linked again.

“And so it is, that ash seeketh embers…”
