so you have more uses out of it before you have to return to and rest at a site of grace if you’re new to the game first things first make sure you don’t miss the tutorial area the cave of knowledge as it can actually be surprisingly easy to miss if you’re an experienced player feel free to skip it although it does teach some of the new mechanics such as guard countering once you’ve opened the door outside of the stranded graveyard and into limgrave the world truly is your oyster but don’t be overwhelmed.
your first goal is to activate three sites of grace as this will bring melanoma to you who will not only give you the ability to access torrent the spectral steed but also the ability to level up to easily access torrents I’d advise signing the spectral steed whistle to your quick item menu which you can access in the equipment section that way you can just hit the action key and the corresponding directional button to quickly call them to you this means you won’t have to spend time scrolling through your item menu so you can quickly escape from situations that get a bit sticky you’ll also want to find your first map fragment so you can more easily explore and find things in the massive overworld.
your first sight of grace is easy enough right in front of you at the first step next you’ll want to head directly north and avoid the tree sentinel hanging out on the path where you’ll find the church of ella another site of grace a blacksmithing table and kali the merchant if you need a hand finding these three just follow the golden path kylie the merchant sells
a number of useful items the crafting kit will allow you to use all of the crafting materials you’ve gathered throughout the game and craft whatever you choose i highly recommend buying a torch here it‘s only 200 runes and you’ll definitely want one for the dungeons ahead he also sells a note about the flask of wondrous physic this is another healing flask you can find
which can be incredibly useful this note clues you in on the location just northeast through the force is your next destination this leads you to the gatefront ruins and your first map fragment if you need help tracking down these map fragments open your map and look for these icons that’s where you‘ll find them make sure to fully explore these runes as there’s a secret basement that contains a whetstone which is what allows you to equip ashes of war under your weapons which are very useful skills you’ll find throughout the game on top of that on the north side you’ll find a chest with the lord sworn’s greatsword while you might not have the stats to be able to wield it yet this is a great starting weapon for any type ofstrength build.
if you‘re new to these games i recommend trying it out and leveling up your strength stats to wield it when you can the weapon’s a little slower but is powerful enough to allow you to briefly stagger manyenemies you otherwise couldn’t just by hitting them with a two-handed attack or even sometimes a one-handed attack not only that but to the north west and southeast of gate front ruins you‘ll
find sites of grace rest at one of these and both torrent and the ability to level up is yours once you’ve done all of this i want you to hop on torrent and run through the stormgate to the west of the gatefront site of grace and follow the path up to the stormhill shack along the way you’ll find another golden seed which you’ll definitely want as it will allow you yet another upgrade to your flasks of tears not only that but at the stormhill shack you’ll find an npc who will gift you spirit jellyfish ashes
my opinion this is an incredibly useful spirit ash as you can use it to help distract bosses and take their aggro away from you however you can’t use spirit ashes yet but now that you have torrent you can now find the spirit calling bell which allows you to do this
first thing you need to do is rest at your site of grace and pass time until night as the npc who gives you this only appears at night next warp back to the church of ella and you’ll now find the witch rena talk to her and she’ll gift you the spirit calling bell as well as lone wolf ashes now you have an extra tool to aid you in combat from here there are two dungeons i’d recommend checking out these are stormfoot catacombs and the grove side cave they’re low level dungeons which are well suited for beginners and completing.
