Head forward and to the left to take out the three enemies inside the tent. Continue to the left and defeat the enemy next to a group of items. Surrounding the enemy are three Souls of a Nameless Soldier, the Large Soul of a Proud Knight and Peasant Attire. Pick up the items, then destroy the wooden tower just ahead to find 15 Lacerating Arrows. Use the arrows to take out the soldier in the guard tower just ahead.
Turn to the right and head into the center of the campsite where there are three tents. If the pigs engage you, take them down, then move into the tent furthest away from you of the three in the center. Light the bonfire inside, then break the pottery near the guard tower to find the Large Soul of a Nameless Soldier, and pick up the item near the well to obtain a Titanite Shard.
Head up the mountain path at the end of the camp. When you reach the end of the path, drop down into the well below. Pick up the three Holy Water Urns and continue through the tunnel. Climb up the ladder and open the chest to find five Human Effigies. Use the rocks to climb out of the small enclosure, then head across to the far side of the camp and make your way toward the ladder on the left.
Be careful as you approach the ladder. An enemy drops a giant boulder from above just before you reach the item on the ground in front of the ladder. Avoid the boulder, then pick up the item to obtain the Soul of a Nameless Soldier.
Climb up the ladder, kill the enemy to the left, then destroy the wood holding the other boulder in place. Look behind the boulder to find the Soul of a Brave Warrior, then climb back down the ladder and take out the four enemies at the end of the path.
Continue through the mountain and pick up the Large Titanite Shard to the left when you get to the next clearing. Defeat the three enemies on the other side, then open the door they're guarding and head into the tunnels below.
Move into the tunnel on the left to find a chest in the next room. When you open the chest, a red orb appears, which spawns a horde of spider enemies. Quickly move away from the chest and back into the tunnel you just came from. The spiders are very dangerous because if they jump on you, it's instant death. Back away and take them out one at a time, unless you have an area attack such as a Firebomb.
Defeat the spiders, then go back to the chest to find 20 Heavy Bolts. Head through the opening to the left and into the door. Continue through the mist to begin the boss battle against the Prowling Magus and his Congregation.
