      Make sure you use all your runes or kill all the giant bats before you go down to get the Dragoncrest talisman and Cinquedea, you won't be able to open your map and teleport otherwise, and you'll be forced to use the Memory or Grace or jump to your death. Good grief.

        Had an issue where I was down next to Cinquedea and couldn't access my map. Got around it by using the golden effigy to get summoned and it reset the aggro from whatever was hiding and I could use the map again.

          once had a bug where he would be inside of the sanctum and outside screaming at the same time lol, thought there were two of them

          • Anonymous

            Can confirm that as of 1.03.2 the killbox to access the branch is gone. Was able to get the Dragoncrest Shield Talisman and the Cinquedea.

              PLEASE NOTE the area is currently bugged. Trying to drop down to the bottom via the branches of the side will result in you touching a kill barrier, preventing those items from being currently accessible

                If he becomes hostile and you then fight him without entering the room ( I ran out of the room, came back a while later and shot him from the outside ) he does not become friendly again and is hostile until you kill him or restart the fight

                • Anonymous

                  After the 4th Deathroot, he will temporarily become hostile to you the next time you spawn in. If you die from his attack or take out 20% of his health, he reverts back to normal.

                  • Since this page is incomplete about the "Bottom of the Beastial Sanctum" area (not officially named that), if you go to the left side of the sanctum and follow the cliffside you can see a singular large tree root below the side, its up past the spot with ~6 faded erdleaf gatherables, you can then drop to another root, onto a rooftop, and down to the edges of the bottom of the sanctum (usually requiring your horse between levels to jump off, then 180 back onto the halfway ledge on the large pillars), this area is good for farming Sanctuary Stones, a few Ruin Fragments, but at the bottom level is a dagger (Cinquedea, that buffs Beast Incantations) on a square platform, and just past it towards the north on the same level, a Talisman (Dragoncrest Shield Talisman, the +0 version of the +Phys Defense Talisman), this area is guarded by the large Bat enemies found elsewhere during night. Side note, these enemies can drop consumable Runes 3, 4, and 5.

                      This guy scared the **** out of me. I warped in after picking up my fifty death root and I hear the loud roar and look to where the guy is and he's barreling towards me.

                        How has no one figured out this is the backway to a great farmng spot?

                        Kill the Mariner boss, talk to D and get to the protal he marks to get in fornt of the door leading to the Beast Sanctum site of Grace.
                        Once it's active go outside and walk to the Farum Greatbridge site of grace by the bridge with the dragon on it.
                        Between these 2 sites of grace you can farm the little black-clad soldiers nearly until the cows come home for 1000+K runes per kill and they die quickly.

                          If you get stuck at the bottom with a bunch of tunes equip a sacrificial twig and jump to your death. Your runes will be saved and you will teleport back to grace.

                            Oof.. He got angry after the fourth deathroot and I didn't know why, so I killed him and his friend outside..

                              A little buggy if you hand in large amounts. I had given him 3 already, then handed in 3 all at the same time. Initially he just game me the 4th reward. I quit the game and came back. He fought me, I calmed him. Then he gave me the 2 rewards after. Nothing lost, just got worried haha

                                hahahaha so you can get down below this place if you carefully fall down the tree branches. there is a dagger and a talisman down there. you can actually get so far down there that the camera can't even track you correctly.

                                  Well he dissapeared for me. After 4th deathroot i slapped him few times to calm down. He did, “put it away i wont forget again”. I rested at grace and he is now gone. Ideas?

                                    drops draconic smithing stone after defeating him and killing him (idk if theres a dialouge option i hit too much?) (i fought him after feeding him all the seeds and then coiming back after a while~~~)

                                      I gave the priest... I think 7 or 8 deathroot? That seems to be all of it. He says that it has all been consumed, and gives you an Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone as well as the incantation Gurranq's Beast Claw.

                                        After giving fourth Deathroot you have to fight him and after a certain amount of damage he will control himself and stop attacking. Then you can give him fifth deathroot from Gelid Hero's Grave in MT. Gelmir (the section of the map were the volcano is) After killing the boss from a chest.

                                        The Strat i used to get Clergyman to settle down was to use the rotted breath incantation from outside the big door and let it widdle his health down. He will teleport back and the scarlet rot will stop harming him so don't worry about killing him or anything like that.

                                        Hope this helps :)

                                          Guys DO NOT ROAR while inside the sanctum. I'm talking any roar. Troll's roar, Greyoll's roar, any. It will aggro the priest. He takes it as a challenge.

                                            I aggro'd the big guy on the stairs in front of this place. Ran in to sit at the Grace to de-aggro. After standing up from the Grace this guy was Aggro'd on me. Careful messing around with the guys near this place. This was also right after I gave him the 4th Deathroot and got Beast Roar, so it might be related.

                                              after 4 deathroots he becomes temporarily hostile. you have to beat his ass to stop him. i found it easiest to do by summoning a mimic, though the wolves would likely work as well, and hitting him with the upgraded version of rotten breath (cant remember the name). after he takes a certain amount of damage he calms down and apologizes, and goes back to being un killable.

                                                Agro’d the Clergyman, possibly due to starting the lord of blood quest. Absolution doesn’t de-agro him

                                                  After giving him 4 deathroots and reloading he became hostile (cannot reset even with absolution) he just kept screaming "I NEED MORE' I guess he thought I (the dude bringing him deathroots) had more on me that I was keeping from him. What a total madman.

                                                    For me he turned hostile as I teleported in to turn in the 4th deathroot.
                                                    He yielded at like 80%, after resting at the grace site, he was back at his usual location and I was able to turn it in. Got the Beast Claw incantation, 8 faith requirement. He used it during the fight also I think.
