Church of Vows Walkthrough

Upon arrival, you are greeted by Miriel, Pastor of Vows, guardian of the church. Upon your first meeting, Miriel will tell the story of the church and offer to share its knowledge on Sorceries, Incantations, as well as Lore related to Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon and Lord Radagon.

Check the right side of the church's entrance for a chest containing the Golden Tailoring Tools and Gold Sewing Needle key items.

Located at the center of the church, a statue of Lady Rennala stands out. Player's can interact with the statue as an "Atone" option is displayed. If you are in possession of a Celestial Dew, atoning for your sins will reverse any antagonizations you have with NPCs, whether caused by accident or on purpose, making them friendly again. However, if the NPC has been killed atonement will not revive them. Celestial Dews are key items obtained from various sources. For details, see the Celestial Dew page.

There is a Bell Bearing Hunter boss that can be fought at the church if you come in during night time. It drops the Meat Peddler's Bell Bearing upon defeat. If you are having trouble spawning the boss, rest at the Site of Grace outside, advance til night and then rest once more. The boss should spawn afterwards.

      A comment says the statue at the church is Rennala wearing a different funny hat, the statue is what I came to ask about, the hat on the statue is very similar to the Nox swordstress crown. I'm standing next to the statue now getting my fashion souls on and the only slight difference is under the chin and the cloth hanging from the back. Is there any connection in the lore between the Nox swordstress and Nox night maidens and Rennala if that really is a statue of her?

        I really appreciate your sensitivity in referring to Miriel as an “it.” We really cannot know for sure if Miriel is male, female, or other since we cannot ask it its pronouns. I mean he has a male sounding voice (or at least what “society” considers a “male” “voice”) but we really cannot know for sure. Best not to assume. Glad to see a website that is at the forefront of combating gender stereotypes and transphobia.

          Well, I was lied to, it doesn't revive NPCs. I had to kill Haight after I accidentally hit him, and then I find out I couldn't.

              coming to post this again. This section of the wiki "atoning for your sins will revive any Merchant NPCs that you have killed, whether by accident or on purpose" is still incorrect. the church of vows does not revive *any* NPC's. it simply de-aggro's them or fixes the questline if they have been angered

              i have killed every possible NPC in my save (NG+3) and not a single time was i able to atone for my "Sins" this includes all (currently known) nomadic/hermit merchants, NPC's, and quest givers

              where this information came from i have no idea, but its straight up just incorrect

                Anyone know if "atoning" at the church of vows will make Melina forgive you after you took in the flame of frenzy and then burnt the tree down?

                  Currently Absolution does not revive NPCs you've killed. It only resets hostility from friendly NPCs you've damaged.
                  I'm not sure if this is a bug or if Absolution reviving NPCs was a bug that has now been fixed.

                    I don't think this brings things back to life if you have killed them im sure it just stops then hating if u have hit them accedently

                      You can't revive NPCs if you've killed them. Not Gostoc, not Seluvis, not even the merchants. NO ONE comes back to life here. This church is for fixing aggression if you ATTACKED someone and bailed. Or in certain situations like fixing your mistake siding with Seluvis to give Ranni a potion. I'm not sure why this rumor got spread but it needs to end.

                          Anyone notice that the statue looks like a nox swordstress, at least helmet-wise? Might have lore implications.

                            Killed all the nomadic merchants so I could give their bells to the shrine husk for convenience’s sake thinking I could just revive them later. After I atoned none of them came back to life. I wouldn’t have done this in hindsight if i knew I couldn’t revive them. The world feels a lot emptier now.

                              Does anyone know if Nepheli Loux could be revived? It didnt look like her questline went anywhere and I wanted her axes so I killed her but with the update she has more stuff apparently

                                  I wonder if you can revive Gostoc and Kenneth. I killed them both since in the previous playthrough none of them did anything for the whole game. And Kenneth drops a Golden Seed, which is pretty important.

                                    "Player's can interact with the statue as an "Atone" option is displayed. If you are in possession of a Celestial Dew, atoning for your sins will revive any Merchant NPCs that you have killed, whether by accident or on purpose."

                                    Can't you merely atone for having angered npc's, instead of being able to revive them?

                                    I just wanted a copy of brother Corhyn's robes...

                                      The Bell Bearing Hunter will not spawn unless you have completed all the Turtle Popes dialogue options, in addition to the one pass time until night then one rest method.

                                        is there a list on which NPCs can be revived or reset to be neutral when using the celestial dew?

                                        i read in one of the wikis that betraying ranni with seluvis, can be negated by the dew. but seluvis remains dead and lootable.

                                        varre supposedly can't be revived when killed.

                                        sellen can be revived or pacified.

                                        etc.. anyone else? what about gostoc? he seems connected to nepheli and kenneth's questline? i killed him and i dunno if he can be revived.

                                          You cant revive Millicent if you killed her by landing on her, just an FYI for all the people saying you can on youtube, reddit and such

                                            To consistently spawn the invader: Pass time until nightfall and then teleport 2 times. It must be deep in the night, not only nightfall.

                                              Right, so I encountered a Boss called the Bell Bearing Hunter at night time when I went to hand in the Giant's Prayerbook to Miriel. He dropped the Meat Peddler's Bell Bearing. Which apparently gives you access to Sliver of Meat, Lump of Meat, and Turtle Neck Meat.

                                              Was not expecting that, shoulda known better after the Warmaster Shack.

                                                NPC Invader comes at night, you have to wait til night, then wait for like ~2mins IRL, rest at the grace site again. After getting up from the grace site, you will no longer see the turtle in the church. If you walk in the church you will get invaded.

                                                NPC name: Bell Bearing Hunter

                                                    I warped here after getting the grace point, and was invaded by an npc named bell hunter I think. The church looked slightly different and no turtle. Died and was kicked back the regular church.

                                                    • To get to the Church of Vows take the Eastern Tableland site of grace. From there, go west following the road. Stay in the road at all times. At the first intersection go left (or west) again. You'll see the Church of Vows in the distance. It has its own Site of Grace so you will not have to do this again.
