Forge of the Giants Walkthrough
There's nothing to loot or explore in the Forge of the Giants other than reach the Site of Grace at the end of the left edge. Once you reached the edge, don't attempt to explore the center of the forge as it will result in instant death. The only relevant thing to do here, is to talk to Melina in that Site of Grace. She will ask you if you are ready to commit to a sin, in which if you accept, after a few cinematics you will be teleported to Crumbling Farum Azula. Before accepting, it is recommended that your character is around Lvl 100+ otherwise this area might be a bit heavy for you.
If you've inherited the Frenzied Flame, then Melina won't show up at this stage, instead there will be an option to "Listen to the sounds of flame" at the site of grace. After which you'll be teleported to Crumbling Farum Azula all the same.
Be sure to finish or skip the cutscene. Quitting during the cutscene will interrupt the telportation process and you might not be able to progress to NG+. If the cutscene is interrupted, attempt to rest at the Forge of the Giants site of grace again. It should re-trigger the cutscene and teleportation process.
