Gaol Cave Walkthrough

Quick walkthrough:

  1. Proceed through the cave until you come to a lever. Pulling the lever will unlock the cells throughout the cave.
  2. Proceed further in, and you will come to a hidden area (behind breakable wooden boards). The boss is at the bottom of a pit behind these boards.
  3. After defeating the boss, DO NOT take the shortcut right away; instead proceed through the tunnel opening on the South-West side of the boss arena to obtain the Regalia Of Eochaid sword.

      I wonder if this is a throwback to Bloodborne's Hypogean Gaol.

      "Hypogean Gaol" simply means 'underground jail'.

      • This was my favorite optional dungeon in the game. Good atmospheric and mechanical touches and very well designed, with pretty nice loot to boot.

        • For those who struggled finding the wooden boards to break through to get to the boss arena, see this image:

          (I wasn't able to upload it to the page)

            Is it safe to assume that Elemer was imprisoned here before he killed the executioner and escaped? Since we find a weapon from Eochaid

              To open the cells, and the wooden door, you have to get all the way down to where you’ll see a rat run from right to left, and you have to drop down. Fight the rats and their momma ROUS, then head right. Jump up a slope, watch out for the poison traps, and kill the Vulgar in this room. The switch is at the top of the stairs, the door below can be opened from this side. There’s also a chest in this room.

                Has anyone figured out how to open the wooden door below the lever? I can't find mention of it anywhere. And since it says "doesn't open from this side", it must open from the other...

                  Equip longsword or 2h big weapon with both hands. Slam fire guys near cell as you go by. They go boom seconds later. Half dungeon completed and you can loot easier later when those doors all open up.

                    I was able to get the Regalia of Eochaid without defeating the boss with careful jumping on Torrent from the cliffs above.

                      there is a cell with three corpses with items, one is a gold rune but the other two are a stonesword key and a Wakizashi bleed dagger that mentions Okina in the description.

                        hard to find cave behind a big flower at the edge of the red swamp where it meets the cliff under fort Gaol

                          To anyone looking for it: This is between Fort Gael North (Site of Grace) and Caelid Waypoint Ruins, closer to Fort Gael, directly NE of it.

                          Notable loot is: a Wakizashi and Regalia of Eochaid.

                          • Gaol Cave is Northwest of Caelid Point Ruins. The cave goes underneath Fort Gael. You fight a Frenzied Berserker boss who's name I can't remember right now. The boss is worth roughly 6,700 Runes with no drops. Behind the boss is an overlook that points away from Fort Gael and towards the beach. At that overlook to the left is a body with a glowstone on it and Regalia of Eochaid.
