      Dump all spell books on the turtle. It doesn’t mess up story progress or quests. It helps you later if you mess up an NPC quest and they disappear.

        When you re-enter the boss room on the balcony above, you can make the jump from the railing to the branch if you run an jump to the left. It may be an unnecessary time save, but a time save nonetheless.

          The corpse that the book is found on is a unique asset found nowhere else, with unique clothing that we cannot find ourselves. Considering this and the positioning of the corpse, close to the Erdtree and high above the ground, it could be surmised that this person was of some importance. Perhaps a high ranking Fundamentalist Scholar/Priest?

            TIf you did like I did and gave the book to the turtle, the workaround is to learn Law of Regression and go to the Radagon statue in the capital. Use Law of Regression and then report your findings to GOLD MASK and not Brother Corhyn.

              Law of Regression needing massive INT and not Faith seemed strange at first. Until I thought about it. All the faith in the world (gold mask and Bro Corhyn had that) wasn’t enough to solve the riddle of Radagon. It specifically needs a big brain full of intelligence not faith to cast. Nice work FromSoft for sneaking in these little details for us to enjoy!!

                  If you talk to the turtle, he will tell you about the statues. He says that it was created by a sculptor hired by radagon. But when the sculptor finished the statue, he realized the truth, and so radagon killed him.

                    I purchased the incantation from the turtle and it works! The incarnation requires INT 37. My stats were: INT 60, FTH 34. I reallocated my levels to INT 57, FTH 37. Went back and casted. Nothing. Then I tried casting while standing over the message on the floor and… violà!

                    So, I can’t say which stats are needed, INT or FTH, or both. But I can say purchasing the incantation from the turtle and casting over the message works. Good luck!

                      Not true. I purchased the incantation from the turtle and it works. Make sure your FTH is at least 37, and do the incantation while to stand on top of the message on the floor. * *My INT is at 37, as well. I am not sure if that is needed.

                        WARNING: If you give the book to the turtle the law of regression miracle will not work and you will not be able to proceed Corhyn's questline!!!

                        • Don't know if this works before Leyndell ... changes ... but to get the book after: go out the door on the second floor, turn left, jump down to the roof, jump into the open window, go around the walkway to where the root ends, walk along the root, pick up item.

                            From the site of grace level, climb the first root up to the 2nd floor. Then go right to outside and then directly left on the roof of the building. There is a broken windows which you can enter to get the Principia

                              from the root that brings you to the second floor, stand on the railing and you can run and jump up to the root where the book is

                              • In case Corhyn is dead because you have progressed to far into the game, you can still offer the Golden prayerbook to Miriel inside the Church of Vows, and learn Law of Regression .

                                  I think fromsoft literally misscoded Law of Regression it requires only 37 INT to be used not FAITH on a FAITH spell in all souls series before FAITH assiociates with healing and buffs but for some reason the spell wich removes all debuffs/ailments on you requires INT this is a FAITH vendor we talking about pretty sure this is a mistake

                                    Obtainable after beating up Godfrey and unlocking his grace site. It's above you, on the roots. From the grace look toward the big Erdtree to start your root climb.
