Leyndell Catacombs Walkthrough

The Catacombs are three loops of very similar paths and enemies. On the first floor right after the Leyndell Catacombs site of grace is a sealed room containing the Esgar, Priest of Blood Boss fight. Continuing past the sealed boss room is a coffin in the center in a pool of water. As you continue on there will be a few rooms with enemies and a hall with a flame statue. Jumping onto the flame statue will take you to a balcony with a dead end room containing one Omen. Following the halls just before the flame statue and you will end up overlooking a similar looking area with a coffin in a pool of water. This is the second floor and start of the loop. Jumping down and running towards where the site of grace would be you will see an opened set of doors leading to a copy of the boss room with two Omen and a dead end where the site of grace was. Head back to the room with the coffin and go up the stairs. As you continue on there will be a few rooms with enemies and a hall with a flame statue. Jumping onto the flame statue will take you to a balcony with a room that now has a hallway and two Imps. Continue along this path and you will end up overlooking the coffin in a pool of water on the first floor. There will also be a lever on it to pull and active the door on the first floor of the Catacomb to reach the boss. On the second floor following the hall just before the flame statue will end with you overlooking a coffin in a pool of water, this is the third floor and is not required for the boss. After jumping down there is only one way to go from the pool of water. Where there would normally be a fire stature is instead just an inaccessible balcony that an Omen will drop down from. Continuing on you will come to a window overlooking the set of double stairs on the second floor.

        Just to put it out there, neither of the omen in the false boss room can get through the doors at the top of the stairs, they're only half open. both can be pulled back to the stairs then easily killed without landing a single hit on you. I don't remember what, if anything, was in there to loot, but its well worth killing those two anyway. it allows you to draw the next horned omen you run into back to the empty boss room, but this time kill it from the stairs, again without getting hit yourself and without any interference from the two originally in there, this being possible is something that seems to be different, maybe even unique to the enemies in this catacomb, usually an enemy will only chase you a certain distance, before they slowly make their way back to where they originally were, but a horned omen chased me from where I first attacked it, down the stairs, through a long corridor then past the room with the water and coffin all the way to the false boss room. it did stop once or twice and wasn't being agro, but as soon as I hit it with a poison arrow it would start chasing me again. I'm going to try this with all the horned omen on that level, if it works they'll be much less of a pain in the arse to deal with.

          when you look at the 3D map it seems like the catacomb is a lot bigger than you'd think it was from reading the walkthrough. I don't see it mentioned, but anyone reading this page and maybe feeling the dungeon is going to be more trouble than its worth, this catacomb does allow you to fast travel out to any grace you have unlocked on the world map without needing to beat the boss first, so running out of flasks or deciding you just can't be bothered isn't as big a problem here as it would be in the other dungeons where you have to commit by making a one way drop to a lower level, you wont need to spend all your runes to use 'memory of grace'.

            This catacomb is nasty. The horned omen are using some sort of death flame, not just a breath attack like they do in the shunning grounds, they buff their sword with it as well. I've just been killed by one while I was carrying a hundred and forty thousand runes plus change. I don't know where I was when I died so I'm hoping the indicator on the compass that shows where dropped runes can be picked up will help me find my way back, assuming I can get that far without dying again in the first place. I don't know if this is obvious to everyone, but poison darts, poison arrows and volcano pots work a treat on the omen.

            • Do you need a key from the dung guy at Roundtable Hold to access this area? I tried him with a Deathroot, speaking to him, and he just tells me to go away repeatedly.

                I actually thought it was a really neat dungeon. A super tricky touch they put was the extra-horned omen looking at the dead shaved-horn omen we had "supposedly killed" a floor up. That really tickled my brainstem first run

                    I realized what was going on immediately, however I'm still lost.
                    I've reached a point with the window overlooking the statue and I somehow continuously loop the 'same' path.
                    I don't get it, lmao.

                      Big gameplay-story segregation here, why the f**k would they build a catacomb with 3 seperate, identical floors to get lost in?

                      • I think there is an issue with the directions. I just ran through it using glowstones to track progress and it is confirmed by the map that we have.

                        1st floor
                        - Sealed boss room,
                        -Progressing along this level normally will lead you to the second floor
                        -there is a fire statue that will take you to a balcony with 1 omen.

                        2nd floor
                        - unsealed copy of the boss room with 2 omen,
                        -Progressing along this level normally will lead you to the third floor
                        -there is a fire statue that will take you to a balcony with NO omen and a corridor that leads you to the leaver and back to the 1st floor.

                        3rd floor
                        -There is no copy of the boss room
                        -Progressing along this level will drop you halfway through the 2nd floor
                        -There is no fire statue

                        This is also confirmed by the map we have. Notice on the map that the highest level is smaller than the 2 bellow and has no fire statue. This makes the third floor fully optional. I will leave this up for few days to let people test for themselves before changing the wiki.

                          Either this dungeon was nerfed and shortened or half the people in the comments have zero spatial awareness. This map is wrong, too. This place has a single fire totem and two floors. It has one set of boss doors, no snail caller, and other than two omen all of the other mobs were the spitting zombie and 3 exploding kamikaze zombie.

                            what ended my first attempt was that there was a corpse of an enemy from a previous floor on one of the lower floors. not sure if intended, but it gave the impression that enemies just respawn in this dungeon for some reason

                              remember that this maze have 3 floors that look almost identical. if you dont pay attention you might get tricked by that.

                                  I actually really liked this dungeon and its probably my favorite. it was 11:30pm and I already had a few drinks, not so much that I was drunk or anything, but that I was vibing. I came across this dungeon and I was soo tripped out until I figured out what was going on

                                    So I went through the whole thing, used the lever, and then got ambushed by the Omen in the boss room and died, went back and now the door to the boss room is closed and the lever gives me no prompts anymore, just updated the game to 1.06.
                                    This is the catacombs in the non-Ashen Leyndell, so not sure if it's meant to do that or if my **** bugged out. Also there was no boss fog gate, just the lever door which closed on me, but I assume that's meant to be like that since it was just regular Omens.

                                      Top shelf level design. Absolutely hilarious. Loved the detail of the Omen looking at the corpse of another omen at the same point as where you'd fought one on a different loop.

                                          There is no Ghost Glovewort (9) here, only GRAVE Glovewort (9). How about actually reading the item you collected before writing a guide, eh?

                                            Ghost Glovewort (6) x1
                                            Ghost Glovewort (8) x1

                                              Guys, there is indeed Glovewort (9), except it is Grave, not the Ghost one. On 3D map, it's in the room directly above two flamethrower traps. There is sword fattie ambush in this room so be careful. Also two Grave Glovewort (8)'s on the way.

Especially at the stairwell where one of the Ogres was checking out his dead buddy, the one I thought I killed. All the grave/ghost gloveworts "suddenly" popping up was the sugar on top.

                                                          The guide is wrong. There is only the original loop, and a clone of the loop with an extra tunnel that leads you back into it. The fastest way to get through this is by going through the original until you drop through to the copy, and then run to the imp statue to ride it up.

                                                                            The catacombs are 3 copies of itself. You're going to go through the dungeon and then you're going to find yourself overlooking the same exact room you thought you started in. Its going to look like a tomb in water surrounded by enemies. This actually isn't the start and is the next area. You may find little hints like finding materials like Glovewort where there wasn't any previously. Anyways, keep running through the dungeon and continue the same exact path. Eventually you might end up at a window that leads to the same tomb area. If you made it to the window you went too far. Go back to the statue that shoots fire and ride it upwards. There will be a new path. Follow that path and it will eventually lead you to ANOTHER water tomb area but this time there will be a lever. Yes its annoying and took me too long to figure it out.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous
