Walkthrough for Sage's Cave in Elden Ring
Past the Site of Grace, make your way forward until you reach an apparent dead end. There is an illusory wall here.
Jump down this waterfall, then pick up two Golden Rune (5). To your left is an illusory wall with four skeletons and four chests behind it.
Four skeletons await you in the next room, among which is one with a large axe and more health. Another one faces a wall which is illusory, hiding a chest containing a Stonesword Key.
The next room holds three more chests with Golden Greatarrow x10, Raptor Talons, and Dragonwound Grease x4. Proceed until you are in an open cave with a waterfall, jump to the left, then hug the left wall and roll into the apparent dead end to uncover two more chests with Raptor's Black Feathers and Skeletal Mask.
Make your way back to the waterfall and stay left to face the other boss, the invisible Black Knife Assassin.
If you buy Sentry's Torch from the Hermit Merchant for 7000 Runes, you can put it in your off-hand to make her visible (even if you two-hand your main-hand weapon). One strategy is to fight her (without buying the item) is to simply stand on the patch of dirt, and watch for her footsteps in the water. You'll have to time your swing to hit her -- a weapon with a horizontal attack spread makes this easier.
After defeat, she drops the Concealing Veil.
