Sealed Tunnel Walkthrough
Even though it looks like a "Sealed" Tunnel as its name says, there's a cavity that will open a secret path if you attack it.
There are many Miners that can be easily surprised as they are working. The mine keeps hiding paths, the second one is behind the chest that contains Smithing-Stone Miner's Bell Bearing (2).
You will find an elevator right after that and you will notice when you go down, that there are some areas to discover middle way down. It's very safe to jump of those areas, as you can jump your way down whenever you need to return to the main way, as there are some platforms and wooden structures that will ease the fall.
Once down, at the end of the path, there's another illusory wall, followed by another one with a Golden Rune (5) in front of it.
This next area is much bigger. Try to stay up on the wooden platforms and take out the enemies there, in the pit below there is an Abductor Virgin waiting. There is a path to the right containing a Stonesword Key. On the roots going across there is a Gold-Pickled Fowl Foot. In the pit below, try to lure out the abductor virgin to break the statue which contains three Smithing Stones (6). There is also a Rune Arc, Golden Rune (1), three Furlcalling Finger Remedy, and a Somber Smithing Stone (5) on the wall.
After collecting the items in the pit, return up the ladder & proceed across the roots to the far wall. Walk forward to a low root blocking your path & drop down to the right & be wary of two exploding Abnormal Stone Clusters at the landing site. The surrounding room is filled with multiple other exploding clusters & a few items that can be collected.
At the very end of the path, there's a Abnormal Stone Cluster ready to explode behind some debris, in a very dark cavity. Behind it there's another illusory wall.
Follow through and climb over the roots do reach another area to drop down. Be careful and keep easing your fall by falling short distances. As you fall watch for a smithing stone item on the wall, & a Lightning Grease on a corpse next to a large root. Be wary that the landing site holds another group of exploding stones so be ready to roll when landing. Once you have reached the bottom, you will see another corpse with a golden rune & an arena that contains the boss fight against Onyx Lord who drops the Onyx Lord's Greatsword.
In the next area you are able to see the sky again but the path is still linear. Here you'll find the next Site of Grace and the entrance to the Divine Tower of West Altus.

Margit's Shackle makes all these messages look very cute
This is a hugely important mid-game visit to unlock unlimited Smithing Stones to get gear up to +15. Not only do you get the bell bearing to unlock +3-4 smithing stones here but this is also a great place to farm +5 stones from the miners near the grace site.
I have 5 messages in front of that ladder, AMA.
The weapon art on the godslayer's greatsword destroyed this boss so quickly and easily it felt a little like I cheesed him. It's only the second weapon along with great-stars that I've liked enough to use one of my ancient dragon stones to fully upgrade. Black flame ritual cast uncharged buys enough time to use the godslayer's sword weapon art without taking a hit yourself and either getting knocked out of the animation or have to trade with a hard hitting boss. The exceptions would be enemies with pole arms, have access to a weapon art that can bypass the flame pillars or carry the enemy through them regardless of its damage negation or has a very high damage negation to the fire itself.
Is the ladder to get back up from where the iron virgin is bugged? some smart arse has left a message at the bottom of it and I don't get the option to climb. If that happens to anyone else where bloodstains and a message from someone nowhere near as clever as they think they are, switch to play offline in the options menu then save and reload, no bloodstains no message from an idiot and I got the prompt to climb.
The boss here does virtually no damage with his magic. I got hit twice, and each time got away with more than half of my health, which just doesn't happen to me anymore. I'm not built to take hits, I'd rather dodge them and cast. Based on my stats and damage taken, his meteor, which was the more damaging attack, does around either 437 damage or 466 damage, depending on the order in which defensive stats are taken into account (I don't know, so I calculated both). His orb-sling attack, then, does around either 284 or 313 damage, again depending on which order defensive stats are taken into account. These would be his unreduced damage values, so you should expect to take less.
It is unusual, but target lock doesn't work on any of the many Abnormal Stone Clusters here, which makes getting past them a little harder than I wish it were.
There's a Virgin Abductor construct at the bottom of the ladder and a destructible statue with stones inside. I recommend killing all the vulgar militia and getting the abductor to aggro on you from the platform above if you can, then keep aggro with something weak. Eventually it may decide to do a buzzsaw charge and so long as you stand on the platform perfectly above the statue it should run into it and crack it open for you, then it's just a matter of finishing it off.
It may take a moment to get the charge because of where your character is, but so long as you have something to keep it focused without killing it too fast you should be able to get the statue open without too much hastle before finishing the dungeon. If you climb down be aware of messages, people are horrible and leave them next to the ladder...
messages should be hidden once you downvoted it
Does anyone know where the somber smithing stone is located in this area I can’t find it for the life of me
Going offline removes any inconvenient message that may have been put there.
If there is a message at the bottom not allowing you to climb the ladder, stand facing the ladder on the left side, centered on the poll, and move your view around a little. I was able to get the "switch action" command to pop up.
Maidenless mfs putting a message infront of the ladder so you can't climb it. There is a special place in hell for you.
there seems to be an enemy type not listed on the wiki found here, the 'poisoned stone'-carrying miners which from my experience have unique drops when compared to the miners found in most tunnels, they drop poisoned stones and smithing stone 5 (they may also drop 4 OR 6)
You have to lure a large enemy to break those statues
seriously, wtf do you have to hit this statue with to get it to break? I got the construct to crash into it multiple times, even just spinning hitting it with his blades every time and it still doesn't break. Is my game bugged?
I literally cannot approach this Area. Anytime I do my game crashes.
Isn't the Lordsworn Straight Sword better than Longsword?
Why the f*ck did they gate this sh*t behind a god damn endgame area? Are you kidding me? You can't get infinite 3rd tier smithing stones until you're almost done with the god damn game? What a joke.
In the zone that you encounter the construct, don't kill it yet. There is a Statue with 3 smithing stone (6), you need to lure the construct to destroy the statue. There's also a somber smithing stone (5) in that zone.
And don't forget to kill all the thin dwarf looking guys before facing the construct.
There are 3 smithing stone  in the statue in the room where the construct/iron maiden attacks you. You need to stand next to the statue and then dodge just before it hits you so that the attack will break the statue and let you collect the stones.
when am i able to go here the earliest? anyone know. can i go there before defeating the third main story boss?
From Minor Erdtree SoG, to get down to where the cave entrance is, there is a ramp to the north.
