Sellia, Town of Sorcery Walkthrough

Sellia, Town of Sorcery is a massive ghost town on the eastern side of Caelid. These ruins are chock-full of collectibles to find. However, exploring this location can be quite perilous as it is filled with Ghostly versions of Noble Sorcerers, Raya Lucaria SorcerersTwinsage Sorcerers and Raya Lucarian Wardens. While they use mostly the same attacks and boast the same behaviors as their physical counterparts, the thing that sets them apart is that they are invisible until you are near them, which prevents you from targeting them until they are seen. Furthermore, they can fire their spell projectiles while remaining invisible. Some of them can even teleport away from you. It is highly recommended that you call on a Spirit Summon while exploring. Your summons can detect invisible enemies and will usually rush towards them and draw their fire.

There are several small rooms on the outsides of the buildings here that are initially sealed by a barrier which can be dispelled by lighting a brazier on a tower. There are three such braziers in this town and your first priority should be to find them. Make a bee-line straight for a very large staircase in the northeast section of town. Halfway through the staircase, you can find a large root jutting out and extending to one of the buildings to the right. This is the easiest way to get onto the rooftops where several collectibles can also be found. You will be jumping from building to building and occasionally some roots to navigate the rooftops. Remember that you can always summon Torrent for his double jump capability should you find the platforming too difficult.

First & Second Braziers

From the first building connected to the staircase root,  get onto the next building in the west using another root extending towards it. Now jump onto the building to the south, you should be able to land the corner of the roof. Look at the building southwest from here and take out the Marionette Soldier sitting on the roof and then jump onto the lower roof of  that building. You can get to the higher roof via the root wrapping around the west side of it. Continue on south and jump on the branch of the gigantic root you see ahead of you. Watch out for a Marionette Gargoyle swooping in from the left. Look at the western end of the gigantic root to find a Teardrop Scarab which drops the Ash of War: Double Slash. Now follow the gigantic root east and up on a building and then turn to the south and jump over another root to land on the roof of a long building. Follow the roof west to find a corpse sitting on a ledge. You can loot a Stonesword Key off this corpse. Continue west and you should be on a roof with a ladder leading up to the southwest brazier. Light it up to unlock several barriers in town.

Go back down and across through the long building and climb up the gigantic root here. Follow it northeast to get to another tower with another brazier. This unlocks a barrier at the top of the staircase from earlier. Go around the tower and jump down the roof of the building to the north. Follow this long stretch of roofs to the building at the end which has a corpse on top from which you can loot the Cerulean Tear Scarab helm.

Third Brazier

Now you can drop down to the ground level and go through the central alleyway. Look to your right to find a large red painting under some rubble. Inspecting it gives you the Redmane Painting. Continue north through the alley and look to your right for a formerly sealed room with a chest containing the Night Comet spell. At the end of the street, just before the large staircase, head southeast up the other stairs here, make the first left and then on the left will be another formerly sealed room with a chest that contains an Imbued Sword Key. Now head back to the large staircase from earlier and follow it all the way up to find a Phantom Tree with a Golden Seed underneath. From the tree, face the southwestern edge of the platform and drop down onto the root below. Follow the root and jump onto the building on your right using the mutated growth as a stepping stone. There should be another ladder here that leads to the third brazier. Lighting it unlocks the boss door in the northwest but before you head there, get back onto the root and stand at the very end of it to jump on the building to the south. Drop down onto the balcony on the right to loot the corpse for a Staff of Loss. Check the room directly under this balcony for a chest containing the Spelldrake Talisman +1. If you head down the steps west of here and follow the walls north, you can find a dilapidated building with some Rotten Strays nearby. There is a corpse with the Rotten Stray Ashes in here.

That covers all the notable loot in the town proper. There are other things to find in the area, but they are mostly consumables/crafting materials. Check our Interactive Map for this town to get a better sense of where everything is located.

When ready, go back up the steps and proceed to the northwest, past the giant staircases, through a very tall stone arch to find the boss door.

Boss: Nox Swordstress & Nox Priest

This is a Duo Boss fight. There is nothing too notable about these bosses. Using a decently leveled summon will make this quite the trivial encounter. The Swordstress uses a sword with a whip-like function to attack at medium range while the Priest uses spells from afar. Both are highly susceptible to magic damage and are easily staggered out of any combos they can potentially perform. Upon defeating the duo, you are awarded the Nox Flowing Sword which is the same sword the Swordstress uses. Check the building to the north of their chamber for a chest that contains Lusat's Glintstone Staff which is the weapon that the Priest was using.

After defeating the bosses, head back to the large staircase and through the previously sealed archway to find the Sellia Backstreets Site of Grace

      I hope a future dlc will add more to explore in this town. As of now, it feels kinda empty for a place with ties to the underground cities and the night/dark magic, it must be hiding something from us, the same way the underground cities are

      • Tried to get the acedemy staff here but it appears that the sorcerers don't drop anythin at all. The noble ghosts drop their **** all the time so I assumed the raya sorcerers drop stuff too. But even after 100+ kills I didn't get anything. Do they even have a loot table?

          so pretty useless information, but just figured out that when starting from bonfire you can easily jump up the big root and reach the holy scarab above.

            Stormhawk Deenh is really helpful in this area because he spots the hidden enemies and dive-bombshell them immediately - saved me from a lot of sneak attacks!

                  I appreciate the effort that goes into these walk-throughs, but sometimes it's just easier to explore on your own and just look at the walk-through to make sure you didn't miss any items

                      If you do the boss cheese for this area where you jump into the arena from the branch it locks the barriers even after lighting the braziers if anyone was wondering.

                        Is there any lore regarding what Sellia's connection was to Raya Lucaria (were they competing with each other? were they cooperating?) and why is it a ghost town?

                          I picked up a note that says, "There is a hidden cave in the town of Sellia. Look beyond the graveyard at the precipice." Anyone know where this cave is exactly?

                              Rotten Stray Ashes are north and slightly east of of sellia under stair site of grace about 50 ft. Directions above are just weird.
