Even though Dark Souls III isn’t out yet in North America (well it’s just a day away, really), there are already video guides littering the internet covering a lot of the different hidden secrets and items scattered throughout the game.
There’s a video guide from Shirrako covering how to get the Artorias of the Abyss armor. You can check out the video below.
Things start at the bonefire after killing Oceiros. You’ll need to head through the ruins of the shrine toward the back of the wall where the chest is. Strike the wall to open up the secret passageway that leads through a tunnel toward the Untended Graves.
Once you get to the Untended Graves, light the bonefire and continue to head through the passage lined with tombstones toward a rocky cliff’s edge.
Head down through the path that leads to the Heir of Fire. You’ll have to engage in a nice long boss fight before you can get to the next segment, but it’s well worth it if you’re up for the challenge.
Proceed onward through the double doors and head up the center of the steps to the right of the entryway.
You’ll need to take out a couple of knights as you head up the steps where there’s a citadel. If you travel into the citadel and head down the steps through the tunnel, you’ll be able to get to a merchant who carries the Artorias of the Abyss armor.
You can purchase the armor pieces off the merchant for a pretty penny. Each piece iis over 10,000 bucks, so you’ll need to make sure you’re stock piled before heading in.
Getting to the merchant can be tricky due to the knights guarding the entryway, but once they’ve been cleared out there aren’t too many worries other than having to defeat Champion Gundyr.
