Deeproot Depths Walkthrough: How to Find It

The main way to access Deeproot Depths is by entering the coffin just beyond the Great Waterfall Basin, shortly after the boss fight with the Valiant Gargoyle. This will take you to a new area where you can touch a Site of Grace, and begin your journey into the Deeproot Depths.

Deeproot Depths Walkthrough: Find Your Way to the Nameless Eternal City

To begin, touch the Great Waterfall Crest Site of Grace. Just beyond it is an Erdtree Avatar, which can prove a punishing foe due to its reach and devastating attacks. Carefully chip away at its health to defeat it for the Staff of the Avatar. Then, search the area for Ghost Glovewort [4]. In the area with the Giant Ants, behind the Erdtree Avatar, is a Teardrop Scarab which drops the Ash of War: Golden Land.

Head across the roots to the west, and look for a cave north-west filled with Giant Ants. Follow this all the way around to get Elden Stars. Then, continue west across the roots until you reach land. In the area with many Flying Ants you can loot some useful goodies, like Warming Stones and Golden Runes. Grab them and activate the Deeproot Depths Site of Grace not far beyond.

Head north from the Site of Grace to some ruins, where you'll see a gazebo on your left. Among this is the Map for the area, which will make navigation easier. Head towards the waterfall opposite this area, and behind it is a cave with a Giant Bear inside. Kill it for the Prince of Death's Cyst. Then return to the gazebo and into the building directly opposite it for the Ash of War: Vaccuum Slice. From here, you can head southwest to The Nameless Eternal City Site of Grace.

Interestingly, west of here are dozens of corpses which you can loot for Golden Runes and Smithing Stones, as well as a coffin which you can get in to reach the Ainsel River Main. You're going to want to head north for now, however, southwest from the Walking Mausoleum to behind a building where there's a Spirit Spring. Use it to get on top of the building for a Stonesword Key.

Jump down onto the raised area for a fight against Crucible Knight Siluria. He shouldn't prove too challenging, but you can use Summon Spirits if you need to. Defeat him and he'll drop Siluria's Tree, then head into the area he was guarding to open the chest and grab the Crucible Tree Set.

Head all the way east from here to a ruin next to the cliff for a Somber Smithing Stone [9] and Mausoleum Soldier Ashes. Now you want to return south, up the hill, and use the roots to climb up the buildings. Among the tower is the Prince of Death's Staff, while on the opposite side, to the east, is the Across the Roots Site of Grace. Head through the opening to continue Fia's quest, and for boss fights against Fia's Champions and the Lichdragon Fortissax.
