Taylew's Ruined Forge: Walkthrough

Once you've rested at the Site of Grace, head down the passage to be greeted by a full view of Taylew's Ruined Forge. You'll get a Golden Rune [10] off the corpse on the balcony, then the staircase down to your left presents a linear path down to a small area where you can jump across to the other side and grab a Smithscript Axe off a corpse guarded by one of the rock enemies. Now, drop down to the floor below.

Jump onto the stone cylinder running diagonally through the middle of the area, and cross to the other side to pick up some Smithing Stones and the Smithscript Greathammer. Now you can jump back onto the stone cylinder and run up to the top, jumping off on the left-hand side first to pick up an Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone from a corpse along with other Smithing Stones. From that same corpse, jump back across onto the stone cylinder, then drop down onto its right-hand side this time at the top.

In the back room with all the rock enemies and lava foes, drop down through the gap in the fence on the left, and you'll find a ladder to climb up at the end of the corridor to your immediate right. At the top, you'll find a lever that changes the position of the stone cylinder in the centre. Climb back onto it and run up to the top, dropping off on the left-hand side, where you can Examine altar to earn a new Spirit Summon called Taylew the Golem Smith and a second Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone. Interacting with the altar completes Taylew's Ruined Forge.
