A watery passage through a mountain. The Rat King covenant resides here.

Connections

Bonfires

General Notes

  • It's not possible to co-op here. Summoning and normal invasion methods are disabled.
  • Rat King Covenant members can use Bonfire Ascetics at the Ordeal's End bonfire (on the upper level before the Royal Rat Authority) to strengthen the area's enemies, making the zone more difficult for invading Gray Phantoms.
  • Enemies respawn infinitely inside the Rat King Covenant area. (Scholar of the First Sin)
