Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin

  • The bridge that appears after the bonfire is now blocked by a petrified hollow. However, the ladder next to the bonfire is now automatically dropped down, so you can work through the Dragon Aerie backwards, or skip it all together now.
  • The Guardian Dragons will not wake up to attack you unless you either attack them, or break eggs near them. This means you can carefully kill the Crystal Lizards without fighting the Guardian Dragons. If an enemy breaks one of the eggs, this does not seem to wake the dragons. Also, the Moon Butterfly Set will wake them immediately if you get too close. You can make them go back to sleep by resting at the bonfire.



  • There are eleven Crystal Lizards around so stay sharp.
  • On the outcrop with two sets of bridge posts, grab onto the zip line to access the area above the bonfire, and kick the ladder to open the shortcut.
  • If you stand on the final long bridge that's swaying with the wind for too long, a Drake will jump on it and rip it in half, making you fall to your death like in the trailer. This happens faster depending on how many dragon eggs in the area you've broken.
  • Near all three dragons, there are "safe-zones" you can snipe them from. Dragon must be aggroed. First, through the hole in the floor from below. Second, stand above the ledge with a Pharros Lockstone. Third, from across the rope bridge near the shortcut. Poison arrows are recommended for this.
  • Royal Sorcerer Navlaan will invade half-way through the area if you pulled the lever in Aldia's Keep.
