Andre of Astora
Andre of Astora


A blacksmith residing in the old church building in Undead Parish. Specialized in physical path and Magic weapon enchantments using Faith


Undead Parish
Next to the main church building is a stone bridge (guarded by 2 sword-wielding and 1 crossbow-wielding Undead Soldiers) that goes out towards the forest. Halfway through the bridge, you will hear metals clanging. Follow this path to a small structure (the old church). The old church has 3 floors, the top is a ruined temple, the middle floor has a bonfire and bridge to Sen's Fortress and the lowest level is where Andre will be working. Also down a short staircase from Andre is a large room with a Prowling Demon.

  • If you answer "No" when he asks for any ember, he will keep asking the player the next time you start a conversation with him.
  • Beware of accidentally making him hostile; for whatever reason, he is an incredibly strong NPC capable of easily smashing your guard with his punch combos or drop kick attacks. If you do want to kill him for whatever reason, block his punches with a high-stability shield, roll his drop kick and backstab him as he gets up.
  • If you give Andre the Very Large Ember before the Large Ember you may not be able to upgrade past +5 or to any Raw weapons, this also applies for other ember types.
  • This NPC has unused dialogue lines.
