In-game Description

Lordvessel bestowed upon the chosen Undead who is destined to succeed Lord Gwyn.
The chosen Undead is granted the art of warping between bonfires.
To open the final door, place this vessel on the Firelink Altar, and fill it with powerful souls.



The Lordvessel has two uses:


The Lordvessel allows instant warping between Bonfires, with caveats:

  • You may only warp to bonfires at which you have already rested

End Game access

After you put the Lordvessel at the Firelink Altar, a cutscene will show the disappearances of several yellow fog gates, granting access to several areas:

  • The last cave in the Tomb of the Giants
    The yellow fog gate after you exit the darkened area, on the ledge where you can see Ash Lake from

The vessel itself is used to deposit the Lord Souls needed to open the gate to the Kiln of the First Flame:


  • Bonfires that are near covenants are all warpable. The only covenant which is not immediately accessible via a bonfire is the Forest Hunter Covenant.
  • The ability to warp is not lost once the Lordvessel is deposited onto the Firelink altar.
  • If you decide to put the Lordvessel on the Firelink Altar on your own by dropping into the hole without talking to either Frampt or Kaathe, they will both abandon you and will not be available for the rest of the game. This may be because each serpent thinks you're siding with the other one.
  • After warping, the bonfire you warp from is still considered your active checkpoint, so items and abilities like Homeward Bone will still warp you to your original location, and if you die, you will return to your location prior to warping. This allows you to warp to and from remote bonfires, as long you do not rest at another bonfire.
  • When you patch your game to 1.06 after you already visited all of non-Additional Content bonfires, you need to revisit them to make them appear in the bonfire Warp menu selection.
