The lost city of Izalith was once a proud place with Dravidian themed architectures and temples inside a huge cave, but has long since been flooded with lava and its ruins are guarded by Bounding Demon of Izalith. It's a nasty place that can only be traversed with the Orange Charred Ring (or appropriate spells).

General notes

  • You can't access the area boss before the orange fog has been lifted by placing the Lordvessel.
  • There are two bonfires in this area - one right after the fight with the Centipede Demon, and a second one hidden behind an illusory wall in the base of the second, bigger black tower.
  • Equip the Orange Charred Ring, because this area will require you to mainly travel across lava.
  • Have your armor fully repaired, or otherwise wear armor with a high durability. The constant walking through lava runs down your armor very fast. A Repairbox or Repair Powder is recommended! You can also simply remove all of your armor while traversing the lava.
  • The huge Bounding Demon of Izalith in this area do not respawn. They will completely ignore you if you do not get too close.
  • The first black tower is a good spot to drag the Bounding Demon of Izalith to, because they can't enter and can be killed off with ranged attacks from this safe spot. Note: they can sometimes sweep their legs in and the only safe zone is against the back wall of the tower.
  • Some of the Bounding Demons can be sniped with arrows from the shortcut passage after you kill the Prowling Demon on it. Using a Hawk Ring is recommended.
  • Lost Izalith is flooded with demons due to the Witch of Izalith's failed attempt to recreate the First Flame using Pyromancy. The demons are the old citizens of Izalith.


  • Solaire of Astora - will appear at the first bonfire in the next area, past the centipede battle, provided you have followed his story so far.


Lost Izalith Map

  1. Equip the Orange Charred Ring. From the first bonfire walk straight up to a root that leads to an open part with a lot of Bounding Demon of Izalith. Since they do not respawn they may be easily killed one after another with rests at the nearby bonfire in between.
  2. Look around and find a huge black tower, roughly located to the right when you entered this area. Check if there are not any enemies around the way to that tower or try to run. There are Demonic Statues at this tower and the next. Inside the tower is a chest containing a Soul of a Great Hero.
  3. Now look around until you see the second black tower. This tower has a hidden wall. It's the one beneath the pillar. Remove the wall and you'll see the second bonfire here. Activate it, it's the last one before the boss area.
  4. Now walk straight out from the new found bonfire up to something that looks like a roofed bridge that crashed down. There you can get up to the next area, it's full of Demonic Statues. Either kill them or run past them until you get up to a large stone stair.
  5. Atop of the large stone stair sits a Chaos Eater. Kill it and turn right and go up the stairs. Here you will be challenged by the Daughter of Chaos. She will not respawn, so you only need to defeat her once. Black Phantom Kirk Knight of Thorns may also appear under certain conditions. To avoid engaging both at once, aggro the Daughter of Chaos and draw her back to the stairs where you fought the Chaos Eater before you get to the point where Kirk is summoned.
  6. After the stairs on your left you'll see the fog leading to the boss of this area The Bed of Chaos - ignore this for now. Note that after defeating the boss, you cannot come back to Lost Izalith directly; but need to warp out through a Bonfire. If you wish to acquire all the treasure, take your time to explore and loot everything before you beginning your attack on the boss.
  7. Continuing past the fog door leads to a dead end with a Chaos Eater guarding a chest. The chest contains the Chaos Fire Whip Pyromancy.
  8. Return to the foot of the stair where you first met the Daughter of Chaos and take the tree root down to the lower area containing numerous Demonic Statues. Kill all the Demonic Statues while you're exploring. To the left of the tree root you just descended is a collapsing floor, to the right is a bridge that leads back to the Demon Firesage boss door.
  9. The collapsible floor leads to a poison pit with a Red Titanite Slab, Red Titanite Chunk x2 and walled with Chaos Eaters. If you have followed the Siegmeyer of Catarina story so far, he should make an appearance here. Take the time to read his story in order to make the most of this encounter.
  10. The bridge to the right contains a Prowling Demon who drops Demon Titanite x2. Be aware that he is a particularily tough specimen that you might want to run past for now (he also respawns and drops Demon Titanite every time you kill him, making this a prime location to farm).
  11. Past the Prowling Demon is a Crystal lizard, Chaos Bugs, and then possibly Solaire of Astora before reaching the shortcut

Shortcut to Lost Izalith from Demon Ruins

You'll find the shortcut to Lost Izalith in Demon Ruins just outside the room where you fought the Demon Firesage boss. As you face that room, look to the right, and you'll see a hole in the wall. Use the tree roots to reach the ground floor and then go to the end of the long hall where you'll find a locked door.

To unlock that door from Demon Ruins, join the Covenant of the Chaos Servant and level that Covenant to +2 rank. That will require 30 Humanity to raise the Covenant that high. After you raise the Covenant to +2, then you can touch the locked door and it will open. Using this shortcut makes the Demon Firesage and Centipede Demon optional. However, you don't need to be in the convenant to open the door from Lost Izalith, if you get past the Titanite Demon, so the only reason to join the Chaos Servant convenant is to open the door sooner or to complete the saving Solaire quest (this can also be done without joining the covenant, check Solaire of Astora page for more details).

However, the circular area in the cavern beyond Quelaag's Domain adjacent to the Quelaag's Sister area will unlock as an elevator after defeating the Demon Firesage. It descends to the stairway area connected to Centipede's lair and with a short drop to Firesage's lair, providing inside access to the whole Demon Ruins as well as a key short cut to Izalith. This makes backtracking with the Orange Charred Ring to get the Chaos Flame Ember convenient and returning to the area is a breeze with the warp attached to this covenant.
