Unlimited Souls (Exploit)
Find a corpse with an item or souls, and grab the loot. Now make a fatal leap off the nearest ledge. As soon as you die, quickly press the appropriate button to bring up the option to quit your game. When you restart, you will be at the last bonfire with whatever you picked up from the body now located within your inventory. If you go find the body, the item should also be waiting on the body, allowing you to pick it up again and repeat the process as often as desired.
Secret Use for the Petrified Something
The Petrified Something is an optional starting item Gift in Dark Souls 2. Available during Character Creation, the item has no apparent purpose.
However, when placed in the bird's nest in the game's very first area, Things Betwixt, the Petrified Something may be exchanged a random item, from a near-useless Old Whip to the extremely precious Twinkling Titanite, an item which allows players to upgrade equipment otherwise resistant to improvement.
False Wall in No-Man's Wharf
Near the far edge of No-Man's Wharf is a small room full of jars containing poison. Two guards sleep at the table.
The wall behind them is false and can be blown out with a spell. Hidden behind are a number of Souls and the useful Royal Soldiers Ring.
More Difficult Gameplay with the Company of Champions
Just behind the village in Majula is the Victors Stone, a shrine to the Company of Champions. Joining this Covenant significantly increases the difficulty of Dark Souls 2, a fact not made crystal clear in the process of joining the cult. If you want to increase the challenge, (and potential rewards) of Dark Souls 2, join this company.
Easy Trick to Defeat The Pursuer
The Pursuer can be weakened 99% by a single shot from one of the Ballista set-pieces in his boss arena. Lining him up requires some pretty precise timing, but a clean hit all but destroys him.
Majula mansion key:
There is a locked two-story mansion in the back corner of Majula, just by the armor shop. To obtain the key that unlocks it, go to the Forest Of The Fallen Giants and near the bonfire you'll find a path on a road leading down next to the cliffs. Defeat the Cardinal Tower bonfire, then go down the ladder and
defeat the two enemies near the arched bridge. Once done, enter the door on the left and walk through the white mist to enter a tougher area. Walk up the sloping tree and drop down onto the rooftop to your right, then jump over to the scaffolding and enter the cave. Wait close to the entrance until a big
boulder rolls past, then continue up the passage to your left to reach the cartographer. Speak with the cartographer several times until he gives you the key, then return to the mansion door in Majula and open it. Deep inside the basement of the mansion is a map of the continent. Proceed down the steps into
a small ruin to find your reward; a Soul Vessel in a treasure chest and an Estus Flask upgrade on a dead body.
Forgotten Key Location:
- Travel to the Hidden Chamber Bonfire in the Black Gulch. Reach it by exploring the ledge to the right of the entrance into the Rotten's arena.
- From the bonfire, back track to the ledge looking over a deep pit. Bring a torch and follow the ledge until spotting a platform below. It should be near an area full of black pools where spider-like abyssal creatures ambush any undead.
- From the first platform, you'll find a locked Forgotten door. This leads into another encounter with Darkdiver Grandahl, which you'll need to unlock the Dark Chasm of the Abyss secret area.
- Look below, and drop down to a second, lower platform. Through the cave entrance, you'll find two Giants. Defeat them to earn the Forgotten Key. In the back of this area, you can also collect a Fragrant Branch of Yore from the treasure chest.
Forgotten Door Locations:
- The Black Gulch: Located above the giant cave described above. The door leads to Darkdiver Grandahl, who will open a portal to the Dark Chasm of the Abyss if you find all three of his locations.
- The Gutter: Located in a cave in the Gutter. Unlock to find Havel's armor set.
- Majula: Once you purchase a ladder, climb down to find another ladder leading to the locked door. Contains 3 treasure chests.
How to Find Havel's Armor:
Start from the first bonfire in the Gutter. From here, turn and jump down to another rickety building below where you'll find a ladder. Climb up and enter the dark cave full of poison-spitting figures. Fight through them, and open the forgotten door. There are even more poison-spitters inside, and a vase near the back wall. Smash it to collect Havel's Armor — one of the most useful heavy armor sets from Dark Souls 1.
How to Reach the Darklurker:
- Once you've opened the gate to the Dark Chasm of Old, you'll need to reach three sections of the area. In each one, you'll face a series of opponents to defeat.
- Bring them down, then light the sconce at the end with your torch. Light all three braziers to activate the elevator leading to the Darklurker after speaking with Grandahl.
- If you die in the Abyss, you'll have to offer a Human Effigy to Grandahl to re-open the portal.
- Once you're Rank 2 in the Covenant, the elevator inside the Dark Chasm of Old will activate. Travel there through the Drangleic Castle portal.
Where to Find the Secret Dragon Memory:
- Once you have the Ashen Mist Heart, travel to the Duke's Dear Freja arena. A new crystal will appear under the hollowed dragon. Interact with it to enter the Dragon Memory.
- This barren wasteland resembles the dragon battleground described in Dark Souls 1. Interact with the ancient dragon's corpse ahead to gain an Ancient Dragon Soul.
How To Unlock New Game Plus Mode:
The New Game + option returns in Dark Souls 2, to unlock it you first have to finish the game by defeating the final boss. After you kill the final boss, you'll get a prompt asking you if you want to continue your journey once again.
- By saying “Yes” you'll start the New Game + mode, where you'll encounter: greater challenges, once again face off against the game's bosses all alone; while still carrying over your inventory from the first playthrough.
- By saying “No” you'll still be able to play the game normally. And once you change your mind, you can go to the Far Fire bonfire in Majula and still choose the New Game + option.

Note: If you die in the Abyss you must offer a Human Effigy to Grandahl to re-open the portal. When you are Rank 2 in the covenant, the elevator inside the Dark Chasm Of Old will activate. Travel through the Drangleic Castle portal to reach it.
Secret Dragon Memory:
Towards the end of the game, you will have to travel to the Dragon Shrine to obtain the Ashen Mist Heart from the Ancient Dragon. The Ashen Mist Heart allows you to travel into the dark memories of the past. You can use the key on hollowed giants in the Forest Of Fallen Giants. You must fight the Giant Lord by entering one of these memories to proceed. However, there is also a secret place to use the Ashen Mist Heart. After obtaining the Ashen Mist Heart, travel to the Duke's Dear Freja arena, and a new crystal will appear under the hollowed dragon. Interact with it to enter the Dragon Memory.

In the Arena, kill the first Necromancer enemy, along with any nearby skeletons. Stay in the door area and cast Affinity. As the chariot drives past, the spell will hit it. In this manner, you can kill Executioner's Chariot boss without moving further into the area or lowering the gate.
Changing character's gender:
Go to the small beach that has two ogres immediately after Things Betwixt. Behind the ogres is a partially opened coffin. Enter the coffin to switch your character's gender.
Reaching Shulva – Sanctum City ("Crown Of The Sunken King" DLC):
First, make sure the Dragon's Talon is in your inventory. You can examine it in the "Key" section. Teleport to the Black Gulch bonfires. Travel to the "Hidden Chamber" bonfire by going along the right side cliff's edge outside the Rotten's area. Note: Defeat Rotten now if you have not already done so in order to reach the Primal Bonfire. Once there, you will see multiple stone obelisks with inscriptions.

the lock to access Shulva – Sanctum City. Note: The Ashen Mist Heart may also be required before the Dragon's Talon will unlock the gates.

Felkin is located at the very beginning of Huntsman's Corpse, before the first bonfire. You will need a base of 8 Faith and Intelligence in order to gain access to him. If you have 20 Faith or Intelligence, he will also give you the Hexer Set and Sunset Staff.
Defeating Elana, the Squalid Queen ("Crown Of The Sunken King" DLC):
When the battle starts, rush Elana and inflict as much damage as possible before she is able to react. Besides her skeleton summons, she can use flame attacks and a spear at close range. After the skeletons spawn, back up to avoid an ambush. You can ignore them unless they charge you. While attacking Elana, you will also be hitting the skeletons. Keep moving to avoid Elana's ranged flame spells and move toward her. If you can remain behind her while you attack, you can avoid most of her damage and some of the skeletons. Elana will occasionally teleport, then usually cast another spell when she reappears. Due to the length of her casting time, you can get one or two free hits before dodging the spell. Stay focused on Elana's back and continuously move to avoid her spells and attacks. You will be rewarded with the Soul of Elana, the Squalid Queen for defeating her. The large dragon door behind her will then open. Enter it to find a bonfire and mist doorway that leads to Sinh, the Slumbering Dragon.
