Dark Souls II

Cheat Codes:
Submitted by: David K.

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.

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.

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.

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 
* 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 
* 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.

Soul Vessels Item Locations:
1: Inside the locked mansion in Majula. Learn how to acquire the mansion key here. 
   Open the chest in the back of the mansion to find the first Soul Vessel.
2: After bringing four merchants to Majula, speak with Crestfallen Saulden and he’ll 
   reward you.
3: Behind a Pharros Lockstone in the Lost Bastille. Near McDuff’s Workshop, found 
   behind wooden planks.
4: Inside Drangleic Castle, after reaching the huge elevator tower. At the top of 
   the lift, look in the chest behind the strange cage.
5: At the Undead Crypt, you’ll be able to create a shortcut by lowering a bridge.
   Look down and drop onto the platform below the shortcut.
6: Remember where you first met the Pursuer? After acquiring the means to enter 
   memories, interact with the fallen giant tree to create the Memory of Orro. A 
   Soul Vessel can be found here.

Change Character Gender:
Right after Things Betwixt, in the game's first area, you should notice a small beach
with two ogres. Behind those ogres, you'll see a partially opened coffin. If you hop 
into the coffin, you can switch your character's gender. The coffin apparently does 
not serve any other purpose.

Option Boss: Darklurker:
This secret boss is located in the Dark Chasm Of Old, past a series of powerful 
enemies. Also, joining the "Pilgrims Of Dark" covenant and reaching Rank 2 is 
required. After opening the gate to the Dark Chasm Of Old, you must reach and defeat
a series of enemies in three sections in the area. Defeat the enemies in each section,
and light the sconce at the end with your torch. Light all three braziers and talk 
to Grandahl to activate the elevator leading to the Darklurker. 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. You will be taken to an arid wasteland resembling the dragon battleground 
described in the original Dark Souls. Interact with the ancient dragon's corpse to
acquire an Ancient Dragon Soul.

to the Old Firekeepers in Things Betwixt. The Soul Vessel is a rare item that can only
be used once. The Soul Vessel can be found at the following locations:

1.It is inside the locked mansion in Majula. Use the "Opening the mansion door in Majula"
  hint to learn how to enter the mansion. Open the chest in the back of the mansion to 
  obtain a Soul Vessel.
2.After bringing four merchants to Majula, speak with Crestfallen Saulden to be rewarded

Easy Trick to Defeat the Executioner's Chariot Boss:
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. Interact with the center obelisk to teleport
to a room with a massive doorway. Interact with the gates and use the Dragon's Talon to open
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.

some souls and the Royal Soldiers Ring.

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.

Defeating Executioner's Chariot:

area, and cast Affinity. It will hit the chariot as it drives past. Repeat this process to

Vendrick's Blessing and True King's Crown:

King" from their respective DLCs. Then, enter the Memory Of The King, using the following 
steps. Open the gates at the Shrine Of Winter, and enter Drangleic Castle. Uncover the 
hollowed King Vendrick in the Undead Crypt, get the King's Ring, and enter Aldia's Keep. 
Reach the Ancient Dragon, and obtain the Ashen Mist Heart. Interact with King Vendrick's 
armor in the chamber at the end of the Undead Crypt to enter the Memory Of The King. Talk
to King Vendrick, and for each DLC crown obtained, there will be a specific dialog. If all
three have been obtained, each of the crowns will be given a new effect after a short 
cutscene. While equipped, death no longer results in a hollow, and you cannot be cursed. 
If you have also defeated King Vendrick and obtained the King's Crown along with the three
DLC crowns, it will be upgraded to a new version, named the "True King's Crown".

Tower Key ("Crown Of The Old Iron King" DLC):
The Tower Key can be found on the large ashen cliffs. Find a large jutting rock platform
that is covered with ash corpses in the lower levels of the tower. The area is patrolled

Shrine Of Winter. Interact with the Shrine Of Winter altar to teleport to a room with
