The Infected Monk can be found locked inside a cell in the Cell Circle portion of the Catacombs area. Speaking with him, he asks you to put him out of his misery.

To do this, we need to activate the lever to his right – but there is no lever handle! This can be found on the opposite side of the Cell Circle inside a wooden door near a statue and a large decorative level (we need to pull this to open the arena for the boss fight with the Champion).

Enter the wooden door near the lever (left) for a Lever Handle item. Use this to open the Infected Monk's cell and kill him (right) to complete the side-quest.

Now return to the Infected Monk’s cell and use the Lever Handle on the broken lever. This will open the doors. Kill the monk for 1,500XP and a Spell Point Shard . Enter the door to the right of the lever for a Shield (Buckler - Blocker) .

Lords of the Fallen takes us on a journey to a dark and mysterious world where the lands of Keystone are under attack from an interdimensional demonic army. Join Harkyn: a branded, outcast criminal who is freed to seek his redemption through a bid to bring the invaders to their knees. Lords of the Fallen takes many of its cues and gameplay mechanics from the notoriously difficult Dark Souls series (and can be a little tricky itself at times) but puts some new and interesting spins on From Software’s winning formula.

Let us guide you through Harkyn’s adventure every step of the way. Our comprehensive guide will provide you with:

  • Complete walkthrough from beginning to end.
  • Complete list of side-quests incorporated into the main walkthrough.
  • Winning strategies to take down the assortment of nasty bosses.
  • Strategies to fight each type of enemy.
  • Locations of every collectible, including those found only in New Game +.
  • Locations of all the unique/legendary items.
  • Locations of every Empty Bottle and Attribute/Spell Point Shard.
  • Achievement/trophy unlock guide.
