|Shrine of Amana - Chest|
The Manslayer can be found after beating the Demon of Song in the Shrine of Amana. After defeating the boss, along the way to the Undead Crypt there will be a walkway made out of rocks that are submerged in water. This walkway will lead to a tower and the Rise of the Dead bonfire. Climb up the stairs and you will see a door that may only be opened while the character is hollow. You cannot open the door while you are human (The quickest way to open to door is to simply jump in the deep water near the door so that your character would die, but make sure you lit the bonfire below first so that you can respawn near the door). Open the door and kill the enemies. At the end of the walk way there will be a Milfanito and a large altar of fire which has the ability to make you Human again, provided you have no Human Effigies in your inventory. Head down the stairs behind the Milfanito. Upon exiting the small tower, the character will come to a small set of stairs that leads to nowhere but water, but there are two chests on the sides of the staircase, with one chest on each side. The chest containing the Manslayer will be on the left side of the staircase.
