- The Saltfort: After crossing the battlements leading to Sinners' Rise, from The Lost Bastille, cross the room to the door way. Climb the ladder to the right of the doorway, and the bonfire is just at the top. It should be noted that this bonfire is in the line of fire of three crossbow-wielding Royal Swordsmen and can be shot at as soon as the player stands up. Players can remain safe when resting at the bonfire. Upon arrival for the first time, a Belfry Gargoyle (three for SotFS) can be seen, as well as heard, flying over the bridge towards Belfry Luna.
