But if you want to defeat the Dragon Kin soldier boss and obtain the Dragonscale Blade Katana, you must activate the pillars found around Lake of Rot to create platforms on which you can stand and avoid Rot. 

You can quickly identify the said pillars as they have overgrown mushrooms. 

Once you reach Grand Cloister and activate the Site of Grace, you can descend to the lower levels using broken platforms, as shown in the above screenshot. 

You can make your way to the above-marked room while dealing with the Pest-type enemies to obtain the Scarlet Rot dagger, Scorpion’s Stinger. Once you grab it, you can take the left path and interact with the Coffin to reach Astel, Naturalborn of the Void boss arena.

  • Preserving Boluses
  • Incantations like Flame, Cleanse Me
