Done Upgrading your Character? Let's get down to the new chapter where you are going to deal with much higher difficulty enemies.

Once you get upstairs, you will be encountering some new types of enemies along with the Old Fat lady who is ever ready for hugs. SO head straight and then take the roof to get to the another side, kill all the enemies in your way. Then take the roof again to get down to the other side where four archers and one skeleton with a large Axe is waiting for you.

After dealing with them, head up until you find the giant door of the Cathedral. You will see a Giant waiting for you. Take right and head down where you find the Hallows throwing fire bombs at you, they are weak in health so two blows are enough for them. Keep coming forward, until you get another Big door which is actually the left Shortcut to Chapel. 

Now head back to take up the Giant, but first, we need to get to the other side of the Cathedral so without taking any damage keep to the other side and get up and kill those archers and the Old Fat Lady. Then head down and you will encounter Cathedral Knight who is strong but slow. After dealing with him go straight Huge Spider who is so fast with his attack you must try taking him down before heading to his room.
