Grand Archives

Once you defeat the Dragonslayer Armor in Lothric Castle, you will get your entrance in the Grand Archives. Rest on the Bonfire and head straight to find another Bonfire of Grand Archives. Here you will have to face some new kind of Enemies which includes Hollow Soldier(Royal Guard), Gertrude's Knight, Boreal Outrider Knight and much more. So let's start with the walkthrough. 

Grand Archives

Grand Archives Bonfire

As you head inside there are various ways to explore the Archives just make sure you don't get lost in the Maze. Heading left towards the Door and start your exploration in the Archives while the Door at the Right will get you to the Boss Fight. The first thing you will see straight is the Crystal Sage if you are fast enough then you can kill him in one swing otherwise he will disappear and spawn later in the game.

Take the Staircase up to encounter the Grand Archives Scholars these shoot a standard missile, a missile spray and one attack that shoots wax at the player. Once you are done taking them down then Wax your head first and move right and fight with the Lothric Knight. Waxing your Head is because when you head to grab the Soul the Hands that come out to grab you will cause Curse in addition to damage as well.  

Get inside the room with 2 Crystal Lizard and then head upstairs take down two of the Scholars and then Drop down the Ladder to get the Shortcut(if you die), take left and kill the Crystal Lizard then head up from the balcony and kill another Scholar throwing Wax at you. Head up left, kill these Archives enemies and walk through the False Wall(Hit it) and get ready to fight the Frost Knight who is going to drop Outrider Knight Armor Set.

Head back from the Secret room and then jump Down from the ceiling if you are running down on Estus. This is a shortcut to get back to the Bonfire. Heading back after the Jump will take you another Lothric Knight, after taking him down head up and you will find few more Scholars. Keep heading left until you get outside and start jumping off the Roof of the Archives. Keep heading on the Top of the Roof and you will encounter 5 Gargoyles in total. 

Get inside from the Open Window and then Take down the Knight on the Left first then head towards the next area where you have cool pieces of Loot. You need to fight three Elite enemies on the Stairs. There is an Elevator on the right if you take that to get back to the First Bonfire and rest to save your progress and upgrade before we get to the Boss Fight. 

Lothric, Younger Prince Boss Fight

Before we get to fight the Actual boss we need to take down a bunch of this Patrolling Guards on the way to of the Castle. Coming to Start the Fight with Young Prince here is what you should know about him first. He is the purely magical boss and is a force to be reckoned with while he's accompanied by his brother and partner boss Lorian, Elder Prince. He is weak to Frost, Physical, and Lightning.

From the Start of the Battle, Lothric won't be joining us, but you do have to Fight Lorian(Elder Prince) who has a great Fire Sword. he also Teleports from one place to another quickly, so the only thing you must focus on is to keep him close all the time and dodge all his attack to get your Perfect timing for the Heavy attack. 

In the second Phase Prince Lothric will join the fight and now you have to deal with Lothric and Lorian. Prince Lothric is going to cast multiple tiny homing magic projectiles into the air which will float until locating you and then beam towards you. When that spell is cast, just roll through them. Move in for attacks on Lorian during his windows after combos and while Lothric is inactive. 

Take them down with ease and at the end, you get the souls of Cinder and Lit the Bonfire to save your Progress. Thus completing the Grand Archives Walkthrough and continue with the Consumed King's Garden or you can check out our Dark Souls 3 Wiki Page to know more about the Game.
