You can find the Spiritcaller Snail in the Liurnia region to the north of Limgrave. You can reach this area by going through or around Stormveil Castle. Once you reach the area, go to the northeast side of the lake. You will find some land that you can use to get out of the lake. From there, go south and locate the jellyfish spirits near the cliff. Follow the cliffside down to the Road’s End Catacombs. At the end of the catacombs, you will fight the Spiritcaller Snail boss.

As stated before, the Spiritcaller Snail doesn’t attack. Instead, you will be contending with a much greater foe during the fight; a Crucible Knight. Crucible Knights are difficult enemies that are clad in armor and can dish out a lot of damage with each attack. Each time you manage to kill one of the summoned knights, another will come in to take its place. If the fight lasts long enough, the boss will summon two knights instead of one to help finish you off.

The key to this fight is to make it go quickly. Use a spirit summon to draw attention from the knight away from you. Use your newfound freedom to search for the boss. The boss will be invisible throughout the fight but can first be found in the back right corner of the arena. Run back there after summoning your spirit and get as many hits in as possible before the boss disappears. You will now need to locate the boss a second time. After the first location, the boss typically spawns in the middle of the left side of the arena. After that, it will go to the back of the arena. Each time a Crucible Knight is defeated or you deal damage to the boss, it will appear for a short period of time before teleporting somewhere else.
