After fighting with Father Gascoigne in Bloodborne Part 3 Walkthrough in this part, you will be heading to fight Vicar Amelia, the next boss. But before that revisit the girl that gave you the music box. Now you will have two choices, first either Give Red Jeweled Brooch or not. It is best not to give so that you can use it later for fortify weapons. Through insights try upgrading your character levels each time you are visiting Hunter’s Dream. Talk to the Doll and by paying some cost you can get more strength this will help you later. Now if you want a Flamesprayer to go Central Yharham and talk to Gilbert, the first window on your right after crossing the lantern. He will give you the item. Instead of using Oil, the weapon uses Quick silver bullets.
With the key obtained after defeating the last boss, you will be heading to a new section of the game. Return to the place where you killed with Father Gascoigne last time. Take the stairs on right and go up, open the huge gate on your right. Go up and pass the tunnel on your right, take stairs and go up. You will reach a room with the chest on the left of stairs to exit. This chest will give you Blood Gem Workshop Tool, that you can use to fortify weapons by kneading blood games into them. So now through Hunters Dream, you can use the Red Blood Game that you got from the brooch. Go up near the door and there will be a cut scene. You are in Cathedral Ward. An NPC on the right end can give you a rune if you kill him. Light the first lantern. The game difficulty level rises a bit once you are in a new area. Guards outside will drop Quick Silver bullets and Blood Vial.
You can visit Hunter’s Dream and the old man will tell you about Holy Chalice. Go to the weapons section and use the Red Blood Gem on your current right-hand weapon like a Hunter Axe you will get +13 on the attack. If you have enough insights and Blood Echoes visit the Doll and upgrade your level a bit. You must be able to reach Level 21 at-least for the next level. Return back to the Cathedral Ward you will see three passages. One is on the left side, second in front and another one a closed date on the right. If you go from the north gate, there will be a guard outside. You can kill a few guards and return back to the main hall. The first passage on left is the one where you have to go.
Outside you will find one guard, kill him. If you spot glowing items don’t go for them instantly. If you pick it a giant creature will grab, see the creature you will need around 30 insight. If you want to pick something, gather it and run away. If you are caught by the creature your health will fall to 1HP. So whenever you gather any item be extra careful and always escape that place don’t stand near it. One of the locations is on the right side near a tree. Refer the image above. Now there are two paths one is on the right end and other a stairs down on the left.
If you plan to go right you can get a few items but you will have to fight your way out. The first one you will face is a giant enemy with a bell in his neck. If you are low on the level then avoid fighting it and you can plan to return it back later. But if you want to try staying behind his legs and attack. His attacks are very powerful and have a good range. One good thing is that it is slow so you can dodge, go behind and attack him. After killing him go left, if you take the stairs up you will reach a locked gate. For unlocking it you will have to get a Special Emblem that you can purchase from a merchant. On the left you will face a few giant enemies, killing them will give you Blood Shards. At first, there are two big guys, don’t ambush. Distract one by pebble and kill him. Distract another one as he is near to crows if you sneak from the back you will lose health. So lure him a bit away and kill then take down the crows.
Further right you will fight with another giant enemy with a huge iron ball weapon. Kill him also give you Blood Shards. You just have to dodge the combo attack of this enemy where it rolls the iron ball and attack you. So stay a bit far. After performing the combo it will slow down that’s the time you will have to hit him. Once he dies you can find a chest at the extreme end, go right and take stairs down. Cross the pots and you will see the chest on the right that will give you a Tempering Blood Gemstone.
After getting some upgrade stones, get back to the Cathedral, and take the path on the left side. Keep going left and you will reach church with guards and dogs around. Use pebbles first take out the dogs, and then the guards. As you enter from in main entrance at the end there is an item, but also there is an enemy on the left side. If you try to grab it you will be attacked. So be careful, the item you will get inside is Madman’s Knowledge. Next go outside and turn right, and wait there for a while. There is a guard with gun ahead and dogs. Go slowly ahead and when you see the dogs run back and kill them first. Next, you have to dodge the guard’s bullets and kill him. Go right and there is a doo, open it and you will be on the upper level of the church. On your right, you will get a lever. On the left end of a lever, there is another item Madman’s Knowledge. Pull the lever and the stone in the center will move.
Before going there you can meet another character Alfred who will give you Fire paper. To meet him turn around and take a right turn from the circle. In the end, you can see him sitting and praying.
