How to Get to Seethewater Cave

Heading north from Seethewater River Site of Grace, continue through the canyon and directly south of the Erdtree symbol on the map, tucked into the rocks on a raised section of rock with a torch-wielding soldier, you'll note an Imp Seal.

Using a Stonesword Key to open the Imp Seal, head down the long winding tunnel beyond to reach a Site of Grace.

Seethewater Cave Walkthrough

Beyond the Site of Grace, drop down off the ledge, grab the Cave Moss and proceed through the opening to the left and face a Leyndell Soldier.

The path will fork where to the right is another Leyndell Soldier around a campfire, with a Budding Cave Moss plant on the northern wall.

Heading from the fork in the path northwest, you'll find a couple of Crystal Cave Moss patches. Drop down onto the ledge below, then land in a river of poison. Grab the two Poisonbloom plants behind you, then sprint into the cavern ahead and reach the patch of land in the center to avoid your poison meter maxing out.

Poisonous Skeletal Slimes will drop from the ceiling throughout the room, so ensure you don't get caught out as they will absorb you into them if they land on you. In the northeast corner of the room is a corpse holding Poison Grease x3. To the southwest, the cavern continues with multiple Fungal Soldiers roaming the waters. Just before proceeding, head up a slope to find multiple Cave Moss patches, and a dead end with a corpse holding Lump of Flesh x4, defended by two small Rats and one Giant Rat.

Now heading deeper into the caverns, loop around the left-hand side of the ridge with the Fungal Soldier above to find an alcove with a corpse holding Preserving Boluses. Now head onwards and defeat the Fungal Soldiers on this level, then drop off of the ledge in the next room to find two pathways.

Going through the tunnel to the southwest, an upwards-sloping pathway holds three small Rats, and at the top, you'll emerge on the upper level of the previous main cavern. After defeating the three Fungal Soldiers up there, a corpse can be found on the left with a Golden Rune (7).


Around the corner to the southeast is a tunnel leading to a room with praying Fungal Soldiers in front of a Miranda Flower. The Miranda Flower is guarding two corpses; one holds Immunizing White Cured Meat, and the other holds the Mushroom Armor set - the Mushroom Head, Mushroom Body, Mushroom Arms, and Mushroom Legs.

Backtracking down the slope with the Rats, out to the room with the waterfall, and take the alternate tunnel to the north, where there will be a giant hole in the ground. Carefully dropping from platform to platform down the hole, defeating the two Small Rats guarding a corpse with Poisonbone Dart x10 halfway down, you'll reach the bottom.

You can now either head up and to the west, or down and to the east. Heading up, you'll reach a dead end with a small Rat, and a corpse holding a Golden Rune (6). Now heading down east, you'll arrive in a small space with the mist wall to the right.

Boss Fight - Kindred of Rot

Kindred of Rot will be a familiar enemy if you have thoroughly explored certain areas of the map, mainly the Lake of Rot and Sellia Crystal Tunnel. Insectoid enemies that are agile and wield spears.

There are two Kindred of Rot in this fight, which can lead you to be easily and swiftly overwhelmed and to expedite your issues the outskirts of the arena have poisonous waters, meaning you ideally want to stick to the center of the arena, immediately limiting your safe range of movement against these relentless enemies.


Performing sweeps and lunges with their spears, and dashes around the arena which also result in a delayed swipe, they are competent melee fighters with physical attacks that are enough to quickly kill you if you mistime your blocks, parries, or dodges. Arguably, the most infuriating and painful move they perform is a flurry of projectiles that it ejects from either side of itself, that rapidly beeline towards you. Each projectile can damage you, regardless of how many have or haven't hit you. You'll want to dodge-roll at the last possible second, just as the projectiles are about to reach you, to clear them successfully.

It's highly recommended to draw some heat off of yourself by summoning a Spirit Ash as soon as you enter the fight, preferably something that can both deal and take damage, something like a leveled-up Mimic Tear Ash.
