How to get to Dark Souls 3: Ashes of Ariandel

Getting to Dark Souls 3: Ashes of Ariandel is confusing, like every other piece of Dark Souls downloadable content. In this guide, we’ll explain away the confusion.

It’s actually simple, provided that you know what to do — and you’re playing a high-level character.

How to get to Ashes of Ariandel

Warp to the Cleansing Chapel bonfire in Cathedral of the Deep.

The moment you materialize, you’ll hear someone speaking. That’s Slave Knight Gael, a new non-playable character.

Speak to him and choose "Accept" in the dialogue box.

You’ll warp to the Painted World of Ariandel, the snowy land where Dark Souls 3: Ashes of Ariandel takes place.


Your journey doesn't end here. Be sure to check out the rest of Polygon's Dark Souls 3 guide, which offers everything from tips for beginners and returning masochists to detailed walkthroughs of every area — including all of the secret, bonus content.
