After meeting up with the large crow in Death’s Door, you’ll be sent off to The Estate of the Urn Witch. The map is large, and there’s actually three different areas before your fight with the Urn Witch: The Estate of the Urn Witch, the Ceramic Manor, and the Inner Furnace. Our Death’s Door guide will show you how to find the shrines and Shiny Things in the Urn Witch’s areas, as well as other helpful tips.

The Urn Witch’s area has four shrines and four Shiny Things. You can find the secrets below.

The Urn Witch Shrine locations

There are four shrines to find in the The Estate of the Urn Witch, the Ceramic Manor, and the Inner Furnace, some of which are hidden behind secrets.

The Estate of the Urn Witch Shrine 1

From right outside the entrance to the Ceramic Manor, you can go north to a seemingly dead end. However, there’s a cut in the hedges that allows you to travel through the bushes to the bricked off part of the map. Go beyond the manor in the top corner and the camera will rotate, showing a new path to the shrine.

The Estate of the Urn Witch Shrine 2

In the Estate of the Urn Witch, there is a set of fire pits. You can find them to the south east of her manor entrance. Light up these up using your fire ability and drop into the newly revealed hole to get to the shrine.

You’ll encounter a bathroom if you go west from the Ceramic Manor lobby. The bathroom will have very shiny floors where you can see the reflection of two vases and a door. Hit where the vases would be according to the reflections to break them, and enter where the door appears to access the shrine.

The Inner Furnace Shrine

At the point where you are in the center of a room with three horned platforms, there is a fourth platform to the north. Shoot the platform with your bow and arrow to call it over. Ride it to the other side and follow the path for the shrine.

If you missed this going through the first time, you’ll want to head to the Urn Witch’s Inner Furnace door and go south, past the entrance where she was holding Pothead captive.


The Urn Witch Shiny Things locations

There are four Shiny Things to find in the The Estate of the Urn Witch, the Ceramic Manor, and the Inner Furnace: the Engagement Ring, the Old Photograph, the Sludge-filled Urn, and the Rusty Garden Trowel.

Shiny Thing 1: Engagement Ring

From the main room in the Ceramic Manor, take the western path until you get to the ballroom. Defeat the spinning miniboss here (if you haven’t already) and climb up the ladder. Cross through the rafters to get to the Engagement Ring.

Shiny Thing 2: Old Photograph

From the main room in the Ceramic Manor, take the eastern path, crossing through the room with the single chair and the fireplace. In the following hallway, there will be a lantern you can use your fire ability on. Climb the ladder that appears after lighting the lantern, and cross the rafters to claim the Old Photograph.

Shiny Thing 3: Sludge-filled Urn

At the Urn Witch’s Estate (the garden outdoor area), head to the fountain in the center. From here, head to the western part of the estate. Look for a small gap in the bushes, and walk through it.

Walk toward the ladder to the north, and climb it. Use the tunnels and anchors to keep along the path. You need to do a plunging attack from a nearby ledge to get into the tunnels, and you need the hookshot ability to use the anchors.

Toward the end of this path, you’ll need to fight several swarms of enemies that appear from doors. At the end, you’ll be in an empty room with the Sludge-filled Urn on the side.

Shiny Thing 4: Rusty Garden Trowel

Head south from the entrance of the Ceramic Manor. Go west at the fire pit, leading you to a handful of pots on tiles. The back of the Old Photograph Shiny Thing tells you which pots to break, but for convenience, we’ve marked them above.

Use arrows to break these pots (using your sword might break other pots nearby). Once the correct pots are broken, the statute will move, leading you to an area with the Rusty Garden Trowel.
