Once you’ve made your way through a portion of the Mother of Mothers area, you will arrive at the Archcathedral Rooftops. As the name suggests this area is high above the cathedral below. To help you navigate this place, use our Archcathedral Rooftops guide below.

Archcathedral Rooftops Map

There are a number of items, enemies, and places to explore on the Archcathedral Rooftops. Use the map above to get your bearings.

Room 1

The first room you enter features the Prie Dieu. Kneel at it then head to the right (ignore the left room for now). Make your way up the next room using wall jumping. This will bring you to Room 1. Room 1 is a long vertical room with a number of enemies in it. Fight your way through these enemies until you reach halfway. There is a ladder here. Climb the ladder up into the next room and complete the simply platforming to reach the Collectible: Ribs of Sabnock, the Guardian. Return to Room 1 and head right into the next room.

Embossed Mask of Crescente Room

To the right of Room 1 is the Embossed Mask of Crescente room. If you’ve followed this guide you will have this item in your inventory. It can be obtained after beating Exposito, Scion of Abjuration. Use the Embossed Mask of Crescente in this room. A lever will activate. Hold off on going up yet. Instead head to the right into the next room. Prepare for a short fight.

Room 2

When you head to the right from the lift you will end up in a small walkway. Here you need to fight an enemy that is sort of like a weaker version of Esdras. Defeat him to earn the Quest Item: Mark of the First Refuge. Head into the next room which I will call Room 2.

Before doing anything in Room 2 make your way down to the bottom left exit and head into the next area. Complete the fight here then proceed into the next room to tag a Prie Dieu. In this room you can go down a ladder, or head to the left. Head into the room on the left to get a Sword Heart: Heart of Oils. Grab it then return to the Prie Dieu room. Don’t bother heading down the ladder yet, instead go back to Room 2.

You need to platform your way all the way to the top of Room 2 to reach a switch. Once you hit the switch a door on the floor above you will open, this is what we want to happen. On your way back down Room 2, equip your Relic: Three Gnarled Tongues and the Relic: Blood Perpetuated in Sand to reach the room on the right which is an HP UP. Once done return to the Embossed Mask of Crescente Room.

Room 3

Take the elevator up to the next floor. Head to the right to trigger another battle this time against the Second Refuge. Defeat him to receive the Quest Item: Mark of the Second Refuge. Continue heading to the right until you reach a room with a lift. Ride the lift up. Halfway jump to ledge to the right. Use the Relic: Three Gnarled Tongues and the Relic: Blood Perpetuated in Sand combination to reach the Collectible: Lunate of Keiya, the Butcher. Head back left and continue to the top of the room. Hit the switch here then head back to the elevator room. Go left now.

Make your way through the outdoor area then head inside. Hit the switch here to trigger the lift. Ride the lift up to get the Children of Moonlight. Leave and continue heading to the left. Take the ladder down and ride the lifts to reach a switch that turns on lifts back to Room 1. Return up top and continue left to reach a new area called Wall of Holy Prohibitions.
