Full Red Hall of Cages Walkthrough
A full walkthrough including all the items, enemies and bosses is shown below. You can add links, images. and other details.
Red Hall of Cages is the eigth area you will encounter, after going through the Castle of Storms. Located underneath the Castle, the Red Hall appears to be a prison, with those punished becoming absolute monstrosities. The grim hellish nature of this place just speaks death, and is bound to give you a fair deal of it too.
Upon entering the Red Hall, head up the stairs to the left, then climb up to the top-most ledge to obtain 3xShockstone and a Bag of Salt. These items will be guarded by a few Caged Men and Vile Guards. Head down the stairs and collect 10xPoison Bolt from the ledge opposite the ladder and continue heading downwards. Head right and get on the ledges aboves the Gaoler, with a Vile Guard standing on it. Here you will be able to use your Vertigo Brand to walk on the ceiling through that exit to your right, past the Caged Men on the platforms and into the entrance on the top. Here you will have to jump through the gap, passing through the Obelisk to reach the Mad Jester. Above him you will find a Crystal Sphere.
Then jump through the gap and walk back the way you came, but this time on the floor instead of the ceiling. You will find a set of Patched Rags, Patched Hood, Patched Gloves and Patched Skirt in the chest. Continue heading left, back in the Red Hall. Pick up the Lightning Storm incantation. Now jump down the ledge and head to your right to find an unclaimed Sanctuary. Claim this sanctuary for a Creed of your choice by placing the appropriate idol.
From the Sanctuary, head out to the right and you'll find the Masterless Knight standing next to a Teuthis Shield. Speak to him and then head back to the Sanctuary, leaving to the left side and head down the stairs. Keep going left, past the various Torturers, Caged Men and Vile Guards, until you run into a Clay Phantom. Here you'll find a Type 46 Tower Shield on a ledge above you.
From here, you'll want to head down the ledges all the way to the bottom floor. Watch out for the flamethrowers along the way though. At the bottom, head left to unlock a gate using the lever, and then head back to the right, down the stairs to a door on the right edge. Note this point as you will be returning here in a bit. Go right and use your Shadowflip Brand to jump up to the ledge and continue heading right, past the Hanged Men. Be careful with the Hanged Men as they can overwhelm and stunlock you in their great numbers if you do not kill or run past them fast enough. At the right-most side, you'll see an exit that you should walk through VERY SLOWLY as it leads to your fall on the other side. Just jump over to the middle ledge, and continue across to the other side.
In this room you'll find a Tachi, and a couple of Split Swordsman to fight. Continue heading right and climb up the long ladder to unlock a shortcut to the Masterless Knight and your Sanctuary. After that, head back down the ladder, and go all the way back to the left, past the room with the Hanged Men, back to the point we asked you to note before. This time, climb down the ladder and reach the bottom floor.
Go all the way to the left by a wall underneath where the Gaoler was to unlock an illusory wall that leads to a Vile Charm (video location). Now head back to the right, past the crushers and make your way across the ledges, heading downwards and to the right till you reach a solid floor with a Gaoler. From here head left past the enemies to a locked door. Open this door and on the other side you will find ledges that you can climb up. Use your Shadowflip Brand to reach the top where you will find 3x Soldier's Poem. Now head back down, through the door and go right and keep going right whilst staying on this level, jumping across ledges till you reach a lever. This lever unlocks a shortcut to the ladder which leads to the Masterless Knight and the Sanctuary.
After using that lever, head downwards till you reach the next floor. From here, head right till you find 3 Crushers that you need to make your way through. Head down that ladder, and then head left, jumping across the ledges on the spinning wheel to a chest guarded by a Clay Phantom. In this chest you can find Steel Armet, Steel Curiass, Steel Manifers and Steel Greaves. From here, jump down and head right, going down the stairs towards another Clay Phantom, standing atop a ledge. Head down from that ledge and keep going right till you reach the wall. From the wall start going left, still going down the slope, till you reach the other wall and a ledge with 3xCharred Doll on it.
Now keep making your way lower to the right till you come across another Gaoler, standing in front of a ladder going down. Take the ladder down and head left to fight a Red Lord, protected by a Heartseeker. You need to kill the Heartseeker first in order to do damage to the Red Lord. After killing them, head slightly to the left and before the edge of this floor leading to another spinning-wheel, you will see a group of walls that lead up to an opening (Video Location). Here is where you can find the Despondent Thief. Use the Obelisk to make your way to the top of the room to find her.
After speaking with her, head back down, but instead of going all the way down, stop just a level above the floor and head left, down the slope till you come across another Obelisk. Use it, along with your ability to jump from wall-to-wall to descend down the path (video). Then you can grab a Gray Pearl at the bottom and loop around to collect a Relentless Ring, or just head out to the right using the exit.
When you head out to the right, climb up the long ladder that leads you to a small platform with a Caged Man, with a pouch containing a Bag of Salt and a Stone Merchant. Then you need to head to your right, whilst jumping across the spinning-wheel platforms. On the third wheel heading right, jump from it while towards the bottom of the wheel, to a small platform with a couple of Jurney Bottle placed on it. Just continue to walk into the wall there to open a secret passage that leads you to the Cran's Pass and a close by Sanctuary. This sanctuary is owned by the House of Splendor creed. (video)
After that, head back out to your left, back in to the Red Hall, and make your way back to across the spinning wheels, to the bottom of the ladder you used to get to that platform. From here continue heading left and pull the lever to activate an elevator that takes you all the way to the top. However for now, just head back to the right, and down the long stairs. Then continue down the ladder that is below the stairs, and keep heading to your right till you find a Shrine. You can rest here and have it saved as your checkpoint before the next boss fight.
Now head back to your left, and down the first soft ledge/bridge you see. Continue making your way to the left until you are at the edge of the floor and have a few ledges above you. Climb onto the ledge to face The Tree of Men. For tips & strategies on how to defeat this boss, see The Tree of Men page. After defeating the boss, head back to the bottom and make your way to the left, into Hager's Cavern.
