Dark Souls Easter Egg

  • To find the Easter Egg, travel to the Caustic Caverns. Next, you’ll want to find the unique Crystalisk monster named Blue on the eastern side of the map.
  • From there, traverse the caustic waters north until you reach an island with a lone tree in the distance.
  • On the island, you’ll find a bonfire. Sitting nearby is a Knight named Solitaire, a reference to the Knight Solaire in Dark Souls. You can also find a phantom spirit.
