Where to get the Pilgrim’s Perch Key in Lords of the Fallen

Stomund from Lords of the Fallen

Like any good game in the Soulslike genre, Lords of the Fallen is filled with intricate explorable areas featuring branching pathways and well-hidden secrets. To uncover them all, you’ll have to take things slow and be extremely thorough, but even if you’re checking every nook and cranny, you’ll occasionally find that you’re missing an important item or key needed to pass through specific barriers. For instance, early in the game while exploring Pilgrim’s Perch, you may come across a door or two that requires a Pilgrim’s Perch Key, which you actually won’t be able to find in the area itself. Don’t worry, though – we’ll tell you where to get it below.
Where to get the Pilgrim’s Perch key
The Pilgrim’s Perch Key can be purchased for 9,500 Vigor from Stomund, Captain of the Fidelis in Skyrest. You can find this NPC standing to the right of the vestige, but he’ll only start selling you items after you’ve exhausted all of his initial dialogue, so be sure to speak with him multiple times if you haven’t already.

It’s perfectly reasonable to see the cost of the Pilgrim’s Perch Key and feel a bit overwhelmed – that’s an absolutely staggering amount of Vigor to obtain early in the game. However, it shouldn’t take too long to farm it up, especially if you use our favorite XP farming spot a bit further into Pilgrim’s Perch. Plus, the cost will be worth it, as you’ll be able to open various doors throughout Pilgrim’s Perch that lead you to new areas and rewards.

How to get Severed Hands in Lords of the Fallen and where to donate them

The Lords of the Fallen undead scene.

Lords of the Fallen offers both cooperative and competitive play, and if you’re mostly in it for the latter, you’ll want to know all about Severed Hands and the Shrine of Adyr, which is where you’ll need to take them to earn yourself some rewards for all of your slaying. Read on to find out how to get Severed Hands and where to find the Shrine of Adyr.
How to get Severed Hands
Severed Hands are obtained by defeating other players in PVP. This can be achieved by slaying someone who has invaded your game or by invading and taking down another person in their game by using the invasion option at a vestige. Once you have some Severed Hands, you’ll need to track down the Shrine of Adyr.
Where to donate Severed Hands
You can donate your Severed Hands to the Shrine of Adyr. This shrine won’t be accessible early in the game, so you’ll need to progress through the Forsaken Fen before you’re able to visit it.

To reach the Shrine of Adyr, make your way to the bridge where you face off against the Ruiner boss. On this bridge is an Umbral entity blocking a path you can only see while in the Umbral Realm. You can cleanse the entity by passing under the archway on the opposite side of the bridge and soulflaying a spot on the backside of it.

How to get Pilfered Coins
Pilfered Coins are obtained by engaging in co-op with other players. This can be done by visiting a vestige and either joining another player or having them join you for seamless online play. Every time you slay a boss of any type, you’ll gain some Pilfered Coins, which you’ll then need to take to the Shrine of Orius.
Where to donate Pilfered Coins

You can donate your Pilfered Coins to the Shrine of Orius back in Skyrest. While facing the vestige here, go left just a little bit and through the door near a Stomund, Captain of the Fidelis. Down the stairs here and next to Nathaniel, you’ll find the Shrine of Orius.
