The Trial of Perseverance

The Trial of Perseverance is a survival challenge activated by interacting with the small altar found below Lothric's Throne in Firelink Shrine.

  • The Trial of Perseverance consists of 10 waves, which you must survive by killing enough enemies during each wave to advance to the next one.
  • Each wave has different sets of enemies, and only one of them is randomly selected and required to clear to progress to the next wave. They are ordered by relative difficulty, so the trial starts off fairly easy and ramps up in difficulty.
  • Each wave only ends once enough enemies have been killed. You can see your progress by looking at the Boss Wave HP bar that is active during a wave.
  • The damage done to each enemy is directly transfered to the HP Boss bar.
  • Each wave completed will reward Reinforcement Material directly, the kind improving with subsequent waves.
  • Eenemies drop no items, but they award more Souls than normally within waves.
  • Primordial Titanite can be obtained at the end of each wave if the player enables one or more curses from the Altar of Affliction.
  • Drop amount and rates for Primordial Titanite are the same as Bosses when the curses are enabled.
