Dark Souls 3 Illusory Walls Locations

Before we begin, do note that the locations shared below are in reference to the nearest Bonfire. Below, players can find the locations of all the hidden Illusory Walls in Dark Souls 3.

Illusory Wall #1
Firelink Shrine, Firelink Shrine
Get the Tower Key from the Shrine Handmaiden and head up the spiral staircase in the Firelink Shrine to come across a locked door. Go through the door and cross the bridge to drop down onto the rooftop of the shrine. From there, enter the shrine from one of the archways and hit the Illusory Wall at the very end of the beams. The glowing item should be on the left side – as a frame of reference.

Illusory Wall #2
Old Wolf of Farron, Farron Keep
From the Bonfire, head back toward the swamp and turn to the left side. Continue up the staircase and hit the wall on the left side, right next to where the Crystal Lizard spawns.

Illusory Wall #3
Catacombs of Carthus, Catacombs of Carthus
Players need to head down the same path as the skeleton-boulder and deal with the red-eye enemy. Once done, hit the wall between the candle-lit staircase and the exit on the left side.

Illusory Wall #4
Abyss Watchers, Catacombs of Carthus
Continue toward the Catacombs of Carthus and follow the only path ahead. Once in the new room, go up the staircase on the left and down the ladder on the right side. After heading down, turn right into another room and hit the wall on the right side.

Illusory Wall #5
Old King’s Antechamber, Smouldering Lake
In the same room as the Bonfire, hit the wall that doesn’t have any roots on it. From where the player wakes up, it should be the top-left wall.

Illusory Wall #6
Demon Ruins, Smouldering Lake
From the Bonfire, go down the stairs into a room and head down another set of stairs to arrive at a slightly open area. From there, head inside a tunnel on the right and hit the wall at the end.

Illusory Wall #7
Demon Ruins, Smouldering Lake
Once again, head down the stairs from the Bonfire and into the hallway with a couple of pyromancers. In this area, there should be a tunnel with rats and a large hole in the ground. Dropdown into the hall and hit the wall directly below the hole to unveil the Illusory Wall.

Illusory Wall #8
Demon Ruins, Smouldering Lake
Continuing from the previous location, there’s another Illusory Wall directly behind the one explained above.

Illusory Wall #9
Demon Ruins, Smouldering Lake
From the Bonfire, head down into the hallway with a few pyromancers and inside the tunnel that’s got a hole in the ground. After dropping down, head up the stairs on the left side and immediately turn left to arrive at a somewhat grassy room with another Illusory Wall at the left side.

Illusory Wall #10
Church of Yorshka, Irithyll of the Boreal Valley
From the Bonfire, players need to head out the way they came from and wrap around to the right side. Ignore the enemies and head up the stairs to hit the railing on the right side. The area also has a Crystal Lizard.

Illusory Wall #11
Church of Yorshka, Irithyll of the Boreal Valley
From the Bonfire, players need to head out the way they came from and turn left. Continue to follow the path and there should be an Illusory Wall behind a small set of stairs – it’s pretty out of place.

Illusory Wall #12
Church of Yorshka, Irithyll of the Boreal Valley
For this one, players need to head out the side area (the grassy one) and progress through the dimly-lit room toward the staircase leading to a lake. Directly below the staircase is an alcove with an Illusory Wall at the end.

Illusory Wall #13
Pontiff Sulyvahn, Irithyll of the Boreal Valley
From the Bonfire, head out into the large, open area with a lot of dead giants (and a couple of alive ones) to enter the building at the far end. Immediately after entering the building, the Illusory Walls should be at the left side.

Illusory Wall #14
Anor Londo, Irithyll of the Boreal Valley
Head back from the Bonfire toward the spiral staircase and make sure to turn the lever to lower it. Continue to follow the path and hit Gwyn’s statue to reveal the Illusory Wall.

Illusory Wall #15

From the Bonfire, proceed toward the Winged Knight and inside the room with a ladder. Inside the room, head up the ladder and hit the wall on the left side of some wooden barrels.

Illusory Wall #16
Oceiros, Lothric Castle
Progress through the area until there’s a room with two wooden chests. There’s an Illusory Wall behind the wooden chest on the left.

Illusory Wall #17
Champion Gundyr, Untended Graves
After defeating Champion Gundyr, continue toward the unlit Firelink Shrine and there should be an Illusory Wall where Irina of Carim is supposed to be.

Illusory Wall #18
