Parking Lot[]

After leaving the Seraphim Hotel War ends up in the middle of a vast plaza, Vulgrim can be found in the center of it. This part of The Crossroads is essentially a large open space with many destructible elements that yield Currency Souls. It is also worth to mention that this area is rich in Crows so if one would need to replenish Health it is a good place to do it.


Collect 500 Souls Upon receiving it from Vulgrim he will also give War the Hoardseeker. In order to advance further to the Library, War has to wake up the Tormented Gate and to do this he needs the Earthcaller. Vulgrim will award it for 500 Currency Souls. Completing this task will earn To Move a Mountain Achievement.
