・Sacramental Bud ×1

The Lake of Rot causes the rot gauge to build up instantly, and once in Scarlet Rot status, the player suffers continuous damage until the gauge is removed. Since it is difficult to suppress the gauge buildup, it is recommended to use Preserving Boluses, which can remove the Servants Of Rot gauge.

Use Flasks To Heal Your HP

Even though you are affected by the Scarlet Rot state, this does not mean that you will die instantly as the damage from your HP will decrease slowly. For that, you can set your flasks to all Flask of Crimson Tears and try to drink it from time to time until you reach the next Site Of Grace.

How To Raise The Bridge

There is a switch gimmick at Lake of Rot, and when stepped on, a bridge appears. There are five switches, four on the way from Lake of Rot to Grand Cloister and one near Dragonkin Soldier of Nokstella in the east. Stepping on the four switches will take you to a higher level. The scaffold near Dragonkin Soldier of Nokstella is for fighting to avoid Scarlet Rot status.
