* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpycK7uzVJM A different variant of the Kiln skip]] involves the use of the Purple Coward's Crystal (used to exit matches in the Battle of Stoicism, a multiplayer battle arena unlocked by killing Artorias, the boss of the DownloadableContent), an item swap glitch to use the crystal, and then immediately using a bonfire warp item. If the last bonfire you rested at was the Lordvessel at the Firelink Altar, you will instead be dumped in the [[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon Kiln of the First Flame]].

* You can skip the Bell Gargoyles by using abusing the triggers for death in this game. Death by falling into a BottomlessPit (or similar) in this game consists of two parts: the game going into a TopDownView in order to display you falling to your death, and the game killing you proper. The former can be triggered without progressing to an actual death (such as using a parry to clip into the stairs before the building containing Andre the Blacksmith and the Undead Parish bonfire). Doing this causes the gate into Sen's Fortress to not load at all, allowing you to walk past it without ringing the Bells of Awakening (one of which is guarded by the Gargoyles).

* Fall Control can be exploited ruthlessly to survive any high fall that doesn't go out of bounds, by simply saving and quitting when you touch the ground, but before the game properly finishes registering your death. This causes the game to return you to where you impacted the ground, without killing you.
* Similarly, there is a method that allows you to survive lethal falls even without Fall Control in specific locations by using a combination of a plunge attack and a roll (the latter which causes you to become invincible for some frames) in order to cause the lethal fall damage to co-occur with the invincibility frames that rolling grants, cancelling all damage.
