Altar of Despair Information

The Altar of Despair is reached by breaking a window next to the Lumenflowers Garden lamp.


There is currently no official lore mentioning Altar of Despair.

NPCs in the area



  • Ebrietas, Daughter of the Cosmos



  1. A Call Beyond





Once you drop out of the window into the area you kill the two blue aliens and then proceed down the elevator which leads to Ebrietas Daughter of the Cosmos.
For information on the boss fight, go to Ebrietas' page.
This is an optional area.


If Annalise is slain (either by the player or by Alfred) and queenly flesh is acquired, interacting with the altar allows you to resurrect her. She would appear in her normal position in Cainhurst Castle afterwards.

      Roms body is there because Ebritas wants to ressurect rom, keep in mind you can resurrect the queen from here.

        It literally explains why the altar is there and everyone is asking why it says for nothing. If you kill the queen of the vilebloods at cainhurst and get the queenly flesh I believe you take it there to resurrect her and she will be at cainhurst.

          The elevator leading to Ebrietas is broken on one of my characters. It happened when I got summoned while riding the elevator

            the actual altar is likely a reference to nausicaa of the valley of the wind by hayoa miyazaki, and its not the first one by FROM, ash lake also strongly resembled a location from nausicaa.... director Hidetaka Miyazaki obviously has a great deal of admiration for his namesake

              So question : Lets say you kill Annalise and get her flesh, get to new game+ Do you still have the flesh and if so what happens when you put it on the Altar when that games Annalise is still alive?

                just had a thought about using Iosefka's blood vial might revive her, but cannot test this cause I've used it

                  Do you have to kill ebrietas to use the alter on annalise? Or could I ignore the boss fight altogether and revive her anyway?

                    The Altar itself05 Jul 2016 14:42  

                    "Apparently Ebrietas is especially familiar to one of these servants, and bestowed her profound understanding of time to him(her). Unfortunately the human body is too frail to withstand such bombardment of knowledge, and the servant was eventually transformed into a vacuous spider like Rom, whose remains has the capability to reverse time (although the process would kill any normal living things)." If you look at the Altar itself it looks like Rom so I assume that is the corpse of the servant Ebrietas was fond of which not only explains why she's looking at the altar when you arrive and pays no attention to you but also why it can bring Analise back. Also despair because it makes Ebrietas sad? Sorry if everyone worked that out already or already has a theory that puts myn to shame but I wanted to share it after I thought it up

                      why is ebrietas looking at rom's corpse before you start the fight and after beating ebrietas how can you speak with rom's corpse ?
