How to Get to Gelmir Hero's Grave
To the west of Volcano Manor, you can either loop around the side of the cliff and head south just west of the FIrst Mt. Gelmir Campsite Site of Grace, or head north from Hermit Village, and from the Primeval Sorcerer Azur Site of Grace, ramp off of the large stone column and drop down to reach the domed building housing this Dungeon.
Heading inside, ride the lift down, and proceed into the room ahead to find a Site of Grace.
Gelmir Hero's Grave Walkthrough
Beyond the Site of Grace, head down the stairs to the left and as you reach the bottom of the second flight, there will be a large sloping pathway lined with running lava. This is a similar setup to Fringefolk Hero's Grave, where a giant mechanical chariot runs along the center track, up and down, creating an insta-kill hazard for you to contend with.
As you begin running down, the chariot at the very bottom will begin riding up. The first two alcoves hold Skeletons, and you'll need to duck into one of the alcoves to avoid the chariot. The next set of alcoves, which you can run to as the chariot rides above you, holds a Skeleton archer on the right along with a Grave Violet.
The third alcove holds a Skeleton on the left, and the fourth is an alcove on the right with another Skeleton. The final sprint you'll want to make is down the last bit of track, then performing a running jump across the lava to the debris-filled path on the left. Grab the Grave Glovewort (7) plant as soon as you jump across, then head into the room up the steps.
You'll be immediately ambushed by a Page, with another further down the corridor to the south. There are also a number of Undead Soldiers scavenging on the ground on either side of the room, but can be easily dealt with. Grab the two Grave Glovewort plants immediately to the left and right, then head to the sheltered portion of the room (to the right of the stairs), defeat the two Undead Soldiers scavenging there, and grab the other two Grave Glovewort plants.
Heading up the stairs, there is another Undead Soldier and Page staring at the corridor rhythmically spewing fire. You can sneak up to the swordsman and get a backstab in, often knocking them into the flames and defeating them instantly. On the opposite side of the room, you'll see a Ghost Glovewort (7) plant.
Timing it to avoid the fire, sprint through the corridor and strike the column producing the fire to lower it and stop the hazard. You can then either head into a room to the east, or to the south.
In the room to the south, there is an Undead Soldier to the immediate right, and tucked in the furthest back alcoves are two Pages. They guard a corpse against the back wall that holds a Golden Rune (6). Heading through the passageway to the south, you'll be on another track for a chariot, so be careful before stepping out. If you time it and run up the slope to the right, you'll find a corpse holding a Stonesword Key. Though this is a dead-end, you can stay in the corner of the dead-end to avoid getting hit by the chariot as it reaches you and turns around. This will likely kill you as you try to run back down (as the chariot won't go down the track far enough for you to sprint back down to an alcove), so weigh up your options.
Heading down the slope, there is a Skeleton warrior in the alcove to the left, and a Skeleton archer in the right alcove. The next section can prove difficult, as you will need to run to the section of the track with the drop-off either side, then drop down into the chasm, hugging the track wall, to land on a narrow ledge lower down. A corpse is on the eastern side holding a Smoldering Butterfly.
Head through the small tunnel in the center of this lower platform, and grab the Grave Violet in front of you. Round the back of the column is a Bloodhound Knight, who upon defeating it will give you the Bloodhound Knight Helm, Bloodhound Knight Armor, Bloodhound Knight Gauntlets, and Bloodhound Knight Greaves. The corpse that the Knight was resting in front of will give you another full set of armor; the Gelmir Knight Helm, Gelmir Knight Armor, Gelmir Knight Gauntlets, and Gelmir Knight Greaves.
Turning around 180-degrees, you'll see a ladder to climb. At the top, a corpse is hidden amongst the pots on the right that holds Root Resin x5. Carefully crouch out of the arched window openings and step onto the wooden beams. Below you will be another chariot track. Wait for the chariot to pass, then drop down and collect the Grave Violet, and in the alcove to the east, there is a Cemetery Shade who will drop the Mantis Blade.
At this point, you'll be just beyond the chasm where you previously dropped down. Backtrack to the first slope, and upon reaching the point where you jumped to the left onto the debris with the fire trap room beyond, counter to logic, begin non-stop rolling through the lava down the rest of the slope.
The chariot won't follow you, so don't worry about getting hit. Turn to the left and you'll enter a room with a Grave Violet plant and a chest containing the Ringed Finger weapon.
Go back out of the room and you'll note an alcove across the lava in the left corner that has a Grave Glovewort (7) plant.
Roll over there, collect the plant and you'll be able to drop down a gap along the back wall onto a platform, and then down again to land near a set of double doors. Grab the Grave Glovewort (7) plant on the western wall, then head east, and at the bottom of a small ladder is a corpse that holds Beast Blood x3. Head back up the ladder and open the doors to a larger room with a set of stairs leading down towards the boss fight.
Boss Fight - Red Wolf of the Champion
A large red wolf, this boss has a near-identical moveset to the Red Wolf of Radagon. The Red Wolf of the Champion is both quick and powerful, and continually switches up its attacks by using both ranged and close-quarters combat. His biting and swipe attacks are quick and usually part of multi-hit combos, so play conservatively before launching into an attack as the Wolf can very easily catch you out mid-animation.
The Wolf can summon a magic fiery sword that it swings with its mouth. Thankfully these attacks are much easier to see coming and easier to punish than his basic attacks. Block the swings or dodge towards the Wolf as it slashes and you should be able to hit back or guard counter.
Any time the Wolf retreats, it will summon homing missiles (which can either be individual or in groups of three) which hang in the air for a moment before flying toward you. These can be easily dodge-rolled, though keep an eye on the Wolf as it will often close the distance again and begin attacking before all of the missiles are gone.
Upon defeating the Red Wolf of the Champion, you'll earn the Bloodhound Knight Floh Ashes, and there is a chest at the back of the arena that holds a Deathroot.
