Pinwheel is the boss that lies in the depths of The Catacombs, and arguably the easiest boss in the entire game. He is located beyond a fog wall, across the valley floor containing blacksmith Vamos at the bottom of the Catacombs that is being patrolled by the Wheel Skeletons. After entering the boss fog, you approach what appears to be a gigantic tomb with the lid ajar, allowing you to drop down into Pinwheel’s lair and trigger a cutscene. First seen in the official Preview, Pinwheel appears to be a necromancer body of sorts being controlled by three magically influenced masks. It awards one of its three masks when killed, and the others may be purchased from an NPC vendor first found in the Tomb of the Giants, after he relocates to Firelink Shrine. Once defeated, access to the Tomb of Giants will be granted by way of a ladder in the far corner of Pinwheel’s lair. Also upon defeat, the Rite of Kindling will be automatically obtained, thus allowing the kindling bonfires to an even greater degree and permitting the player to obtain up to 20 estus flasks from a fully kindled bonfire.
