The Fallen City contains a large number of houses with narrow alleys and easily-accessible roofs. Bodies of its past inhabitants, and possibly past Arisen and their respective Pawns, litter the streets. This underground city is located on top of a high plateau and one may fall off its edge if not careful.
On the first visit, the Fallen City will be devoid of enemies; however if the Bitterblack Sanctum is entered, but immediately exiting back through the same door, without engaging Daimon, the Fallen City will be populated with a number of foes including four Strigoi and a dozen Corrupted Pawns; a Cursed Dragon and Death may spawn.
Post-Daimon, the creatures tend to appear in two possible formations:
Unless otherwise noted, items may be assumed to be obtainable at any time.
It is possible to run through the city on the roof tops in order to avoid most of the enemies and quickly get to the Sanctum.
If the Arisen stays in the Fallen City long enough, Death and a Cursed Dragon will continue to appear, alternating, one at a time.
The Wakestone will re-spawn every seven game days (Pre- and Post-Daimon).
Entering and exiting the Bitterblack Sanctum is necessary in order for the Fallen City chests to re-spawn in Pre-Daimon Bitterblack Isle.
Ashe's Account at the Monument of Remembrance describes his ruined village, furthermore Barroch states that the Arisen and he both wander about the imaginary world of their "host", who is, as Olra also says, Daimon. It can be surmised that The Fallen City is indeed where Ashe grew up, as it is a portion or recreated memory of his ruined village before he was made Arisen.
