Deep within the earth beneath Majula lies an anarchic settlement of filth and chaos built by the forsaken souls cast into The Pit. This lightless hell is the resting place of all that the kingdoms of ages past wished to forget, echoing with the bitterness and despair of those who were thrown away. Deeper still, a dim bioluminescence radiates ominously from the mouth of a cavern avoided even by most inhabitants of The Gutter… Black Gulch.
All manner of terrible things have been cast into the Gutter in Majula. Some of the more determined souls exiled to the Gutter sought to scale the walls of the forsaken place and walk the earth once again, but failed and wasted away, mired in misery and resentment.
In a hidden cavern protected by vases full of poison is a chest containing armor known as Havel's Set. The armor appears to be made of metal, which makes it different from the stone armor of the great Havel of lore.
The foes encountered here are:
- Hunting Dog: A mutated canine born from the experiments conducted by Lord Aldia. Hunting Dogs are not a naturally-occurring species and are therefore only found in areas to which they were introduced by the Dragon Acolytes. A number of them were dumped into The Gutter over the course of Lord Aldia's research and continue to prowl its depths in search of anything that might serve as a meal.
- Melinda the Butcher (Dark Spirit): Wherever the lost and wretched gather, those who prey upon them are never far away. So it always has been, and so it is in The Gutter, a settlement of filth and pestilence where the endless struggle to survive has driven its darker souls to seek sustenance through the consumption of living flesh. Beware, lest the cannibalistic legacy claim yet another victim…
- Corrosive Ant Queen: A queen of the species of giant corrosive ants native to Jugo. Only one exists in Drangleic; its presence in The Gutter seems to suggest that it began its life in the laboratory of Lord Aldia's mansion and eventually outlived its usefulness.
