If you don't want to use CE, because you don't want to or can't if you're on console this is the best way to farm these: Unpetrify the first hollow (or both if you want herbs and heals) in Aldia's crib and it'll drop 2 ascetics. Burn one of them at the first bonfire and then run back in and kill the hollow(s) to get 2 back. Mirrah nig will always spawn, but all you have to do is step over the threshold to the next area. He'll f-uck off and you can kill the hollows in peace. They should always drop down in the beginning and once you're at the back of the room just walk back to the stairs at the left and they should be there. Kill them and feather/bone out. Rinse and repeat. To get 33 ascetics it took me around 45 minutes, but I also went for the herb outside the mansion. Then go to the bonfire with the giant tree who gives you seeds of giants. From the bonfire jump across the gap, run to the door and up the ladder. WALK, yes walk, along the wall to the very end and pick up the 3 red eye orbs. There's also 1 effigy on the way there, but it can be "risky" picking it up. I'd recommend you walk a little bit further into the item after getting the prompt to pick the eye orbs up. If you have to, dodge the big nigga. Then drop down to the latter and let yourself get killed. That's the easiest way of keeping your souls safe in case you're staying below 40k SM and wanna have some backup souls. Repeat this 33 times and you'll have 99 eye orbs. This whole thing takes around 100-110 minutes. If you have a kind friend you could always only farm like 20 or so orbs and then drop them to your friend, back up your save data and then do it again until he has a full stack that he then drops for you. I don't know how save file management works on 8th gen, but I know you could use USBs for XBox 360. Just unplug the USB before dropping the items, disconnect, reload your save and etc.
