Infusion gems are materials used to infuse weapons in Dark Souls 3. They let you change the type of damage your weapon does, but also influence the attribute scaling levels. You’ll only need one to infuse a weapon. After that, you can reinforce the infused variant with titanite, like you would the regular. This guide will show you where to find infusion gems in Dark Souls 3.
