Dreamchaser’s Ashes

Items unlocked:
  • Large Titanite Shard
  • Eastern Armor Set / Shiva of The East Armor
  • Washing Pole

Excrement-covered Ashes

Location: Irithyll of The Boreal Valley

Items unlocked:
  • Dung Pie
  • Blooming Purple Moss Clump

Where to find Paladin’s Ashes

Location: Cathedral of The Deep

  • Lloyd’s Talisman / Undead Hunter Charm
  • Duel Charm
  • Lloyd’s Shield Ring
  • Crescent Axe

Prisoner Chief Ashes

Location: Irithyll Dungeon
How to get: You’ll need the Jailer’s Key Ring to get this one. Get to the church surrounded by toxic water near the Profaned Capital, then climb the roof. There’s a set of stairs there that lead back into the dungeon. Follow them and you’ll find the keys at the end of a corridor. Then teleport to the Irithyll Dungeon bonfire, go into the large prison room and jump down one floor. Go all the way to the right – the last cell you’ll see will have two doors and a fancy chair inside. The ashes are on the corpse on that chair.
Items unlocked:
  • Human Pine Resin
  • Karla’s Outfit

Xanthous Ashes Location

Location: Irithyll Dungeon
How to get: Drop down to the lowest level of the prison, where there’s a dozen jailers with branding irons. Keep to the left and go all the way to the end. Open the cell with the two corpses – the ashes are on the one closer to the door.
Items unlocked:
  • Xanthous Armor Set
