|Ashen Mist Heart|
|Ancient Dragon - gift, drop|
|Enter memories of dead giants.|
The Ashen Mist Heart is available from the Ancient Dragon after talking to it in the Dragon Shrine. If the player attacks the Dragon before it gifts them the item, then it is dropped after killing it.
The Ashen Mist Heart allows the player to go into the memories of several long-dead giants within the Forest of Fallen Giants, the discarded clothing of King Vendrick in the Undead Crypt, as well as a deceased ancient dragon in Brightstone Cove Tseldora.
The locations for the memories are as follows:
- Memory of Vammar: Located near the area that the player first meets Mild-Mannered Pate.
- Memory of Orro: The giant tree is located directly after the area where the player fights The Pursuer as an actual boss.
- Memory of Jeigh: Located next to The Place Unbeknownst bonfire, which requires the King's Ring to access. The Giant Lord is also fought here.
- Dragon Memories: The crystal the player must examine is located directly underneath the dead ancient dragon in the area that the player fights The Duke's Dear Freja in Brightstone Cove Tseldora. In it, the player is transported to what is presumably the Unformed World, where they encounter the corpse of an Ancient Dragon and retrieve the Ancient Dragon Soul.
- Memory of the King: Located in the Undead Crypt near King Vendrick's discarded clothing. Crown of the Sunken King is required to access it.
- Memory of the Old Iron King: Located atop the Foyer, where a suit of armor and a long katana are placed. Crown of the Old Iron King is required in order to access. Sir Alonne is also fought here.
