The Dreamchaser's Ashes are a key item in Dark Souls III. They are one of several umbral ashes that can be found throughout the course of the game.

In-Game Description

Umbral ash of one who dreamt of joining the Undead Legion. With this, the shrine handmaid will prepare new items.
In the end, the dream chasers who wandered aimlessly in the rotted forest found a sense of fulfillment.


Found in the Farron Keep, on a corpse hanging on a window near to the Old Wolf of Farron. To reach it, exit the chamber and walk along the right-hand ledge of the fortress. Climb up a staircase and hit an illusory wall before reaching the corner with the Crystal Lizard to reveal the body.

  • The icon shows an ashen hand that is clutching what appears to be the Pendant from Dark Souls, an item that had no practical use in the game.
    • When the Shrine Handmaid is given these ashes, she will ask the Ashen One where they found them. Upon telling her, she will comment how they must have belonged to "one most foolish indeed", perhaps hinting at players trying to figure out the hidden use, which did not actually exist, for the Pendant after Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of Dark Souls and Dark Souls III, said he'd either choose the Pendant or nothing as his starting gift.
