Embers are consumable items in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

No Unkindled can ever truly claim the embers that burn within a champion's bosom, which is precisely what makes their yearning for warmth so keen.
Gain the strength of flame and increased max HP until death.
With the strength of fire, the summoning signs of Unkindled become visible, and seekers of embers can be summoned to join in co-operating. But beware, the embers may also attract invaders.


General information[]

When an Ember is consumed, the player will become a Host of Embers. This will enable invasions and summoning, as well as restoring all of the player's HP and increase their maximum HP by 30%.


There are other methods to become a Host of Embers without using an Ember. This can be useful for players that lack Embers or who simply want to conserve them. These include:

  • Defeating a boss in the player's own world.
  • Defeating a boss while summoned as a white or gold phantom. This will also award an extra Ember.
  • Defeating a Host of Embers while invading by using the Red Eye Orb.


  • Players should take the area they're in into consideration before using an Ember. Being a Host of Embers near high-traffic PvP areas, such as the Farron Keep or Irithyll of the Boreal Valley, can quickly lead to players being overwhelmed by the amount of invasions that can happen in a short timespan, likely wasting Embers in the process due to deaths that would've been avoided by consuming the Ember at the end of the area.
