Homeward Bones are miscellaneous items in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Bone fragment reduced to white ash. Return to last bonfire used for resting.
Bonfires are fueled by the bones of the Undead. In rare cases, the strong urge of their previous owner's [sic] to seek bonfires enchants their bones with a homeward instinct.


General information[]

Teleports the player to the last bonfire that they rested at. Homeward Bone is identical to the miracle Homeward in function, but requires no Faith nor Attunement slots.

Homeward bones have a short casting time, but may be interrupted if the player is staggered while using it.


If the Homeward Bone is used immediately after killing an enemy, yet before said enemy's souls have been collected, the souls will not be given to the player upon loading at the last bonfire. One should always make note to allow time for the souls to collect before teleporting, especially after boss fights.
