The Mendicant's Staff is a staff in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A staff with a small bowl attached to the tip, similar to a mendicant's crook.
Absorb additional souls from fallen foes.
The staff's history is unclear. It may be a relic of an ancient serpent's greed, or a ritual artifact used to summon souls.
Skill: Steady Chant
Boost the strength of sorceries for a very short period. Works while equipped in either hand.


Dropped by Man Serpent Summoners in Archdragon Peak


While not the most powerful staff, it can be particularly effective for any player when farming for souls, as it can be wielded in the right hand and used in conjunction with the Shield of Want and Covetous Silver Serpent Ring variants for maximum souls.

Since players can still get the boost to souls obtained even if they fail the requirements, this is one staff that all players should try to attain.


  • Increases souls acquisition by 20% whilst this weapon is wielded in either hand.
  • Can be traded with the Nestling in exchange for the Sunlight Shield (only once per playthrough).


Reinforced with Titanite.
