Xanthous 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 a sorcerer who explored the golden sorceries of a long-lost land. With this, the shrine handmaid will prepare new items.
They were called xanthous scholars, but some foolishly imitate them by simply dressing in yellow.


Found within a cell in the Irithyll Dungeon. The cell is found in the final cell block with the seven Jailers patrolling it, just before the Profaned Capital.
