Bonfire III
For other uses, see Bonfire.

Bonfires are a gameplay mechanic in Dark Souls III.


Interacting with a bonfire will allow the player to sit at its edge, which refills the player's HP and both the Estus Flask and Ashen Estus Flask uses as well as cancelling any negative status effects occurred in the world - such as poison and bleed build up. Utilizing a bonfire will also reset enemies in the area and cannot be used while being actively pursued by one. The player can also teleport between any bonfire they have lit. When a player dies, they will be revived at the last bonfire they rested at or most recently lit, making bonfires act as checkpoints in the world.

Note: Resting at a bonfire does not reset a player's "Hollowing".

Bonfire locationsEdit

Cemetery of AshEdit

  • Cemetery of Ash
    • Once the player emerges from the enclosed area of the cemetery, turning left as they reach the cliffside and coming to the top of a small incline.
  • Iudex Gundyr
    • Shortly after the Cemetery of Ash bonfire, down a short winding path there is an arena area where the player will fight Iudex Gundyr. The bonfire will appear once the boss is defeated.

High Wall of LothricEdit
