The Excrement-covered Ashes are key items in Dark Souls III. They are one of several umbral ashes that can be found throughout the course of the game.

In-Game Description

Unclean umbral ash coated with excrement.
Perhaps it's possible the handmaid of Firelink Shrine could turn this into a few new things...
"Oh to savor the sweet pungency but once more...


Found in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley.

Head to the lake in Irithyll and look for the entrance to the sewers. Be careful of the Sewer Centipedes in this area and keep a lookout for a small alcove directly across from the stairs that lead to the boss fight. The ashes are on a corpse resting in shin-high water.


Extends the Shrine Handmaid's inventory to include the following items:

Available Item Cost
Blue Bug Pellet 1,500
Dung Pie 50
Stalk Dung Pie 50


  • The stench of excrements is a "sweet pungency" because it is related to bodily functions, something that only living beings can experience. To an Undead, even this unpleasant smell looks like a dear memory.
